“Great vacations in familly”

person found this review helpful

We went to Sombras Del Viento for school break (1st week of March) and we were thrilled with the place. It was a family vacation of 13 people and everyone enjoyed their vacation. We appreciated the fact that every couple had their own room with equipped individual bathrooms. The rooms were very confortable and the cleaners came everyday so the villa remained spotless throughout the week. The chefs made quality meals with fresh food everyday. It was fun to split our day between the beach and the pool. We were happy of our decision to rent a villa instead of an all-inclusive resort as it allowed us to spend quality time together (no need to rush to get chairs on the beach in the morning as we had our own private beach with enough chairs for everyone. Also, we could all sit together for meals as there was a big enough table for everyone. Eating outside is always a plus and we were lucky enough to be able to enjoy all of our meals outside (the villa is also equipped with plastic shades in case it becomes too windy or if it rains) but in case the weather gets bad, there is also a big dining table inside the villa. Every member of the staff was very nice and helpful. Since we were there for only one week, we limited our activities outside the villas but we visited the Dos Ojos cenotes which are located 10 minutes away from the villa and are a must see and the ruins at Tulum which is close by. We also did the VIP package for the dinner-show Joya from Cirque du Soleil at Vidanta. It was an outstanding experience and our concierge was nice enough to organise transportation (it is about 45 minutes from the villa). We recommend Sombras Del Viento with no hesitation.

From a previous review, it was mention that if you need groceries or alcohol go to San Francisco de Asís supermarket in Tulum. I would recommend not to go there as, on the same street (turning left instead of right); you will find a pretty large supermarket with much more items. For Alcool, if you want better wine or strong alcool, on the street going to Tullum, after the Street where San Francisco or Supermarket is located, you could find a liquor store on the left hand side, just about 0.5-1.0 km. Please note that a good Patron Tequila bottle cost at this store 670 Pesos and the same bottle at the Duty free free in the airport is 1150 Pesos.

“Paradise in Soliman Bay!”
Reviewed 14 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We love the beach house it has three separate living areas so it will accommodate many people. We had 11 people so there was plenty of room. Every room has A/C and a private bathroom. We wanted to get away from the resorts and this was quiet place in middle of Soliman Bay. The is bay beautiful and all the gear you need for snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding are there at the house and there are pools if you don’t like the ocean. We enjoyed snorkeling around the reef at the mouth of the bay. We saw a lot of difference fish and few sea turtles. We loved chefs "Rolando & Jorge" and the meals were great, they take great pride cooking for you! There is a nice restaurant and small place on the beach to eat that you can walk to, we enjoyed both of them. The caretakers "Ricardo & Suzy" were always great and ready to help and they kept house, grounds and beach looking great. Gina the concierge was great with coordinating transportation, excursions and had plenty of info about the area. We rented a large 15 person van from the airport to get around. If you don’t plan on doing much I would suggest using USA transfer to get you to and from the airport it cost $150. The beach house is about 15 min. from Tulum for shopping and ruins and 45 min. from Playa De Carmen. We visited the Coba ruins about 45 min. away which were great and you can still climb Nohoch Mul the tallest pyramid in the Yucatan . If you need groceries or alcohol go to San Francisco de Asís supermarket in Tulum its 12 min. away, better and closer than going to Walmart, it also has ATM which was nice for getting pesos. The locals prefer pesos over the dollar and you do not have to worry about the exchange rate and checking prices. We would diffidently rent it again!!

“Best location for a family vacation...”
Reviewed 7 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We took our family here for a week vacation in January and everything about the experience was wonderful. We have a blended family and took the whole house. The fact that the house is divided into 3 separate areas was a great plus. Divided enough to give some privacy...but together enough for spending time together. The house itself is even better than the pictures. There is always that fear of "will it look like the pictures?" when you rent a house based just on pictures. Don't worry! It's better. The location for us was perfect. We had a van so we could get around. It's location on the beach was so secluded that it almost felt like a private beach...we rarely saw people walk by....and that beach was wonderful and supplied with everything that you needed to have a great time. If you want to eat at a restaurant, there are two within walking distance. One on the beach with plastic chairs that closes before dark and another in a hotel on the beach a short walk away. The cooks are so good that you don't have to ever go to a restaurant. We loved the food and the cooks were very accommodating. (My only suggestion with the cooks is pay for the supplies in peso's. They don't give a good exchange rate if you use $.) We used Laura to set up several outings for us including scuba diving, a band to play for a party and some sight seeing. Again, she was great making sure that everything went perfectly. There is nothing that we would have wished to be different other than being able to stay longer.

“Best family vacation to date!”
Reviewed 19 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We just got back and already planning to go back next year. Everything was amazing about this place. The location, the back yard to the private beach, the amazing chefs and staff. About the week we only venture out twice and only ate out once. You get everything just at the house. You get the beach, the pool and amazing food.

I would recommend this house to any one looking for a relaxin vacation with their family.

We also felt so secure and safe. No worries what so ever!

Did i mention the food was amazing!! :)

And the pictures don't lie, it is as amazing and the pictures show. Which was a first for us.

Laura is amazing so helpful too. We are in love!!

“Paradise!”
Reviewed 10 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The house itself is AMAZING! The pictures definitely don't do it justice at all. Everything is very well kept and we felt right at home. We had 15 people in our group, no kids. We had my wedding here at the house and it was amazing... I can't wait to see the pictures!
Rolando & Jorge-- the Chefs were amazing. Very flexible on the dietary restrictions that we had in the group. (You must try their Cheese Pie!) Alejandra & Miguel-- the caretakers were always ready to help and kept everything looking clean. Laura-- the concierge was great with communication before and during the trip. She was very helpful getting our group coordinated and with tips for the area.
I would recommend renting a vehicle, it was easy for us to go to town for shopping and for any last minute items-- beware the road is bumpy.
The only thing that we would change would be the dog on the premises. We aren't dog people, but he pretty much stayed away.
Hopefully we can return soon... it was very sad to leave such a beautiful place! TIP: Do some star watching-- we saw a ton of shooting stars!
