Can't go wrong here - all the 5-star reviews are dead on

  • 5 of 5

Villa Karina was a joy, as was dealing with Dora, as many have said. The rocky beach behind the villa was the only minor issue; but since there is a fabulous stretch of beach near town (walking distance for even the most physically challenged) we will give them a pass on that. We did visit during a time of stormy weather and rain and rough seas, so the situation might be better in other times. The house is GORGEOUS, all the bedrooms are awesome, and with the minor exception of a noisy A/C in the dining room, everything worked great. Something not mentioned are the brick arches located in two locations in the villa, which are architectural novelties which are awesome to see. The rooftop setting, with a table/chairs and pair of lounge chairs is a nice place to sit and hang out also. The location is perfect - just near town, and close to Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, and not awfully far from Tulum. Everything was SO affordable there - we all took too much money for the costs we incurred. Gardening, pool services, and maid service were all top notch. One of the highlights of the trip is the covered cabana (or whatever they call it) between the pool and the ocean in the back - so comfortable and inviting. We spent a lot of time out there, and so should you - ocean breezes and the sounds of the sea, comfortable seating, and an artistic presentation all around. So nice! A super top-notch villa for the price. You will not regret choosing this home !!!

The property is just as pictured, beautiful and we'll mantained. Don't hesitate and book.

  • 5 of 5

Only a few minutes walk or bike to town. Taxi is only 50pesos. Pool, home and view are spectacular. While the beach right out front has much seagrass, it is swimable and there are very nice beaches just a bit

down with chairs and palalas and bars. Dora and the team are beyond knowlegable about the area and very helpful. Pablo the chef was amazing and affordable. Iwill be back as soon as I can!

One of the best vacations we have ever had!!

  • 5 of 5

From the booking of the Villa, to our day of departure, it was nothing less then pleasurable! I cannot recommend Villa Karina enough! Not one person in our party (eight adults) had any complaints. The house was beyond beautiful, with everything anyone would need, the pool was the perfect size for all of us and the walk to town was just the right distance. The entire staff was friendly and very understanding of our lack of Spanish (lol). Speaking of staff, I can not review this property without mentioning two people... Our private chef, Pablo, was beyond amazing with his culinary skills. Every meal (six nights) was different and delicious! The property manager, Dora, was extraordinary! There was nothing she couldn't/wouldn't do to make sure our stay was perfect! Her restaurant in town, John Gray's, was fabulous too!! To sum it up, we loved everything about our stay, and will definitely be returning!! Thank you Dora!!!

If, you are looking for an uncomercialized, relaxing and laid back experience in Mexico, this is it!

  • 5 of 5

First off, I want to praise Dora and staff for a wonderful, pampered stay. We were attended to as much or as little as we wanted. Dora has her phone with her 24 hours per day and is at your beck and call for all your needs. From arranging tours, dinner reservations to medical care advise.

We were a family of eight traveling together on 2-24-2018. Our pick up from Cancun airport and back was arranged through Dora and was flawless. We were transported to the beautiful property Villa Karina. This property left nothing to be desired. Five bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom on-suite. Start your day early in the morning by the pool or on the beach with coffee or a cocktail or enjoy the tranquillity by catching up on your rest. The pictures of the property on VROB are as you see...a newer and well maintained property. We had many tourist walking the beach that stopped to admire this property.

Pueblo, is a chef you can arrange through Dora, to come in and prepare meals for you at Villa Karina. Do take advantage of this opportunity, very reasonably priced, $50 US plus cost of groceries. Ask Dora for her Margarita mix that she will make and bring to you from John Gray's restaurant...also a great place to visit for food and drinks. Fabulous Margaritas with or without Pueblo's meals.

Puerto Morelos is an unspoiled Mexican village with wonderful places to dine and enjoy activities during the day and evenings.

You are only a short, inexpensive taxi ride to Cancun and Playa del Carmen.

Last but, certainly not least, we at no time felt threatened or unsecure at the property first and foremost on our day or evening outings.

Seize this wonderful opportunity, you will not be disappointed!!

Kindest Regards,

Jill from Minnesota, USA

Villa Karina is a beautiful property, thoughtfully laid out and beautifully done.

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 adults and 2 children and it was a good fit for us. Dora is an elegant woman, who runs the wonderful John Gray’s kitchen in town, is smart , responsive and efficient, and couldn’t have been more helpful. Her suggestion to let her do shopping for us so that there was food and drinks for us as we all trickled in at different times was the perfect beginning to an almost perfect week. Since she knows her shopping and local sources, she was able to get us organic milk and eggs and gluten free flour for our picky household. Her further suggestion to have Pablo come in and cook for us, especially that first night and

then for a family birthday party was fun and delicious, with great left overs. The cleaning staff was excellent, the pool and beach beautiful, the upstairs deck a fabulous view and get away place— everything really that you could dream of for a vacation. The 25 min walk into town was fun, easy and fascinating and Puerto Morelos itself Fun and real— nothing like the made up metropolises elsewhere on the Coast. The occasional nudist next door and their breakwater jutting out into the sea just added to our experience of a laid back, relaxing time. The pool and beach is wonderful, though the ocean floor there is rocky and we did our ocean swimming both up and down the beach at different places— which was fine. We plan on returning and would not hesitate to recommend this to good friends. Just don’t book it when we want to be there, please!

Our little Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is very special. Great location, on the beach, pool and spacious everything. The staff is wonderful and Dora takes of all your pre and visit needs. Puerto Moralos is a safe and friendly town with wonderful restaurants. Not too crazy but a lot of fun. My wife and I, with friends have stayed there twice in less than 6 months and getting ready to book again. Do I really need to say more? Perfect no...but close enough to perfect for us.
