Casa Malca in Tulum, Mexico
Gorgeous views, wide-open living spaces and a superb beachfront location--welcome to Casa Malca on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. Just outside Playa del Carmen in the pueblo of Tulum, this delightful sanctuary, whose name translates as The Pure House, consists of two villas featuring 14 bedrooms. You might stay here for an intimate pas de deux, or take over the entire complex for a gathering of family and friends. Along with the casually elegant Mexican Riviera ambiance you may also take part in beachside yoga or a massage, and you will be sure to enjoy the services of a full staff, including a private chef and concierge.
Away from the hustle and bustle of city life and far from the crowded beaches of Playa del Carmen and Cancun, and your typical so called glamor resorts, you will experience Casa Magna's rustic luxury. What is rustic luxury? Ocean breezes instead of air conditioning. The soft glow of candles instead of neon lights. Fresh, simply prepared food. It's about getting back to basics in style and comfort on one of the most gorgeous beaches in the Caribbean. Rooms don't have air conditioning but for most of the year do have a lovely ocean breeze. Water is hot although the pilot lights can blow out in tropical winds from time to time. Electricity is available certain hours of the day, generally from dusk till midnight. All a small price to pay for a tranquil vacation in paradise.

Reviews for Casa Malca
Casa Malca is a stunning hotel, beautifully designed. Both the common areas and the rooms are wonderfully boho chic, yet not too rustic. Around every corner is a Instagram photo opp. We had an excellent beach-facing room (#18) with floor to ceiling windows. The A/C worked very well for our entire stay. The staff was incredibly hospitable and personable, happy to assist with whatever we needed. They work hard even when guests are asleep, removing sea weed from the beach and cleaning pool and beach areas. I would highly recommend. I'm a big fan of design hotels and this did not disappoint. Thank you, Casa Malca!

A group of four couples booked a stay in Casa Malca for three nights starting 05/18. We arrived late in the afternoon and were greeted by Jesus, who was in charge of the front desk. What a rude and unwelcoming person. He demanded that we (or the taxi driver) bring the luggage to the entry of the property. After a long wait to get us accommodations close to each other we ended up dispersed all over the property. I can not imagine how this establishment has an operating licence. The property is in construction with steel rods, construction debris and trash all over. The pool furniture was full of soiled towels, no one to pick them up. The sun beds and chairs are ultra-rustic without a cushion or anything to protect your bones. The pool water was turbid and you can see the filth by the water marker on the side wall. Apparently the little houses/rooms were designed and executed by a novice in masonry; no architect, engineer or designer. The beds have no headboard so be careful no to hit yourself. The furniture is hippie-inzpiered (they think Philippe-Starckish, NOT!) and scarce and torn and the bathroom doors can not meet a security code since they open inward and lock with a latch from the inside. I had to fix the hot-water handle in the shower as it got stuck and could not return it to the closed position. My wife found a towel with BLOOD stains and one of our friends found his shower full of hairs. In the morning, breakfast was a disaster with the serving crew unable to sort out the simplest request. We sat for over one hour and ended-up leaving because a sunny-side down order of eggs was too much to handle. My worst hotel experience EVER and I have done trips in all continents and at all price levels. This was such a RIP-OFF at around $500 per night that, after deciding to leave and presenting the evidence to Jesus the next day, he reimbursed even the first night(mare) to all of us! AVOID CASA MALCA AT ANY COST

We visit Philosophy Restaurant at Casa Malca Tulum, the staff was very helpful and welcoming, they showed us the grounds of the hotels and the beach. Its tastefully decorated. We were invited to stay as long as we wanted after our lunch. We sat outside , sand of our feet and a great view of the ocean. Drinks were excellent and the mexican food was incredible. Amazing place

This is a fancy hotel that has a very good restaurant. We had tacos, guacamole, fish... Everything excellent. Definitely, the best tacos we had in Tulum. Very friendly service. Price on the higher end. Parking is on the street. Not sure if the hotel gives you access to the beach but my understanding is that they can not really stop you. Check the website for the rooms: some of them are pretty interesting.

We chose Tulum for our son's birthday celebration, we wanted a special place, and had high expectations. Casa Malca hit the mark and beyond. The setting is magnificent, the beach was beyond beautiful, loved the pool, intrigued by the underground steam/pool, fascinated by the original art, thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts, especially the juevos rancheros. Take a cocktail to the top of the observatory at sunset, the view is memorable. Casa Malca is a special place, I'd go back n a heart beat.
