“Just What we Needed....”

My husband and I love Puerto Morelos and have stayed there a number of times over the past ten years. We usually stay in town, but I decided to book Derek's condo when I spotted it online. We arrived in a rental car, and I will admit that I hadn't done my research about how to drive to the condo; when we ended up on a dirt road passing a shipping container yard I thought maybe we had taken a wrong turn. However, we continued to the left after the yard and found the lovely Palma Real.

Palma Real is just as beautiful as the pictures depict. The condo and grounds were absolutely spotless and equipped with everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. We really enjoyed the comfortable king bed, furniture and the two beautiful bathrooms. The property was serene and peaceful. The heavy hurricane doors make for a very quiet night for sleeping; this is much appreciated in Mexico, where it is typically impossible to get away from the inevitable barking neighborhood dogs.

We actually really liked staying a bit outside of town. The walk is a great way to get in a bit of exercise before and after dining out. We also enjoyed checking out what was happening at the shipping yard as we passed. The locals are wonderfully friendly and welcoming in Puerto Morelos; we've never thought twice about safety issues. There is also a surprising number of fantastic restaurants for such a small town. We brought quite a bit of groceries with us to the condo, but ended up in town with much frequency to enjoy various happy hours and daily meal specials.

We spent a lot of time in the infinity pool and the hot tub as our visit coincided with rougher ocean waters and a sargassum event that was occurring along the entire Yucatan coast. While this didn't bother us at all, in the interest of full disclosure it is worth mentioning that the view of the ocean from the property does include the shipping dock, which can be busy with container ships and trucks when a delivery occurs. This only happened once during our visit, and we found the whole process to be interesting.

Derek, Carlos and Gustavo were very responsive, helpful and attentive before and during out stay. We highly recommend Palma Real and Puerto Morelos for vacationers who are looking for a quiet, relaxing, and welcoming place to visit.

We had made arrangements to be picked up at the airport by Carlos. We were afraid that after a 2 1/2 hours being stuff inside the airport getting our luggage and through security he may have given up on us, but he was still there waiting when we finally got out...thank you Carlos. Upon arrival at Palma Real it is everything I had previously read about drop other reviews. It has everything you need...large fully stocked kitchen, big living room with a tv and laptop computer. The bedroom is large with a big screen tv and many channels. There are 2 bathrooms and a laundry room. Carlos had the frig stalked with the groceries we had requested. The deck outside the room has table, chairs, hammock and BBQ. the beautiful pool is directly off the patio in the large courtyard. Beyond the pool is a nice little beach and the warm Caribbean.
The walk into town is a good 15 minutes along a section of dirt road behind the container pier. On our many walks into town during the day or after dark we never felt threatened by the many workers or other people we met along the way...there was always an Hola. What was a little scarier is the swampy area that is crocodile habitat next to the road...although we never saw any after dark. The one night we got a taxi back...$3...the driver mentioned he has seen crocs on the road.
There are many good restaurants in town and a beautiful beach beyond the famous tipped lighthouse.
We enjoyed our stay at Palma Real very much and our time in the Puerto Morelos area...would definitely go back again.

I am actually sitting in my hammock on the deck of our condo writing this review. This place is exactly what we wanted. Beautiful condo, well kept and modern, and directly on the beach. You feel 100% secluded while being only a 10 minute walk to town. From the start, the airport pick up with Carlos is 100% recommended. He picks you up at airport and brings you to front door. He then explains all the details of the condo and areas and recommends where in town to go if you want. He also offers a shopping service so when you get here your fridge is fully stocked with what you want. Very very good!!! Thank you Carlos. The pool area is so quiet the most peope you'll see is probably 6-7 people. The ocean is maximum 30 feet away from pool. The people we met this week are incredible. Thanks so much to Eric and Lisa, Maria and Neville and his wife. These people are owners of the condos and couldn't be better.
Now, when drive up to the unit you might be a bit hesitant as you have to pass federal port and a back road to get here but this all adds to the charm
Of being secluded from the masses in most beaches. I've read before that the beach is quiet. This is an understatement. I think we saw 2 other people the whole time we were here walking by.
Cool bar in town called la Sirena..go see Shane... He makes the best micheladas ever. ....chimichuri is another incredible Resto in town. Probably one if the best steaks I've had in years. Ask for the flank steak fantastic!!!! I can keep praising this place but you should really book to see it. The town still has the old charm of a small fishing village that one can feel totally laid back in.

“Luxury in Paradise”

Our last visit to Puerto Morelos and Derek's condo was in 2011. But it seemed like we were only gone a day. The same luxuriously appointed unit in an immaculately kept location was still there. Upscale appliances for your use, a very comfy bed for sleeping, and a fabulous pool/hot tube for relaxing. And at a reasonable fee.
The walk into town is only 10 minutes. But beware that if it rains you will need a taxi; too many mud holes to navigate. It is a safe walk; no one bothers you. The only problem is taxi fair consistencies. If you are outside in the evening use bug spray. Restaurants usually provide some, but best to have your own. This was a really bad year for mosquitoes.
The unit manager , Carlos, provides many helpful services. He is especially useful if it is your first time at the condo, or in Puerto Morelos. Renting from Derek is painless and really easy. The security deposit is minimal, and ours was refunded within a day of leaving. It is a great location close in , quiet , and very relaxing.
Go and enjoy.
