Most people don’t regard Tulum as very family friendly, but our experience at Ana y Jose made this vacation an absolute dream for the adults and children in our group. First and foremost, the staff (specifically Daniela ❤️ and Paulina❤️ in concierge) began our journey by customizing our hotel experience to ensure our ultimate comfort and enjoyment. They continued to check on us every day and our group (4 adults and 4 small kids) felt totally at ease and catered to in every way. The wait staff (especially Eymard????????, Miguel ????????and Jorge????????) were beyond accommodating and thoughtful. By the end of the trip, we felt we were leaving our friends and not just staff at a hotel. The rooms were exceptionally well looked after as well. The spa experience was divine. All the adults in our group enjoyed massages and as self-proclaimed spa experts, we can all attest to the skill of the massage therapists there. This was a lovely trip filled with lovely people. We are leaving with heavy hearts but excited that we know we’ll be visiting again in the future.
This is a small hotel with a big heart. Every single person made us feel home and the facilities was just perfect. The room was super spacious for us 3 and we had 2 different pool options. The breakfast is really worthy and super yummy! The sand was perfect to build castles with my son even though we could not use the beach (not a problem of the hotel but the whole riviera maya unfortunately) and despite that, I loved this place. I hope to have a next time!
