"Wow on all levels with this condo! The owner communication, location, calm atmosphere, amenities... and oh my goodness, the view! We had such an amazing time at La Sirena... even though we were unlucky enough to get a bit of weather, it was still such a wonderful vacation. We just tried to imagine that the condo was ours and we'd be able to visit whenever we wanted, to combat the sadness we felt to leave this little slice of amazing! We had tons of TV channels to watch and because of the strong WiFi, we also used Netflix (since it was raining pretty good at times- with lightning! Awesome!). The owner also provides a bunch of DVDs and books for your use. The place was kept beautifully clean during our stay with daily cleaning visits from the lovely people who work there, and a very comfortable bed to sleep in. The A/C worked great in both the main living area as well as the bedroom, when we needed it. After the storm, I noticed that it was actually pretty neat that the north end of Half Moon Bay is a little rocky because all the beautiful beaches south of us were covered with tons of seaweed, so the lounging beach at La Sirena was beautifully clean while others were covered in seaweed, which was nice for our last two days. We went snorkeling, and though the weather kicked up some sand into the water, we still saw tons of fish- Cuddle-fish, Needle-fish, Sergent Majors, Blue Tangs, Bluehead Wrasse, Peacock Flounder, Parrot-fish, Trunk-fish, French Angel fish (some of the biggest I've ever seen!) Squirrel-fish, and a Southern Ray. Wear reef/water shoes, head out to the sand, then put on your mask/snorkel/fins and head towards the dark spots out in the middle of Half Moon Bay. You'll find tons of awesome reef-heads out there. We even saw a big ray in the water, right from the condo deck! The pool was lovely when it didn't look very fun to get into the ocean (rough), and the grounds around the pool are so beautiful and tropical. It's also really nice to have a shaded pool for when it's hot mid-day. The kitchen was very well-appointed, with a nice-sized fridge and we cooked breakfast as well as a few dinners for ourselves. The stove is a little different then in the states... be sure to turn the gas knob, then click the button with a little lightning sign on it for a spark. We enjoyed La Buena Vida for lunch, as well as Que Onda for dinner, and we loved Turtle Bay for our last breakfast in Akumal.
We can't wait to go back!! Just perfect."
