Set in the heart of Tulum, approximately 4 miles from the area's beloved Mayan ruins, this quaint hotel overlooks a pearly white beach. Previous guests can't compliment the location enough, citing easy access to the sand, sea and sites as a top reason to return. Travelers also applaud the welcoming staff and the hotel's laid-back ambiance. But don't be deceived by the resort's casual atmosphere. Accommodations feature all the trappings of a high-end hideaway: ample living space, wooden furniture, Wi-Fi access and lofty balconies or terraces (some suites also grant access to a shared swimming pool). Outside, you can explore iconic sites or unwind along powdery, white sands. Afterward, tantalize your taste buds with authentic Mexican fare at the hotel's restaurant and bar; most travelers enjoyed the food served on-site, despite the high menu prices. Still craving more? Escape to the Om Spa, which offers specialty treatments like purifying papaya body wraps.

Critic Reviews


Upscale and intimate, Ana y Jose exudes a sense of romance that draws couples, but many families vacation here, too -- despite a lack of specific kid-friendly features.

Travel + Leisure


Ana y Jose, named after its founding couple, has 24 spacious rooms placed throughout the lush property, which faces a quiet, white sand beach about four miles south of the fortressed Mayan ruins of Tulum.

Made up of a collection of thatched palapas fringed by palm trees, suites reside in the ground or first floors of these traditional huts, and their décor is a reflection of the natural stunning surroundings.
