My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Dolce Vita. We were thrilled with the beautiful location right on the Caribbean beach as well as the lovely pool and tropical gardens. We were never more than a few steps away from the beach or without a magnificent ocean view, even during breakfasts. Chris and Connie were very gracious hosts preparing the most wonderful breakfasts and anticipating our every need during our entire stay. They get it just right, being available whenever needed, yet always respecting our privacy. The Soliman Bay area is beautiful and very serene making for a very relaxing stay. Yet, the towns of Tulum and Akumal are close enough that we never lacked for interesting places to visit or things to do and there is a great variety of good restaurants in the area. We were sad to leave, but hope to return for another visit!

We loved Villa Dolce Vita! It is beautiful, clean and a fantastic location! There is so much to do that is so close by and you can kayak, snorkel or swim right from the Inn. Plus, Chris makes the most fabulous breakfasts!!! We will definitely go back!

Outstanding! We couldn't have been happier with our stay at Villa Dolce Vita. The setting right on the Caribbean beach is absolutely gorgeous. The photos on the internet really do not do it justice. Everything about the property is immaculate ---- our room, the beautiful tropical gardens, the crystal clear pool, even their raked beach. Soliman Bay is perfect for snorkeling, swimming and kayaking as it is protected from large ocean swells by a reef and what a delight it was to relax in the beach hammocks with a cold drink right by the water's edge. The rooms were very comfortable and nicely decorated. (I sometimes have back problems and was appreciative of the memory foam topped mattresses. Apparently we were one of the first guests to try these out. A+) The breakfasts were a real treat. At home we usually do not have much for breakfast, but we found ourselves looking forward to their breakfasts each morning ........ the food is truly gourmet quality, beautifully presented and with such variety. Add the beautiful table settings and the view of the Caribbean while you are eating, and you really have something memorable. The hosts/owners Chris and Connie made our stay truly special. They are personable and helpful, yet never over-bearing. They gave us wonderful advice as to where to find romantic little places to dine and to walk unspoiled beaches (beaches both right there on Soliman Bay and nearby). I almost forgot to mention the totally romantic evenings..........slipping out of our room onto the beach with a bottle of wine to listen to the ocean sounds and gaze up at the stars. In every way it was just the vacation that we were hoping for to rekindle romance. We'll be back!
Its always easy to be gracious hosts with wonderful guests
