“Luxury on Tankah Bay”
Villa Orquidea is nothing short of marvelous. The property is magnificent, with finishes of the highest quality, and furnishings to match. No detail has been overlooked. Jose attended to our every need, despite the fact that his wife Marisol was staying with her mother in Akumal, in anticipation of the imminent birth of their second child. Jose and sister Anna prepared fabulous dinners and breakfasts. Don't miss the chiles rellenos, and the huevos rancheros. Jose's Mexican Flag after dinner drink is a must do! Colorful, flamboyant, fun, and tasty. We kayaked out to the reef every day, where the snorkeling was some of the best we've ever experienced. All manner of colorful tropical fish; even a sea turtle, langosta, and several nurse sharks. Large schools of small fish (chub?), 1,000 or more at a time. With pleasant security personnel unobtrusively keeping an eye on things at night, we always felt safe. We enjoyed pizza and Caribbean Fish at the Blue Sky, where Leo runs a great restaurant. Tankah Bay is a beautiful, quiet setting. No high rises or mega resorts. Perfect! Direct access into the water is difficult, and you'll want sturdy Tevas, Keens, or surf shoes for beach walking. The beach is not really a walking beach, though we did walk all the way down to Dreams. Day trips to Akumal Bay, the Tulum ruins, and the Tulum beaches provided some nice variety; and we were always happy to return to our haven on Tankah Bay. I would strongly recommend Villa Orquidea to anyone who is seeking a luxury, beach front vacation, with all the amenities of home.
“Escape to Paradise”
Villa Orquidea is a perfect escape from the hussle & bussle of many popular vacation destinations -- a true hidden paradise! The villa is close enough to many exciting excursions, but also allows for total relaxation if that's what you need.
“Christmas Orquieda 2011”
Wonderful caretakers.Wonderful caretakers again. Internet was a problem. Great new house designed very well. Very private.
“Nice and relaxing”
We had a great time. It went mostly very well. I would have rated it higher if the service had been more professional. However, being a remote beach area in Mexico, I should have adjusted my expectations accordingly. All in all, we enjoyed our vacation very much and the house was wonderful.
“Family Vacation and Celebration”
The family of twelve had a great time. The Casitas were also used. The house was well equipped to entertain the group. The location was great for water activites and adventures. We did a lot of the cooking and enjoyed shopping in Tulum and Aukmal.
“thrilled with Orquidea”
We loved our stay!!Your home is truly wonderful. We traveled with my 93 year old father and 89 year old mother who found it totally comfortable relaxing and enjoyable. My 30 year old and 25 year old children loved staying in their own private quarters in the casita. The home's design, layout and furnishings are super lovely and very comfortable..bedding , linens ,tableware ,furniture. First class all the way. Loved the cross ventilation in the interior, the views, just everything was terrific!!! Thank you so much. Just to give you room for improvement..we did have trouble with the internet more often than not. my folks were disappointed that you lost dish network as they were planning on watching the packer game..but my brother had brought Cd's down so we were able to entertain ourselves that way when in need of our tv fix. Jose and maria were lovely and made some tasty Mexican lunches for us . it was great having the maid service which usually doesn't come with a rental home , in my experience. I have visited the area before but can confirm for new guests to the area -there is much much to do in the mayan Riviera and one never needs to travel more than 30 minutes from the house to take it all in! Happy new year and thank you for sharing your wonderful home with us. we will have great memories of our vacation at villa oquidea!!
this is a very beautiful and exceedingly comfortable new home that has every amenity . it is a total delight to stay in. the traveller should know it is down a bumpy gravel road(that runs along tankah bay (where other luxury homes are located). a reef surrounds the bay so entrance to water for swimming is not ideal but typical for Akumal and Soliman Bay. This location holds much interest for those who want to kayak, snorkel and dive or explore nearby ruins, adventure and eco-parks or sunbathe on the flawless beaches of tulum. I doubt there is a more wonderful home base from which to enjoy the many pleasures of the mayan riviera than villa orquidea!
Please read these as areas the owner could improve - not criticisms (we did enjoy the tripa and the property: Hot water was only warm. asked Jose to turn up but little change Kitchen knives way too dull for any cooking Dogs barked all night on several days. kept several in our party awake Complementary meals and cooking services not clear. Jose does not understand or explain well. ( we missed the complementary meal ) On a positive note the bedding, towels, cleanliness were all excellent.
Fantastic house in a wonderful location with (almost) everything you could possibly need provided. The only things missing were a dishwasher and snorkeling equipment which is a must to enjoy the undersea life in the bay and on the reef near the house. The house was not ready when we arrived (some confusion over dates), but the on-site staff quickly remedied that situation. Occasional problems (wi-fi and safe combination setting) were quickly resolved. Expect the occasional power outage - normal for the region. Close to wonderful beaches at Tulum and in Sian Ka'an Biosphere. Overall, very highly recommended.
