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.)
