“Awesome! Such lovely people!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here in Tulum for two nights and I must say the staff here really make this place so welcoming. Our villa was beautifully clean and decorated, I really could not fault it. Also on the day we were due to check out, not only did they allow us store our bags for the day so we could go to the beach but I was feeling unwell and they allowed me to stay in the villa and rest while my friends went on a tour. Great place!!

the condo hotel, is exactly what i have expected. The unit we had has loby and bathroom downstairs, and 2bedrooms and bathroom upstairs.. The smaller but nice pool was just infront our doors. The center from this hotel is close as well as all the beaches and other atractions.. I think your own or rented car is a must here, and you can really easy park it next to villas.. Good call this hotel...

Villas geminis is perfect for a laid back holiday:) a 20 minute cycle (see cesar the live-in maintenance manager for free cycle hire) or $70peso (£3) taxi ride from the beach, it is located in the amazing tulum pueblo. Just far enough away from the lagoon and jungle that you don't get bitten to death! And right on the doorstep are real Mexican cafes, bars and restaurants. The villas were busy, but we rarely saw the other guests and felt like we were on our own, enjoying a refreshing swim in the pool every morning. The apartment is huge and so well equipped! The owners Catherine and Hernan are so friendly and organised a taxi for us to attractions at a very competitive rate, they can also organise massage therapy or personal yoga lessons! and whatever you need cesar is always there-brush up on your Spanish though as he has no English! Also the a/c is free and really cold!! :) we love villas geminis!!! :))))

Visited the Villas Gemini in February 2013 and was so pleasantly surprised by the very chic accommodations. The setting is intimate and you can seek privacy or get to know your fellow Geminis easily. The room itself is really an apartment that is fully furnished with excellent pieces, comfy bed, full kitchen and wonderful design elements.
The property sits a bit of a distance from the beach but is really a very easy and cheap taxi ride to ocean front, which is absolutely stunning! There are many ocean front restaurants and bars but are very overpriced. The Villas are more centrally located in the "working" area of Tulum that is chock full of shops, restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores and all walk-able from the Villas. You will be very pleased with this property... and the hosts are just wonderful. Very helpful and gracious. The major attractions are all easily accessible by taxi or local bus.Can't wait to get back to Tulum...

Villas Geminis is a great location! Its a very modern, nicely decorated, comfortable and quiet condo right in the centre of Tulum a few minutes from the main shopping/restaurant road. Cesar was there to welcome us and responded promptly to our requests (coffe maker, salt..) Catherine and Herman are great hosts and you can see attention to detail they proudly dedicate to the property. The distance with the playa is irrelevant. You can get a taxi from outside the condo very easily at any time and it costs about 40 pesos (not even 4 USD) to go to the beach , it's a five minute drive. They also supplied us with 10% discount vouchers to be used in the stunning "la vita e' bella" beach. You wouldn't have to pay to use the sun-beds and parasols there anyway, but the discount comes in handy when you start making the most of their tasty gourmet food and cocktail menu served by very professional friendly staff right on the beach!! Overall very pleased with this booking and I can't wait to go back!

Villas Geminis was beautiful and perfectly appointed in every way. The people who work there are so accommodating and lovely. The condo was spotless clean and so perfectly comfortable. The complex is excellently located -- a short walk to the village 'center' and an equally short drive to the beach. Not only do my teenage son and I wish to return soon but we wish to live there as well. It really is nothing short of perfection. Rosina

Room Tip: There was no 'fitness center' or 'room service' but I provided an 'excellent'...

My husband and I stayed in the one bedroom condo for five nights in the beginning of our trip and one more night at the end. The condo was beautiful, well decorated, clean and comfortable. Our bed was very comfortable, and the condo was nice and quiet. Condo was well equipped with a kitchen, a nice large shower and drinking water. The condos surround a beautiful little garden and pool available for the guests. The staff was friendly, helpful and courteous. The owner Hernan greeted us kindly when we arrived and his wife Catherine was very accommodating over the phone and email when we had a change of plans and had to arrive for the 2nd half of our stay a day later. The condo is walking distance from many restaurants and the main drag of the town as well a convenience store and a large grocery store. It is located a very short drive from the beach road. Villas Geminis was the perfect home away from home, very comfortable and welcoming and I would certainly recommend it!
