Riviera Maya Resorts and Hotels:
One place we stayed in Tulum that does have electricity 24 hours is the Cabanas Los Lirios Hotel. It is a nice, small hotel.
If you choose to stay here, try and get a top floor (well, there are only 2 floors anyway) room.
There buildings have huge palapa roofs so you get an even better feeling of spaciousness. The rooms are large and each has its own balcony or terrace.
The restaurant leaves a little to be desired but you can always walk down the beach to restaurants in other Riviera Maya hotels.
We have also stayed a few times at Cabanas Tulum. When we stayed there it did not have electricity 24 hours yet and was in need of some renovation.
However the price was right and the location is wonderful. It is right next to Los Lirios and the rooms at Cabanas Tulum open right onto the beach.
Cabanas Tulum has now been leased to another hotel group and has undergone renovation. I will say the place looks great and has gotten great reviews. Of course, it comes with a price. We used to pay about $50/night - now it is about $150-$200 night. There goes our cheap hotel in Tulum. Oh well.
Whatever your preference, there are tons of Mayan Riviera hotels to choose from - starting from before Playa del Carmen and ending at Tulum (you can take a look at our Riviera Maya maps to get a better feel for the location.)
