            I was going to have my hotel room block and my welcome dinner at the hotel. I understand that they sold the property, that they were going to cater to gay and lesbian couples, and then they changed their mind. However in the interim we canceled our hotel block. The hotel is beautiful and a great deal but they were very very difficult to deal with. It made me nervous because they lost people's faxes, didn't respond to emails, didn't know who had booked. Honestly, it may turn out to be a great place for a wedding if they get their sh**t together but in the meantime you would probably be safer choosing a hotel that is tried and true.

              I was there in January 2009, and the person who took us through had mentioned that this venue was going to start catering to the gay/lesbian crowd. It's definitely something to consider. It's a beautiful location, however, and I believe the only AI on that stretch of beach in Tulum.

                  Just to update this thread... they were sold again recently and will be going gay/lesbian and clothing optional in late 2011. This according to many many reviews on trip advisor.

                    Hotel signage is down, 100% official.  This hotel is undergoing a transformation.    We know the former director of marketing and sales who moved on to open another Playa Mujeres hotel, very near to La Amada and Exc Playa Mujeres hotels.  


                    As a hotel is taken from the non gay crowd, a new hotel opens to "any crowd"...  http://villapalmarca...om/villaSuites  IN fact, we had a meeting with Villa Palmar and was told that soonish (i bet now) they are selling rooms at discount pricing as the hotel does some transformation during the building out process.   They will be doing weddings there, hopefully soon!


                    Angela, the former Blue Tulum coordinator is also one of our personal friends.  At breakfast last week, she told us she still lives in the hotel and they are under opteration for the full switch, the Gay community is now their new target demographic for sales, confirmed. This hotel is going through a very expensive process of branding change and demographic change, its like a rebirth.


                    Problem is, Blue has done this like 3 or 4 times in the last handfull of consecutive years.  Dang yall, can you get something together so the folks don't loose our minds :)

                     

                    Espero algo bien :)
                    Cheers!
