This lovely place is by far the best B&B My husband and I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. There are several ways to describe it: spotless, comfortable, beautifully appointed rooms, relaxing, excellent location and worth every penny. Jacque is a tremendous chef (the best meals bar none), charming and delightful hostess, and has a smile to light up the room. Do yourself a favour.....book here, you will not be disappointed! We had the Ocean room. We arrived as guests....left as good friends!

It was an absolute pleasure for me to host you and your husband. I especially enjoyed the delight you experienced the night of the 3 flavored seafood dinner. And your right, we became friends. It is part of what I love about having a B&B. Love and Hugs, Jacque

“A Cottage Feel in the Yucatan!”
Reviewed March 26, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

was so fortunate to find this homey, clean, friendly Bread and Breakfast so close to the beach and cooled by beautiful afternoon breezes. Jackie was a wonderful spontaneous and caring host. She was a wealth of knowldege and so helpful with any questions or concerns. A dog named Kitty was always by her side or waiting patiently for her return. I felt part of the household here and not just a guest. The bed was super comfortable and the hammock on the upstairs deck was so appreciated.

“Great location to explore the Progreso area!”

person found this review helpful

Ok. I admit it. I booked this place because the hosts' dog's name was "Kitty!" With that sense of humour, I figured this would be a great place to stay for a few nights. And, it was!
Pro's included
1. location. We were able to park our rented car in front of the B and B, and explore Progreso by walking!
2. price. We're a budget-minded couple who count our pesos carefully. This B and B was worth it! We loved the decor, the ambience, and the charm of the house itself.
3. uniqueness. We're not the 'all inclusive' or chain hotel kind of people. Our hosts were friendly, sincere, and often funny and we enjoyed our time with them and their other (Canadian guests.) We had a lovely fish dinner prepared by our host Clinton.
4. accommodating. Staying with Jacque and Clinton was a pretty last minute kind of a deal. They were very accommodating - including food allergies, etc.

PS Just so you know, there can be additional charges … $4.00 for the wine, $10.00 for a bit of laundry. Totally understandable but not stated in print. Wifi was a bit 'iffy' but that wasn't a problem for us.

Thank you for your review and indicating how we can improve. I really appreciate it.

I have just completed a room guide listing all of our services and the prices we charge. Which is now printed and in each room, so your comment is very timely.

All the best to you.

“It was the perfect place for our mother/daughter retreat!”

person found this review helpful

Abrazarse Life was the ideal place for our mother/daughter retreat. Jacque and Clinton were amazing hosts, providing the comforts of home while introducing us to authentic local culture. The Ocean room and meals at the Casa were fabulous. Just a block off the beach seaside shops and restaurants are within walking distance. We had everything we wanted close at hand, including yoga in the park across the street. When we did venture further off our hosts became perfect guides taking us day trips to see remote cenotes, flamingos near Celestun, the Mayan site at Uxmal temples and shoe shopping in Ticul.

We enjoyed our stay at this B&B in Progreso. Jacque and Clinton were extremely good hosts and gave us lots of good information about the area. The location was great as it was one block from the Malecon and was easy to walk to most places. The accomodation was good with clean and spacious rooms.
