Built from the ground up by a globetrotting Argentine/Belgian couple, this ten-condo hideaway represents a labor of love, from the spacious, artfully decorated condos to the shady pool area with its hammocks. Eco-minded guests will also appreciate such little touches as organic honey soap, fluffy bathrobes and free loaner bicycles, perfect for getting around this casual beach town. The units range from penthouse studios to two-bedroom condo apartments, and each is named for a famous artist. Expect light-filled white rooms decorated with vibrant throw cushions and colorful artworks; some condos come with perks like fully equipped kitchens and outdoor soaking tubs. While the town of Tulum isn’t a white-sand-palm-tree dream, like the more famous beach zone, its restaurant and nightlife scene is fun, and the more laid-back hotel zone is just a short drive or peddle away.
In the Area
Head for the tranquil Tulum beachfront, where the beautiful people congregate and it’s always either yoga time or happy hour. Dine at one of the town’s many hip but casual joints, like Casa Banana where they fire up the Argentine-style grill each night to serve delicious snacks like housemade chorizo and fresh-caught fish, all in the shade of trees hung with lanterns. Join the line for a table at Hartwood, a perpetually mobbed alfresco hot spot run by a former New York chef where the menu changes daily and the food is cooked over an open fire. La Vita e Bella offers a true sand-between-the-toes dining experience, and it offers guests of Villa Geminis a discount. Closer to home, Sale e Pepe, in Tulum town, is known for its pizzas and pastas and generally convivial vibe. Don’t miss a visit to the Mayan ruins, the remains of an ancient city, set fetchingly on a cliff overlooking a curve of azure sea.
How to Get There
I spent 4 nights here with my pre-teen daughter and it was perfect. Very family friendly. They helped out when she cut her finger. It was clean, quiet, safe, and served wonderful breakfasts. Parking was easy and it is a quick walk to the downtown. I will definitely stay again if I visit Tulum. This was in February 2018.
Beautiful boutique condos just a few steps from the town centre. Relaxed, exotic atmosphere. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Good breakfast. Decent pool. Taxi ride to the Tulum beach area varied from 10 minutes to an hour depending on traffic.
We loved this hotel. It was my favorite one during the whole holiday in Mexico. The place is calm, relaxing, children friendly, clean, well located. All people working there are super friendly! Specially Harumi from reception was wonderful! She was always helpful, sweet to us and our little girl and ready for a pleasant chat. Hope it wasnt our last stay in Tulum and this hotel
We lived in the Room «Degas» for a week and we were very happy about the choice. The room is located on the second floor and has a lovely secluded veranda with a huge bathtub where you can relax and watch the stars while taking a bath.
The room is spacious and delicate with aircondition and a kingsize bed wich is comfortable. A kitchen in the room also and a bathroom with shower. They cleaned our room every day and the staff is very helpful and nice in the reseption and in the breakfastarea. We had a lovely stay. Thank you to all the staff.
Thank you for a quaint, cute and functional hotel that takes us with our pup. Clean, and well done. Very nice! Nice pool, great rooms, close to town to walk or taxi around. We have a big dog and many places do not allow them, even if they are way cool. Thank you again!
