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 chefs 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 youll experience at Playa Paraiso, but if youre 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.

Our family of 6 greatly enjoyed our stay at Villa Carolina! The home had everything we needed. It was clean, spacious and comfortable for all. We loved the convenience of the pool and ocean just a few steps from the door. The beds were comfortable and we enjoyed watching the sunrise daily. The home has beautiful accessories and is decorated nicely. Lucy the housekeeper was very kind and took care of the house many times during the week. The area the home is located in is completely safe and we enjoyed the privacy. We always saw a guard at the entrance 24/7.
Property manager Jorge was very helpful. Purchased provisions for us on a regular basis. House cleaner wiped surfaces, but failed to actually "clean" anything, also did not speak English. The home is showing signs of age with varying states of disrepair. Several child safety issues (eroded soil at beach side patio, exposed outlets, etc.). The beach was covered in seaweed and raked once by the property manager. Adjacent properties were consistently cleaned of the seaweed.
House needs better written instructions for everyday elements (e.g. TV, A/C, kitchen...). Gas stove broke day one and was only able to be used with hand held lighter. Griddle center never worked again.
My family and I are very tolerant, and we had a great time together, however the home didn't live up to the 5 star expectations. As a former investment property owner, I get how hard it is to maintain a shore front property, but the fact is...it's worth the effort when managed in deep detail.
We only really have one complaint and that is the WiFi, It was out more often than it was working. We did not have a cell phone that worked there so our only way to contact the manager would be via e-mail using the WiFi, which was mostly not available. That aside, the villa was great...the pool, the beach, the gulf... all better than advertised. The Chef service that our concierge retained was also perfect for us.
Villa Carolina was a perfect house for our "girls trip". It is conveniently located between Cancun and Playa del Carmen. Sitting in the pool while watching the waves crash on the beach is amazing. Lucy the housekeeper was pleasant and made staying in a villa relaxing because she cleaned up after us, just like we were at a hotel. The house is stocked with a ton of movies for evening entertainment. The private villa massages were excellent. We hired chefs to cook us dinner two nights (Ely and Fanny). The food was amazing, but the service was better. They cooked, served us dinner and cleaned up after. The best feature of Villa Carolina is the house manager Jorge. The owners are so lucky to have such an amazing employee. If we needed anything....Jorge presented it within minutes. Unfortunately, during dinner in Playa del Carmen one night our rental car was towed and impounded. If it wasn't for Jorge,I would still be in Mexico trying to get the car back. He is PRICELESS!!
