Cool Caribbean breezes will follow you everywhere in this Spanish Colonial villa and with 3600 square feet and views of the ocean from nearly every room in the house, you will feel like royalty!
This villa is furnished with lovely hardwoods and artistic touches from renowned artists.

The entire beach side of the house is fronted with large bay windows that bring the outside in. Just a few steps away from the large, open living room and kitchen area is the swimming pool. The bedrooms are wonderfully decorated with the warm, bright colors of Mexico and you will find custom mosaics in each of the bathrooms. Step out on the Romeo and Juliet veranda and sip a Margarita on the Mahogany day bed.

Villa Orquidea is a very tired and poorly maintained property with inadequate facilities that do not live up to the described expectation.
Location wise it is excellent but that doesn’t make up for its serious shortcomings.
Our most serious problem was that whilst we were there one of the bedrooms was unusable due to the damp mouldy smell and we had booked the villa because we needed 5 rooms .
The chefs were also a big disappointment as after the first day they did very little and served up unappetising unimaginative insubstantial meals (we ate out a lot!)
We had a heavy solid glass ornament fall from the double height ceiling one day narrowly missing my grandson and one day we had waste water pouring into the house from the sink in the downstairs toilet....these incidents are symptomatic of the state of the property.
Lots of small problems like only having 6 sun beds for a house that takes 10.....why when they are charging top rates for the property??
I also have to report that unfortunately to date we have not had any satisfactory response from Akumal Properties following our advise is don’t use them and definitely don’t rent villa Orquidea until they have given it a long overdue refurb!!"

"Lots of fun at Christmas
The property is great. Location, Condition, Service, access.
Freddy and Daisy do a FANTASTIC job of cleaning every day and making sure everything is in perfect condition.
The chef option is fantastic as well. We highly recommend taking advantage of this feature.
My suggestion to the OWNER: You need to invest in a Television which can be seen (i.e. 40-60") and one which is not 10 years old. The DVD player needs to be replaced, as it is corroded and works marginally. We brought out favorite Christmas movies but could not watch as the equipment is too small to be seen by 12 people... disappointing for what we paid. (this is the only negative, and 100% the responsibility of the owner; not the staff)."

"Spring Break
Pampered to perfection.
Three families, five grandchildren. The moms got a real vacation with Victor cooking and doing kitchen duty for 12 hours each day."

"Great vacation house!
We--couple plus gronw children, their spouses, and children--had a fantastic time at Villa Orquidea. The house is beautiful and comfortable, the location terrific, and the staff so warm and helpful."

"Beautiful House
Great house and trip. Freddie and Daisy were fantastic, couldn't have asked for anything better. "

"Better Than Described
Perfect. The home and property are spacious, clean, private, beautifully decorated. The guest house is really nice if you're traveling with multiple families. The property managers, housekeeper, security guard, and personal chef were kind, professional, and treated us like family. We definitely recommend having a private chef fix your meals (it's cheaper and easier than eating out!) We would recommend this property x1000!"

"Good Not Great
The pros,

The property is very nice, spacious, and clean. The house is as advertised and the pictures are accurate. The staff at Akumal Properties were very good to work with and I will use them again. Lots of shade for kids, and a lot of outdoor seating. Finally, the best for last, Chef Manny was incredible. Food was top notch and their service was nothing but amazing. Thank You Manny for making our trip.

The cons,
The groundskeeper and his wife the house keeper were not very helpful. Had to consistently ask for towels, water, & basic necesities and they seemed very bothered when we asked them. The furniture in the house is not the best, a little worn and uncomfortable. Lastly, the pool is gross! Cloudy all week and had a little smell to it, the grounds keeper does not know how to maintain the pool. It was a little depressing looking at the house to both sides and seeing a crystal clean pool and then watching your kids play in a cloudy smelly pool. I would use Akumal Properties again, I just would not stay at this house.

"BEST vacation EVER !!
Wow !!! Enjoyed THE best family vacation ever !!! THANK YOU to Martina and Rhett and the Akumal Properties "team" !! This was our first time to the Mayan Riviera ... Absolute paradise ! Hubby and I took our 20-yr. old, 17-yr. old and 11-yr. old - we ALL had the "best vacation ever" ! All kids were sad to leave ... Soo much to do - we snorkeled and kayaked in beautiful waters with colorful fish and sealife, swam and snorkeled in a local Cenote (WOW !!), took advantage of our shaded hammocks for afternoon "siestas", enjoyed WONDERFUL local fare in Tulum (terrific homemade ice cream) and only a 3-minute scenic stroll for "to-die-for" gourmet dishes and pizzas at a local restaurant on our beach ! Property was superb and secure ... Beautiful view, tons of room, and helpful on-site caretaker available at all times. Martina went out of her way to make our family vacation happen ! Could not have been better !! Already planning our next get-away with Akumal Properties ! :)"

"Villa Orchida
Absolutely wonderful time. Jose and Marisol were great. We all had a wonderful time. Home is perfect along with the best view in the area. Loved having coffee and cocktails on the roof watching the sunrise and sunsets. Thank you for having a Christmas tree set up upon our arrival "

"Best property in Tankah!!!
We spent an amazing time at Villa Orquidea. This property is stunning! We'll never forget that week."

"Luxury on Tankah Bay
Villa Orquidea is nothing short of marvelous. The property is magnificent, with finishes of the highest quality, and furnishings to match. No detail has been overlooked. Jose attended to our every need, despite the fact that his wife Marisol was staying with her mother in Akumal, in anticipation of the imminent birth of their second child. Jose and sister Anna prepared fabulous dinners and breakfasts. Don't miss the chiles rellenos, and the huevos rancheros. Jose's Mexican Flag after dinner drink is a must do! Colorful, flamboyant, fun, and tasty. We kayaked out to the reef every day, where the snorkeling was some of the best we've ever experienced. All manner of colorful tropical fish; even a sea turtle, langosta, and several nurse sharks. Large schools of small fish (chub?), 1,000 or more at a time. With pleasant security personnel unobtrusively keeping an eye on things at night, we always felt safe. We enjoyed pizza and Caribbean Fish at the Blue Sky, where Leo runs a great restaurant. Tankah Bay is a beautiful, quiet setting. No high rises or mega resorts. Perfect! Direct access into the water is difficult, and you'll want sturdy Tevas, Keens, or surf shoes for beach walking. The beach is not really a walking beach, though we did walk all the way down to Dreams. Day trips to Akumal Bay, the Tulum ruins, and the Tulum beaches provided some nice variety; and we were always happy to return to our haven on Tankah Bay. I would strongly recommend Villa Orquidea to anyone who is seeking a luxury, beach front vacation, with all the amenities of home."

"Escape to Paradise
Villa Orquidea is a perfect escape from the hussle & bussle of many popular vacation destinations -- a true hidden paradise! The villa is close enough to many exciting excursions, but also allows for total relaxation if that's what you need. "

"Christmas Orquieda 2011
Wonderful caretakers.Wonderful caretakers again.
Internet was a problem.
Great new house designed very well.
Very private.

"Nice and relaxing
We had a great time. It went mostly very well. I would have rated it higher if the service had been more professional. However, being a remote beach area in Mexico, I should have adjusted my expectations accordingly. All in all, we enjoyed our vacation very much and the house was wonderful."

"Family Vacation and Celebration
The family of twelve had a great time. The Casitas were also used. The house was well equipped to entertain the group.

The location was great for water activites and adventures. We did a lot of the cooking and enjoyed shopping in Tulum and Aukmal.

"luxurious home
this is a very beautiful and exceedingly comfortable new home that has every amenity . it is a total delight to stay in. the traveller should know it is down a bumpy gravel road(that runs along tankah bay (where other luxury homes are located). a reef surrounds the bay so entrance to water for swimming is not ideal but typical for Akumal and Soliman Bay. This location holds much interest for those who want to kayak, snorkel and dive or explore nearby ruins, adventure and eco-parks or sunbathe on the flawless beaches of tulum. I doubt there is a more wonderful home base from which to enjoy the many pleasures of the mayan riviera than villa orquidea!"

"Orquida visit
Please read these as areas the owner could improve - not criticisms (we did enjoy the tripa and the property:
Hot water was only warm. asked Jose to turn up but little change
Kitchen knives way too dull for any cooking
Dogs barked all night on several days. kept several in our party awake
Complementary meals and cooking services not clear. Jose does not understand or explain well. ( we missed the complementary meal )
On a positive note the bedding, towels, cleanliness were all excellent."
Nov 15, 2010 - Charles M., Yulee, FL

Fantastic house in a wonderful location with (almost) everything you could possibly need provided. The only things missing were a dishwasher and snorkeling equipment which is a must to enjoy the undersea life in the bay and on the reef near the house. The house was not ready when we arrived (some confusion over dates), but the on-site staff quickly remedied that situation. Occasional problems (wi-fi and safe combination setting) were quickly resolved. Expect the occasional power outage - normal for the region. Close to wonderful beaches at Tulum and in Sian Ka'an Biosphere. Overall, very highly recommended. "
