This was our second visit to Xcalak, so we knew how much we liked the town, the environment, and the restaurants. The first time we wanted to stay at Casa Carolina, but they were already full when we tried to make a reservation, so we stayed at another hotel up the road. Take our word for it, you don't want to have to drive up and down that road all the time. Every time we drove past Casa Carolina, and knew we had another 20 minutes or so to go to our hotel (it seemed like forever), we thought to ourselves, “If we were staying here, we would be home now,” and vowed, “Next time...” Because we knew there would be a next time. So this time we planned a little bit better, and got a reservation at Casa Carolina. It far exceeded our expectations. The grounds were even more beautiful than they looked from the road. It was nice having the hotel building set so far back from the road, and not right on the road. Bob and Caroline were terrific hosts. Breakfast in the palapa was a treat every day. We felt so pampered being picked up right at the dock for fishing and snorkeling trips. Last time the boats wouldn't pick us up so far north. We had to go into town to meet our boat and guide. More time on that road! It was far more relaxing to be picked up at Casa Carolina and brought back there than to have to drive that road before and after an excursion. But what we loved most was our room at Casa Carolina. It was spacious, beautiful, and had everything we needed, without being cluttered. Casa Carolina provided us with so much space to spread out and put our things that we were able to move right in and feel like it was ours. We have found the vacation destination we will return to again and again—it's Xcalak. And we have found the hotel we will return to—it's Casa Carolina.
