“Beautiful place on the beach”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

This is a beautiful place to wake up. The HUGE drawback, there's no air-conditioning. They do offer you a fan but it was so noisy, it made sleeping a challenge.

They offer a nice breakfast of fresh fruits etc.. But it the exact same thing every morning. So nothing terribly exciting but it served it purpose.

The room are a nice size, clean and you can't beat the view! It's right on the beach so just steps to the water. And just a warning, they have "salt water" showers so you never feel quite clean. It was fine while we were there but on the day of our departure we went into town and bought huge water bottles to "bathe" just so we could feel clean on our flight home. Not a deal breaker...but it's worth knowing in advance.

We visited Tulum in mid-March. It was our third visit in three years. This was out first stay at Villa Las Estrellas. We discovered it last year for dining when we were renting a house nearby. It seemed like the perfect spot on the beach.

After a week there we can happily confirm that Las Estrellas is the ideal place for a stay in Tulum. It spills out on to the beach, and is surrounded on both sides by open space, which allows for maximum light in the rooms and restaurant, and makes the entire place airy and free of mosquitos.

We had a suite, which was extremely spacious, both inside and out, with a porch and lawn furnished with two hammocks, an outdoor bed and other furniture. The suite was well appointed in that rustic kind of way.

The staff at Las Estrellas is very friendly and accommodating. Don't expect people falling at your feet here. There's a laid back feel, but all of our needs were met with a genuine desire to provide hospitality.

While all the staff was very good, we have a special fondness for Paco. He's a waiter at the restaurant, and was there last year when we visited. It's often the people you meet that make vacations special and memorable, and Paco is one of those people.

I should add the restaurant is very good. We ate there very often. There are also good places very nearby.

We expect to return next March.

We spent a week here in March 2013. We'd stayed at other places over the past few years and eaten at Villa las Estrellas multiple times. The rooms here are comfortable, clean right on the beach. I loved our little balcony and spent every morning there watching the sunrise. The staff here are VERY nice and have been the same group of people for the past 3 years - The food is YUMMY and there's a nice selection of things to choose from. We will always return to Villa las Estrellas when we visit Tulum.

Room Tip: I like the 2nd floor rooms over looking the beach best.

We spent 10 days in room #5 and must say that the stay was quite wonderful. The service was superb from management to housekeeping to the restaurant. My wife has an addiction to lattes and I never thought I would find one up to her standards on the Tulum Beach, but La Estrellas served the best ones she has ever had. The room was a little smaller than I expected, but was fine for the two of us and a king size bed with a great balcony overlooking the ocean. I ordered through Loco Gringo http://www.locogringo.com and would recommend them with a 10!

I left my prescription glasses in the room and because of Homeland Security regulations, the hotel's owner, Simone, could not mail them to the US. Scott of Loco Gringo was down there at their office in Akumal, got my glasses, returned to the US with them and mailed them to me himself. Talk about service!!!!!

I was expecting/hoping laidback, but nice and charming small beach house type experience. We didn't get it.To be honest, on leaving after 3 days, we were pleased to be leaving our room we couldn't walk around in the morning because our footsteps awoke the downstairs neighbours and to also leave a hotel that seemed to confuse laidback with lazy and indifferent. The best bit is the location, which is at the start of the nice bit of Tulum beach; the further south you go, the nicer and less crowded it becomes. And the waiters who were generally very nice. However, these do not compensate the negatives, which include a room that never felt properly clean or laundered; a management team that were smiley but useless; a breakfast where asking for more coffee or some extra bread felt a huge intrusion (the tactic of delaying any fresh coffee or bread for 10 minutes wasn't going to work; I had all day, I was on holiday so wasn't going anywhere); and a general feeling that we were in a place that used to be good but then got complacent and started trying to cut corners to bolster profit margins by a couple of dollars. It felt mean.

I think you can tell I have no love for the place. Maybe you will enjoy it more than me, but we moved to another place (Be Tulum) which was nearly twice the price, but simply world's apart superior in every aspect and manages to be relaxed, charming and natural, yet highly professional, efficient and worth every penny.

Room Tip: We had room 3, a corner room on upper floor, supposedly one of the nicest. It was ok, but you couldn...
