Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Tulum - Villa Tres Delfines

4 air conditioned bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

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.

Wonderful place to escape for a week

  • 5 of 5

In mid-November, 2014, my husband and I took our two adult sons, their respective wife and girlfriend, and our 18 month-old granddaughter to Mexico to stay at Tres Defines for a week. We have travelled to the Maya Riviera for the past 12 years and like to try new accommodations. Tres Delfines did not disappoint! The food and drinks waiting for us when we arrived were a welcomed treat. The size of the house, with four bedrooms and three separate bathrooms offered every couple privacy. When we spent time altogether, the upstairs veranda and the living room were spacious enough.

Our housekeepers, Olivia and her husband Cristabol, were kind and helpful. They kept the house very clean. Most important to Olivia was that none of us got sick. She showed us where to shop and how to disinfect our fruits and vegetables. She made some wonderful meals as well. Several other people who oversee Tres Delfines introduced themselves on the first day. Some of them spoke fluent English. This was greatly appreciated on an evening when the water cistern ran dry. Not thirty minutes after a phone call to one of them, a truck arrived to replenish the tank; on a Sunday evening, no less! Also, Arul, the owner, was quick and most informative when responding to all our pre-vacation inquiries.

For the most part, we had no trouble with Internet access; the service was typical for the area. Beach access is rocky (wear water walkers) but the water is shallow for quite a ways out so swimming is fun and delightful. Though there is much to do in the area, our favorite activity was hanging out at our own beach and eating Olivia’s cooking at night.

Another reviewer objected to the fact that Olivia was in the house so much. She did, indeed, spend hours in the house every day, going about her business of cleaning and cooking. In addition to being a warm and lovely human being, she was unobtrusive and always accommodating. We welcomed her presence.

We had so much fun staying here!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this house. Tulum is amazing and this place made it even better. Olivia and Cristobol were awesome. Olivia made tamales one night for us and they were so good! We snorkeled everyday in the bay. I highly recommend Tres Dolphines!!

Nice home with problems, for us anyway...

  • 3 of 5

A nice home for groups or families. Many amenities. The pool is wonderful! Has a shallow end. Nice patio off of the living area for lounging & eating. Olivia is a wonderful cook & house is spotless. Nice selection of books & games. Very rocky for many yards out, not for swimming.

Major problems with the internet, not available at all the first 2 days. Virtually unusable the entire stay. Being in touch w/home and work is a necessity for us. We were given a phone number for the house but no one was able to get through to us, so we have no idea if the phone even works in the house.

The book provided for the house has outdated information. The air conditioning upstairs was worthless. And the worst was that we had absolutely no privacy at this home. The house keeper was there from 7:30-8 until 3-4 in the afternoon. Everyday. She was in/out all day and never once knocked when entering. She would just walk in. We never felt like the house was ours. We felt we had to leave every day or stay in the pool, just to have any privacy.

There was just two of us. We used one bedroom of the four. We didn't make a mess beyond a few dishes and we reused towels. The house is hot enough without a washer/dryer running 8 hours. Again, she was a nice person, a great cook & kept the house spotless but… We would not return to this house again because of the privacy issues & internet problems. If these issues are not a problem for you, you would probably enjoy this house.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, We were very distressed to learn of the issues you had while staying at Villa Tres Delfines. Our goal is to ensure you have the vacation of your dreams. Our staff is there to serve you, whether that means attentive service or being left alone. We only ask that you communicate your preferences to the staff, the manager or me (the owner), so that the staff can meet your expectations. We pride ourselves in a spotlessly clean and well-maintained villa. However, in the salty sea air, on occasion, things do break. We have repairmen and service people on call who can fix any issue within hours, but they cannot address a problem unless they are made aware of it. Our cell phone and email contact information is in your welcome packet. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time, day or night. We want your vacation to be perfect. If something is not right, let us know -- we will make it right for you.

AWESOME!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The only negative for my family is that we didn't stay long enough. The house, beach, pool and caretakers were fabulous. Our group consisted of my daughter and myself along with my 2 sons and their girlfriends and the accommodations fit all of our needs to a tee. Olivia and Cristobol were the sweetest caretakers providing service everyday along with great margaritas and food. They were amazing as was the snorkeling and just hanging out in the hammocks. The actual house is very well maintained and very clean and the bedrooms are air-conditioned which we definitely needed. We ate at several great places ( Zuma, La-Zebra to name a few) but Olivia's food is fabulous. We will definitely choose this piece of paradise for our next trip and recommend it to anyone looking for a very relaxing vacation while experiencing the culture that Tulum offers. Thank you Arul for all of your assistance and if you ever decide to sell the house, let me know!!!!!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We were two families with young children (2-5 yrs) and stayed for a week. The house was phenomenal. Great location right on the beach, with fantastic views. Kids loved the pool right in the front. Adults loved taking the kayas into the bay and snorkeling the reef. The setting was quiet, serene and peaceful. (if you are looking for powerboats, jet-skis, loud club music, etc. this is not the place for you) Care takers (Olivia and Cristobal) took very good care of us, cleaning the house daily, tending to the beach and property etc. Olivia cooked for us a few nights and they were best meals we had on the entire trip. Overall one of the best beach vacations we've ever had.

Fabulous Isn't Even Close!

  • 5 of 5

This is about as perfect a beachfront rental property as you will find anywhere. There were six of us: my wife and I, our son and his wife and their two daughters. Everyone had things to do all day every day. The difficulty was that most of us wanted to spend full time at the house, snorkeling or beaching or reading by the pool. But there are sights close by as well: the Tulum City archeological park, the cenotes for snorkeling (we went to the Dos Ojos Cenote, just a half mile north of the entrance road to the house), Akumal which had fabulous snorkeling plus restaurants on the water for lunch and more. We ate "at home" two of the nights with Olivia, the housekeeper, cooking two different main dishes each night. (And we had great fun shopping with Olivia, picking fresh-from-the-ocean seafood from local suppliers - not the supermarkets!) Everything in the house is kept very clean, and the weather was perfect six of seven days. The owner Arul is very helpful on the phone ahead of time. I can't recommend this too highly!
