"There are so many good things to say about Villa Gordon that I do not know where to start. Everyday was better than the day before. We were eight in number (four couples) and we all felt like family the minute we arrived. Gianni had purchased American beer for us before our arrival and Sue had two bowls of guacamole with chips waiting for us in the fridge. We ate almost every meal at the villa. Gianni, Sue or Sue's mother prepared breakfast, lunch and dinner for us on the days we were eating at the villa. We were never disappointed in a meal. Gianni makes the most wonderful pasta dishes. Sue would cook our breakfast made to order and always blend up a special drink to accompany our food. If you choose to cook for yourself there is no shortage of cookware or dishes. The kitchen hosts two refrigerators, two gas stoves and one oven. The villa is very homey and decorated with bright cheery colors. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very roomy and the hot water is plentiful. The patio is very secluded which was a priority for us. The beach is beautiful. We loved the tidal pools directly off of the patio. It is too rocky to swim around the tidal pools but you can walk a bit up the beach and find a good spot. The Tankah Tres/Casa Cenote area is somewhat secluded and very safe. The restaurant at Casa Cenote has good food and a good view. I have traveled the world over and not found such gracious hosts as Gianni and Sue. They took care of our every desire with a smile. We rented a car but going into Tulum in a taxi was quite easy. We will definitely return as soon as we can.

"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!"

"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."

"Choosing Tres Palmera made our family winter escape to the Riviera Maya everything we had hoped for. The villa was particularly well suited for all ages to relax from two toddlers through grandparents. There is plenty of room inside and out to offer privacy and plenty of comfort for a group of nine. We particularly enjoyed hanging out in the pool area for hours on end taking in the fabulous ocean view while reading, swimming, napping, or digging in the sand. We are glad we arranged to have Lucy and Daniel cook most of our dinners and two breakfasts so that we did not have to leave the perfect beach front location. Vacation relaxation began the moment we arrived. It was wonderful to arrive in the late afternoon and smell dinner cooking and open a refrigerator stocked with precisely the food and beverages we had asked for. We planned our remaining diners for the week with Lucy from a menu listing our choices. (it is in spanish, google translate came in handy) We shopped in Tulum at the Chedraui, a Wall mart scale store, left at the first stoplight in Tulum, the same road that heads to the beaches. It had everything we needed and takes credit cards. As many have mentioned the beach in front of Tres Palmeras is not a good swimming beach, but the Tulum beaches are magnificent. Powder white sand 100 yards out into the ocean. We made two trips to Playa Paraiso to enjoy not only the beach but food and beverage service at the table and beach bed we rented for $10. This covers parking as well. Shower and restrooms are included, credit cards accepted. Take the left fork in the road 2 KM east of Tulum, it's about 20 minutes from the villa. We found the villa offered comfortable bedrooms, plenty of hot water. With two living rooms, rooftop deck, and spacious pool area there is plenty of room for privacy for everyone evenin a large group. We very much appreciated the privacy of the villa and the beach area, with very little car or foot traffic. It was as if we had the ocean to ourselves. I found communicating with the owner Pam easy and helpful. She has decorated the villa in a tasteful traditional way and provided everything necessary for a memorable vacation."
