Villa Description

The entry into Villa Solymar is a long driveway into a jungle paradise which takes you to the villa and the Caribbean Sea. The villa cannot be seen at all from the road...a luxury that provides privacy and enchantment.Villa Solymar is a charming Santa Fe style home with Tommy Bahama furnishings, original paintings and oriental rugs.

All rooms - upstairs and down - enjoy an ocean view and air conditioning. The downstairs includes a large living room with cozy, comfortable and elegant furniture. After a day of sunshine you can look forward to watching television or a good movie while someone else curls up with a good book. There are many couches, chairs, ceiling fans, a bar and a credenza filled with games. Also downstairs, the kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need and the dining room displays a gorgeous table with a marble column base, glass top and elegant Tommy Bahama chairs for a Caribbean flair. There are also dining tables pool side and garden side so you have many choices depending on your mood. Steaks on the grill, a Mexican meal prepared by the cook, or a picnic by the swimming pool: just make sure you have an icy cold drink in hand!

All three bedrooms in the main house are the same size and have large dressing rooms and beautiful bathrooms. The bedroom downstairs has a King-size bed and is called The Oriental Room because of the red silk furnishings and antique bronze Buddhas from Japan. The two upstairs bedrooms both have stunning illuminated brick domed ceilings and are separated by a large private outdoor balcony which is terrific for shade or sun; lying in a hammock or getting an all over tan. One bedroom is called Las Pinas, which means "The Pineapples", because of the Tommy Bahama rattan and wicker king-size bed and furnishings decorated with pineapple fabrics and a pineapple trimmed rug. This room is also adorned with reproductions of fascinating Mayan artifacts and an original Bill Guynes portrait of a Mayan woman. The second bedroom upstairs is called Las Cocas and has two twin beds with white wicker furniture, oriental rugs, coconut palm fabrics and lamps as well as original paintings by Gayle Walker.

The views from Villa Solymar are gorgeous; the elegant and unusual half-moon swimming pool with a backdrop of coral reef, water geysers shooting up into the air and boats sailing by in the ocean. A panoramic view of the aquamarine Caribbean Sea.

An air conditioned guest house is available at extra cost. It is located as a second floor over the garage with a private view of the surrounding gardens and birds. This room is called The Jungle Room because of the views and furnishings which include lots of wicker furniture and monkey fabrics! It has a King-size bed, sitting area with TV and movies, kitchen and bathroom.

Villa Solymar is comfortable, beautiful and private, the perfect vacation villa. Nidia is there to make you continental breakfasts and also provides manicures and pedicures at a reasonable cost.

Villa Solymar is an experience you should not miss. Elegance and comfort mixed with a Caribbean adventure - a great vacation.

Everything was delightful! Mari Jo was so much help during our planning. Rhett was very helpful and informative -- especially about the gas stations! Everything he said about them was true! The home was lovely. Luis and Nidi was terrific. The photographs on line truly reflected the beauty of the home. We will definitely recommend your services to others and look forward to returning to Akumal some time soon. Thank you all for a wonderful vacation.

This is our first visit to Akumal and Solymar.Our family had a great time.We all loved the pool and the ocean waves crashing at the rocks.The kids collected numerous treasures from the beach-rocky shoreline, again and again, they enjoyed exploring.The best snorkeling was the lagoon, we saw several turtles in Akumal Playa.The Tulum playa was absolutely fantastic.I explored the ruins while my kids and husband went swimming.What a kick-back, relaxing vacation!The kids will always remember Luis cracking open a coconut right out of it's tree, one for each kiddo!Nidia's cooking and upkeep of the house were both fantastic!We would love to come back to your gorgeous home. Muchas gracias!
