We stop here after visiting the ruins of Tulum. The service was really good and the pizza absolutely delicious. This is one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever been, and this place helped to make this visit even better

We were looking for a beach club, although not like I imagined and more like a restaurant, we were in shock about its beauty. The only negative thing about this place is the price, which was on par with a big city in the states. Still worth a visit!

Stopped in for breakfast before visiting the ruins at Tulum. Tables are outside in the sand, facing what is arguably some of the prettiest beaches in the world. Wanted something light so we ordered a continental style breakfast and a couple of extra croissants. The fruit was very fresh and tasty and the croissants were, well, lets just say that... More

This is a great Italian/Caribbean restaurant/hotel located right on the public end of Tulum. We didn't stay there, but we ate there three times over two weeks.

We came here twice for lunch on the beach. The portions are huge, so great for sharing. The food was pretty good. I had the shrimp tacos, which came with a huge pile of shrimp. The fish burrito is also good, and they have good salads. It's also of course great to sit right on the beach.

Restaurant has very nice space design, eating inside on sand is fun. Food is mediocre at best (lobster overcooked, 2 pasta dishes salty and too simple for their own good laden with cream), didn't have pizza. one grilled fish dish was good. Margaritas were aweful. We should have returned them instead of hoping with every sip that maybe they weren't... More

I stumbled upon this place and fell in love immediately. The beachfront is incredible. The restaurant has great food and good drinks. I didn't stay here, but plan to do so when I get back. The bungalows are a little primitive. Wood shutters, thatch roof with a tiled floor and tiled bath. Mosquito net. That's my kind of place! I... More
