Can't go wrong here - all the 5-star reviews are dead on

  • 5 of 5

Villa Karina was a joy, as was dealing with Dora, as many have said. The rocky beach behind the villa was the only minor issue; but since there is a fabulous stretch of beach near town (walking distance for even the most physically challenged) we will give them a pass on that. We did visit during a time of stormy weather and rain and rough seas, so the situation might be better in other times. The house is GORGEOUS, all the bedrooms are awesome, and with the minor exception of a noisy A/C in the dining room, everything worked great. Something not mentioned are the brick arches located in two locations in the villa, which are architectural novelties which are awesome to see. The rooftop setting, with a table/chairs and pair of lounge chairs is a nice place to sit and hang out also. The location is perfect - just near town, and close to Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, and not awfully far from Tulum. Everything was SO affordable there - we all took too much money for the costs we incurred. Gardening, pool services, and maid service were all top notch. One of the highlights of the trip is the covered cabana (or whatever they call it) between the pool and the ocean in the back - so comfortable and inviting. We spent a lot of time out there, and so should you - ocean breezes and the sounds of the sea, comfortable seating, and an artistic presentation all around. So nice! A super top-notch villa for the price. You will not regret choosing this home !!!

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at Villa Karina. We booked ut for a wedding, and it worked out great. The location was wonderful with Puerto Moralos right there and other great places a short drive away. Dora was awesome and took care of all of our needs for the wedding day and trip in general. Highly recommend it.

Preciosa Villa Karina.

Todo maravilloso, desde los espacios hasta el trato, tanto de la Sña. Dora, como de Maria.

Perfectamente equipada para pasar unos días inolvidables, en un Paraíso.

Cuidada al más mínimo detalle, y con todas las comodidades.

Magnífica cena prepara por el chef Pablo.

No olvidaremos nuestra estancia nunca.

Gracias por todo!!

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Villa Karina is indeed paradise on earth. My family of 10 spend a fantastic week in this beautiful house and enjoyed the location on the quiet and private beach. The villa manager was serviceminded beyond words (both before and during our stay). She provided us with support for everything e.g. rental of more bicycles, chef sevices, in house massage services, taxis for restaurant visits, snorkling trips and she even did the grossery shopping and filled the fridge, before we arrived. We want to return to this magnificant house and spoil ourselves again!

Really bad experience

  • 1 of 5

Day 1: a/c units for entire first floor didn't work (50% fixed on day 4). This is for the kitchen and main living area, where families spent most of their time.

Day 2: refrigerator broke (fixed on day 4). Asked for emergency replacement and we're told No (had to wait for city technician to repair). Asked for coolers/ice and never heard back.

Day 3/4: didn't stay in house.

Day 5: main toilet on first floor broke and caused flooding. First floor plumbing system clogged. Stopped using first floor restroom for entire stay.

Whole stay: sliding doors from first and second floors didn't lock, making house unsafe and personal belongings exposed. Exterior gate to beach didn't lock. House is right next to a nude beach hotel, not a good place for kids.

Overall we are very unsatisfied with house appliances not working as they should and the long time that took to fix them. We also lacked privacy as cleaning crew and gardeners got in and out of house without notice.

To make things worse house manager (Dora) and property manager (Maria) were very disrespectful to us. We were misleaded by the good reviews in this website and hope someone had share their bad experience as we are doing it now. We travel frequently and never had an experience like this before.

Owner's Response: Mr. Alejandro Quintero, Please refer to the letter that I sent you on the 30th of June asking you to leave the Villa and that the police would be called if necessary if you did not comply with leaving the premises. It is clear that your review has been written out of vengeance. I have already contacted Homeaway about this matter since reviews on Homeaway and other respectful rental websites are meant to give an accurate opinion of the rental properties and experiences from guests. Reviews on these web sites are not meant to be used as a tool for personal vengeance. We have only wonderful guests staying at Villa Karina, many who return year after year but unfortunately you are the exception Mr. Quintero. You are the only group we had to ask to leave.

Beautiful property great location.

The house was beautiful. Dora was amazing. Pablo's dinners were excellent. Only complaint was the beach and water were covered in seaweed. Too bad Dora can't manage Mother Nature.
