Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms with ocean view

If you have looked at this property before, TAKE ANOTHER LOOK TODAY! A recent renovation and redecoration has taken this already stunning property to the next level of luxury.

Situated on Soliman Bay in the Tulum area of the Riviera Maya, this tranquil 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath home provides every imaginable amenity in an unparalleled setting. Complimentary round-trip airport-to-villa transportation insures a seamless transition to your Mexican paradise. The fully updated main house includes ample living and dining space with gorgeous marble floors, a 70” plasma TV, unique onyx dining table, and fully retractable sliding doors for full enjoyment of the sea breezes. A convenient half-bath holds a unique decorative standing sink with a fountain-style faucet. The well-equipped kitchen includes granite counters, a commercial oven and stove, spacious refrigerator, deep fryer, and all cookware and tableware. The master bedroom includes a king-sized bed, en-suite bath with lit white onyx sinks, and a luxurious fully furnished balcony overlooking Soliman Bay. The main house guest room contains a queen-sized bed and its own en-suite bathroom with marble, granite and onyx finishes. Head upstairs to the roof terrace to take in the panoramic view of the sea.

A short stroll under a large traditional Mayan palapa will lead you to two separate casitas each with a bedroom and a private bathroom…both with views of the Caribbean Sea.

You will find many thoughtful touches for your stay including air conditioning and ceiling fans, wi-fi internet accessibility, Bluetooth sound system, a 48” plasma TV and security lockbox in each bedroom, covered parking for two vehicles, satellite television, daily maid service (except Sunday & Holidays) and more…….

Just outside the doors and conveniently accessible from all buildings, you will find stunning tropical gardens bordering a magnificent pool with Caribbean vistas. There’s plenty of room to relax here with outdoor dining, pool-side lounge chairs and side tables. An outdoor shower finished in marble provides an elegant space to clean the sand off at the end of a relaxing beach day. If you fancy an outdoor meal, you will find a “kitchen palapa”, equipped with a large gas grill, bar refrigerator (which can be stocked upon request), bar stools and a special dining table designed from the cross-section of a large tree.

Wander down to the pristine beach for some quiet time surfside. Enjoy the soft Caribbean sands, or nap the day away in a Mayan hammock under a rustic pergola. If you feel you’ve rested enough, get in that water in our paddle boards and kayaks and enjoy quiet Soliman Bay which is protected by the 2nd largest natural reef in the world…perfect for snorkeling!

If you are in the mood to explore, you will find yourself conveniently close to the ancient attractions of Tulum, as well as its burgeoning restaurant scene. The Coba ruins and those unique crystal-clear cenotes of the region are nearby as well.

However, if the charms of Mar Azul are simply too great to leave, consider arranging an all-inclusive package which can provide a driver, 3 expertly prepared meals a day, a private bartender, and even pool- or beach-side massages.

Ok. Just returned and can say we loved the home. Beach was small and water rocky and un pleasant. You can walk down 500 yes and find better access however it still is not a smooth sandy entrance. We are spoiled , granted! We like smooth sandy entrance to a crystal clear sandy bottom. Snorkeling was weak with very little to see in front of home. Fishing is not allowed!! I even hired the crew down at the hotel and they stunk. Total rip off they had no clue and had no set mapping of real rocks or drop offs. The access road is the absolute WORST road ever!!!! Insanely bad potholes which made access miserable! Ridiculous. You are also at least 45 min from Playa where all the action is meaning restaurants and shopping. There is nothing in Tulum worth mentioning. Oscar and lalos across the road was good and would return, however, pricey for the food and ambiance. If you want total solitude you will enjoy the property. The pool is small but works and the staff of Kevin and Lourdes were always helpful. WiFi was spotty at best but worked. The kayaks were vintage dating to the 90's ,hated them! Heavy and took on water. The yard was wonderful as was the outdoor kitchen, loved that! Indoor was great with good tv's all tied to SKY tv in spanish go to 400's for English. Would we go back? No. Sorry owners. The beach was not for us and it was to removed from decent restaurants . We have stayed in homes in playa secreto in puerto Morelos and found access much better to shopping and restaurants. We messed up on location. Again, the home was very nice and highly recommend as would add the pool area and furniture with palapa with outdoor kitchen. Owners,, invest in new kayaks please, yours are the oldest on the bay.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing time at the gorgeous Villa Mar Azul on Soliman Bay. The setting is absolutely breathtaking, overlooking the turquoise waters of this peaceful bay, which is bordered by a barrier reef, thereby blessing it with gentle waves and calm waters. It's perfect for kayaking, swimming, and snorkeling. There is only one boutique hotel, and 35-ish houses along the beach, so it feels very private and quiet.

The Villa itself has been completely and beautifully remodeled and updated with a wonderful, contemporary, light and open feeling. There's a view of the magnificent water from almost every window. If you like to cook, you'll love the spectacular new kitchen, or you may like to grill at the outdoor kitchen/bar under the palapa, which is also a great place to hang out and entertain. The whole place, main house, two-story casita, palapa, pool area and beach, was immaculate and the service was absolutely wonderful and unobtrusive.

Other than laying around on our lounge chairs, reading and looking at the water, we especially enjoyed kayaking; (there are two kayaks at the property), and taking walks along the beach. Also, we snorkeled every day and saw rays, snapper, flounder, puffer fish, and many other tropical fish. We found the snorkeling to be best down near the hotel, which is a pleasant 3/4 mile walk down the beach. You can also kayak or swim out closer to the reef for great snorkeling.

We loved going into Tulum for breakfasts and dinners. It's a short 10-15 minute drive from the Villa. It's fun to walk around Tulum as well, and we found some really great boutique shopping. In general, meals were incredibly reasonable. We also had a fantastic meal and enjoyed live music at Oscar & Lalo's, just across the highway.

We really fell in love with Mar Azul, and truly can't wait to go back. We left feeling rested and rejuvenated and it now has a special place in our hearts!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We just left Villa Mar Azul and we were never so sad to leave a place! It was even better than the pictures and what we had expected! Everything was as described and clean and maintained! The kitchen was so well appointed - it was better than my home kitchen. But we loved cooking on the outside grill and eating outside looking over pool and beach and enjoying the most wonderful breeze. We had this lovely breeze the whole week and almost never used the a/c - opened doors and breeze kept us wonderfully comfortable.

The location is right on the bay!! There were 2 kayaks for use and we all took advantage of this. The reef off of of Soliman bay is part of the Belize Barrier Reef - 2nd largest barrier reef in the world. My son saw turtles and skates when snorkeling! (There was also snorkeling equipment for our use!!)

Everything we could have needed or wanted was there - the service was fabulous - light cleaning every day inside and out and the management was great!

The locations was fabulous for visiting some sites - Tulum, Coba, Cenote Dos Ojos...there are tons more but it was hard to leave our villa paradise. When we didn't cook we ate at Oscar & Lalo's, Chamico (short walk along the beach), And a lovely find in Tulum - The Kitchen Table.

I cannot recommend this property highly enough - it was a vacation to remember for all of us. My three year old grand daughter called it her Castle and indeed it was!!!!

Owner's Response: Hi, Thank you for staying with us. It truly was a pleasure to assist you and your family. We thought of all the amenities we would like to enjoy on our vacation and included them in our home for our guests to enjoy. It is wonderful you were able to make use of the snorkel gear and kayaks. It is magnificent to see turtles in the open water and not rare to see them in this bay! We hope you visit us again.

Villa in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is paradise. The property with all the upscale amenities couldn't have been better. The newly redecorated villa with beautiful modern decor and a kitchen supplied well having granite and onyx touches. We admired the art which was so tastefully done. We had a group of four adult couples wanting to see the area and honestly didn't want to leave this property because of the vistas and peacefulness. The outdoor kitchen and pool were beautiful and location to beach was spectacular. We enjoyed walking the beach and ate at Chamicos and Sahara restaurants which were outstanding. I would highly recommend this villa as I cannot wait to book again next year.

Amazing Perfect Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We usually stay at another place in Soliman Bay, but when that was booked I made a last minute decision to book Villa Mar Azul. I was surprised that it was available but found out it had recently been completely remodeled by new owners and was just starting to take reservations. The pictures I viewed online were not of the remodel and honestly, did not look all that appealing. I was told that new pictures and a web site will be up in the next few weeks. We just wanted the serenity of Soliman Bay. When we showed up the Villa took our breath away. We were taken back by the beauty of this place. It really is exquisite. Marble floors and granite throughout. Very contemporary with touches of traditional Mexican. As my wife said, 'gorgeous artwork" throughout. The beds were some of the most comfortable we've ever stayed in. We had a fully stocked bar and chose to have some meals catered. The area offers so many good restaurants especially Oscar and Lalos (across the highway) and Zamas on Tulum beach road. We usually like to have both options, but the food was so good and really reasonable I wish we had chosen to eat in more. The pool is not huge, but perfect for a dip after the ocean. The palapa with the outdoor kitchen and bar are really beautiful, unique and convenient. Better than some 5 star hotels we've stayed at. The beach is very nice, but I recommend water shoes since there are some rocks in the water until you get further out in the bay. They had water shoes and snorkeling gear available for our use. The snorkeling was fantastic, as usual. Turtles and rays and so many beautiful fish. This place is a steal for the price and I highly recommend it. I just wish we could have stayed longer. The management company made our stay memorable and helped book a couple of tours. Erin from Latin Latitude Vacations knows what she is doing! I think we've found our paradise. We will be back!
