Bloomin’ lovely


Gardens, palapas and pools

Coco Hacienda Tulum sits like a giant jungle flower amid the green and gorgeous grounds of a former nursery, with a duo of pools, a brilliant restaurant and staff that shine. Rooms are a romantic interpretation of traditional Mexican style, with warm rose and blush hues, vintage furniture (and even a gramophone), spacious, hammock-toting terraces, plus flora and fauna galore. Days here unfold languidly, with tropical breakfasts in the restaurant, horchata ice-cream by the pool, candlelit feasts after dark and nightcaps on the terrace. If you’ve got time and the inclination to visit them, treasures of Mayan antiquity beckon on your doorstep…

Our favourite rooms

Opt for a Deluxe Garden Room with a Jacuzzi and enjoy the views from your private terrace while reclining lazily in your very own hammock. Styled with soothing neutral hues and elegant splashes of colour, these are the biggest of the hacienda’s rooms, so you’ve plenty of space to make yourself at home.

Food and Drink

Top Table

Thanks to the innovative chef, you’ll be happy wherever you sit. If you like the oceanic, blue-splodgy back wall, pull up a chair surveying it.

Dress Code

Tropical garden party. Botanical prints, splashes of emerald, luminous pearls, neutral linens and leather sandals will stand you in good stead.

Hotel restaurant

Ardea’s chef is a culinary whizz-kid and has the credentials to prove it, having been named one of Mexico’s top 10 chefs under the age of 30. His cuisine riffs on pre-Hispanic recipes and traditional Mayan dishes, throwing in some modern culinary fireworks and visual wow-factor for good measure. Try fried-chicken tortillas, guacamole, quesadillas and curd gorditas (stuffed corn tortillas); but be sure to always leave room for churros.

Hotel bar

Kick back and relax in Ardea’s bar area, which has a stellar wine list and welcomingly refreshing cocktails. Sip on frozen sangria starring icy berries, or try a gin, mint, lime and cucumber Don Fresco.

Last orders

Mealtimes are deliciously relaxed: breakfast is available until 3pm, lunch until 6pm and dinner until 10.30pm.

Av. Tulum Mz. 39 Lt. 1 Col. Centro

Coco Hacienda Tulum enjoys a peaceful perch on downtown’s main avenue, roughly half a mile from Tulum’s centre. You’ve got plenty of destination highlights within easy reach, but it’s a quiet and private spot.


If you’re coming from outside Mexico, you’ll probably touch down in Cancún, which can be reached directly from most European hubs and many across the US. The airport is a two-hour drive from the hotel.


The closest town to Coco Hacienda Tulum is Playa del Carmen, an hour away. There’s plenty of free on-site parking for guests.

Worth getting out of bed for

Coco Hacienda puts a duo of pools at your disposal, plus beauty treatments, natural wonders and the buzz and beauty of Tulum. It seems sensible to begin by having a massage in one of the hotel’s two treatment rooms, or in the privacy of your own bungalow.

Azulik Uh May is a multifaceted arts centre in the middle of the jungle, whose lures include an innovative art gallery that hosts artist residencies, a fashion and design lab, a hi-tech recording studio and a school for Mayan communities, with studios and craft workshops. Sticking with the creative theme, Tulum Art Club offers jungle art walks, runs self-directed artist residencies and organises eco-conscious activities, from private cave concerts to lagoon visits with plenty of primate-graced photo opps. Unleash your inner Indiana Jones and scale the Coba Ruins, one of the most impressive archaeological sites in Mexico’s Yucatán region. Coba is less-crowded than rival Mayan sites, such as Unesco-listed Chichen Itza: an ancient Mayan city that sprawls across a four-kilometre patch of wilderness. For a cooling midday dip, it’s hard to beat the milky-green Laguna de Kaa Luum; ask hotel staff to point you in the right direction.

Local restaurants

Begin the day with breakfast or brunch at DelCielo on Avenida Satellite. Expect delicious coffee, tropical fruits, faultless pancakes and plenty of doctor-approved dishes and drinks, including zingy kombucha. For perfect pastries, dulce de leche-laden cakes and coffees starring locally roasted beans, swing by Italdo Pasteleria bakery on Avenida 5 Sur. Savour flavour-packed dishes made with home-grown organic produce at green-fingered Verdant on La Veleta. As much as possible is sourced from the restaurant’s edible garden and showcased on its six-course seasonal menus. If you fancy dining in a devastatingly  romantic setting, head to handsome Humo Tulum for feasts of tacos, calamari, octopus and more, washed down with Caribbean cocktails.

Local bars

Dedicate a night to mezcal at Gitano Tulum on Beach Road, where you can sip signature cocktails in a candlelit jungle garden. The bar has more than 50 mezcals – all sourced from Oaxaca – to choose from. Make ours a Gypsy Disco (mezcal, rum, lime, basil and grenadine) or a Stardust: mezcal, dark rum, pineapple, papaya and house-made coconut cream.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this tropical hotel on the Costa Maya and unpacked their hand-woven hats and horchata recipes, a full account of their Mexican break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Coco Hacienda in Tulum

We’re not short on reasons to head to Coco Hacienda Tulum. Frozen sangrias are one; poolside horchata ice-cream is another. The fact that, due to the hotel’s past life as a nursery, the grounds are a serene, green vision of gardening glory makes up a third, and the pleasingly traditional Mexican design – rare for hipster Tulum – rounds us up to four. Maths aside, this tranquil tropical hideaway has a habit of getting under guests’ skin and nudging itself into their hearts. Consider it your Mexican secret garden with endearingly welcoming staff, a super-talented chef and all the romantic trimmings: from airy palapas and artful vintage curios to glittering pools and blissfully comfy beds. Rooms are a romantic medley of warm and neutral hues, winsome views, patterned fabrics, pretty lights and simple wooden furniture. Tulum’s beaches, lagoons, cenotes and Mayan ruins seal the deal. We’re coco-loco for Coco.
