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!
