We loved our week at Villa Albatros. The house was spacious and beautiful and the outdoor patio area in the back was absolutely perfect. There were lots of places to relax in both the sun and the shade and the pool was a great spot to take a dip. The beach was only steps away with soft sand and turquoise water. The service at the house was wonderful - from the chef to the housekeeper, everyone was helpful, friendly and kind. Andreas, the house concierge, was a great resource and helped us to plan several fun excursions. We will definitely be back!
We had a family of ten and stayed at Villa Albatross for a week. Everything was superb and it was perfect for our needs. They arranged for all of our transportation needs throughout the week, starting with having a van pick us up at the airport when we arrived. They also provided recommendations on various activities (we enjoyed scuba, golf, xplor, and a trip to Chichen Itza) and took care of every detail. We also took advantage of the offer to take care of grocery shopping and cooking, and it was a fantastic decision! The food was terrific, and it was even better than we didn't have to worry about shopping, cooking, or cleaning up. They had staff on-site (a chef, a bartender, a maid, a security guard, and one or two others) but they were never in the way and we were amazed at their attention to every detail.
The house has six bedrooms--one has a few single beds, and another is near the front of the house so does not have an ocean view. The rest have king or queen beds and their own bathrooms. This arrangement worked perfectly for us. The pictures on the web site do a great job of accurately depicting the property.
Andreas (the concierge) and Robert (the owner) were wonderful to work with, and helped this vacation create great lifetime memories for our family. This was an excellent experience for us!
This was a perfect venue for our family vacation. We were 10 guests and had 2 join for the last two days. There was plenty of space for sleeping, lounging, and eating as a group, yet there was also plenty of space to have some time away from the group. The pool was amazing and cleaned every morning and afternoon. The service was spectacular. We opted to cook our own meals but I suggest utilizing the kitchen and meal services provided. We had a great stay and felt safe the entire time. The beach access was great. I would say the water itself was nicer about 1/2-3/4 mile down, but it was an easy and enjoyable walk.
Finally, we were initially worried about payment arrangements being via wire, but found that everything went smoothly and there was no need to worry.
If you are looking for a "true" vacation to get away from it all and really relax, this is the place for you. The pictures you will see of the villa & its views due not do it justice and the staff takes care of you as if you were at a 5 star hotel. The villa is quite spacious, an incredible pool and it sits right on the beach. The food is some of the best you will have. There will really be no need to leave the villa. We came with 3 families, 15 people in total and had one of the best vacations in quite some time.
We are already looking forward to a return visit.
We knew it would be a great stay but we didn't expect what we left with, picture perfect memories. We have 4 small kids and keeping everyone happy all the time isn't easy. We had a week of the best time together we've ever had. The weather , the house, the activities and most importantly, the staff. Andreas.... made the trip! He is so over the top kind. The chef and his help.... the best! We had a waiter Palma, whom is now a house hold conversation piece ... we ALL loved him!! Can't wait to go back.
This villa is located in the hotel zone but is very private (on a gated road). It has 6 bedrooms over multiple levels and almost all of the rooms have a balcony that faces the ocean. The villa has it's own pool and is also steps away from the beach, which was not crowded (we really liked that). The villa is very well maintained and the staff are just amazing (and very accommodating)! We opted to have meals at the villa and the food was outstanding. Andreas (the house manager) was very responsive to all of our requests and arranged transportation, a trip to Tulum, fishing, jet skis, etc. for us. There wasn't anything that we didn't have - it was perfect!
The hardest part of reviewing this villa is where to begin....so here we go.....
We were an adult group of 6 couples who stayed for a week. We have stayed in hotels, rented villas and condos in several countries over the past 10 years, so we have a good idea of our needs and expectations when searching for properties. For this trip we decided on Cancun as our destination. Based on all of the prior rave reviews, this property instantly stood out. I can say now, without any hesitation, we made the best choice. Hands down.
The location is perfect. Right smack in the middle of all of Cancun's finest resorts, this property offers everything you need without the crowds.
After taking my first walk along the beach (passing several 5 star resorts along the way) I knew instantly we made the right choice to stay in a private home. I couldn't get back to the villa fast enough.
The house is more beautiful than the pictures could ever capture. Immaculately clean, impeccably decorated and furnished. You couldn't ask for anything more.
Every piece of art work and decor has purpose and a story....so well done.
One couple stayed in each bedroom (6 total bedrooms) so we filled it to capacity... With that said, we were all comfortable and privacy was respected. We never felt we were stepping on each other. The beds, linens, pillows were all top quality and comfortable.
The staff was perfect. All professional and extremely attentive without being intrusive.
One of the best choices we made was going with the food plan. If you're contemplating whether to do it or not.....a piece of advise....just do it.
Angel the chef is just that....an angel. Delicious everything. All dietary requests were honored and it just kept getting better as the week went on.
Andreas, the house manager, was exceptional. A true professional who anticipated our needs and flawlessly followed through. I could write an entire review on Andreas alone!!
It's hard to find other words other than 'amazing', 'expectational', 'beautiful' and 'perfect' to describe our experience....so here's one word to describe everything:
I will definitely go back. I just wish it could be today.
Thank you, Robert and Andreas!!!!!!!!
