Hubby and I recently spent 8 days and nights at Casa Jacqueline. I gotta say- this was the most memorable, lovely time either one of us have had staying in a B&B. What a lovely home and so incredibly well thought out and appointed. Literally anything we could think of needing or wanting was addressed, straight down to the details. It’s in an excellent location, so peaceful and unique. Almost equidistant between Akumal and Tulum with a very short drive or cheap taxi ($16 US to Tulum centro). Just seconds away from sticking your toes in the sand, watching the occasional sea turtle and crabs and just a couple minute walk away to Solomon Bay where daily, we went swimming, fly fishing and and had tasty michelada’s and ceviche at Chamico’s. The best part? David and Jackie. What neat, neat people they are. We felt so lucky to be a part of their lives and get to know them. They were not only helpful when it came to the in’s and out’s of getting around town, but are great all around conversationalists with a rad perspective on life. We’ll definitely be back- all the while daydreaming about Jackie’s seriously killer breakfasts, laughs shared and cuddle time with sweet Peggy. :) See you soon! C&J

Great location just minutes from the center of Tulum, located in a quiet and lovely neighborhood, beautiful beach across the street, and a Cenote a block away. Beautiful new house, nice separation of guest quarters from residence. Delicious breakfast served on the patio overlooking the yard and mangroves, providing a wildlife show each morning of birds and a fox! Very comfortable rooms, nice pool and the view from the roof was fantastic. Highly recommend.

We stayed at Casa Jacqueline for a week, which went by way too fast. Each day began with new and delectable breakfast items. There was enough food to keep us going for hours. The breakfast was served to us on the back patio which was caressed by light breezes. It was hard to push away from the table and leave the B&B to explore the near-by activities.The bedrooms are large, each has an inviting private seating area, as well as a private balcony. We stayed on the second floor and appreciated the sound of the water and waves as we fell asleep. The roof-top area has a hot tub and a seating area where one can look at the Caribbean or the sunset. As others have said, there is plenty to do near-by and in Tulum. One day we went to Tulum Beach and had a lovely afternoon eating at Ziggy's and walking the beach. We were with another couple and one person went snorkeling and saw large schools of tropical fish. Tulum is a town not overrun with tourists. It is what I think of as authentic Mexico. And Casa Jacqueline is the perfect B&B from which to explore it all.

At Casa Jacqueline breakfast was served according to our preferences. The hearty portions held us over easily until our next meal. Local fruit, freshly squeezed juice, coffee, pancakes, waffles, eggs and bacon were served with a smile and a cheerful "good-morning." The location of this B & B is perfect. It's close to town; just 5 to 10 minutes by car, but away from noise of the city. Ive stayed at all-inclusive resorts in Cancun, but this is a far superior experience. Casa Jacqueline has two suites, so you and another couple can have the place to yourselves if you wish. If you are traveling with more than two couples, ask Jacqueline to recommend accommodations for the others in your party. There are several B&B's within walking distance and some inns as well. The suites are clean and bright. Cushy bathrobes, soft towels and high quality bedding made for a pampered stay. The spacious two-level room includes two small couches, a king-size bed, lots of pillows, ceiling fans, ac, a small fridge and speakers for music. There is a patio on the 1st floor. We stayed on the second floor, and could watch the occasional car go by from the balcony. There is plenty of closet space, and safes are included for valuables. The decor is a combination of traditional Mexican style and fun, whimsical design, including star-shaped lamps and traditional wood furnishings. The walls are painted in deep, intense colors that fit in perfectly with the overall mood. Everything is solidly built, with ceramic tile on all floor surfaces and in the bathroom. The pool is kept at the perfect temp for relaxing before or after a day in town. On the roof, we soaked away our aches in the hot tub/jacuzzi. The view from the roof has to be seen! The aqua ocean across the road is breathtaking. Further down the road is a cenote where we snorkeled, seeing blue crabs and hundreds of fish. I've stayed at Casa Jacqueline twice. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

We recently stayed a week at Casa Jacqueline in Tankah (10 mins from Tulum). Our stay was just wonderful. The rooms were charming and clean. Our hosts were warm and gratious and always helpful with information about the many wonderful diversions around. Wonderful beaches, restaurants, snorkeling etc. Speaking of food, Jacqueline really knows how to cook. Deliciuos! Our rooms were just accross the street from the ocean. The smell and the breeze were intoxicating. Especially when on the roof at night. Oh...the stars. Highly recommended TT
