Beach Luxury: Staying at Coco Tulum

It is the perfect Instagram accommodation.

Straw roofed beach huts, sitting on the edge of the ocean, with everything as crisply white as can be. Coco Tulum was one of those honeymoon accommodation options that just seemed to picture perfect to be true.

Photos of the hotel’s beachfront bar were what originally caught my attention on Instagram and from then I was hooked, this was definitely where I wanted to spend the Tulum portion of our honeymoon.

Checking into Coco Tulum

We arrived in the late afternoon and the staff at the front desk quickly checked us in and showed us to our room. They were so helpful, letting us know the best places to check out along the Tulum beach strip, and even booking a car for us that they organised to be dropped off at the hotel the next morning.

There are quite a few different room options at Coco Tulum. We booked a Superior Room with a Garden View with a private bathroom, however there are also cheaper options that include a shared bathroom if you’re on a budget. Or if you’re at the other end of the scale and are looking for something a little more luxurious you can book in to Suite 43, which is kind of like their honeymoon suite.

Our room was only a few steps away from the beachfront bar and the hotel’s restaurant which lead straight onto the Tulum beach. The beachfront bar often hosts local and international DJs and themed parties, especially on public holidays and special occasions.

It’s a good thing to keep in mind if you’re booking during any peak periods and would prefer a more peaceful place to stay. However, the parties usually wrap up around 9 or 10pm to ensure the peace of all guests.

Getting to Coco Tulum

Tulum is located on the Tulum Beach Strip,  just under one kilometre from Ziggy Beach.

If Tulum is your first location in Mexico it’s about a two hour drive from Cancun International Airport, past Playa del Carmen. It’s a good idea to book yourself a private transfer from the airport for the smoothest ride, to ensure you don’t get caught up dropping off people at other hotels around Cancun and Playa del Carmen.

Along the Tulum Beach Strip, Coco Tulum is within close walking distance of heaps of local boutiques, cute cafes, restaurants and beach clubs. Rent yourself a bike to get around and explore more of this beautiful little beach town.

Staying at an eco lodge for the first time

In the spirit of honesty though, it is a good idea to remember that Coco Tulum is an eco-lodge. While it is amazing for hotels to be consciously trying to minimise their impact on the environment, there are a few things to take note of if you haven’t staying in an eco-lodge before.

  • A lower power charge runs through the hotel, which means phones, cameras, laptops and chargers take significantly longer to charge.
  • In-room wifi is slower than normal and less consistent, especially during times when lots of people are trying to use wifi at the same time.
  • The shower water is often not hot enough or strong enough to feel like you’ve had a proper shower.
  • You’re definitely going to find some creepy crawlies inside your beach hut!
