Our family of four LOVED the Paamul Hotel. This was our first stop on our Yucatan vacation, and we loved our elegant seaside room, with the lovely porch overlooking the beach. We spent all day at the beach, ordering drinks and food to our shady chairs and playing in the pool and the ocean. Snorkeling equipment was available but there wasn't much visibility when we were there; we could have gone kayaking or paddle boarding instead (offered by hotel) but we just ate fresh coconuts, etc. The second day we went to the awesome adventure park, Xplor, which was right down the road (around ten minute drive). That was also a complete blast. After our week of fun at three different hotels, both kids said this one was their very favorite due to the awesome people who worked there and the incredible location. Thank you so much, Paamul Hotel staff for going above and beyond to give us a great stay!
Spent four days here and enjoyed our stay. Hotel situated right by sea and great views with good sized rooms and fresh clean bedding/ towels etc. Efficient A/C and great to have a litre of drinking water per person in our room every day.
Breakfast included in our stay and very interesting local choices. Evening meals really good with great fresh fish and meats options. Would recommend going for fish dishes.
Interesting settlement around the hotel that started as a mobile home destination and has grown into a mini town of varying sorts of mobile home that have evolved into palapas ( buildings with palm tree branches as roofs, these cover the mobile homes underneath and some have evolved into 2 story houses). Very friendly folk there and very Mexican, we were told.
Hotel easy to find as all that was needed was to find Paamul on the overhead signs on the motorway and follow the signs. Actual entrance down concrete road less easy and just need to keep eyes open for sign for hotel by an area of concrete by side of road.
Good diving available at hotel site and really good value with John who has been doing this since 1960! Less good snorkelling off beach as only sea-fans and a few fish and also quite murky too.
Only negative was lack of beach beds so used chairs which we OK but unable to have the traditional siesta after lunch!
