Chiringuito Tulum, Mexico
We spent 3 days at Chiringuito Tulum at the end of a whirlwind trip to Mexico to escape London for some winter sun. I knew I was desperate to stay beach front and to enjoy great food, but I also wanted to take advantage of a private pool - something we rarely ever do on holidays but that I lust over when trawling booking.com. We had spent the first half of our trip over indulging in a resort further up the coast, but ending our trip at Chiringuito was perfect.
In an amalgamation of the stylistic whitewash stone villas of Greece and the wooden shades and monochromatic natives of Tulum, Chiringuito is a boutique hotel with only 13 rooms, half of which are two story offering rooftop terraces with blue and white woven lounges and private pools. We opted for the pool villa (obvs). It was really nice to spend the days moving casually from the white soft sandy beach to our terrace, and watching the sun set over the Mayan jungle in the evening.
The restaurant encompasses the same med-inspired menu with fresh and healthy Tulum style breakfasts alongside grilled seafood, ceviches and paellas in the evening.
Located on the south end of Tulum beach, Chiringuito is right beside hotels Sanara, Be Tulum, Nomade and Casa Malca which made for an easy sneak peak at the luxury neighbours. On the jungle side, the hotel is an easy walk to all of Tulum's favourite restaurant and bars; Raw Love, Hartwood, the Real Coconut, Matcha Mama, Casa Jaguar and Gitano.
