Grandchildren are a blessing!
"Our stay was beyond our expectations! Our adventures included diving and snorkelling with our grandchildren and their parents. The golf cart was a true bonus. The accommodations are remarkable, six people can enjoy a lot of personal space. The pool was a hit!
The view was outstanding, sunrise was beautiful and we saw ocean activity from the pool area (boats and even a whale).
Marie and Luis were outstanding and treated us exceptionally well. Maria prepared a most enjoyable meal, yummy!
Restaurants are within walking distance and we enjoyed BBQing!
Monica (Property Mgr) was available for all questions. She recommended restaurants, stores, transportation etc.
Booking through Kelly was made easy by her willingness to make things right. She provided all the information we would need to have a memorable holiday.
Thank you Solymar, love to return in future."

"The apartment was great, extremely clean, we had all we needed and the staff was very friendly and very helpful. The water system is an excellent feature. The convenient store across from the place was very helpful and the lady neighbor with the eatery is still there. We enjoyed her empanadas for breakfast one day.
Staying in Casita Maria/Akumal was an excellent choice. Staying away from the crowds and the “more commercial” area gave us the vacation feeling we were looking for. We enjoyed seeing the Iguanas, Hermit crabs, turtles nesting at night (twice). This was our first time snorkeling…and what a place to start!!! We were all in awe! We went to Xcacel (Stunning beach), Akumal Bay (twice), Chichen Itza, Rio Secreto and Xel-há. All great places.
We ate at La Buena Vida twice (five minutes walk from the apt, the food was great and our boys asked to go back after the first time); Oscar and Lalo (via Tulum - excellent food and excellent service); my son had what he thought was the best smoothie of his life at Turtle Bay Café and Bakery, and my husband and I had the best dinner at La Lunita (down the road, after Playa Caribe).
Sadly, Half Moon Bay was covered with Sargassum seaweed. Which from what we heard has been impacting all beaches from Cancun down to Tulum. The bay is not very appealing and the smell is very strong so very few people ventured to snorkeling or even swimming there.
Luckily for us, Xcacel and Akumal Bay waters were very clean. And Xel-ha and Rio Secreto had no issues with the seaweed. So, even though we were disappointed at first, our vacation was not greatly impacted by it. We still think those were the greatest beaches we had ever visited."

"La Sirena #13 is great and the view is amazing. The balcony is protected and provides shade all day long, it is also very private. Most days we had the beach in front of the condo to ourselves and it was a nice place to hang out under the palapas. Overall the condo was very attractive, comfortable and had everything we needed. I was a little concerned about being on the 3rd floor as my husband has knee problems and we are in our late 60’s, but it was not a problem. The managers were very quick to have someone carry our luggage up and down for us when we arrived and when we left. Being at the north end of Half Moon Bay without a car was not a problem. Akumal Bay was a little too far for us to walk but with cabs and bike rentals available, it was a breeze. The day after our arrival we wanted to stock up on food and beverages, so we took a cab down to the Super Chomak and back. The cab ride was $7 US each way. After the first day we rented bikes for $5/each US per day and the bikes proved to be a nice way to get around. TV and internet worked well and were a nice plus. Whitney was amazing. Very helpful and friendly, always ready with information and whatever you need to make your stay enjoyable. She goes above and beyond to ensure the comfort of her guests.
Recommendations: Que Onda and La Lunita restaurants are within short walk. Both had good food, good drinks and friendly service. La Buena Vida is always a fun place to hang out. My favorite is breakfast or dinner at Lol Ha restaurant (not the beach bar) in Akumal Bay - upscale casual with good food and good service. I enjoyed sitting on the outside deck at breakfast with a mimosa people watching. Super Chomak has beer & wine as well as staples you might need - eggs, small selection of fresh fruits & vegetables, milk, coffee, some frozen meats, lunchmeat, cheese, bread, juice, etc. To save a little bit of $$$ stick with the Mexican brands as the US brands are very expensive. I forgot about this and we paid as much for a bag of Fritos as we did for a 6 pack of beer. Wednesdays & Saturdays there is a small farmers market behind the taxis @ the Arch. Yal Ku Lagoon is a short bike ride or walk from the condo. It was $14/ea US for the day and you get a bracelet that gives you admission for the entire day. We got there when they opened at 9am and snorkeled for a bit then left and went back twice more during the day."
