“Best beach, best location, best place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2011

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.

Room Tip: 4 rooms--all ocean front, all great

We stayed at Casa Carolina for 7 days from March 10 to the 16th. It is a great place only surpassed by the owners and staff. The highlite of this years trip was seeing and swimming with a Manatee and I have pictures to prove it. Thanks Bob and Caroline for another great trip.

We loved Casa Carolina. The clean, comfortable rooms face the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Snorkeling is spectacular and convenient. The hosts are gracious and well informed. It couldn't have been more delightful -- we hope to return to Casa Carolina again and again.

My husband and I just returned from a too short stay at Casa Carolina and we totally loved the place! Very tranquil with a wonderful location on a really beautiful beach which is kept pristine by daily raking and tidying. it is a magical hotel and we cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you to Caroline and Bob for their incredible hospitality. Bob makes the best
margaritas ever, although one is definitely enough, and Caroline is very happy to arrange any day trip you wish to do. We really enjoyed the boat-ride to Bird Island with our wonderful guide, Fernando, after which he took us for three awesome snorkelling dives at the reef. Casa Carolina is the place to stay if you are going to visit Xcalak.

We had 10 nights stay at Casa Carolina and completely chilled out, in this very peaceful setting. Rooms were great, excellent kitchen and the bathroom was also better than expected. Great to have a couple of drinks in the evening with other guests and the hosts Bob and Carolina. Would recommend this this place to anyone who wants to get away from it all and relax!

My husband and I stayed here for a short stay just after Christmas, and the place was amazing. Clean, comfortable rooms, excellent views and the most amazing snorkeling ever. We both slept extremely well, and wish we didnt have to leave. We arrived with the intent to stay 3 days, we stayed 4 and then moved up the beach to another hotel. The area itself is one of the nicest places we have ever visited. The trash that is mentioned in other reviews on this area isnt quite as unsightly or bad as some would lead you to believe. They do not have any infrastructure or way to dispose of the trash on the entire stretch of coastline, but all the area hotels seem to take really good care of their particular stretch of sand. The trash comes in daily from cruise ships and the tradewind currents which blow directly in bringing alot of debris from the opean ocean, and other countries that dispose of trash at sea(Jamaia, Honduras, Venezuela)

Wonderful hotel with everything our family needed--a quiet beach with great snorkeling off the dock, kayaks to use, bicycles to go into town, a darling room with a well equipped kitchenette, nice little breakfast in the morning, and a peaceful sleep in the evening. We would definitely return!!!
