Casa Scriroco is the ideal place to stay. It's perfect,large and has everything you need. We opted to stay here because it was fully equipped like a regular home, we could of stayed in a hotel but because theyre were 3 of us so we thought this would be better and we were right. Carla the property manager was a gem,she brought us water and everytime we texted her she responded in minutes or showed up. When we arrived we were running on a delayed schedule from the airport but Carla was there the minute we were in the vicinity of the building. The place was super clean and the beds smelled like fresh linens. A nice welcome after traveling. The home has everything from pots and pans to additional sheets, cleaning services and a cute patio (with swing) in a cute rustic garden. The area is Tulum Puebla which has its benefits. We were near stores and lots of great affordable restaurants and a reasonable night life. A five minute drive (20 minute bike ride) gets you to the beach. We preferred the public beach (which is free and parked on the side of the road bringing our own sandwiches and beer in a cooler) compared to visiting a hotel for the day and paying crazy prices for food and beer) I'm so glad we stayed there. Tulum is relatively small so it's easy to get around, but having a big home base really worked out for us. Tip; since Casa Scriroco offers a kitchen with pans etc. We saved a bunch on meals so we could go out at night and have amazing dinners and drinks. Big plus since the food at the nicer restaurants is outta this world. Seriously try the octopus and stay at Casa Scriroco!
The pictures do it justice - the pool area is as beautiful as the pictures show. This was our first trip to Mexico, and the owners send a pdf with very helpful information on the area and some recommendations for restaurants. We did not necessarily want to be on the beach, since we like to cook and have a separate room for our children, so this fit the bill. Note that accessing the beach can be a bit tricky; there are only a few "public beaches" with no amenities; in general, you need to pay or eat at a beach club or hotel for access and toilets. The condo and complex is very quiet and relaxing.
