    This is a really special, quaint property that backs up to a cenote. It felt like a very authentic and natural experience for Tulum.

    Would Not Stay Again!

    In looking at the pics, the hotel seemed unique and the fact it was near the beach and a cenote made me decide to stay. What they don't mention is that the bungalows are above what looks like a brownish/orangeish swamp, only has electricity from 6.30 p - 10 am, the lock doesn't make a female solo traveler feel safe and the rainfall showerhead was little more than dripping water. The free WiFi? Nope, none at all (another huge thing i require). The location is also far from ideal, pretty much at the very end of a long, congested road. Luckily i had a rental car and tours planned to keep me busy but overall it wasn't a pleasant experience. For the price, i wish I'd chosen better.

    Still Mangrove feel

    While Tulum continues to grow and develop Manglex is still true to its beginning. It did not bother me, but noticed generators running during sleeping hours from nearby facilities. That includes their fumes and sound. The staff here is top notch. Marisa explained everything in detail well. The Cenote to swim in is delightful. January visit rarely a mosquito in sight and we never used repellant. Bikes were used to nearby beach - greatly appreciated.

    This place is so magical! It's an eco hotel, so anyone who is more into a "traditional" hotel experience this may not be the place for you. But it you've ever wanted to experience nature without giving up ALL the amenities this place is perfect. The staff is insanely helpful too! We loved having access to the private cenote out back and enjoying some wine on the dock at night. The free kayaks, paddle boards and snorkel gear are a big plus too! We checked out bikes 2 of the days and loved exploring Tulum along with some staff recommendations.

    Romantic low-tech beautiful spot

    We loved MangleX. It is a beautiful space in the jungle with a semi-private cenote and easy beach access through a hotel across the street. You get to pay much less than a beach-side hotel, but with the beauty of the mangroves and gorgeous private cabanas. Note that there isn’t electricity during the day, there is no phone service and WiFi only in the lobby. There are lots of bugs and no AC. But, the employees are incredibly friendly, kind, and helpful (Spanish speaking). Breakfast is delicious, drinking water is always available. Stay if you want a romantic low-fi spot that’s affordable, sweet, and beautiful.

    I loved being on our own private cenote. I loved waking up to breakfast It really created a very home space for me. The beds are extremely comfortable Definitely could upkeep with the mosquito nets on the windows and the little cracks where the mosquitoes would get in. I am definitely going to stay here again
