My girlfriend and I had a wonderful stay at Casa Tambuco and hope to do it again! Great room, great breakfasts, Mariano is a great host. Very convenient location to the town and beach. You won't be disappointed.
Mariano is a wonderful host and we enjoyed our stay at Tambuuco Casandra. It's a short 2 block walk to the beach and comfortable beach chairs were provided. It's also very easy to walk along the beach to the shopping mall. But a car is useful if you plan to visit the surrounding areas. We had a little difficulty finding it the first night, but the security people led us there by motorcycle. After that it was easy to get the lay of the land. Very quiet at night and loved waking up to the sound of birds every morning. Fresh drinking water was supplied each day and breakfast was varied and delicious.
We stayed in Mariano's place for 3 nights in Feb. It was a very quiet place and very close to the beach. We found that it is really a hideaway gem away from the busy 5th Avenue. Breakfast is good and we love the place.
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay. As other guests have mentioned, our room was spacious, comfortable and clean. We loved waking every morning to the sound of the birds and the ocean. The breakfasts were great, fresh fruit, juice, and a different main entrée every morning. You cannot beat the location, a beautiful, safe neighborhood, a very short walk to a quiet beach and only a 10 minute walk to downtown Playa.
Mariano is a gracious host and we felt very comfortable the entire time. We will definitely be back!
Gorgeous place and wonderful host.
My husband and I just spent over a week at Casa Tambuuco and we loved it!
Mariano is a great host and most interesting person. His charming house is absolutely lovely and very unique. The rooms and amenities are comfortable, clean and exactly as per pictures. The location couldn’t be better – very close to the beach but private and quiet at the same time. Yet just about 10 minutes walk to the lively 5th Ave. You can hear the ocean and enjoy birds chirping every morning. The neighborhood is really nice with beautiful villas, lots of trees and most amazing beach.
Bella – the cook will win your heart with amazing breakfast every morning. As matter of fact all the staff at the Casa is very helpful and friendly.
We truly enjoyed the experience and will most definitely choose Casa Tambuuco when returning to Playa.
Mariano is a very friendly and kind host - we enjoyed every minute in his lovely house. He definitley demonstrates his good taste in furniture and decoration. His housemaids are the good spirit of this home - their breakfasts were unbelievable and great! The rooms are just like on the pictures and you feel right at home. The beach is just a very short walk away (just a few metres through the lovely neighbourhood - you can hear the waves from the room). As well the beach is not as crowded as in other parts of Playa.
The 5th avenida is just (or luckily) a short walk of 10 minutes away with it's shops and busy nightlife. That means that you can enjoy a calm and relaxing stay at Mariano's without beeing too far away from the action.
We really enjoyed our stay and were very happy that we have chosen this option and not a crowded all-inclusive-hotel or the hotels in the city center. We would definitely come back!
Mariano is extremely nice and very helpful. His vast collections of interesting books make everyday spent on the beach counts. Casa Tambuuco, designed and built by Mariano himself, is both magnificent and lovely, and very eco-friendly. I would definitely like to stay in Casa Tambuuco again if I have opportunities to travel to Playa in the future.
Mariano's "new old house" is exactly as pictured on the photos and even better. Large space, high ceilings and many windows allow for a unique experience of living AC-free comfortably if one chooses to do so. The house is located on a quiet street and is surrounded by trees, so the singing of birds is the only sound you will wake up to. The beach is a short walk away and the area is very safe with friendly people everywhere. Bella (the chef) prepares delicious breakfasts and together with Mariano creates a wonderful a home away from home atmosphere.
I loved my stay at Mariano's. His house is beautiful, naturally cool and very quiet (far enough away from the noise in the centre), perfectly situated just steps from the beach and the 15 minute walk down that beach to the centre is always glorious! The rooms are gorgeous, comfortable and large (very well represented by the site's photos). Mariano himself is very welcoming but not intrusive, gracious and eloquent. Bella, his cook, is wonderfully warm and very creative (a different "main course" for her very large breakfasts every day!). Wonderful place to stay! Would recommend it to anyone!! I would return anytime!
habitación muy amplia con cama king size, con baño muy grande y una hamaca súper cómoda. todo muy limpio, el desayuno era increíble, hecho a mano en el día. Mariano es muy agradable y simpático, nos aconsejo muy bien para conocer la zona. esta en una urbanización preciosa con seguridad y al lado del centro de playa del Carmen y a no más de 50 metros de la playa. esperamos volver pronto. gracias Mariano!!!!
