Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Puerto Morelos - CARIBBEAN REEF VILLAS

3 bedroom, 3 bath, formal dining room, beautiful beach. This one is a real WOW!!

The "Caribbean Reef Villa" complex is reviewed by 'Trip Advisors' as one of the best places in all of Puerto Morelos to stay. The piece and tranquility experienced at this small 21 unit complex is overwhelming. Also a great place for family vacations with 24/7 Security.

VACATION PARADISE, starts in this awesome, uniquely decorated, three huge bedrooms (master bedroom has Jacuzzi and walk in shower), three baths, formal dining room and a full sized kitchen with all the amenities to cook a Thanksgiving dinner. A double Suite, remodeled and redecorated last year with approximately 2400 Square Feet of living area, romantic in-direct lighting through out the Living Room and Dining Room. This unit is totally finished with marble floors and granite counter tops. The largest unit in the Caribbean Reef Villas complex, big enough for two families. Our vacation home is fully Air-conditioned, ceiling fans, flat screen TV's in all the rooms and Wi-Fi Internet. This Villa is designed with windows front and back for wonderful fresh tropical breezes. There are two large terraces overlooking the Infinity Pool and the beautiful Caribbean Ocean. The terraces are a wonderful place to enjoy your evening TROPICAL TODDY while watching the Cruise Ships cross over the horizon from Cozumel, Playa Del Carmen and Belize.

WELCOME TO OUR CASA, with the most beautiful view on the most beautiful ocean in the world. Your adventure in paradise awaits you at the 'Caribbean Reef Villas' in Puerto Morelos, Mexico, located 15 minutes South of the Cancun Airport along the Rivera Maya coast line.

Ask about last minute and seasonal discounts.

CANCUN'S RIVERA MAYA, has many hidden secrets, here lies a sleepy little fishing Village called Puerto Morelos. The 'Caribbean Reef Villas' are located 1/2 mile South of the Town Square. The peace and tranquility of the small complex is overwhelming, only 21 units nestled around a beautiful private swimming pool.

PUERTO MORELOS, is a quaint and simple little piece of local culture. A wonderful place to take a stroll through the Town Square and just sit for a while to watch the birds and people. Have a snack in one of the open air Restaurants around the Square or test the culinary treats in one of the full line Restaurants. Perhaps some shopping in one of the special little shops is what you may enjoy. Around 2 PM - 3 PM, watch the fishing boats come in, walk out on the pier to see the catch of the day. Sometimes you can even buy the fresh catch of the day for your evening meal. Now, how much fresher could it be than right off the boat onto your plate? After it is cooked of course.

RIVERA MAYA, is the hot spot of the Cancun/Yucatan area. This is where everyone wants to be today. The quaint little out-of-the-way settings are now the most happening spots in the Yucatan.


XCARET, PLAYA DEL CARMEN Village, COZUMEL diving, CHITCHEN ITZA, TULUMN, XPLOR AND XEL-HA just to name a few. The list of adventurous outings is endless. Most tourist attractions are located South along the Rivera Maya. The highway to some of the most natural wonders of the world.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The villa worked great for my family. We were 2 college aged adults, 2 adults and 2 seniors. We are used to more modest accomodation but greatly enjoyed the luxury. Everything was as advertised - great views, nice pool, great kitchen, very clean and plenty of room for us all. Do take Betty's advice and load the phone - it would've been so much easier to contact the staff when we needed things. We had a car which made it very easy to get around but I'm sure taxis would be easy as well. You can walk to town partly by the beach but there's a port in between that is fenced off so you have to make your way around it. Betty was wonderful - I was a little concerned the stairs would be too much for my folks but there was a sturdy railing and it was no problem. My only complaint would be the inflatable beds were not very comfortable and were a bit noisy. Waking up to the sunrise in paradise every morning and having my coffee overlooking the ocean made up for it though. Thanks Betty!

Awesome Christmas Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 4 children (ages 5-13) and I stayed at the villa for 2 weeks over Christmas and New Years. We loved how spacious it was, and the house is very well-maintained and had everything we needed. The pool was huge and my kids pretty much lived in it. We loved that the complex was smaller than the huge hotels/resorts, and we met so many nice residents (either owners or renters), and their kids played with our kids all day in the pool and on the beach. We arranged for a cook for our evening meals and house cleaning, which was very nice. The only minor concern we had was that the hot tub in the pool is not a hot water hot tub, but has cool water from the pool. I don't mind since the weather is so warm I woudn't want to sit in a hot tub anyway, but my husband would have liked a hot tub. We didn't rent a car and found it very easy to just take taxis or walk into town. The grounds staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Overall we had a fantastic, relaxing vacation and would definitely recommend this place to others.

Owner's Response: Hello, and thank you for your review and especially for taking the time to share your experience with our fellow travelers. I am pleased that you had such a great time and found everything to be what you expected it to be and hopefully more.. The Jacuzzi in the swimming pool Is not a hot water Jacuzzi because of the way it is built. We feel fortunate to be able to offer the Jacuzzi in the Master Bedroom that does have hot water. The home owners are in the process of trying to decide what changes we might make to the Jacuzzi to make it better in the future. Once again, thank you and we hope to see you again in the future.

Let me start by saying that my husband and I normally stay in upscale inclusive resorts. We used to stay at Excellence which is up the beach from Puerto Morelos. Excellence used to offer complimentary shuttles to the Pomo town square. After our first trip to Pomo we fell in love with this place. Normally I start my research for travel destinations in the fall so last year I thought why not Puerto Morelos. Needless to say after looking at dozens and dozens of properties I saw this condo and made up my mind instantly. After speaking with the owner (Betty) I was instantly at ease and had a high level of confidence. Remember I am used to an AI. From the second we arrived at this property my husband and I were in awe of the beauty. We were greeted by Arlene and Emilio. They helped us with our luggage up to the condo. When we entered we just looked at each other and said the same thing. WOW!!! The décor is exquisite. There is alot space which can accommodate up to 6+ people easily. What is not mentioned is that there is a kitchenette between the guest bedrooms which is a major convenience for additional guests. The showers are large and are walk in. When you enter the condo the living room is massive with very comfortable couches. The master bedroom is unbelievable. The king size bed is wonderful. It has its own balcony where we sat for hours each day just watching the horizon and doing nothing!! We loved that. There is also a 2nd balcony off one of the guest rooms which is just as nice. The kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances, dishware, and a full size fridge. Very easy to cook gourmet meals in. The dining room table is one of a kind. There is a picture window with a view of the jungle. Actually, there are windows throughout the condo so the views are everywhere! With the number of properties that I looked at before I saw this one I have to say that none of them had a pool as big or, as nice as this one. Very quiet, very relaxing and with the beach right there you just go from the pool to the beach. I absolutely cannot find the words to say how much we enjoyed ourselves on this vacation. In fact the day after we came home I reserved this condo for the same time next year. I have never done this before. The other thing that I have to say is that the people that make this property and, your stay here really go above and beyond to please you. Emilio, Arlene, Fernando, and Leo you are just wonderful. See you next year.

Owner's Response: Hello Simone, Now I am in awe after reading your review. This is the greatest review we have ever had. Obviously your vacation was filled with many great and wonderful memories.

You never know what you will actually get when you rent someone else's property. We were very pleasantly surprised to find that this property was more than what was advertised. This is a gem of a place, secluded, private, no hustle and bustle like Cancun. The views are spectacular, especially from the outside terraces. The very large and spacious unit was superbly decorated on the inside. Marble floors throughout the property, large master suite with an incredible bathroom, large windows overlooking the ocean and condo property, really large private pool and jacuzzi with this beach front condo. All the amenities were available inside, we had everything we needed. Town was close enough to walk to, the people very welcoming and attentive to your needs. Wonderful beach front restaurants and great pricing for a family to vacation in a place that makes you feel like home. Can't say enough about this property - I would recommend this to young and old alike, with or without kids.

Beautiful Place but had some problems

  • 3 of 5

Our family with 2 sons aged 16 and 21 spent 9 days at this Villa through New Years 2014. The place is very spacious and has a wonderful view of the ocean. It's decorated very nicely and kept clean. Ocean and pool were awesome but the early birds got their towels on the lounge chairs at daybreak, so many times there were none available when we wanted one.

Definitely get the condo cell phone to make local calls. If you love massages, highly recommend the Jungle Spa in Puerto Morelos. Absolutely amazing. Boys went scuba diving with Brett at Dive in Puerto Morelos and loved it.

For this unit, the negatives I wish I had known before booking. The beds are average (two twins are actually air beds which lost air). The air conditioning in the main master bedroom is extremely loud (sounded like an airplane taking off) and a gust of air blew directly onto the bed which kept waking us up all night. My son slept in the other king bed and his air conditioning was fine. If you turn the air off and open the doors, the room feels very damp.

There were bad rain storms before we arrived and the last two days which caused excessive flooding on the roadway leading into the unit which is swampy. Because of the condition of the roadway, several times we had a hard time getting cabs to pick us up.

We were led to believe it was a 10 minute walk to town, well because of the heavy rain, everything was flooded and the only way to walk to town was by road which was about a 45 minute walk. Rather scary hearing there were crocodiles seen in the waters nearby. Never once were we able to walk the so called 10 minute route.

There are no laundry facilities available - you have to go to town and use the public ones. This ticked me off as there are facilities with 2 washers/dryers but are only available to "The Owners" not renters. The unit washer/dryer is locked up inside a closet We had wet towels and clothes from the rainstorm and wanted to dry everything before we left.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately your frustrations with the storms & flooding have clouded your judgement on your reservation. The Villa speaks for itself, you received everything promised. I feel very sad that your group was caught up in the three months of storms that caused devastation to the whole area. Regarding the Air Beds, they are electric Air Beds, ordered from the States to give the utmost comfort possible. Mexican mattresses are very firm. The Air Beds will inflate in less than 30 seconds. There are 3 Managers on duty so there is always someone to help, you chose not to let anyone know you were unhappy with the Air Beds. It would have been an easy fix in less than a minute. The AC noise problem is one that we have never had before, most people don't sleep with the Air-conditioning on. Opening the bathroom window & terrace doors create a tropical breeze thru the suite plus the large fan over the bed. I agree the AC is a LITTLE noisy. We are having the whole closet insulated. The Lounge Chairs can not be pre-reserved, this is a rule & management will take care of that problem. The storms destroyed most of the umbrellas & a lot of the chairs. Once the bad weather stopped all the outdoor furniture was replaced. The laundry facilities complaint would have been handled, if I had known. Even though you waited until the last day I would have had your laundry taken into town and returned to you in time for your departure. FYI, because there are Lagoons all around Puerto Morelos there are Crocodiles, you will see warning signs about the Crocodiles. I am compassionate to your situation & all the horrible weather. It is very uncomfortable to have an unhappy client no matter the reason. I will work with you to make up for your unfortunate circumstances by giving you a discount on a future booking. I am confident you found the Villa to be a high end luxury unit as promised & would have a great vacation without the bad weather. Betty

Fullfillment of a dream

  • 5 of 5

Our group included four generations and this location was a great pleasure for each individual. This very beautiful place allowed us to feel a part of another world. We toured ruins. We visited Cancun, Playa Del Carmen and Cozumel. Each was wonderful for it's own. Our quiet time was truly that as the unit provided private space for each of us. We watched the cruise ships, fishing boats, the surf and beach from the deck. We walked the beach, daily. The pool was always clean and the deck accommodations were plentiful and comfortable.

The pictures of this unit don't lie, just add your own warmth! The unit was spotless and everything in good repair. The owners have provided all new appliances and kitchen utensils enough for even a Thanksgiving Dinner, which we did. Fresh fish, rice & beans!

The staff was always available, as were taxis when needed. Getting around was easy. We loved getting to know Puerto Morales, the people living there and felt a part of the community for 18 days.

This owner is efficient, responsive and full of helpful information. Arrangements were very easy. Go if you can!
