  • 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!!"

  • Nice week and change from the mega-resorts

    "We spent a very nice week at Tres Palmeras - two families and five kids ages 6-16. The house is located on a developing stretch of land with other beach houses and a few inns/villas. The land is a bit further out so that the beach borders the reef/limestone break and is not swimmable - water shoes are a must! The breaking waves, breeze and view from the hammock are world-class. However, use the sea-kayak at your own risk. Getting out is OK but it is dangerous coming back in. The neighborhood has a cenote, a few restaurants and some security (but lock up anyway!). The house has just about everything you would need, including extra water shoes and some snorkle gear. We ran out of water once so heed the notices to conserve. The view from the rooftop at night is stunning if you happen to be there for either a full or a new moon! We rented a car so that gave us some freedom to explore Tulum and the other beaches and ruins. La Zebra, as recommended by Pam, is on a beautiful stretch of beach so good we went back. Paraiso Beach has more of a public beach feel and brings in cruise ship tours. The ruins at Coba and Tulum are nice (but get there as early as possible for Tulum - the ruins and view are nice but gets very crowded with tour buses by 10 AM.). Tulum is a nice town and we found a couple cheap but tasty taco stands. Better than the hoards at Cancun or Playa de Carmen. I took off one star as the house was a little rough around the edges as you would expect of any beach house due to the elements. We couldn't get the kitchen fan to work and a few of the exterior light fixtures were broken (including a recessed light that dangled precariously from a few feet of wire on the porch)."

  • Excellent

    "Everything about this home was wonderful, well maintained and cared for. The on site staff were lovely, very friendly and were there but unobtrusive throughout the time we were there. Our kids loved the two dogs that live there as they felt like they were in their own home. Whilst you can't swim directly off the beach, we kayaked out each day, through the anchors and swam in the crystal warm waters. The house is fully equipped and really comfortable. Highly recommended..."

  • Beautiful spot on the beach

    "I stayed here with 7 adults for a week. The villa was just perfect - the view and access to the beach are even better than the pictures! The house spills out to the patio with plenty of chaise lounges around the pool, which in turn spills out into a picturesque patch of sand and tide pools. The rooms were spacious, the wi-fi was excellent, the family room was comfortable, and the staff on-site did a wonderful job keeping things clean and cozy. The kitchen has a 4 burner range and microwave, and while there is no oven, the property has a charcoal grill. The drive to the town of Tulum took longer than I was expecting - generally about 25 minutes. The ocean directly in front of the house is too rocky and rough to be swimmable, but if you walk 10 minutes north along the beach you are in the center of a swimmer-friendly bay. Booking and check-in were easy, and my questions over email were answered promptly and thoroughly. I highly recommended the villa - you'll definitely enjoy your stay!"
