Fantastic views, all the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly like the photos....even better. We had an excellent month....even the weather cooperated! Marilyn and Bruce were very helpful with suggestions, answers to questions and generally nice people! We recommend Black Pearl to anyone looking for solitude, comfort, awesome views and sunshine!

beautiful house and great hosts but a bit remote

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful - especially the master bedroom and dining/living room - the views are stunning and the house is very nicely decorated. The kitchen is very modern and well equipped. We were a bit unlucky because the AC was not working and the second bedroom was a bit hot but Marilyn was very kind and gave us a fan which worked fine. The pool is very refreshing and there are great spaces in the garden to read and relax. If you like a secluded and quite place it is a great option. The only drawback is that the house is located 10 km away from Majahual and the road is terrible (so it takes about 30 minutes) so you are a bit isolated and this could be sometimes an issue if you run out of anything or if you just fancy going out for dinner.

Beautiful Home Very Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We spent about a week at The Black Pearl home and had an excellent time. As others have stated, the home is well furnished and the kitchen has everything you would need. The private beach is very nice (me and the kids napped under the palm trees every day). The air conditioner did not work the first few days that we were there but Bruce had a technician come out to get it fixed. The swimming pool was a huge hit with the kids. We would start our day with a morning swim and then head out to the ocean. Huacho is very friendly and knowledgeable and told us a lot about the area. If you have time, be sure to check out the Cenote Azul and the Lake in Bacalar as this is some of the prettiest water you will ever see. The highways in this part of Mexico are incredibly safe and well-maintained so try to get out and explore. Overall, our experience was incredible but there are a few things I would like to point out for my fellow travelers.

• Be sure to follow the directions that Marilyn sends before you arrive (the Google maps link that is on VRBO does not show the correct location).

• Be sure to accurately list the number of persons staying in the home. We realized after we booked that we had failed to list our two children (6 and 4) but since it said the rates were for four people, we did not worry about it. We had to forfeit $50 of our deposit as a result.

• The home is in a gated community and there is a night watchman that patrols but I never actually saw the gate closed.

• The air conditioning only runs from 6:00 pm to 11:00 pm. We were there in July and all of the rooms were uncomfortably warm again by midnight (rooms have oscillating fans that helped a little).

• The beach road to the home is in very poor condition at the moment. We had to drive very slowly in the rental car. It was frustrating but not a big deal if you don’t plan to go in to town every day.

Fantastic choice

  • 5 of 5

It would be hard to be disappointed with this villa.

We (family of 5 with older teens) loved the location on a gorgeous beach, the pool, the spacious terrace, the well stocked kitchen, the spacious sitting area (with cable tv) the great bathrooms.

It's about a 15 minute drive to Mahahual along a bumpy beach track, we were glad we had 4wd.

Bruce, who manages the villa lives next door was really helpful, respectful of our privacy but equally there when we needed him. Huacho the guide cooked the best meals of our trip, he took as to the cooperative to buy lobster and shrimp then cooked 2 really delicious suppers. We also went out on his boat snorkelling.

The only negative was that the road side bedroom was too warm to sleep in, but it was a very hot spell.

We were sad to leave The Black Pearl and highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review of The Black Pearl! Muchas Gracias!!!! It is such a pleasure meeting happy clients such as yourself.... We invite you to return and again enjoy the beautiful area of the Costa Maya and all it has to offer. We are aware of the challenges of living "off the grid". However, for the most part, they are very few. Safe and happy travels !!!!!

Best vacation I ever had!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks at the black pearl house and it was the best vacation of my life. The house is beautifully appointed and the owner is kind enough to leave anything you might need--from lots of towels to kitchen spices and ice cubes! (Of course you provide your own food.)

The snorkeling right off shore is fantastic-- starfish, all kinds of coral with beautiful fish swimming around.

We went in June when there were not many people renting homes and felt really comfortable that Bruce and Marilyn were next door.

Thank you for everything, Bruce, Marilyn, and Lisa!

Beautiful home in absolute paradise

  • 5 of 5

First off the pictures do not do this place justice. The home is beautiful and the view does not get any better than this. House was fully stocked with whatever you would need or want. Beds and linens were great as well. Managers were very nice and gave you your space if you wanted it, however, we loved their company and the visits from their sweet Weimaraner Lucy... Plenty of restaurants in town, however, not many shops at all are open unless there is a cruise ship in. We purposefully planned our trip when a ship was only there one day, so town was so peaceful... The home is in a gated area as well and we felt very safe. We will definitely return.
