Located along Playa Paraiso between Playa Del Carmen and Puerto Morelos, Villa Carolina is a masterfully designed luxury retreat in the heart of the Mayan Riviera. Built by renowned local architect Jesus Romero, this bijou villa was first graced by Oscar award winning legend Sir Ben Kingsley and, no doubt, offers some of the best views of the Caribbean. Playa Paraiso is a private, gated community with twenty-four hour security located on one of the best white sand beaches in the world.
The light colored deck and the white sands right against it lend the look of an oasis to the pristine infinity swimming pool that includes a swim-up bar with water stools. Ample sun loungers have been laid onto the deck. The alfresco experience is rounded out with an outdoor shower and a charcoal grill. Indoors, you will find satellite TV, an iPod dock and Bose surround sound. Your reservation includes housekeeping six days a week, a villa manager and Wi-Fi access.
The decorative highlights at Villa Carolina include mahogany doors and cabinetry, granite countertops, ceramic tile throughout and a gourmet chef’s kitchen with high-end appliances. The adjacent formal living area provides a stellar view of the lawn, white sands and turquoise sea. The living room includes comfortable sofas and a direct view to the upper deck.
Five lovely bedrooms accommodate up to ten guests at Villa Carolina. Children are welcome. Three bedrooms feature en-suite bathrooms, and four of the suites provide direct access to the temperate climate just outside.
Villa Carolina is a quick five minute drive to Puerto Morelos and a ten to fifteen minute drive to Playa del Carmen. You will surely enjoy the tranquility and relaxation you’ll experience at Playa Paraiso, but if you’re looking for activities, you will find amazing options for golf, water sports and sight seeing nearby. Playa del Carmen and Cancun also offer many opportunities for dining, shopping and nightlife.

We were a 3 generational party of 10. Some love the beach, some do not so Villa Carolina's location was perfect. It is set right at the edge of the beach with a beautiful pool and pool deck for those who do not like to get sandy. The views from all of the many windows were always changing and spectacular. The Jowind was quite blustery the whole week and kept the bugs away. There was fun boogie-boarding and great walks on the beach, all right there. No driving needed. Golf next door at the Iberostar was easy to schedule and excellent. The kitchen was well equipped and large enough for many cooks. We had several catered dinners by Uno Catering which were excellent and very plentiful. Chef Elisabeth & Fanny were lovely. Jorge, manager, was very friendly, helpful and always an email away. The yoga teacher, Anna, came to practice on the pool deck was wonderful (arranged by our concierge Claudia). All of us had a very relaxing time during our stay.
The staff lead by Jorge and the Chef Services were truly remarkable. Their friendliness, their helpful attitude, anything and everything they did was to make our trip seamless and they were outstanding.
It is actually very hard to describe how stunning the Villa's location's is in words or pictures. You walk out the back door, take 10 steps and you are in the pool. Get out of the pool and take 20 steps and you are in the beautiful waters of the Caribbean. We sat outside every evening for hours while taking dips in the pool and sea.
We picked this house based on the description on the website and prox to beach and were not disappointed!!! It is beautiful and well appointed and big enough for our group of 10 adults & 2 babies. The pluses: rooms are large, plenty of bathrooms, top grade kitchen appliances, decent sized pool and deck. Private beach right outside your door! Outstanding view from 2nd floor bedrooms! Nice decor throughout. Proximity to neighbors was not a problem because there's empty lots on both sides of the house. Housekeeping and pool cleaning services were very good. The not so good: Pantry was not fully stocked as we had requested but this may have been because we kept updating the grocery list and apparently the villa manager didn't get the updated one and there's not a store within walking distance. There's nothing within walking distance so you'll need a car. Dishware and utensils were old and not enough, no hot water, (busted tank) matches needed for stove. Plumbing problems.
What a lovely place. It was perfect for our family, and Jorge and Lucy could not have been more helpful. We were fortunate that the weather was lovely so we could fully enjoy the beach. We would go back again.
