On my recent trip to Tulum, I stayed at the Aruma Hotel + Boutique. The hotel is beautiful and is situated right in the heart of Downtown Tulum, close to everything, including restaurants and shopping opportunities. The town has a laid-back, bohemian vibe with some of the best service that I’ve experienced on my recent travels. 

The three-story hotel has a variety of rooms to choose from and I opted for the family suite, which overlooked a busy downtown street.  I loved the décor in this gorgeous suite with its bohemian vibe. Although I didn’t use it, the room has a fully equipped mini kitchenette, with everything from pots, pans and cooking utensils – wonderful for those looking to save money when traveling with family or a large group of friends.

The hotel provided a complimentary breakfast, yogurt and fruit or eggs on top of artisan bread. Even though the options were few, the eggs were delicious, the pico de Gallo was freshly prepared every morning and the green sauce was perfect.

This is a small boutique hotel, so the hotel does not provide many amenities but has the most important ones including WiFi and a rooftop pool.  The rooms do not have televisions, to be fair, they aren’t needed as there is so much to see and experience in town that you won’t have much time to watch TV anyway.

The pool is situated on the rooftop, and it’s gorgeous. It’s got incredible views of the town, which is especially beautiful at night and its rooftop bar is pretty great too. 

Even though the hotel doesn’t have its own restaurant, that’s totally fine since you’re within walking distance of some of the best cuisine in Tulum.  The food in town is superior to the food at Tulum Beach.

The only downside to the hotel is that it isn’t sound-proof. Downtown Tulum has quite a few bars which tend to stay open until the early hours of the morning. If you’re looking for a quiet place to stay in Tulum, then this location is not for you.
