Casa Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 adults and 3 teenage girls were squealing with delight as we wondered every room! Casa Caracol was prettier than the pictures made it look, was the best appointed home we've ever rented with all the cooking items you need, not just 6 forks and knives, all the linens you can use- I think over 20 beach towels that were routinely cleaned, folded and replaced, and places for everyone to sit whether out on the covered patio or at the dining room table. There were beach chairs and umbrellas for the us, chaise lounges for the pool area- just awesome! We've been going to PDC for many years but this was the first time we'd stayed in Playcar, it was close enough to town, yet quiet and the location to the beach was perfect. The beach was often windy so the private backyard with pool was perfect for us to enjoy. You'll get a lot of helpful hints from the owners on eating, etc. They recommended several restaurants we haven't tried and HC mets was the best!

You will walk a lot to the gate- a tip is to get your taxi's outside the gate coming and going to save 100 peso's each time- only about 10 more steps than at the Playcar hotel.

We hope to be back next year- a great time was had by all!!

Beautiful home, great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Caracol in mid-March shortly after the travel warning to this area was issued. Fortunately the neighborhood is gated and patrolled during the day and throughout the night as well. We felt very safe and had no issues in Playacar or Playa del Carmen.

The house is spacious and tastefully decorated. All bedrooms have a private bath, air conditioning, and a tv. The outdoor area has ceiling fans, lounge chairs and a quaint little pool. The beach is a very short walk, and we enjoyed the (new) comfortable beach chairs, umbrellas, and large towels.

An extra bonus was having Veronica purchase groceries prior to our arrival and Constantina cooking dinner two nights. As suggested we coordinated our airport transportation with Felipe, as well as a day trip to Coba and Tulum. (We had three different drivers but all were timely and very friendly.)

It was a great vacation, and I would definitely recommend this house and area to friends.

Perfection for families

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 rd year in Playa with our family of 9 and it couldn’t have been better. The staff here is wonderful and the owners are concerned and caring. The Casa is perfect, beach is beautiful, shopping fun, people are friendly and great restaurants. Can’t wait to come back!

Wonderful accommodation & perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property! The house is well outfitted & the privacy of the pool is an added bonus. We liked being so close to the beach yet away from the crowds. And it was a short walk to 'town' where the shopping was something everyone participated in.

We had Constantina (chef for hire) cook all of our dinners while we were there & she provided us with some delicious authentic Mexican cuisine (and there was always lots of left overs for lunch the next day!). It was decided by all that she made the best guacamole in the world.

Adriana was our housekeeper & we certainly appreciated her keeping the house in tip top shape. She provided us with excellent service.

We would definitely return to Casa Caracol & certainly recommend it.

Perfect Place for Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house! It was perfect for our family gathering and the staff you have are wonderful.

The place was artistic and elegant but also easy care and comfortable for all 10 of us to be together: 2 Grandparents, 4 parents and 4 children. Everything was set up so well and generously appointed with all we needed including bedrooms and bathrooms for all, fresh clean water to drink and all children’s needs from crib, highchair, and even baby spoons to swimming pool with swim noodles, as well as plenty of thick 'gi'normous towels. Beach was close and so much fun with water deliciously warm enough for all ages to enjoy. And an amazing bonus was being in the midst of ancient Mayan ruins right outside our door to explore.

The owner Nancy was exceedingly helpful and gave us good advice regarding taxis, trips, and multiple tips about the area that made our stay even more enjoyable. Thank you to all who made our stay so special.
