There are no words to explain the perfectness of this place. Living in a romantic hut made of wooden sticks without electricity next to the most beautiful beach in the world is just a perfect beginning. Then there is a great bar and hammocks between palms everywhere. And don't worry, of course it's not everything. You can have a walk on the beach and in 15 minutes you end up in the most beautiful pyramids in Mexico. You can also take your car and go to one of Cenotes which are also pretty near and you won't believe that there is something oh so beautiful in this world.
Go to Tulum, stay in Diamante-K and live through the best moments of your lives.

Historical Traveler Reviews Diamante K Tulum
Almost Paradise (the manager girl is so unpleasant)
The site is outstading. The room are sharming. The see is so beautifull.
Unfortunatly, I can see two bad side :
1. The cooking is not as good as we would hope or expect from a so called "green" hotel (to much cream, no reall fruit juce, etc). No breakfirst before the boss gets in (around 9 !)
2. The Boss, a the young girl that plays the role. She is very unpleasant and the clients are the last thing she care about. Nothing can be done without her signature. Consequently, very bad. N.B. : the other guys and girls there are very pleasant and they to do their best under the dictaturship of that unprofessional girl.
Upscale camping by the sea
We went to Tulum expecting to hang our hammock from some trees. Due to the drop in temperature we sought selter in a slice of heaven on the edge of the Caribbean Sea in a cabana at the eco-friendly resort of Diamante K. The grounds of Diamante K are lovely with impressive sculptures and warm touches; great location close to the Tulum Ruins.
Shared bathrooms include a shower with wooden beads for a door & no hot water. Go with an open mind and you'll enjoy yourself.
If you book at a cabana with the expectations of a camping adventure you won't be disappointed.
Bring your earplugs if you stay on a weeknight as Mezzanine the hopping spot just down the way will likely have dj music until 3 a.m.
Good outweighs the not-so-good
The most beautiful place I have ever stayed - see Giligan's Island fantasy. Don't bring high-maintainance girlfriends (or boyfriends for that matter). If you can't deal with bugs, stay in Cancun. Place has a great vibe but some of the staff have a bit of too much attitude (owner please note). Light sleepers beware - you can hear everything. Hope to go back again...
A unique paradise...Away from average tourists
If you ever want to do something different and go away from routine.. go to 'DIAMANTE k' in Tulum, Mexico. It is unforgettable. This place is unique.
Stick shacks that do the trick nicely, and the place is nice. However, the price is quite high ($60+ on lower season) for a shared bathrrom. In addittin, it would be convenient for the staff to town down their attitude a bit.
Don't make a reservation...
Went there 2 years ago at X-Mas.
They PROMISED us a beach front room, but none were to be had. Others checking in also had problems. I wouldn't trust the "reservations." We left and found another place. But did spend a few hours (waiting for a room, which we turned down) on the great beach. Location and vibe were good, but many of the rooms were not so great and overpriced, definitely. Would have liked to have stayed, but they messed up...
Perfect spot for lovers/couples!!
This place is it! Perfect location between the jungle and the beach!! no crowds, no kids, beautiful scenery, and not far from the Tulum Ruins, Cancun, or other attractions like Xel-Ha Eco-Park. I found this place by accident while touring the Riviera and ended up staying for a couple of days. The prices were cheap, and the food and drinks were excellent. You can feel the breezes from the lagoon soothe you to cleep no matter if you're lying around in one of the hammocks or in your hut. The meditation room is cool, and the staff is great. This place is incredible during the day with the beautiful water, and at night under the bright moon and stars. I'm definitely going back, and this time I won't be alone and without my girlfriend!!! Definitely a best kept secret from the crowds and the noise of Cancun's hotel zone.
Chill at Diamante K
Diamante K is totally kool though i think it'll work best for people who are self motivated/directed.thewhole feel of the place was totally laid back.I found the staff to be very friendly & helpful,but don't expect them to sweat the "little stuff".Plan to go back end of July & wouldn't consider anywhere else to roost.
The Blue Lagoon exists!!!
A virgin beach, private!!! No kids, very relaxing, not 4star, more like hut on the beach. Very nice - away from it all.
I have been traveling to Tulum since my early 20's.While I have not stayed at Diamantek's other property. I can tell you that the management at Diamantek has always taken exception care of my tribe. I got married there in December and it was magical. All of our rooms were available.I heard from a reliable source that temptation island was filmed at both properties. As you know Neither properties accept paid confirmations.You were probably the only confirmed guest they had and as you now know there are many room/cabana availabilities in Tulum in a small radius. You can hardly blame management for taking the opportunity to fill both properties at one time thereby keeping everyone employed and giving employees the opportunity to earn more wages than they normally would.However, this place is not for the average traveleror high maintance people. if you ever have a opportunity to go back you should give them a second chance.

... cloud was so different. Like cave diving but realise my preferred diving is seeing stuff like coral and fish and sharks versus wrecks and caves. Excited for some more diving on trip! Got back to hostel and moved to weary traveller as didn't like other one. Room tiny with 6 people in and girls chatting loud last night, didn't seem massively social and guy not nice way about him, like it was hard work for him ...
... load our bags onto this bus and sleep in the bus if we like - what is our other option at 2:30am?! The next bus will (apparently) arrive in 3-4hours from Cancun, or Belize City, depends which guy we ask! No wait, now it will be about 2hours. At 2:45 they start the bus, we may have it sorted. No, the wiper falls to the ground again! We sleep. Joe wakes at 5:40am to pee. Now there's a mechanic trying to fix the wiper. Weren't we getting another bus at about 5am? I ...
... which they found very funny. One stinky man got on who smelt so bad, he would have made me sick if I'd have had any breakfast but fortunately, he wasn't on long. Ugh. Anyway, we got there in one piece. The journey took about 40 mins and it only cost us about £1.50 each, so I guess I can't complain too much. Plus I was still alive, so that was a bonus. We walked for ages down a long bug infested road and eventually got to the entrance to the ...
... out to be). Our driver, a Mayan kid, took us all over the place and gave us a very well summarized history of the ruins (he even taught us a few words in Mayan, but by the time we were at the entrance gate of the site again we forgot them). In contrast to Chichen Itza, the architecture here didn't have the amazing and decorative carvings we saw there. This site seemed like it was suited for the regular folks; maybe agricultural people. ...
