We stayed over the holidays at Tankah Inn. After visiting with my husband six years ago, this time we took the kids. We had two rooms, Coba and Tulum. It was wonderful to have the open door and separate space. For our last two nights we did have to share one room, but they were wonderful and added a real bed to our room and there was more than enough space for five. There is a mini-fridge in the room and the local store is a quick drive south to Tulum. Also great for leftovers if you visit Blue Sky for some pizza!
The beach in the back is amazing. There are rocks that extend a bit out (iron shore) so we did wear water shoes to avoid slips. But it is an amazing snorkeling spot as well! Once you're out about 75 yards you can see so many fish and the kids found numerous conch shells, starfish and sea urchins. The best part of the "backyard" is the palapa with hammocks! They are in the shade and super comfortable. There are also kayaks to take out to see more of the bay.
Breakfast..... Not much to say other than Wonderful!!! As with our first stay, the food was amazing and varied. My favorite addition was the Maya breakfast...our 11 year old loved it. For those who aren't adventurous, they offer delicious French Toast and Pancakes, along with fresh fruit and tasty fruit juices.
Everyone associated with Tankah Inn is fabulous: Bill for reservations and squeezing us in, Willie for the amazing property (and advice!), Loida and Pedro for everything in our rooms and Pancho for the amazing breakfasts - we had our meals planned the night before! I'm sure there are others who served us with no recognition, but thanks to everyone there!
