  • 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."

  • Even better than the pictures

    "I searched long and hard for a nice place to take my family in Tulum. We're a family of six with four kids (23, 21, 18, and 15 - girl, boy, girl, boy). We flew into Cancun from Maryland and rented a van and drove to Tulum. We stopped off along the way in Playa de Carmen for a late lunch and some high energy fun. We arrived as it was getting dark so we were a bit worried about finding it. Luis, the building supervisor, met us at the gate to let us in. (Let me also mention that Luis is AWESOME. He is friendly, attentive and responsive to any needs, and has a great attitude. He kept our beach clean and clear of any seaweed, moved our cushions back and forth to the waterfront palapas, and always has a smile. And why wouldn't he? He works in Paradise. The owner, Luu, is awesome as well. She is truly vested in our family's best interest and aims to please - but again, this place does most of the work by itself) Our girls had their own KING size bed EACH in their own room w their own bathroom, the boys had their own bed (one was a double bed, the other a single) and their own bathroom, and my wife and I took the back bedroom, queen bed, with its own bathroom. The setup was perfect. The living area was huge and enjoyed every day and night. We made breakfast every morning. There is a store about 8 minutes away by car and it is a Mexican Super WalMart w/ EVERYTHING you could possibly need. (you can't buy beer until after 9 AM. Lol. My bad on that one. And btw, a 12 pack of Corona was $5! Also: bring Mexican pesos instead of US dollars - they go farther). Renting a van was A LOT easier than I anticipated. It made us very portable. Every day was a different adventure: many cenotes to explore (you HAVE to see and experience them!), Tulum ruins, natural parks, fishing trips, snorkeling, the WORKS. I have two Vegans in the family and there were TWO outstanding vegan restaurants within walking distance from the place: "Restaurau" and "Charlie's Vegan Tacos". And Charlie is a super cool dude. Each meal we had was a good as the next and there are SO many to choose from. There is a brick oven pizza place about 150 steps away (where my kids hit three different times late!). The concrete deck is about 45 steps to the water. Palapas and beach recliners are for US and us only to use. There is a beachfront bar next door! And boy do the stars fill the night sky. Amazing. Man, this was fun to write as I revisited Tulum and our awesome vacation."

  • Casa Canciones - Perfection!

    "This property is PERFECT for an amazing, relaxing vacation. The owners are very nice and prompt in responding to any needs and the on-site caretaker is so hard working and friendly. The upstairs and downstairs units are identical, cozy studio apartment-like spaces with great air conditioning. Views just cannot be beat. I highly recommend Casa Canciones to adult travelers looking to get away!"

  • Perfect spot for our family

    "We stayed at the condo March 30 - April 7, 2016. We are a family of 5 with 3 boys 9 and under. This was our first time renting through VRBO and our first time travelling to Mexico. We had a fabulous time - and would recommend it to everyone. Owners - Peggy was super helpful with answers to our questions before we booked and with maps and lots of information after we booked. While we were there, they were doing some work on the septic system in an adjacent building - Peggy was right on top of it, notifying us that it was going on and asked us to let her know if it interfered with our vacation (which it didn't). Condo amenities - the condo itself was well equipped with everything we needed - basic spices for cooking, along with pots, pans, dishes, bottled water, etc.; beach towels and shower towels; wifi; bedding (although we brought a small blow-up mattress for our youngest child, so he could sleep in the same room as his brothers, rather than on the couch), etc.. The pools were lots of fun and my boys spent at least some of every day in them. For the most part, we had the pools to ourselves, which was also very nice. The grounds are kept very neat and tidy and everyone was friendly and helpful. Location - close enough to the amenities in Akumal (grocery, dive shop, souvenirs, etc.), but far enough away that we didn't have to deal with the crowds of people coming in to see the turtles (unless we were going to see them ourselves - but go early or late in the day ... a lot less people). Plus, able to walk 2 minutes to Yal-Ku for snorkelling (a huge highlight!!). Also easy driving distance to Aktun Chen (kids LOVED the zip lining, cave walk and cenote); Coba and Tulum; Xel-Ha (although we didn't go - too much other stuff to see and do). Finally, I can't talk about the location, without mentioning the snorkeling right outside your door. Fantastic! My kids were new to snorkeling, but had no problems exploring the reefs in Half Moon Bay. Not as many fish as Yal-Ku, but lots of very interesting coral formations and other see creatures. The rocky shore is also lots of fun to explore. Overall, we had a fantastic time and would not hesitate in coming back!!"
