Tres Palmeras

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and well cared for home with kind and efficient caretakers. Right on beautiful beach so you can go to sleep with waves crashing. Very relaxing and low key with easy access to snorkeling, ruins, dining, fishing, shopping and more. We enjoyed just laying out on the back deck by the pool. We took our three teenagers and they enjoyed it too. We'd go back!

Ideal vacation spot for large family

  • 5 of 5

Tres Palmeras was a beautiful and spacious place to spend our vacation week. The three kids (ages 3, 4, and 5) divided their time between the pool, digging in the sand on the beach, and playing legos in the common area of the house. The six adults lounged in the deck chairs and hammocks poolside, went for walks on the beach, and napped in the comfortable beds. We shopped for groceries in Tulum (15 min. drive) and enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. Our three most favorite dinners were prepared by the caretakers of the house, and we highly recommend this! The cost, convenience, and quality were all better than going to a restaurant.

Many memories

  • 4 of 5

The property is beautiful and well kept. We especially liked the pool facing the ocean it's a dream. Restaurant, Cenote, and fishing were on our road. Lots of shopping as well. The beds were not comfortable and inconsistent hot water. Be sure to visit Xcaret.

Great time was had by all!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, clean home with a fabulous view, although the ocean is too rough and rocky for swimming off the beach. The walk to Tankah Bay, for calm water, is long for little legs. The beach has lots of trash (in undeveloped areas) and seaweed. Will does a nice job keeping the house beach raked and pretty. There's a gorgeous cenote about a hundred yards down the road, which we didn't use, but it looks breathtaking. Also down the road is a great restaurant, Blue Sky. Good shrimp tacos and tasty mojitos - even a brick oven for pizza. However, Will and Gloria cooked our favorite meals. What a treat! They are a gracious, lovely couple who had margaritas and guacamole waiting the minute we walked in. We felt very pampered. I made my bed the first morning and Gloria re-made it. Plenty of beach and regular towels/wash cloths, too. The house provides bottled water.

The house, particularly the pool, is a little worn (kids didn't care) but comfortable beds and well appointed. My only slight criticism, and because I'm a gardener, is that the front of the house, pots and ground, look a little sad.

Tulum was hot and crazy crowded. Go early or late and hire a guide. Coba worth the drive if only so the kids can climb around and bike thru the jungle. Xel-Ha is well done, big fun and I highly recommend. Swim with the dolphins, skip the manatees. It's not worth the cost.

The Cancun airport was a mad house (possibly because we were there Spring break.) We spent an arrival hour dealing with car rental. It's an hour and a half drive from the airport to the house.

It was a great week and we will definitely consider a return visit. Hasta la vista Tulum.

Our stay for 8 days with 10 people was relaxing and truly a piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had an eight day stay with 10 people. Overall first impression was one of elegance and a perfect spot for relaxation. We walked in and were met with fresh guacamole and pico with chips made by the property caretakers Will and Gloria. The floor plan is perfect for a large group. We had some early risers in the group and some that slept in and with the bedroom door closed, no outside noise could be heard. Our group spent hours in the afternoon enjoying the pool and view from back patio. We collected sea shells on the beach and kayaked in front of the casa. Xel ha is just 10 minute drive and 4 different restaurants are within walking distance of this property. We tried all the restaurants and found them each to be delightful. Our favorite meal however; was the grilled grouper and bacon wrapped shrimp with all the trimmings that Will and Gloria made for us at the property. We felt very spoiled. Will also recommended a local fisherman to take some of our group fishing and they caught a 5 foot 50 lb barracuda! Will also prepared that fish into ceviche and filets for us. Our beds were made, entire house cleaned, pool cleaned and dishes were done each day for us by these efficient caretakers. The road is a private road with private security and security even patrolled the beach at night giving even the most anxious of our group piece of mind. We all agreed this was the perfect home in the perfect location. We would definately return to this property if we return to this area.
