We had a wonderful time at Sonia's apartment! It's beautiful. The air conditioner in the bedroom was key to our comfort on hot days, and the patio was great to spend time on in the evenings. Shower water pressure is low and the freezer didn't keep goods frozen, but that didn't matter; we loved our time there. Sonia was a gracious host-she directed us to delicious food nearby and was able to answer all of our questions. We were so happy we stayed in the town of Tulum. Thank you, Sonia!

This was a great little place in the heart of Tulum. The main centre for restaurants and cafes is just a couple of blocks away. We had acar which made getting to the beach (3-4 km) much easier. AC and fans a blessing for the warm weather, nice litte balcony out back for breakfast. Bathroom doesn't have doors (just curtains), if you're sensitive about that sort of thing...

Sonia was great to work with! We got into Tulum late and I was unable to contact her when we landed in Cancun as she requested (my fault, not hers!) but she stayed and waited to greet us and give us keys. Her instructions were very clear and communication was excellent. She even checked in half way into our 10 day stay to make sure everything was going well.

This sweet apartment is in a fairly quiet residential part of town,(don't let the exterior fool you) It was an easy walk to great food (wonderful tamales from a street vendor very near!) The kitchen area was well equipped for the modest food preparation we did. There were plenty of towels, etc. Decent WIFI, comfy sitting area with books. The patio was very private and a great place to have breakfast. Sonia was responsive to our trouble getting enough hot water for showers, which is a common issue in Mexico. The neighborhood felt very safe, my daughter & I often walked to the downtown area after dark. All in all, we had a wonderful stay in Tulum & are so grateful we found this gem of a place to stay at the last minute!

My daughter and I stayed at Casa Ambar y Balam in February and enjoyed it very much. Lots of space for the two of us with a huge bathroom and a comfortable bed. We really enjoyed the small patio and loved being in the centre of Tulum. We really felt like we lived there. Sonia was great to communicate with and always responded very promptly.
