  • A classic beach house

    "Casa Del Mar is what I imagined when I think "Mexican beach house." Airy, white, with Mexican flourishes, this place absolutely charmed me. The upstairs balcony off the master bedroom overlooks the sea and is big enough to hang out, play cards, make memories, have a few drinks. Same for the back porch. This house is great for families or a gang of friends -- it practically invites memories. Beds are comfy, loved the pillows. Hot water was never an issue. Strong wifi. Lovely swimming pool. Walking distance to bars and restaurants. Can't wait to return!"

  • A glorious home base

    "All the good things people have said about Villa Mariposa are 100% true. All 3 bedrooms are beautiful, spacious & removed enough from the main area to make everybody feel they had their space. Being 'slightly padded' Canadians, we were concerned how we'd fare without air conditioning but it was fine. The ocean breeze graces every bedroom and the fans help too. You might want to bring earplugs as the jungle is not always quiet - lol. There are a few birds who are rehearsing to be alarm clocks and it made us snicker most mornings as they did their vocal warm ups. Luis & Nery are wonderful caretakers & their kids are polite and sweet. I wish we'd had Luis cook for us but we never quite got our act together. We love the friendly, quiet road where Villa Mariposa is situated and having security at the entrance just enhances how safe the area is. Strolling down to Blue Sky Pizza for a meal or exploring Casa Cenote were convenient treats. Our group ranged in age from 17 to 61. All of us love to get out and explore but I must say that the best days were spent at Villa Mariposa... the days when we'd wake up and leisurely have coffee on the patio, letting the sun and sea greet us. Eventually we'd grab our snorkel gear and swim out in search of another stunning adventure. We saw stingrays, eagle rays, hundreds of fish... we'd stay out watching for hours. Eventually we'd drag ourselves out of the water and flop into the hammocks under the palapa with a cold drink. Lunch, siesta, then more lazy beach time watching the sun go down. True peace. Thank you, Veronique & family, for sharing this magnificent gem with us."

  • Better than the photos

    "I stayed with my spouse and best friend the first week of August 2016. This place was so nice and what a view. The photos don't do it justice. The climate controlled air conditioning was perfect. Ceiling fans throughout. The beds were so comfortable. Other than food, we needed nothing else. The staff on site were absolutely wonderful. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone!"

  • 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."
