Enjoy your morning coffee as you watch the sun rise over the Caribbean Sea. The second largest barrier reef in the world is right off our patio. Our completely remodeled villa has a large master bedroom suite with its own separate bathroom and patio/porch. The living area has a double size Murphy bed, large couch, dining table, full kitchen, full bathroom and patio/porch. These two areas are separated by a lockable door for privacy, making the space ideal for two couples or a couple with children.

Caribbean Reef Villas is remotely located giving you a quiet and peaceful sanctuary in this Mexican paradise. The quaint fishing village of Puerto Morelos is only one mile to the north and the El Cid Resort and Marina is only one mile to the south. All within walking distance to restaurants and activities.

The restaurants in Puerto Morelos offer excellent choices of cuisines from around the world with that authentic Mexican touch. A small grocery store and fresh seafood market is also available. You will find local dive shops, fishing tours, and snorkeling tours in town also. And of course, shopping at the local artisan shops. The town square is always bustling with activity. At the cab shack you can find a ride to anywhere.

Snorkeling & Scuba Diving - The Great Mayan Barrier Reef located directly in front of the complex is the second largest reef in the world. The reef is home to lobsters, turtles, groupers, barracuda, dolphin, sting rays and a host of other colorful Caribbean fish. Cenote cavern diving in crystalline fresh water is just a short drive away. All the local dive shops offer scuba diving and snorkeling packages.

Fishing - Charters can be caught at the world class El Cid Marina just down the beach or you can go into town and book a trip with the locals and enjoy Billfishing and light tackle fishing.

About Jeff

Enjoying Puerto Morelos, MX with our family over Christmas & New Years.

Jeff purchased this villa in 2006

Why Jeff chose Puerto Morelos

Scuba divers paradise - Beginner to Expert.

Some of the best recreational scuba diving around. Many dive profiles to choose from such as shallow reef, deep water, drift, night, and cavern & cave diving in nearby cenotes. Cozemel wall diving is close by.

What makes this villa unique

Small 21 unit complex isolated south of town with a very quite beach. Very relaxing in the morning and evening drinking my coffee or cocktail by the pool.

Very pleasant stay in Puerto Morales

  • 4 of 5

The condo is on the first floor which permitted us to simply walk out the back door, across a small lawn, to the pool deck. The complex is an easy walk to the small Mexican village of Puerto Morales - lovely. The condo itself has all the need amenities for a comfortable stay. It did not have things like sugar, salt, pepper, etc. So, if you're going to be cooking, which we did, be sure to bring spices with you. The condo is air conditioned but we didn't use it. with the sliding doors open and the ceiling fans, we kept cool. I found the bed in the maser bedroom to be a little hard for my liking. I know others prefer this kind of bed. The complex is well kept and very pretty. It's away from things, so we always felt safe. It was really a great place to be close to town and not in a wall fortress like so many other resorts.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and comments regarding salt, pepper and spices. Yes bring your own spices if you plan to cook. The moist ocean air makes everything cake up and after a while renders it useless. Even as owners we bring our own dry spices or purchase when we visit. Great comment.

Unbelievable Views!

  • 5 of 5

We could not believe the amazing view we had right from our villa. It looked like something you would see on a post card. Location was private and secure, right on the beach. The villa itself was beautiful and had everything we needed. Great staff on location. Very close to Puerto Morelos.

Great property on the quiet side of Puerto Morelos

  • 4 of 5

This was our fourth year at this property, and we are planning a return next year. We love the quietness of the location, being right on the beach and having one of the best pools in town.

Absolutely amazing get away!

  • 5 of 5

The place was beautiful and well kept. The staff was incredible and helped us with all our needs! Nothing better than to walk outside your patio only to find a massive pool with a private beach for relaxation! If you crave nightlife Playa Del Carmen is only 30 mins away! We can't wait to book again. Thank you so much for making our stay friendly and welcomed!

Walk out to the infinity edge pool overlooking the ocean

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at Caribbean Reef Villas. My friend and I particularly like this unit because it is on the ground level so we could easily access the outdoors, pool and ocean. We like it here because it's quiet enough to hear the birds sing and ocean waves, but only about a mile from town which we easily accessed twice a day on the bicycles we rented for the week we were there. The onsite manager Arlene, responds quickly to any needs or concerns like needing more purified water.

Great for families

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at CRV!

The property is quiet and beautiful, with enough to keep our 3 kids occupied. Puerto Morelos was perfect for our family as well-- easy to negotiate with three young kids in tow, but still feels like you're actually in Mexico. Close to many, many wonderful activities, from the reef to caves to cenotes. Thanks, in particular to the wonderful Arlene for welcoming us and answering all of our questions.
