First they put me in a room in back that was still being shellacked with some super smelly, volatile, obnoxious toxic coating. I cannot stand to be in this kind of environment as it will with certainty kick off cluster migraines. I then had to fight them for an alternative room>
The alternative room was OK but the neighbors were not. I kept hearing canned laughter and what sounded like TV running at a fairly loud volume. I stepped across the hall, just a few feet away, and politely asked what was up. Two "Yoga Retreaters" in the room told me they were watching Friends reruns... ALL OF THEM. They gave me stink eye for suggesting that they could listen with headphones or something as this was supposed to be a RETREAT location. They basically told me to take a hike. I went to the office to seek a remedy lie move to another room but there were none and the ,management would not do anything about the TV NOISE!
Then they got all huffy when I checked out and tried to overcharge under the guise of "loose accounting".
Groovy and relaxing... NO. I would never recommend this pretentious place.
This hotel is the antithesis of a yoga retreat. In fact I left needing a yoga retreat. We were 'greeted' by a member of staff who didn't believe that we had booked, and then quibbled the price we had paid via booking.com. He showed us into a lovely room, asked us if that was suitable for us, and then said we couldn't possibly stay in it because we hadn't paid enough. He then got out the receipts of other customers to show us how much they were paying in comparison to us (pretty sure that's not allowed).
We stuck to our original price and he eventually showed us another room (which was also nice). It was getting late and he decided that we could stay there. After the initial debate about the price, we never saw a member of staff again. Everyone had simply disappeared apart from a security guard in the evening.
There was allegedly a Thai restaurant attached to the property, however it had closed by 6(ish).
At around 12 hypnotic bass music began to rattle our bones from the club nearby. It lasted until 5am. The showers and tap run salt water too, not freshwater.
The cats are super friendly, and were, arguably, the best part of the accommodation bar its location which is amazing. It is a 3 minute walk to pristine and empty sand beaches. There is also free filtered water readily available which is nice!
With the name yoga shala, I expected great vibes. I was the only one who stayed there and on the first night, their neighbor casa jaguar blared music until 4 am. Couldn't get any sleep. Nice staff but didnt go out of their way. Stuffy room...smelled a little moldy. Restaurant connected is alright, nothing special. Great location though.
We visited Tulum during January and decided to stay at Yoga Shala, it’s perfectly located, right in the middle of everything at a very convenient spot. We stayed at a private room with our own bathroom so it was very comfortable, we enjoyed waking up with the jungle sounds and heading straight to our yoga class at the beautiful yoga space it has. We enjoyed the fresh fruit and juices in the morning and the tasty breakfast they offer at the restaurant. People working there gave us excellent service and made us feel welcome, also gave us tips as to what places to visit. The hotel it’s not beach front but quite accesible as you only have to cross the road and walk a few steps to be there. It has also an amazing boutique with great taste for garments where we were able to purchase a couple things. Our experience with them was great and I would definitely go back and stay there again.
It is 3:30 am and there is still loud horrible EDM outside my window. This has ruined an otherwise lovely stay. If you want to relax don’t stay here!!!!!!!!
I arrived the first night and had to walk through 6 inches of rain water to get to my room. Then I settled in my room to find my bed soaking wet. Apparently the roof of the cottage leaks. They did move me to another room which was very nice.
Beach is great, location is great but don’t near this place if you want to relax.
