About this listing

Large room with private bathroom steps away from the beach. The balcony and terrace have Caribbean Sea and jungle views. Comfortable, charming room with king size bed and a small living room set. Located on second floor.

Please note: Our neighbors are currently building so there may be noise from 7am-5pm, M-Sat. We have taken this into account in our pricing.

The space

Large suite style room with king size bed, closet, dresser, large full-length mirror, closet, floor fan, A/C and private bathroom. You also have a small balcony and a large deck. The deck is technically shared as it is used to access another room, but functionally it is exclusive to the Caribbean Suite.

The room is steps away from the Caribbean Sea and has a nice view of the water between the roofs of the palapas in front of it. It's cool, clean and light-filled. This room is big and has a moon themed mural. Our Caribe Suite is simple but you don't need much when staying so close to Tulum's natural beauty.

The large deck is ideal for watching the stars at night; on a moonless night you can easily make out the Milky Way.

Guest access

The best thing you will have access to is the white sand Caribbean beach just steps from your room.

The beach access is through our affiliated beach club located on the same property. Use of Akiin Beach Club facilities, such as furniture, outdoor showers, etc. are included. The beach club is usually open for breakfast and lunch. They also have an easy-going beach bar. The beach club is open to the public and often hosts groups and weddings.

You will also have access to the lush jungle garden, which features hammocks and a picnic table. The garden is for guests of our eight accommodations, so it's pretty private (on wedding days and a few other rare days the beachclub guests walk through this area to access the beach).

There are sea kayaks on the property that are available for your use.

We offer Wi-Fi, though it is slow and often unreliable. If constant Wi-Fi access is important to you we are unable to provide it at this time. Many Wi-Fi locations at nearby beach clubs and restaurants are available.

Interaction with guests

I'm rarely on site but our property manager is there five days a week from 10am to 6pm and is often there for check in/out. We are very good at responding quickly to messages during waking hours. Our property manager tries to meet all our guests at some point during their stay, but we don't always coincide. If you have a question or concern please let me or my staff know as soon as possible; don't wait to run into us.

We work with a small staff to ensure you have a relaxing and positive experience. The cleaning staff will stop in nearly every day. The parking attendant usually takes care of guests checking in after dark. We cater to independent travelers that look for privacy and are happy to explore on their own. In an emergency I am available by phone; also the head of maintenance lives on site, though he does not speak English.

We are always happy to help, but until we develop mind reading abilities, please let us know if you have any questions or issues as they occur. We appreciate having the opportunity to address them.

Other things to note

Please note: Our neighbors are currently building so there may be noise from 7am-5pm. We have taken these factors into account in our pricing.

All of our properties are non-smoking. This is strictly enforced as it is a serious fire hazard for our thatched roof palapas. We want you to be safe!

We recommend you bring a flashlight or headlamp, mosquito repellent and sunscreen with high SPF.

Many establishments on the beach are cash only. ATM's are located in various locations throughout the beach road, including two on our property. However the ATM's located in town and at grocery stores are less prone to being out of service and have lower fees.

Please do not throw toilet paper in the toilet, use the wastebaskets provided instead.

Rooms are cleaned almost daily; fresh towels and sheets are provided every third day unless requested. Keep in mind that all water and electricity must be brought in or generated so please be mindful of your consumption.

All rooms have 24hr electricity.

Well-behaved children are welcome.

Ask if there is a wedding or event planned at the beach club during your stay. Weddings occur most weekends and some weekdays throughout the year and can go until 2am (most end at midnight). On those occasions the beachfront area is cordoned off so that you have a private beach separate from the wedding party.

The sinks and showers drain to a grey water garden so please use biodegradable soaps if possible.

If you're not getting hot water, let us know. The pilot light on the heater sometimes blows out with the sea breeze and must be reignited manually.

There is no kitchen access.

Our property is not baby-proofed.

WiFi is unreliable.

Please keep these limitations in mind before you book. No refunds will be provided for the issues mentioned above.

This was a comfortable, clean and enjoyable place to stay. The food was great, and having the ability to order food and drinks right from the beach was awesome! The staff were very professional, friendly and accommodating. I would stay here again!

Richard's place was as described. The location is really what makes the room worthwhile. However, when we arrived the bathroom was not cleaned and the water in the bathroom was at a trickle. The last two days, the water just stopped running. When I communicated this problem to Richard, he was quick to respond but the water was never fixed and he did not follow up with me again about the issue.

Stefanie is great. The beach is awsome and not to crowded. The local icecream bar over the street is awsome. If you are an early bird, you might have to wait until 8am. To find a restaurant that is open. Most of them open at 9am. There might be music running all night from the events akiin is throwing. All in all a very good pleace to stay

I can't say enough about how lovely this location was.... The staff is super friendly, the place is magical. There was no construction noise at all. The sound from the generator that is mentioned o the listing is really none existent when you are inside the room. This is a wonderful value, you cannot beat the location. Richards communication was prestine to say the least. Sherif

I am part of a family of entrepreneurs overworking ourselves in paradise. I take care of most rental inquiries at La Palmita and Akiin Beach and am happy to help in any way I can during your stay. When I'm not responding to Airbnb requests I train for an event called Travesia Sagrada Maya, swim in local cenotes, play ultimate frisbee and hang out with my wife and our dogs.
