“Beautiful, relaxing w/ great dining & diving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Just got back from a completely relaxing week at CRV. Stayed in Unit 111, just steps from the beautiful infinity pool and private beach. The unit was totally updated with every amenity you could want. Walked to town every morning, about 1 km, and experienced fantastic restaurants and great people.
Diving was terrific and saw everything from octopus to bottlenose dolphins.

We just returned from a week's long stay at the Caribbean Reef Villas. We stayed in the Penthouse #200 and thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the balcony overlooking the Caribbean Sea. You can even see it while lying in the bed. It was a joy to wake up to the beautiful orange sunrises each morning. The staff was very attentive and there was a cell phone in the condo that we could use for taxi, etc. I actually used it to text Arlen, who was the property manager when we needed something fixed. She was at the condo the next day to fix it. This condo had everything we wanted, almost. A BBQ would have been a nice addition so we could grill the freshly caught fish we bought at the co-op each day. We originally thought bicycles would have been a welcome addition as well until we found the short cut to walk to town, which we did once a day. The walk was not far and actually enjoyable to see how the people of Puerto Morelos work and live. As said before it is close to the Port where ships come in and either deliver or pick up containers,we didn't find it bothersome, we were in awe how this ship could maneuver so close to land and "park" along the dock to make a delivery. The ocean is rather warm, warmer than the infinity pool at the complex. We also enjoyed that it was on the southern end of town away from all of the hotels so we could have the entire beach to ourselves.

Room Tip: All rooms face the ocean, the Penthouse, which we were in has a large balcony with a hammack and fur...

Stayed here for a week with my family and it was just beautiful!!! The management was great and Laura at Mayan Rivera Properties was great in helping us find this place. The beach was beautiful and so private we seen 2 people on the beach the whole week. The inside of the condo was very clean and beautifully decorated. We will continue to stay at here every year we come back.

The property is a ways out of town, so we walked a lot. We enjoyed this for the most part. Taxis were a little more than expected - $4 for a <1/2 mile. During off season it was quiet but can see how it would feel noisy & crowded when full, particularly when children present, which were during part of our stay. It would be much nicer if it were adults only.
The unit seemed roomy enough although the kitchen was small. Be advised that there is no elevator, for penthouse suites. Small but quiet beach, somewhat rocky. Palapas on it were nice. Pool is awesome.
Lots of great restaurants in town, but a walk for sure. Get groceries in Cancun before going there, limited supplies in town.
Commercial port nearby did load for a whole day - we left so didn't listen to it the whole time. Mostly it stops you from walking the beach all the way to town.

Nice condos but located very close to commercial ferry dock. Used to have a great beach but it's gone and mostly rocky coast now. El Cid resort is quite close so it's not the out of the way place it once was. Mostly one bedroom condos for US retirees. Does have a great oceanfront pool.
