About the property

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.

Tres Delfines was everything we had hoped for and more!

  • 5 of 5

The comments of previous visitors and the pictures of the property, inside and out, are right on! We loved the location, so close to Tulum and Akumal - groceries, fun restaurants and bars, an exciting vibe and beautiful beaches. The Tres Defines property was just amazing. Three steps out the back door and your feet are in the sand. Your personal beach with a beautiful view of Solomon bay in front of you, with Snorkeling and Kayaking directly off your beach was so great. The bedrooms were large, private and very comfortable. My wife and I stayed in the second floor master bedroom that included a large covered outdoor area with views of the ocean and private lounging area. We took Arul's suggestion to take advantage of the onsite Chef services for three of our nights (including the arrival night and night before departure). Bere and Wes prepared fantastic meals and service for us at very reasonable prices and were such a pleasure to be a special part of making our vacation amazing. We will definitely return to Tres Delfines in the future for bringing our family together again. As another visitor noted, the one thing that was not obvious from the pictures was the the pool is not on the beach side of the house, but rather on the road side of the house. It was not a big deal at all, but just fyi so that you aren't disappointed. Thank you Arul and your staff for sharing your beautiful beachfront villa with us and making our stay special!! Bill and Kim

We had a wonderful stay!!

  • 4 of 5

We just recently returned from our stay at Tres Delfines. I can only wish now that we had never left!!

The house worked out perfectly for our needs.

It was clean and bright. Everything just as it should be.

The caretaker Cristobal was very helpful and kind!

The beach was clean and the water was very inviting. There are lots of rocks and coral so be careful!! Stingrays hurt a lot!!

It is best to use the kayaks provided to go out beyond the rocks. Or wear reef shoes!! Be careful and all will be fine..

We highly recommend this lovely home for an incredible vacation!!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful vacation here. The house is right on the beach and ideally located 15 minutes from Tulum. We loved using the kayak's and found the best snorkeling in front of the house. My son and I saw a turtle which was a highlight for both of us. The staff are all great. Arul was helpful and available. The house is easily big enough for two families. My boys loved the hammocks during the day and looking at the stars on the roof at night.

We've rented a number of houses in different warm climates and this was the best one we've rented. Would definitely go back.

Amazing! Can't say enough good things!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been to Central America on many occasions. Aside from one time in a Costa Rican guesthouse off the beaten path, we often find ourselves in the mega resorts. Never again! When I first saw this place on AirBnB I didn't think it was real. After actually spending the entire week there...I still can't believe it was real. The pictures do not do it justice. It is absolutely amazing!

1. The villa sits on a private bay lined with villas. You have a perfect amount of beach front and not on top of your neighbors (the plot next door is empty and just vegetation). The area is safe. The bay is protected by a barrier reef so the water is calm compared to Tulum. It is beautiful and secluded.

2. The staff (Christobal and Bere..who was subbing for Olivia) was amazing. They kept the place spotless and were not intrusive at all! We loved having them around. Bere's cooking was unreal. We took advantage of it all but 2 nights...also first time in Central America not getting sick from the food. Unbelievable perk! They don't speak fluent English but it's very easy to communicate with them. No need to speak Spanish..

3. You have everything right outside your front or backdoor. A pool perfect for a dip or just hanging out. A perfect beach for sun bathing, reading, paddle ball, hanging out, etc. Amazing water. Snorkeling around reefs that sit a hundred yards away from your beach (get there via the 3 2 person kayaks Arul provides). We went to Tulum one time and decided never to leave the house again.

4. You are 10 - 15 minutes from Tulum and a large modern grocery store (think mini-Walmart). There is no need to speak Spanish there. Navigating the grocery store is a piece of cake and has everything...super cheap too!

5. Arul is a great host. He provides tons of information and is very quick to answer questions. I was very impressed. For example, our arrival was delayed, but Arul made sure food was ready for us as we arrived. Incredible.

I really just can't say enough about this place. We hope to go back many times in the future. I think I may be the first AirBnB review. For more reviews look up Tres Delfines or Arul on Home Away.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Four of us stayed for 5 days recently. The house was perfect! Bernice ensured that the home was tidy every day, shopped for us, and cooked 3 dinners and a couple of breakfasts. We enjoyed every one and our lack of Spanish (and her lack of English) was never an issue - google translate worked just fine! The beach is gorgeous and Cristobal rakes it every single morning. It's a ride from the Cancun airport, so be prepared for that. You do need a car. We ate out a couple of times, both local restaurants, both great and inexpensive by US standards. Be forewarned that it does take a long time for the water temp in the showers to change from cold to warm. I cannot wait to return!

The perfect place to stay on Soliman Bay

  • 5 of 5

We just finished up a fantastic week at Villa Tres Delfines. Everything was great: the views from the roof deck, the wonderful porch, the cool pool, the well-equipped kitchen and especially the very nice caretakers, Cristobal and Olivia. There was plenty of room for four couples traveling together. Upkeep and cleanliness were good as well. We had enough room for a dinner for 12 when our friends staying down the beach joined us. Olivia and her niece cooked one dinner and one breakfast for us and both were delicious. We also had Daveed Placencia of DaveedChefService.com and prepare 2 dinners for us. He has done this for us on Soliman Bay in the past and he is awesome. Chamico's down the beach is a super place for ceviche or fried fresh fish, open for lunch only until around 5 p.m. You might also try the restaurant at the Jashita Inn at the other end of the beach. It is a little pricey but the fresh pasta and Italian leaning menu are very good. If you rent a car, you can drive into Tulum for take-out from El Pollo Branco. This place, their grilled chickens and the guys that run it are so awesome we went there twice. Very highly recommended, don't miss it.

The ladies received massages from Lucia one morning, who they liked her a lot. She was recommended in the TD info book and by our friends down the beach. She is Italian and speaks several languages, I guess.

Two of us went scuba diving with Akumal Dive Center (not to be confused with Akumal Dive Shop). Mario was super and so were the dives. You can do two dives from 50 to 60 minutes each for under $80. They use smaller boats which keeps the groups small.

I highly recommend this villa for families and couples traveling together. Oh, and the owner, Arul, is easy to work with and attentive.

Thank you, Arul!
