The end of a wonderful family holiday in such beautiful surroundings. Bruno and Amalia were wonderful hosts, so helpful and pleasant. The Crazy Cannucks !!
I have to thank Brain for taking my booking. Had a great stay and Bruno the caretaker was there just the right amount of time checked in with us but left our group alone other than to take care of any of the things we needed. The day we arrived Bruno was there to meet us at the door and showed us the property. Had us set up with a local cell phone and showed us how evey thing worked. House was great and the pool was the center piece of our time in Puerto Morelos. There was a few days of heavy winds and we were well protected in the pool area allowing us to still enjoy our time on those days. Brain set us up with his friend with a dive shop and they picked us up right on our own beach. It was awsome. The trek into town was a short trip and it was a concern when we rented but in the end being away from the town gave us lots of privacy and beach where we saw almost no people. Great house will definitely rent it again if I ever make it back down that way. Thanks for a great stay.
Stayed at Casa Marcella with a group of 9 (6 adults, 2 teens and one tween). Here are our thoughts:
*Large space - with 3 bedrooms in the house and 2 casitas it was plenty of space for us to spread out. Plus a large balcony, roof top, patio on the front of the home, yard and a large pool area. Lots of area to spread out.
*Private pool is awesome. Was cleaned and swept almost every day we were there. Lots of lounge chairs, tables, etc. Partially shaded. Nice.
*Houseman helpful when there or asked for something. We had several issues and when Jerry was present he was friendly and helpful. Not sure how good his English is because he would always respond with "one moment."
*Beautiful ocean view.
*Unlimited bottled water for drinking and a fairly well stocked kitchen (although don't count on the "staples" being available as the vrbo site says-- buy your own)
*Comfortable a/c in each bedroom as well as 5 1/2 bathrooms.
*No phone. The VRBO sites says there is a phone available to use. It did not work. Thus when we had issues we had no way to get in touch with anyone and house manager was not on site.
*Washer/dryer are not available to renters. They are on site, but renters cannot use it and are directed to some laundry service.
*Inconsistent maid service -- we weren't really expecting maid service and there was some which was nice, I guess. But it was unpredictable. For example, one day we had one new hand towel in the bathroom and the next day one new bath towel. Sometimes the garbage would be emptied and sometimes not. It was weird.
*Variable availability of houseman -- he was not always there and when we had issues (like when water wasn't working in house) we had no one to get in touch with.
*Beach area unusable -- don't know if this was typical but it was VERY windy the week we were at Casa Marcella and there was TONS of prickly seaweed on the beach which was filled with garbage. Even if you braved it and went into ocean the ocean was filled with seaweed. It was so bad we couldnt swim in the ocean at all.
*Plumbing issues with upstairs toilet poor flushing
*There is a small hotel next door to Casa Marcella and the guests were very LOUD. One night up until 3am. Also neighbor on other side has dogs that barked A LOT! Never seemed to be anyone home either. Made for tough sleeping several nights.
*Location is remote. Several of our taxi drivers had trouble locating House. Highly recommend a car.
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.
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!
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!
