About the property

Villa Tres Delfines is a beachfront villa located on the gorgeous sandy beach of Soliman Bay. Set in spacious, beautifully landscaped tropical gardens, this is the perfect get away with friends or family. Enjoy snorkelling and kayaking in the calm, protected, blue waters of the bay, take in the magnificent views of the Caribbean and the jungle from our roof decks, fly a kite, build a sand castle, walk the perfect crescent shaped beach, watch the pelicans overhead, the iguanas sunning on the rocks, or just relax in one of the hammocks. Nearby are spectacular Mayan ruins, cenotes (watery caves unique to the area), jungle adventures, scuba diving, and fishing, as well as restaurants and shopping in the quaint town of Tulum (about 10 minutes away). The villa includes daily maid service, satelite TV, Internet access, kayaks and an optional chef service.

Soliman Bay is a perfect crescent shaped bay, with a lovely sandy beach, calm protected waters, and fantastic coral reefs for snorkelling. The bay is a secure gated community of private homes, so you will have the beach to yourself.

Villa Tres Delfines has a spacious open-plan living, dining and kitchen area. In the living room is a flat-screen TV, with Sky TV, DVD player and VCR. There is also a music system, plenty of books, guidebooks and games. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, utensils, range/oven, fridge, micro etc.

On the main floor are 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. All bedrooms have sliding doors leading out to beachfront palapa patios. Upstairs is a huge master suite with a spacious 180 degree view of the bay. The suite leads out onto a deck with a palapa, outdoor seating area and hammock. Finally on the roof is an observation deck with a 360 degree view of ocean, beach, mangroves and the sunset.

Daily housekeeping is included in the rental. Optional chef service is available. Olivia (the cook) prepares delicious Mexican, Guatemalan and American food.

Two kayaks are provided with paddles and life jackets, including youth sizes. You can kayak out to protected reefs in the bay for great snorkelling, or snorkel from the beach. For the kids we also have sand toys, buckets and shovels.

Our resident iguana Spiky is usually sunning himself above the waterfall cascading into the pool. In the gardens nearby is an aviary. Our kids love to feed the birds.

Location, location, location. Private beach.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing views, as right on the calm water of Soliman Bay. Back door 50 feet from water. House spacious, clean and functional. Near Tulum, but far enough away. Felt safe entire stay. Internet in region unreliable, as it only worked about 20% of time, which I preferred, because I wanted an unplugged family vacation. Unexpected seagrass bloom and surprise storm was frustrating, but owner was responsive in hiring folks to clean the beach daily, unlike some other homes in the area. Owner very responsive to all inquiries. Kayaks were great. Would stay again.

Peaceful and Great House

  • 5 of 5

We were a family party of 7 (no children) that were looking for a quiet and peaceful place to stay. We would definitely stay here again. The layout of the house is great. The master bedroom is upstairs and is quite big and private and faces the ocean. Two of downstairs bedrooms also face the ocean. Only the bedroom with the twin beds does not. There is plenty of privacy and room for everyone inside and outside the house. One thing we also liked is that there is quite a bit of shade if desired. AC works great in all rooms, plumbing great, appliances great (stove moody at times), water temp great, towels great and beds great. Life jackets of different sizes and kayaks are there for your use. Some board games as well. Welcome fruit and beer provided. Big 5 gallon distilled water jug provided and is refilled every day if needed. Plenty of dishes and glasses. Blender for smoothies available. Overall, a VERY relaxing house!

Mari, the housekeeper is there if you want her or not if you don't. Just let her know and she is accommodating. Ask for the recycling bin.

Things to keep in mind - you need a rental car (unless you plan on public transportation). The house is set in quite a bit from the main road and is a dirt road (about 5 minute drive). Beach is very, very rocky BUT if you walk left on beach until you reach Jashita hotel they have removed the rocks from beach and it is a swim-able area. (10-15 minute walk). Internet is not good. One member tried using both the Wifi and his personal data usage and both were not great. This was is not an issue for most of us, as vacations are meant to disconnect from technology. It was a breath of fresh air in my opinion. Shampoo, conditioners, body lotions are not provided only hand and shower bar soap so bring your own. No dish washer, but Mari can do them.

There was some seaweed but was being picked up by some workers. They did the best they could which was appreciated. Pretty much this was throughout the whole area of Cancun down to Tulum - not a big deal to us as we still enjoyed the beach.

Overall, we loved the house, loved the peacefulness, loved the area and would 100% recommend! We had a great stay and thank the owner for being very responsive to our questions and having great staff managing the property.

Our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house had a perfect layout for us. We had five teenagers with us, and we had plenty of room. The pool was very cool. We had everything in the house we needed to be able to cook some meals. The caretakers of the house were very nice and hard working. The meal she cooked for us was very good. We were very pleased with the house.

Comfortable home and lovely setting. Chef and staff were superb.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week- sun, tropical breezes, delicious meals prepared by Marie. We used the kayaks as suggested(cannot tie up at buoy without line to tie!)! Reef was beautiful. Lots of sea grass on beach although Willem tried hard to clear it. House size was perfect for us- five adults and two small children.

Great home with private beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our week at the beach house. Maria made dishes for us to eat each day that were authentic and fantastic. The view, layout of the house, etc. were perfect for my group. I had read some reviews that critiqued the noise from the home construction next door and I have to say that was minimal at best. When you open the sliding door to the beach side you have a wonderful sound of the ocean and the palms swaying in the wind. I don't think any of us even noticed any construction noise at all. This house and Soliman Bay are a gem if you want a getaway. Arul was awesome and responsive and helped me with getting a driver and the house staff was top notch. Loved our time here just wished it was longer.
