|Minimum Stay||5 - 7 nights|
Enjoy a unique, beachfront luxury villa vacation on Cancun's best beach in the hotel zone! The only thing closer to the water is the fish! Only 10 minutes from Cancun's airport, let your vacation begin in this quaint boutique condo community for the true feel of Mexico.
My well-maintained villa has the feel of a beach home but also includes hotel amenities. The resort property has 2 pools including a shallow pool for children, a restaurant, a pool and a beach bar and a palm tree garden. Unlike staying in a high rise with long hallways, a villa vacation offers you space and privacy. Be “exclusive,” not” inclusive!” Easy access to Cancun’s premier restaurants and attractions via buses running every few minutes. I also offer an optional Meal Plan including breakfast and lunch. Excursion desk available to book tours to the Mayan Riveria’s famous ruins, snorkel and eco parks. For a memorable, one-of-a-kind vacation to relax or explore, feel 'at home' in my home!

Hi, my name is Terri and I would be happy to speak with you in person to answer any questions you have about villa or beautiful Cancun. Please call me.
Terri purchased this villa in 1998
The weather and the water of Cancun are the best in the world.
We love the Solymar because our 3 level Villa is right on the beach in the hotel zone. We can relax in total solitude or take advantage of the nightlife- restaurants, and clubs and shopping malls located in the hotel zone! We enjoy being able to eat breakfast and lunch in our villa while viewing the water and enjoy fine dining and entertainment at night at one of the fantastic restaurants in Cancun at night. It is the perfect vacation spot!
We loved our stay in Villa 8 the week of Christmas. Where do I begin? The view that almost assaults you as you walk into the living room soothed and enthralled the entire week. Patio w/4 loungers and a table was a nice extension of living room. The space...so important w/an extended family that ranged from 2 to 65...helped to allow for plenty of togetherness and yet privacy. It was nice that there were sand toys for kids. They enjoyed the pools as well as ocean. Skip the hotel buffet...food mediocre at best. Although we slept in the penthouse, we didn't use upstairs kitchen AT ALL so can't comment on frig and we never tried to bake in oven in lower kitchen. Blender works great for margaritas and toaster oven also deployed as well as stove top. Erika is fab and very accommodating. Watch the steps inside...they can be tricky. Highly recommended! We went to Xcaret...overpriced theme park, but in our case, a better option than an archeological site when you have small children. Really, we didn't want to leave our location at Villa 8!
Very clean, nicely decorated Villa right on the Beach. Sit back on the large terrace or balcony and hear the ocean waves.Definitely recommend to any couple or group. The owner Terri is very nice and we recommend Erica for the meal plan . The wife and I will were very comfortable staying at Terri 's Villa. You can't beat the price. The ocean view is like a postcard!!
Our group of 14 arrived in Cancun for our week of fun and relaxation. It turned out perfectly. 8 of us stayed in Villa #8.
This place has everything you need. 2 sitting areas, 4 Bedrooms and 4 bathrooms.
Direct access to the beach is great along with 2 private terraces for those that don't want to deal with the sand.
Terri has a great support staff in Cancun and they take care of any concerns promptly. Her manager took care of slight AC issue ASAP.That issue is all that we had during our stay.
However Terri's ace in the hole is her maid/housekeeper....Erika....she is just a joy.....She is just as sweet as she can be....Also a great cook....please take advantage of the Meal plan offered....it is well worth it.....Erika took care of our entire group of 14 for breakfast and lunch.
Our entire group can't wait to go back....a great time at a great place.
I hate to be so different from the other reviews but I feel I need to let folks hear the downsides of this unit.
First, there is no oven in the upper unit. There is a stovetop and a one slice toaster oven/coffemaker we pulled out from under the counter. We, along with help from sweet Erica, were never able to get the oven working in the lower unit so baking was out of the question.
Next, the refrigerator in the upper unit made a horrible roaring noise and would not keep our food cold. We finally had a handyman come in and look at but the response was to unplug it and let it defrost. I used a hairdryer to melt the layers of ice which helped the freezer but did nothing to keep our food cold in the lower part. The noise coming from it was over the top and intolerable.
Third, there was no wifi in the upper two floors. We found the router and line in the upper unit but traced the line downstairs where we found it dangling loose with no place to connect it. If you wanted wifi, you had to stand in the master bedroom on the first floor as close to the router as possible.
Last and most importantly, the red flags were up and down the entire beach the ten days we were there. My son came in the first day, completely disappointed after the lifeguard told him he could not get in the water, not even his feet. This went on all week. Our kids would walk down to the right where they saw other kids getting in but were eventually called out. The last day they went to the left where a bunch of people were let in on a sandbar. Again, they were called out because they didn't have the wrist bands belonging to the place next door. Mexico beaches are public beaches but we were not in our own country and had no leg to stand on. I don't put the owner at fault over this item but did want folks to know.
There really needs to be a contact at the resident for emergencies. It should not take several days to get in touch with the owner only to hear she was on a trip and had no email. Yeah, well so are we and it was not going so well. I really don't see how these units could be rented separately unless folks knew what they were getting.
On a personal note, as if this is not all personal, this was a trip to help my sister and I get over the recent loss of our mother. It had been three years of sickness and sadness I wish never to repeat. It meant a lot to us. I apologize of the long review but it was an honest one.
"Las Cinco Hermanas" visited the lovely Villa Number 8 the third week of a frigid northern January to celebrate a birthday. Cancun, the weather, the water, the location, the villa, and Erika, (doubling as cook and maid), made this a birthday celebration to remember.
The most striking and important benefit is the location and the view. The Villa is RIGHT ON THE BEACH, just a few steps from the shoreline. There was no need to go down to the beach and hustle for the shade of the limited palapas. Terri has a marquee that offers shade for the padded lounge chairs. This is where we spent our afternoons, listening to the sounds of the sea, marveling at the ever changing colors of sky, reading, talking and relaxing.
Our mornings started with view of the sunrise - always different - always
miraculous, along with coffee ready to brew, set up by Erika the night before.
Between breakfast and lunch, while Erika cleaned the Villa and prepared our lunch, we either hung out on the terrace or gathered by the pools, which are between the villas and the condos, just out the entry door and up a few stairs.
Erika's lunches were delicious and served outside at the table on the terrace. Memorable main courses were spaghetti with poblano crema and breaded, fried chicken breasts, poblanos stuffed with beef, beef fajitas, rolled chicken stuffed with cheese in Erika's wonderful poblano cream sauce and fish tacos
Erika added to the relaxing week immensely. She is just a sweet heart and added to our enjoyment of our stay just by her presence and her cheerful "Buenas dias" each morning.
We were lucky to also be able to view the moon rise some evenings from the terraces. But our evenings and rainy times were mainly enjoyed in the living area downstairs. The decor is welcoming and eclectic. Of special note is a whole wall of various mask on display. Your eye was always drawn to them. Various ceramic animals in strategic places added to the ambience as well.
The resort is gated and has unobtrusive security guards. It is well established and extremely clean. It is located a short drive to the airport and a bus ride to many wonderful restaurants.
Come on down and relax at Terri's wonderful Solymar Villa 8! You'll get the rest and relaxation you need and an up close and personal experience of the Caribbean Sea. Highly recommend you engage Erika to cook for you. It will add an extra dimension to your Cancun experience.
We will be back. Your home was awesome and fit our family well. We traveled with a total of 10 people. What a fantastic location, the view, the beach everything was great. Erika was awesome, fantastic, sweet, and so much more. We wish we could bring her home with us. The meals were fantastic . We are truly looking at dates when we can return. Met some of your great neighbors which were very welcoming. I was a little worried about taking our family out of the U.S. however not one time did we feel unsafe. Everyone we met was very friendly. All the information you provided was very helpful and without that info it sure would have been stressful. The USA transfer service was terrific. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your home. Everyone thought this was the best vacation. Very relaxing. Next time we will venture to XEL HA
