"We (a cold Alaskan couple and a chilled Minnesota couple) had a great stay in the upstairs apartment at Casa Caracol! Phil came through with all the things he advertised. He had kayaks for us to use and we had a blast kayaking. My brother and I used them to go out to the reef. It was fun and we found muscles we hadn't used in a while (although, I think I pulled a fat instead of a muscle). Phil also set us up with a day of fishing, a wonderful boat trip to the Mayan Ruins, and a great half day of snorkeling at Hol Chan and Shark and Ray Alley. The rental is walking distance to a well stocked grocery, fresh produce stands, a wonder full bakery, and all the local shopping you want.
The upstairs was perfect for the four of us. Two bedroom each with their own bathrooms with showers. A beautiful well stocked kitchen which we used a ton. The deck has a great view of the reef and is a great place to relax no matter what part of the day it is. He has a housekeeper come in every couple days and she does an amazing job!!! It was so nice having a week to not worry about anything and just relax.
We had a wonderful time and Phil took all the details out of it for us. At the end of our stay, we had one credit card bill to him which included all the day excursions he booked for us and he didn't add on penny for his time and effort to set them up. He is a great guy and was wonderful to work with. We recommend him and Casa Caracol highly."

"I don't have enough great words to say about our Honeymoon Trip to Casa B'Alam! The house was exactly what we were looking for, private, accommodating for lounging and cooking in, but very easy access by both water and road. We used the bikes provided every morning to explore and ended up renting a golf cart through Mata Granda Grocery on our 3rd day so that it was a easy/fast trek to town when need be. The 2 person kayak provided was also a nice afternoon ride out to the reef for snorkeling and swimming around the sand bars. We enjoyed food at both Rojo Bar and Portofino, as well as the groceries for home cooking from Mata Grande. Aurora's Grill at Mata Grande is also an excellent stop for cold beers and good homemade food. Everyone on the island is super friendly. Our house staff - Romel, was very friendly and became a fast friend whom we hope to see again. Brittany was great answering all of my questions prior to arrival and also sending out a new blender! We will definitely be coming back to Casa B'Alam!"

"We spent 11 wonderful days and nights. At arrival we were welcomed with fresh juice from the fruit stand, some freshly baked bread from the baker and coconut brownies. Everything was as promised and even much better. The Casita is a quality place, spacious, modern and very comfortable. Maid service was excellent and even included our personal laundry; hotels would charge you "an arm and a leg". Eldon the groundskeeper was very friendly and helpful with the adventure tours to choose. Cookie the dog was keeping us company on the estate's own beach and even went swimming with us. The restaurants on the island are quality, especially Black Orchid which is just a driving minute away. The tips we got from Wolfgang for local cuisine were head on: The lobster burrito at Pupuseria, what a deal !!
Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing vacation.
