Villa Tres Delfines is a beachfront villa located on the gorgeous sandy beach of Soliman Bay. Set in spacious, beautifully landscaped tropical gardens, this is the perfect get away with friends or family. Enjoy snorkelling and kayaking in the calm, protected, blue waters of the bay, take in the magnificent views of the Caribbean and the jungle from our roof decks, fly a kite, build a sand castle, walk the perfect crescent shaped beach, watch the pelicans overhead, the iguanas sunning on the rocks, or just relax in one of the hammocks. Nearby are spectacular Mayan ruins, cenotes (watery caves unique to the area), jungle adventures, scuba diving, and fishing, as well as restaurants and shopping in the quaint town of Tulum (about 10 minutes away). The villa includes daily maid service, satelite TV, Internet access, kayaks and an optional chef service.

Soliman Bay is a perfect crescent shaped bay, with a lovely sandy beach, calm protected waters, and fantastic coral reefs for snorkelling. The bay is a secure gated community of private homes, so you will have the beach to yourself.

Villa Tres Delfines has a spacious open-plan living, dining and kitchen area. In the living room is a flat-screen TV, with Sky TV, DVD player and VCR. There is also a music system, plenty of books, guidebooks and games. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, utensils, range/oven, fridge, micro etc.

On the main floor are 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. All bedrooms have sliding doors leading out to beachfront palapa patios. Upstairs is a huge master suite with a spacious 180 degree view of the bay. The suite leads out onto a deck with a palapa, outdoor seating area and hammock. Finally on the roof is an observation deck with a 360 degree view of ocean, beach, mangroves and the sunset.

Daily housekeeping is included in the rental. Optional chef service is available. Olivia (the cook) prepares delicious Mexican, Guatemalan and American food.

Two kayaks are provided with paddles and life jackets, including youth sizes. You can kayak out to protected reefs in the bay for great snorkelling, or snorkel from the beach. For the kids we also have sand toys, buckets and shovels.

Our resident iguana Spiky is usually sunning himself above the waterfall cascading into the pool. In the gardens nearby is an aviary. Our kids love to feed the birds.

Very relaxing week in the sun enjoying snorkeling, cenotes, and pyramids. Food was excellent and prepared by house keeper Maria with William keeping our beach polished. Great time for family and will return!

Nice place, but....

  • 1 of 5

There is a construction going on right next door. If you want to relax at a nice place - wait until this is done. It starts 8 am in the morning till 5 pm, hammering/cutting and many other funny noises. We moved out to another place because of this.

Beautiful, but not serene. Keep the headphones handy!

  • 4 of 5

The location was wonderful, just like the pictures. Unfortunately there was some major construction next door. The noise started at 6AM and didn't end until 6 PM. There are 20 plus workers who stay the night in hammocks. There is a wall, but at the beach you can see and hear the construction. Beyond that, there was no hot water, until right before we left and it was spotty. The air conditioner in one of the rooms was finally replaced two nights before we left. Gabby and Pancho are new, and inexperienced. I'm sure they will improve. The food was really good. I still rated it 4 stars because we had a lovely time, it is a gorgeous spot. It was a perfect storm of unfortunate events, and inexperienced staff. I read so many reviews before booking and they were amazing. Hopefully it will be that way again soon.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, I'm so sorry your visit coincided with some very noisy excavation work (I think they were driving piles or excavating the pool). I am hopeful that the noise level will be less when the excavation/foundation work is done. Based on your feedback we have extended our wall with a wooden fence on the beach, which should improve the privacy further. Regarding the hot water & AC, our goal is always to fix any problems within a day. I apologize for the extra delay -- the first attempt at repair did not succeed so they had to come back the next day with a replacement AC. I'm really glad you still had a nice vacation, and that you enjoyed the food. We look forward to having you back.

Awsome place and experience but not without some annoyance.....

  • 4 of 5

The home is beautiful and in a great location. PERIOD! Everything you want to do is right there and even if you want to book excursions, that's just down the beach. We had a really nice vacation, but here's the hook: Right next door there is construction going on in an empty lot. They start at 6. End at 6. About 20 on site workers. Power equipment making lots of noise etc., etc. They start, you stop sleeping. Every day and it will be continuing for the next couple years if not more. Also no hot water and the on site help is not friendly (kind of acting put out).

Owner's Response: Dear Guest, I am so sorry that your stay was less than perfect. Our goal is always to ensure you have an unforgettable dream vacation. Our long-time housekeeper Olivia retired last month, so we have new help. I'm so sorry if you encountered rough edges. Gabby and Pancho are new to the job, but they are hard workers and eager to learn and are getting up to speed quickly. Our more recent guests are really enjoying Gabby’s cooking. We do have construction that has started next door. We have built an 8--10 ft compound wall, which together with our many palm trees, insulates our guests as much as possible. I feel this gives us very good visual isolation -- you cannot see the construction from our property -- and it blocks a lot of the noise, but unfortunately we cannot ensure 100% sound isolation. I do apologize that this detracted from your experience. Regarding the hot water: We had a very unusual power outage last week that affected 5 Mexican states. This damaged our water heater and booster pump. We got our tech on it the same day, and restored the heater, but it took a couple of days to get a replacement booster pump, so the pressure was low for those days. We’re glad you enjoyed your vacation despite these hiccups, and we do hope we can have you back again soon. Cheers --arul

Great location, quiet beach, a great place to get away from it all, but with plenty to do.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful snorkeling, kayaking. If you like water, this is s great place to go. The house stayed cool with the ocean breezes, the pool was great and the rooftop was a great place to hang out. The bay was quiet, but the snorkeling great. The hotel restaurant about a mile away was superb. The ruins were so close it was a half to three quarters day trip. We would do it again in a heartbeat.
