About Rafael Filip
Caty is a psychologist , I am civil enginner. We live in Cancun. Originally we built Sol y Luna as our second home. Our two kids are now studying overseas and Sol y Luna is too big for the two of us. We thus decided to make it a rental property.
Rafael Filip purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Rafael Filip chose Playa del Carmen
In 1987 Caty and I moved away from Mexico City after an earthquake damaged the apartment where we lived. While living in Cancun we had a chance to spend a night in our neighbor's cottage in Playa del Secreto. We fell in love with the beautil beach and decided to buy a lot and build our dream villa in this place.
What makes this Villa unique
Benefits of renting Sol y Luna : 1.- Great Location.- Within 25 minutes drive to the airport, Cancun and Playa del Carmen. 2.- Second best beach in the Riviera Maya .- 2 miles of pristine sandy beach, with no big hotels nearby. 3.- Full service villa.- You will be greeted by a trilingual concierge, availability of an international chef. You will be swimming in the ocean after half an hour drive from the Cancun airport 4.- On-site staff on call all day long.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Relaxing and beautiful!
We had a group of 15 (12-80 yrs old) and had a great vacation! The villa was just as described and to our expectations. It is secluded and in a protected area, so we didn't see many other people. Melanie was great to work with planning excursions/transportation and responded quickly when we had any problems. We even had to call for a doctor, but it was less than an hour by the time we contacted Melanie to the time the doctor was at the villa. Everything was taken care of quickly! We also elected to have Chef Ismael and his assistants cook all of our meals. Every meal was delicious and they made accommodations for us when necessary. We had one meal outside of the villa and most everyone ended up getting sick, so having home cooked meals is necessary! I would definitely recommend staying here!
Was fantastic very clean home.
The entire staff really friendly! The chef has great buffet style meal and cooks “anything you want”. They are also flexible with all the eating times to fit your needs. Price was really fair. They will bring receipts for everything they shopped for. We had 15 in our group everyone loved it. Would rent this property again!
The most awesome vacation that accommodated 17 family members; ages 5-80. Chef Ismael was bonus🥰�
A very large Villa with 7 bedrooms and 7 baths. A separate pool room; an outdoor swimming pool and beach front with volleyball net on premises!!!! Need I say more? Chef Ismael and staff were over the top accommodating and we just said, “ surprise us with menu”👍�. He never disappointed🤗�. Melanie set up anything we needed to do for yours, rides or just communicating. She was always available and gracious. We’d definitely recommend Villa Sol Y Luna!
The perfect location, villa, and staff!!
Truly, we were blown away by Villa Sol y Luna and it’s remarkable staff!!! It’s the perfect location, right on a private beach between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen. The manager, Melanie, patiently worked with me for months to plan this surprise 30th Birthday vacation for my husband. She seemed just as excited about everything as I did, which showed her passion to make guests happy. By the time we arrived, I felt as though she was a good friend I hadn’t seen in forever. The Villa comes with full services staff, who always kept the place in top shape. They were extremely friendly and essentially part of our family. One of the best things we did was hire Chef Ismael and his crew for a couple of dinners. I wish we would have hired him for every meal!! AMAZING food!!! We actually ended up canceling a couple excursions because we didn’t want to leave the villa. It was everything we needed for our beach vacation. While there was some seaweed that washed up (that time of year), Don Pedro was out every morning with his dog, Coco, cleaning it up. There is simply not one negative exerpeince from our stay at the villa. It was all perfect!!!
I thank you kindly for having stay in my property. The staf at Villa Sol y Luna and I want to express our sincere appreciation for choosing our villa and hope to see you back soon. All my blessing, Rafael Filip
I forgot about everything that stressed me.
Work can build an awful amount of stress. My job isn't exempt from that. I forgot ALL my stress, though, when I stayed at the Villa. The staff was warm and the pool was cool. It has a private beach and hammocks that served me well for hours. If you wish to really get away and unplug from the daily grind, stay at the Villa Sol y Luna. You won't regret. And, you'll start planning the return.
The pictures don't do it justice! Just Amazing!
A friends group of 20 of us had a great experience over Labor Day weekend. The main house had enough space for all of us, and we never felt the need to use the secondary house (even though we reserved it just to be safe). Chef Ismael and his team outdid themselves every meal, and the house manager Melanie was very helpful in coordinating our arrival and departure transportation, and even a last minute group trip to nearby cenotes. Our group is already trying to figure out when we can go back.
