Chances are you know the Beach Escape Villas by their previous names of Kin Ha Villas or Ambiance Villas. I have no idea why, but this quaint beach place keeps changing names at the rate of a new one every 2 years.
But no matter what it’s called, the Beach Escape Villas is an affordable, clean and very cute little place nested in one of Cancun’s best beaches: the Kin Ha beach (yes, there are several beaches along the Cancun strip, and not all of them are made alike). Living in Cancun, we always have visitors and sometimes there are too many to fit in our house, so we end up putting them in a hotel, and Beach Escape is usually our choice for this.
A complex of 4 or 5 buildings a mere three stories high, Beach Escape offers regular rooms and suites, all spacious and comfortable. They are sparingly decorated, but with their big balconies and wide sliding doors, one soon forgets about this and falls in love with the place. For long stays, it is highly advisable to splurge on a suite (usually $20 more per night), since they’re full apartments, with a fully functional kitchen, big living room and dining room and a master bedroom and bathroom with plenty of closet space.
Due to its intimate design, Beach Escape is NOT setup to offer All-Inclusive plans. They have a full service restaurant and a bar and snack tiki bar right on the beach, which serves full meals starting at 1PM. The food is quite tasty and their prices are reasonable. A full buffet breakfast is served every morning for about $11 per person, which plenty of hot and cold choices, freshly squeezed orange juice and an enormous selection of fresh fruit.
The piece de resistance at Beach Escape Villas is their beach. The whitest and cleanest in all of Cancun, this beach was voted one of the world’s best a few years back. Dotted with coconut trees and with a generous sand bar, it expands for over a mile, and its waters are so clear that you can clearly see your toes inside the water and the little swirl of sand they create with every step you take.
We recommend Beach Escape Villas for its wonderful beach and crystal clear waters, their oversized pool and relaxed atmosphere. But be prepared for its simple decor, older buildings and blah furniture. Despite this, we give Beach Escape a 4 star rating.
