Great location for a family vacation
"Great staff, owners too were very helpful. Despite the sea weed, we enjoyed snorkeling and kayaking right off the “backyard” beach. Great fishing in Akumal, we caught so much we took some home."

"Our family of 5 had a perfect stay here - the view when you walk in the door is better than the pictures! Staff was very friendly and helpful and the property is in perfect condition and well-managed with full maid service every day. The only thing to note is that you must climb several flights of stairs to get to the unit so it may not be for everyone. Overall a fantastic value and we would return in a heartbeat!"

"Fun and relaxation again invited me back to Casa Palapa for another escape to a true beach house. Away from the old rat race with its distraction and stress. The day I arrived a sea turtle had laid eggs outside the few steps to the Caribbean sea. Casa Palapa is a true gem. I loved getting away from it all to relax, walk the beach, swim, snorkel and dive, deep sea fish, kayaking, and yes, leave Casa Palapa to involve myself with local attractions. The Tulum Mayan ruins suggested a beachside resort in its day. I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere in the local town too. To the north in Playa Del Carmen, I traveled by ferry to Cozumel. I discovered fantastic drift dives with its vast and friendly marine life. If not living under water, the topside was enjoyable as well. Getting back to Casa Palapa, I cannot speak enough of the venue. My first fishing trip hooked a white marlin, though ended with a premature release. The marlin broke the surface just like television! The second fishing trip landed a four foot dolphin, Dorado, or Mahi…whatever you want to call it. It was delicious. The last trip caught a fat three foot barracuda and another Mahi. After nineteen days, it was tough to say adios to Casa Palapa, Peo the Casa Palapa manager, Norma and Ricardo the helpful house staff. Norma is such a sweet lady each and every time. The next visit will make twelve….I cannot wait to return."

"Our family of 6 adults just had a wonderful week in beautiful Akumal. Our stay at Mi Casa Del Mar was amazing and we did not want to leave! Staying at the condo vs staying at a resort made it special. We were able to cook, travel about and really feel safe at home here. Plenty of everything a family would need is in the condo from beach chairs to snorkel gear and tubes for the beach. Travel guides, books, movies..Wow... we were impressed. Maria, Eppy and Jorge were fantastic and so attentive. We had a problem with our car rental and Eppy went with my husband to the service station!Had a great time going to the lagoon down the street, swam with the turtles and went on a whale shark excursion from Akumal dive center.. Highly recommend and ask for Marco to be your tour guide. Toured Tulum and visited the Cenotes, and went sport-fishing catching our own dinner.Just an amazing adventure. Our family is excited to return to this beautiful area and Mi Casa Del Mar!"
