“Honeymoon Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

When planning our honeymoon we did a lot of research into where we wanted to go and Tulum seemed to be THE place lots of our friends were recommending. We looked at various hotels and knowing how much we prefer a boutique style hotel JASHITA seemed to be the right choice. We certainly weren't disappointed and from the moment we arrived the whole vibe of the hotel felt relaxed and friendly. Tommaso the owner came and introduced himself straight away and was so helpful and even upgraded us for three nights to the honeymoon suite. We had a standard double room which was really lovely although it lacked some daylight due to it's location, but that didn't seem to matter as we spent so much time lying on the beach. The beach setting was just perfect and you could just spend the whole day watching the pelicans dive into the water to catch fish! The beach is on a coral reef bay and the hotel provide snorkelling gear, so it's well worth going out in the water as there are some amazing fish to see. The food in the hotel is also fantastic as well as the service and the breakfast was also delicious. The only thing to consider is that you are not in walking distance of any other good restaurants or shops and you would need to take a taxi or drive to Tulum or other hotels to get more options to eat. At first we thought this would be a little constraining and thought we should have chosen a hotel on Tulum beach, but after going there for the day we actually looked forward to coming back to the tranquillity and privacy of JASHITA. It takes about 15 minutes to get to Tulum beach and will cost you about £10 each way. If you do want to venture out a couple of places we would highly recommend to eat on Tulum beach are Posada Margherita and The Hartwood also check out the Playa Project, Hemmingway and Casa Jaguar.

We finally had the opportunity at Jashita (as they tend to be fully booked up at peak times), we stayed for 5 nights in January and wish we had many more.
We stayed in the Cleopatra Suite and received a surprise upgrade to their Honeymoon suite!
The suites had perfect views of both the Soliman Bay and the Mangrove type shrubs on the other side teeming with Ibis and the occasional Crocodile.
The suites were super chic, well decorated and the outdoor space in each suite was at least three to five times as large as in enclosed indoor space. Both suites had modern, sleek bathrooms and the upkeep was excellent, the Sky TV was a welcome plus.
We were welcomed with a tour by the owner and a bottle of Prosecco and chocolates.

The staff were EXCELLENT! The staff make this place special---Starting with the front desk personnel including the manager Roxie, Laura and Abi to the waitstaff (Martin, Luis Primitivo, Miguel Cruz, Miguel, Jorghe, I think another Luis and I know I missed one or two more)--they were always smiling, always checking up on us, the service on the beach was equally attentive and friendly--wonderful people!

The restaurant was such a great mix of Italian and Mexican food--the best pico de gallo I had in Mexico, fresh home made Gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce, fish tacos to die for, fresh fish with guajillo sauce, excellent eggs with Chaya in the morning, a nice wine selection, locally sourced Gelato just to mention a few--the food was really delicious and very reasonably & fairly priced e.g. about $10 or less for a starter and about $25 or less for a non steak Main course--which is the same or less than the places in Tulum of similar grade. Dont bother going to Tulum to eat unless you have eaten the menu twice!
The staff also gives guests plenty of suggestions for meals including the fish/ceviche shack at the other end of the bay to the many choices in the Tulum area.
Roxie also arranged for a very good massage by their vendor Leo and his team, they have a small spa/massage room which was a welcome break for my tired bones.
There is a road to the highway and another side road to the ceviche shack....one can easily to their jog/run in this space as the beach itself is quite uneven.
The sandy part of the beach area was small but more than adequate but again Maldives Chic, every guest had a beach bed, pleanty ot towels, quick beverage service with a smile.
They had snorkelling equipment in each room, Cressi Sub which is a good goggle maker! They also had several sea kayaks and paddle boards which were perfect for exercise in the extra large bathub called Soliman Bay
Snorkelling was quite good, LOTS of different species of fish--I saw a Barracuda, a sea centipide, lobsters, lots of Pelican hang around and are constantly fishing in the bay.
We even had an Iguana that lived above our room (they are generally herbivores) and she sunned herself on our rooftop.
You need to appreciate nature to truly enjoy this place.
We cannot wait to return and spend a whole week unwinding in this place.
Dont change anything, maybe add an exercise room for us city dwellers!

We spend six days at Jashita after much searching for a hotel that it would be not all inclusive and relatively tranquil. This selection fit the bill completely. A super comfortable hotel just yards away from the waterfront where you have breakfast right over the sandy beach watching the comings and goings of pelicans. The breakfast and a variety of entertaining niceties: snorkeling equipment, kayaking, etc, are free for guests. There are no nearby noisy neighbors, motorboats, or just nuisances. It is a perfect place to relax in their spacious rooms with excellent beds and personal hammocks and palapas. The staff is super friendly and well informed about the area and can provide service without pushing any excursion packages. Unless one wants just to spend a few days as pampered castaways the hotel is also a perfect location to enjoy the cultural sites of the Riviera Maya. For this we advice to rent a car at Cancun airport for the whole stay. It is only a 1.5 hr. drive and gives the freedom to take trips at your own timing and pace to the Maya ruins of Tulum, Coba and the charming colonial city of Valladolid which was a prosperous town (palaces, churches, plazas, etc,) before anybody landed in Jamestown. The roads to these places are excellent and secure. Just watch over the speed bumps (topes)at the entrance and exit of villages or the periodic police controls. They just slow you down a little.
The town of Tulum is much of a dump but has a few interesting spots and provide a flavor of local culture and some interesting restaurants as well as fantastic fine sandy beaches protected by a coral reef. One of the restaurants in town, Cetli, is the best we ever had in Mexico with Mexican upscale dishes. On the other hand, the Sahara restaurant at the hotel site is not very original and with tremendous Italian influence, which may suit those looking for familiar choice menus with a Mexican twist. The only draw back to this paradise on earth is the access road that personnel at the hotel was very defensive about and justified it by being built over a manglar and thus, the potholes. If repairs were well done and often enough, they would not have this problem. More serious is the parking area in the hotel; it is deplorable and lacks proper night lighting, thank God that it is near the security guard. Interestingly it has a security camera pole but not light(?). Aside this minor inconvenience which unfortunately your bones, and the car, feel every time ones ventures out of the hotel, this is the best hotel and vacation we have had in six different visits to both coasts of Mexico including Los Cabos region

Room Tip: request a room at beach level

We had a great time at Hotel Jashita! The room was always clean, the beach beautiful, the included breakfast and the waiters were top notch. It's not a loud touristy kind of place, but a tranquil, peaceful boutique hotel in a great setting. The only thing I would say is, if you rent a car, don't rent a convertible that is low to the ground! The driveway is very bumpy... and, if you're driving to Tulum (the part where the strip of hotels is... along the ocean), there are crazy big speed bumps!! They're call "Topes" and can do a number on a car. Drive extra slowly over them! Another thing I should add... Across the street is a really good restaurant, Oscar and Lalo. They have amazing private excursions with the best tour guides ever (and I'm not exaggerating)! Have a great trip!

Room Tip: We liked the cabaña on the first floor, so we could walk right out to the beach. It's literally...

Just got back from the most incredible 10 days at the Jashita - it was pure paradise, I couldn't fault it. We booked a waterfront Suite which had a huge balcony looking over the beautiful private beach. The hotel is immaculate, they have thought of everything with the attention to detail and fantastic staff that really made the trip that extra bit special. The beach has turquoise waters, kayaks, paddle boards and snorkelling equipment - so lots to keep you entertained. The food at the hotel was exceptional - my favourite being the spaghetti lobster and eggplant salad.

Thanks Tomasso and team for making the stay so memorable - we will be recommending you and will definitely be back.

Room Tip: we had a waterfront Suite - huge balcony, hammock and views out to sea. room 23.

We stayed at Jashita for our honeymoon and ended up extending our stay because we loved it so much. The staff is incredibly kind and helpful, and they made us feel at home from the moment we stepped foot on the property. The hotel itself is gorgeous and soothing, and Jashita's spot on the bay is perfectly calm and clean. And the food at the hotel restaurant, Sahara Cafe, was INCREDIBLE! My husband and I ended up eating every single meal there so that we could try all of their dishes! This is a must-visit, and we can't wait to visit again and again.

We just returned from our vacation at Jashita. We really enjoyed our experience. The room was lovely and the restaurant was delicious. The staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable; always ready to please. The beach is different than the ones in Tulum, not so sandy but what makes it great is the snorkeling. Everyday we saw something different, sea turtles, rays, octopus, beautiful fish and sea shells. The hotel provides goggles, snorkels and fins for everyone. They also have a few paddle boards and kayaks so there are things to do...I think people did spend their whole days at the beach but I would recommend renting car so you can visit the Mayan ruins and the things in Tulum...beaches, restaurants and shops. We used our car every day, driving was easy.
