Recent Akumal property reviews

  • DIY Snorkel Holiday

    "My spouse, twelve year old son and I just returned from a week at La Iguana #5 and could not have been happier with our snorkel holiday. The condo is fully equipped as a home away from home. The Mayan art and furniture add a distinct touch to what is a fabulous layout. The condo would be ideal for two couples but could in a pinch sleep six. If you are looking for a relaxed, quiet spot for snorkelling, checking out the local cuisine, and the turtles in Akumal Bay then this is it. Marty recommended a car rental but we opted for a transfer from the airport, a stop for groceries and we were all set. Bike rentals were readily available and this suited our needs for checking out the local area and getting out and about. In the end, we came for the snorkeling just seconds away and were not disappointed. Marty was a consummate host and offered information and was readily available when I had questions. This was an affordable, low season getaway that I can only heartily recommend. Many thanks Marty for a wonderful week!"

  • Wonderful Place!

    "What a gem this condo was for our latest vacation. We stayed 8 nights in this comfortable and clean 2 bd/2bath condo. Everything you need to stay a few days or several weeks is there for your use from water sports equipment, kayaks, BBQ and of course the incredible ocean views-right outside your door. Close to everything there is to do in the Yucatan and Quintana Roo areas from snorkeling, swimming cents, fishing, archeological sites to all the attractions (5 min away). Memo and Marcy were wonderful and friendly hosts and concerned that everything was "just perfect" for us. The condo comes with a daily cleaning service of Suemi and Ismael that extends beyond a "regular service". Whatever you need they were there to help. Renting a car to get around is so much easier and economical than taxi's. Highly recommend the condo for your next stay. We had a wonderful and enjoyable stay…."

  • Wonderful!

    "Our family of 5, 1 yr to 57yrs all loved the Flakes condo. We arrived after dark and meandered the small windy road to the condo. Our first impression in the dark of Akumal was quaint, quiet & wonderful. On the way to the condo we passed a restaurant and people walking around. Felt totally safe to do the same the instant we were unloaded so we walked back to the restaurant and ate outside oceanfront. Cannot remember its name but can't miss it. It was as close to a relaxed feeling one can have after all day travel. We just sat & decompressed and were soooo happy to be there. We missed the grocery stores-saw them but didn't see how to get to them until we passed them so kept driving to Akumal thought we'd figure it out the next morning. Well Joyce who was a gem saved us with a welcome basket of snacks of fruit & coffee & a few other items so no problem. Right across the street was a little tiny establishment where we bought beer. We were set & hit a store the next day. First impression of condo was expressed by my daughter in law but felt by all " I LOVE IT!" As I said Joyce was a gem & made EVERYTHING easy! We had an amazing time. Condo exactly as it looks & CLEAN! Had maid(?) come to just clean floor of sand but she obviously takes pride in her job & kept cleaning till whole thing was good as new! Read complaints about a ruin next door. Evidently it needs torn down but what a shame. We loved it also. Gave us something to dream about. Buying it & refurbishing lol! The reef is rocky but once you pick your way out snorkeling was fun. We didn't see alot of fish but in the bay out front (half moon bay) & the next bay (Akumal bay) we swam with turtles. We snorkeled Yal-Ku lagoon. It would be no problem walking to it but with a one yr old and since we had a car we drove. Saw alot of fish, a jelly fish, barracuda..Sounds like some were unhappy there-not us. Great time! Not much shopping but enough to keep busy half a day maybe. We were only there for three nights two days but they were action packed. Went to Tulum for groceries. Went back the next day & drove the beach road. Shopped & ate on the shore at a very good place. There were lots of restaurants so take your pick. Driving was fine! Not the horror stories of reviews. We ate at 4 restaurants in Akumal. The others were by the arch one to the right one on the beach. 1 across the hiway. Breakfast w/locals! All yummy! Laid back town. Go there to RELAX & EXPLORE safely! Thank you Joyce!"

  • Complete Luxury

    "The house is wonderful, set in a tranquil bay on the beach with your own private area. The house is spacious with a wonderful view of Akumal and the sea. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff that come in each day to look after your every need. They looked after us by cleaning the house and grooming the beach plus we had our very own tour guide from a man that lived in the area. You must read the reviews of the restaurants as we tried a few and a lot of thought has gone into the recommendations. Our kids loved the open water park near by and we loved the quiet!! I would recommend this house which is built from solid wood, marble and natural stone floors to anyone."
