For day two we decided to explore further down the beach. Upon doing so we stumbled across Villa Las Estrellas which seems to be one of the more upmarket boutique resorts along the beach. A really love spot with a nice, quiet stretch of beach. As long as you eat and drink in their restaurant they're happy for you to use their facilities.
We set up on the beach and then grabbed breakfast. We ordered yogurt, fresh fruit & granola and scrambled eggs. All was very good and a nice way to start the day.
Not wanting to stray too far we also had lunch at the restaurant. We opted for their Chicken Quesadilla, Deep Fried Squid Rings and Chips. Not the healthiest of lunches but it was what we fancied. The quesadilla was homemade right down to the flour tortilla (makes a welcome change from corn tortillas). The Squid was nicely battered and crispy. It was served with a chipotle mayonnaise. The chips were pretty standard but did the job. The food was all made fresh and very tasty. They also make their own bread on site all of which was really good. Again, it made a pleasant change to have bread instead of nachos. As to be expected it's at the pricier end of Tulum for food but you're paying for the location and service.
The beach itself is small and pretty quiet with comfortable loungers. Their wi-fi is pretty good covering the restaurant and most of the beach. The staff too were very friendly. Definitely rate as a place to hangout for a day on the beach.
