“Where i SHOULD be everyday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

Where do i even start? If i didnt have real world responsibilities i would have never left. The vibe at this place is immediately welcoming and Tom is as fun as he is helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms are really cool and clean, the atmosphere is on point, and the help is stellar. I was mainly on a relaxation and fishing mission here in Tulum and i accomplished both goals with flying colors. Frank, one of the owners was kind enough to give me some tips for fishing the local waters and i ended up with a nice barracuda in the Sien Khan. Nestled in the middle of Beach Rd in Tulum, I found the location of Las Palmas Maya to be close enough to Nightlife and far enough from any hustle and bustle that whatever my mood was i could be accomodated. Its an easy hitchhike or bike ride into town and a hop skip and a jump from the beach (aka across the one lane road) The people i met were amazing. One new found local friend i made even brought Tom and i a fresh lobster and snapper dish he had made, Delicious! I had an unforgettable experience here in Tulum and I feel its safe to say I will be frequenting Las Palmas Maya in the years to come and look forward to seeing Tom and the pups again.

We live in the Playa Del Carmen area for 3-4 months every year but we love to "get away" to Tulum for it's special atmosphere, beautiful beach and good restaurants. We had reservations at another hotel on the beach but their system (or people) goofed and they had us down for only one night and not the two that we requested. So we remembered that a new hotel had recently opened and might have some availability. Las Palmas Maya is not on the beach but it hardly matters with one of the nicest parts of the long Tulum stretch of sand just across the road. We know some people must be right on the beach and for those another choice should be made. But for the significant price differential Las Palmas Maya is close enough to the sand for us. The manager, Tom, could not be more welcoming and helpful. The rooms (only four) are comfortable with large king size beds and the very few recommendations we made are already in progress as we write this. One of the real pluses for those staying a few days or more is the community kitchen. It is fully stocked and allows guests to do a little home cooking and avoid having to eat every meal out in a pricey tourist environment. There is a new and large Chedraui market just a few miles away for all the items you could need. We found the restaurants within walking distance of Las Palmas to be very good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Highly recommended little gem of a hotel.

When we got to Tulum, we had no reservations and kinda went from Cabanas to hotels. We stayed at Las Palmas for 3 nights and it was great. There's a fully equiped common kitchen if you wanna cook or just chill with a cold beer, bikes are available, the rooms are nice and Tom, our host is real a cool guy and the owners were very nice people. It's not right on the beach, but who cares its a 1 minute walk ! No stress allowed there !!

You cannot find a nicer host in Tulum than Tom. The room was impeccably clean when we arrived, nice mosquito net over the bed, and the bathroom was recently remodeled. Tom was friendly and told us about local attractions and made us coffee in the morning. It was half the price of the rooms across the street at Om Tulum, and the rooms at Las Palmas were nicer and the lights are still on until late in the night, while at Om they are out at ten. We would recommend anyone to Las Palmas, its right across the street from the beach and has an outdoor kitchen so you can also make your own food if you'd like.
