Comfortable and stylish

We stayed at this condo for 13 nights over Christmas and New Year, and we liked it very much. Yes, the house is very clean and beautiful, very well equipped with everything that you could ever need - not only kitchen stuff, but also books, movies etc. It was great to have the beach towels in the house, so that we did not have to drag our own towels to the other side of the world. Also, a very special extra, as we met Ron and Catherine shortly on most of the days, we were always able to ask for any advice that we needed, and we got all the answers! :))
I would say that the house looks even better in real life than it does on the photos. That is especially true about the pool area, that was a really pleasant surprise!
From the location of the house you can easily walk to many restaurants, and you can also come back walking or by taxi. There are many taxis in Tulum, we never had a problem with finding one, not even on New Year's Eve.
During our trip we visited Tulum ruins, the famous Chichen Itza and also Coba with its ruins and three cenotes, the towns of Valladolid and Playa del Carmen, the Grand Cenote near Tulum etc. Chichen Itza counts as a separate day-trip, and so does Coba, if you visit both the ruins and the cenotes (definitely worth it). We also spent a whole day in Valladolid, visited the market, the convent, the Zaci cenote etc.
Of the Tulum beach clubs, we liked Ana y Jose, OM and Ziggy Beach most of all. For food, we liked La Vita e Bella, Mateo's and El Tabano on the beach road, but also several restaurants and taquerias in the town. El Camello and Los Aguachiles are very near to the house and absolutely great, if you like simple, cheap and fresh fish and seafood. Altamar and Infinyto were good, a little further off. A very simple place called Diaz Taqueria on the main street was also super, great tacos for very little money.
