My fiance and I stayed at La Vita e Bella in Cabaña 4 for 4 nights. I will get to the description of the rooms and grounds but first I want to describe how wonderful the staff is. They really made us feel welcome and cared for. Fernando was our bartender and he added so much to our trip. In... More

I have been conflicted to write this review, but after reading DWin review, I can write this with a clear conscience, because the same thing happened to me in regards to the reservation. We stayed at La Vita e Bella last year, and I wrote a glowing review because this place was just perfect for what we like on vacation... More

La Vita e Bella is a great little mom and pop type accommodation, well situated about half a mile down the beach from the Tulum ruins. It's on a quiet little beach and the place itself is mellow. As mentioned, the accommodations aren't the Ritz. But if you just want a bungalow with a hammock, on a white sand beach,... More

My wife and I spent 5 nights at this hotel between May 25 and May 30, 2015. We stayed in a beach front bungalow (#10) for about $200/night. We trusted the reviews on Trip Advisor when selecting this hotel. I don't believe many of the reviews are authentic because they seem to be talking about a different place. This hotel... More

The idea to stay here came from a very good friend who put together an 8 day adventure for 6 couples. We stayed here the first 3 days and balanced out in Cancun at an all inclusive. I have to say that I'd have enjoyed a few more days at this place. The staff, including restaurant employees and grounds security,... More

Our thatched roof cabana was perfect! Very private and quiet on the most beautiful stretch of beach. Watch the sunrise on an early morning stroll of the beach or right from your bed! Service was great at the restaurant-Jorge was very charismatic! Dorca was a wonderful housekeeper and Ulises was most helpful at the reception desk with reservations and an... More

Griselda was a marvelous housekeeper. She was pleasant and lovely to speak with each day. Her towel animal skills are top notch. The location is perfectly located near town and the Tulum Ruins and easy access to the highway to Coba and Playa del Carmen. Wonderful beach too. The "Mexicano" breakfast is great. It screams paradise from the moment you... More

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
