This house is incredible, spacious, beautiful and comfortable. We kept saying that it would ruin us for any other vacation spots. It is MUCH more affordable than all-inclusive resorts and gives the privacy a hotel cannot offer. We also prefer renting homes here, so we can spend time on adventures in the area. We definitely want to return and are still dreaming of it. All floors are beautiful, polished stone (limestone?), with stone showers and granite countertops and it is impeccably clean. It's true that the photos don't do it justice. And as other reviews have said, the caretakers, Elda and Elder are kind and charming and so very helpful--and their cooking is excellent. They made our dinner 6 of the 8 nights and each was a delight and we really enjoyed chatting with them before and after the meals. They do maid service on the house every day but Sunday. The pool area is gorgeous, surrounded by palm trees and a constant and warm Caribbean breeze. My young children spent many hours in the pool and it was a welcome respite after long days adventuring to nearby ruins, cenotes and eco-parks. The rooftop terrace has an amazing view of the Caribbean and adjacent Solimon Bay. I recommend watching the sunrise from the roof--each was stunning. The Bay is great for swimming and the snorkeling is quite good--we saw sea turtles, lots of coral and fish. We highly recommend, the very close Cenote Manati (and many others in the area), the Mayan ruins in both Tulum and Coba, and our favorite eco-park, Xplor, will knock your socks off. They even let our 4 yr-old zipline and he loved it! Chichen Itza is about 2 hours away and is worth the trip if you are up for the drive. We also ate thin crust, wood-fire pizzas at the Blue Sky Restaurant, just down the road--it is excellent and the outdoor setting is lovely. I really don't have any complaints and will count the days until I can return.
