I hesitated to post this because I selfishly wanted to keep this wonderful house and Isla Blanca as much of a secret as I can but I told Karina I would write a review so here we go.
Our party of 12 (ages 6-72) stayed for 5 nights and I wish it were 10. We had the most amazing time during our visit. The house is far enough away from the city that you won't see many if any people on the beach the whole time you're there. We felt as if we were on our own private beach. The surf was pretty rough during our stay so we didn't take advantage of the kayaks but we did boogey board and swim.
If you get a chance take a walk down the beach to the right of the house and about a quarter mile up there is a restaraunt that serves the best ceviche I've had along with fried fish fillets and cold beer. So good!! I think it's called Captain Morgans.
The other reviewers were correct, the house is even better than the photos show. We really enjoyed the palapas with the hammocks both close to the house by the pool and on the bridge over the beach. What a nice way to relax!
We did have a couple run ins with scorpions both inside and out early on during our stay but we're used to them in Texas so it wasn't much of an issue for us. Roberto was great and sprayed insect repellent and we didn't have any more issues.
I can't say enough good things about Karina. She was the best host, arranging everything from airport transfers, to the chef we had come out 3 nights, to mailing back a phone to us that was lost in the sofa!!! Roberto and his family were also top notch and took such good care of us while we were there.
Thank you so much for your hospitality and we hope to return very soon!!
I was so pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the villa and it was even more beautiful then it appears in the photos! My family spent a week at the villa (7 of us, ages 60-21) and we couldn't believe how fast the week flew by! Karina, the house manager, arranged a chef, driver, and excursion company for us and everything worked out perfectly. She made sure to organize everything before we arrived and even stocked the fridge and bar for us. She was a beyond helpful resource who quickly answered any questions I had and helped us make some many amazing plans to celebrate a very special birthday in the group! She even arranged for masseuses to come to the house one day (they were great! and very affordable!) and for a company to drop off some stand-up paddle boards. For entertainment, the house has 2 smart TVs, wi-fi, a ping-pong table and a few beach chairs and kayaks. Needless to say, we never got bored! Both the cooking staff and cleaning staff were wonderful as well! Everyone was so nice! While we were a little worried about being away from all of the resorts, we felt so safe at the house (with multiple gates, guard dogs, and security) and we really enjoyed how relaxing it was to be away from all of the city's hustle & bustle. If you plan to go out in Cancun or Isla Mujeres often, it might be a bit of a trek, but we only left the house twice so we were perfectly fine with driving roughly 40 minutes to get into the cities. We hope to return soon!!
We were a group of 8 guys in our 20s on a bachelor party. The house was stunning, just as described. It is remote, around 50 minutes' drive from the airport, but it is beautifully quiet. All you hear is the wind and the waves, and at night the stars are beautiful. Karina, the house concierge, is a wonderful resource. She organized a chef and car service for us while we were there. The chef was excellent. So we got the best of both worlds - driving into Cancun at night, relaxing in the impeccable surroundings by day. The on-site staff are friendly and helpful. Couldn't recommend more highly.
we were a family of 14, 8 adults, 6 very young kids.
first the good stuff and this review is overwhelmingly positive. the house is amazing. very much as shown. the pictures are extremely accurate. the location is picturesque and fabulous. it is remote. you are 50 minutes from the airport and approximately 30 minutes from a supermarket. be prepared to bring groceries and cook or hire a chef. two of our kids are chefs and we were not planning to leave the house.
the pool is perfect. the staff was incredible. very hard working and always available. they cleaned after each meal and we were less than neat. all rooms are as shown. master BR is especially nice.
i highly recommend using their concierge. Karina was better than perfect. always helpful and our experience would not have been half as good without her. she could not have been better. if there was a concern it was addressed immediately. they truly want to be helpful and make your stay special. we felt very comfortable in the house. the property is gated and secure.
now a few of the negatives that you should be aware of. all the bedrooms are well air conditioned. the main part of the house including the kitchen is not. fortunately we were ok with that. there were some minor issues to deal with. nothing too important. the grill is charcoal or wood, not gas.
the bottom line is if you have a large family that want to enjoy time together, this place was exactly what we were looking for. parents, kids and grand kids coming form all over the U.S. we would definitely rent this house again.
It is hard to believe, but this property is even more beautiful than the pictures show. Everything is in pristine condition.
I was also pleasantly surprised by a few extra features (several hammock areas and a roof deck, to name a few).
The caretakers are very pleasant without being intrusive. Walkie Talkies are provided for easy communication.
Another perk was the built in water filtration system. Coming from the United States, I was concerned about the water situation. All the clean water and ice I wanted was filtered through the refrigerator.
The property also feels safe. There is a very large gate in front, along with fences around the property. Easy and direct access through a gate and onto the beach.
As this listing states, it is in a very private area. I recommend renting a car. Cabs are difficult to get to the property. However, the property owner was nice enough to coordinate a driver for outings throughout the trip.
Overall, it was a great experience. I highly recommend Villa Escape.
