This past school year was my last as a special education teacher, I'm now retired. All year I had a palm tree pendant as a talisman of my trip to Mexico at the end of the year. I somehow found Xcalak as the destination, and the Sin Duda as my choice for accommodations. Xcalak, is relatively remote: you have to... More

It's been several months since my husband and I had our first stay at Sin Duda Villas. And just like the Windsong commercial, it stays on our minds! I agree with all the 5 star reviews, and we are looking forward to our next visit, as Sin Duda is the perfect destination for us. A few years ago, we discovered... More

We spent 7 beautiful nights at Sin Duda Villas in early May. Love the place, everything about it. Lesley and David are a joy and absolutely lovely and accomodating. The water and particularly the snorkeling are phenomenal. We scoped the "competition" as we were there and were very happy to see that we chose the best of xcalak. We fully... More

As suspected 3 night stay wasn't long enough. A fantastic stay with Dave & Lesley in a relatively remote part of Mexico. Great hospitality but not intrusive so you can really chill out. Beach and snorkeling good although windy weather and sea grass against us a bit. Make sure you stock up on food especially protein as not much available... More

It's been a week since we've returned to Toronto from our ten day stay at Sin Duda, and it is all we are still thinking about! Our time there has given us a newfound respect for the ocean and the coral reef, and we couldn't have asked for a better guide than Lesley herself. We accompanied her on her daily... More

Thanks so much to Leslie and Dave for making our stay so perfectly relaxing and soul-rejuvenating. We stayed with our 6 and 10 year olds here and we all quickly fell in love with the place and the wonderful nature that is everywhere. The kids loved the little things like the "pet" iguanas and the kiddie cocktails that Leslie and... More

We live in Quintana Roo and wanted our family to experience the "off the beaten path non touristy" side of Mexico vacationing, so a friend recommended this beautiful place and we were swept away in love! The set up was perfect for my family. My parents had their own room and my sister and her husband split one of the... More

I used to live in Playa del Carmen (4 hours north of Xcalak) but it has become increadably built up and busy. So, I was looking for something quieter and ideally with accommodation on the beach. Sin Duda Villas offered me the perfect solution. I stayed in Bailando, a fully equiped appartment on the ground floor with direct access to... More

We took our 7th trip to Sin Duda Villas in April 2015. Sin Duda and Xcalak have everything we're looking for... quiet, relaxation, beautiful beach, beautiful Caribbean, wonderful snorkeling and diving, birding, and great fishing. Sin Duda itself is located in a perfect location, about 8 km from the town of Xcalak, so the peace and quiet are beyond compare.... More

If you love the Mexican Caribbean but are done with Tulum, look no further. And if you love a beach B&B experience that takes ‘inviting’ and ‘relaxing’ to the next level, you’ve come the right place. Dave & Lesley are ideal hosts, living their beach dream while making guests from around the world feel more like instant friends. Each room/villa... More
