“A perfect week, a perfect wedding”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

My partner and I rented Casa Buena Suerte for a week in March both as a wedding venue and vacation spot. We found Casa Buena Suerte online, and didn’t have an opportunity to visit prior to the actual week of the wedding. Casa Buena Suerte more than met our expectations. Hugo, the groundskeeper, met us at the gate and immediately made us feel at home. As we and our guests walked around the villa and the grounds, all we could hear (besides the waves and ocean breeze) was the repeated utterance of “wow” as people took in the architecture, the decorations, the pool, the beach, and the views of the bay. Casa Buena Suerte is all that it is advertised to be and more. Any house on the bay would have had a stunning view and beautiful beach, but the architectural details and the overall design aesthetic at Casa Buena Suerte make it the true gem of Soliman Bay. We walked all the way up and down the bay, and we can honestly say that Casa Buena Suerte is in a league of its own.

The architecture and the beach make this villa an incredible vacation spot, but the people who work here are what make the villa a home away from home. Hugo is an unbelievable asset. He makes sure everyone is comfortable, he runs errands, he answers questions, he arranges outings. The chefs were also magnificent, preparing fresh local meals and checking in every day on the menu selection—and their desserts were divine. In all ways, the staff’s attention to detail was extraordinary. For example, because we had told Marc (the owner) that we were getting married, when we first got to our room we found a giant flower arrangement and selection of fresh fruit waiting for us; it set the tone for an amazing week.

If you are thinking about this place for a wedding, you’ve made an excellent choice. My partner and I wanted someplace gay friendly—you don't get more gay-friendly than Casa Buena Suerte and the people who work with you there. Everyone is incredibly open, welcoming, and professional. The location is also perfect. We decided on Tulum as everyone could easily and affordably fly into Cancun airport. From there, car and van services got us and our guests to Soliman Bay at extremely reasonable prices. We did not want a cookie cutter resort-style wedding where our special event would become the evening’s tourist attraction for all the hotel’s other guests. In contrast, Casa Buena Suerte provided an amazing backdrop and the privacy and simple elegance we wanted. Marc’s recommended wedding planner, Donaji, was absolutely fabulous, as was the recommended van service, Motmot. The entire event was at the house, including cocktail hour, wedding ceremony, and reception. We and the wedding party then stayed on at the house for the subsequent week, relaxing and enjoying the beach. If you have a smallish wedding, this is definitely the place to do it. And for the cost you get a much more personalized experience than you could at any resort or reception hall, and you lose nothing in terms of professional expertise and attention to every need.

There are two things of which guests should be aware for planning purposes. First, you really can’t walk anywhere in terms of stores, except for a small convenience-type store at the end of the road. If you want to buy anything, you’ll have to rent a car, call for taxis, or ask Hugo to pick it up. To be honest, though, this is really part of the beauty of this place—you are truly secluded from the hustle and bustle. Second, don’t plan on being in regular contact via Internet. The villa has Wi-Fi, but the connection is slow. Again, though, if you have the right attitude (this is vacation, after all) this can actually be a plus. But if you’re planning on hanging out at the beach while getting some work done, the lack of connectivity could increase your stress level.

Overall, Casa Buena Suerte gets our unqualified endorsement, both as vacation spot and wedding venue. Our week here was magnificent, and we would not change a thing about our experience.

Thank you for tour fabulous review Chris. We are so glad that you and your guests enjoyed the villa. Some of our guests use a local driver to take them into Tulum or on day trips as you did, and others rent a car or mini van. Since it is easy to drive in the area and everything is so close by, we usually have a driver pick us up at the airport and then rent a car in Tulum. FYI, we recently got a new high speed internet service and it's great. We now get real hi speed wifi and you we even have access outside the villa! Best Regards - MK

Thanks for your review; so glad that you enjoyed our villa. Guests sometimes leave towels on the railings to dry and they can get rust stains - All new towels are on there way!
