“Wonderful house - not like other rentals”

House was fantastic. The cook, Constantina is wonderful and the food is great. We liked her cooking better than the local restaurants. The house had everything we needed, was in great shape and really close to the beach. Beach is just steps from pool. The kitchen is enormous and you can buy food at the local grocery store or just eat the left overs if Constantina cooks for you. She makes amazing margaritas and piña coladas. Pack your own shampoo and conditioner. Traveled with 2 kids who were very happy with their room. Kids rooms can accommodate 4 kids. Did not like shower in Bamboo room and used kids shower instead. Would stay again. Has washer and dryer that are easy to operate. Has gas stove and nice cooking supplies. Is close to Main Street that has all tourist shops. Has great wifi. TV was complicated for me but easy for my husband to figure out. Air conditioning is strong and very cool but is hot if you turn off so maybe pack sweatshirt if you get cold at night.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

“Fabroso / Fabulous”
Reviewed 19 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

One of the most beautiful homes we have stayed in. A two minute walk put us on one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in Playa Del Carmen. Because that part of the beach is in front of private homes, it is not crowded with hotel guests. We had a wonderful time snorkeling in the Yal-Ku Lagoon and saw no less than six sea turtles snorkeling in front of the Lo Ha restaurant at Akumal. Dinner at Alux restaurant inside the cave is one of the most unique restaurants in the world and the food was fabulous. Our experience was 5 Star and the owners, Nancy and Bob made everything easy for us. Their home manager, Julian was available to us anytime we called with many helpful tips on the local scene. My wife and I really enjoyed the close availability of Playacar's excellent 18 hole golf course. We have scuba dived all over the world and The reefs around Playa Del Carmen are some of the best anywhere and without the crowds found in Cancun. We would recommend Casa Caracol to anyone wanting to have a memorable time on the Mayan Rivera.
