This photogenic beach club is one of the first things that pops up on Google when you search Tulum. These famous pool hands were something I made sure we saw during our trip.
We booked a pool day here for Saturday afternoon, and fortunately, the club wasn’t terribly crowded or rowdy when we were there. This was both a pro and a con, but we were a touch hungover from the night before, so it was nice to not have blaring music and tons of people around. I have seen photos and videos on their Instagram when the place gets lit for certain DJs or events.
Instead of craziness, we had ourselves a nice, secluded spot and could get as wild as we wanted without feeling forced. Luckily, we got a covered cabana spot. Our reservations were from 1 - 6 pm, and had we not had a cover, I feel like we would have all been sunburned.
There was also a $150 per person minimum which was not expressed to me when we made the reservation. It was a little hard for us to actually hit that minimum with nine people, but we purchased cocktails, a bottle of champagne, two bottles of Titos, and some food and only went over the tab by $100 total (not including tip)!
The quesadillas were AMAZING. We talked about how good the sauce in them was literally all weekend. Probably one of the better, unexpected places we ate in all of Tulum.
This place is awesome! I will say it was a bit different than we expected at night. We thought it was going to be a club, but instead, we were seated at a table just like any other restaurant.
The music, though, was fantastic, and there was a live violinist who would play along to the hip-hop music getting everyone up and into their chairs dancing and singing along. It was so much fun especially when they gave us all sparklers!
I wish we would have also made a daytime reservation here, because this beach club gets WILD based on their social media! They have saxophone players and bottle girls with sparklers lining the pools. If the day club is anything like it is at night, this place is crazy no matter when you go!

For a more traditional club vibe, we found Confessions. This sandy floored club was just what we were looking for – a good house DJ with lots and lots of dancing. We were advised to come here by our bartender at Taboo, and we were very happy to have found it. We stayed here till closing time at 3 am and had an absolute blast.
This is one party place we did not make, but it was on my list and recommended by one of the girls on my trip who had been. It is on the north end of the beach, so it would have required a taxi ride for us to get too. They have lots of concerts and DJs here nearly every night of the week.

Even though it was a super quick weekend, we packed a whole lot in and got an amazing feel for the clubs and bars there. We truly had ourselves a time at my bachelorette party. Read more about Tulum in my “Full Guide to Tulum”, here, or in my itinerary post here!
