My family and I recently stayed at Villa de Paz. It was my wife, with my 18yr old daughter and her friend, my 15yr old son and his friend, and my 10 year old son. Upon arrival the house and grounds from the outside are beautiful, the location is right on the beach, that includes a nice pool on the beach, it is about 15 feet to the sea, although I do not recommend swimming right off the beach in front of the house it is a bit rocky, beach shoes necessary. Inside, the house is a bit older and in need of some upgrades but overall I give it a 7 out of 10, it is spacious and comfortable and we had plenty of room. We ate all of our meals outside on the patio by the pool. Carlos the caretaker is great and cleans the house and beach everyday, he understands very little English but we had no trouble communicating, he also gets you cabs when needed. He arranged for us to have a chef prepare us breakfast and dinner 5 out of the 8 days we where there, Honorio and Maddie prepared exquisite meals, did all the shopping, we gave them the money prior, we had lobster, fajitas, fresh, salsa, and guacamole everyday, desserts, flan, pastry, it was top notch. I tipped them at the end of the week, they also served and cleaned up after every meal. It is very safe, we did lock up every night but we never felt unsafe. It was sunny and 85 everyday, with a nice ocean breeze, each bedroom has air-conditioning, but one did break in the small bedroom so we just had my son move in with his brother, no big deal. Casa Cenote is a great restaurant 2 properties down, as well as Blue Sky, Casa Cenote has a dive shop, we used them to Scuba Dive the freshwater Cenote right behind the house, great for snorkeling as well, you can also swim and snorkel in the ocean right in front of Casa Cenote. Lots to do locally, if you want to travel some. Susie the owner is very responsive and answered any and all of my questions. The only thing that caught us off guard was the inability to flush TP because of the fragile septic system, although it was not as big of deal as we first thought it would be. Overall it was paradise, I highly recommend staying at Villa de Paz!! Thanks you Susie!!
