Some friends and I stayed at the Casa Roca Caribe before we started travelling around Yucatan in early December and it was just great. A little bit secluded from all the regular tourism, it is a nice spot to relax and start day-trips. Jimbo, the owner, was kind enough to offer us 50 peso rides to whereever we wanted to go which saved us quite some money as all 6 of us fit in his car instead of taking 2 taxis. Around the house are some good places for basic shopping and also breakfast/lunch/dinner, places that recieved the best rating here like the Mango Cafe (50m). In the house we stayed on the upper, so called Jacuzzi level which is freshly renovated and offers a nice Jacizzi for 8-10 people on the balcony overlooking the ocean. It has 2 bedrooms, one master with a nice 32" flat, ocean view and an own bathroom, and another guest bedroom with another bath that we asked to be equipped with 4 single beds . Before we arrived this was our biggest concern, but the space in the room was quite ok and the single bed size larger than usual. The main room contains a large kitchen, a table for 4 and a living room with another TV and access to the balcony. Everything was clean and the kitchen eqipped with some spices and basics left behind by former visitors. This comes in quite handy if you want to cook something. We really enjoyed our stay and Jimbo has been a great host with a bunch of ideas. Thanks.
