TRIED & TESTED: AZULIK MEXICO

April 27, 2011

Most striking feature:

This is a true honeymoon resort. You won’t find much on the resort except for a couple of villas. Made out of wood. A simple terrace. An outside tub made of wood. A stunning view over the ocean. And a relaxing loungebed/hammock on the terrace. It’s just you and your lover. And that’s how we like it!

From 180 euro per night. Check out: www.azulik.com

TRIED & TESTED: BE TULUM

November 18, 2010

Most striking feature:

Can we change that question in: ‘where do you want to go on a lovers trip?’ I’ve to admit that this is the most romantic spot I’ve seen during my trip to Mexico in March. Tulum consists of a strip of hotels – all directly on the beach. The more you drive to the south, the more beautiful the hotels (and the beach looks more unspoiled and the water even more clear). I didn’t stay at Be Tulum (I visited Mexico with two girls and this is more a place to go with your boyfriend), but we had dinner in their lovely restaurant. The service is superb – and the strawberry dessert we tried was delicious. The rooms were pretty, spacious and all included a plunge pool.

(I used the professional photos of Designhotels.com where you can book this hotel, the photo at the bottom is mine)

TRIED & TESTED: PLAYA AZUL TULUM

August 5, 2010

Most striking feature:

The rooms. They’re wonderful. That’s because of the tadelakt on the walls and floor and the huge drawing on the wall. You have a little terrace for yourself (including a hammock ofcourse). The bathroom is open. And that can be a problem (especially if you’re travelling with a photographer and stylist like I did) because you want some privacy if you really need to go to the toilet. But that’s a common thing in the Riviera Maya. One tiny bit of negativity: the restaurant is awful. You will wait hours for the food to come and then it’s raw or cold. So prepare yourself and go somewhere else.

From 85 euro a night. Check out: www.playaazultulum.com
