“Like a dream”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 for a stay in October 2012

Sombras Del Viento was fantastic. I went here on my honeymoon with my new wife. Loic and his wife were so friendly and helpful, and we felt at home immediately. Miguel and Allejandra were also wonderful.

We had access to snorkeling equipment, kayaks, and paddleboats whenever we wanted, and were able to explore Solimon Bay on our own. The beach was full of seaweed, but that's okay, because that's how real beaches are! There is a pool, in case you don't want the saltwater or waves.

One of my business partners secretly contacted Loic while we were there, and with his help, set us up with a romantic honeymoon snorkeling trip through a nearby cenote. We thought it was wonderful that Loic was so helpful to set this up for us.

We were also there while some tortugas eggs were about to be hatched. Loic and his wife had blocked off the area with sticks. They were born 2 days after we left, and Loic sent us photos of the tiny turtles.

We will hopefully be back to Sombras Del Viento in the future.

“Lovely house but Soliman Bay NOT quiet”
Reviewed May 11, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

I would recommend the house itself but with a huge caveat about the noise and types of renters in surrounding properties.

My husband, 7 year old son and I chose Soliman Bay for our much needed 2 week holiday because all the reviews said it is quiet, pristine and tranquil. The house itself was beautiful, spacious and perfect for our family - and would be great for a bigger family of maybe 3 kids. It was nice to have the shaded pool for swimming when it was too hot mid-day to be in the open sun on the ocean. The gardens are beautiful and the house is very well taken care of. We enjoyed both the owners, who are very friendly and accommodating, and also Alejandra and Miguel who take care of the house.

However, the neighbourhood is not quiet at all. It gives the feeling of a enclosed community that was once tranquil but which has been recently invaded by loud drinking parties - more the Cancun style. Out of 9 nights we had 2 or 3 good nights of sleep - the rest we were forced to listen to loud, boisterous parties and the worst night,a disco that continued with loud pounding music till 2.30 am. Apparently, you can make as much noise as you like until 11pm and under Mexican law there is nothing anyone can do about it, but there was not much anyone was willing to do about the noise after that either. For this reason, I don't think we would stay here again, at least until the community manages to restore some calm, if that's possible.

We ended up leaving early and finding a quieter place further south on the peninsula. The owners were exceedingly flexible and understanding, and did note that these disruptions were a new occurrence.

Interestingly, when we went further south, we found the reef was in much better shape.

Management Response
May 10, 2012
Thank you for your comments. We are very sorry this incident happened during your stay and wish we could have done more to alleviate the situation while you visited our home.
We also come for rest and relaxation and this week was not the most pleasant with some of the Bays visitors.

Noise is not the norm in Soliman Bay, most times it is a very enjoyable quiet piece of heaven, but occasionally there are groups that ruin it for the rest because of their own agenda.
Slowly the community is growing just like all the Riviera Maya and we will make every effort to keep the Bay a tranquil place to visit. With Warmest Regards....
