My sister and I stayed at Las Palmas Maya in the beginning of January 2012. I was extremely happy with this choice from the start. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the place is nice - nothing flashy - just homey and nice, but the best thing about this place is the excellent service provided by Tom, the manager. It´s too bad you can only give 5 stars for service, because Tom is what really makes this place so special. He makes you feel as if you are a guest and not just a customer. He took care of our every need, helped us get groceries for breakfast and find batteries for my camera, recommended tours and dining options, and he even gave a great Coco-colada tutorial in the communal kitchen (the results of which tasted excellent). And always with a smile.
I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a no-frills laid-back vacation among the friendliest people you will ever meet. I certainly wouldn´t hesistate to book a room there next time I find my way to Tulum!
