There are many hotels on Tulum Beach, some closer to the little center other after the security check point. This is very close to Sian Kaan gate so pretty far in but this is exactly what we were looking for; a quiet peace of Paradise. The rooms and the beds are so comfortable, the beach and the water so unbelievably...

Such a great place to be - most beautiful beach and nice people! The cabanas are spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly and always ready to help. La Via Laktea is an insider tipp for people who appreciate a particular kind of vacation - far away from mass tourism. No matter if you're on your own and just...

I traveled with my husband and 10 year old daughter for a short trip from Washington DC. La Via Laktea was exactly what we were looking for. I had originally tried to stay at a more well know hotel closer to the center of Tulum Beach town upon the recommendation of several people...I am so happy that there was no...

My wife and I recently stayed at La Via Laktea for 7 nights and found the location beautiful and quiet - just what we wanted. Our room was simple chique: lovely with a gorgeous view (upstairs ocean front balcony), and the breakfasts were tasty and reasonable. The principle area to be improved - and one to turn it from Average...

This was our second time staying at La Via Laktea's with our 3 kids (ages 11,8,6) and let's just say "We LOVE it!". The website is an exact description of what you will find, there is no misrepresentation what so ever. La Via Laktea is an Eco-Friendly property with 10 cabanas as they have recently added a cabana. A beautiful,...

Our stay was perfect. Bambou the owner welcomed us with a fresh beer, and managed to find us a table at the "must try" restaurant El Hechizo for my wife birthday, the day we arrived and plenty of very good advices and places to try. The Via laktea is located at the very end of Tulum Playa, almost at sian...

From the website and it's amazing beach front location (not forgetting the price) you'd think la Via Laktea was paradise but how wrong can first impressions be...

I'm Bamb˙, one of the owners of La VÌa Laktea. I would like to comment on the recent angry reviews of La VÌa Laktea. I don't want to get into a he-said she said argument, but some of the complaints are questions of taste. Others are not accurate. I was especially disturbed to read that we supposedly presented these guests...
