A slice of Heaven

5 on January 09, 2014

I visited Casa de Las Olas from October 18-25, first time in Tulum. I plan on returning to this property in 2014...a marvelous piece of heaven, and an awesome staff. I travelled solo picking up a rental car in Cancun, and making the drive down. Although I would advise anyone attempting to do this to really look into an automatic car, because downshifting upon all the speed bumps (topes) is kind of a pain. Don't bother with a GPS, everything is easy to find, and Sam will supply you with a map to all the hot spots. Sam, Jimmy, Mari, Antonio...are an excellent and attending group of folks who made my visit very personal. I had an ocean front suite which was perfect. Don't over pack...daily wear is quite casual and you live in a swim suit. The beach is immaculate thanks to Antonio. There was a small kitchen in my suite, and groceries are available a few minues from the property.Everything is in the metric look that over before you drive or shop for groceries. There was some rain the last two days of my stay, but it's so warm..who cares? I would recommend this property to's remote, private, ultra clean and very well run.This would not be a place for kids...and that's why I like it! Jimmy is an excellent host, and Sam made my stay extra special. Every experience I had with the both of them was so memorable, and shopping in town was a great would help to have some of the language down, which I intend to do before I return. Most folks I encountered had a bit of English, and if they didn't, hand gestures and smiles went a long way. Thanks to everyone at Casa for making my trip a healing experience and a special time for me. Don't miss the ruins in COBA, A Mayan Clay Massage, and the chance to eat all the Cerviche ( El Camillos in town) you can! :)
