“Wonderful beach get-a-way”
Reviewed 13 January 2015 for a stay in October 2014

We had about 18 family members, with a wide range of ages and interests. The house and the beach were great! Many of us spent most of the time on the property and never had need of a thing, Those that ventured out found many great activities close by. The place was big enough that we were able to get away from each other when desired, even when the weather was bad. The food was great and the fact that none of us cooked or cleaned up was wonderful! The pool and pool area was like paradise. And I do not really like pools. The snorkeling just off the beach in the bay may not have been world class, but was wonderful for a bunch of folks from the mountains.

“Not enough superlatives to describe Villa Vidorra”
Reviewed 31 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

people found this review helpful

We just returned from a stay with extended family at Villa Vidorra on Soliman Bay. Honestly, it was the nicest rental property we have ever stayed in. It is like a boutique mini hotel. The owners designed the house with groups in mind, so the public spaces are all well laid out. There is a very large living room space, with a separate TV room and a separate dining room area, but there are no walls- the main floor is very open and light, with high ceilings and floor to ceiling windows. As a previous reviewer noted, it is nicer in person than it is in the photos because of the scale of the property. Both floors have very high ceilings, and all the bedrooms and the living room have recessed brick bovida ceilings which are stunning. The materials are all top notch- the entire house, including the pool area, has marble floors, huge tiled showers, thick solid wood doors, and there are onyx sinks & an onyx tub, beautiful light fixtures and tile work, and a gorgeous marble staircase with a custom iron handrail. The beds, linens, and furniture were all comfortable and the house is tastefully decorated. No detail was missed, down to the hand laid brick portion of the road outside the house (which is a dirt road before and after the house).

The service was also excellent. Chef Leo, Chef Felipe and Luis the bartender/ server provided service that far exceeded our expectations. We ate more food than even they could believe, and whatever we requested, they prepared with a smile. The kitchen staff felt like part of our family by the end of the week. As it is still a new property, any small issues that arose were addressed immediately by the owners who are tirelessly committed to offering the highest level of customer service to their guests.

Villa Vidorra is by far the nicest house on Soliman Bay, and perhaps the nicest house in the region. It is also very quiet and private both inside and out. We had a group of 12 and when I closed our bedroom door, I could not hear the music playing or people talking downstairs. There are comfortable chairs in the sun and shade at the beach and at the pool, and a big shaded seating area by the pool. The bay has sea grass, but there is a path that leads to the turquoise waters just beyond. We used the kayaks and paddle board every day.

The owners also helped us coordinate excursions with Riviera Adventours and arranged for massage therapists to come to the house (the massages were excellent). They have left no stone unturned- even the light switches are labeled. There are truly not enough superlatives to describe Villa Vidorra. It was a stay our family will cherish for many years to come.

“Beautiful luxury villa with pool, located on the beach”

I stayed at Villa Vidorra for 8 nights with 2 sisters and all of our spouses and children--a group of 12 of us ranging in age from 14 to 57. We all had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the stunning villa. The beds were very comfortable, decor beautiful and very high quality, staff very friendly and efficient (especially the 3 kitchen staff)--what more could you ask?! A great extended family vacation. I had been worried about sharing the house with some noisy youngsters but the villa is so solid that when we shut our room door you could not hear noise from other rooms which was great! I highly recommend this villa!

“Villa Vidorra Surpassed Expectations for All - Ages 1 to 80.”
Reviewed 3 December 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

Villa Vidorra on Soliman Bay made life-long memories for our 15 extended family members that arrived from Montana, Colorado and Texas. As senior member, I have never in my long life, experienced better/friendly service. The food was superb, beautifully presented and individually adapted to the tastes and needs of individuals. The housekeeping was immaculate, the pool clean and inviting. Multicolored pool lights enhance parties and our impromptu hermit crab races. Sitting in a beach chair, shaded by tropical vegetation, I watched the family make castles and animal figures from clean sand, wade in gentle surf, snorkel for hours in the quarter-mile bay from beach to breakers, and paddle small craft provided by the Villa. This place felt like a private tropical home away from home, except here the staff kept bringing tasty cool drinks. How warm and relaxing! There was easy access to excitement; floating in Cenotes, swimming with sea turtles, drifting through wild marshes, and exploring Mayan ruins. The luxurious Villa's website photos caused great expectations; but reality exceeded expectations. I won't forget the beautiful bovida ceilings, circular stair case, finished stone work and the views from every room. Oh, what a memorable family vacation!

“Truly a top notch Villa and Staff”

We visited the Villa to celebrate my daughter's birthday with family and friends and found the Villa to be even more beautiful then it's pictures. The staff is so very attentive and quite friendly, the meals prepared were very good and they were there for your every need. The location is great for day adventures and the Villa is perfect for those like myself who saw no reason to leave and enjoyed a peaceful stay on a most beautiful Bay. There are enough little nooks and gathering places that you can even get some nice alone time if need be, the wifi is good enough to keep up on any emails and business you might have to take care of and also some entertainment if you chose. I have to say I partly chose this Villa from reviews of the beds which in Mexico can be an issue, I was not disappointed these beds are very, very comfortable. Chris is a astute owner and has created a wonderful vacation Villa. We had very good luck renting 2 quality vehicles from Concord Car Rental in Cancun and I would recommend them as well.

“Villa Vidorra is a luxurious, relaxing and secluded tropical getaway that is simply breathtaking.”
Reviewed 28 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our extended family of six, including children ages 6 and 8, stayed at Villa Vidorra on May 3-10. We were greated with a smiling staff and fresh margaritas at the door of this gorgeous villa after a long day of traveling, and we settled in with one of many fabulous dinners cooked by Philippe and Chef Leo. The villa is perfect in every way -- luxurious surroundings, first-class decor (an onyx tub!), a fabulous staff that anticipates your every need, meticulous housekeeping, responsive and helpful owners and top-notch meals that my picky children ate with abandon. Soliman Bay is a breathtaking and secluded bay that was perfect for our entire family. We enjoyed the SUP, kayaks, snorkeling, swimming in the pool and ocean, and lounging on the lawn chairs, with hardly any other people in sight. We found we didn't need to venture out much, as Villa Vidorra and Soliman Bay offered everything that we were looking for on our vacation. I highly recommend it.

This was our family vacation including Grandma, two families and 4 grandchildren, ages 8-11. It was the perfect place for us! The pool was wonderful; the kids were in swimming whenever they weren't snorkeling or kayaking on the bay. So many places to lounge and relax! We loved the stunning landscaping. Every detail in the home was beyond our expectations. We became spoiled right away with the included Chef and staff. There is always plenty of fresh purified water available. The location was perfect for our planned adventures which were all very close by. It is about a 1 hr., 15 min. drive from the Cancun airport. We had no problems or delays with our two rental vehicles, and we were given very good driving directions to the Villa. We all feel that this was our best vacation ever!
