A comfortable, gracious rejuvenating retreat!
This very well built and sturdy Casa met our every need, as did the very friendly and capable staff. Casa del Mar has a charming, and well stocked kitchen with all you need to create a meal or just greet the morning with a cup of Joe. There are ample outdoor spaces to enjoy the Sea breezes and a refreshing pool for cooling off in the heat of the day. The home has a great air flow which helps keep the living areas cool even without the aC, which are there in each bedroom, to cool you while you sleep. The property manager angel, greeted us within hours of arrival and let us know how to reach him should we need anything. Our needs for safe key and cord for charging golf cart were quickly met by he and Carlos, who takes care of the gardens and pool. Carlos was kind enough to wash our rental car and carry massage table out for the masseuse. Mari kept the house immaculate and did some laundry for our group when asked. She usually arrived while we were leaving, but was very friendly and warm. The house has great character in it's furnishings, architecture and artwork, in a sublime way it warms you and makes you feel relaxed. The beds were comfortable and bedding was nice and the right weight for the temperatures. The views from this home are tranquil and the location on the iron shore affords much privacy. Our guard Santos was there to provide added security at night, although I always feel very safe in akumal. We are a short distance to shopping and all of the great places to eat in the area. We ate out quite a bit, but did some shopping at the very convenient grocery store on the highway as well, for quick meals and snacks at the Casa. It's easy to be as active as you wish in this place as there is much to enjoy here or in nearby akumal Bay, Yalku Lagoon, or further south to neighboring bays and Tulum. This was our first time to visit the ruins in Tulum and they surprised us with interest and a wonderful guide. We would gladly stay in this Casa again!

Fabulous sta at Casa del Mar
We had a fabulous stay at Casa Del Mar in Akumal. The house was lovely...spotless and neatly organized. The pool in the front and the beach in the back gives you different options depending upon the sun and wind. The ocean is inaccessible from the house because of the rocks and coral, but a sandy beach is a short walk in either direction. The house is at the tip of the bay so the waves are big. The views are breathtaking from the house but especially the master bedroom on the second floor where we were lolled to sleep every night by the surf. We typically made breakfast and lunch in the kitchen and went out to dinner. We were glad that we had groceries delivered to the house prior to our arrival. There are a couple of smaller stores with limited selection and high prices. The woman who cleans the house will also prepare meals but we had some language gaps communicating with her. She wasn't able to cook on short notice. We wished we had arranged to have her cook 2-3 meals ahead of time. Visit Juan Gonzalez at Buddha Spas for the best massage that I have ever had and Gynnaku Restaurant for lionfish and chips (try to talk personally to her about her business)!

Most relaxing vacation in years."Guest comment entered by manager
Most relaxing vacation in years."
My wife and I recently stayed at Casa del Mar in akumal. On this occasion we traveled with three other people. None of them were experienced travelers. All were a little nervous about what they had seen on the news of traveling to Mexico. Everyone of us had fantastic memorable vacations. Any nerves about traveling to Mexico dissolved after a very short time in Casa del Mar. The staff at Casa del Mar were beyond attentive and helpful. They arranged for a driver for us for an evening Fiesta in Tulum. Fresh bottled water was never short on supply. Every request was met with a smile, and the house was kept in meticulous order inside and out.The gardener even washed our rental car each morning. We cooked at the house about 1/2 of our meals. The kitchen appliances and cookware was easy to find, plentiful and in great shape. The setting in akumal is perfect. Casa del Mar features amazing sunrise views of the back patio, and sunset views from the rooftop viewing deck. The short walk to akumal bay, and Half Moon Bay drew us on nearly a daily basis to snorkel. We saw sea turles at akumal Bay every time we went out. Half Moon Bay had beautiful corals, and fish and the cantina La Buena Vida was an ideal setting to wind up the days during la hora de feliz.For day trips, Akumal, the quiet and secure village is located within a short drive from Playa del Carmen, Tulum, or any number of senotes, theme parks, ruins and golf courses. My wife and I have the good fortune to travel a fair amount. Many of our vacations leave us tired and exhausted, and wishing for more time to recover. Our trip to Casa del Mar in akumal left us relaxed and refreshed. We can not wait to return.

Spectacular vacation at Casa Del MarGuest comment entered by manager
Spectacular vacation at Casa Del Mar
We had the chance to take our first vacation out of the us. We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. We could not have been happier with our choice to stay here. The house gave us that feeling of home away from home with a stunning view of the ocean right outside your window. The home is laid out very well and could easily handle three couples without it feeling cramped or as if you were in each others way. The services provided by the staff were excellent and very accommodating to our request. It was a pleasure to have them come in and did not feel intrusive at all. I cannot say enough about the how if feels to watch the sunrise over the ocean without ever getting out of your pajamas! It would have been more than enough to just stay in the house but the snorkeling there can be addictive and biggest thrill was discovering that the cove just north of the house was usually deserted. There were days when we were the the only people there. It was like living inside a discovery channel show, just awesome and unbelievable all at the same time. I would highly recommend it to all of my friends and we are already planning our return trip for next year.

What an Amazing Little CasaGuest comment entered by manager
What an Amazing Little Casa
This Casa is just perfect. Perfect location and has such a nice feel. The staff is outstanding. The Casa is so beautifully maintained inside and out. The Casa has everything you would ever need and is in perfect walking distance to akumal. There is no beach, but the view is spectacular. Because it is located on a point, there is always such a nice breeze. The pool is located on the road side, which provides privacy. The Casa holds 6 comfortably. I had the most wonderful 11 days and would return to this Casa in a heart beat!!

Fantastic Week in Oceanfront ComfortGuest comment entered by manager
Fantastic Week in Oceanfront Comfort
Our family of five (2 adults and 3 teenagers) loved Casa Del Mar. Perfect, quiet location oceanfront between akumal Bay and Half Moon Bay. We could easily walk to both bays and enjoy white sand beaches, swimming, snorkeling with turtles, deep sea fishing, massage on the beach and good meals and drinks. Or, we could stay at the villa and enjoy a refreshing swimming pool and a scenic rocky beach with beautiful views up and down the coastline. We loved Casa Del Mar and cannot wait to return.

I loved Casa del Mar!Guest comment entered by manager
I loved Casa del Mar!
"Memorable moments with Family and Friends" I loved Casa Del Mar. It had everything we needed and more. Gin and Tonic's in the pool at midnight, playing cards in the living room, cooking some great breakfasts in the kicthen and rested well in the comfortable bedrooms! We came to akumal for a freinds wedding and we had the most amazing time. On arrival to Cancuun aiport rent a car. There are many places to visit so if you like to be independent go for it. Do not exceed the speed limit, you don't want to get caught speeding in Mexico. Make sure you spend a day/night in Cancuun, visit Tulum which is just 15 minutes from akumal (go early - 9 am before the tourist coaches join you). Akumal Beach is only a few mins away from Casa del Mar. Akumal is a family friendly town. So if you have young children its is a very safe place. We loved Casa Del Mar as we were able to relax and really enjoy our family time together. Jose the gardner is lovely, very helpful. Maria the housekeeper is lovely too, although we never asked, we have been told she can cook a really good meal, just give her 1 day notice. Overall we had an incredible time and I am already missing my time there.
