  • Secluded Retreat

    "We stayed at Casa de Suenos in early May, 2014. Note that when you rent this place you are renting a room within it, not the entire house. The upstairs has two bedrooms and a private kitchen. The downstairs has two bedrooms and shared kitchen. We were not told which room we were getting when we rented so you may want to know just fyi. When we were there the battery back up was not working so we were not allowed to use the ceiling fan in the bedroom. Most nights it was fine but on nights with no wind it was brutal. Check that this is fixed before you go. The caretakers are expats from the US and they were wonderful and very helpful. We loved them. Be aware they have some pets that wander the property which didn't bother us at all but you may want to know this if you are allergic or have an aversion to them. The grounds were very well maintained and the room was very clean. We snorkeled right out the door at the reef which was great. Diving was great with the XTC Dive Center and fishing with Costa de Cocos was very fun. Overall a fun trip to a beautiful remote part of Mexico."

  • A very relaxing stay.

    "We had an awesome stay in Xcalak. It is much more remote than several of the other places we stayed. The beach is virtually your own beach! The unit is not fancy but was VERY clean and spacious for just the wife and I. The pans were in better shape than any of the other places we stayed. We REALLY appreciated that as we cooked most of our own meals. The water here is some of the prettiest we saw and the snorkeling was superb. Roberta was very communicative with us from the get go."

  • Perfect get away in any which way!

    "My husband and I live in Valladolid and operate there a small b&b. We had not had the opportunity to get away in 2 years, so this was a much needed break from our routine! Even if you live in paradise you need to get away every once in a while! I was able to secure our place on a short notice and the communication with Brent, the owner, was great and fast! We were able to come down with 2 of our dogs, the other ones were taking care of by a good friend staying at our place. We have been only briefly in Xcalak in April, and were happy to stay for 4 nights now! Everything was perfect, the owner is a great guy, and this place is perfect for getting away from it all, nature lovers, ocean lovers, and everyone who appreciates sitting on the deck, looking into the wonderful ocean! It was our 14th anniversary get away and it could have not been better! Do not come if you need to be entertained, but come for the great nature, wildlife, snorkeling, kayaking, boating, manatees and manta rays! Be sure to stock up on groceries, as there are not too many places to go to for eating out, and this place is about 8 km out of town on a pretty good gravel road. It was perfect for us, as we wanted the quiet, so you need to know what you are looking for... You will be amazed by the reef and the turquoise water! Also very close to Belize, and at great XTC Dive Centre, you can book to there and to other amazing places! With a car you can do easily day trips to Chetumal, Bacalar, Calakmul, and other places! It's a place that puts a relaxed smile on your face... the house, the surroundings, and the owner! There are bikes for your use and we biked down the road with our dogs. Love to come back as soon as possible! Thank you so much for these wonderful days!"

  • Quiet Oasis for our Family to Explore

    "We spent five nights at Casa de Paloma and loved everyone of them. The property is very clean and cared for. The property caretakers were on hand to help with anything that we needed and very nice. The location was postcard perfect. We loved the time spent on our little beach and snorkeling right out the front door. We had the joy of swimming with numerous fish and sting ray. Our fishing/snorkeling guide Victor was fantastic and the kids hauled in so many fish that fishing was not boring. We ate at a few restaurants, bought fruit and cakes from the trucks that drive right to your door. We saw a manatee in the mangroves and birds on bird island. Lots of outdoor activities to keep you busy. A good selection of restaurants. The people are super pleasant. We thought the road to the Xcalak would be undeveloped but it was a great narrow highway the entire way and no problems at all. The house is located just outside of town so it was quiet but with easy access to town amenities. We hope to return one day soon."
