Fantastic Property, View & Location

  • 5 of 5

This location and property leaves nothing to be desired. Our group comprised of two couples.

The pool was pristine and refreshing, the beach was cleaned each morning, Arlene made sure everything was as it should be and was attentive and helpful.

One feature that stands out at this property is the large balcony and COMFORTABLE balcony furniture. Two wicker swivel rockers with generous cushions and a wicker couch with cushions that seats three, everyone gets a nice comfortable seat as they watch the cruise ships, fishing boats, birds as they dive for fish, and the sun rises.

Lots of places to eat and lots to see around the town square which is a 20 minute walk, quick trip in the car, or a short trip on a bike.

Small Town Feel with Anazing Viee

  • 5 of 5

Karl’s unit is on the outskirts of a wonderful city that has an authentic vibe, great restaurants, a free access public beach with incredible snorkeling. The unit is spacious with a fantastic sunrise view void of the artificial all inclusive experience. Terrific support from the property management team who were very responsive

Amazing Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Karl's condo and the entire complex is beautiful. The infinity pool was cool, refreshing and quiet most days and new beach loungers were lovely and comfortable to relax by the pool or the ocean. The beach is maintained from seaweed the best a man, a rake and wheelbarrows can do. The views from the well appointed balcony are stunning. The condo comes perfectly furnished as described in the listing. The mattresses in the bedrooms were nice and firm which was excellent for our taste. Air conditioning worked perfectly and the condo gets lovely breezes from the ocean. The walk to town is perfect for meals and a taxi can be easy acquired for about $50 peso. You can walk miles along the beach to the Marina and likely past that if you wish. The wifi in the condo worked perfectly for streaming netflix for 7 of the 9 days of our vacation. The other 2 days there was no wifi available. Just preplan for these types of events for contact purposes home. Arlene and the crew at Caribbean Reef Villas were easy to contact by email or on site for any items or assistance needed. Karl was a breeze to communicate with and being a first time booker, I appreciated the quick and efficient information. Some must do tips while staying at the condo: We booked our transfers from the airport to the condo with Canada Transfers and found it simple and efficient with a pre-planned stop at the super chedraui. We also booked Chef Marco and Dona Sonia to cook for us in the condo the first night of our stay which set the tone for a relaxing vacation. Book Karl's condo now.

Perfect relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for a family getaway. The property was just as described and met all expectations. Short walk to town and staff on site were very helpful. Unit had all essentials including; nicely supplied kitchen, plenty of linens and bottled water delivered when needed. Owner was one of the best VRBO owners that I have ever dealt with...excellent communication, helpful travel hints and answered all questions in a timely manner. Would definitely stay again and can't wait to do so!!!

Beautiful beach front condo at Caribbean Reef.

  • 5 of 5

Strongly recommend for family that is seeking for a quiet, safe and privacy location to avoid the hotel zones or crowded tourist attraction in Cancun. A million dollars view of sunrise every morning from the balcony. The location is just perfect between Cancun and Playa Del Carmen that you can explorer both of the areas within 30-45 min drive. Karl is very friendly and well informed of everything that you need for your trip. Irlene the housekeeper lady is available around the property in case you need anything even for your laundry. Make sure try the best and reasonable seafood restaurant in downtown call El Pesquero and coffee shop Le Café D'Mancia has great coffee and variety of choices for breakfast. We really enjoy our stay at the condo and our day trip exploring Chichen Itza, Tulum, shopping at Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, swam at Cenote, snorkel, scuba diving at Puerto Morelos with diverpoint shop is strongly recommended. What a wonderful experience first time ever to Cancun. We will sure to come back and visit again soon.

Beyound expectations

  • 5 of 5

We were there for 2 weeks the first, with another couple. This was beyond our expectations.

Superb views complemented by an amazing pool. The condo was perfect for our needs. Kitchen is complete minus an oven which was not a problem since one could use the charcoal grill outside.

The beach itself was cleaned every day and very nice. Don't expect a swiming beach, you need water shoes, however it is perfect for snorkeling.

Everything is very well maintained by Arlene, Fernando and Maria who were amazing during our stay.

On our second week, my wife and I had the place to ourselves since there was nobody else but the staff during the day and security at night. We never felt unsafe.

So far our best vacation. Perfect location and a short taxi ride away from everything, great condo.

Concerning Karl, very easy to deal with and a very patient man answering all of our questions.

BTW, it helps to know a bit of Spanish and it is appreciated.

We will definitely be returning to this amazing place.
