Pavo Real Tulum Resort

has anyone stayed recently?  anything you can offer?  We're booked for spring and really looking forward to checking out this little spot.  We are all about the beach, a clean bed, hot shower and someone making my meals.

That really is an interesting name for a resort. "Real turkey" in English. Looks like it is rather unknown, considering nobody has responded as yet.
I hope you get some answers.

Actually, it means Peacock.  In old Spanish culture the peacock was associated with luxury, royalty, etc.  In the Dominican Republic peacocks have the run of many resorts and strut through dining halls trailing their tails.  Have always loved to watch them but can't stand their screeching calls.
About six months ago this "resort" came up on this forum.  Some posters thought that it would nickel and dime you.

Pretty sure we aren't eating peacock every November.
 
I know. It's one of those words in Spanish that cover more than one meaning.
 
Here in Norte Tejas if you ask for pavo at Fiesta Foods or Carnaval you for sure are going to get turkey, not peacock.

AI doesn't mean they 'can't' nickel and dime you.  ABR decided they could.   $ for coffee machine,  $ for mini fridge,  $ for crib,  $ for wifi, etc etc...and some AI's charge for 'top shelf' swill.

The Mrs. and I took a tour in 2013.  The old Freedom Paradise, stayed Christmas 2004?.  They have remodeled the rooms and looked nice. Small place, rooms on or very close to beach not in jungle.
Good beach and nice bay.  If I remember a bit of a swim to reef to see fish.  We have not been able to stay there yet.
I think if a few people stay there it will become more popular.

How is the snorkeling from the beach? I read some reviews from Trip Advisor. It reminds me of ABR. Might have to keep this one on my radar.

If it's the old Freedom Paradise, it's not "really" Tulum.
Freedom Paradise was/is on Tankah.

I copied this from their website:
 
The central restaurant "Chichen Itza" offers a rich buffet.
You can also benefit from the "Cobà" restaurant, which features an à la carte menu and works on reservation. It serves authentic Mexican food, and a great variety of grilled food (for an extra fee).
 
 
 
Extra fee for grilled food?

I had friends stay at Pavo Real in February and they were very disappointed.  They didn't think that the food included was very good (to be fair they're both restauranteurs in the US) and the drink glasses were very small.  They also said the beach is very shallow and you have to walk quite a distance through dead coral and rocks to swim or snorkel.  The pools provided were nice, though.  Keep in mind, too, that they hadn't done enough research and thought the hotel was on the beach road in Tulum. They ended up renting a car and spending the days at Ziggy's and Om for the beautiful sand and good swimming, they tried many of Tulum's restaurants and snorkeled in Akumal.  The pricing was so reasonable at Pavo that they had plenty of cash to spend on the car and food and drink elsewhere. I'll be interested in reading some reviews from forum members as they're posted.

That was essentially my point. Tankah = Tulum like Quayle = JFK.
If I remember right, Freedom Paradise was originally marketed for the super chubby set.

I'll probably be castigated for this:  check out the "owning" country for these resorts.  I had a terrible experience at an AMHSA resort in Sosua, DR.

This is an upgrade you can purchase, not something we need so not paying for it.  There is free wifi in the common area, something I don't really need either except to keep in touch with home
 
Kerry the grille meat part is probably like "steak"  night in a restaurant at any other resort.  I guess 'we'll get a report in October and another in April.

Ok Mona that makes sense.
 
It made me think of the buffets at the grand palladium, where you can choose what you want grilled fresh for lunch, dinner.  And if that was the case, then yes a person would be getting nickled and dimed at almost every meal.

I remember walking this property when it was closed after "freedom" was closed. Not in Tulum, like they are marketing it now!
