About Roberta Hunter
In 2004, while on a 2 week vacation into the Yucatan, we chose Xcalak as an out of the way destination to relax and enjoy snorkeling and diving, our 2 favorite activities. That was the beginning of an exciting and enriching adventure that we enjoy sharing with guests who return year after year. Two months of every year we live at the Inn and enjoy the tropical breezes and calm, clear waters within the protective reef. We love our spacious, airy, 2 bedroom suites nestled close to the gently lapping waves that are only 60 feet from our porch. We hope to share our tropical paradise with you and have taken great pleasure in detailing the rooms with local Mayan arts and textiles.

Why Roberta Hunter chose Xcalak
We invested in this Villa because of the obvious beauty of the area and friendliness of its local people. The tranquility and its seclusion allows us the slowed down pace we need between our busy lives in the wine country of northern California. The rest and relaxation we experience while reading, snorkeling, diving and just hanging out in a swinging hammock is all the reasons why we enjoy this special retreat and hope you will too.

Beautiful, clean, great place to stay
The house is beautiful and spacious . Temperature was perfect. It was spotlessly clean. There is a full time caretaker and his family that clean the beach daily. The snorkeling was very good. Coral was scattered with sandy areas in between and a good amount of fish. The water clear. The breezes were constant but welcome, occasionally too breezy, not usually. The road coming in is full of holes so be prepared for a slow ride. Try to arrive while it is still light out. We liked eating at cocos. There isn't much in the town but a few restaurants, a couple tiny stores, a lot of holes in the roads. No one trying to sell you junk. It's much nicer up at Coral beach garden. Beds were good.
Food trucks come up the road and to the house 3-4 times /week.
