The Tulum beach villa, Suenos Tulum, (Tulum Dreams) is more tribal the touristy. It has 12 rooms, located throughout five stucco buildings, with round port-hole windows and balconies shaped like the prow of a boat. With hand- painted murals, wall relief’s and mosaic inlays in traditional electricity. The kitchen appliances and water heaters run on butane gas. Solar panels generate the lights and electricity in the office and the kitchen.
Book your reservation to Tulum Beach villa online before your arrival, so that you are greeted at the door with a margarita, rather than a registration card and then led through the palm trees to your hideaway. For your room, take a flashlight, since the solar power doesn’t kick in until dusk and even then the rooms are dim. The five buildings with the guestrooms are names after elements. Sol (Sun), Lluvia( Rain), Luna( Moon), Tierra (Earth), and Selva ( Jungle), they are thematically and artistically decorated.
There are not telephones, T.V.’s, C.D. players or other electronic luxuries. If you need to use high speed internet connection or charge your cell phone you can use the office.
