You absolutely cannot beat the views, privacy, and beauty of this area. While La Vita E Bella isn't the fanciest of places, it gave us exactly what we wanted - a quiet and beautiful view of the sea. We were able to upgrade to the beach room, and while the view was truly breath taking, we did experience a few... More

I knew we had picked the right place when we walked into the lobby and the floor was sand! Same thing for the restaurant right on the beach! The beach here is powder white sand and wide. Other places in Tulum have varying beach with rock and coarse sand. The room was clean and charming. There is no A/C but... More

La Vita e Bella Tulum - located a bit far from where all the action is. Yet, it is worth it. We came on a day when all the area was packed and it had rooms for a reasonable price. The rooms are very simple and the ones we took had no TV nor air conditioning, but it wasn't needed... More

To summarize our stay earlier this month in one word-chill ! From the beautiful beachfront location, the boho cabanas and the amazing breakfasts to the unfailingly helpful and friendly staff (especially Ulises at the front desk), our stay here was virtual bliss. Sure, a picky client with a sense of entitlement can always find fault-sometimes spotty WiFi and water for... More

My friend and I recently just got back from a Mexican and Cuban holiday, and stayed at Le Vita e Bella while we were in Tulum. We stayed in bungalow #22 on the 2nd floor, one row back from the beach which had a balcony equipped with hammock and partial sea views which was nice. The only downside was that... More

We stayed at La Vita e Bella March 9-16 in a beach front bungalow. It was an absolutely great location steps from the water! The veranda was terrific and we enjoyed the view of the water and listening to the sound of the waves at night. The bungalow was "rustic" as many described and it sure did live up to... More

We stayed in this beautiful place for 5 nights. It was so idyllic and authentic. It doesn't get more real and relaxed than this. The staff is really friendly, the restaurant is great and it is litterally on the beach. Will 100% recommend this

We stayed at this beautiful place for 5 days in a second floor junior suite one row back from the beach. The place was nicely designed with the environment. Our room had a wonderful terrace with a beach view, chairs and a hammock. This place was our "splash" for this trip and it didn't disappoint. The sand floor restaurant was... More

If you like to be awokened every day before breakfast opens (and sometimes by a big truck pumping water right outside your un-insulated window) then you certainly have found the right hotel. I even wonder if they pay their staff since all they do is asking for tips. (Even at breakfast that is included in the price you will be... More

I wanted a room by the water in tulum I could not have made a better choice. The natural look of the place is understated yet amazing. A series of palapas in different sizes sitting in this dreamy beachfront hotel takes you to a different time where things were simple. Toss away your shoes and just enjoy the natural setting....
