  • Perfect romantic, private, peaceful retreat

    "My fiance and I stayed in the casita for 6 nights this July and were in heaven. The casita has amenities we were seeking that the cabanas did not offer, like a full kitchen and air conditioning. Though, after seeing the two separate cabanas I think we would have been perfectly happy in one of them as well. First, we were greeted immediately by Art, the owner. He and his wife were both kind and available to ask questions of, but they were very respectful of our privacy and did not interfere at all with our quiet times. They reside on-site in a detached home near the casita. We had daily maid service and she was amazing!! Considering the enormous amounts of sand we tracked in along with little bugs and who knows what else, we always returned to a clean and neat home. It is hard to convey just how special this place is, but it was exactly what we wanted for the right price. I looked from Akumal down to Tulum, and had stayed in Soliman Bay twice before, but the prices were not within our range, and we only needed a bed, bath and kitchen, not an elaborate mansion or pool. This fit the bill. The bay just steps from your sliding glass door is calm and fun to snorkel in, and there are three decent restaurants just south walkable along the beach or road from the casita and cabanas. I would hope anyone booking here understands that Tankah is nothing like Cancun...the restaurants close up at nine, and they are far from fancy. People come here for peace and to soak in the beauty of this area not for partying or late nights. A car rental is probably necessary to 90% of visitors, and it was nice for us to have one since we bought groceries in Tulum (huge market[s] there) and went to a couple nearby areas for the day. Having the full kitchen in the casita was handy and we prepared almost all our meals in the casita since it is equipped with everything you need. If you feel the need for a little pampering there is a big resort 5 minutes drive south called Dreams. We got the 1/2 day pass for $50 per person and got all you can eat and drink, from 12 to 6pm. They have a swim up bar, several restaurants, kayaks for borrowing, you name it. It was fun to have the little luxuries, but everywhere we went we just wanted to get back to this little Slice of Paradise in Tankah! In closing, be prepared to fall in love here. With nature, with yourself or your partner all over again, and with just being still!!"

  • Perfection

    "Our all time favorite getaway. 2 families (4 adults & 3 kids ages 4-6) have plenty of space to spread out & explore the area. It was our second visit in the last 1.5 years. The first visit was just a tease at 6 days so we stayed for 11 this time. The last night my 6 year old cried because it was not long enough and he never wanted to leave. Me either!!! We had Edith cook every chance we could. Her cooking is amazing & Wesli, Yobany & all take great care to make sure our visit is fantastic. We rented a van so we could explore every morning with easy half day trips to Tulum, Akumal, Coba, Muyil, Dos Ojos, etc. Then we could spend the afternoon back at the house enjoying the beach, pool, watching the pelicans catch fish, the cenote down the road, margaritas from Casa Cenote, shrimp tacos and dessert from Blue Sky, and the wonderful beach. And of course Edith's guacamole, the best on the planet! Thanks again to Frank and Judy for opening their home & hope our next stay could be for a month!!"

  • Outstanding vacation location and Home!

    "We stayed here for two weeks in March and had an absolute fabulous time! The owner was extremely helpful prior to our departure with all the necessary information for our trip. The staff at the house were extremely courteous and helpful, and taking the advice of prior comments, we scheduled the cook for numerous meals (more the second week after we tasted how delicious her meals were!). Her Banana bread was absolutely fabulous! Her meals were better than we could be downtown and her afternoon snacks of guacamole and salsa (as well as the quesadilla) every day was some of the best we have ever had! I would definitely recommend this place and we will be coming back! The swimming pool was a real treat and the ocean fabulous. Sporting equipment was great and the housekeeping service was top notch!"

  • Lovely stay in Tankah

    "We arrived at the Villa Mariposa with our teenaged girls after a short stay in the authentic town of Vallalodid. Villa Mariposa has a nice aesthetic with lovely views and grounds beautifully tended by the caretakers. Tranquil, breezy and outside the fray of a now crowded Tulum, the Villa is nicely situated for day trips to local ruins, cenotes and lagoons. A beautiful cenote with it's beach front restaurant (and killer margaritas!) just down the street, enabled us to stay and feel more like locals and less like tourists. It was wonderful to see our now "grown up girls" playing and relaxing like children again."
