Best property for multiple families with everything you need and mire

  • 5 of 5

What a gem of a property. We had four families share this awesome beach house. We were taken care of from the start of our trip by preparing our food and drinks before we arrived and they made sure to provide us the best options for transportation etc. once we arrived we were greeted and amazed by the beautiful property. Well maintained and very clean. The kids loved the pool and beach that was very calm so they could go out 10 feet and still have water up to their waist. Clear water and every water sport available. We snorkeled, used the canoes and exercised with the long boards. Comfortably fit 8 adults and 7 kids. Perfect for four families. Chefs and house staff were amazing and they even cut coconuts from their trees for the kiddos to drink from. The only issue we had was the internet connection but they are in the process of using a new carrier.outdide of this we love this property and it’s our new family vacation home!

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup pour votre commentaire qui fera très plaisir à tous les membres du staff. Ils essayent toujours de satisfaire tous les désirs des locataires. Je suis très heureux également que la villa vous ait plu, même si vous avez eu, je crois, une météo un peu fraîche. J'espère que vous aurez l'envie de revenir.

Little slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We took our extended family of 10 adults and 6 kids (3-16) for a week over thanksgiving to this wonderful property nestled on the shore of Soliman Bay. We honestly couldn't have asked for a more perfect destination to spend our week together, everything from the location, to the facilities, to the staff was truly wonderful. (there are actually 3 separate units but you can book the whole property)

Laura (concierge) was always available, from way before we arrived to help sort out our general questions and food choices etc, and also to help us arrange transportation and give advice. She helped us sort out trips to Coba and a local Cenote, the Tulum ruins, shopping at the supermarket, and Xel-ha, though honestly there were those of us who would have been more than happy to simply remain on the property all day every day, basking in the glorious sunshine, or snorkeling out on the very calm reef, with the rays and turtles!

There were more than enough kayaks for everyone who wanted to get out on the bay, which as described in other reviews is simply fantastic, super safe for the kids and on part of the second largest coral reef in the world! There is a little outdoor fish place at one end of the bay, and a fancier bar/restaurant at the other end. Also a little shop for emergency needs (though it is expensive and honestly Rolando and/or Laura were always more than willing to pick stuff up for us)

The cooks provided the best Mexican food we'd ever had, even converting one party member who before the trip didn't really like it into someone who genuinely looked forward to every single meal. They also pulled together a special thanksgiving turkey for us at the last minute - and to say they catered to the whims of the children is a massive understatement.

Susie (the housekeeper) also did a fantastic job cleaning up after us all week, and even did some laundry for us when needed.

In all honesty the only downside that we experienced was with the mosquitos, around dusk each evening (4ish onwards) they descended, especially on the calmer days, and some of the children (and the adults with tasty blood) got a decent number of bites. So make sure to bring plenty of bug spray, and after bite!

Tulum Villa Escape

  • 5 of 5

Just rented the whole villa with my family...10 audlts, 5 children. One word: AWESOME! Villa on the beach, pool, beach chairs/towels, etc. The cooks (Rolando and Jorge) (yes, they do the dishes as well), housekeeper Susie (cleans, make beds, groundskeeper Ricardo & Laura the concierge is always nearyby to help with any requests....Great little bay for snorkeling, paddle boards, Kayaks, snorkel equipment etc. I could go on and on. And, your bedrooms are air-conditioned for a night of deep sleep so you can play hard the next day. You have Xel-ha, Cenote, Tulum ruins etc all nearby. No noise except the sound of the breeze. Balconies everywhere to draw you out... be it early morning for the sunrise or to eat/relax on. Also, one end of the bay, a little happy hour place to drink, have fish and on the other end, a high end restaurant/complete spa. We will definitely return. Our saddest day...the day we left.

Great house

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental was so perfect for a big extended family. It has three different sections so that people can have some privacy. The 16 of us could eat together at the same table and had the best Mexican food prepared for us by the chefs who were super friendly. The house is on the beach and has paddle boards, kayaks, and snorkeling gears that guests can use. It made the trip so fun and stress free. I would highly recommend this place!

Such an amazing stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is such an amazing place to do a group or family vacation. Located on my favorite calm bay, just a short walk or kayak from the most amazing beach ceviche shop, this house provides every possible amenity for a great vacation. The chefs were open to all requests and the staff was quick, discrete, and courteous. We went with a group of 11 and everyone had their own space and privacy while able to join in the many communal areas within the property. We really had the best stay and would go back again in the future.

Best family vacation ever! Such a beautiful home, but as we found, the relaxation was unsurpassed.

We rented both bottom floor units and all family members (our teenage son included) were immediately taken with the impressive architecture and of course the natural beauty of the caribbean. Our first trip into the yucatan, we researched for many months. Upon arrival, Sombras del Viento exceeded our expectations. Cleanliness, comfort and a warm reception was the opening to a fabulous stay in paradise. After a few days of touring Tulum, we decided it was best to just embrace our little slice of heaven and spend our days lounging poolside and seaside at the most lovely home we have ever had the pleasure of staying in.

This villas beauty is rivaled only by the white sand beach and calm ocean which it seamlessly spills into. I absolutely enjoyed every moment of my stay. The comfort and hospitality were amazing. I hope that one day I will be lucky enough to visit once again with my friends in Soliman bay at Sombras del Viento!!!
