“What a magical place to connect with your family!”
Reviewed 7 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

This property was steps from one of the most beautiful reefs in the world. The caretakers family was lovely, including the two four-legged ones. They were unobtrusive, yet took care of our needs. There were lots of tears upon leaving as we spent 3 weeks at this property. I think our 10 year old spent more time with them than us. This was a great way to reconnect with your family with no distractions. Fantastic snorkeling, diving and fishing at your doorstep. Make sure you plan your meals prior to going and buy more than enough as it is an isolated property, but that is the beauty of it. Road is ruff, but doable. 4 wheel drive would help. Magical!

“In Xcalak, all you reallly need is a house, any house, but this is a good one”
Reviewed 22 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Our family rented the top floor for a week, with my wife's sister and her family joining us the last 5 days on the bottom floor. Perfect in-law situation: room to be together, room to be apart. The house was very clean (at least until the teenagers and two year old got done with it), and well set up with solid kitchen equipment and great relaxation potential on the upstairs balcony.
As everywhere we have been in Xcalak (Reef House and Casa Caracola), the greatest amenity is the sea breeze and the snorkeling outside the house. Here, the upstairs had the better breeze, and we all tended to congregate there (One of the denizens of the downstairs said our terra cotta fish on the wall looked happier - because the trees are dense in front of the house, it is brighter upstairs). Snorkeling here was great, although the water was quite shallow in the areas we tried that are accessible by walking or kayaking from the house (two kayaks, both in great shape). The hosts have left a guide for other nearby snorkeling areas, but no one felt like the drive, and the bikes did not seem particularly roadworthy.
The beach walking was also very good here. Our beach was cleaned every morning by the caretakers, and most beaches to the north as well, such that we could (and did) walk an hour that way along very nice sand strips for the most part. We were there holy week, and there are a number of both developed and undeveloped campsites along the beach there, but never any disruption of our peace and quiet at the house. Lupita, the caretaker's daughter, is a delight, and the two very friendly dogs make you feel right at home.
We were a little apprehensive about the house being on the other side of the road from the beach. However, this far (9km) from town, the road is barely that, and just seems a slightly different part of the beach. Even with a lot of camping and other activity around us, we only noticed a handful of cars per day, and did not even have any incidents with the toddler. So that trepidation was not an issue at all.
The only drawback to the Coral Garden Inn is the distance from town. 20-25 minutes to the dive shop, and restaurants. However, the peace and seclusion make up for that, and we only were in town a couple nights anyway.
Coral Garden Inn is a great option for groups needing a large house. Can't beat the prices, either.

We appreciate the lovely review from you and your family. We are happy that you experienced the beauty and charm of the Coral Garden Inn. It is perfect for a family group, children playing on the beach, adults relaxing, warm tropical breezes and a snorkel here and there. We welcome you back anytime.
