teetotum |tē-to-tum| - noun

1. A small spinning top spun with the fingers, esp. one with six sides lettered to determine whether the spinner has won or lost.

2. A small laid back boutique hotel situated in Tulum, in Mexico's Caribbean Riviera Maya. Because of the design, amenities, and ambiance, Teetotum exists as a unique hotel experience.

The modern, sleek space and attention to detail, from the handcrafted bench on your private patio to the fresh squeezed tropical juice at breakfast, create a hip atmosphere of comfort and relaxation. On the road to the beach, Teetotum lies just off Tulum Pueblo's lively main street, and a stones throw from Tulum's magnificent white sand Caribbean beaches. In addition to the hotel, Teetotum offers a bi-level restaurant and lounge, where our chef prepares signature dishes using local ingredients while creating new and interesting flavor experiences.

Relaxing massage 60min

The intent of this massage is to harmonize the body, releasing all stress, tension, back pain, and light muscle pain. It quiets the mind leading to total relaxation. During the massage, various techniques will be used, such as shiatsu, Swedish, lymphatic draining, and light reflexology.

Swedish massage 60min

Very relaxing massage with oil where soft body tissue is manipulated using the hands. It relaxes tense muscle, eases stress, relieves pain and can improve sleep quality. The Swedish massage increases blood circulation and helps you achieve relaxation and an overall sense of well-being.

Reflexology 60min

This technique uses the fingers and thumbs to put pressure on the nerve endings in the hands and feet, stimulating the neural pathways of the corresponding body parts. This helps to balance the nervous system and has a healing and relaxing effect throughout the body and mind.

Testimonials Teetotum

Great place to stay!

This quaint boutique hotel is well located for your Tulum visit. The star rating is appropriate, though some may be way more critical. The staff and proprietor Richard are the best part because they are so warm and helpful. I would definitely stay here again on a future trip. Thank you for the great experience.


Petit & Charming with great Location

I visited Tulum las week and stayed here at Teetotum, loved the room I took on the second floor, it has a/c. They have a big patio full of plants and hammocks, roof top, free bikes and excellent high speed wifi with comfortable knocks all over. Perfect for digital nomads like myself. Will stay again as they offered 10% off for repeat visits!


The Best Hotel in Tulum!

Large, lush garden courtyard and deck, with plenty of space for social distancing. Great open air restaurant and Mezcal Bar! Spacious, clean rooms. Everything is new! Modern, minimal design. Relaxed, low key atmosphere. Super friendly, helpful staff provides hand sanitizers, public areas are cleaned after use. Best location on the road to the beach and close to town. Free bikes and pool. Best Fish Tacos!

Cool Chilled out hotel

Just spent a week at Teetotum with our 10 year old son and we all really enjoyed staying at this hotel, The staff were all so friendly &the freshly cooked wonderful. After a day visiting the sites , beach, cenotes or Xel Ha park this was the perfect hotel to return to and chill in the courtyard , pool and bar. Its a 2 minute walk to the collectivo stop which thanks to Richards advice we used to get everywhere we needed to. It has a cool chilled out vibe where we felt perfectly at home thanks to Richard and his team.
