Our family of 15 enjoyed 7 spectacular days at Casa Yardena to celebrate the 50th wedding anniversary of our parents. From the housing, to the location to the food and staff we where delighted. I cannot overstate the joy of this time. It was truly a vacation of a lifetime and we plan on returning. The snorkeling in the bay was spectacular towards the reef and we even went for our first SCUBA diving adventure with our family about 20 minutes away. Also went our and swam with the whale sharks (long day). That said the best experience was simply relaxing on the beach at the house and enjoying meals at the Palapa on the the grounds.

We've just returned from a family reunion/vacation at Casa Yardena. In total there were 22 of us, including 4 teenagers, 2 young adults and my 80'year old mother-in-law. Although there are certainly many wonders in the area, our most memorable moments were coffee in the morning, a rousing ping-pong tournament, and relaxation throughout the day. We spent most of our time at the house with little sightseeing. The accommodations were comfortable and clean. The staff were outstanding with special kudos to the chef and his assistant. The food was outstanding and the margaritas delivered to the beach unexpectedly were above and beyond. The view from the house over the pool to the beach is breathtaking. We did venture to Puerta adventuras for scuba and fishing and a day trip to Tulum. All in all, it was an absolutely wonderful place to rest, relax, connect with the family, and renew. Highly recommended and can't wait to return.

Our family enjoyed our week in Casa Yardena. We could not have been happier and your house made it possible. It is a dream house, with very tasteful and high quality furnished. Views from the terrace are spectacular, wildlife is amazing! The location directly in the middle of the bay just can't be beat. We hope to have a chance to come back again it is so relaxing and there are so many things to do in the area.

We recently stayed at both Casa yardena and the owners other property Hacie da caracol. There was a large group of 37 between the 2 houses for a wedding. We had an amazing time. Both villas are stunning and the staff is just as amazing. They did everything to make our stay so special. We had our wedding at casa Yardena and the staff catered our wedding meal! It was everything we wanted and more! The owner is very prompt and professional at answering any questions we had. I can't say in words enough positive things about this place!
"Great vacation and wonderful stay at Casa Yardena"

On behalf of all three families, thank you so much for a wonderful stay in Mexico last week. We loved the house and appreciated all of the help the staff provided us. Chef avelino and his assistant Manual kept us well fed and they were a pleasure to interact with. The rest of the staff did a fantastic job and we could not be more thankful.

We had the time of our lives in the Riviera Maya. This was one of the nicest houses we have seen in the area. Always clean and comfortable beds. The area is very quiet. We were really happy to just sit by the beach, enjoy the fresh drinks Chef use to bring us and just make the best out of our vacation. Plenty of room for all of us and great services received.

I have been planing this trip for a year now. This was my husband's 65th birthday and I wanted to make it a special one. We were 14 adults, 5 children and 3 babies. It was just great being all together. The Chef helped us plan the special event with a four course meal, mariachi band, and a really special delicious cake.
It was the first time we visit Soliman Bay, we had stayed in the past in Cancun Hotel. Soliman Bay is really not comparable. It is really beautiful and the fish in the ocean are very colorful.
I would recommend renting a villa for any large family. Hotels are just not the same..
This vacation will always remain memorable and we want to thank the staff, villa owners and manager for helping us out :)

We are safely back in atlanta; however our daydreams are of snorkeling in Soliman Bay, a family lunch at Casa Yardena, and a Negra Modela! Our family had a wonderful vacation during our stay at Casa Yardena and appreciate everything you, Anna, and the staff did to make our stay so special. This was our 6th trip and we have watched our four grandsons grow from 2, 3,4, & 5 year olds playing on the beach into 8,9, 10, & 11 year olds who are graceful swimmers and snorkelers!
The improvements you have made to the property are very nice and we particularly enjoyed the new built-in cushioned areas. We have always thought Casa Yardena to be a beautiful home and each year we have looked forward to being there. It was also nice to have the groceries stocked when we arrived. Thank you for suggesting this.

We were 12 friends, 3 couples, and wanted to rent a villa on the beach that was in Riviera Maya. We had airport transfers waiting for us at our arrival. Brought us straight to the house that already had the fridge filled with groceries that we had organized before.
We spent a week on the beach, just relaxing and enjoying the sun. It is really fun to have someone cook for you all the meals just the way you want them.
The house is really beautiful, all of the rooms are the same quality. The staff is great, location is perfect. We arrived early to the house and they let us enjoy the pool and had snacks ready for us!

our week at the villa Yardena was nothing short of amazing. Gaby was great, victor a big help. "El Gato" little white cat was welcome and not a pest and our favorite was Manuel who was not only a huge help on anything from carrying groceries to putting away our toys at the end of the day because he knew that toys need to be taken care of and properly placed. he was a new friend to our 9 year old son and I welcomed Manuel into my family and told him he was welcome with me any time I was on the beach.
You are very lucky as we were to have antonio. He was without a doubt the single biggest impact on our time. He took the time through experience to learn what we liked, spent additional time with me and spoke enough English that the kids and grand parents all got a chance to know him and enjoy his cooking. He is fantastic.
Our thanks to Carmen as well for pleasantly making sure all was safe and well during the night hours. At one point a ping pong paddle fell off the table at 3:00 in the morning and woke me and as I pulled the curtains to see why he was there with a flash light checking things out.
You have a first class place, great staff, and a great business. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for what is probably the biggest, best and last event I will share with my parents who will not live long enough to do th is again.
I'll be in touch. Thanks again to all who made this happen. It was a dream come true over 2000 miles away from home.

We have stayed in Casa Yardena three times. The house is amazing and seems to get better each time. The upkeep is spotless and the enhancements are great. We are a large party of 18 and the updated/new casitas make a big difference. They are very nice and in keeping with the rest of the house. I cannot stress enough how clean and well kept the house is. The house keeping team and the gardener work to keep the place looking good.
The main house is large and functional. The 4 casitas are in the tropical, walled, garden. Very safe and secure, but not attached to the house – about 30-50 feet away. Again, the house, like all houses there, is walled on three sides. They take privacy and security seriously.
The beach is very nice – raked daily. There is a bit of seaweed right at the water’s edge but once beyond that the snorkeling is nice and safe. We have seen rays, small barracuda, flounder and other sea life. Kayaking and beach walking are daily events too.
The pool is clean and well kept and the entire outdoor area is functional and relaxing.
One of the best parts of the house is the chef. They are very good, speak enough English to get by and do a lot of hard work. We request guacamole and margaritas on the roof top every day for the adults and it’s always ready. In the ten days there this year, no one from out group ever had to wash a dish or cook. It could not be better and they cook lots of good local dishes if you ask them to. Oh, the shopping is done for you as well.
This year we took USA Transfer (loved them) from the airport to the house and it was a huge upgrade from renting two vans. We then rented a car in Puerto Adventura just to have for a few days (Avis at the Dream’s hotel – kind of a bust.) Try Hertz in Akumal.
The overall location is great if you want to be far from the crowds. We left the house 3-4 times in total to scuba dive, fish or shop.
