My husband and I have been to Xcalak four times in the past five years. We hope to go back at least as often in the future. In the past we stayed at a different place each time, thinking we would try them all out. But now that we have been to Casa Carolina, that´s where we will stay every time we go to Xcalak. To start with, the beach is the best. They keep it immaculately clean, and it's both deeper and wider than the beach at any of the other places we stayed. There are only four rooms, so even when they were full, everyone could be pretty spread out out on the beach so I was never distracted by other people's conversations. The location is great. The condition of the beach road seemed to have deteriorated a lot since the last time we were in Xcalak. From Casa Carolina it was still just a short ride into town when we wanted to go out to dinner or into town for something. Plus, the grocery trucks haven't run out of things yet when they get to Casa Carolina! And Casa Carolina itself, well, it was wonderful. We loved our room. The view is magnificent--I could have spent the whole time lying in the hammock on the balcony of our room-- the room is beautiful and well designed, and you just have to see the bathrooms. Big showers and gorgeous tile. We appreciated being able to really spread our things out in the room. Bob and Caroline really made us feel at home. It is apparent how much they love Xcalak, and the Yucatan in general. They were very generous in sharing their time and knowledge to help their guests make the most of their vacations. We felt like we were leaving life long friends when we left, but we will be back.
