“Perfection in Paradise”
Reviewed 22 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

I don't even think it's possible to put into words the amazing time my friends and I had in Tulum at Villa Soliman. We immediately fell in love with the Villa which is even more gorgeous than the photos. We only used 4 of the bedrooms and was still spacious and so lovely. The separate rooms/terraces on each floor allow for privacy if desired, including a secondary kitchen on the second floor. I instantly noticed the high quality structure and decor of the Villa...everything from the most comfortable beds, the superior quality wood doors and tables, to the hand selected, decorative photos with custom made driftwood frames. The attention to detail is beyond evident. The staff who cleaned every day are so pleasant and considerate, and also called taxis for us, etc. when we requested.

The Villa is situated on a breathtakingly beautiful and serene bay, literally just steps from the water. The Villa provides kayaks, paddle boards and snorkel gear so plenty of activities that kept us entertained...and we all especially appreciated the privacy of the white sand beach. There's an amazing boutique hotel (Jashita) just a few min from the Villa, so we were able to enjoy multiple meals at the fantastic restaurant there. We also took a quick and easy cab ride into Tulum a few times for dinners. Next time, we'll definitely hire the private chef so we can enjoy outdoor dinners right on the beach at the Villa.

And last but definitely not least, our host Max went beyond the call of duty to ensure that we had everything we wanted: he made multiple dinner reservations for us, spa appts, and even picked up a Bday cake for me! He was always accessible during our stay, and checked in with us daily to see if there was anything additional he could do for us -- we felt completely taken care of.

My friends and I are incredibly fortunate to frequently travel over all parts of the globe and stay in luxury accommodations, and we agree that Villa Soliman surpassed all expectations. This was my first trip to Tulum and I'd been eyeing a few other places before I ultimately chose Villa Soliman, and now I know that for future trips this is the only place that I'll want to book. I'm already planning our next trip back...

“A beautiful beach house for a beautiful week”
Reviewed 11 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The Villa Soliman was absolutely perfect for our week in Tulum.

The house is an easy drive from Cancun, in a small cluster of houses along the edge of a beautiful bay just outside Tulum. The beach is gorgeous, and the breeze of the bay was enough to prevent any bugs.

We loved being able to have breakfast under the palms and walk right out onto the sand. The bedrooms are really beautiful - all with ocean views - and the multiple living and dining areas made it easy were super convenient.

We loved the chef service recommended with the house as well.

In fact, that only downside was a bunch of seaweed that washed ashore halfway through our week in Tulum, but it was clear from everyone's reactions that that was very unusual.

I would highly recommend the Villa Soliman

“Fantastic House, Location, Host!”
Reviewed 5 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The title of the review captures it all. The house is fantastic and great for large groups. We had a group of 9 (two families with 5 kids, all under age 10) and the house was perfect for us. Great, high end accommodations and amazing outdoor setup.

Soliman Bay is perfect - a quiet setting 10 minutes north of Tulum. Protected by the reef, the waters are calm (unlike the beach in Tulum), with great snorkeling right off the beach in front of the house. The Hotel Jashita is a short walk down the beach and is a really cool little boutique hotel through which you can arrange all kinds of activities (snorkeling, diving, fishing, spa treatments, tours, etc.) and it also has a great restaurant and bar in a great setting if you feel like just grabbing a drink and taking in the killer view.

Max (the host at the house), is the best. Very attentive and helpful and knows the local scene well and will have lots of great recommendations for activities, restaurants, etc. depending on what your group wants to do.

We have rented plenty of houses in tropical locations and loved this house, location and staff. We would count ourselves very fortunate to be able to stay at Villa Soliman again!

“A fantastic vacation for the whole family.”
Reviewed 13 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We recently had the pleasure of staying at Villa Soliman for a family vacation. The villa was absolutely beautiful. The staff were extremely friendly and kept the property immaculate both inside and out. We would absolutely come back and recommend it to anyone looking to spend a relaxing vacation in Tulum.

“Luxurious tranquility”
Reviewed 9 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

I though that the house was absolutely amazing. We had 12 people and it was able to accommodate us comfortably. The bedrooms, bathrooms and layout of the house was perfect. The beach and pool were fabulous. I can't say enough about the cleaning staff and caretakers that were on location. It felt like you were getting all of the service of a major Hotel without dealing with the crowds. It was also above and beyond that Kayaks and paddle-boards were provided.

The only improvement areas were that the stove and refrigerator were not that powerful.

The property is a 10-15 minute drive from the main strip which was a bit inconvenient at times but very manageable.

“Stunning Villa, Gorgeous beach, Lots of Activities”
Reviewed 9 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This trip was absolutely fantastic. It was everything you want for a beach getaway. the staff was incredible, and the house was furnished as if it was a 5 star resort. It was perfect for a big group (we had 11 people) because the house was sectioned off into 3 different living areas (complete with two kitchens).

The house comes stocked with snorkel gear, kayaks, and a paddle board, so there were always activities to do. There is THE BEST lunch place at the other end of the cove (a 15 minute walk), and a 5 star boutique hotel on the other side- needless to say, there are a few options for lunch/dinner/spa/massages within a 10 minute walk from the house.

The house is a quick cab ride from the actual town of Tulum, but this house was perfect if you want to relax and lounge by day, and go into town at night.

Everything was great about our stay at Villa Soliman. The house and service was extremely well run and professional. Max was great to work with as well. Our chef was amazing and wowed us with meals the entire week. This is the best place to stay in Soliman Bay and we'll be coming back, no doubt!!!
