tulum resort beach luxury

Resorts are really great options to spend your stay in Mexico, and in this case, Tulum has really plenty of great resorts, both on the beach and in town. But when it comes to luxury resorts, what makes a resort different from another?

Well, for example the presence of a huge swimming pool in the jungle, private casa scattered along the property, high end suites with every service, accommodation with stunning views, a great bar and restaurant, and the list can go on.

We visited many of them and now we decided to make a top 10 of our favorite resorts in Tulum. We discovered them thanks to our dear friend Virginia – she will be able to book the best villas and resorts in Tulum for you *for free*, not to talk about the crazy parties! Take advantage of her free service down below.

Hotels vs Resorts: which one is the best?

Hotels: great rooms, but less service

We wrote many articles about hotels and the best places to stay in Tulum. I would say that if you are searching for less comfort and more improvisation, hotels are great. And even regarding comfort, the suites they offer can be pretty high end, with air conditioned and all the features you can want. But in a hotel a stay is simply thought differently: in fact, while in a resort you can even forget about going out, in a hotel that’s not the case. If you stay in a hotel in Tulum you will probably miss many outdoor activities resorts organize, like yoga, meditation and so on; you will for sure have less features than in a resort and you will have to organize more the vacation all in all. In any case, if you want to check out our favorite hotels in Tulum you can find our article here.  

Resorts: all the top features thought to please guests

Everything in a resort is thought to please guests and satisfy their needs. The availability of the staff is great and the offers are many. If you are traveling with your family, choosing to stay in a resort can be smart for the amount of activities a resort offers for kids and for the whole family to create unforgettable memories. Resorts which are adults only will for sure offer you more quiet and relaxation during the day, while at night you will be free to enjoy incredible parties at the resort’s bar and restaurant. Let’s find out below our top 10 luxury resorts in Tulum!
