Wonderful relaxed and friendly reception. Blissful location. White sands, crystal clear sea. We arrived on spec and waited for the most Devine Ceviche to be made ,While we drank cervezas and margaritas. Had a wonderful drive down the peninsula passing many iguanas and a few pelicans. The American hosts were charming. Would love to stay in one of their tree... More

My sisters' and I stayed at Xamach Dos from April 23 - 26 2014. We loved everything about it. I have read several of the reviews and do agree that it may not be for everyone, but if you want something a little more laid back, perhaps like visiting a friends cottage, than this is the place for you. We... More

We have been here for 5 nights (1 in casa secreta and 4 in the treetop house) and we did not want to leave. This place is the perfect getaway. We experienced a great and very flexible service, Michelle and Tim were amazing hosts and the fantastic chef was always open to any of our wishes. The five cabanas are... More

We stayed at Xamach Dos and were absolutely enchanted. Everything about the experience was perfect especially the rustic tree house (60 or so meters from the ocean) and the food. They went out of their way to proactively ask if we had any special dietary needs (we did; vegetarian) and then they adapted their authentic Mayan/Mexican cuisine to them for... More

This place is a magical secret tucked deep into the natural reserve of Sian Ka'an, all the way toward the end of a dirt road, one hour+ South of Tulum. First of all, I must warn everyone (even couples): You will fall in love with Michelle :) (Dan's, the owner, daughter) She is one of the sweetest most grounded people... More

All is not as it appears on the website and brochure. As the date of our reservation approached, we became increasingly concerned about the drive in to Xamach Dos in our tiny rental car. We decided not to go and requested a refund for only the second day of our two night reservation. Our refund request was denied. We were... More

THE ROAD..you have to understand that sometimes the road is good, and sometimes it is not. It is a park road and I cannot always guarantee that it will be smooth, I have no control over that. I take every review personally, I built the place, put 10 years of my life into it, how can it not be personal.... More

We would recommend due caution when dealing with arrangements for Xamach Dos. We had arranged for a family reunion vacation with 17 people for the week before Thanksgiving, 2013. We have vacationed in the Tulum area over many years and know the Boca Paila road. We based our decision to stay at Xamach Dos by their website, never having visited... More

There are legitimate points here...last September , October, November it rained pretty much every day, the lagoon flooded the road, making it difficult but not impossible to get down to Xamach. It made it very hard for us also...our supplies come from Tulum, by the same road, it was just a difficult time for everybody. I knew these people would... More

Typically I don't go to Mexico except May thru August. However I was at XD in Dec 2013 and cut my trip short. I came back with my wife and a good friend and stayed from March 5th till the 14th. I've written a number of reviews so excuse me for repeating myself. The owners and staff are like family... More

We found Xamach Dos a great place for relaxation, great dining and good times. Being one who works in rural British Columbia the road was indeed poor (but mostly due to poor to non-existent maintenance), however, the road is merely uncomfortable and is best driven with a higher clearance vehicle with larger rubber. Hugo the chef and his supporting team... More
