Wonderful!

We booked the condo at the last minute after another two night booking had fallen through. We now wish we'd arranged to spend our whole two weeks there rather than staying in a much more expensive Tulum Beach Road hotel for the bulk of our stay in Mexico. Tao's like an upmarket sanctuary well positioned away from the crowds on the beach side of the highway but within easy reach of everything you'd want to see or do, including using the free shuttle down to the beach. The free morning yoga, gorgeous pools and beautiful well-equipped condo were just the icing on the cake. Trish, the owner, was exceptionally responsive with all the last-minute arrangements and instructions. She saved us when we might have been homeless!

Beautiful and well cared for home with kind and efficient caretakers. Right on beautiful beach so you can go to sleep with waves crashing. Very relaxing and low key with easy access to snorkeling, ruins, dining, fishing, shopping and more. We enjoyed just laying out on the back deck by the pool. We took our three teenagers and they enjoyed it too. We'd go back!
