"My wife and I where at the condo for a week which was our first trip to Mexico, the experience we had at the condo was awesome. The condo is perfect and the property is pristine, this was our first trip to Mexico and staying at Caribbean Reef Villas was the perfect spot. The staff was very friendly and helpful upon our arrival and stay at the property and the town of Puerto Morelas is wonderful. We would recommend d this condo."

Fantastic Location, Responsive Management, Just a few Glitches
"The previous reviews pretty much cover the many good aspects about Casita Blanca condos, unit A5 and its owner. The complex's buildings, grounds, pool and beach areas were all well maintained. We found it an easy walk (about 8 Mexican blocks) down a sandy beach to PM's town square where most restaurants, shops, ATMs, money exchange, etc are located. Also a local grocery store, Super Casa Martin, where you can purchase about all your food and drink needs. The property manager Roberto while kept very busy maintaining the complex; was always friendly and responded to any issues in a timely manner.
The condos are individually owned so the décor, amenities, updates, etc. can vary widely depending upon which unit you rent. I recommend a 3rd floor unit for the best views of the beach during the day and for moonlight shimmering on the ocean at night. The ground floor units view of the shoreline are blocked by a hedge along the property's front and the coconut trees have grown to the height where some 2nd floor balcony views may be partially blocked by their palms. Our 3rd floor condo had spectacular views as shown in the photos. The unit was adequately furnished and housekeeping came thru about every other day or so to clean. Roberto and his crew were swapping out our water heater when we arrived; after a couple tries we had muy caliente agua (alotta hot water). The rest of the appliances and utilities worked fine. The WiFi worked best out on the balcony. The safe in the back smaller bedroom with the double bed works fine if you follow Roberto's instructions. There is no real 'wall' between the bedrooms, just a large sliding wood-paneled door. We're a well-traveled crew, so this was not a privacy issue for us. Both bedrooms only have sheers for curtains. So if you get the king-sized bedroom with east ocean-facing windows; plan on being an early-riser as you awaken to the brilliant morning sunrises illuminating the room. We did not find out until after we arrived that while A5 had a large HD TV, there was no satellite/cable/local TV reception? Which pretty much made our decision to watch the Superbowl at a local cantina vs in our condo. Which while more expensive, was mas fun. Another slight glitch, the knob on our dead bolt broke off? Luckily we'd packed a of pair of needle nose pliers with us so we could grab and slide the bolt open to avoid the quandary of being locked in a 3rd floor condo. We info'd Roberto about it. He said Don't use it. Wise advice."

"What a great place to spend 10 days!
There were 6 of us and everyone had their own space. Our older daughter enjoyed the privacy of the 3rd floor efficiency, teenagers enjoyed having their own kitchen for late nite snacks, and the adults enjoyed the flow of the main floor with full kitchen and dining area which was great for all of us to enjoy our meals together.
The location of this house is excellent, basically on the beach! Within easy walking distance into town, either on the street or on the beach. You can also take the "collectivo" (local bus) into town for $5 pesos. We enjoyed taking morning walks on the beach and evening walks through the neighborhood.
Communication with Colin was excellent as we booked only 2 weeks prior to our arrival. His responses were always prompt and when we firmed up our reservation he provided lots of information about the house and Puerto Morelos. Claudia was an excellent choice for them to use as a manager for this property. She met us promptly at the house at our arrival, she provided information about the area and booked our tours. She also provided information on local car and bike rental as well as setting them up. She was always available and responded promptly to our questions or needs."

"This was my 8th visit to PM, 2nd time at Casita Blanca & 1st time in Palma's condo. We loved it! Great views, fantastic kitchen and baths, the place was clean & well stocked with linens. The couple issues we had were quickly addressed by management with fast, attentive assistance from the owner (it was on a Sunday.) I would definitely recommend this condo & owner's attentiveness & responsiveness! Looking forward to next year! Muchas gracias Palma!"
