Hotel Los Lirios Hotel 0 star
Tulum, Mexico
Amy Adejokun Section editor

A basic little hotel right by the beach and the sea, offering some of the most heavenly picture-postcard surroundings you'll find. This place is best suited to less demanding guests as it offers very little in the way of facilities.

    Location 7.0 /10

    The Los Lirios is located on the seafront, a 45-minute drive from Playa del Carmen. Cancun International Airport is over 62 mi away, with a transfer time of around an hour and three-quarters. The hotel is located in a small, quiet and spacious residential area around a 5 to 10-minute taxi drive past the little village of Tulum.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The Los Lirios was built in 2001 and is a small hotel consisting of 6 one-storey buildings with no facilities to speak of. On arrival in the basic, rather outdated little reception you'll be warmly greeted in Spanish or English. Vegetation edged with stones arranged along the ground marks out a series of sandy walkways which twist and turn the short distance down to the beach, the hotel's crowning glory. Some welcome shade, meanwhile, is provided by the palms. By way of entertainment, the hotel offers free yoga lessons for guests at weekends. During high-season, massages are available from 8:00am to 5:00pm whilst during low-season, you can request this service at reception. There are no facilities here for children.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    Of the 32 guest rooms at the hotel, 9 have a frontal sea view, 8 have a side sea view and 8 overlook the gardens. The 7 suites on the first floor, meanwhile, overlook the sea and have palapas roofs. The ceilings are also impressively high at their peaks. All of the rooms have the same layout and the same amenities with the exception of the suites, which are more private and consist of two separate parts on different levels. On one side, there's a double bed or king-size four-poster bed with veil in the suites, whilst on the other there's a lounge area furnished with rattan tables and chairs. The rooms are lovely and bright, with a floor area of around 40m² and white-rendered walls. The rooms, which are made up of a mish-mash of materials, are not exactly spotless and there doesn't seem to have been much thought put into the decor. You will find all the basics here, though, including individual air-conditioning, rather worn bedding and a telephone (switchboard from 7:00am to 11:00pm). Only the suites have a safe, and the decor in these units is also far more coordinated. Out on the balconies, meanwhile, you'll find hammocks that can accommodate two people, whilst the mosquito nets that hang at the windows do little to prevent insects from getting in. The bathrooms are pretty average in size and are tiled from floor to ceiling. They come with a bathtub, a large mirror and a hair-dryer.

    Food and drink 6.45 /10

    The one and only restaurant at the Los Lirios stands facing the Atlantic. The hard floor and palapas roofing here means that a pleasant sea breeze blows through here, and the surroundings here are extremely basic. During the high-season, a breakfast buffet is served here from 7:30am to 10:00am (this changes to an American-style breakfast during low-season), before the à la carte menu (which incurs a supplement) takes over for the rest of the day until 10:30pm. The cuisine served here is Caribbean, with a selection of fish and seafood dishes prepared using ingredients caught by local fisherman. In fact, you'll find over 14 fish dishes on the menu! Unfortunately, if you're a meat-lover, you'll have to make do with a pizza or a snack. The hotel's bar is also located in this area and serves a variety of cocktails for your enjoyment.

    Beach 8.95 /10

    If you come out of the restaurant, walk a little way along the sand and go down a few stone steps you'll find yourself on what is, according to our team, the most beautiful of the beaches found between Tulum and Cancun. The last two hurricanes to hit this area caused an increase in the already plentiful amount of sand in Tulum, and you'll enjoy perfect peace and quiet here, in this little taster of paradise which stretches south for some 25 mi. There is nothing in the way of facilities here, just an immaculate carpet of white sand stretching as far as the eye can see between the vegetation and the crystal-clear turquoise waters, whipped into waves by the wind. The beach is monitored, and the shoreline is pretty even in any case. Do bear in mind, through, that there are a few rocks in the water in places, but you needn't worry about wearing sandals. Wooden deckchairs are provided but there are no water sports facilities here.

    To know

    This little hotel is particularly popular with couples (especially honeymooners) and tour groups, who tend to stay here for a night or two at the most. Over half of the hotel's clientele is European, whilst many Mexicans also descend upon the hotel at weekends and during their holiday periods, namely in April and August. You'll also find a large proportion of American tourists here in December.

      The highly contemporary lines of the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya are a bit disconcerting at first, but they blend in magnificently with the surroundings. The resort is impressive and is liked by guests for its modernity, originality, the quality of the facilities and its excellent layout that means there are no long distances to cover. Whether you are staying as a family or as a couple, you are sure to enjoy your stay here, provided you have a liking for grandeur and modernity.

      Facing fine sand and turquoise waters near Tulum, here you are on a large and beautiful resort with a classic and refined style. Stretching over 30 acres, this all-inclusive luxurious club brilliantly combines various activities for all types of clientèle with complete tranquillity. The high quality facilities are best exemplified in the children's club for example. The concept is simple: dreams come true at the Great Keppel Island Resort! Other interesting details that make a difference include: bookings are not necessary for the restaurants, no cards are needed for the towels, and there are no compulsory bracelets! What a relief!

      The Royal Tulum is a fairly luxurious 5 star hotel complex. It is a quiet complex with not much organised entertainment and is exclusively reserved for adults. Refined and elegant, the decor is very carefully thought-out and adapted to a clientèle looking for tranquillity.

      The Azulik hotel is a cluster of huts on the seafront that afford a charming view of the coast and the beach. This environmentally-friendly resort principally caters to couples looking for somewhere they can be in complete harmony with nature. The Azulik villas, built entirely using noble wood, have large private terraces from which guests can admire the spectacular view of the sea in the east. On the other side, their floor to ceiling bay windows look out to the rainforest in the west. We recommend this establishment to all those looking for a romantic spot where relaxation will be your only pastime.

      The Papaya Playa Project is the perfect hotel for those who enjoy the 'Gypset' (Gypsy + jet set) lifestyle. Young artists from all over the world gather here to be at one with nature, relax, and celebrate important events. While the hotel promotes ecotourism, it doesn't neglect the luxury side either. The menu and the selection of artists invited to design the entertainment programme are exclusive.
