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

This is an underrated Tulum beachfront restaurant IMO, perhaps not as well known as others because it is in the north beach area. Superior food, lovely toes in the sand beach-front ambiance, good service, and yes, you pay more than you would pay for good Italian in the pueblo, but definitely worth it for the beautiful, quiet and romantic setting....

Great spot, really all round good cuisine. The risotto is a real pleasure, the pizzas are worthwhile as well. Its a tad expensive for the region but the quality of the food makes it a good deal. The view at sunset is fantastic

Yes, the view is gorgeous. It's pretty laid back, with the sand floor and beach decor. However, when we realized that driving into town would save us about $40 USD, we decided never again! We had a breakfast there one morning. We shared a burrito and each had 2 coffees with Kahula. Our bill was $60! We were stunned and... More

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.
