Coqui Coqui was the hippest most gypset hotel in Tulum Mexico, and one of our top-five hotels ever.  It is so aesthetically beautiful and Gypset on its perfect white sand beach. Facing a crystalline Caribbean sea-front and an aroma of orange blossom.  It is simply tough to top.


Many years ago Argentinian model Nico Millville found himself on the no-longer-a-secret Boca Paila Tulum road  – and fell in love with the area.  Here he planted roots and opened Coqui Coqui Perfumeria as a small enterprise and a place to promote his beautiful fragrance line (of the same name).  Rumor has it, the inspiration for the fragrance line came to Nico from a book dated to colonial times.  Within  Franciscan monks had documented the formulas of the perfumes, made from local flowers, that were sent back to the Queen of Spain.

Soon after Nico began, he was joined by Francesca Bonato, an Italian accessory designer, and the Coqui Coqui world bloomed.  Their gypsetter design aesthetic found a wonderful place to grow in the hotels and and the chic products carried therein.


At check in, you are greeted with a gift bag containing the their  beautifully crafted amenities.  Including tobacco cologne, orange blossom bath oils, as well as our all-time favorite mosquito repellent  – that actually works and smells singularly wonderful.  (Hint: Even if you can’t make it to the hotel you can always buy via net-a-porter)

The Tulum hotel’s rooms, located in the back building, are large and comfortable. Each with with partial ocean view and amazing interiors.  Large windows continually bringing in a refreshing Caribbean breeze.  Thankfully there is no AC, or need for any.

We stayed twice in the Jungle suite – once during a major storm.  Despite our desire for sun,  the storm, along with a few mescal margaritas, created one of our most ambient and romantic afternoons.   On our last visit, we stayed at the new Mirador Suite,  located on the top floor, this used to be the Spa in our previous visits, and it also offered a lovely stay.

The local Mexican service is very good, especially Pepo and Mutsi (Hola!) The reservation process can be a bit bumpy; but persevere – it is worth it!

Why do we consider it the top hotel in Tulum mexico?
