A visitor to Casa Marcella said... 'It's the beautiful place I like to go in my mind on those nights that I just can't sleep!'

Come and fall asleep at Casa Marcella in Puerto Morelos listening to our music of the night... The sounds of the Caribbean Sea breaking on the beach.

Casa Marcella... Where you can go for an early morning sunrise swim from our soft, white sand beach... Or for that matter... How about a moonlight swim? After all, it's just a few sandy steps away!

Casa Marcella is located in Puerto Morelos. Only a short twenty minute drive south of Cancun. So close to absolutely everything. But it has a way of feeling like you're a million miles away from everywhere!

The Villa at Casa Marcella is a tastefully decorated, beautiful two story home. The first floor has an elegant entry, with a guest bath, a fully equipped kitchen with bar.

Wonderful Experience at Casa Marcella

  • 5 of 5

It was not easy to leave the beautiful Casa Marcella this morning! So interesting to be adjacent to the H10 all inclusive for the week, reinforcing why a stay at Casa Marcella provides a truly authentic experience. Bruno could not have been more accommodating to our group of 12, he and his staff were polite and considerate. Bruno arranged for a masseuse to arrive most late afternoons (on the rooftop), and coordinated a great zip-lining trip. We elected to use Bruno's chef, and each meal was better than the next. (They even waited at the fishing pier for 2 hours one afternoon for first pick of fresh lobsters from the incoming boats). The pool and grounds were very well maintained, and the fresh ocean breezes passed through the house from start to finish. I do recommend a car, it is very easy to get around as everything is up and down A307, and the charming town of Puerto Morales is about 10-15 min away. We would highly recommend a stay at Casa Marcella, and hope to return in the future.

Paradise...Casa Marcella

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to get-a-way for a quiet, private, and relaxing vacation. The property is about 15 minutes from town, but a taxi stand is phone call away and are at the home in less than 15 minutes. So you are not so isolated that you can't get to town easily. My wife and I went with another couple and stayed for a week and it was fantastic. The views in the morning and the evening are awesome and the home is wonderful. Communication between the owner as well as manager (Brian and Bruno respectively) was easy and response times were always timely. We engaged in a professional chef that Bruno recommended to prepare our meals and I can't say enough good things about him. We all miss Casa Marcella already.The pool was great, but the patio and balcony facing the ocean gave you a nice breeze and awesome views. The sunsets and sunrises were beautiful. The property was clean and landscaped nicely and you didn't know you had neighbors. There is WiFi, so you could stay connected, but why would you in Paradise! No one left disappointed at all! We will be back for sure and plan on taking our family on the next trip!! See you soon!

House was big and that's where the good ends. Pool was dirty, beds were hard and dirty, green space was unkept, water ran out more than once, pumps were worn out, power got shut off more than once, propane ran out twice, roads were horrible leading to Villa. A car is a must. It's far from town at least 4 miles once way. But a vehicle to rent for 10 people was $2,500 American dollars for 25 days. Appliances were old and worn out. One fridge wouldn't stay cold. Kitchen necessities were nonexistant dull knives, no large bowls. House manager was sparse at best. He was good when he was there but there is a lot of things to fix and do and he was gone all the time after week one. Pool deck was dirty, trees were overgrown and shaded the pool, which was cold. Pool chairs were broken. Large holes next to main house patio caused a hazard and attracted large Iguana's. No screen on large patio sliding glass doors even though they were leaning out in the garage. Beach was dirty.

Overall for the price, not a good deal. House was tired and it was clear that the owner was absent!

Keep looking for your beach getaway!

Owner's Response: I am very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. I wish you had let me know during your stay that you had these issues. I did hear of the mix up with the power the one time and it was my understanding that we fixed it that day. I only heard from you once during your stay that was a message about the power. You also had a concierge through the rental company you used to book the property that would have helped us address any concerns. Most of the things you mentioned in your review are quick fixes that we could have addressed the first day or two that you were there. It is hard not to be there all the time. If I had known that the items were missing, I would have had staff purchase them right away. I will have them look into these issues right away and I will be traveling to the house in the next 3 weeks to ensure that these issues have been addressed. I will also look into why the staff did not ensure that things were how they needed to be. I had 2 different sets of guests that had stayed there just prior to your arrival, this is the first that I have heard of these problems. You definitely need to rent a car for this house if you want to get around freely. There are taxi's and shuttle services that you can hire. The iguana is definitely a resident of the property. 98% of our guests have loved him sunning himself on the back wall. The hole was made by him. Many of the guests have named him as a fond memory from their trip. I too was surprised that the water and propane was used so quickly. We are on an enclosed system. I am not sure why that happened. There are some things that are beyond our control if a toilet flapper gets stuck or a bbq burner gets left on a little. All we can do is refill the tanks. It has not been an issue. Again, I am sorry that you had these issues. I only wish that you had let me know when you arrived so that I could have fixed them for you. I will ensure that all of your feedback is used to ensure that future guests will not have this experience.

We enjoyed an excellent family vacation at Casa Marcella and loved Puerto Morelos. We had different family members come and go throughout our vacation and it was a perfect place for this type of vacation. I would highly recommend it for large families and groups of 8 or more as there is something for everybody. You definitely need a car, and there were a few minor issues, but Bruno (the caretaker) and Celia (the cleaner) were great in addressing our needs. All around great vacation and will stay again when we go back to Puerto Morelos!

Great place to relax and get to know Mexico

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Casa Marcella. It was a wonderful visit and the staff is wonderful. There is plenty of room for everyone without feeling crowded. The kitchen is well equipped and the property is well maintained. We enjoy the pool and the courtyard, but I think most of our time is spent on the back patio over-looking the beach and the sea.

Obviously, when you are living on the town, you do not have all of the amenities of staying at one of the full service resorts. If that is what you are looking for, then this is not the place for you. On the other hand, if you want to really experience Mexico, and to enjoy the people, I cannot recommend a better way to enjoy it. We get to talk with the staff and shopping out in town becomes an entirely different experience. While the property is beyond an easy walk to town, it is easy to get a taxi or to drive the distance if you need to get there. I do recommend a car for your visit because that way it is easy to visit all of the attractions in the area, including Tulum, Playa del Carmen and Cancun.

This place has become a favorite of mine and I strongly recommend you visit it.
