“A beautiful, quality home and welcoming staff”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We took three generations of our family for a week stay at Casa Buena Suerte. It sits on a quiet bay lined with lovely homes surrounded by nature - but still within a short drive of all the activities in Tulum and diving in the area cenotes. The home is up-to-date and well decorated and very comfortable, and the layout spreads the bedrooms around so that everyone has a bit of privacy. The staff couldn't be more accommodating. The house manager, Hugo, is beyond helpful and charming and in fact made our experience even happier with his sunny disposition. He even figured out that it was my parents' wedding anniversary in a couple of weeks' time and produced an anniversary cake for them, which was beyond thoughtful. The chef staff (Jose and Amauri) have a great set of dishes and a menu that makes meal planning super easy - and each meal was fresh and delicious and rave-worthy. Aurelio keeps the pool and grounds pristine and Sofia keeps the rooms orderly and beds made. There isn't any time to be bored at Casa Buena Suerte... with the warm pool, the long swath of beach, the kayaking and snorkeling, one really could remain in the confines of the house and neighborhood and be totally satisfied We'll look forward to returning as soon as possible.

Liked best: The staff
Liked least: Water shoes are needed to pick you way out to swimmable water. One can walk down the beach to more of a sandy entrance to the sea, but directly in front of the house one definitely needs water shoes.

“EVEN BETTER THAN IT LOOKS!”
Reviewed 15 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We're about to head back to our wintry home but wanted to write our review before leaving this magical place. First: the location. Soliman Bay has a beautiful, quiet , peaceful beach and is minutes away from Tulum, with its restaurants, shops, beaches, amazing Mayan ruins, etc. The house itself: beautifully decorated, right on the water yet extremely private. Each bedroom has its own personality, and is a master suite in and of itself. Every detail is taken care of--Hugo and his house staff are there for your every need. The chef was first-class. We've stayed in many luxurious places, but have rarely experienced this degree of luxury. Based on the pictures and reviews we saw online, we came with high expectations, but our actual experience definitely exceeded them.

“Villa Exceeded all Expectations!”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We stayed at CBS in July with 11 family members; ages 85-13 - the villa was great for everyone! The owner Marc was extremely helpful with all sorts of information and answered our many questions before arrival and even called to check on us during our stay.
The villa is beautifully kept and has everything you could want and then some. It is very spacious and offers many different areas to enjoy. Having the beach right in front was heaven. You can wake up to a spectacular view, head out snorkeling without the hassle of having to drive somewhere.
The staff is wonderful, with the ever pleasant Hugo to take care of all your needs. The chef service was awesome and the whole family ate together each night without having to cook or do the dishes! We are still talking about how good the food was and highly recommend the Chile Rellenos. We didn’t rent a car, but used the transportation recommended and it worked out very well.
As an added bonus on our last evening there we got to see a large sea turtle come out of the water onto the beach and lay her eggs which was absolutely amazing.
We would all come back to CBS in a heartbeat and think it was well worth it.

“Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed 4 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I had been dreaming of vacationing with my family in Tulum for a long time, obsessively researching where to stay and what to do with this precious time I woud finally have away from a demanding job, with my favorite people. After a difficult few years, I needed a mental and physical getaway in the biggest way. So I arrived at Casa Buena Suerte brimming with exceedingly high expectations... And every single hope and dream and wish and need that I had for our trip was met, and far exceeded!

It is impossible to recount all the ways in which CBS is perfect, but here are some highlights:

* CBS's location on Soliman Bay is an ideal base from which to explore this beautiful, captivating region. It is a 10 min. drive from the cozy town of Tulum, the spectacular Ruinas, the gorgeous hotel zone, and hundreds natural wonders (cenotes, animal sanctuaries, reefs, etc.). At the same time, the Bay is sheltered, quiet, private, peaceful, and blessed with a strong (and much appreciated) breeze. My immediate family rented a car which made it easy to explore the area. Other members of our group requested transportation as needed, but were content to spend most of their time at CBS.

* Honestly, Casa Buena Suerte is a destination itself, and even those of us who loved exploring the region made sure to spend a lot of time at the house, it was that nice. The Casa is absolutely gorgeous, with five large, well-spaced, beautifully decorated bedrooms, and a detached palapa on the beach where my husband and I were incredibly fortunate to stay, gazing at the sparkling turquoise Caribbean from our bed, and falling asleep to the sound of the surf. It was impossible not to be in a state of bliss the entire time!

* The layout of the property allows guests to have as much privacy or communal time as they wish. Those who want to read, reflect, and stare at the ocean can find a quiet spot, while others can lay out in groups to sun, swim, chat, or play games. Active people can use the kayaks & snorkels, kids can splash in the pool, partiers can sip margaritas... Everyone can have their own perfect experience!

* And all of this is facilitated by the wonderful Hugo, the house manager who we nicknamed "El Jefe de Happiness." Hugo is literally the personification of "don't worry, be happy," and I guarantee you that is exactly the state of mind you will experience at Casa Buena Suerte.

My only complaint is that I had to leave.... My only question: when can I go back?

“Like No Other Place on Earth”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I am not one to pass out superlatives unless it is deserved. I have stayed in many places around the world that are deserving of a rating of excellence. I gave Casa Buena Suerte's rating of 5, but if Tripadvisor had a a rating that allowed 7 ought of 5 I would give it to this place. And I would give it for two reasons. The design, the integrity of the design and its authenticity and functional beauty and setting are unmatched. The second are the people who work there to take care of you, especially Hugo, the house manager. He is a character of charm and caring that made our stay. Never met anyone like Hugo.

For relaxation, beauty of a place and the source of memories that will last longer than you will.....this is the place.
