We stayed here for 3 weeks. Right from ease of booking, arrival and departure, Jill and Martin communicated well, and made us feel welcome. We felt we were part of their family. We stayed in the new one bedroom casita. More than enough room! Poolside! We enjoyed walking around town and discovering some of the many businesses Chelem has to...

Thank you so much for taking the time to share with us your thoughts on your stay here! We appreciate that very much! You really do sum up beautifully all the great things that are happening here, particularly in that we are still basically an authentic small town beach village in Mexico. As you can see there is quite a...

I stayed in the poolside casita for a month, and it was a great experience. Jill and Martin are fantastic, and very attentive. They made sure I had everything I needed, helped me get familiar with the area, and always made sure everything worked and was in order. They live on the property so I never needed to worry about...

Stayed at Rio y Mar in December 2014, super cute casitas opening up to a pool, close to everything in Chelem, no car needed. The family is very accomodating for all their guests, they also live on site. Long term stay would be perfect. Easy to get to Merida, Progreso is a great town of about 50,000 about 4 miles...

I stayed one night On Sun Oct. 19 and it was so great that I did not want to leave. The one of three available apts was clean and very large with a separate living/dining area from the bedroom/bathroom and full kitchen. Linens were nice and the bed was comfortable. Although there was air conditioning, I did not use it...
