Overview

Tulum Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 air conditioned bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

Villa Tres Delfines is a beachfront villa located on the gorgeous sandy beach of Soliman Bay. Set in spacious, beautifully landscaped tropical gardens, this is the perfect get away with friends or family. Enjoy snorkelling and kayaking in the calm, protected, blue waters of the bay, take in the magnificent views of the Caribbean and the jungle from our roof decks, fly a kite, build a sand castle, walk the perfect crescent shaped beach, watch the pelicans overhead, the iguanas sunning on the rocks, or just relax in one of the hammocks. Nearby are spectacular Mayan ruins, cenotes (watery caves unique to the area), jungle adventures, scuba diving, and fishing, as well as restaurants and shopping in the quaint town of Tulum (about 10 minutes away). The villa includes daily maid service, satelite TV, Internet access, kayaks and an optional chef service.

Soliman Bay is a perfect crescent shaped bay, with a lovely sandy beach, calm protected waters, and fantastic coral reefs for snorkelling. The bay is a secure gated community of private homes, so you will have the beach to yourself.

Villa Tres Delfines has a spacious open-plan living, dining and kitchen area. In the living room is a flat-screen TV, with Sky TV, DVD player and VCR. There is also a music system, plenty of books, guidebooks and games. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, utensils, range/oven, fridge, micro etc.

On the main floor are 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. All bedrooms have sliding doors leading out to beachfront palapa patios. Upstairs is a huge master suite with a spacious 180 degree view of the bay. The suite leads out onto a deck with a palapa, outdoor seating area and hammock. Finally on the roof is an observation deck with a 360 degree view of ocean, beach, mangroves and the sunset.

Daily housekeeping is included in the rental. Optional chef service is available. Olivia (the cook) prepares delicious Mexican, Guatemalan and American food.

Two kayaks are provided with paddles and life jackets, including youth sizes. You can kayak out to protected reefs in the bay for great snorkelling, or snorkel from the beach. For the kids we also have sand toys, buckets and shovels.

Our resident iguana Spiky is usually sunning himself above the waterfall cascading into the pool. In the gardens nearby is an aviary. Our kids love to feed the birds.

Our new home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better time at Tres Delfines. The home and property is everything it is advertised to be. Setting up the rental could not have been easier, due to Arul's speedy email responses and packets of arrival information. This was our first time staying in Solimon Bay, but last year we rented a property in Tankah Bay. We chose to rent a car this year since we were further away from the Manati Divers dive shop in Tankah Bay. We dive with Miguel, who can take you to any dive site you request in the area. The cenote dives were the highlight of that experience.

The road getting in and out of Solimon Bay is gravel and filled with pot holes, but it adds to the rustic and uncommercialized setting. Upon arrival, Cristobal greeted us to help us with our bags. He made sure we were set up in the house before continuing with his other tasks. There was a nice size welcome basket of food upon our arrival, so if you can't get groceries on the day of your arrival you won't go hungry. Our housekeeper Silvia took care of the inside of the house everyday. We hired her to cook for 4 of our 7 nights. It was fun taking her to the grocery store and markets to collect all of the ingredients for the week. We set the menu on the first day, then eventually came up with a plan of which days to have her stay and cook dinner. Silvia (and Crostibal) do not speak English, so be prepared with a translator app or dust off your high school Spanish. If she stays to cook for you, then understand that she is inside the house from her morning arrival time until the end of dinner. We welcomed her presence and enjoyed practicing our Spanish throughout the day.

We loved the pool and waterfall, we even brought floaties to lounge on. Having the kayaks was fantastic. Head out to the white buoy, hop out and snorkel back to the house. The closer you are to the buoy the better snorkeling you will see. Make sure to bring your water shoes to enter the water, as its rocky at the entry points. We spent the majority of the afternoons drinking rum punch and claiming a hammock. The many outside seating areas was the main reason we chose this property. The styling inside the house is not the best, but it adds character to the visit.

We can not wait to come back to this property!! Thank you so much Arul!

Villa Tres Delfinas, a sweet spot in paradice.

  • 5 of 5

My family gathered at Villa Tres Delfinas in May, 2016. The grounds were thoughtfully landscaped with beautiful tropical plants that complimented the pool and the home. The location could not be beat as the area is private, secluded and right on the beach. Arul is correct in saying the best snorkeling in the area is right off the beach. The water, the palms and the beach reminds me of a corona beer commercial. Cristobal and Silvia were a great help. Cristobal cracked coconuts for the milk my wife so desired and Silvia prepared wonderful meals for us.

We had a perfect mix of lounging at the house or touring the ruins and cenotes, but to tell the truth, we chose to hang at the villa most of the time. The beds were comfortable, the open floor plan was perfect for a large group and the view off the palapa covered deck area was to die for. The restaurant at the hotel up the beach served great food with a great view. The restaurant down and on the beach was recommended by a friend, but was not that great.

Arul and his staff did a great job communicating with us and taking care of out every need.

We can't wait to get back.

Perfect for a large family

  • 4 of 5

Tres Delfines was even more impressive than the photos - lush gardens, pristine pool, expansive beach, meticulously clean home, hammocks everywhere. The kids and grandkids spent hours in the pool. The home was spacious and accommodating, many places to gather together, and many private nooks and crannies. The entire family thoroughly enjoyed their stay in this little corner of paradise.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I'm writing to share an exceptional experience we had working with the owner of this property. We were unable to take our much anticipated family vacation because my daughter was in the first trimester of her pregnancy at the same time as the Zika warnings came out. Arul was most understanding and gracious and made what was a disappointing turn of events easier to handle. Arul followed the guidelines of the airline refunds in this very special situation, gave us a full refund and invited us to return at what would be a better time for us. We want to thank Arul for his professionalism and look forward to visiting his property in Tulum in the future!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Everything was amazing!! The food, the house, the grounds, and the beach. The pool was a little chilly, but it didn't bother anyone in my group because we spent most of the time at the beach. Had the weather been warmer, it would have been very refreshing, so its definitely not a bad thing! I would suggest to anyone to have Olivia or Silvia just cook all your dinners. Very worth it!! Every single morning the beach is cleaned and raked to make it beautiful. There isn't a bad bedroom. They all (except the one with the twin beds) walk out to the beach. We took the room with the queen sized bed that didn't have its own bathroom, and I had the best view of the sunrise out of any of the rooms. You must rent a car. Do not depend on taxis. If you walk down the beach to the right, there is a shack that serves lunch. They cook up the fish caught fresh that day. It's right on the beach and the fish is very good. The shrimp was greasy but good. Also pay close attention to your bill. I think we got charged way too much. I know we would stay here again if we ever go back to Tulum!!!

Best House on Soliman Bay!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Tulum for a wedding - and our family and friends rented several of the houses on Soliman Bay - so I can say without a doubt, Tres Delfines is THE BEST place to stay on Soliman Bay!

1. It's the perfect beach house: atmosphere, location, decor, but with modern accommodations as well (AC in the bedrooms was a God send!)

2. Olivia and Cristobal are simply the sweetest, most hardworking humans on the planet. Olivia is an amazing cook, and very attentive - it's like having your very own Abuela while you visit Tulum ;)

3. Very clean - you can tell Olivia and Cristobal take pride in this house and it's grounds. It stays spotless!

4. Our family and friends would stop by and spend a lot of time with us as Tres Delfines - it's just such a welcoming place. The porch facing the bay is perfect for gathering at night and the pool is amazing - the location of it is perfect, lots of privacy and Spike the Iguana was very social. We enjoyed his daily company.

5. The owner Arul was very responsive to my 20 emails prior to our trip :) He even stopped in one day to check on us (sorry to have missed you Arul!)

In hindsight - we wish we would have rented a car from the CUN airport - as the town of Tulum is 15 min away from Soliman Bay and the taxi's in the area A. aren't readily available B. aren't cheap!

We had a WONDERFUL time in Tulum. We will miss the Villa, Olivia and Cristobal and the beautiful bay. If we are ever back in this part of the world, we will definitely be looking up Arul and Villa Tres Delfines!
