“Paradise!”
Reviewed 10 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The house itself is AMAZING! The pictures definitely don't do it justice at all. Everything is very well kept and we felt right at home. We had 15 people in our group, no kids. We had my wedding here at the house and it was amazing... I can't wait to see the pictures!
Rolando & Jorge-- the Chefs were amazing. Very flexible on the dietary restrictions that we had in the group. (You must try their Cheese Pie!) Alejandra & Miguel-- the caretakers were always ready to help and kept everything looking clean. Laura-- the concierge was great with communication before and during the trip. She was very helpful getting our group coordinated and with tips for the area.
I would recommend renting a vehicle, it was easy for us to go to town for shopping and for any last minute items-- beware the road is bumpy.
The only thing that we would change would be the dog on the premises. We aren't dog people, but he pretty much stayed away.
Hopefully we can return soon... it was very sad to leave such a beautiful place! TIP: Do some star watching-- we saw a ton of shooting stars!

Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Sombras del Viento is an excellent place to stay in, very spacious house, beautiful pool, excellent service of the chefs Rolando and Jorge, and Laura, the concierge.
It is set in a tranquil closed gate community, in a beautiful bay where you can do snorkeling if you use the kayacs available at the house.
The house is very well equipped, with a nice mexican decor.
The only bad point would be the seaweed, which was a lot and made the water not pristine near the beach.

“What a wonderful vacation destination!”
Reviewed 17 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

From booking to saying goodbye, the entire experience was nothing short of amazing. We were a larger group of 9 adults and 6 children and still had plenty of space and extra bedrooms.

Booking was easy as Loic is quick to communicate and extremely accommodating. Concierge Laura couldn't have been friendlier and helpful. She made sure we had transport to and from the airport and any quickly responded anytime we needed anything. From excursions to scheduling a doctor's visit, she made us her #1 priority.

The staff are incredible. Jorge and Rolando, the chefs, cook 3 meals per day (except Sunday's) and they're all amazing. If you go, request shrimp tacos and have them make their cold shrimp salad. Wow. Fresh fish veracruz, Mole, Quevos Rancheros....everything is awesome. They always prepare kid friendly dishes too for the young ones. They'll go shopping for you daily so you never run out of cold beer or tequila!

Alajandra and Miguel take care of the place and live on site in a separate house on the property. They make sure the rooms are cleaned up and the beach is cleaned everyday. They're wonderful people and so nice. They have two dogs, Chili and Blackie - which my kids thought were the coolest little perros!

The house is the real star however. Its perfect. 3 separate houses combined to make one giant house. 2 pools - with 1 of them being more in the shade while the other gets full sun. Plenty of snorkel equipment is available to hit the reef up. the bay itself is about waste deep water out to 200 feet...then it gradually gets deeper out to the reef. Note, this year had a lot of seaweed bloom - but that's everywhere up and down the coast. Its worse then previous years - but we were there for 11 days and it cleared up for about 4 days in the middle of the stay which lead to beautiful blue waters.

Every room has AC, which is a must as it gets fairly hot. Make sure to bring bug spray as the mosquitos are fairly heavy between 7p and 9p.

I can't recommend this place more and I have no doubt we'll be staying there again at some point.

Thank you!

Liked best: the pools, beach and main deck and the chefs.
Liked least: My only criticism would be weak wi-fi and mother nature bringing in all that seaweed.

This place has it all. Two luxorious pools, lots of places to relax, wonderful snorkling with turtles and friendly staff. We are particulary pleased with the chefs that were really flexible and professional in satisfying all our needs.

We stayed here for a total of three weeks. One of the weeks we were 24 people (11 children and 13 adults) staying at the villa. This was maybe a few too many, but the staff was really helpful in finding ways to find a bed for all of us. The chefs could handle all meals for us with ease and we all dined at the same table!

The beach is really nice, but quite stony and there are some sea weed in the shore that you will need to pass to get to the water that you can swim in. For a real carribean beach experience, Tulum is just a 15 minutes drive away.

“Spectacular!”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A great and wonderful site! A great place for a family reunion or for a group of friends.
Although we never met the owners, we communicated quite often and established a trustworthy relationship. Loic, was extremely flexible, Laura (the concierge) made sure we had everything we needed. A real facilitator, she went out of her way to arrange for a baby car seat at the last moment. We advise to use her services, particularly to be picked up at the airport on your arrival - George and Rafael...great chefs! Always smiling and quite flexible as well with meal time. We stayed nine days, and wished we had booked for two weeks. Beautiful villa and beautiful people.
