- Teetotum HotelNov 02, 2013
A small boutique-y hotel, the Teetotum is super comfortable and appealing. It’s got just 4 rooms, all with a simple (and very cool) mid-century style that made me feel happy just walking in the front door. There’s a nice plunge pool and solarium plus a small restaurant on-site, which is great for breakfast or if you want a midday beer. The problem with the place is that it’s located pretty much in a no-man’s land, midway down the road between Tulum town and Tulum beach. And for me, that’s pretty much a deal breaker, especially given the rate. Why pay a premium to be in the middle of nowhere? For the same rate, I’d rather be at a lesser beach front hotel or a just-as-nice hotel in town, close to the restaurants and hubbub.

For me, this super-cool hotel is the sweet spot in Tulum. It's not on the beach--but that means it has electricity and hot water around the clock. It's also not smack in the middle of town, so it's quieter. It's a bike ride to the beach (and they have bikes you can use), or a walk to town. Then again, you might stick around because the rooms are so hip, there's a plunge pool and roof deck, and the restaurant is yummy. There only four rooms, though, so book ahead. (One potential drawback: all rooms have one large bed, so it's not great for friends traveling together.)

I have mixed feelings about Teetotum. On one hand, there’s no denying it is a classy little place. There are just four rooms, artfully decorated, with air-conditioning and comfortable beds. There’s a nice sun deck, and a plunge pool for cooling off. On the other hand, it’s not on the beach nor is it truly in town; it’s on the edge of town, and a fairly long walk from most restaurants, shops and services. That nice sundeck I mentioned overlooks...the parking lot and the busy road to the beach. In Tulum, the perennial dilemma is whether to fork over the cash for a chance to stay on a spectacular beach, or save your money and enjoy the conveniences of town. Teetotum manages to offer neither benefit, yet still charges a pretty penny. I really like how this hotel looks, but I can’t help thinking, Why would anyone stay here?
