“Great place to stay, would definitely recommend it!”
Reviewed 6 July 2011

We stayed here for 3 nights and would highly recommend it. It is tucked away in its own private gardens and feels like a little oasis away from the rest of the overdeveloped Riviera Maya. It was spotlessly clean, had a lovely little pool and our hostess Sylvia was extremely helpful, even ordering pizza for us one night. It was also nice to have our own little kitchen and terrace. You definitely need a car to stay here though if you want to get around to Akumal beach etc.

I completely agree with all the positive comments said before me. This accommodation was one of my favourites so far after 3 months of traveling Latin America. The units are beautiful and kept clean and well maintained. The grounds truly are a little oasis to comd home to. Sylvia was a lovely host and so helpful. Loved the dogs, so gorgeous, but if you arn't a dog person there's nothing to worry about as they keep to themselves. The short journey into town is easy. Not hesitations in recommending this place

My fiance and I stayed with Denis and Sylvia for about a week in April. They were so wonderful and hospitable. They helped us rent a car, suggested places to eat, made sure we knew where we were going, recommended the best cenotes to visit, and offered help that most B&B owners probably would not! Sylvia even helped us order a pizza for delivery! Their rooms are clean and well maintained. The rooms come with a fridge stocked with bread and jam, dishes, silverware, toaster, coffee maker and ground coffee, salt, and sugar. The staff were so friendly and helpful, too.
Their many animals were so well behaved and very friendly. I played fetch with their big dog Showa, also known as Scooby-doo. Their cats would accompany us around their beautiful garden. The grounds were awesome and filled with tropical plants, birds, and lizards. There is a nice little pool for cooling off and for sunbathing.

We used their outdoor BBQ one night which was wonderful. They have a long picnic table for eating outside and a large charcoal grill to use for a very reasonable fee.

For my fiance and I, this place was perfect. We live on different continents right now, so we wanted our vacation to be special and relaxing and quiet, where we could see some beautiful things and enjoy our time together. Denis and Sylvia's B&B was absolutely perfect. If we ever go back to Mexico, I would love to stay here again! Make sure you rent a car so that you can take full advantage of this beautiful part of Mexico.

We started our trip in Mexico here and were spoiled by the full kitchen and quiet A/C!! We loved that there were pets hanging out it made it feel like home, its tucked away on a gravel road which was surprisingly easy to find, and Sylvia was so kind and helpful. They stocked the fridge with food and snacks, had pots and pans for cooking and a great yard for star gazing. Would definitely recommend a stay here if you like a private rustic home-like feel for a great price.

Dennis & Sylvia are a beautiful couple. They are such delightful, serviceable, and knowlegeable host and hostess. They will ensure that your stay with them is comfortable, and available for assistance. They will let you know how to contact them if they are briefly away from the property. The property is beautiful, simple, quaint, and very romantic.

My husband and I spent our August week at their B&B with beautifully manicured and landscaped gardens (it gets more beautiful as the plants reach to their maturity); with a wonderful housekeeper to keep your room cleaned everyday while we were away exploring the nearby cenotes, Maya ruins, "Corona commercial" looking stunning beaches--Akumal Bay is a beautiful beach area about 2.5 - 3.0 kilometers away; and several areas to snorkel in. We enjoyed the day and nocturnal native creatures in the surrounding jungle-,not to be alarmed, they are more scared of you. (Hee-Hee). Beautiful birds!! It's perfect for couples, very romantic, tranquil, peaceful and beautiful. Summertime can be a rainy period, you can still venture out- it's refreshing from the heat of the sun. There are many cenotes in the surrounding areas to cool off in, and great hidden tourist treasures in the Akumal beach area and surrounding areas.

One of our highlights is when Sylvia reserved for us a private cabana at a small private beach hotel resort, El Cielo, on the day of our 2nd anniversary. That beach is stunning and yet remote and not touristy. My husband was fell sick that day, but Sylvia was very generous is providing medicinal tablets she had at hand. I offered to reimburse her for the pills, but it was out of her kindness. She and Dennis want your stay to be pleasant--they care!

It's obvious that the couple has put a lot of work into their property to make it beautiful for them, and for others, like us, to enjoy. If you're into the comfort of a resort hotel, this place is not the Ritz Carlton. This place is comfortable, quiet, and cozy for those who want to come home each day into a clean comfortable room after a long day of exploration and adventure. It's simple, quaint, exotic, and romantic--take advantage of their beautiful pool!!

Jack and I would love to come again, and highly recommend for anyone who's looking for a complete escape from the city and stress.

If you go, respect your host and hostess, and respect their love of labor. Enjoy!!

P.S. Worried about the bugs? Don't worry!! Dennis and Sylvia have everything you need in case you get freaked out by one. Their housekeeping staff ensures that your room is free of them.

Room Tip: Dennis and Sylvia are wonderful with travel tips.
