Wonderful week with family and friends at Laguna Encantada

  • 5 of 5

The house and property at Laguna Encantada were fantastic - matched or exceeded all expectations set by the pictures and description. The house itself is very large, well appointed, maintained, and designed, and had a beautiful pool surrounded by a well landscaped yard. We saw iguanas, a coatimundi, an agouti, and numerous bats on the property - all very cool. The access to the trails leading to the lagoon made for a unique feature and we enjoyed walking them at all hours of the day. The on site caretakers - Rosenburg and Maria Luz were definitely a high point as well - top quality service from breakfast and meal service through housekeeping and help with general directions and questions. I'd recommend this property without question. The one item I'd suggest would be to add stereo speakers inside the house, rather than only on the exterior patio as is currently the case. Other than that, everything was great, and we loved the location - five minutes to the Akumal Playa area.

Beautiful comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

The house was comfortable immediately upon entering it. There was AC throughout the entire home which in my eyes is a BIG plus. The pool is clean and a very nice size. The beds were extremely comfortable. Rosenberg and Luiz Maria were the sweetest caretakers you could ask for. Although their english is limited we had no problems conveying what we needed. In all honesty i got sick the 2nd night we were there. I caught a nasty cold and bronchitus through NO fault of the villa's at all. If I have the chance to do it all over again I will and I will stay at Laguna Encantada again.

Beautiful experience

  • 5 of 5

Pictures don't give justice to the house! Beautiful house, perfectly clean and well kept. Very close to Playa del Carmen and Tulum, which made the trip very fun. But I have to say the best thing of the house where the people that work there and take care of you. Rosenberg and Luz Maria went beyond every day to take care of us. They where very loving and special! And amazing cooks! They accommodated ever meal to our vegetarian diet. Laure the manager is a sweetheart as well. Very helpful and informative. Highly recommended vacation!!!

Seriously, the house is beautiful, great for kids, the lagoon is amazing, great snorkeling...but it was Rosenberg & Maria that made it one of our best ever vacations. They're just amazing people.

Experience Mexico in a Different Way

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to experience Mexico! This luxurious villa with its amazing staff really gave us the chance to enjoy our time in Mexico in a way that is very different from the resort experience. The place has wonderful decor and is in a gated community right on the Yal-ku lagoon. The couple who are the cook and housekeeper, Luz Maria and her husband Rosenberg are wonderfully sweet and attentive. While there were only the two of us on our honeymoon, we could see that the house would be wonderful for a big group. Our concierge, Mimi was also very helpful. It was just a great experience that we highly recommend.

Amazing week in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Everything from the location, to the house, amenities, staff, food was perfect. We were there with 2 families (although we could have comfortably fit 3) and everyone enjoyed it. The kids either snorkeled or were in the pool every day, while the adults lounged around, sipped margaritas by the pool. We took some great day excursions to local ruins and cenotes, which were both amazing, but every time we left the villa, we all agreed that we didn't need to go anywhere, the villa had it all. Luz Maria and Rosenberg (the caretakers) we amazing. The food they prepared was spectacular, and we enjoyed their company. There were always extremely helpful if we needed anything at all.
