Love this hotel! They are located on a beautiful beach that is not very crowded. The restaurant is good and the view is incredible. They also have hammocks for a lot of the rooms, which we love! The staff is super helpful and friendly. One even recommended a newly opened Cenote SacAtun which was not crowded at all and extremely... More

What an amazing place!? We were a little reticent to try a non-traditional hotel (Italian owners), but they were incredible, and so respectful of their Mexican location, culture, and feel. Add to this, the most incredible Italian food options, and the crystal waters just meters from our door, and we couldn't be happier. Most of the patrons were multiple visitors... More

Great location but the bungalows would need a good makeover, the food was bellow average as well as the drinks. My cocktails were flooded in water and we didn't finish out homemade pizza (I'm not a cook but am sure I could make better pizza if I tried). Breakfasts were a disappointment too. Staff saved the day: very positive people,... More

It's a nice place. Nice beach, nice food. There are very friendly staff and others not so nice. But it have the hungriest mosquitoes I ever seen. After 17:30 it is mandatory to be in the bungalow, under the mosquito net in order to avoid been devoured.

My partner and I recently stayed a week at La Vita e Bella and cannot recommend it highly enough! We stayed in a palapa that looked directly onto the beach and the gorgeous sea beyond. We spent delightful hours in the hammock on our porch when we weren't in the 82 degree (farenheit) water. I snorkeled out to the reef... More

LOVED this place! My husband and I stayed in a thatched beach bungalow; we loved the privacy and calm/quiet atmosphere of this beachfront property. The staff was SUPER friendly and helpful. If you crave a TRULY RELAXING VACATION, [without amenities like television, computer access, and cell phone service] YOU NEED TO STAY at La Vita e Bella!!

Just Fantastic This place is a gem and deserves to be #1 A hidden secret in Como

Very relaxed atmosphere, you could go anywhere on the property and have sand under your feet and a mango margarita in your hands. The staff both Italian and Mexican were very helpful and accommodating.

The bungalows are nice and clean and the view is gorgeous (if you stay in the ones in front if the beach). Very little water comes out of the shower. It seems they haven't cleaned out the shower cap or replaced it. The water from the sink smells like sulfur. You have to throw the toilet paper in the bin,... More
