About Kent

Our family lives in Minneapolis Minnesota and have traveled to the Cancun and Mayan Riviera area for years.

When we discovered Puerto Morelos and Caribbean Reef it was all we ever looked for in a vacation home.

We have furnished our unit with custom made Mexican furniture and decorations that represent our tastes. We have a full kitchen that allows us to prepare meals and sit on the Balcony and enjoy one of the most beautiful views possible.

Kent purchased this condo in 2007

Why Kent chose Puerto Morelos

Simple, incredible beach front loaction with a pool that is probably unsurpassed for this type of property.

Add a beautiful 3rd floor balcony that you may never leave while there!

What makes this condo unique

Close location to Puerto Morelos for diving, snorkeling and water activities, restaurants and stores for most any thing you would need.

Great condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Caribbean Reef Villas, but our first in this particular condo. The descriptions are all accurate and the unit is as nice (and clean) as the photos in the listing show. The owner is a pleasure to deal with as is the on-site staff. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Caribbean Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Andrea and Dick from Mpls stayed there for 10 glorious days in early February. The weather couldn't have been more perfect and the breeze from the Gulf was lovely! The condo is beautiful, exceptionally clean and comfortable. The pictures are accurate. The staff at the condo are very accommodating and we enjoyed talking to them and practicing Spanish. We were so happy to not rent a car as it's not necessary to go into town - our cab ride was 50 pesos (plus tip) and the taxi drivers were all nice. We ate at 12 or more different restaurants in town and all were delicious! We found a few cafes that we really liked and the coffee was great too! The town square was buzzing with vendors and musicians and break dancers which was all very entertaining. If you like to snorkel, we went through Pelicanos. It was $25 US per person which was cheap. 'Charlie Brown' was our guide, he is very experienced and a funny guy. If you want a laid back vacation without the hustle and bustle of Cancun, this is the place. One other aspect that we really enjoyed was there were plenty of local people and tourists from other parts of Mexico enjoying this sweet town as well. We plan to be back in 2018!!!!

Just returned from our week at the condo and enjoyed our stay very much. The pictures are completely accurate and the condo and grounds are beautiful. The staff were outstanding and very friendly and helpful. We were able to get information regarding activities and anything we needed during our stay. We used the local bus service (collectivo) to visit Mayan ruins and were able to easily walk to town in just 10 minutes. We used a USA transport to get to and from the airport which went without a hitch. No car necessary. We recommend shopping for gifts at the flea market in Puerto Morelos, all the prices are marked and he has a wonderful selection of items for everyone. Everything was perfect for a very fun and relaxing vacation. Thanks to the owners for such a lovely place to stay!

Great location. Beautiful views.

  • 5 of 5

This quiet location, only a very short walk into Puerto Morelos, is perfect if you want a quiet vacation. I woke up for the incredible sunrise every morning and did yoga on the grass beside the pool. You can visit with the other tenants or stay to yourself, whatever you please. The condo is well kept and very comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need including all appliances. The wind cools the condo down and we didn't even have to use the air conditioning even though it was hot outside. A short 10 minute walk takes you into town. You have to go off the beach a bit because the port is between the condo and town but it is easy to find your way. We loved Puerto Morelos because is is small and not large like Cancun or Playa del Carmen. There are many great restaurants if you don't want to cook much and if you do want to cook, groceries and fresh fish are easy to purchase. There is a market one day during the week that sells fruits and vegetables. The location is great whether you have a car or not. If you don't have a car, it is only 20 minutes from the Cancun airport and you can walk or take a taxi to town. If you do have a car, it is easy to see all of the local sites along the Mayan Riviera. We would highly recommend staying at Caribbean Reef and spending time in and around Puerto Morelos.

Lovely condo, gorgeous views, quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a wonderful, relaxing month at this condo recently. The condo was beautifully decorated with a serene beach feel to the decor. It was well equipped and very well maintained, with a thorough cleaning occurring once a week. The staff were friendly and helpful when needed.

We loved spending the early mornings out on the balcony, watching the sun rise over the ocean and the rest of the day lounging out by the fabulous pool or under one of the palapas on the beach. We appreciated the presence of a gas grill on the balcony and spent about half of our evenings "eating in". Other evenings we went in to town and dined at one of the many excellent restaurants there. Although many of the restaurants are small with limited seating, we had some wonderful meals.

The owner provided a wealth of information about the condo and the general area during numerous conversations and emails. We were actually lucky to meet them during part of our stay as they were staying in another condo in the complex. During our chats around the pool or at the beach they regularly confirmed that we were enjoying our stay and had no issues or problems with the condo. Some repair work occurred during our stay, but it was not an issue.

Although we chose to rent a vehicle during our stay, other vacationers staying at this property did not and would walk in to town for groceries or meals. It was an easy 15 minute walk and the cab ride back at night cost about $5.00 US.

The ocean in front of this property is fairly rocky with only small patches of sand, but it was okay for snorkelling. For a truly excellent snorkelling experience hire one of the boats from the dock in town. With just a short boat ride you will be over a beautiful protected marine area. There is also an expansive sandy beach area north of the boat dock area that has sandy areas better suited for swimming. In addition, we were told by another renter at our condo complex that there was decent snorkelling off the beach in town straight out from the large cell tower. If you have your own snorkelling equipment try this as we have never seen so many large barracudas in one area before.

If you are looking for a wonderful, peaceful property to visit with gorgeous views, we would highly recommend this property.

We would definitely revisit this property if we had the opportunity to do so.

We found this unit on VRBO and probably booked it because of the photos they show. It looked georgeous. This was confirmed upon arrival. What was stated in the description was very accurate and not overstated. We will definetely return. It is very clean and the grounds are well kept. The pool is very clean with next to no chemical smell. If you walk at a good pace you can be downtown in about 15 minutes. We made this trek many times and felt safe no matter the time of day. Taxi service was good as well. We had intended to rent a car, but the counter was very busy so did not. It was very easy to do without. PM is a great little town with many good resteraunts. It is not very busy so there is no waiting in a line up. The snorkelling tours are worth the price.

Puerto Morelos
Car: recommended

Puerto Morelos has that small town vacation atmosphere.

In Minnesota and Wisconsin we call it going up north, to the lake, up to the cabin, or the North Shore. Canadians often call it going to the cottage.

Caribbean Reef Villas is a small 18 unit building on a secluded beach only a short walk to Puerto Morelos were you will find countless small restaurants and bars and a beautiful fishing pier.
