What Past Guests Are Saying
Nice but not amazing
The good: The home and beach it sits on is nice. Water is crystal blue and sand is clean and soft. Staff is friendly and helpful and kept things running smoothly. Private chef for the neighborhood is awesome!
The bad: The house sleeps 10 but the family room and dining room are only set up for 6-8 max. We could never all have a meal together at the table or watch tv/movies together as a family. Same with lounge chairs around the pool. Not enough. It is not on a private beach so you will get many people either walking by or parking themselves right in front of your house. The pool was frigid (in april) and not heated and it is all 4 ft deep so not great for small kids. The neighborhood, although gated and secure is under major construction so most plots are being built and in rough condition. Except for a few high end villas, most are in need of repair or finishing. The area is isolated, not much near it except the Iberostar resort which we day passed for a day and it was really just okay. Food was horrendous. No matter what you read, Puerto Morales is 20 minutes away and Playa del Carmen is 45 minutes away. Cancun is about 30 mins away.
If you are looking for a 4 star property then you won't be disappointed. We were looking for a 5 star so we weren't entirely happy. If you want to stay in most of the day and enjoy the beach and just head out for dinner here and there then this is a good spot. If you want to do a lot of excursions, shopping, dining out, then be prepared to drive alot. Book for 6-8 adults and you will be comfortable. 10 was too many for this home.
Nice stay but not our favorite....
The home was lovely and the proximity to the beach was great. However, the pool was ice cold, home's common areas were too small for 10 guests and the neighborhood was not as nice as we had hoped for. Generally good security but under major construction all around. Also, proximity to dining and shopping was at least a 20 min drive and larger towns were 40 mins away. Farther then we had been told. - Seema S., ,
Relaxing and beautiful vacation! A perfect family get away.
Coordinating the trip was incredibly easy with the help of Luxury Retreats. The house was as described and beautiful. The location was perfect if you want something quiet, but close enough to other resorts and towns for day excursions. Perfect for families with kids. - Nicole L., ,
Jorge was always helpful and kind. The cook was great! The houses beautiful, even the turtles came to enjoy! Lovely times! - Norely C., ,
Our winter holiday
The house and location met our expectations which were high. Jorge, the on site staff, was very helpful and a great resource. He made our trip much easier. It was all good! - Allan E., California, USA
Our stay at Villa Carolina was Great! We all had an amazing time and the People were very nice and were always there if you needed them. Everything from booking to coming bake home went smoothly. The housekeeper was there every day and kept our place spotless. The property manager was always there and helped us with everything including grocery shopping and getting us to-go food at local restaurants.We will probably do this again. - Gerald K., New Hampshire, USA
Best vacation ... EVER
From start to finish Luxury Retreats took great care of us, from finding the right location, through booking and planning, right up to boarding the airplane home. The property was exquisite and the people we dealt with and met were exceptional. It was the perfect vacation! Particular thanks go out to Jay Lunan would started our connection with Luxury Retreats and answered every question and concern promptly and corteously and closed the deal" ... to Claudia Collado who got us ready for the journey and to the best Property Manager Jorge (and his staff Lucy and "Jerry") who became part of our family while making our stay at Villa Carolina satisfying and memorable. A special thanks to Rutas Prehispanicas, the transportation company arranged by Claudia. Their service and especially their driver Ricardo, set the tone for the rest of our vacation." - David P., ,
The best villa experience ever
I could not have been more thrilled with the villa and the staff at Luxury Retreats and staff on the ground. Frederick and Jennifer were prompt to answer any questions are were very personable. Jorge the property manager went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and relaxed. Jorge was ALWAYS one call away and never disappointed! He introduced us to a friend who cooked a beautiful dinner which included wine service, he found us a great deal to go snorkling and he came over at 10pm to fix our wifi. The cleaning service was the cherry on top, she did a great job cleaning, arranging our stuff and even re-filled the fridge with our beer! I was so impressed with the overall service, I have and will recommend Luxury Retreats to all my friend and family. - Kristy J., ,
Our Stay at Villa Carolina
We had a wonderful vacation! Our home was as beautiful as advertised, and created the setting for a wonderful family vacation. Add to that the wonderful concierge service (Marilu) provided by luxuryretreats, and it made for one of our most memorable family experiences.
