Perfect Villa, Perfect Vacation!
"Casa del Sol Naciente is everything in it's description and more. Relax by the pool, swim in the Sea or read on a swinging bed in the shade while the sounds of the waves lull you to sleep. The accommodations were wonderful. Everyone had a great room. Lots of space for yourself, with great areas to congregate with the whole group. We cooked several meals in and found the kitchen very well equipped. We enjoyed a welcoming Margarita on arrival our first day. We also enjoyed freshly made Guacamole and Salsa every afternoon! The housekeeper 'Yennie' kept the Villa tidy and made sure we had everything we needed. The grounds were maintained daily, as well, with the pool cleaned and the sand raked of the never-ending leaves from the beautiful landscaping. The Villa is close enough to so much, allowing you to explore the lagoons, Cenotes, towns and restaurants of the area. This was much nicer than staying in a large resort or hotel. It was more like visiting a friend for the week. Thanks Udi and Liz for creating such a wonderful place. It was our best trip ever to the Riviera Maya and one we hope to repeat very soon."

"The house is beautiful and comfortable. We were not prepared for the bedroom layout as the house is designed so that various parts of the house or individual rooms can be rented out. We had the entire house (including Casita) excluding the owner's suite. The Casita was meant for an older couple traveling with us but it was not up to their standards so we didn't end up using it. The main part of the house is great. The two upstairs bedrooms can be locked out of the main house. My children were afraid to sleep upstairs as they felt alone up there. We ended up placing the older couple upstairs. They said they were comfortable. The beach is not suitable for lounging this year as the seaweed is thick. The seaweed is an issue everywhere this year. The water is rocky. If you want a good beach day, you will need to drive or walk up to Akumal Bay by the beach club and dive shop. The entire family enjoyed the house and we would stay there again."

"This is the third time my husband and I have stayed at this property. I can only say that it is wonderful in so many ways. Comments made in other reviews are still true. This visit we did more snorkeling in Half Moon Bay and saw some incredible schools of fish. You can rent snorkeling equipment at the office. You definitely will enjoy your stay here. The office staff speak good English if you need anything. The housekeeping staff clean every day and leave everything spotless. There is a big jug of water to use and it is replenished when needed. We always look forward to our stay here. If you are looking for a place to really relax this is it. Comments made by other reviewers are accurate."

"La Bahia is a great building. Service from the property management team was top notch. The unit that we stayed in #3 is quaint. It is a little outdated but living space is comfortable. The bedrooms with their own bathrooms are a nice layout, however the beds are terrible. We were advised several times that the second bedroom could and would be setup with a king size bed (pushing the two singles together, etc) not only was this not done the beds aren't the same height and the mattresses are rock hard and the edges even worse, therefore when pushed together with no bumper or connection piece, makes for a very uncomfortable sleep. The king size bed in the other bedroom at least had a small foam on top but was still very hard and uncomfortable. We cooked during our stay and also had Chef Daveed cook for us (wonderful experience) and we had temperature trouble with the oven. Things took way longer. Also if you are wine drinkers, there was not one wine glass in the cupboards. All things considered, we loved Akumal and La Bahia and would recommend it to all! With new beds or better sleeping conditions we would definitely rent this condo again."
