“Spectacular!”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A great and wonderful site! A great place for a family reunion or for a group of friends.
Although we never met the owners, we communicated quite often and established a trustworthy relationship. Loic, was extremely flexible, Laura (the concierge) made sure we had everything we needed. A real facilitator, she went out of her way to arrange for a baby car seat at the last moment. We advise to use her services, particularly to be picked up at the airport on your arrival - George and Rafael...great chefs! Always smiling and quite flexible as well with meal time. We stayed nine days, and wished we had booked for two weeks. Beautiful villa and beautiful people.

“Beautiful home in paradise”

We absolutely loved our stay! It is on an uncrowded, tranquil bay. There is a reef that you are able to kayak or swim out to for snorkeling. The house itself is beautiful, well maintained. The caretakers are friendly and do a wonderful job keeping the property looking great. We stayed in the one bedroom apartment as it was just my husband and I. We walked along the bay many times and this property has one of the best, if not the best, beach front locations of any other property on the bay. It is very central, if you go much further south the beach entry gets pretty rocky. We loved Chamico's, a rustic outdoor restaurant a short walk down the bay. We would definitely return, hopefully we can bring friends and family with us next time! It would be a wonderful to rent the entire home. Be prepared to drive if you want to leave the property (unless you want to call a taxi, which you could do). We had no problems with our rental car or driving in Mexico!

“Great Place!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We absolutely loved staying at Sombras Del Viento. We stayed in the 2 bedroom Sirocco apartment with our two children. Everything from the hosts & staff to the landscaping is top notch!. The apartment has everything you need during your stay and the bedrooms can be air conditioned if you like. The location is great, lots of privacy but only a short drive into Tulum for dining and shopping. The pools, decks, and sitting areas are wonderful. Our kids loved looking for shells along the bay and snorkeling from the kayaks. I would highly recommend staying in either the two apartments or renting the entire house if you have a larger group.

“Like a dream”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 for a stay in October 2012

Sombras Del Viento was fantastic. I went here on my honeymoon with my new wife. Loic and his wife were so friendly and helpful, and we felt at home immediately. Miguel and Allejandra were also wonderful.

We had access to snorkeling equipment, kayaks, and paddleboats whenever we wanted, and were able to explore Solimon Bay on our own. The beach was full of seaweed, but that's okay, because that's how real beaches are! There is a pool, in case you don't want the saltwater or waves.

One of my business partners secretly contacted Loic while we were there, and with his help, set us up with a romantic honeymoon snorkeling trip through a nearby cenote. We thought it was wonderful that Loic was so helpful to set this up for us.

We were also there while some tortugas eggs were about to be hatched. Loic and his wife had blocked off the area with sticks. They were born 2 days after we left, and Loic sent us photos of the tiny turtles.

We will hopefully be back to Sombras Del Viento in the future.
