Why We Love It It’s an intimate retreat with an attentive staff that guaranties fuss-free tranquility. Highlights: -The hotel provides flashlights to aid you on evening walks into town via the Beach Road. -An adjacent four-bedroom villa accommodates parties of up to eight. -The whitewashed living room offers a serene place to kick back and nurse your sunburn. With just 12 guest rooms and a staff that’s smaller than a football team, Nest is more private home than resort. Owned by former music industry executive James Chippendale, the intimate property features individually appointed interiors that are simple and subdued, outfitted with antique and artisan furnishings sourced from San Miguel de Allende
and throughout the Yucatán, as well as king-size beds topped with crisp white linens, locally made bath products, and handcrafted French doors that fling open to welcome warm ocean breezes. Start your day with a probiotic smoothie and huevos rancheros at the all-day beachside restaurant, then secure your spot on a palm-fringed daybed overlooking the powdery shoreline and azure waves. Your biggest decision may well be whether to watch the sun dip below the horizon from your plush perch or head back for complimentary happy hour at the bar.
