unforgettable experience *

  • 5 of 5

I attended a meditation retreat at this charming and private villa in September 2016. The room/casita that I stayed in for my week long visit was an art gallery/studio turned into a spacious and and comfortable room, with full bathroom and private entry aside from the main house. The whole villa feels like your own little paradise close enough to the picturesque town center where there is shopping, site seeing, a meuseum and a very impressive and beautiful convent founded in 1549. Refreshing and gorgeous cenotes are also near by and ancient ruin cites are all within the small magical town of Izamal. When back at the villa after or before meditation practice, I enjoyed afternoons rocking on the hammocks surrounded by beautiful variety of plants and trees, or soaking up the sun rays in the crystal clear and well kept pool. This property is amazing, you get much more than what you pay for. Highly recommend it for family reunions, friends gathering, retreats etc. Loved Villa Buenaflor will Definitely be back !

Peace Seeking Meditator

  • 5 of 5

The week long meditation retreat that I participated was held at the Villa Buenaflor and I could not be happier. My bedroom was clean, well-equipped and air-conditioned which I thank the Gods because it is hot outside. The back yard had a pool, lots of trees and plants and hammocks to relax in this shady paradise. The patio was big enough to handle our group of yoga meditators and I was even able to get a relaxing massage on the property. It is an ideal place to relax, enjoy nature and decompress from our stressful lives. There are so many places to visit in Izamal, a charming town full of art, history, culture, and great food. I just love how the town is colored mustard yellow. Great for taking pictures. I highly recommend Villa Buenaflor.

Quiet peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

I went to this property for a spiritual retreat, and this property couldn't have been better for peace and quiet. It's a charming, secluded, private compound. Perfect for those who want to enjoy the peaceful surroundings of the amazing yard complete with huge succulents, cacti, palm trees and world trees. An easy 7-10 minute walk to town, or easy cab ride if you don't want to walk. It is wonderful to have separate casitas for extended family, so everyone can have some privacy. The house has everything you need to unplug from your fast paced life. Wi-if is great, so if you choose you can watch movies using lap top. The pool off the veranda is great with jets strong enough to give your neck a good massage. The separate outdoor palapa is ideal for morning yoga, outdoor massage, or meditation. Loved close proximity to multiple ancient ruins sites, cenotes, Merida, and downtown Izamal is full of shops and vendors to explore. Owner gave us info on local ruins sites, assisted with getting private chef and masseuse for house calls. An amazing property for an incredible price..I can't wait to go back.

House can use several small improvements to become more liveable.

  • 2 of 5

We enjoyed the stay, but that was due more to the family dynamics than to to the house. It is located in a relatively remote and scruffy part if Izamal. It needs better furniture, especially for the terrace, where one spends a lot of social time. The plastic chairs are uncomfortable and unattractive; the kitchen is underequipped, and the house has no amenities (no TV, radio or sound system); the bathrooms are rudimentary and do. Ot provide adequate privacy and the garden is scruffy and unkempt.

Greatest asset is Vicky, who was helpful and nice.

Bottom line: until the owners sink a few dollars on improvements, this is not a great house for a family vacation.

Owner's Response: Hi Roberto, Thank you for the feedback. Yes, Vicki indicated to us that you and your family were surprised that there was no TV, stereo, or microwave. Please take the time next time to carefully review the description of a house, including the pictures, so your expectations can be properly met, and unnecessary negative critiques can be avoided. We do not misrepresent what the house has and does not have. The furniture that we have for the house is displayed on the pictures, and the garden is as it appears on the pictures. We indicate on the description exactly what the house has, and a TV, sound system or microwave are not included. I am grateful that Vicki offered to loan you her microwave, when one of you was upset that a coffee got cold, and it had to be heated in a pot rather than a microwave. We have every kind of pot available, two sets of utensils, plenty of dishes, coffee mugs, glasses, full stove/oven, etc. Although we don't like the carcinogenic substances that are formed on certain foods by microwaves, we will purchase a microwave in the next couple months; different strokes for different folks. We think the place is gorgeous, and is ideal to get away from the hustle and bustle of today's world. If people have children that must have movies or tv shows, we have excellent wi-fi, and they can watch them on their labtops and/or tablets. We also have a gardener that comes weekly. We will however talk to Vicki and the gardener to see what we can do. Thank you again for your comments, and stay. Happy New Years!
