Historical Traveler Reviews Posada Margherita Tulum
Perfect place to stay
Of all the places that one could choose along the Yucatan coast, Posada Margherita is the best. My boyfriend and I have visited there twice now and will always return there. The location is ideal - off the beaten path and far from the raucous Cancun scene. The rooms are simple yet welcoming, and they are always clean. The food in the restaurant is amazing, and the cappuccinos are the best on the planet.
My favorite thing about Posada Margherita is its location. It is right on the beach - right out the front door. The beach in this area is more isolated yet well-kept. You will surely enjoy long walks along this beatiful beach.
I almost did not want to write this review - to keep this as our secret to be sure that there was a room for our next visit. However, it is too good of a secret and the staff is so genuine that I want others to enjoy it as much as we have.
Valentine Romance - non better
Alejandro sat with us. He is focused on excellence and it shows on his small property and wonderful restaurant. Everything was clean, the music soft and just right. His smile and jovial personality where wonderful.
We weren't sure what it would cost, ended up being 825 pesos. Worth every cent. I had the seafood sampler, Mary had the basil, garlic, and tomato pasta. All homemade.
No written menu's all by word of mouth. Alex turned away at least ten drop by's. We had a three day wait. So glad we got our res the day we arrived.
A must for all those who love good food or are in love.
LOVED Posada Margherita
I did not stay at Posada Margherita, I did however have the most amazing meal. Many of the reviews comment on the impeccable service in the restaurant and make note of being treated like you are part of the family and that is absolutely true. It is by far the most welcome I have ever felt in a restaurant. I had the opportunity to see a couple of rooms at the hotel and they are gorgeous. The walls are filled with well chosen beautiful art by local artist Enrique Diaz. The hotel is owned by the most gracious italian and the warmth and beauty is a reflection of his spirit, in fact he may just be the person who sits with you and tells you what in on the menu, he did that for me and I could not have been happier.
I am in love with Tulum and Posada Margherita and I recommend the experience to everyone.
Posada Margherita: Perfect Vacation
My girlfriend and I stayed at Posada for about 5 nights. It was truly the best vacation i've ever had. The villas were extremely clean and well maintained (we stayed in #4).
Alejandro and the rest of the staff were extremely helpful, gracious and accomodating. Anything that we needed was taken care of quickly and eagerly.
The beach is amazing. It's obvious that they spend a lot of time maitaining the grounds including the beach. The scenery is remakable and isolated. Very few other visitors on the beach.
I've read several reviews that while the food was delicious, it was a bit pricey. While not the cheapes spot in Tulum, it is amongst the best. You get what you pay for.
Finest restaurant in Tulum, yet just as relaxing and laid back as the others!
We dined at Posada Margherita one evening, not knowing what to expect. It has a beautiful open air setting lighted by large candles. The staff is extremely friendly. They do not have menus, but you will probably be safe with anything on the list! Any of the fish dishes will most likely be some of the best fish that you have ever tasted. Also, be expecting an excellent appetizer platter, ours consisted of cheese, olives, pistachios & different types of bread. This is a very romantic spot for couples and honeymooners. Enjoy!
Best place to stay and eat in tulum
I'm italian and i've been living in ny for five years. I spent five days in Posada Margherita a corner of italy in the carribean sea.The hotel has a touch of the great italian style and the owners take care of you like part of their family.The restaurant it's not cheap but if you consider the level of the included appetizer(hand made focaccia bread, cheese,bruschette and olives), the great handmade pasta with shrimp i had and the search for details (beautiful coloured candles all around) it's the best place to have dinner in Tulum. There are some other restaurants around but nothing like the great experience you can have here.Try it you'll be delighted.
Best dinner in Tulum!
We didn't stay at Posada Margherita, but we did have dinner there, and while it was by far the most expensive restaurant we ate at in Tulum, it was also by far the best - simply amazing. The "waiter" if you can call him that, came out dressed in shorts and a Posada Margherita tshirt (easing our fears that we were underdressed), and immediately sat down at our table, treating us more like old friends than like customers. There were no printed menus - he recited everything from memory and answered questions easily, but the list was short enough that we wren't uncomfortable deciding on the spot. An included appetizer of a variety of breads, cheeses, olives and nuts was incredible, the cocktails were fabulous, and dinner was, bar none, the best I'd had in a long time. The pasta had obviously been made fresh that day, the seasoning was perfect, and the wine he suggested to go with it just right (again, no printed wine list, just him). Dessert was also amazing, although it wasn't until after he brought it out that we were able to decipher what he was saying! We heard "Sherry Gem Tart", it was actually Strawberry Jam Tart. The setting was also beautiful, outside but covered, ocean view with a great breeze, and no bugs (which is a rarity in Tulum's outdoor restaurants). All the while, the waiter made us feel like we were visitors in his own home - just incredible. And the price for all this was around $80 - maybe expensive by Tulum standards, but for the quality and the service, far better than what I'd get here in DC for the same price.
Go. You won't regret it.
Beautiful place but overpriced food
We stayed at Pasada Margherita for two nights in April. The room was very nice and clean, the beach was great as well, though the food was totally overpriced. $18 for a pasta entree and $6 for a glass of wine--those are Manhattan prices!! Having a great meal in Tulum is 1/3 of the price.
We stayed at the Posada in November, the beach is amazing out front of the hotel. The food in the restaurant was excellent, especially the breakfasts. the rooms were clean and the owners were very friendly and accomodating. I only wish the rooms had some sort of air conditioning, but thats a minor criticism of an otherwise excellent place to stay.
We stayed our second week at this place and I think it is not possible to find a better one within 50 miles (---). It is not cheap but you get a perfect hideaway you share with only arround 15 other guests (six rooms). It is run by friendly italian people and they really know how to run a hotel. It is of course located direct on the beautifull beach (taxi costs 4 USD to Tulum = 8 minutes). In the evening you can enjoy a sea view candel light dinner (pasta or grilled fish with selected wine). Nearby are several beach restaurants in walking distance (5- 20 minutes).
When you there have a trip to Sian Kaan or try snorkling in a sweet water cenote. You will love it.

... snorkeling and after about 40 minutes Leandro was a bit worried about Dani because he couldn't see him anymore. A few minutes later Dani returned and Leandro was reliefed! He told us that he saw a bunch of cool fish such as a kind of unicorn fish and a little sunfish - sure we didn't want to believe him!;-) The point was that just today we didn't bring our mask and snorkel because last time our snorkel adventure at Santa Fe it was ...
... we were around the rocky cliff and next to the Tulum ruins beach. We snuck behind a conveniently placed bolder on the shore and gave it some time to make sure we were safe. We emerged onto the beach past two girls smoking weed and into the main area. We blended perfectly into the crowd of tourists who had paid their 60 pesos to be there. It made the ruins so much more awesome and left us feeling invincible. The ruins themselves were small but cool. The Mayans sure had an eye ...
Little text here as the photos say it all: an amazing day with some incredible vistas.
Headed to the amazing ruins of Tulum today - photos coming shortly. In short - beach, endless blue Atlantic Ocean, ancient ruins, and loads of lizards!
Looking forward to a great day tomorrow snorkelling with sea turtles in ...
Sorted bus ticket to chetumal and boat to caye caulker. Hired snorkel gear from dive shop and Annelina and I took collectivo to Akumal, had to walk around 1km with gear. Got chatting to Canadian family who said they'd watch our stuff. Taught Annelina how to snorkel as she'd not done it before. Was so cool, saw loads if turtles and 3 huge ones - never seen ones that big before. Just watched them eating on the ground and they'd swim right underneath you. One had 2 sucker ...
... glad Andre insisted on bringing our own masks and
Monday, we took a collectivo bus 30 km (no more biking) up to Akumal for more snorkeling. We saw big sea turtles and the reef, while not colorful, was loaded with cool fish. Then we headed back to Tulum to see the Mayan Ruins and swim at their beach. Lovely spot and the only example of Mayan architecture ...
