Welcome to the Mezzanine


The Room

I was speechless when the concierge opened the door to our beach home at the Mezzanine. My eyes went straight for the gorgeous upstairs loft, which had a swinging chair + twinkle lights + the most adorable house plants. Hanging on the wall was a fully stocked beach bag, beach hat, and towels ready to go for beach adventures. After coming back to the room from frolicking on the beach that was steps away, we got to enjoy our luxury spa bathroom. I loved all the minimalist bohemian touches, with the wooden towel ladder and concrete walls + rain shower head. As Heading into the bedroom, the bed was massive, and incredibly comfortable. Falling asleep to the sound of the Caribbean waves kissing the shore is something I could get used to.

The Magic

It’s the little things that truly stick in my memory, and the staff at the Mezzanine really know how to make you feel safe and at home. Upon arrival, we were treated to the most delicious (and strong) margaritas.

As we checked in, we were asked what kind of essential oil we would like to have in the diffuser (this is the best turn down service ever), and we even got to choose what scent of soap we wanted to use in our room during our stay.

Each night, the staff would come to our room and turn on the diffuser and leave us a tray of hot tea, peanuts, and chocolates, which was an amazing scene to come home to after a long day of exploring. Every morning, a basket of coffee + granola was left on our doorstep for us to enjoy. This was some of the best coffee I had during my time in Tulum.

The location

The Mezzanine is located right on the ocean, making for magical views. Waking up to the sounds of the ocean reminded us that we were in paradise. We got to enjoy our breakfast on the beautiful wooden deck that spanned the property. Iguanas joined us as we sipped our coffee. Bohemian hammocks waited for us to lay down and enjoy the morning. Right next to the deck you can find the most beautiful rock pool that made a gorgeous centerpiece for the property.

The grub

The on-site restaurant at the Mezzanine has been named the best Thai food in Tulum, and I can see why! Their Pad Thai dish is to die for. They also make a delicious burger and chicken quesadilla. Johnny and I loved sitting on the wooden deck over looking the Caribbean ocean while we enjoyed happy hour, and breakfast each day.

They offer 2-for-one margaritas in the most amazing flavors. My personal favorite is the raspberry mint. Johnny loved their spicy margarita, but to me it was too smoky. Everyday we ordered their chips and guacamole which was covered in sesame seeds! I’ve never had it prepared this way, and now I cant have it any other way.

The logistics

One of Johnny and my’s favorite things is to ride bikes, and we loved that the Mezzanine had on-site bike rentals. One morning, we hopped on our bikes and made the quick 15 minute journey to the Tulum Ruins. It was incredible to be staying this close to such a historic place. {fun fact, there is a Starbucks right by the ruins, so if you are craving a taste of home, its only 15 minutes away}. The mezzanine is about a 15 minute bike ride {in the other direction} to get to tons of beautiful restaurants and beaches. Its safe to say the the Mezzanine is the perfect middle ground to get to all things worth visiting on the main Tulum strip.
