  • Great value for what you get

    "Ocean front at a reasonable cost. Nice place, cleaned everyday, changed towels etc. Chairs placed out at the beach each morning. Grounds are kept up nicely and staff was pleasant and helpful. Swan in the bay literally by ourselves all week. Most visitors visit Akumal Bay with tour groups to snorkel. That area is very busy, beautiful, but busy. Half Moon Bay was majestic. Yes it was rocky, just wear water socks and you are fine, Pictures show exactly what the views are and they are spectacular. Quiet place. Equipped kitchen, we stopped in Playa at Walmart to stock up and visited local grocery when we ran out of items. An easy drive to Tulum, Coba and a bit longer to Chichen Itza, but worth it. Walk to Yal Ku Lagoon. Turtle Bay Bakery has great happy hour and flat bread pizza, near the dive shop in town. La Lunita was nice as it was just downstairs, although a bit pricey. There were a few bugs in the unit, but it's Mexico...and the beach. To be expected in my opinion. AC is only in the bedroom and at this time of the year it was pretty hot and humid. Nice breezes help out in the main living area. We spent our evenings out on the patio anyway or at a local spot for drinks. Not that big of a deal really but certainly worth noting. Owner was quick to respond to our request and follow up emails. Pay pal, no problem. We really had a lovely time here and would certainly recommend this unit. If you are looking for 5 star resort, this is not it. But it is quiet, clean, safe, friendly and has a view that is hard to beat. Great place for a couple or small family that just wants to chill out and relax. Exactly what we hoped for."

  • House rates a 8.75 ,beach 5.0 , location 6.0,

    "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."

  • 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."

  • We enjoy our staying

    "We have a great time there. Place is nice clean and well equipped. Place is in quiet part on the edge of the city, but just couple minutes by car or taxi from all restaurants and shops (you can also use bikes parked on patio, if you don't have a car). If you like fishes you should to try El Captain restaurant. We have some issue with lock, so we call number which gave us and they sent somebody to fix it i 5 min. I'm highly recommended this place"
