Located in the gated community of Puerto Aventuras, this lovely and well-managed B&B is perfectly located to explore what the Riviera Maya has to offer: only a five minute drive from beautiful cenotes, half hour away from amazing beaches (Akumal), an hour away (or less) from Tulum, and an hour and a half from Cobà. Owners are very friendly and... More

First I'll list the positives: inexpensive, good location for trips along the coast, quiet, friendly. The downsides: our first floor room was moldy (not just the usual mustiness common to tropical places), to the point where I needed the window and door open as much as possible just to breathe easy. The cenote in the back yard was an algae'd... More

Good morning Mrs "Bluegreen", thanks for your review. I'd like to underline some details even it was easier to check with us : -our cenote is a natural cenote with mangrooves and it's protected by the mexican's laws so we can't put chemicals or clean like a "commercial" one and concerning the dead fish (are u serious???) probably you should...

Spent 2 nights at this lovely B&B managed by Alberto & Sonia. Location is fantastic. Owners very friendly and careful to details. Puerto Aventuras is a great spot for visiting the surroundings (Tulum, Coba', Riviera Maya, Cenotes ect..). I definitely reccomend it!

Villas Picalu was an amazing find. It's in a gated community and easy to get to other places from here. Since it's a large community, you have everything near by, convenience stores, delicious restaurants and even hotels that offer lots of services. The owners are incredibly nice and very helpful with anything you ask. We felt welcome and comfortable here.... More

My first Cancun vacation and opted to DIY B&B lodging, sight-seeing and rent-a-car. Villas Picalu is situated in a gated community of western expats and retirees. The marina is literally a stone throw away, quite convenient for charter fishing and scuba diving. I enjoyed daily walks around the marina "trails" to check out the dolphins, sea lions and manatees at... More

My fiance and I stayed at Picalu during a trip in January and what a treat! We loved the town of Aventuras, and Alberto & Sonia are simply the best, most helpful and welcoming hosts you could ever ask for. The accommodations are simple but very relaxing - just what we needed. We already can't wait to go back except... More

We stayed two nights at Villas Picalu. The room was very spacious and clean. Lots of water pressure, but not much in the way of hot water. Great location, just steps from all the restaurants and shops. We would definitely consider staying there again.

This was my first time staying at a B&B. All I can say is that I could not have picked a better place. I will most definitely stay again on my next trip. The house is centrally located to all the shops and restaurants in the village. It is an easy stroll to dinner!
