Five stars aren't enough for this fantastic place right on the beach. Too many really great features to list them all but here are some that made our three-generation holiday for 16 family members the best ever: *child proof and child friendly. Swimming pool has a wonderful shallow "little kids end" so even the baby could splash around. Loads of pool toys to keep older kids occupied. Even the beach was kid-friendly--extremely shallow and placid waters meant no worries about dangerous waves or kids getting in too deep. Tv room had Xbox games for after dinner fun. High hairs and cribs available and set up for our arrival. *marvelous friendly staff. Luis kept the coolers and mixed drinks coming, suggesting terrific concoctions before we even knew we were thirsty. Chef Manuel and his crew shopped for and prepared a magnificent sit-down breakfast every morning followed by lunches, snacks and dinner all cooked to order. His specialty is Mexican cuisine but he had worked in a steakhouse previously so be sure to ask for his great homemade french fries. * plenty of space. Four en-suite spacious bedrooms with marble baths and walk in showers, plus a great loft with ocean-front balcony that had two additional single beds and sofas. So there was never any feeling of being cramped. Two of the bedrooms have both a king bed and a queen bed -- just the ticket mom, dad and kids. * Great very, very quiet location. The house is right next to a small hotel that hosted a noisy wedding our first night at the Villa. After that we could almost believe that we were alone on out deserted island--only the sound of waves. Nothing commercial in the area so if you crave the glitzy club scene, this is not the place for you. That said, our gang found Soliman not too far from water park, architectural ruins, mega-grocery store and Tulum. We ran out of time before visiting cenotes in the area. * lots of toys- kayaks, paddle boards and snorkel gear for the beach. Sound system. Pool light show. Large tv with Seattle (?) cable, premium channels and games. Wifi. *. Great doing business with Barbara and Chris. Payment schedule handled quickly and in the specified installments. Deposit was returned within the week of our departure without any hassle. Barbara helped us set up transfers from airport with Namaste Transport. We all want to return and will definitely recommend this property to anyone looking for an over-the-too vacation. Much more to rave about at VV!
