My friends and me, we were 10 people, had a wonderfulm time in Playa del Carmen. The Villa is exactaly like on the pictures, the beach is wonderful and Martina did a very good job. Everything had been organized very well.
We will come once again! Thanks a lot
We loved every minute of our stay at casa el dorado.
We chose to holiday in Mexico to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary and we were a family bunch of 10 people ranging from 5 to 70.
The location couldn't be better- literally steps away from the beach- your own private one at that - complete with thatched beach umbrellas and sun beds and a ten minute walk through either a gated estate or along the beach to playa del Carmen.
The villa is huge- rooms enormous and kept spotlessly clean by the wonderful Aura.
We used Uxata chef services. Ana was incredible . Not only a gorgeous person but effortlessly served up the most divine breakfasts and dinners each day. Made catering for a family of 10 look easy! She might also have some rather famous clients...!
The beach directly around the villa was pretty quiet- and more a destination for the beautiful and cool than young families. Think thongs, morning and evening yoga sessions and ripped bodies doing amazing acrobats. We enjoyed beach walks most days and there are plenty of facilities for the more active (water sports etc) about 10 mins walk away.
The swimming pool was adored by the kids- it's not huge and a bit slippy round the edges.
We were pretty lazy and mostly hung out and relaxed around the villa but you aren't far from Xelha which we all loved and also Tulum.
The Thompson hotel roof top bar in playa is a must visit if you can.
Thanks for a wonderful experience Martina. You were super helpful with any question we had and made everything very easy for us.
We booked Villa El Dorado for a group of 10 of us for our daughters 21st birthday.
It was amazing from the moment Martina met us at the door. Our group consisted of people ages 18-60 and everyone had an equally amazing time. The house and view leave nothing to be desired. Breathtaking! Martina was very attentive and eager to accommodate us. She arranged a private car for us to go to Talum, Grand Cenote and Akumal Bay which all were amazing. We also had a private chef come in to make us all dinner which rivaled any fine restaurant in the comfort of the villa. The proximity to town made it very easy for the kids to get their Starbucks fix in the morning as well as shopping and enjoying the sights. We cannot wait to return, we are trying to coordinate our calendars so we can plan the next trip to Villa El Dorado. Until next time....
Very comfortable home with great amenities. Perfect location with shopping and dining on 5th Avenue just a short walk away. There were 6 adults and 6 teenage girls in our group and there was room for everyone. Being right on the beach and near beach rentals plus having a pool provided activities for everyone. The staff provided with the rental kept the grounds and home immaculate. Everyone we interacted with from transportation to excursions to the in house chef were friendly and provided outstanding service. Martina is the perfect hostess and accomodated every request and answered all our questions even before arrival. Her recommendations for the in house chef and excursions were excellent. She made sure every detail in the house and our trip was covered. We highly recommend this city and home. It was a truly perfect vacation.
To say that this vacation rental was simply amazing would be a severe understatement. For a week, this beautiful home held my family of 9 with great comfort. The house is directly on the beach yet it remains private -- you can observe the locals and the fun but if you don't want to take part in the activity, you'll still feel your privacy. The distance to great shopping, restaurants, and adventure is walkable, making you feel completely submerged into the culture. The daily staff is fantastic -- they're friendly, approachable, and they keep the property and home immaculately clean. Martina is a dream -- she has a warm demeanor, she's communicative and quick in response, and she truly wants the best stay for all of her guests. I cannot recommend this house and household staff enough. We were sad to leave but we're already planning out next visit!
