Recent Akumal reviews
Great condo in Akumal
"Our family of 5 had a perfect stay here - the view when you walk in the door is better than the pictures! Staff was very friendly and helpful and the property is in perfect condition and well-managed with full maid service every day. The only thing to note is that you must climb several flights of stairs to get to the unit so it may not be for everyone. Overall a fantastic value and we would return in a heartbeat!"

"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!"

"It is a beautiful, well maintained two bedroom condo right on the beach. We listened to the waves at night and watched the sun rise over the ocean in the morning. The apartment was private but also located near lots of resturants and little stores. We snorkled in one of the best lagoons in the area that was only a short walk away. The front bacony gave a marvelous view of the changing sun and clouds lover the water. It was a relaxing and fun spot in the sun. The owner gave great advice about the condo and activities in the area."

"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."
