Casa Carolina was the first place I ever stayed in Costa Maya about 13 years ago. It made such an impression I decided to move full-time north of Xcalak a couple of years later. Casa Carolina has always been top-rated but when I made a return visit two weeks ago I was amazed. There are many new improvements and many... More

New owners Ben and Esther are doing a great job taking care of Casa Carolina and their guests even in the midst of moving in. I can only imagine what’s it’s going to be like once they are settled. Breakfasts and dinners are delicious. Rooms are beautiful and beach is very clean. Thank you very much, Ben and Esther for... More

Second stay at Casa Carolina and loved it every bit as much as the first. Bob and Caroline along with their staff (and dog, Tootsie) are extremely hospitable, creating the perfect environment for an awesome vacation. With only four rooms on the property there's a really nice balance of alone time and social time and you can adjust according to... More

Could not return to Mexico and not drive down to Xcalak. Would not consider staying anywhere other than at the beautiful Casa Carolina. Yet again we were greeted so warmly by Caroline and Bob, who have created such a lovely place to relax and take in the natural beauty of this area. Comfortable rooms offering everything we needed, beautiful views,... More

For the 3rd of 4th year in a row we've spent the worst of the winter weeks in Xcalak, at Casa Carolina. And Caroline & Bob never lets you down! I love, love, love the feeling of turning off the access road from the highway, turning into the sleepy little town and driving along until you reach CC! The rooms... More

My first trip to Xcalac, and definitely not the last. Casa Carolina with Caroline and Bob taking care of me will be my choice the next time for sure. Their superb hospitality and beautiful place, combined with good knowledge of the area and people, gave us the best fishing and holiday experience yet. Truly caring hosts. Not to mention magnificent... More

This was the first trip to the Yucatan for my husband and me, and we were a bit apprehensive about what it would take to get to Xcalak---could be a great adventure or a mess. We took the plunge and followed the advice we were given both by Caroline and Bob, and by reading on travel forums, and it was... More

This was our second visit to Xcalak, so we knew how much we liked the town, the environment, and the restaurants. The first time we wanted to stay at Casa Carolina, but they were already full when we tried to make a reservation, so we stayed at another hotel up the road. Take our word for it, you don't want...
