3 hotels evicted from properties in Tulum, guests and all

Three hotels in the coastal area of ​​Tulum were evicted Wednesday morning, apparently due to a dispute between the properties and the company Santa María S. de R. L.

Workers and even guests had to leave the hotels when agents of the Quintana Roo Prosecutor’s Office and the police began the eviction pursuant to orders of two civil courts based in the municipality of Solidaridad.

The affected hotels were Orchid Beach House, Tatich Tulum and Kuuxum. Although agents of the Prosecutor’s Office also arrived at the hotel Coco Unlimited, the eviction there was suspended. According to the newspaper Milenio, this was the only lodging center in which actuaries and owners reached an agreement for guests and workers to return to the place as well as hotel furniture that had already been evicted.

The newspaper La Jornada Maya reported that the operation lasted more than four hours and ended in the afternoon. Since cargo trucks were parked outside the properties for employees to load the furniture, traffic was affected.

According to La Jornada Maya, the company Santa María S. de R. L. argues it owns the hotel properties. Other hotel owners reportedly said they were surprised to learn that lawsuits between the Pino Suárez ejido and hotels over property ownership continue to take place.

Milenio reported that none of the owners or managers involved in the evictions gave statements about what happened.
