This is my 5th trip to LPM. It has seen massive renovations since inception and is more incredible every time i return.
Accomodations: Our room was very clean, every day. There is a safe for valuables to be secure although the housekeeping never touched any of the various valuables i left unattended. Hot water, comfy beds and clean sheets. No issues with bugs or critters, we were there in some pretty hott weather and were perfectly comfortable with the two fans in the room. I hear there is a room with AC if you needed to accomodate for an elderly person or someone who just is completely heat intolerant, although if that is the case maybe an alaska trip would be better suited for you. This is a tropical paradise, we dont come here and expect to be cold.
Grounds: Mainly using solar power, the hotel is much more eco friendly than many of the other generator run facilities. Making it more environmentally friendly by also recycling much of its water for irrigation. The grounds are are meticulously maintained daily and in beautiful condition. Hammocks adorn the courtyard for lazy days with a book and bikes are available for rent to get around the beach in style. Downtown is biking distance for the adventurous ones and will save you tons on cab rides. The communal kitchen is a great place to meet other guests and cook meals in a nice environment screened in.
Transportation: Cabs will get you anywhere, depending on your adventures and plans you may just want to rent a car in the long run and save yourself the hassle. You can also take colelctivos to farther destinations.
Management: Tom is the ultimate manager/ Concierge. He knows the area off the back of his hand. No matter what youre trying to do he knows where it is, how much it costs, or who can get it done for you. Weather it be a wedding planner, private snorkel tours, fishing tours, diving tours, dining. ANYTHING. He is happy to help and provides superior customer service anytime it is needed.
Safety/Security: Not once did i feel like my belongings or safety was in danger. The property is staffed 24/7 and nightime security guuards are at the entrance throughout the evening.
Beach access: The beach is a short walk across the street and is beautiful. Absolutely beaitiful water and plenty of cool beach bars to eat and drink at. You can even swim out to the reef and snorkel witout paying for a tour although i wouldnt do this on a rough day.
Vibe: Tulum has a very friendly vibe, many conscious souls are wandering and lots of fun people to make friends with. Food on the beach road is incredible and there are plenty of places to have fun.
This is truly my home away form home. If i didnt have responsibilities at home i would move here in an instant. I look forward to my trip next year and subsequent years to come.
Thanks LPM for another incredible stay!
