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!
Amazing jungle experience. Dan And Michelle were nice and friendly And provvide us all The informations for visiting The area. The room is a fantastic cabana hidden in The jungle (but Just a few steps from The Sea And The main house!)
Food great, breakfast not included.
Great to spend some nights relaxing at the beach, that will be almost Just to yourself!!!
Lovely place they have in Sian Ka'an! Cozy, friendly, beautiful, and so hospitable! I had a great time. Michelle and Heike and Fernando were fun and funny and a bundle of laughs.
Things I wish I had known before going:
1. Just exactly how far it is from everything else. The drive to anything, and I mean ANYTHING is an hour plus. Seclusion is accurate! But lovely!
2. Because of the location, all meals really have to be eaten there, unless you take a day trip for lunch, which I did a couple times. Food was great, though! The whole team did a great job!
3. You have GOT TO have a car. Must.
4. Mosquitoes and heat WOWEEEE. Bring bug spray and ask for an extra fan!
Lots of seaweed this year, which seems to be hitting the entire Caribbean. Water wasn't really very nice to swim in, but activities beyond the coast (kayaking, boat tours, etc.) were super beautiful!
Thanks everyone for a lovely time! You made me feel taken care of and loved. :) xoxo
Seeing as I as won a coconut bocce ball game with Dan, my wife and I will have to come back in February to defend my title. Xamach Dos is an amazing experience, not just a great place to stay. Between the accidental hammock naps, kayaking out to the reef for snorkeling, delicious and fresh homemade food & great conversations with new friends, this place is highly recommended. Our friends have already asked us to write out directions and our itinerary for their future trips off the grid. We highly recommend the open air cabana Secreta. The sound of the ocean and wind blowing in the palms is so relaxing. Waking up to the sounds of the jungle and ocean are perfection.
So glad you two came into our lives! You belong here! See you in February oh and BTW we changed the date of the MCBBA Torneo, it's the 19 & 20! Miss you both!
Michelle (Dan's daughter) is a great host. She is always smiling and even though we got there super late, they were waiting for us and they were happy to serve us dinner.
Fernando is also great, he walked us to the ruins and helped us with their Kayak out to the reef. He is also an AMAZING cook. BEST fish with coconut and pineapple I ever had!
The rest of the crew is also really nice.
Its a remote private beach, perfect for a get-away from civilization!!!
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!!!
