We stayed at Tropical Evergreens, a fantastic large house (Casa Grande) with a separate Casita (two self-contained apartments). The setting is idyllic and the staff, Vicente and Mari were the most helpful people that you could imagine. Tulum and Akumal are a 10 minute drive away and Oscar y Lalo's restaurant is at the end of the private road leading to the highway.
The snorkelling is unbelievably beautiful and the bay is fantastic for swimming, kayaking or snorkelling. It is great for kids as there are no waves (the barrier reef further out keeps them away).
The main house sleeps 6/8 peope and the Casita sleeps another 4 people, so it is ideal for large family groups. You can rent the two properties separately if you are in a smaller group.
The fixtures and fittings are of a very high standard, all amenities are first class and the owner has a great eye for detail - some of the local arts and crafts really suit the decor and create a very Mayan ambience. We rented direct from the owners at www.tropicalevergreens.com
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Far away from the hustle of every day life is a peaceful retreat located on Soliman Bay between Akumal and Tulum. With white sand, blue green water, and palm trees you are as far from the maddening crowd as you can get. This vacation spot has it all. Cozy hammocks great for catching up on your reading, fabulous water adventures just outside your door, (snorkeling, scuba diving, deep sea fishing, you name it) or delve into a past that is thousands of years old, with the local Mayan ruins. Completed in December, 2000, Tropical Evergreens' casa grande and casita are decorated with exquisite local art and pottery. The native plants offer privacy from the neighbors as well as great cover for birds. There is nothing like waking up in the morning amidst the lush greenery of the jungle, with the quiet murmur of the ocean in the background. ... more less
