“Perfect vacation rental for family with kids!”
Reviewed January 3, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We just left Mariposa Azul after spending a glorious week there. We have only good things to say about the whole experience. From corresponding with Bill, who was extremely helpful (despite all my emails and questions), to being greeted by Daniella, who was very welcoming. Only one issue came up during our stay and it was addressed quickly and efficiently. The condo is beautiful and very well equipped. The kids loved the pool and we liked that we could sit on the deck overlooking the pool to keep an eye on them. There were several families with children staying in the complex, and we all made some great friends. The proximity of the condo to the beach, the grocery store and to the town was perfect for us. We had a car, so we drove everywhere but it was easy and we tried several of the restaurants Bill recommended. This was the first of three vacation rentals we'll be staying at on this trip, and this one set the bar very high. I'd be very surprised if we come across anything better! Thank you again for everything and we hope to be back soon!

“A beautiful, peaceful getaway just minutes from the beaches and town of Tulum.”

My boyfriend and I made Mariposa Azul our home base as we explored the city and beaches of Tulum, and as we ventured farther inland on day trips to visit Chichen Itza and to swim in some of the many cenotes. We could not have been happier with our choice to stay here. Having the space and amenities available at Mariposa Azul made it the perfect place to regroup between adventures.

The Aldea Zama neighborhood is a very clean and very safe development, located kind of in between the town itself and the little beach clubs/hotels that line the coast. We used the beach cruiser bikes to ride down to the beach almost every day. It’s about a ten-minute ride, and I always enjoyed it.

As many other reviewers have noted, Bill (the owner) and Daniella (the property manager) are both lovely people, and they go out of their way to ensure you have a great stay in Tulum. A special shout-out to El Camello, a local restaurant that Daniella recommended to us, and which I am still dreaming about. It is an unassuming little restaurant that is frequented by many locals, and truly one of the best meals that we had in Mexico—and, man, that is saying something!

We will definitely stay at Mariposa Azul on future trips to Tulum.

“Perfect for a family”
Reviewed September 7, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We loved our week in this apartment. It's clean, modern, well equipped, comfortable and really well situated between Tulum Beach and the town. There's AC everywhere, a flat screen TV(but no satellite), DVD, Playstation, towels, off street parking; we wanted for nothing except perhaps more consistent Wi-Fi. With two spacious double bedrooms (one with an ensuite bathroom) there was plenty of room for a small family.

The apartment sits on the first floor overlooking the fantastic pool area. This will highlight for us, it felt safe enough for us to let our son go on his own as there were always other families around too.

The owner is very helpful and efficient and the local lady who handsover the keys and show you around couldn't be better. In short highly recommended.
