Our family of three spent 4 nights with Dave and Lesley at the end of October as part of a two week stay in the area. I wish we had spent more time at Sin Duda. The owners were great, you can tell they really enjoy what they are doing - we have stayed in some places where that is... More

First off, I do not favor large beach resorts. Sin Duda is a small boutique like hotel that sits on a beautiful beach that is off the beaten path. Owners are excellent hosts. Well done. We will be back.

Incredible place, fabulous mermaid guide Lesley to take you around. Nicest snorkeling from the beach in xcalak. Great, clean rooms with views of the sea and with kitchenettes. Love all the furries, cats and dogs lounging and sweet.

We have been long-time fans of the Mexican Yucatan and have made many trips there. Two years ago, acting on a rumor, we decided to explore the Xcalak area and headed south with a rental car, some luggage and not much else, ie. a reservation! After arrival at the village of Xcalak we headed north along the beach road, checking... More

The bumpy road in is deceptive, the destination magical. Well-maintained, clean, comfortable, private accommodations with good beds, fully furnished kitchen, pleasing decor, a supply of books, secluded beach, smooth water, gracious hosts Lesley and Dave, and magnificent margaritas at happy hour! A calming, relaxing change from resorts and timeshare condos, Sin Duda is secreted away in a refreshingly less-developed area... More

Sin Duda Villas is my choice for the ultimate quiet relaxing vacation. It is located in a national park and the reef system is only a few hundred feet off shore. This provides a peaceful lapping of waves on the beach. Magically, it also provides excellent snorkeling at its many easily accessible coral heads. Tropical life abounds here with so... More

I've spent years traveling and this is one of my favorite places I've ever been. The rooms are really nice. The hosts are great people. And the reef and the fish are world class. It's isolated and peaceful and feels just a little wild. A really nice place.
