"Best couple vaction ever!!!! Four adult couples the accommodations were perfect and incredible!! Angie was the best host imaginable. What ever we needed she took care of. We had them prepare dinner for us upon arrival and it was the best. They stayed with us and hung out until we were settled in. The house was phenominal. The best equiped house we have ever stayed in. The owners were absolutely amazing to work with. There recommendations for restaurants were spot on. We rented bikes in town and
it the best decision for convenience and fun. The town was filled with the friendliest people everywhere we went When they say the " Mayberry of Mexico" they are not kidding at all. We could not have been more please with our trip. Top notch."

"this was our 4th stay @ palma real (1st stay in this unit). easily the best views in the entire complex. as a repeat visitor to palma real we knew what to expect & we were not disappointed. the condo unit itself has most everything you need. you will need to purchase condiments for cooking & extra toilet paper but that's about it. Gustavo the pool & maintenance guy continues to keep all areas clean. Carlos the property manager is a wealth of information & very helpful. the owner was very easy to deal with & answered any questions we had. on those days that you need to chill inside, the owner has provided Netflix which was wonderful as we needed a break from the sun & heat.
complaints - no safe in the unit (so you may want to find a hiding place for valuables while you out). the unit advertises a dryer, however the dryer does not product hot air (only cool air) as there is no vent. we experienced the same situation in other units. neither of these complaints will discourage us from revisiting palma real."

"We stayed at the Caribbean Reef Villa for two weeks. I would say it is close to perfect. The pool is amazing. The property is right on the beach. Nice and quiet. Only about 20 units. The staff do well maintaining the grounds. Our room was cleaned three times during our stay. Our one bedroom unit was larger than I thought it was going to be and the layout (murphy bed in the living room, two full bathrooms) would allow for having guests stay with you The only downside is the location. It is a bit less than a mile south of town but you cannot walk the beach into town. you either walk the road or walk by the perimeter of the shipping yard. We typically walked into town but took a taxi back (50 pesos). A location North of town would be better but the property itself is great."

"We are from CA and booked a last minute getaway and chose the Qunitana Roo area because Hawaii had hurricanes at the time. Neither of us had been to that part of Mexico. We found this condo and it had great reviews. All the reviews are true, it's an exceptional condo and property.
We went during off season and we were the only ones at the Villas so once we got past wondering what the catch was we settled in for a week of relaxation. The view is amazing, the grounds are well maintained, aside from some pool tile that needs some repairs. The people were very nice and balanced well between leaving us alone and making sure our needs were met. The local people in Puerto Morelos are very nice and we were there for the Mexican Independence Day celebration and chose to get a local experience over flocking to tourist spots. It was really fantastic. We are vegan so there were good restaurant choices in town and a grocery nearby.
I only have two small nits. One was that the fridge was out of commission in the condo which we were bummed about because we expected to cook more meals for ourselves. However, they had a small fridge bright in, counter sized and we were given access to use one in one of the other rooms to store our stuff. Not a deal breaker for us alone but could have been if we had brought kids.
The second problem was the seaweed. Read up on it before you go. The Villas staff cleaned it one day but honestly it's a full time job for about 10 people. We walked on beaches at a resort, in Playa and Paradise Beach in Tulum and this is a major problem for the entire area. That Caribbean blue in pictures is now brownish yellow and the beaches are piled high with the stuff. Workers are using heavy equipment and nets to try to control it but it's not possible. We opted to settle back at the villa with the infinity pool to ourselves and one patch of beach that was relatively under control. It's really sad to see and doesn't smell great either.
Again, the condo was amazing. If I were in the market to buy one, it would be this one! Don't miss Chitza Itza, we rented a car and drove ourselves it was super easy. There are tolls so bring pesos."
