This was our third trip back to Casa de Las Palmas in January 2017. Guy was traveling overseas, but Chabely was a wonderful and kind host. Tulum had not changed since the prior year, and was as friendly and quaint, as ever. The property has added a fourth house, but with no negative effect on the general view of the ocean, or privacy, as far as I could tell. I look forward to visiting again in 2018.
We were lucky to be able to stay a week in this house after an already idyllic week in another property on this "compound" Casa Mandala. Poor choice of words really - each property is private and distinctive. See that review for my view on what a fantastic spot this is.
Each property is wonderful, each has its own benefits. The pool at Casa Mandala was a great addition and the even closer proximity to the beach from Casa De Las Palmas was a lovely way to wake up in the morning (although the 20 yard walk to the beach down its own little sandy path from Casa Mandala was hardly a burden)
Which one did I prefer? Not sure - both were incredible. Would I stay again? In a heartbeat
WOW! We rented 4 villas owned by Guy and everything about each house exceeded our expectations. Casa de las Palmas was located in the center of the property and had a clear beachfront view. The rooftop was spacious enough for all your guests to come hangout, view the waves, or star gaze at night. The rooms were spacious and clean and have their own balconies. Lounge chairs, beach floats, and an umbrella were available each day. I highly recommend booking several of the houses on the property if you are traveling with a large group or plan to have your wedding in Tulum. Everyone was able to bounce between the houses and hang out together each night. We hosted our welcome party there between the 4 homes on the property and it was gorgeous and an easy walk to bed after all of the festivities. My husband and I stayed after our wedding party left for a few additional nights. Other families checked into the other homes and it was still so private and we felt like we had the area to ourselves. It was truly a magical time in Tulum. If you are looking for good food, many of the wonderful restaurants are walking distance from the house. Gitano & Casa Jaguar are also close by if you want an evening cocktail. La Zebra is right next door and has food (including breakfast), drinks, and entertainment at night! Guy, the owner, was AMAZING! He was there to greet us at check in and checked on us each day. He has great recommendations of places for margaritas, lunch, and romantic dinners. I cannot say enough wonderful things about these properties to do them justice. PERFECTION!!!
Beautiful house, rustic yet modern in the best way. Perfectly clean and well appointed for our needs. We loved the location on the beach, but set back just a bit to remain secluded. The house is just a few steps from Sanará and La Zebra, both with delicious food and drinks. We could have cooked but it was so convenient to walk down the beach. Our host, Guy, is charming and full of valuable local information. We'll be back!
We rented all of Guy's villas for our wedding in Tulum and it was the best decision ever! It allowed all of our guests to be together for the entire weekend and gave us access to the best stretch of beach and the best restaurants in Tulum. The villas are perfectly located and Guy and Snow could not be more responsive and more helpful in answering questions and getting you acclimated. The beach in front of the villas has an amazing set up with beds and lounge chairs and the views from Las Palmas are incredible. We had a little cocktail hour on the roof during our stay and the views of the sunset and both the ocrean and the jungle are incredible! The house itself is beyond beautiful and has everything you could ever want during your stay. Honestly we could not recommend Guy's properties any more highly as the best place to stay in all of Tulum. Thank you for everything!
