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!"

"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!"

"Our stay at this condo in Akumal was really great. Our group had a good time in spite of the untimely arrival of the seaweed. The beaches were beautiful. The condo worked perfectly for our 2 families. It was very clean, super tropical comfortable and the views were picturesque. The maid service was excellent also. The lagoon was our favorite. If you go, rent palapa #1. It has it's own private entrance to water and very roomy. The town is super cool. It felt like a little village, loved it. All the food we had was fantastic from tons of mexican, homemade pasta, and scrumptious pizza. We had Chef Daveed come cook one dinner. It was spectacular. We loved all the dishes and salsas.
The owners were great. My oldest was in Europe while we were in Akumal. I was worried about being able to be contacted for emergencies. She offered up her cell phone number for me to give out for emergencies. That way she could be contacted and get information to me. There is WiFi in house. It helped also.
Highly recommend going to Akumal Bay early in the morning (6am) to snorkel with turtles. You have to get there before other swimmers and boats. It was phenomenal. Then head over to Turtle Bay Cafe and grab some sticky buns and breakfast before they sell out. 8 am is too late! 😉
Snorkeling was great in Half Moon Bay . You need to swim out to reef. Saw some gorgeous fish, brilliant colors, octopus, etc.
Overall a great trip!"

"We were a group of two couples. The accommodations were perfect. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need and the pots, pans, dishes, serving pieces matched and were like new. Each bedroom had a private balcony, plenty of storage and a very nice bathroom. The on-site pool was wonderful as were the beach palapas, plenty of lounge chairs and tables with umbrellas and chairs. Patty was friendly and did a great job of keeping our place clean and tidy. the onsite manager was pleasant and very helpful. As we got ready to leave we unanimously agreed that on our next trip we will stay here again. It was simply wonderful. The pictures are as accurate as you can get but I would say the place was better in person. Great views and of course you can hear the ocean at all times."
