    "Our family, , group was twelve adults two of which were teenagers , and one toddler, normally when we vacation in mexico we stay at all inclusive resorts this time we decided to stay in a home, this turned out to be one of the best vacation decisions ever made. when we arrived, we were greeted by Udi the property owner and his staff, Udi had prepared a wonderful pitcher of margaritas and Philomena had made amazing guacamole. we all began to get acquainted with the house and property everything was perfect, no complaints, everything was clean, the beds were very comfortable, the layout of the villa is very organized and works for everyone, the views from every window are breathtaking! We were fortunate to be there during the nesting and hatching of sea turtles an experience our whole family is still talking about and will never forget! our teenagers and the rest of us enjoyed the kayaks and, Early morning walks on the beach, late evening walks along the beach whether we were all together as a group or just taking time alone, it was a very relaxing and thought provoking experience. It was also wonderful coming into the home everyday to Philomena's guacomole and pico de gallo also finding that every need we possibly had was taken care of by jorge' and xavier, we hardly ever saw them but somehow they kept everything perfect. Our concierge Ali, was so nice and accomodating he answered every phone call i made to his phone no matter the time and accomodated our every wish, he arranged for a deep sea fishing trip that was awesome! We had three dinners and two breakfasts prepared by chef and his crew, everything was delicious, we also had special requests for dishes he had no problem making and they were great. I can't say enough about the staff, chef and, the property everything and everyone exceeded our expectations, if you are contemplating choosing this property for a vacation, our family would all agree you won't be disappointed. Best part of the trip, our family being together in this magical place. Worst part of the trip, having to go to sleep."

  • Would visit again!

    "In the past few times our family went to Akumal, we stayed at Las Casitas but couldn't book a unit this time. We picked Casa Solymar based on the reviews - it looked classy and had three bedrooms and was walking distance to the main beach. The villa was a little set back from the road and had a lush garden. It was spacious with a great view, and everything was clean. The kitchen was well stocked and even had some oil and spices. The pool was a lot bigger than we thought, a great size for our family. We swam in it a few times a day. It was clean and not over-chlorinated. The villa provided an electric cart which was helpful when we made several trips to the grocery store or decided to go to Yal-ku which was a long walk away. We didn't think it was such a plus point when making our reservation, but it was really a nice convenience. The bedrooms upstairs were a little warm in late March. My bedroom had a faulty AC unit and never cooled down. When I contacted the manager, Monica Estrada, she sent someone to look at it right away, and the AC was replaced that very day. Monica was very helpful. Due to passport issues, I had to arrive two days later than my family and she arranged additional airport transfer. Every time I emailed her, I received a reply right away. Please be aware that the wifi connection doesn't reach the upstairs bedrooms. The beach is very rocky so you can't go swimming there. The view, though, is spectacular. On very windy days, the salt spray can get 100 ft right up to the windows. When we stayed at Las Casitas in the past, we used to tip the housekeeper every day whatever we liked. Here at Casa Solymar, the guest book said to tip the housekeeper and gardener 15% of the cost of the rental. We also felt that being asked to tip the gardener is quite unusual. Shouldn't the maintenance of the pool and garden be factored into the cost of the rental? The villa management should have asked for the rental + 15% upfront instead. The tipping request and amount felt like a hidden fee. Tipping should be optional. We did tip the staff because we wanted to, but didn't tip the 15% and felt guilty that they might not have been paid their fair share. But paying them is the responsibility of the management, not the guests. All said and done, Casa Solymar is a solid five stars and I would go back for a visit. Thank you, Monica, for making our stay a lovely one."

  • Casa La Via

    "We had expected a group of seven(ended up with only 5 - lots of extra space)so we needed a big house and at 3400 square feet with 4br/4baths, Casa La Via did not disappoint. The house and pool are top notch with granite everything and top grade appliances(including a much appreciated laundry room) The area is very quiet and the cleaning staff, groundskeeper and private security guard were as good as they get. We are a group of cave divers and the two car garage was perfect for drying our extensive equipment at the end of each day. The Yucatán Peninsula has some of the finest underwater caves in the world and I have been down here once or twice a year since 1995. This house ranked among the best places I have stayed. There were two minor disappointments. We had expected a nice beach. The Sirenis Resort does have a fine beach, but we would have had to pay extra. The beach we did have access to was subpar. Also, there is a beautiful little lagoon which is a nice snorkel. Unfortunately, getting to it required a ten minute walk each way across very difficult iron shore. Still, the other amenities made up for these minor points and we would not hesitate to return to Casa La Via. Date of arrival Nov 1,2016"

  • Condo was beautiful, comfortable, well euipped. WiFi spotty, found the hot spots.

    "Maid service unexpected bonus. Living room tv small. Beach in front of condo has rocky entrance into ocean. Snorkeling sights marginal in Halfmoon Bay. Best snorkeling on reefs by Tulum ruins. We loved the serenity of Halfmoon Bay. Playa Blanca 8 was perfection for our stay."
