We were strolling along the gorgeous strip of public beach in Tulum and saw this place, which looked fun and busy, so we stopped. Great vibe, music playing, friendly service, delicious pizza...we had a lovely time sipping margaritas, enjoying the chips and fresh salsa that was offered to us, and devouring our Hawaiian pizza. Oh and people watching! I loved... More

I used love this spot. When u get the right waiter it can be a good time if you don't mind paying for super over-priced average food. The portions are very small and of poor quality. They have also started charging 30 pesos per lounger rental which isn't too bad if you get some decent service. Good luck! I recommend... More

This is one of my favourite places! I discovered them in 2011, when I stayed 3 days in one of their Ocean Cabanas. I visit this restaurant every time I am in Playa. It sits on the Tulum beach one of the most beautiful beaches in the area. Their pizzas, Italian-style, are delicious. And frankly, sitting at one of their... More

La Vita e Bella gets better every time I visit! This is the most beautiful stretch of beach in Tulum. This is where you want to go your first day, and stay all day. Find your beach chair and umbrella, order drinks, lunch, dinner and watch the sun go down. The food is wonderful, and being an Italian American, I... More

I personally think this restaurant is located on the most beautiful beach in the Yucatan. But since the last time I've come, they've upscaled a bit (only a bit, the floor is still sand) and added a whole bunch of palapas that obscure the view from the tables. The service is mediocre, but typical for the region and besides there... More

The service was really slow and it took a really long time til the waitress took our order. They were Non-flexible when we wanted to add whipped cream to the hot coco, it wasnt possible even though they had cream. The food was tasteless and had a really special after taste. The location was really good though. / Lina

This is a beautiful spot to eat lunch and soak up beach vibes. However, the service wasn't great. We were seated before two other 4-top tables. We ordered drinks, then our food, pretty typical at this point. Then after about 25 minutes the tables (both 4 tops) were served lunch. We still had not received our 1st course. Politely, we...

Our hotel in Playa recommended La Vita e Bella for a Tulum beach visit and we LOVED it! Such a peaceful oasis! Benjamin was patient with us as we selected 2 lounge chairs and a thatched umbrella. He recommended the 5 bucket of beer and we were thrilled. It was such a lovely experience, we went back the next day.... More
