“The best location in Tulum. Fact!”
Reviewed 12 January 2017 for a stay in August 2016

It's taken some time to get round to reviewing our stay in Tulum but the memories are still clear. What a glorious holiday! We travelled with 2 children (12 & 8) and we couldn't have picked a better spot for a family holiday. You walk out of the back of the house to what is in my opinion the best bit of what already is a perfect beach: No current, soft sand, great waves, fantastic places to eat within yards of your door and turtles! And when bored of the beach (?) the pool gave us another option when it was time to get the kids out of the sun.
Leave by the front door and you are just yards away from some really fabulous places to eat. Casa Banana, Arca, Hartwood etc etc. Get in your car and more wonders are easily accessible. Chichen Itza, Valladolid, Coba, Tulum Mayan ruins etc etc

The house is also just lovely - distinctive, clean and well laid out rooms that are a pleasure to be in.

And to make everything work Guy, Bernardo, Snow and the rest of the team just get things right.

Perfect - want to be there now

“Casa Mandala”
Reviewed 22 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

WOW! We rented 4 villas owned by Guy and everything about each house exceeded our expectations. Casa Mandala has more of a jungle feel, but with the ocean breeze still rolling through. Having the pool there was a huge plus and was fun to gather around at night when it was all lit up and glowing blue. The rooms were spacious and clean and have their own balconies. Lounge chairs, beach floats, and an umbrella were available each day. I highly recommend booking several of the houses on the property if you are traveling with a large group or plan to have your wedding in Tulum. Everyone was able to bounce between the houses and hang out together each night. We hosted our welcome party there between the 4 homes on the property and it was gorgeous and an easy walk to bed after all of the festivities. My husband and I stayed after our wedding party left for a few additional nights. Other families checked into the other homes and it was still so private and we felt like we had the area to ourselves. It was truly a magical time in Tulum. Guy, the owner, was AMAZING! He was there to greet us at check in and checked on us each day. He has great recommendations of places for margaritas, lunch, and romantic dinners. I cannot say enough wonderful things about these properties to do them justice. PERFECTION!!!

It was a pleasure to host your group! The property is ideal for a wedding or family get together as you can rent multiple houses and be neighbours in paradise. Each home is unique and private and together you get the best of all worlds. Since your stay we have added a/c to the second floor bedrooms and the main living area. We can't wait until you visit us again on the beach.

“Best Place to Stay in Tulum”
Reviewed 20 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We rented all of Guy's villas for our wedding in Tulum and it was the best decision ever! It allowed all of our guests to be together for the entire weekend and gave us access to the best stretch of beach and the best restaurants in Tulum. The villas are perfectly located and Guy and Snow could not be more responsive and more helpful in answering questions and getting you acclimated. The beach in front of the villas has an amazing set up with beds and lounge chairs and the pool at Mandala is perfect for cooling off after a day at the beach. The house itself is beyond beautiful and has everything you could ever want during your stay. Honestly we could not recommend Guy's properties any more highly as the best place to stay in all of Tulum. Thank you for everything!

“Beautiful Home, Amazing Beach!”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I love to travel, and doing such, I heavily rely on reviews to help me plan the best trips I can. In return, I take great care in making sure I leave accurate-as-possible reviews for others, too. We recently stayed at Casa Mandala for two nights during a week-long family vacation. The house is beautiful, hands down, and it's in the perfect area for walking to La Zebra, Taqueria La Eufemia, Casa Banana, etc. We always felt safe. Bernardo was a pleasant, friendly host, but for some reason I had issues getting in touch with him. Fortunately, I was able to message Snow, and she in turn would communicate with Bernardo our needs and he would respond fairly quickly.

While the house is kind of surreal in the architectural and landscape sense, it has no ocean breeze or view. You can't even hear the ocean. One of the photos shows a "peek through the green foliage" to the ocean, and I assumed this was near the house. It isn't, and is more likely in front of Bonita or next to Gaia instead. Despite this misunderstanding, the walk to the beach wasn't that difficult, and took only a couple of minutes at a leisurely pace with three kids.

The wifi is a bit of a disappointment. Yes, there's wifi available - but the networks are actually located within the other houses on the property. We had perfect reception while at the beach, but once we were back at the house our service was limited to the pool area only. None within the house, so anything requiring wifi had to be done outside, and I was only able to make phone calls outside the gate, by the street.

Our three kids slept on the second floor, while my husband and I slept in the master on the third level. It was pretty surprising to realize the only accessible stairway to the different levels are outside, leading up from the living area downstairs. Also, not all of the doors lock from the inside. I slept like a hawk the first night, listening for anything out of the ordinary. Fortunately, we didn't have any problems, but I think it's important to let others know this fact, since some people may have a bigger issue with this than we did.

After a very hot, restless first night, Bernardo came by and offered us a chance to move to Casa Bonita - ocean view, ocean breeze, ocean sound.. ahhh! Had it been just us, we would've jumped at the opportunity, but our kids liked to enjoy the pool at night so we stayed. Next time, I would definitely consider Casa Bonita before the other houses, simply for the view!

Even after the hiccups and unexpected surprises, we absolutely loved and enjoyed the stretch of beach we had, and our family had a blast with the boogie boards and kayaks! Thank you Snow for allowing us the opportunity to enjoy Casa Mandala, and the beautiful beach!

We are happy you enjoyed your time on the beach. Casa Mandala is set back 40m from the beach. It does not have the same view as the homes at the front of the property - Casa de las Palmas, Casita Bonita + Casa Gaia, but it has the pool and shade palapas and loungers on the beach for you to use. We are boosting our wifi signal on the property. We added boosters to the beach area and the system works so well we are adding it to the rest of the property. Tulum is a very safe area. You can walk the beach at night. However, we want you to feel comfortable and relaxed. To put guests at ease and to protect us from the potential of petty theft we now have security at night. We are looking into other lock options for the doors. To clarify, they do all close securely from the inside, but we would like to improve our system. We hope to add a/c in the next few months. Thank you for your feedback and for staying with us! We hope you return to Tulum soon.

“Great home, close to the beach and a beautiful pool!”
Reviewed 31 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Casa Mandala is a beautiful house on the beach with a great pool. Pools are rare in Tulum, so we felt lucky to have one after a day on the beach or sightseeing around Tulum. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Guy, Bernardo and Snow helped make our trip great. They arranged a few days of sightseeing with Martin, who was amazing. He took to cenotes that don't get a lot of tourists, as well as other destinations within Tulum. Restaurants and bars are all within walking distance, or a short taxi ride. Casa Tulum is a must stay, when you go to Tulum. We'll definitely be back!

“Beautiful home allowing you to experience all Tulum has to offer.”

person found this review helpful

The home was beautiful and just as the pictures showcased. It is situated just steps away from the beautiful beach and ocean, with well maintained paths and landscaping along the way. The other homes on the property are far enough and covered enough with greenery for plenty of privacy, while also still being close enough if you were to rent out all 3 for a larger group.
We had daily cleaning services, and the recommended chef, Irma, cook for us one night. She was fantastic, very friendly, and knew exactly what she was doing.
The location along the Tulum Beach strip is perfect, allowing you to walk to many great restaurants (Casa Banana, Hartwood, Le Zebra) and shopping boutiques, including Coqui Coqui.
Guy, the home owner, was one of the best parts of the experience. He's a perfect host, greeting us when we arrived and showing us around the property. He was very helpful in communicating plans for the cooking services, and recommending restaurants, places, and things to do around the area. He was always available, reliable, and always responded to questions very quickly.
We've already talked about coming back and staying in the same location.

My family and I rented the house for 10 days over the Easter holidays. We know Tulum quite well and the house was at the perfect spot. Nearby you can find great restaurants and cafés for breakfast and you have the most beautiful Caribbean beach right in front of your door. Just a little walk (a minute or so) though a narrow private path and you are right at the ocean. The house is brand new and the kids loved the little pool for a refreshment after swimming in the sea :) The kitchen has everything you need for preparing breakfast or lunch / dinner. But actually there are so many nice opportunities nearby that we did not cook too much ourselves. Just a morning coffee mainly. The master bedroom is just great, with a big Palappa roof. There are 2 other houses on the same property but you really can be there in private. Guy, the owner was very nice and friendly. He came by once in a while to say "Hi" and helped us with all our questions. He organized a massage for us in the house and also a chef for a real Mexican dinner party for our daughters birthday. We loved the time there and will definitely come back. :)
