My wife and I just completed our third visit to Lesley and David's paradise spot outside of Xcalak, Mexico. If you are looking for a quiet place with a perfect beach and great snorkeling just a hundred yards from that beach, this is the place to spend some time. Xcalak is a small Mayan settlement with several excellent local restaurants...

Sin Duda Villas is one of my favorite places on the planet. It's home + tropical paradise + relaxation + adventure. My favorite things include: the hosts (so friendly and welcoming), the beach (so pretty and tranquil), the wind in the palm trees (so soothing), the viewing the stars from the rooftop decks, and evening drinks on the beach with...

My wife and I have had a great many travel adventures and experiences, so we know what we are looking for in a vacation to please us. Sin Duda in Xcalak is certainly one of our best times yet. Our month here was over too quickly. We have already booked a month for next year and we have never returned...

My husband and I stayed here 5 nights in February and LOVED it. You must understand that this is a very remote area with little or no "services" (i.e. shopping, cultural events, etc). However, if you are looking for a quiet getaway with snorkeling, kayaking, birdwatching ( while taking my first shower, I looked out the open window to see...

This past holiday season my husband and I were lucky enough to make a return trip to Xcalak and visit our wonderful friends, Lesley and Dave, at Sin Duda. We have traveled extensively in coastal Mexico and love this place for its serenity and natural environment. We choose to stay in the trees in the Studio Selva, in which we...

Enjoyed a wonderful week at Sin Duda Villas in remote and beautiful Xcalak Mexico. Great place for relaxing, fly fishing, and snorkeling. Owners are great hosts. Property is in excellent condition. Do not go to Xcalak if you want crowds, nightlife, and rows of restaurants. Do go to Xcalak if you want serenity.

This place isn't for everybody but it sure was the right place for us. Do you like all-inclusive? Umbrella drinks? Tour guides? Piped in music ? Satellite TV? THEN DON"T COME HERE- you'll spoil the vibe. It's not for you. Do you like a little adventure in your travel ? A remote location off the beaten path ? Far away...

We are frequent guests of Sin Duda Villas.....so, it requires some effort for me to NOT to sound like some kind of advertisement! We’ve vacationed at SDV four times (2008, 2010, 2012, 2013) when it was run by Margo & Robert, and now twice (2016 & 2017) with Dave and Lesley....... and clearly love it - - - - That...

We spent 16 days at Sin Duda which was woefully short. A beautiful place with some wonderful hosts. It was our second time to stay there and it will not be the last. It cannot get much better than donning gear under a palapa and snorkeling steps away. Watching the sunrise from the same palapas and the sunset from the...

Hubby and I spent a week here in early December and had a great vacation! We chose Sin Duda / Xcalak because we wanted to try the DIY fly fishing and also get out of comfort zone a bit by traveling somewhere remote. We were rewarded! Lesley provided us pages and pages of information about where to stay along the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come stay with us at the end of the road on our secluded beach - a respite from the noise and bright lights. Using ecologically responsible technologies and a cheerful perspective to conserve our unique environment, we live through seasons leaving only footprints in the white Caribbean sand. Presenting 8 remarkable spaces designed by the past architect-owner. Sin Duda Villas reflects an appreciation of Mayan simplicity, form and tropical colors. With a bit of whimsy tossed here and there. Peaceful, unique and decidedly rewarding. ... more   less
