Small, rustic hotel on the sands of a Caribbean beach. The emphasis is on enjoying the blissful surroundings without distraction.
The small, rustic Hip Hotel is located directly behind a delightful long stretch of sugary white beach overlooking the turquoise Caribbean. The thatched cabaña-style accommodation sits right on the sand, with a porch or balcony where you can admire the picture-perfect views from a gently swaying hammock.
There are few modern trappings – no TVs or phones in the rooms, for example – and the focus is on relaxation and enjoying the tropical surroundings without distraction. Rooms are minimalist in style, with king size beds, double showers and ceiling fans. The hotel has a good restaurant, with numerous other dining options within easy reach.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
This hotel has historically had some criticism on Tripadvisor. It is clear however that they have noted these comments and have now addressed them all. Only criticism is that the hotel is close to a relatively busy road, so early morning noise is an issue. It is however on a lovely beach, which the staff keep fastidiously clean.ND Umberleigh
"Large rooms, good breakfasts."NW, London
"Great to be right on the beach - although the sand does get almost everywhere! No pool so only the sea to swim in."Rl, Belper
At the end of our busy schedule this was the perfect place to relax.JD, Porthcawl
The Hip Hotel at Tulum is situated at the far end of the strip and had delightful views of the ocean. The Wi-Fi is patchy (be warned) but the breakfasts were lovely and the people very helpful .AA, Newport
We loved out 5 night stay at this hotel, staff were wonderful and as its a small hotel offer a very personal service. Massages in the Spa were superb. We were in room 2 with ocean view and it was amazing as its tucked away at edge of hotel site, personal access onto beach and very private - we just loved it. Breakfasts in hotel were all a carte and superb as was dinner in the restaurant in the evening - a truly magical place to stay and so happy JLA recommended both the hotel and Tulum to us. We should say that we picked up that other guests were not so happy - maybe we were lucky?NP, Chester
