The villa and staff on site was excellent. Location was amazing, the house was spectacular, and the service/food was great. Our biggest complaint would be the lack of coordination between Luxury Retreats and the Casa staff directly. It would have been better to book directly with the property. For example, we had rented a car (and told Luxury Retreats so), but the house staff sent a transfer for us anyway.
Lovely staff in an okay house in a beautiful spot. Only problem is the 12km dirt road leading to the house is in such poor shape that it takes 45 - 60 mins to transverse. So just gong into Tulum is a minimum of a 2 hour round trip.
The villa is stunning and the butler, chef, and house manager were outstanding.
Generally a very good villa.
THe location is second to none with the Caribbean sea on one side and the lagoons on the other. The staff at thew villa were very pleasant and helpful with nothing being too much trouble. The food - exquisite.
My only 'magic wand' request would be with regard to the mosquitoes. Because of the area there are a lot of mosquitoes, both day and night. The evenings in particular were of course active times and this made the outside areas pretty much unusable. Maybe there could be some netted areas on the outside balconies.
My final comment is that the pool whilst excellent and adequate for my families needs was somewhat smaller than I was expecting from the description.
