The pool deck contains about twenty teak lounge chairs with cushions and side tables. They sit alongside the infinity pool that also contains a twelve person heated whirlpool. The Palma Real has a 24 hour security guard with a gated entrance.

About Eric and Lisa Ragland

We have been travelling to Mexico for many years and the more we do, the more we love it!

Now that we have our own magical place on the beach 'it feels Good! So Good! So we like to share it with others! The people here are welcoming and friendly - as they say in Mexico ‘Mi casa es Su Casa’ 'Our home is your home'!

Eric and Lisa Ragland purchased this condo in 2009

Why Eric and Lisa Ragland chose Puerto Morelos

Palma Real is a seven year old, three story, L-shaped building located on the beach just minutes from the town center of Puerto Morelos. The pool deck has comfortable teak lounge chairs with pads and side tables. They sit alongside the infinity pool that also contains a twelve person heated whirlpool which can be enjoyed even under the full moon! The Palma Real has a 24 hour security guard with a gated entrance.

What makes this condo unique

We bought in Puerto Morelos because it is a quaint little fishing village, approximately a 5-10 minute walk from the condo. It is located between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, about two kilometers off the main highway. The town square is located on the beach with lots of shops, restaurants and bars. The people are very friendly, there are traditional Mexican get togethers and fiestas in the park and we enjoy the fact that it still has a genuine mexican feel to the area as there it is not swamped with tourists and mega resorts like Cancun. There are always taxis available to take you around town or to the condo and back, they cost about $3-4 each way.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us the use of your condo. we had a great time here and enjoyed staying in your beautiful decorated condo. It provide us with a peaceful & relaxing "Home Base" during our 2 week vacation. The grounds were gorgeous and the pool and hottub were very nice to relax in and also very clean.

We will miss having our morning coffee on the balcony. The view & the breezes were wonderful. We also enjoyed our walks into Puerto Morelos and dined in many great restaurants.

Thanks again.

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My girls, ages 14 & 10, enjoyed this trip so much. It was a much needed break from the day to day stresses and allows us to step back and appreciate so much. We spent much of the time at the pool because the ocean was still pretty murky from the tropical storm but we didn't mind it at all. All of the locals were extremely kind and very helpful with anything we needed. I never felt unsafe even with it just being me and the girls. The condo was beautiful and the bed was extremely comfortable. It was a great experience and we will definitely do it again.

Lovely condo.

  • 4 of 5

Condo was wonderful, but a bit too isolated for our taste. We never rent a car, preferring to walk every where in Puerto Morelos. I did not want to walk home at night, although during the day it was just fine. But the condo was just great and we did thoroughly enjoy our stay.

The place was perfect! I can't imagine needing anything else to enhance our stay! The bed was super comfy, the kitchen had everything we needed to cook breakfast. TV's in both rooms was a plus. We loved having a washer and dryer! We can't wait to go back!!!

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

The place was amazing. I'd like to say it was horrible so no one else books cause it's already booked next year. Was perfect. Thought the walk past the shipping dock would be unpleasant, but we actually really enjoyed that walk after a big dinner in town. Always felt very safe. Loved the area, the unit was exactly as described, absolutely NO surprises. Loved PM, the people and the restaurants. We made so many friends that own there or rent there that we will return. Eric was sooooo easy to work with, the "Canada Transfers" ride in went above and beyond. Everything was smooth easy and exactly what we needed.

Puerto Moreles virgins

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Puerto Morelos. The condo was comfortable enough for 4 people, however a full second bedroom would be nice ( we stayed for 15 days). The other owners and renters at Palma Real were extremely friendly and very helpful.

We received good service from the owner of our unit and the property management company. We cooked/barbecued a fair bit, however we enjoyed the restaurants Habeneros, Little Italy, Clandestynas and La Sirenas. We even bought fish twice at the cooperative. Many nights we walked into town to see what entertainment was in the Town Square.

We would definitely recommend Palma Real to anyone going to PoMo!

Great Time In Puerto Morelos

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation began in Playa Del Carmen with 6 of our friends the week before we came to Palma Real. They all still work and could only get away for a week and we wanted to stay longer but somewhere new to us. Having never been to Puerto Morelos and not knowing if we would like the area I booked the condo for 2 weeks. Big mistake!! I should have taken it for a month! Puerto Morelos is now my new favorite place!

The condo was comfortable and had everything we needed. Didn't take long to settle into a daily routine. We met friendly people around the pool, both owners and vacationers, that gave us tips on where to eat and what to check out. Most afternoons everyone gathered around the pool for beverages and chat time.

The first walk into town going around the port was interesting to say the least but we never felt threatened. We went into town almost every evening for dinner because we wanted to try all the small "hole in the wall" eateries we saw! The food was so good and very reasonable, so why cook! We only had 1 dinner that was just ok. If it was just the 2 of us we took a taxi back, if we went with people we met at the condo, we walked back together. Just bring a little flashlight or use your phone flashlight, cause the road behind the port is bumpy! Sometimes we went into town twice a day, if we went for breakfast or to the little market for grocery items. The taxis are plentiful but negotiate the price before getting in. It's different every time!

After running around on numerous excursions in PDC the week before, it was nice to just chill by the pool and go for beach walks. The only downside in the condo location is that you can't walk the beach north to town. We did walk south past the Caribbean Reef condos and El-Cid all inclusive to the marina. In front of those places the beaches are raked and nice. Where there are open areas or where nothing is built there is sargassum grass that's washed ashore along with assorted plastic bottles and junk. At Palma Real, Gustavo keeps the beach nice.

The owner of the condo, Eric, was a pleasure to work with and promptly answered any email questions I had. The property management, Mayan Riviera Properties, was just as responsive to any problems at the condo. We stopped at their office while in town one morning and reported a couple small things that needed to be fixed and they were there that afternoon to make repairs!

We enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back to PM and Palma Real!
