This is an absolutely beautiful spot in Mexico, well worth the journey, you really get off the beaten track here! The owners Lesley and Dave couldn't have been more welcoming, Lesley's margarita's are delicious! The snorkelling straight off the beach is wonderful and Lesley took us on a tour we saw beautiful, fish, coral, squid, eels and an eagle ray.... More

I'm into remote areas with opportunities for self-directed activities. My hope in going to Sin Duda was that I'd be able to snorkel as much as I wanted, whenever I wanted. In this I was more than satisfied. Not only was I able to dawn my mask and flippers and wade in without fuss, but I had the added advantage... More

What a hidden gem. Our friend who is from Tulum told us if we wanted to get away from the crowds and experience what Tulum was 20 years ago head to Xcalak. We are so glad we did. Sin Duda was amazing- we had the honeymoon suite and had the perfect trip. They were there if we needed them but... More

After a lapse of fourteen years we finally managed to make it back to Sin Duda. After having had such an amazing time there in July 2002 with our twelve-year-old son, we had been dreaming of returning. Knowing that the place had changed hands from the wonderful original owners and that memories can tend to idealize past experiences, we were... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sin Duda. Bailando apartment: even more beautiful in reality than on website...original art, interesting architectural details! Comfortable bed, bedroom separate from spacious living/dining/kitchen, many books, beautiful view of beach(only steps away) through patio doors, quiet. We enjoyed snorkelling right off the beach, reading under the palapas or on our covered patio, walking along the... More

We travelled 24 hours from San Cristobal to get to Sin Duda, and after being there for an hour it already felt worth it! All the glowing reviews are spot on. Thanks Lesley and Dave for a wonderful stay. Fabia and Charlie :)

We returned to Sin Duda in November for a few nights and had another wonderful time, in spite of the terrible weather! It seemed to rain more or less non stop but Dave and Lesley looked after us so well that we hardly noticed! For example, I was carrying a cardboard box from the car up the stairs just after... More

My wife and I and another couple spend four wonderful days/nights (December 14-18, 2015) in Xcalak at Sin Duda Villas. This place was recommended to us by friends who stayed there last year and we are indebted to them for the recommendation. How to describe the area and the lodging? I would say it is for folks, like ourselves, who... More

We had a great time here! Lesley and Dave are they best, they really looked after us and we enjoyed socialising with the guests during happy hours. Be warned though, Lesley makes a mean margarita! If you want to get away from it all this is the place. Also the snorkelling is top notch - we even saw an eagle... More
