Villas Geminis Boutique Condo Hotel
Ranked #38 of 102 Hotels in Tulum
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 December 2017

The apartment is super nice! It's an open space well furnished, total white effect, over exposed: big windows are all over the walls. We also had a private terrace with a big tub and a little table with chairs for chilling out.
At the ground floor, actually at the internal garden, you can have your breakfast all together in a common table or in separate tiny tables. To complete, a nice pool and hammocks are also available at this boutique hotel.
The receptionist - Miguel, if I remember well - was very nice in explaining us how to use the facilities and we felt immediately at home!

The property is located just one block of the main road and is very easy to find. Once we entered, it felt like a little sanctuary. The welcome area, with the garden was beautifully designed and there were little pops of color in the design that stood out, contrasting with the clear blue swimming pool!

We were greeted by Carmen who swiftly checked if our room was ready as we arrived early, and it was! We walked up a couple of steps and arrived at the Degas Penthouse. Located right at the top of the property was our penthouse room, which did not disappoint! Gorgeous, spacious, bright and airy was the space, with a kitchenette (stocked with all you would need, drinking water and two coffee machines, one was nespresso machine/capsules and filter coffee) and outdoor soaking tub! The bed was very comfortable and we slept well.

In the morning the breakfast was served downstairs in the little Cafe area, with delicious eggs, jams and fresh bread - it was the perfect start to the day. Free wifi and bicycles are also available and this for us was perfect as we would cycle down to the beach and around the town everyday (about 25mins ride).

To top it all off however, the staff must be mentioned, from Carmen to Carlos and all the others, they were kind, friendly and nothing was ever too much - this makes all the difference.

Would definitely recommend VG to all, even families with small children as their care for details is not to be missed.

Very noisy and not at all relaxing, right next to a truck and diggers depo. Loud noisy from very early morning, not enough space to relax by the pool as it is also a transit area and not private. Poor breakfast and terribly rusty bikes, over all poorly kept. The room we stayed in was nice and comfortable, but light buld in bathroom did not work, door to toilet is tight and shower lacks power and it's not easy to get the temperature right. Air con was good ans so were ceiling fans, hair dryer in rhe bathroom was not properly fixed to wall and kept falling off. Not a boutique hotels as claimed by owner, as there is no attention to detail or anything different than any other establishment of similar prices. I wouldn't not recommend, but would stay here afain purely for the staff which were fantastic, kind and caring, which is the only good memories I have from this hotel.

We booked the Klimt room with outdoor tub for one night and for the price we paid there is no other option to give 5 stars to the boutique hotel. Very clean and big room, coffee and espresso machine, mixer, toaster in the kitchen, nice romantic outdoor tub with candles, nice little tropic garden, nice breakfast (more than only continental) with fresh fruits, joghurt, scrummbled eggs, toasts, cereals and cake and free bikes.

Only negative point: I m confused about the 5 star ranking on booking.com. At tripadvisor the hotel get 3.5 stars. In my opinion, even if everything was perfect for the price, 5 stars is a bit too much.

Result: I recomend this hotel as a very valuable alternative to the overpriced beach hotels!

Hi Raphael! We are so happy you were so pleased with your Klimt Studio, garden & yummy breakfast. Just a quick note, for the booking.com ranking, this is chosen by booking.com and not by us. We thank you very much for choosing to stay with us and giving us such a great score on Tripadvisor. Please come back soon to your home away from home!

Just returned from an anniversary getway and had a great time. Villa Geminis was a great base for hanging, cooling off, exploring the town and beach front. The folks there are awesome, helpful, patient with my broken spanish and just very helpful with info for tours, eating, shopping and making sure we had a good time while there.. Basic bikes are availble to use and we enjoyed using them to get around. If possible try to get a room on the ground floor so you can hang in your hammock as you chill. The morning breakfast was always delicious and wonderful to have ready as we started our day. Ask at the desk for other suggestions [e.g. great Spanish restaurant close by owners are folks from Barcelona with great tapas and paella. Very nice folks. They have cards for a great Argentinean ice cream place not far- 5 min walk] Its a great neighborhood and quiet at night unlike other places. Have fun. ps the pool is always cool.

Villas Geminis Condo Hotel is a little gem located in the heart of town in Tulum, Mexico. It is comprised of 10 luxury, spacious condominiums, with a beautiful swimming pool, surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and only minutes from the most spectacular beaches of the Caribbean in Mexico's Riviera Maya.

The nearby attractions include: Coba & Chichen Itza ruins and snorkeling & swimming with dolphins in the archaeological parks of Xel Ha or Xcaret & the new Xplor adventure park. We are a 5 minute drive to the
 beach, the Mayan ruins 
and cenotes. It is so centrally located, that you can walk everywhere to the supermarkets, fresh produce & fish market, restaurants, shops, bank, internet, car rental, etc.... (There is no need for a rental car, taxis are everywhere & inexpensive). There are four 2 bedroom accommodations, (4 - 6 people) which are comprised of 2 levels: the downstairs with a complete kitchen, bar, dining room, living room with a futon (for additional guests) and a complete bathroom. The upstairs has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, both w/air conditioning, and balcony overlooking the swimming pool and tropical garden. There is a luminous bathroom with a rainhead shower and double sinks. There is a 1 bedroom accommodation, ( 2 - 4 people) which is comprised of one level, with a king bed, A/C, a complete bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and living room with a double sofa bed for additional guests. We have 2 one bedroom suits, and 3 brand new Penthouse Studios that have private terraces and outdoor soaking tubs. The 10 units can be rented individually or as a group, making Villas Geminis the best vacation rental for a wedding, family reunion or for friends and families traveling together. There is 24 hour security, cable television, wireless internet and parking. Free daily housekeeping. A change of linens and towels is provided every 3 days or as requested. We provide bottled water, coffee, coffeemaker, tea, sugar, organic shampoo, conditioner and soap. Rates include complimentary continental breakfast and bicycles.

The exclusive privacy and tranquility of our vacation rentals make this relaxing sanctuary the perfect place for your Mexican Caribbean get away. Tulum is true paradise, come and enjoy 
your stay at Villas Geminis, close to
 the beach but with the amenities and
 services from town. Why rent a hotel room, when you can have your own home (away from home) for the same price.... ... more   less
