I really want to give this place a bad review, because I want to hoard it all for myself. But that would be wrong. This place is excellent. We've stayed there two years in a row, and I consider this my home in Tulum. The owners and staff are exceptional people. The location is great because you have access to all the affordable restaurants in the Pueblo, in addition to being a couple miles from the beach (very accessible by bike on the bike path, or by an inexpensive cab ride). This place is not 4 stars by any means, but then again if you stay here you're not looking for 4 star accommodations. If you want that, stay on the beach, and pay 3-4 times as much for less than what you would get at Villas Geminis. Plus most of the places down on the beach don't have conventional electricity, meaning you are subject to solar and wind for your power. Each room has a kitchenette and refrigerator so you can cook at the condo. All the rooms have AC. The pool is small, but very clean and well maintained. The area the hotel is located is very safe, but depending on the time of year, can be a little noisy at times (nothing the AC won't drown out while you are sleeping at night). We will stay here every time we travel to Tulum. Thanks Villas Geminis for always making our stay in Tulum memorable.
