  • Enjoy the Best Value in Akumal

    "This was our first Mexican vacation that wasn't in a resort. It was spring break with our 18 year old son, my lovely wife and his brother, whom we kidnapped from Iowa. Amanecer Akumal proved a delightful, freeing experience for us. It felt not only more authentic but like you were living there for a moment instead of just vacationing. The unit itself is loaded with Mexican charm: serious dark hard wood doors and accents, amazing tile work, a soaking tub in the master bedroom that's a hot tub sans jets, a well-equipped kitchen and a spacious dining/living room area. But we especially enjoyed the common areas: a small pool (which has the kind of built-in stools you find in swim-up bars) on a downstairs patio, and a table with chairs on the rooftop patios, where we spent nights drinking Sols, watching the stars and getting to know our fascinating neighbors from Portland, Ore., Nick and Gail. You don't need to rent a car. You can spend a week walking to Yal-Kul, Half Moon Bay or Akumal Bay (or renting bikes for $8 nearby) for the epic snorkeling. But I'm such an activities director (if it's Wednesday, it Chiichan Itza), a car proved invaluable. Fernando (our groundskeeper and maintenance guy) and Martha (our maid) couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. We may be done with the mega resorts. Better to really feel the experience of Mexico instead of being insulated from it."

  • Perfect!

    "My family has been visiting Akumal for a few years, but this was the first time that we rented from Kassie. The location is perfect, and the unit is lovely. The staff were accommodating, friendly and helpful. The only issue that we had is the unusual amount of seaweed that is being washed onto the beach this year, which makes getting in and out of the sea a little more difficult than usual but that is hardly something that can be helped. Also, thanks to Kassie's recommendation, we visited Coba this year, which is far far nicer and less crowded than the ruins at Tulum. Thank you Kassie for a wonderful stay!"

  • Best vacation spot ever

    "My husband and our two best friends stayed in Joyce's place for a pre-holiday vacation and absolutely fell in love. We all quite literally gasped when we walked in on the first day, the view is so spectacular. The apartment is open and airy and was a wonderful place to spend a week. We had many adventures including a trip to Chichen Itza, snorkeling in a cenote and dinner in a cenote restaurant in Playa del Carmen but we all agreed that our favorite activity was just spending time on the beach and in the pool. We went snorkeling every day in Half Moon Bay and got to see lots of sea turtles. Our favorite thing to do was to go and enjoy lunch, dinner or drinks at the Buena Vida restaurant just down the beach. It was a charming place with great service and really excellent food and drinks. The people who worked at Playa Caribe were also wonderful and helped us out whenever we needed it. My husband and I almost never go back to the same place twice because we love to explore new places but we can't wait to return to Playa Caribe!"

  • A little piece of heaven

    "We stayed at Mike and Peggy's condo in Akumal from 12/27/14- 01/03/15. We have rented several times through VRBO and have always had great luck, but Peggy was the most thorough owner we have ever rented through. She provides such wonderful information, we really had a good idea of what we wanted to do and see before we even arrived. The snorkeling off the beach in half moon bay was incredible. My 14 year old son met another 14 year old from Sweden and they spent endless hours snorkeling the reef and playing in the pools. We went to Yal- Ku lagoon too, but we really didn't need to. My 12 year old love "hanging out" on the hammock by the pool. We snorkeled in Akumal Bay and saw numerous sea turtles. That was an amazing experience. The condo was beautiful and clean. There is a TV but only for videos, which was only an issue for my 12 year old who tends to like some down time out of the sun. There are so many great things to do in the area you don't need a TV. The condo is located at the far end of the road which is very bumpy and has lots of Topes (speed bumps) which was a little rough with our rental car but I liked the secluded/private spot. It felt very safe and the property management people and Silvia were extremely helpful and flexible with our schedules. The weather was beautiful and we hope to return to this little piece of heaven."
