Nearby are spectacular Mayan ruins, world famous 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, satellite 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 snorkeling. 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 and micro.

On the main floor are 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. All bedrooms have sliding doors leading out to beachfront covered patios. Upstairs is a huge master suite with a spectacular 180 degree view of the bay. The suite leads out onto a deck with a covered 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. The cook prepares delicious Mexican and American food.

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

The villa has it's own private pool with a waterfall cascading down into the water, and surrounded by a sun-deck with loungers. A perfect place to catch some sun, work on a tan or enjoy the sunset. Our resident iguana Spiky is usually sunning himself above the waterfall cascading into the pool.

Definitely recommend!

Wonderful place to stay. Very relaxing, hated to leave. Quiet area, private beach front, the caretakers and owner work extremely hard to ensure your stay is superb. So much better than a resort!

Great house, private beach but seaweed is a downside

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Tres Delfines. The house was the perfect size for our family of six. The airconditioned rooms were great and the breezes off the ocean cooled the shared living area perfectly. There are many hammocks, lounge chairs, and spaces to hang out. The pool is smaller than expected but that did not stop our family from using it every day, the kids especially enjoyed it.

The only downside to staying at Tres Delfines was the seaweed issue that is currently plaguing the area. William, the groundskeeper, has a crew that works every day to clear the seaweed, but it is an endless battle. We could not walk directly out and enter the water to swim in front of the property, this was a disappointment for us. We expected to swim and play in the ocean a lot more than we did, but the seaweed was so thick, a bit smelly and undesirable to walk through.

It is important to note that the caretakers who stay on the property are fantastic! Mari cooked us a delicious meal upon arrival by our request. She is respectful of your timing for her daily cleaning and kept the house spotless. In addition to seaweed clearing, William rakes the white sand every day, just like the fancy hotels. If you need anything they are ready to help, as long as you speak Spanish, which we did. They are the gems of the property!

Finally, the owner Arul is extremely helpful and responds to questions and problems very quickly. We really loved staying at his home and we know the seaweed problem is out of his control.

Hammocks, Sunrises, Pool Time, and Tacos under Palm Trees

  • 4 of 5

The following is a comprehensive review of the house with both positive and negative so that you can have a complete picture of this listing.

I will just start by saying ... we had the time of our lives in this area and visited ruins, explored many cenotes, and enjoyed the area.

The house itself is nice. It is on a private beach. We were disappointed to receive an email several days before that a storm had washed seaweed onto the beach front. We assumed that it was something that had just happened, but upon discussion with local residents it has been an issue since 2015. The seaweed has an odor, and unfortunately made walking straight into the bay an impossibility without steping over and thru

The bedrooms were nice and each had their own individual air conditioning unit. A storm did knock our unit out on the last day of our stay causing us to move the bed to avoid drips to our head. Bathrooms were clean, but upon returning we all had athlete's foot so I'd recommend flip flops.

My favorite features of the house far outweighed any of the negatives listed above ... sunrise on the rooftop, inviting relaxing hammocks, lots of chairs to view the water, seashells along the shore, walking to the taco stand for an afternoon beverage under wispy palm trees, and gorgeous landscaped (daily) white sandy beach. The charter fish company gave us a great day trip (3 hours) and they were fun to be around. They cooked the mahi-mahi we caught at the taco stand and even joined us for ceviche and fish sticks.

The pool was a little smaller than I thought it would be from the photos, but we still had an amazing time with the kids. We did donate some pool noodles for kids to play with. Bring some bug spray, but bugs were not a huge problem for us at the house, just the cenotes.

Kitchen was nice and had basic utensils but nothing extra. It did have a blender that we put to good use.

We utilized the grocery store in Tulum (about 10 minutes down the road). They have a nice selection of items including beverages. Checkout was a little long, so plan for a little extra time.

The dirt road to the house has lots of pot holes- plan for this.

I want to compliment William (the grounds keeper) and Olivia (the housekeeper) for going out of there way. When they found out we liked coconuts not only did they help us get some from the tree, but they cut and left three in the refrigerator pre-cut for us to enjoy each day of our stay. I can't say enough about how great they were

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.
