We are still here...halfway through our visit and I had to write this review. My family and I are eating another amazing meal, prepared by an amazing chef, as the breeze gently blows with he waves crashing in the background. But everything on Soliman Bay has that feel; however, this place is a completely different deal.
If you have the money, and care about not having to literally care about anything, then book this place now. It's simply perfect. I've been to Soliman Bay now 4 times and this place is better than any hotel or house we have ever stayed at.
Beautiful house, well maintained, lots of space. The beds comfortable, sheets clean and changed daily. Bathrooms are clean and spacious ( ours had a bidet ). All have small balconies and screen doors. All rooms have AC units.
Only issue- Our bathroom window let in a sewage smell that was probably near the plumbing.
Beach was excellent, clean and the water clear by the house. Further along the beach, the beach was much rockier and with lots of coral. Snorkelling close to the beach possible and fish, and rays visible.
The pool was well maintained and the large table by the beach was great for large dinners with a great breeze.
Lots of snorkeling gear available as well as a couple of kayaks and paddle boards.
There is a great snorkeling spot where you can anchor the kayak to close to the reef where the water is about 12 feet deep.
The staff were excellent. Fernando and Iliana were hospitable and keep the place looking pristine. We had Chef Edwin and Armando cooking for us and every meal was excellent.....fresh, creative, tasty and he even made a killer margarita. If you can, request for Edwin, he will truly make your time there so much better.
Overall, Villa Soliman is a beautiful location, has excellent staff working there and is well maintained. Would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a beach vacation with a large group and a beach that is not busy.
This villa is absolutely spectacular! The location on Soliman Bay is beautiful and although it is about a 20 minute drive to Tulum, I enjoyed the beach here better than the beaches in Tulum! Being on the bay you can kayak, snorkel, and stand up paddle board (which the house is equipped with), whereas the hotels located in Tulum do not allow you to do such since they are directly on the Caribbean. I stayed here for my 30th birthday and there were 12 girls in the home- we all slept very comfortably with 2 to a room/bathroom. Each room has its own balcony with an ocean view. The pool on the main level is great and the plunge pool on the roof top is great to drink in! We had a chef for a day and I would highly recommend getting one for your entire stay! We honestly never even needed to leave the villa, except we wanted to explore Tulum so we left a few times. We would wake up every morning to freshly brewed coffee and a clean home- I dont know how they cleaned up after us because we were quite the messy group! This is the perfect villa- we partied yet felt so relaxed. We booked through Maya Luxe and I would 100% use them again- they are great in their customer service! I will be returning to this Villa as soon as possible!
I was a guest with the party renting this lovely villa and everyone agreed that nothing could be better. The location right on the beach in Soliman Bay was ideal and it was a close trip in to Tulum and my Spanish school (Meztli Spanish School which was also perfection). There are dining options near the villa so no need to rent a car. We enjoyed cooking in our kitchen on the days a chef wasn't arranged for us. The beach was just lovely and right off of our patio, we used the kayaks provided as well as the snorkel equipment. We also had a swimming pool and plenty of places to relax and to dine out of doors. We hope to rent again next year.
I must be honest - we had the best time of our life. We brought both our families to Tulum to this wonderful Villa, spent a week there and celebrated our wedding at the beach.
Prep work was very good as Massimiliano was extremely helpful and patient with us. Whatever he was saying was correct and right. Location, villa, beach & personnel is just amazing. Massimiliano mentioned beforehand that there was a new house built on the neighbour's property - proactively he gave us a discount. Very honest!
Staff was great and always helpful. Everything was permanently cleaned up. The cooks (Antonio, Victoria and team) did an amazing job.. not just in doing what they were supposed to do, but much much more than that :-)
We loved it - thanks to all!
