What was the purpose of your trip to Tulum? Who were you with? When was it?
The purpose of heading to Tulum was to relax in paradise and to eat some delicious food = the ultimate vacation. I went with my boyfriend for a week towards the end of May. The weather was perfect.
What’s Jashita hotel’s vibe in 3 words?
Paradise, luxury, perfect.
What’s to steal in the room?
The bathrobes are pretty amazing – light, white linen robes that are perfect for lounging on the patio near our private plunge pool. Also the beach bags they provide in each room are really cute too.
A killer detail at the hotel?
All of the details in the Jashita Hotel are amazing and very well thought-out, it’s hard to pick just one. My favorite detail might have to be chocolates they leave in your room for you during turndown service. It’s a nice treat.
What’s for breakfast?
The Jashita Hotel has an amazing daily breakfast spread. Every morning we were served freshly baked pastries with jams, honey and butter; coffee or tea, fresh juices (my favorite was pineapple with chaya), fresh fruit platters and a selection of breakfast dishes. I love the huevos ranchero with tortillas and a side of habanero salsa.
Lunch or dinner?
For lunch, I loved the option of a pool-side or a sea-side lunch. The Jashita Hotel staff was attentive and service was excellent. We ordered fish tacos and fresh guacamole from the Jashita menu and washed it all down with cold coronas and pina coladas.
Dinner at the Jashita is delicious too. I love the seafood spaghetti. It’s also fun to head to the city for dinner too. There are so many restaurants in Tulum serving incredible food!
Your favourite drink at the bar?
Pina coladas of course!!
Any cool places in the neighborhood?
Yes!! There is a secret fish shack called Chamico’s that is about a twenty minute walk along the beach. There are no signs, but you’ll know you’re there when you see the plastic tables and chairs underneath the palm trees with a little shack in the background. Chamico’s serves the freshest daily catches and specialize in ceviche; succulent prawns grilled with garlic, fried or a la diabla; lobster and fish. Their michelada’s and ojo rojos are delicious too, and the view of paradise isn’t bad either.

Highs and lows
I loved swimming in the freshwater cenotes, they were insane. Snorkeling with the giant sea turtles in Akumal was also incredible. All of the food was so fresh, authentic and tasty. The only low was that I wish there were more hours in the day for me to lounge by the pool and on the beach at the Jashita Hotel.
