“Definiton of "Paridise"= Gauguin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

I couldn't of asked for a more perfect FATHER'S DAY with my family than this placed offered. The views were breath taking, the staff and service was amazing, and the house was in luxurious condition.

Every morning the dishes were done, sheets were fresh, and the house was clean. Best part about it was, the staff stay out of your way and you never even know they are cleaning. We did have a problem with one air conditioner not working, we had an new one installed later that day. They offer a menu and will cook Breakfast/Dinner for you. You provide the ingredients and for a small fee ($35us for a family of 6) they will prepare, cook, and clean up. It was amazing. It was like having a restuarant in your house. Gladys and Fransico are the reason this house is so amazing.

You cannot put into words what the views are like. Every room but two wakes up to the most beuatiful and breathtaking sunrise in the world. Not only are the views wonderful, but they face the Yal-ku lagoon. With a 30 second walk over the rocks you are entered into the best snorkling in Akumal. We saw Rays, Turtles, Barracuda, Conch, Tarpon and a wide variety of all other reef fish. My 11 year old grandson learned how to snorkle on this trip and now is addicted. The lagoon is sheltered and stays calm. Really good for the beginner.

Paridise: place or state of perfect happiness. If this is what you are looking for, look no further, because you have found it.

“BEST ACCOMODATIONS AND STAFF EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2011 for a stay in March 2011

I've vacationed in Mexico about a dozen times and have stayed at some very exclusive resorts and properties. Villa Gauguin surpassed all of them in terms of cleanliness, safety, customer service, location and scenic beauty.

The staff is wonderful. From the moment we drove up to the home, we were greeted with a friendly and helpful smile. The kitchen was cleaned every day. Climbing into a freshly-washed set of sheets each evening was a luxury our entire group enjoyed. Having an endless supply of filtered water in the kitchen was a welcome bonus that shows how much the staff and owners care about their customers. The pool and grounds around the building were immaculate. The location is great - several snorkeling spots are accessible by walking a few yards along the rocks behind the property.

I couldn't recommend Villa Gauguin or its wonderful staff highly enough. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

“Perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2011 for a stay in March 2011

Let's start off by saying that Francisco and Gladys were some of the most helpful and lovely people people we met on this trip. The home was in beautiful condition in terms of cleanliness and up keep. Every morning the dishes were done, sheets changed and the entire house was cleaned. They were also very helpful with suggestions and directions.
The location of the villa is perfect, it was off the main road and was extremely quiet. Waking up to the sunrise over the lagoon is a view that is tough to beat. Wearing water shoes, the walk to the lagoon is easy and entertaining while watching the iguanas on the rocks. In the lagoon we saw turtles, rays and numerous fish.
The home was stocked with purified water, an immense welcome fruit basket with numerous other goodies. The pool was in great shape and the grounds were perfectly manicured.
The villa was well worth the price for the value received!!! The Caretaker and Maid, better known as Francisco and Gladys, were always hard working, quiet while working in the morning, and adorned with a smile and a Buenos Dias. They are far from lazy with all the work they do! Francisco and Gladys made for a perfect week in a perfect villa. The villa and the people are the reason vacations in Mexico are perfect!
