For the traveller that wishes to get away from the large beach resorts and experience a smaller, friendly. local place, with a dive shop, go no further than Villas H2O. The owners Min and Marco gave excellent service from the moment we arrived. Min was always ready to recommend good local places to eat, either in town or on the beach. Little touches like advice on bus service to Tulum, the 6-pak of beer after our arrival, or cooking extra food for breakfast (as I was on a restrictive diet) were above and beyond the call of duty! We loved that this small hotel was only a 10 minute walk from town and so close to many wonderful cenotes. Villas has a lovely courtyard, garden and eating area by the outdoor pool. Our room was clean, simple and uncluttered and very chic. The breakfasts consisted of fresh fruit, fresh squeezed orange juice, coffee/tea, freshly baked pastries from the town bakery, a variety of cereals, toast and yogurt.....all delicious. Eggs, bacon and sausage can also be had if Drew (the chef) is working. Marco's dive shop had excellent rental gear, fabulous Dive Masters (Daniel and Daniella) and much expertise in the area of cenote/cavern and cave diving and we would highly recommend him if you have never tried cenote diving before. We thought - sure we will do one or two dives - and ended up doing six! The experience is otherworldly, spectacular and not to be missed if you have good bouyancy skills. If you are a diver, do not waste time on the touristy places (like Rio Secreto & XCaret, etc.), but seek out the real cenotes with Marco and his excellent Dive Masters and you will not be disappointed. We would love to return to Villas H2O and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone.
