The space

Xamach Dos, the secluded jewel of the Sian Ka'n Nature Reserve, just south of Tulum, Mexico.
Perfect for the adventurous individual or group, we are located on our own hidden Caribbean Bay, with an unspoiled reef system,, miles of deserted beaches, an incredible array of tropical wildlife, even our own hidden Mayan ruins!
There are 6 cabanas to chose from, each with it's own bathroom, and each with its own individual personality.
The Treetop- an amazing experience, on the water's edge, yet hidden in the palm trees. 1 queen bed, deck overlooking the ocean, beautiful bath with tiled shower/tub.
Cabana Balam- another amazing experience- totally secluded in the jungle yet close to the water. Incredible stone and coral shower, 1 queen bed.
Cabana Sol- Relax on the large front porch, take in the ocean views surrounded by custom stone and coral decor. 2 queen beds, large stone and coral bathroom.
Caban Luna- very private, on the far side of the property, with a nice porch of it's own. 2 queen beds, bath and shower.
Casa Grande- 2 bedrooms, each opening to a private lanai, spacious living room, nice bath. 1 queen bed and 2 full beds,
queen bed and 2 full beds.
Casa Secreta- smal but cool, invisble to the rest of the place. Custom stone and conch shell shower, 1 queen bed.
We have a great little restaurant in the middle of the property, a great place to hang out, view the beach, play games, and enjoy some of the best food on the coast.
Did I say Xamach Dos was a great place for a wedding?

I have written to Dan to complain about the cabana but he never bothered to respond. We left several phone messages on our way to the property but he never responded to those either. The drive there was hellish as the road is just a series of deep pot holes (we burst a tyre on ou…

Our stay at Dan's place was magical. Michelle, Heike, Gerrit and Julie took great care of us and the we met some lovely people. The cabana is basic, but is very clean and has everything one needs. The feeling of stepping out and being right on a beautiful beach for just us is ama…

It's hard to write a review about this hidden paradise as I sit at my desk back in cold grey London. My boyfriend and I were looking for a secluded spot on the beach to enjoy the last few days of our Mexican adventure. We couldn't have wished for anything better than Xamach Dos! …

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 tri…

We had a great time staying here. The beach was beautiful, the accommodations were perfectly rustic and Michelle and Heika made us feel so welcome. Snorkeling in the reef was an absolute highlight of our time there!
