We just happened upon this place and luckily they had a room. The rooms are comfortable and clean. We were literally steps from the Sea. I enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. We visited in December so there was no need for A/C but I would guess it would be difficult in the...

We stayed for four nights with our baby daughter (6 months). We were lucky to stay in cabin 10 which is right on the beach. We could see and hear the ocean from the room. The place is simple and pleasant with no attempt to seem posh or upscale. The staff is friendly, the restaurant is great fun and the...

My wife and I stayed here for the second time. It was the perfect spot to get away from the cold and stresses of home. You're right on the beach, with the ocean front bungalows located on the sand. The rooms are simple, but to us that was part of the charm. We came to get away from the fast...

First of all, if you stay here it is under the pretense that you want to be ON the water. The hotel is, and it is a nice hotel. If it is their beach you want to enjoy, you Will have to pay sit on it whether you stay here or not; and be prepared to fight outsiders for spots!...

My partner and I went for a long weekend and stayed in unit 1, on the beach. It was, as some have noted, an imperfect place, but we loved it and the proximity to a great beach (20'). The service was good and what I call earnest, tho not resort style polished. Will def return.

La Vita Bella sits northward, in a more quiet section of beach than southern counterparts - though other beaches, restaurants and yogi-centric shopping can be reached by bike (in 10-15 minutes) and cab (5-10 mins). It also a closer cab/bike-ride to the town center than from the southern stretch of beach. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous but not overdone. All...

No idea where to begin, but to be in a beautiful hut on the beach... which from what I could tell is the closest to the water of any of the 40+ hotels in Tulum... just heaven. The beach was super quiet compared to the busier southern beach. The staff at La Vita were incredible.. the room was fantastic, the...

I arrived at La Vita e Bella in a truly tired state (from my home country but also from explaining in the larger resort why I was a single traveller (f). Therefore, La Vita e Bella was both a retreat from the overwhelming inclusive resort as a introduction to Tulum. I love Bohemian settings and Tulum was on my 'to...

The room was very basic, the mattress was very uncomfortable and lumpy, the bathroom was extremely basic and the room was very dark. Even the hammock didn't work - how is that even possible? The hotel is fortunate enough to be situated on the most amazing beach and as a result they charge a fortune for a room. Instead of...

The main selling point of this accommodation is the fact that the cabanas are situated right on the beach. Waking up in the morning and being able to see/ hear the sea was really nice. Rooms were nice, if a little dark. Not overly spacious but with the beach 30 seconds away the rooms were only used for sleeping in....
