By far the best and most unique place we have ever stayed at, the hospitality was amazing and felt so welcome! It was a pleasure to meet Dan, Heika Michelle and Fernando and also the four legged furry kids Valintino, chocolatte, Pink and Vince which helped us with missing out little baby back at home!
We had the treetop cabana and it was beautiful, we could see the sun rise from the balcony which was stunning and being as we visited in October which was meant to be the rainy season we didn't have a drop of it so was very lucky.
Nothing was a problem and was advised on the best places to visit (the secret ones that you won't find a lot of tourists at) even taken to a couple of places, the food was unbelievable, Fernando the chef blew us away and enjoyed tequila tasting along side some unforgettable story's in the evening with Michelle and Heika!
We spent our last night in an all inclusive hotel near the airport before flying back and although it was ok it kinda felt like our holiday was over already as it didn't have the heart of Xamach Dos!
We will be back guys! X
This was the perfect place. ABSOLUTE PARADISE. Coconuts growing wild everywhere, the ocean breeze flowing through our treehouse, instant fun friends to hang with and the chef who needs his own TV show, his food was THAT good! Two gorgeous women run the place along with the owner Dan. They all work so very hard and it shows. I want to get married here one day!
Xamach Dos was an amazing experience. We stayed for three days and that was the perfect amount of time, it is secluded and a decent drive away from town so it is nice to take time to enjoy it once you arrive. The staff is welcoming and fun. They make themselves available and have great input about things to do and see. The food and drinks(!) were fantastic.
We left feeling both relaxed and like we had some great adventures.
Xamach Dos was a great place to stay. This is the nature reserve experience I was looking for in tropical Mexico. Everyone was very helpful and very friendly. It felt rather like a reunion with old friends rather than resort help being helpful. Michelle, Heika and Fernando were wonderfully accommodating. Fernando is fantastic cook with great stories.
The natural world is all around with kayak use to get to the coral reefs just off shore. The skies are full of interesting birds and the night life are the sounds of the nocturnal wild animals instead of music blaring from a dance club. The Mayan ruin across the road was also a treat. All in all this exceeded my expectations for the kind of nature preserve, secluded experience I was looking for.
Awe! Thanks so much for the review! We thoroughly enjoyed you while you were here...oh and you missed the dance party last night in the kitchen... Yup we had the stereo cranked! Ha ha!
A great place to stay, a real experience!
A perfect slice of seclusion, on the beach in beautiful Sian Kaan. The place is about an hour from Tulum along a bumpy country road - we stopped to see Crocodile at the bridge and were lucky to see two huge crocs!! Great start to the trip.
Food was great - yummy and spicey. However worth flagging here that this isn't the place for you to base yourself if you want lots of restaurants and noise. They have a wonderful on site kitchen, but is a little too far from Tulum to eat anywhere else if you fancied it.
We stayed in Treetop which was on stilts and on the beach, we woke up at 5am to watch the sunrise, a really lovely way to start the day.
We also went out for the day to Punta Allen which is around an hour on again down the same bumpy road. Here we saw Dolphins and Sea Turtle - amazing, a must do!!
Overall this place was fun, isolated away from annoying resort types who frequent Mexico and set in beautiful surroundings.
If you are after luxury with flat screen TVs, this isn't the place for you. But if you want something more of an experience then I would recommend!!
We had an amazing time at Xamach Dos. As soon as we arrived we were welcomed by the friendly staff. We had a great and relaxing stay in the treetop cabana, and can't imagine a better place to celebrate our anniversary. Thanks to Heika and Michelle and Fernando for making us feel at home, for suggesting a few great places to visit (local tacos away from the touristy stuff, the incredible ruins at Coba, and cenotes!) Fernando's dinners were super delicious and we rushed back on days out to make sure we would make it home in time for dinner! The staff surprised us on our anniversary with a cake! Such a super nice gesture. Thanks again for helping us celebrate in such a special place. We also appreciated the advice about renting a jeep--the road down from Tulum is super bumpy but this spectacular place is worth the trip. We also took out kayaks and borrowed snorkel equipment from Heika--the water is a clear and warm and bright blue. Xamach's spot on the ocean is amazing and remote... yes there is seaweed but once you get out past the edge, the swimming was fine. We loved hanging in the hammocks with the friendly dogs, and we can't stop telling other people about this special place. Thanks so much and we'll be back soon!
Our expectations were surpassed. Paradise! Even the drive down was an adventure! We loved it all: the dogs (Chocolate, Tino, and Vincent); the entertainment, I mean staff (Michelle, Fernando, Heike, and Dan); the food (thank you Fernando); the ambience (we had the place to ourselves); the vibe!
Our time at Xamach Dos was very special. Thank you Michelle for understanding this and catering to our every need. You guys made this our best trip together so far!
Hugs to the dogs, the best guards over the treehouse!
We absolutely enjoyed having you both! Thanks for the kind words and we hope you come back soon!
The Xamach Team!
This was the best and most relaxing vacation I've had in years, not to mention the hosts were incredibly accommodating.
I got there knowing what to expect, so for those vacationers looking for a luxury resort, please do your research. There is no tv, phone or anything close by. Everything I needed to enjoy this paradise was on site, the food amazing and scenery breathtaking.
I will definitely be going back!!!
Lawrence so glad you enjoyed yourself! We miss you and can't wait to see you again!
We loved or time here! The people are great, good food, our room was amazing but that view and the fact that you wake up and you on the beach.. Well it was heaven for me! We even loved that we had very little cell service. It the perfect place to get away and disconnect for a few days. The road was bumpy but very worth it!
We're already planning our next trip
Thanks so much Trina... We told you one day wouldn't be enough! Ha ha! Hopefully we will see you soon!
Breathtaking views, good hospitality, excellent location. The Treetop was outstanding, and the accommodations were well received. Dan and family were fantastic in taking care of our relaxation. If you are interested in staying enjoy, you'll love it. Also, if you play chess I recommend Dan, great player - trick is get him to take shots and you'll open the door to potential victory. :)
Ryan you and Karina were Rockstars! Thanks for staying and we can't wait to see you again soon!
Excellent guest! We highly recommend him!
thanks you for choosing our property to stay
No tuvimos una buena experiencia con el huesped, entrego la casa en un estado lamentable, no aceptamos mascostas y el trajo una, tambien nos faltaron toallas. No habiamos tenido antes una mala experiencia con un huesped y lamentablemente esta fua la primera.
Dan was a great guest. The place was left in great shape. I would certainly host him again!
Hands down one of the lovelier and special places you will find in Tulum. A wonderful place to go when you want to get away from it all. Dan and his little family make you feel so welcome, and the communal meals are not only delicious but give you a real feel for Mexico. I would love to keep this little gem a secret if I could and keep it all to myself!
Magical! Thanks, Dan and Michelle and co!!!
