The hotel is indeed petit as most hotels un Tulum. This is a well kept secret, nice hidden jewel in Tulum. We ended up kind of thanking Poc Na hotel for bumping us out so we could enjoy at least such a nice and relax stay for a day after hassling around for the bumping from the first hotel... I...

The hotel itself has an awesome location and is beautiful walking by. I loved the white buildings and the thatched roof look. I really appreciated the new upgrades of an air conditioner and outlets in the rooms - they were very appreciated (April 2017)! I find that I don't sleep well if I'm hot at night so the AC units...

This tiny eco-resort is a little slice of heaven!!!!! I went as part of a yoga retreat in February 2015. The ride from the Cancun airport is quite long, about an hour and a half, but so worth it. The food was all gluten-free, dairy-free and pescatarian. Our food was included as part of our yoga package and they totally...

Shambala Petite is an extremely beautiful beachfront resort on the calm blue waters of the Mexican Riviera. I recently attended a yoga/fitness retreat there and had a mostly wonderful time. The yoga/movement space had a magical view and feel of the ocean and sand. The living spaces varied, mine was basic, clean and felt safe, though lacked an overall sense...

My husband and I stayed at the Shambala Petit this February as part of a yoga trip. We'd never participated in a yoga retreat before and Shambala Petit was the most amazing place for yoga and just a wonderful beach vacation. Roberto, Mari and the Shambala staff prepared us three healthy and delicious meals and day and there was always...

Although the hotel is aesthetically beautiful and the location is perfect - right on the beach in the center of things - I will never go back because the owner is passive-aggressive, a poor communicator and at times downright rude. Simple requests for things like hangers or granola before yoga class to prevent low blood sugar were refuted or ignored....

Thank you for taking the time, for an amazing review, I wish the next retreat you decide to organize, you use those amazing skills to really communicate your needs. As a Retreat leader you should know that you get what you paid for, no more no less. And please don't make your personal experience, the experience of all the people...

We stayed here over Christmas and enjoyed everything about it. Best part is the all vegan food (breakfast and lunch) that is served at set times for all guests. Sitting around the table sharing experiences. Really need to come back here.

In the novel "Lost Horizon," the author describes a place that is harmonious and an earthy paradise. Shambala is that - a refuge from the outside world. The sound of the sea is ever present; gentle breezes moderate the temperature and the mosquitos; and the cabanas are simple, clean, and comfortable. I attend a yoga retreat at Shambala and it...

We only stayed here for one night as we decided to stay in Tulum an extra night and needed a place last minute. When we arrived in the morning there seemed to some confusion as the manager had not received our details from booking.com. He was very friendly though and immediately got a cabin prepared, but it was not the...
