“Lovely Stay at Villa Palmilla!”
Reviewed 15 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The bedrooms/bathrooms were spacious and so comfortable, air conditioning worked great, a stunning view from everywhere, and the pool was perfect! It was very quiet although there is a bit of construction going on across the street and next door and at times we could hear the noise. The nearby town of Akumal was a 20 min walk on the beach. The beach IS rocky but with water shoes it's a non-issue. Great snorkeling! The villa was kept spotless by Margarita and the house had everything you could need, from snorkel equipment/life jackets/kayaks and water shoes to band aids. Pedro made delicious meals for us to dine al fresco (order the Ceviche and the Mexican shrimp!). The freezer didn't work properly.

“Fabulous!!”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Let me get the one thing we didn't love out of the way. The beach in front of the villa is really rocky, and HARD to walk on, although people do it regularly. It was difficult for me to get in the water, but some used the kayaks, and had no trouble. None of us really swam in the water, because the surf is rough and the water choppy.
Other than that, everything else is unbelievably wonderful. The descriptions of the home are 100% accurate. The fit and finish of the villa, are as good as you can get. The home is filled with granite, marble and mahogany. The furniture in the home, and outside are top quality, as are the linens. Our cook and maintenance man, Pedro, prepared excellent chef quality meals, so good that we were not the least bit interested in going off property to dine. Not only was the food delicious, but it also was beautifully presented. Either you can pay for Pedro to go to the store, or you can shop yourself in Tulum or Puerto Aventuras, after talking with him about menus. Look forward to fresh squeezed orange juice every morning. He also kept the pool and grounds immaculate.
Margarita, the housekeeper, is wonderful, and keeps everything perfectly clean. She will also do a load of washing and drying for $5.
It is so delightful to sit on your balcony or on the porch, and hear the surf, with absolutely no responsibilities. Total relaxation. This property is not at all like being at a resort, where there are constant activities. It is made for people who enjoy being surrounded by beauty, and who can entertain themselves with the beauty of nature, swimming in the pool, exploring the area, or just reading, and being with friends and/or family. We hope to be able to return in the spring.
