BE TULUM HOTEL – MEXICO
December 19, 2012 §
For our trip to the Riviera Maya we decided to start off staying at the furthest point available in Tulum on the map and work our way back to Cancun.
So our first stop was the BE TULUM hotel, located literally at the end the main off the beach road!
Getting there wasn’t the easiest as we were exhausted from the flight from london, and Tulum is a 1:30hr drive from the Airport.
But once we got our bearings we arrived safely in this little heaven.
Waking up was wonderful, having arrived by night and not knowing really what to expect, we were blown away by their stunning beach backdrop at breakfast.
The whole hotel has a very chilled out vibe to it. The rooms are garden bungalows with a private pool and deck, where your left to feel as if your in the middle of a jungle. A couple of meters up a small hill theres the restaurant and dining area, and pool and bar. All of which give on to the famous beautiful white sandy beach. It’s the highlight of the hotel, with its soft giant sunbeds, one really can spread out relax and enjoy the warm sunshine! We absolutely loved hanging out there! The other highlight of the hotel was the delicious food, from breakfast to dinner the quality of our meals were sublime and super fresh. As you can see a couple of posts down our favorite plate was the Tuna Tartars, but as I said most of the food was absolutely mouthwatering. Also they have a wide array of fresh juices that will ensure to keep you quenched during the hottest hours of the day (our personal favorite, was the carrot, celery, pineapple and apple one!)
Everything about this hotel was great, and we will definitely keep it in our MUST GO BACK list.
NO :( The only minor details that let us down were: The lights in the room (especially mine) were super low, even in the bathroom which can be annoying for those who like reading. We found the sheets to feel a bit too synthetic (not sure if it was a result of the washing powder). The shrubs surrounding each villa/bungalow should be slightly more thick to allow total privacy, in the evening I did feel like anyone walkin by my room could probably see inside.
