JUST ON THE BEACH !!!
Two bungalows on ground floor of a luxury beach house.
-Bora: one bedroom and a futon for 2 adults and one child.
-Sirocco: two bedrooms for 5 guests.
It is an excellent choice for one couple or a small family.
On the soft coral sand, SOMBRAS DEL VIENTO highlights the bright colors and rich natural of its surrounding.It offers contemporary comfort with air conditionning in the interior that combines natural materials (marble, exotic wood, etc.),and a pool facing the beach.
The vast wooden terraces covered with palapa will allow you to enjoy the magnificent landscape that this bay has to offer.The housekeepers live in the onsite guesthouse and provide all the necessary services to make your vacation easy.
The bungalows have 5 kayaks, snorkel equipment and 4 lounges out by the beach palapa.
At first we were hesitant to come to Mexico because it was the beginning of hurricane season and the forecasts showed thunderstorms most days we were there. We were glad we decided to come anyway. Though there was some rain, we still had good weather.
Booking with Loic (the owner) was very easy and he was helpful with directions and other questions we had prior to arrival.
The beach house was exactly what we were looking for. The area is peaceful and we were 10 min from town. Since we were the only ones staying there at the time, we had 2 pools and the private beach to ourselves. The place has kayaks and snorkel equipment for the guests to use. Alessandra and Miguel who stay on the property, clean the unit, the pools and take care of the grounds. They were very friendly. And we loved Chile the dog.
We stayed in the Bora unit which was perfect for us. It had a nice well equipped kitchen which we used every day. We barely ate out at the restaurants since we just cooked there. Our unit had a nice porch that stepped right out to the pools. We had AC in our unit though with the sea breeze, we never needed it. We just had the ceiling fans on for air flow.
If you want to come to Mexico to enjoy the sun, beach, pool, relaxation but avoid crowded touristy areas, I highly recommend this place. The drive to Soliman Bay was so easy...just one highway all the way down.
Our stay was just paradisiac! The place is very calm and ideal to relax reading a book in a hamac 5 meters from a marvelous sea. The owners thought of everything to make our stay the most pleasant possible! Both flats are ingeniously designed to get the natural ventilation to make it more comfortable as it already is!
We enjoyed a lot the incredible nature and wildlife around, beautiful shells, fishes, corals from the Soliman bay that we could observe using the kayaks and snorkeling equipment at our disposition.
My nephew was happy to find a real and comfortable baby bed and some toys to play in the sand!
5 days were definitely not enough to explore all cenotes, natural park and archeological treasures surrounding the place! I would need to come back!
A big thank again to Beatrice and Loic, the owners for the warm welcome, and to the housekeepers for attention and help during our stay!
We've stayed there for 5 days and this place really was a great surprise. The appartments are spacious and very comfortable (we tried both sirroco and bora), and the owners had reserved a warm welcome for us and were really helpful to help us plan our stay and visits. Being right on the beach with also a swiming pool which has a small area with just 40cm depth was perfect for our little boy. You can also enjoy a tour in the lagoon for snorkelling by using the kayaks. Going for a grilled fish at the small restaurant at the south end of the bay is also a great thing to do. I would definitely go back soon if that was not such a long way from Europe!
Our family enjoyed our five days in Sombras Del Viento. We could not have been happier and your house made it possible. It is a dream house, with very tasteful and high quality furnished. Views from the terrace are spectacular, wildlife is amazing! The location directly in the middle of the bay just can’t be beat. I understand why you chose such a magnificent space to build your house that perfectly melts in the environment. We hope to have a chance to come back again it is so relaxing and there are so many things to do in the area.
Thanks a lot for providing all the Baby equipment, thanks for the basket of excellent fruits that you put in the house and many many thanks Beatrice and Loic for your warm welcome. It's been a pleasure.
Two couples in their 50"s shared Sirrocco, unit was beautiful inside and out, we spent most of our time either in the lounge chairs on the beach reading and sunning or on the wide porch looking at the pool, palms or beach playing cards, Weather was not as great as we would have liked but still very nice, the home was a convenient distance from Tulum or Akumal for dinners and day trips (need a car) and I would not hesitate to go back for another stay or recommend this home to friends.
Apologies for the delayed review but spare time is at a premium in our non-stop hectic life in the UK, a far cry from the lazy relaxed days spent at Sombras del Viento! After 10 days of travelling around the Yucatan I don't think we could have ended up anywhere better to finish off our Mexican holiday. The villa, gardens and beachfront are amazing and excellently maintained and even though we only stayed in the smallest apartment (Bora) we had the whole place to ourselves. Bora apartment is furnished and equipped to a very high standard and had everything we needed for our stay, although it was difficult to spend much time indoors with the lovely pool and beach literally on the doorstep. In the garden there are hammocks and shady palms plus all manor of equipment to make sure you're able to get out in the calm bay and enjoy the reef. Using the kayaks to get out to the best bits of reef further out in the bay (a bouy provides a mooring point) was great with a suprising number of fish, including a barracuda and rays, colourful corals, octopus and even a turtle seen during our mini-excursions. The pelicans provided much entertainment as they fished just off shore and there was good variety of birdlife all around the bay, especially pools at the northern end. It really was an excellent end to our holiday and 3 nights were not enough! Thanks to Loic for letting out a wonderful villa and providing us with all the pre-stay info we needed. Recommended to all friends and family when we returned home and if at all possible we'll be back! Cheers Steve and Lucy
Soliman Bay is one of the most beautiful bays of the Riviera Maya.
Bordered by a white sandy beach and very protected by the coral reef, it is an idyllic location to relax, swim, ride in a kayak, diving to admire the colorful fishesand turtles or simply relax in a hammock.
Within a limited radius, you can enjoy all the attractions offered by this beautifull region: archeological sites (Tulum, Coba, Chichen Itza...), golf, diving spots, preserved natural sites (Sian Ka'an), parks (Xcaret, Xel Ha...) etc.
