Recent Akumal reviews
What a view!
"This place is loved by its owner and you can feel it the minute you get in the condo. The local art makes you feel in Mexico, yet you fell like home. The kids enjoyed the pools while we marvelled at the sunsets. What a view! Being located at the end of Half Moon Bay, there are no seaweeds in front of the condo and that's remarkable for Riviera Maya nowadays. The place is at walking distance from Laguna Yal-Ku, which we enjoyed very much. Hector and Ana took great care of us.
A nice surprise was Akumal itself : it's small, enjoyable, colourful and feels like a community. We even preferred it to Playa or Tulum. The snorkelling right in front of Akumal Beach (5 min ride from the condo) is very enjoyable: we've seen a dozen sea turtles, very big fishes and a couple of stingrays. Kids loved it so much we had to return 3 times during our one-week stay!
Thanks Martin for all your support and great advice. We will remember you and Akumal for a long time!"

"I rarely write reviews, in fact literally never, but this lovely condo on the beach was perfect for us. The condo was comfortable and well equipped and clean. The location is just perfect, less than 1 km from the lovely lagoon, Yal Ku, a short walk to several restaurants on the beach, and far enough away from the main center of Akumal (1 km walk) that it was quiet and untrafficked. There is a lot of seaweed washed up on the beach up and down the coast this year, which you have to walk on/through to get to the water, but that did not deter us! We had rented a car, and there is offstreet parking for La Bahia, so we were able to get around and see Coba and visit the nature park at Aktun Chen for ziplining, cenote swimming and a fantastic cave walk. Aktun Chen is about 10 minutes away from Akumal, and was a ton of fun for 2 moms with 2 teenage daughters! We'll be back!!"

"This was an amazing place to stay. We loved the condo, and loved being on half moon bay. We didn't have a car, so the office rented is bicycles for cheap and it was easy to get into Akimal. Loved Akumal! Loved the snorkeling right outside the condo, loved everything about our stay. The neighbors were nice to us and told us the best restaurants and best companies to go through for excursions. This was so much better than doing an all inclusive deal!"

"Lovely little casita! Tucked away at ground level, no view but steps from the beach. The casita stays surprisingly cool throughout the day with the a/c on at night but off during the day while I was out. Clean and tidy, had everything I needed. Always felt safe and loved all the animals around. Got home one evening to find a coatimundi sitting in the flower bed of the patio, so cute. The beach and water has a lot of sargassum (as does much of the Caribbean these days) but the north end of the bay was clear and great for swimming or snorkeling. I would return to stay here! Loved dinners at La Buena Vida nearby. Great food and drinks!!"
