All beds come with top-quality linens and down pillows for your sleeping comfort. Each bed has been fitted with very comfortable memory-foam pads for a restful sleep after a hard day of sunshine, the ocean breezes, and exciting exploration. The well-kept grounds contain a swimming pool with beach access. Having just six units in the building allows for intimacy and privacy.

We just loved Puerto Morelos! The terrace and it's furniture was very wonderful! The kitchen was also great and very complete, we were surprised of the great quality of all the accessories: great knifes, pans and we were so happy with the expresso machine.The place was very clean, Marlene who came to clean the place was very nice and did a very great job.Tomas was very nice and helpful whenever we needed help. Loved the beach, and the view day and night, the moments on the terrace were a must!

Fantastic Property, perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

The incredible view, and extensive patio did not disappoint! The location would have bit tricky to find on our own, but Gonzolas the manager met us at the Crocun Zoo which is about 2.5 miles away and guided us in. Nestled in a very quiet neighborhood, yet only 8 min from town, the location was great. It's a second floor unit, in a small condo grouping, but there were only the grounds keeper and wife there for most of our week stay. Master bedroom had great storage, and an adjoining bathroom for me, and the smaller bath for my fiance down the hall. The smaller bedroom also had decent storage, a two small twin beds. Quaint Moroccan inspired furniture, wifi, and satellite TV. The kitchen had nice amenities, save the funky but functional and clean on the inside fridge. Clothes washer was broken, but our laundry was picked up and delivered the same day. Air conditioner rocks! Clean, cool, quiet, comfy with a dynamite view. We will be back!

Casbah Del Mar Needs Some Love

  • 3 of 5

Our family of three recently spent eight days in Puerto Morelos and rented Casbah del Mar. PM is a beautiful fishing town with gorgeous beaches, great restaurants, multitude of activities or the perfect setting to read a book and work on your tan. We will return to PM - sadly, our one disappointment was the condo we rented. This property is far from "luxury" as it is listed and has been seriously neglected. It is in dire need of a good cleaning and paint job throughout. The outside furniture hasn't been cleaned in eons which is evidenced by the cobwebs and bird poop. The dead plants on the terrace do nothing to enhance this. The outside terrace also needs a thorough cleaning. There is no shade on the terrace (as mentioned in other reviews). A sunproof awning would be a welcome addition. The interior furniture in living room has also seen better days. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. The kitchen is far from "fully stocked" falls far short of that. The two redeeming factors in the kitchen were the dishes provided as well as the glassware. Otherwise, the kitchen is a mess with drawer fronts falling off & cracked cabinets that should have been replaced long ago. The bathrooms appear to have been updated and were in fairly good condition. The Master Bath seldom had water pressure nor hot water. A large chunk of tile is missing on the Master Bath vanity. We were provided with four small bath towels for the three of us. The swimming pool is lovely; however, in eight days we NEVER saw the pool thoroughly cleaned and noone ever hosed down the pool area. The manner in which it was cleaned and maintained was questionable at best. We saw the Groundskeeper dump a bucket of something in the pool twice during our eight days. The pool was never vacuumed as is the case at every property we have every stayed at. The grounds around this property have been truly overlooked and not "well-kept" as described. Housekeeping is at a bare minimum and was provided only once during our eight day stay. It should be mentioned that neither the housekeepers or the Groundskeeper speak any English. Fortunately, our daughter is fluent and we were able to manage. There is no "Property Manager" on premises. We saw who we took to be the Property Manager for a total of five minutes our first day and never again. At no time did we receive a copy of our rental contract or info packet which we requested from the owner. No book supplied giving tips to area.

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

The private outdoor deck that goes with the unit is just incredibly big and beautiful. The gorgeous beach is immediately below. The unit is nicely furnished and the kitchen is well-equipped. The second bedroom is rather small, but overall, it's a very nice place. It's a bit of a walk to town - or a 50 pesos cab ride. The trickiest part was finding the place the first time. The house is called Casa Del Mar, and local drivers know the street it's on - Calle de Palapas - but the driver who took us from the airport didn't know the area and we had to help him find it. It would be nice if there had been a notebook with more local information. We would return to this unit if we return to Puerto Morelos, which is a nice, clean town.

Amazing beach front property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here a week during spring break. We went to town almost every night for dinner and the drive was about 7 minutes from the condo. We enjoyed the very large terrace and had breakfast and coffee out there before heading to the ruins, snorkeling and cenotes every day. In my opinion Puerto Morelos is the place to be if you want a quaint town feel. We visited Cancun and Playa de Carmen but we all agreed we picked the right place here on the beach. The property is clean and the beds were comfortable. There is plenty of room on the deck for friends and family to spend the day if you choose, the only problem I saw was we didn't want to leave. Thank you John for sharing your home, life here is truly a beach!

This was my 5th visit and counting, need I say more?! Seriously this condo has it all. It always delivers..

It is the best location in town ( just a short taxi or walk down the beach) and when my travel plans changed John really went out of his way too work with me and I'm so thankful he did!

Relaxation is key here and the perfect place to get away from it all, this beats a resort any day of the week!

Thanks again John and Elaine for sharing your slice of heaven with me!!

Car: recommended

Only a short twenty five-minute walk to town along the beach, Casbah Del Mar sits in a quiet little section of beach homes secluded from traffic and noise. We have discovered that this little area of the Yucatan has managed to keep its charm and character, and we want to share our little secret with you.
