Puerto Morelos Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 2 Bathrooms, 4 Sleeps

Please come and experience our picturesque shangri-la at Caribbean Reef Villas. The infinity pool, white sand beach and tranquil waters of the Caribbean are right outside our ground floor villa.

The villa is tastefully decorated with soft earth tones and accented with authentic Mexican accessories and the owners hand painted artwork. The divided floor plan will accommodate 2 couples. The master bedroom has a king size bed with a small sitting area. The studio has a fully equipped kitchen with granite counter tops, a combination dining and sitting area with twin Murphy beds. Each room has a full bathroom with marble showers and granite counter tops. Whether in the bedroom or living area, you will savor the breathtaking view. If you want privacy from the pool or beach, you can retreat to our private patio and enjoy the cool shade.

Work on your tan by the beautiful infinity pool which features a whirlpool and sun bathing ledge. If the pool is not your scene, the beach is just steps away. Relax under the palapas with a good book, stroll down the beach looking for seashells, or take a refreshing swim while snorkeling in the clear waters of the Caribbean.

It's only a short walk or bike ride into the quaint fishing village of Puerto Morelos. Once in town, tour the square where you can shop at boutiques, souvenir shops or the ice cream and grocery store. Buy fresh fruits and vegetables at the farmers market or stroll down to the pier to buy the fresh catch of the day. There are plenty of choice restaurants that offer diverse cuisine of Argentinean, Italian, French, Mediterranean and authentic Mexican dishes. The scuba diving is world class and the nearby jungle offers adventures including zip lining, horseback riding, cenote swimming and exploration of Mayan ruins.

Feel safe and secure at Caribbean Reef Villas. We have night security, a gated entrance and secure parking. Our onsite staff and concierge are always available to help serve you.

The invitation is yours. Come and refresh yourself and enjoy our paradise in the Caribbean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful, relaxing visit...just what we needed before embarking on our trip to Merida. The views from the bedroom and living area were beautiful, and we enjoyed the privacy of the Villas and the peace and quiet the location afforded. We do not travel to other countries to stay in crowded resorts with hundreds of other North Americans, we travel to experience local culture as much as possible. That said, we were extremely grateful that the villa had air-conditioning! Coming from a cool spring in West Michigan to 95 degree temperatures and high humidity was a bit of a shock to our systems! The hottest hours of the day, from 1-4pm, were typically spent napping or reading inside the villa.

Thanks for letting us enjoy some much-needed relaxation in such a lovely location. Oh, I have to mention the fantastic Eggs Benedict I had at a small restaurant on the square in Puerto Morelos. Yum!

Perfect place for a quiet vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our third trip to Puerto Morelos, and our second to Caribbean Reef Villas, so we obviously love the area, and especially this location. This particular condo was especially ideal for us. It's situated on the ground floor, so we could walk out to the pool easily, but it's not directly overlooking the pool, so we had some degree of privacy as we sat on the patio.

The condo is exceptionally comfortable. It is not set up as a rental unit, but as a lovingly cared-for home. We love to cook, and the kitchen was remarkably well-equipped for a vacation home. The ceiling fans in bedroom and living room were all we needed to keep us cool; we never needed air conditioning. The patio furniture is comfortable and we spent most of our time outdoors, there or at the pool. We lacked for nothing.

Caribbean Reef Villas seems to attract an amiable group of owners and renters. Because there are only 19 units, it is possible to get to know the others in the complex pretty well, and impromptu social gatherings happen. The people who like this place tend to be more mature people who prefer its quiet location away from the town and from nearby all-inclusives.

It is impossible to say enough about the wonderful staff at Caribbean Reef Villas. They are always busy tending the property, and their care shows. They are around all day, every day except Sunday, so always available whenever there is an issue or a question.

The only drawback we can identify is that the internet service is not stable in the complex. There were frequent outages, some short, some for much of a day. The wifi signal seems to be strong, but it is impossible to connect to the internet. The staff helped one day by contacting the internet provider, but on subsequent days the problem continued to recur. But hey - we were on vacation!

All in all, this is one of the nicest vacation rentals we've ever had, and our only hesitation in recommending it is that it might make it unavailable for us!

Relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

When we landed at Cancun we had pre-booked our transportation with USA Transfers round trip from the airport to the Caribbean Reef Villas, excellent service would definitely use again. We were greeted by a smiling Arlene the property manager who escorted us to the condo which was clean, airy, bright and well stocked it has a beautiful infinity pool and beachfront view. (Ocean swimming not ideal), white sand beach is beautiful and secluded. The owners are very cognizant of their renters from the moment we booked to when we left, supplying a good binder filled with many helpful tips for our stay. For my husband and I an ideal spot for really relaxing, reading, swimming, cooking in or going out, nice to have that option. Town is within walking distance, the evenings we did walk in we would always take a cab back to the villa as it was usually dark by that time. There are a great variety of restaurants, our favourites Los Gauchos, empanadas delicious and Al Chimichurri steak great. There is a mini supermarket Casa Martin which sells most essentials. As we were staying a month we ended up a couple of times taking the collectivo public buses from Puerto Morales town square 5 pesos one way up to Colonia where there is a huge supermarket with everything you could want. We did take a wonderful day tour with Ecab Explorer Tours (thoroughly recommend) owner Eric, we visited Tulum land tour then a boat trip to see Tulum from the sea, swam with the turtles at Akumal Beach and then a refreshing swim at a cenote, a wonderful day! We would definitely recommend this property for other couples who want total relaxation and quiet. For people who perhaps would find the walk to and from town inconvenient there is always the option of renting bicycles or a car in town. Recommendation pack light we didn't wear half the things we bought, very casual no need for dress up clothes. Thanks to the owners for sharing their beautiful vacation home and making sure we were so comfortable. A big thanks also to all the helpful, friendly smiling property staff who made us feel safe and secure during our stay. We'll be back!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for that wonderful review. I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation. Caribbean Reef Villas and the town of Puerto Morelos is a hidden jewel on the Mayan Riviera!

Peaceful oasis!

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from a quick but lovely long weekend in Mexico and the Carribean Reef Villas were amazing! Peaceful with beautiful views of ocean. Condo equipped with all the ameneties. Relaxing to hear gentle waves at night. Not as easy to get to town without a car or taxi at this location & unable to walk beach all the way to town, but quiet relaxing property in Riviera Maya!

My husband and I just wanted a place to relax and enjoy the Mexican beauty. This is exactly what we needed. The place was clean and everything was as described. Everything that we needed was provided for us. The views of the ocean were beautiful. Safety was top notch and even when we were sitting on the beach at night we saw security walking around. We ate out on the patio everyday for breakfast..we bought groceries at the local grocery store in Puerto Morelos. Just make sure you put your food up as there are lots of ants..but we were aware and it didn't make the stay great. You have to go for a swim at night and look at the stars..simply amazing!! Jane even emailed us to check and make sure we were ok..if you want quiet and relaxing this is the place for you. We enjoyed every minute of it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review. You enjoyed every aspect of Caribbean Reef Villas and the town of Puerto Morelos. I'm so sorry about the ant situation. Being on the ground floor, at certain times of the year, it's very difficult to keep these little pests from invading our home. I have brought this situation to the attention of housekeeping so that it will be taken care of for our future guests.

very good

  • 5 of 5

Very good. owner had an excellent handout of what to do there. they emailed/texted us multiple times too make sure we were happy, answered questions etc.... spacious place right on the beach. Adult condo. No kids while we were there. If you are looking for clubbing not the place for you. If you are looking for a laid back place on the beach with very nice staff it is excellent.

Wonderful, carefree vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a wonderful vacation spot. The condo feels like a home, not a hotel room. The owners chose a very nice décor, similar to what you'd find in any home, and it's very clean and well maintained. The owners answer e-mail and text messages very promptly in the event that there are any questions. The villa is situated just a short 15 minute walk from the town of Puerto Morelos. The kitchen is well equipped to prepare meals if you wish (which we did), including a 4 burner stove, generous-sized toaster oven and microwave. We prepared our own breakfasts and lunches and walked to town for dinners. At the recommendation of the owners, we purchased our "hard" liquor at the airport in the duty-free shop, and that was a good call. Arlene, who works at the property, graciously did some grocery shopping for us prior to our arrival, but when we come next time (and there will be a next time), we might ask our transfer service to make a stop at the Superama grocery near the airport. The pool and beach are easily accessible, literally steps from your door. We felt perfectly safe here. There are some great restaurants in PM; our favorite was El Pirates (The Pirate), for some excellent Argentinian beef and for a different take on Americanized tacos. We called Pedro (Arlen's husband who's a taxi driver), when he was available. Often we just walked to town ourselves. Taxi fare to town is 50 pesos plus tip. The currency rate is about 12.25 pesos to the dollar. There's a currency exchange in town, right next to Casa Martin, a little grocer that carries a lot of things...but no "meat" items except for lunch meat. The owners have bug spray available, and at times you really need it, particularly in town. They've provided nearly everything you could need for a wonderful stay, even having some "emergency" supplies for things you might have forgotten to pack. This isn't a villa for party animals. :) There are plenty of places like that closer to town. If you'd like a more subdued, quiet spot to relax on the beach, this is the place. You will not regret it! And by the way...Puerto Morelos is kind of a "come as you are" kind of town. Forget nice clothes. Everyone is shorts, t-shirts and ponytails!
