My husband & I spent 3 nights at Villa Verde. Photos can't capture how beautiful & serene this historic mansion is. It is located only a block or two from the main street making it very pedestrian friendly. The Plaza Grande & the Paseo de Montejo along with all the attractions in between are easily accessible by foot day or night. We had a rental car since we began our holiday in Cancun & were ending it in Tulum. We took a day trip to Celestun to see the flamingos but parked the car the rest of the time. Parking is on a side street; a bit worrisome but we had no issues.
We were greeted by Michael upon arrival. He took us to find a parking spot & gave us a thorough tour of the Villa & our room. He also provided us with city maps outlining all of the main tourist attractions, bank locations, & restaurant recommendations. This was extremely helpful!
Villa Verde has a total of 5 guest rooms. The first 4 are located in the historic building along a beautiful terrace overlooking a small garden & water feature. They offer cathedral ceilings, ornate tile floors, antique windows & doors. We chose the newest room which is an addition to the back of the building. It has a private garden on one side & faces the pool. Although it is spacious, it lacks all of the character that the other rooms have. The bathroom is modern but uninspiring & the furnishings were reminiscent of Ikea. It also had a strong mildew odour. I would recommend one of the terrace rooms instead.
The Villa has a pretty, unheated pool & a few lounge chairs on the patio & a nude sunbathing terrace on the second level. The breakfast area is on a terrace beside the bar overlooking the pool. Breakfast consists of unlimited coffee, fresh O.J., & a creative hot entree. We loved the french toast served with apples cooked in rum; delicious! A complimentary beverage; pop, beer, or wine is served at the bar each evening. Great way to meet the other guests & share stories from the day.
Michael & Robert were gracious hosts; but their poodle Archie stole their thunder! Thanks again for a wonderful stay; highly recommended.
