Situated in the one of the best spots of Tulum, hotel Mi Amor is one of a kind and rated as one of the best hotels in Tulum! This four star boutique hotel blew me away, let me tell you why…
First of all, you can’t beat the location. Mi Amor is located near the archeological site of Tulum. The world famous ruins right at the Caribbean sea are spectacular and a must visit when you are in the Tulum area! Do note that you can rent bikes at the hotel which is the ideal transportation you could use in this area. For only 12 USD you can rent your own bike and explore the gorgeous area. You can also walk to the ruins in about 35 minutes. It is a nice walk as you can walk on the beach to the sites with no problems. Do note that the vibrant restaurants, bars and shops are not in the direct area of Mi Amor. To get to the action, you will need to walk around 20 minutes on the road or take your bike.
The luxurious boutique hotel Mi Amor has been built in 2015 and only has 18 rooms. This actually is the main advantage of Mi Amor. The fact that they ‘only’ have 18 rooms gives them the opportunity to treat each guest as a king or queen and they surely did. Each time you leave or enter the hotel, a friendly front desk member will make you feel at home again offering a great smile and a nice hello.
What I also appreciate about this hotel, is the fact that they combine modern and designer furniture with some traditional elements throughout the hotel. I read somewhere that hotel Mi Amor is a perfect ‘Instagram hotel’ and I can easily see why… I appreciated the elegant combination of modern/old and the artful play of colors and luxury fabrics. I could take pictures all day long!
Hotel Mi Amor has a small lobby area where I was welcomed with a biiiiig smile! Loved it! Everything in the hotel is immaculately clean and decorated with style and charm. This is totally different than a big chain hotel, every room at hotel Mi Amor is different and unique.
The hotel offers stunning views over the Caribbean sea. The romantic beach front location does seem like a dream! This is what paradise looks like! Instead of the large hotels in Cancun, Mi Amor is a hidden gem with the most tranquil atmosphere one could wish for. Of course, the hotel has an outdoor infinity pool overlooking the Caribbean sea. The very comfortable (shaded) sunbeds on the rocky coast are the perfect spots to read a book or listen to some music while enjoying and admiring the views. We spent hours here and loved every second. I could spend my time here all day long, but listening to music and admiring the surrounding areas. Again, there’s also a pool with a view over the Caribbean sea. Although the water was pretty cold, I enjoyed the pool for a short swim.
The room we stayed in had a great view over the Caribbean sea and pool. The king sized bed was comfortable but I missed a place to actually sit and relax in the room as well as a desk. It would have been nice to do some work. What I loved about the room was the outdoor space and balcony. It was great to relax and enjoy the gorgeous views over the Caribbean sea.
Colibri Spa at Mi Amor is one of the highlights at the hotel. I can’t imagine a better place to relax. The location is just mind blowing. What a gorgeous retreat! I totally enjoyed a treatment that incorporates the body and face. The therapist was a true professional! She first showed me around the spa facilities. I was pleasantly surprised by the size and facilities. For the small size of the hotel, I was happy to find out they have two treatment rooms. The place is just beautiful and peacefully decorated. This is the perfect place to unwind. She explained what she was going to do and I do appreciate that as some people just start a treatment without any explanation. The 60 minutes that followed were true relaxing. The pressure was perfect as requested. Highly recommend to book a treatment here! You won’t be disappointed at all!
Breakfast at Mi Amor was good, although not all items on the breakfast menu were available at the time we were there, we did order the bircher muesli with orange juice, Greek yoghurt, dried fruits and seeds. It tasted pretty good. Prices were pretty expensive for Mexican standards.
There are several dining options at Mi Amor. At night, they serve several à la carte options for you to enjoy. Leaded by Chef Paul Bentley, the cuisine is both French and Italian. Since we didn’t have dinner here, I can not recommend on the food, but I suppose the food and service would be great.
Also, since this hotel is part of the Colibri hotel collection, I do recommend to enjoy a cocktails in one of their other nearby resorts. We did visit La Zebra – another high class boutique hotel – which is only a 15’ bike ride away. Always nice to explore another hotel too when you have the chance to.
Our stay at Mi Amor is unforgettable! With only 18 rooms, they are able to provide a very personal approach and service. Every staff member I met was very friendly and accommodating. Nothing is asked for too much. That makes Mi Amor so unique and unforgettable. The staff members at Mi Amor are incredible. Can’t say enough good things about the staff. Every time I met someone, I was greeted with a smile, they all seem to be happy working here which is noticeable and very appreciated as a hotel guest. Highly recommended for a comfortable getaway to the beautiful Riviera Maya in Mexico!
