I spent a night at the Poc Na Hostel while I surveyed the area for an ideal hotel. Like, Tulum, I wanted to find someting close to the beach, with a nice view and hammock to accompany it, if possible. I settled for Playa La Media Luna which satisfied the prerequisites along with a pool as well. A bit pricey, but the hotel gave me a standard suite for half the going rate (usual rate $105) once they found out I wanted to stay at least a week, which made it difficult to resist.
Anyhow, like other beach destinations, I find it hard to opt for budget accommodations that I usually do for destinations in cities or in close proximity to the ruins -- if I'm going to opt for a nice piece of beach, the view, access, and a hammock are top prerequisites...otherwise, what's the point?
