This Villa Is Perfect!!!!
We were fortunate enough to have picked Casa Caribeña for our vacation this
year. Since I was the person in charge finding the place, I can tell you
that I reviewed, closely, at least 10 other villas and even in reviewing,
Casa Caribeña came out on top. Casa Caribeña has the most reviews (5 Star)
of any villa in the Tulum area, and it includes the cook, has a roof top
pool besides the regular pool, and is priced so reasonably. I don’t know
why I kept looking???
Now, about our vacation… it was the best we’ve ever had. The villa is
incredibly clean and the girls kept it that way the entire week. It is
wonderfully spacious so if someone wanted to take a siesta, they could
without being disturbed. There is plenty of space for everyone to be
together on the beach, around the pool, on the roof, in the living room and
eating meals both inside and outside. Walking only 10 steps on the powdery
white sand beach to the Caribbean water was beautiful! This is
beachfront!!! The food was as delicious as all the previous reviews said.
The snorkeling in front of the villa was the best we saw in all of the
places we snorkeled. The kayaks were lots of fun and enabled those who
really don’t like to get wet, the opportunity to enjoy the water anyways.
The cenote that is a 3 minute walk from the villa was lovely! We didn't
have to leave Casa Caribeña to enjoy an entire week of wonderful things to
keep us busy.
We loved our stay at Casa Caribeña and we will return.

“Best vacation spot for our entire family - young and old!”
Reviewed December 7, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed here over Thanksgiving week - there were 13 of us ranging from 11 months to 79 years. It was the perfect spot for all of us - the location on the beach was ideal; right on the water with plenty of sand right in front of the home. We felt very safe - and also remote and secluded from the craziness of some of the mega-resorts. The snorkeling was great out on the reef - though the wind came in for the last few days. The accessibility to exploring the Yucatan was ideal as well - we went to Chichen Itza one day (about 2 hours away), explored Los Dos Ojos Cenote, and visited Muyil Ruins and then floated the Mayan canals (so cool).

What was the best? Coming home every evening to an amazing meal prepared by Lily and her staff. We decided to stay in every night and eat because her cooking was so great. And you can't beat the convenience. Chicken mole, enchiladas, fajitas....the grilled fish was seriously the best fish I've every had. Thank you, Lily! They kept the house immaculate while we were there and yet I feel like we never saw them.

The house had lots of fun board games for the evenings....plenty of sand toys and floaties for the kids (and adults!)...the a/c in the rooms was so important for night time.

Prior to our trip, Lisa was amazing - she was so patient in answering all of our questions and provided detailed information and tips while we were planning (months, weeks, days and hours before!). Such a wonderful resource to have. Thank you!

We are already trying to plan a time to come back and stay at Casa Caribena. I can't recommend it enough!

There is no better place to get together with family or friends. The welcome on arrival by Lili, the beauty of the villa, the palms trees and the sea already told us that we would have a wonderful week.

The house is very large, very well maintained and clean. The meals that were prepared for us by Lili and her team were delicious!!!!

With the beautiful pool, the palm trees that surround the house, and the roof pool, terrace and bar, we could spend hours and hours without getting bored! We couldn’t miss out on the sea and the beach which were beautiful and were cleaned daily. Close to home, is a cenote where we could swim for an hour, surrounded by jungle. Beautiful!! It was the turtle season; we had the chance to see, on the beach, a turtle around 250 kg!

In Tulum are good little places to eat and take a walk. We went to visit the ruins of Coba, and of course we brought our bathing suits to cool in a underground cenote. It is so beautiful and amazing! We also went to Coco Bongo, we had so much fun, and had a great service from José, the taxi driver. If you need a taxi, ask for him, he usually is waiting at the Pavo Real Hotel by the guard hut.

Casa Caribena is the best place for a dream vacation, and get together with family or friends in a haven of peace.

See you in September 2016!!

“Amazing, Wonderful Vacation!”

Our week at Casa Caribena was the best! The house, which they call a villa, is huge and we all found our favorite spots to hang out. We enjoyed every part of the place, from the beautiful gardens teaming with life (some pictures included below) to the lovely pool. Both pools (roof and garden) have great lounging areas and the sunsets from the roof top pool were incredible. This lovely home has an excellent flow through out, and every bedroom has its own bathroom!

Every meal was truly delicious. We tried all of the house favorites on the menu and they all we great. Some of the best Mexican food we have ever had in Mexico! We’ve stayed in other vacation rentals before and always had to do our own cooking. Having someone take care of the shopping, cooking, and cleaning was wonderful and made the trip that much more relaxing. This was a real treat for the cooks in our group. The cooks/maids entered the house in the morning, made breakfast (at a time we set), and cleaned up the house after we finished eating. We didn’t see them again until they returned to cook dinner. They were very unobtrusive but have their own house on the backside of the property in case we needed something.

The soft sandy beach was kept spotless, so taking out the kayaks or snorkeling was a breeze. The snorkeling was fantastic and right in front of the house! Some of us went Scuba diving with the dive shop that is just next door (Tankah Divers, http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g150813-d5583634-Reviews-Tankah_Divers-Tulum_Yucatan_Peninsula.html). Talk about convenient! The dive master Hailey was safe, helpful and wonderful to dive with! They saw turtles, eels, tons of fish, beautiful sea fans and colorful coral (see photo of sea turtle, “Ron”). They also went cavern diving at Dos Ojos cenote (less than a 15 minute drive away) with the same dive shop and loved it!

We hit the perfect time to watch mother turtles coming up to lay their eggs and to see baby hatchlings making their way to the sea, all at the same time. WOW, what an experience!!!! Evidently, the end of August and September are when you can see both things on one outing. We had turtles come up to lay their eggs right on our beach!!!

We highly recommend Casa Caribena for your next vacation. The owners are very hospitable and very helpful. Our group concurs; it was the best vacation that we’ve had! We look forward to vacationing here again soon!

“Casa Caribena blows away this villa snob”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

people found this review helpful

As avid divers, we travel considerably, and always stay in a villa by the water. We insist on this, as we also have snorkelers and small children who need to enjoy the beach. Very frankly, we were blown away. We had 13, including 3 small children, but all 10 adults could not have been more pleased.

Lisa prepared us so well, that no stone was left unturned during our trip. Lily and her team were the consummate hosts and cooks, even happily acquiescing to 3 late to very late night dinners due to a late arrival and two night dives that would have turned many cooks into frothing malcontents.

Lisa also gave us a nugget about the turtle sanctuary nearby, and at the appointed time, we visited the part of the beach where these behemoths lay their eggs in the dark of night. We went not once,,,not twice, but three separate times. If you stay at Casa Caribena, you HAVE to experience this.

I personally fell asleep in the hammock several times as it swayed with the afternoon Caribbean breezes, but usually, it wasn't open for me. (Next time, I might just rent the place by myself)

We rented all 6 bedrooms, so had full usage of all 3 floors, and the most enjoyable was the top deck, where we enjoyed the dipping pool after our dives each day. After cooling off, we would sit in the lounge chairs...some of us in the shade, and some worshiping the sun, but all of us basking in the welcomed breezes that picked up about that time of day. It is on this floor that I could see myself in retirement, finally getting to that book I have promised myself I would write.
