Perfect location and layout for our multiple families to get together to celebrate parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Villa, pool, beach and location were great for all- from ages 3 to 76, there were things for all of us to do. We had a wonderful stay despite a tropical storm. Elena and Pancho were great. We will be back again.

The woman that cleans does not know how to clean the tables inside the house and she would kill cockroaches and leave them where she killed them We had cockroaches in our 4 of the 5 bathrooms you need to spray more often

Reviewer Comments:

Villa Mar Caribe was perfect for our group of 11 adults. It never felt like we had too many, as there is plenty of room to spread out indoors and out. The Villa needs a little work, as one of the 2 powder rooms on level 1 was out of order while we were there. One a/c unit had to be repaired the first day and one a/c unit was really loud. The good thing is most of us only used the a/c on one night of our 7-night stay in late October. Some of the art hanging in the foyers could use a good dusting too. One thing we liked was that there was a wet bar with a large fridge to set up for cocktails, ice and beer. Some in our group moaned that there was no cable or satellite TV. I guess you could bring a Chromecast unit and stream shows from your laptop or iPad if you really needed to watch TV. The wifi is very good and there is a phone from which you can call the states at no charge. Also, there is a hi-fi unit you can hook your phone or iPad up to to play your dancing music. Bring your own cables, though. The location on Soliman Bay can't be beat. There is plenty of shade on the beach from the palms and palapas. The pool is perfect for rinsing the salt water off when you get done snorkeling amongst the turtles, rays and beautiful reef fish. We even saw an octopus out by the reef which you can swim to or take one of the kayaks to. Tie up to the bouy and your ready to drop in. The snorkeling is very good here. The reef has recovered greatly from the damage inflicted upon it by H. Wilma in 2005. Soliman Bay is the most perfect bay on the Riviera Maya. There are no big resorts and very few people. I guess in the winter there would be more, but that's why we always go to Mexico in October/November. Oh, and the management company was very good, very friendly. Way to go!

We stayed at Villa Mar Caribe for 10 nights in February with 7 adults and 4 children. The villa was more than big enough for us. The house, due to being a duplex previously, didn't have the flow of other villas, but made up for it in space. The main floor is completely connected but the 2nd floor is only connected by the balcony. The rooftop is a great place to grab the days last rays of sun or to look at the stars. The house itself was good, but had a few maintenance issues that we've advised the owners of. The grounds and location were perfection. Tons of loungers and seating around the pool and on the beach. We loved the seating area outside with comfy outdoor furniture and had a nightcap there every evening. The snorkelling was fantastic and we used the kayaks several times each day. Note, there are no snorkel masks, and only a few sets of large fins, but there are lots of lifejackets including 3 kids ones. I would recommend Soliman Bay to anyone and would likely stay at Mar Caribe again.

Reviewer Comments:

Our group of six stayed here last week. Part of the house was recently renovated. The furnishings were of poor quality, and the bedrooms and bathrooms had not be updated in many years. The fan in our room was not adjusted properly so it made loud noises. The pool was cloudy. This place could be great with more attention. Like making sure electric cords are not hanging off the side of the palapa, and the painting under the sinks is finished. The house is not horrible at all, it is just pricey for what it is. The beach and palapas were great. I think the owner needs to pay more attention to guests needs and comfort. The couches are very uncomfortable and make one not want to sit. The beds were good. The linens were stained and the towels were ratty.

The bay is excellent for snorkeling and a small private dive shop at Palapas Caribe offers offers ocean diving and private scuba classes. The location is also convenient to numerous day trip adventures along the coast like the Tulum and Coba Ruins.
