The house was a perfect fit for my family.
I think we should have had more information about the workings of the house. We were out of water for 24 hours. I left some clothes by accident...certainly my fault but I have asked that they be returned at no cost to me for the inconvenience. I have not had a reply.
We just returned from 10 days at condo 232 at Caribbean Reef Villas. The condo was exactly as pictured; spotless and well-appointed. The kitchen has everything you will need to cook for yourselves. The living room opens onto a deck that is directly above the pool, and the ocean is directly beyond that. The window in the bedroom affords the same view and it was so nice to fall asleep to the sound of waves and to awake to the sun rising over the Caribbean Sea. The condo has air conditioning, but we never needed it, as there are ceiling fans and a beautiful ocean breeze to keep you cool. The entire complex is meticulously maintained and the maintenance staff are constantly working to ensure that the grounds and pool are above expectations. The condo is managed by Mayan Riviera Properties. They were extremely helpful and easy to deal with, from the time we booked through to the time we left.
The complex is located about 2 kilometers from the beach town of Puerto Morelos, an easy walk along the road (you cannot access the town by walking along the beach, as there is a government dock that you cannot pass through). A further 2.5 kilometer walk will take you into the Colonia of Puerto Morelos, where you will find authentic Mexican restaurants, groceries, fresh fish fruit and veggie stands, etc. A taxi into town costs about 50 pesos and one into the Colonia costs about 80 pesos.
The only negative was that the beach had accumulated piles of seaweed that had washed in from the reef. The staff worked for hours every morning to clean the beach in front of the condo, but we were not able to swim in the ocean as much as we would have liked. However, this is the fault of mother nature and not the staff at the Villas! We would highly recommend staying here; you won't be disappointed!
