“Central, comfortable, enjoyed both beach and town”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Our family of four (two adults and two 20ish boys) loved our stay at Villas Geminis. The condos are clean, comfortable, and central to the city of Tulum, but were also very quiet. We were able to ride the condo's single-speed bicycles down the bike path to the public beaches (about 15 minutes away by bike on a very gentle ride and at very lazy vacation-mode speed), while at the same time enjoying the variety of restaurants in the city of Tulum, which are far more affordable than the restaurants by the beach. (You can find very good "homemade" Yucatan food for about $5 USD in town, whereas it's about $15 USD or more at the beach. Also, there are several organizations in town that can arrange tours for you to the various ruins, dive locations (and certification), and the Sian Ka'an biosphere. Cesar, the caretaker who tends to the condos throughout the day is amazingly kind and helpful. The condos are also located just about 10 minutes lazy cycling time from the ruins of Tulum. Overall, we found these condos to be very well priced, comfortable, convenient, and a great blend of being close to the bike path to the beach as well as close to the restaurants and shopping in town. They are just a five minute bike ride to two large supermarkets, so you can stock up on food to prepare in the condo kitchen. The AC in the bedrooms worked great, and the wi-fi worked well too. Highly recommended. (By the way, the street food vendors a few blocks from the condos are great. Our sons became nearly addicted to the spicy pork sandwiches and the soft tacos.)

We opted for Villa Geminis because we were traveling with friends and a baby. We wanted a nice and cozy place where we could feel at home in Tulum. We were a little bit disappointed by the place: the pool was not clean upon arrival, the baby chair and bed we received were not in their best conditions either, the quality of the shower/toilet installations was not the best and when we asked for help, the help did not come immediately...We think the place could do well if it received a little more love and care from the owner. Also: a very unpleasant experience was the fact that our bags got stolen by only leaving them at the street entrance for a few seconds, until we opened the door of the apartment.

villasgemis, Owner at Villas Geminis Boutique Condo Hotel, responded to this review, August 27, 2013
We feel that the comments in this review that are not acurate.

The swiming pool is immaculate and is cleaned thoroughly on a daily basis.
Cesar was in the process of cleaning it upon the guests arrival.

The pack and play crib is in good condition, and the highchair is a typical handmade wooden chair, its not a modern plastic one.

They claim that Cesar took a long time to come check the toilet, it's impossible he is always on any problem immediately. Please see all other reviews mentioning Cesar.

The guests never mentioned that their bags were stolen by leaving them on the street...

We are especially shocked to read that the place lacks love and care from the owner!
WE PUT AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF LOVE AND CARE IN OUR PLACE, which is evident in our reviews.

I'd always been curious about Tulum and finally decided to check it out. After briefly looking around for price and location I decided on Villas Geminis without much research. My experience was fantastic. I felt like I was being lent a beautiful apartment by a friend. For those who have never been in Tulum, the interesting thing about this place is that the beach and the town are separated by a mile and a half of jungle so that you're either on the beach, or in the town. There's no in-between. But once I got a feel for the beach and what the layout is like, I was really glad that I had booked here. Once I had enough of the sun and the water, it was nice to be able to get away from it and besides the town is where most of the activity happens. Being able to walk out of your condo and have bars, restaurants, shops and stores to buy food and fill your refrigerator is priceless. Villa Geminis is on a quiet street one block away from the action. To get to the beach, there's only one road with a parallel bike path to its side. Villa Geminis is situated two short blocks from this road and they provide you the bikes. The condos are very spacious and well decorated and all overlook a lush, tropical courtyard with a pool. The owners are very cool and run the place in a very casual and friendly way. I highly recommend this place as a great home base for exploring Tulum and for a restful and comfortable vacation.

Room Tip: I don't think they have a bad room here but I particularly enjoyed being in the back of the buil...

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 Condo Hotel is a little gem located in the heart of town in Tulum, Mexico.

We are a 5 minute drive to the
 beach, the Mayan ruins 
and cenotes. It is so centrally located, that you can walk everywhere to the supermarkets, fresh produce & fish market, restaurants, shops, bank, internet, car rental, etc.... (There is no need for a rental car, taxis are everywhere & inexpensive). There are four 2 bedroom accommodations, (4 - 6 people) which are comprised of 2 levels: the downstairs with a complete kitchen, bar, dining room, living room with a futon (for additional guests) and a complete bathroom. The upstairs has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, both w/air conditioning, and balcony overlooking the swimming pool and tropical garden. There is a luminous bathroom with a rainhead shower and double sinks. There is a 1 bedroom accommodation, ( 2 - 4 people) which is comprised of one level, with a king bed, A/C, a complete bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, dining area, and living room with a double sofa bed for additional guests. We have 2 one bedroom suits, and 3 brand new Penthouse Studios that have private terraces and outdoor soaking tubs. The 10 units can be rented individually or as a group, making Villas Geminis the best vacation rental for a wedding, family reunion or for friends and families traveling together.
