Just a short step from the aquamarine waters of the Mexican Caribbean, Alea perches right behind the beach of Tankah, a slightly quieter alternative to the main strip at Tulum.

The hotel has the feel of a typical Mexican beach posada or guesthouse; low-rise and unassuming with public areas open to the tropical sea breeze so that even inside you're never likely to feel disconnected from your surroundings. Step straight out onto the silvery-white sands where loungers are laid out for your enjoyment, or head to the terrace for a dip in the narrow, geometric pool which skirts the property.

Alea designates all its rooms as suites, and there's no doubt they’re spacious. On the ground floor, swim-up suites have direct access to the pool, while the upper level Ocean front suites have perhaps the best views. The restaurant specialises in the delicious flavours of the Yucatán peninsula and further afield in Mexico.

Our Expert's comment

With fewer than 20 rooms, simple Alea could be ideal if you’re seeking an alternative to the big resort hotels commonly found along the Riviera Maya.
