Hotel Blanco Tulum is a luxurious adults-only resort located directly on the edge of the town of Tulum itself, and only around a 10 minute bike ride south to the beach (hotel zone).
The 3-star hotel prides itself on its incredibly comfortable rooms, relaxing rooftops with amazing views of the sunset, a stunning pool above the jungle canopy, and of course a spa for all your healing needs.
Starting at around only 900 pesos (during low season), Hotel Blanco Tulum is an incredible budget-friendly option considering the amenities and quality of the rooms.
With WIFI throughout the property and each room having air conditioning, a flat-screen TV, a mini-fridge, a coffee maker, a private bathroom with a shower, hairdryer, and wardrobe, this is one of the best deals you’ll find in the area.
Located on the property itself are several shared amenities including a hot tub, sun terrace, a bar, a tour desk, and of course a swimming pool. A la carte breakfast is also an available option.
There are three different rooms to choose from, the Master Suite, Deluxe Room or the Superior Room. The first thing you may notice is that each room has it’s own private balcony that either opens up to a jungle view or the courtyard (which in itself also has a jungle vibe).
If you’re looking for an excellent romantic getaway then we’d recommend the Master Suite as it includes a massive king size bed as well as a private jacuzzi and 40 inch smart TV. The other two rooms are also great options if you’re looking for more of a budget-friendly accommodation.
Overall, Hotel Blanco Tulum is one of our favourite stays if you’re looking for luxury and to save a bit of money. The location is not in the town itself which can be annoying if you’re looking to walk to shops and restaurants. However, bikes can be rented on-site.
The place is incredibly clean, and well kept and the staff is very attentive and friendly. A few issues we ran into are the mosquitos (they need nets or spray), construction nearby, not enough towels (also requires deposit) and the pool was dirty at times. But again, for the price, Hotel Blanco Tulum should definitely be on your list of places to stay.
