We absolutely loved this property - perfect location, great service, and fantastic food!
A great, great stay
We had a wonderful week at Sombras del Viento. The property is beautiful and was absolutely perfect for our group of five couples. The villa is large and upscale without feeling like a museum, so it makes it easy to relax. The beach is lovely, the pools were used often, and the staff were accommodating. The cooks made delicious meals and were helpful when members of our group had special dietary needs. Soliman Bay is a little remote so I would recommend renting a car; we spent a LOT of money in taxis during the week. We would love to come back, and would probably even bring the kids next time!
We recently visited Sombras Del Viento and spent a whole week there. This house was perfect for our extended family, 8 adults/8 children. The property is in the center of the cove, and after walking in both directions from there it is clear that the beach was the best one. With eight of us under one roof, we never felt crowded in the least bit...plenty of space on the beach, around the pool, and lounging areas of the house. The staff were fantastic--the cooks prepared all our meals, which were fantastic; the maintenance/cleaning staff were always present, and the concierge helped us with planning/organizing our needs. I highly recommend this location to anyone looking for any size of group wanting a place to your own with great personal attention and without the crowds of resorts. We are definitely returning to this house!
Wonderful staff, amazing location! A must see!!
Our time at Sombras Del Viento exceeded our expectations! You cannot beat the location and view! Above everything, the staff that cares for you is exceptional! Cannot say enough about the chefs and the amazing food they prepared for us each day. To be able to have that luxury and not spend our time cooking and cleaning was everything. And the house keeper and maintenance couple that live on site are the sweetest! We were there 10 nights and very well cared for.
Couple little things, our power was out when we arrived (not the property owners fault) for 24 hours.. we had dinner ready by candle light and had to use flashlights, a generator kept the water running. The screen door on the main floor to the patio is broken and difficult to open and shut (couple fingers were smashed). Our microwave broke the first day which was a little inconvenient for small things we would have liked to have it for and it was never repaired or replaced during our stay. Really though, I cannot even come up with anything negative to say.
If you are considering visiting here, do it!!
I am very happy to see that you had a great time at Sombras del Viento ! About the power outage, the day of your arrival a driver bumped into 3 electric pylons which provide electricity to the entire bay of Soliman. The staff of the house did everything to facilitate your installation and to compensate the inconveniences due to this short cut incident. It took almost 24 hours to the Mexican electric company the CFE to reestablish the service working all day and night on this.
In general, all the electronic appliances here suffer a lot in front of the ocean and from the tropical climate here we need to change the items very often. I am a little bit disappointed that the staff did not inform me about this and did not take action in time. Same for the mosquito net. I will ask our staff to put more attention to these details and all these small issues in order to have our guests a perfect vacation at Sombras del Viento !!!
We have rented houses in the Caribbean, Mexico and Hawaii. Our experience at Sombras del Viende was among the most memorable. The location in Soliman Bay provided excellent swimming, snorkeling and kayaking in calm waters. There is just the right balance of privacy and easy access to restaurants in the beach. The layout with two apartments as well as the spacious main house was ideal for our extended families. Laura provided exceptional service as concierge/manager, always available for advice, support and service requests. She even found a doctor to make a house call. The rest of the staff were excellent. Three meals a day were prepared by talented chefs in a remarkably clean kitchen. The extensive menu offered a wide range of Mexican and more familiar choices. We also appreciated excellent housekeeping and gardening services. Tulum itself is an easy drive as are the beach clubs in the hotel zone. We enjoyed the van service suggested by Laura to avoid renting a car at Cancun airport.
Came with a group of friends and had an amazing time! Thank you to the whole team!
