The Best Property in Akumal
"We are one day back stateside from the best family vacation we have every had much having to do with living in ‘Akumal Breakers paradise’ for the past 8 days. My wife and three adult children and their wives and three grandchildren. Absolutely perfect accommodations. The owners couldn't have been more charming and accommodating from our first contact. When we walked in we couldn’t believe the immediate beauty inside and out. We loved the walk-out bedroom on the main level. The outside covered eating area sitting right on the edge of the pool was just beautiful only to be outdone by the luscious palm trees and shrubbery while sitting area ocean side on Adirondack chairs and hammocks and chase lounges. Walking the beach, swimming, building sand castles, snorkeling, and kayaking filled our beautiful sunny days. The beaches and restaurants of Akumal and Tulum were just a short distance either direction from Akumal Breakers. My sons and I had a very fun morning at a spendy but beautiful golf course which was located directly across the highway.
Anything that we had for forgot to bring or merely wished we had was miracusiouly available. It seems there is nothing that they forgot about. We had Hors d'oeuvres and Happy Hour at sunset on the roof each evening. Unbelievablbly spectacular views in every direction.
There are a married couple that live in a separate home at the back of the property that caretake Akumal Breakers. They are the ones who really make it all come together. The place was immaculate when we walked in. Mirna was in everyday when it was convenient for us and the place was immaculate once again. Luis did the same to outside everyday. They cooked for us whenever we asked which included them shopping for the groceries at the store. Every meal was delicious. Then as if that wash;t enough, it turns out they are both licensed masseuses. A massage on the beach was just flat out over the top. Don’t miss it.
If there is a better place than this in Akumal we didn’t see it. We will be back."

"We truly loved our stay in Akumal and at La Bahia. This was my third time to stay at La Bahia (each in a different condo) and by far #2 has the most recent renovations and updated look. As always, the staff was attentive and helpful and the condo well maintained. Akumal and the surrounding area are always a treat and did not disappoint during this trip either. If you have never been I highly recommend checking out Cenote Santa Cruz (just a short, but rough, ride outside of Akumal Pueblo) and touring the Sian Ka'an for some additional fun. Local restaurants in Akumal do not disappoint either and La Buena Vida is always a good time for a drink, food, or both. Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise!"

"Our family of 3 thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo. Pictures and descriptions are accurate. Breanna is great at responding and providing information. Our 6-year old enjoyed all the toys available. The condo is very spacious, quiet and comfortable and had everything we needed. I won't add much to what the other review already mentioned but will add these tips that may be helpful:
-We found having a car to be much more convenient, especially with a young child
-the cave and zip lining at nearby Aktun Chen was fun and very safe for a young child
-the Chedraui supermarket in Tulum (on the Coba road towards Tulum beach) is the best supermarket we found and has most of the main bank ATMs inside (check which one is affiliated with your bank). The Super Chomak market in Akumal has a good Selection too.
-the La Buena Vida beach restaurant in Akumal on way to Yal-ku lagoon is a great place for lunch and dinner-great atmosphere
-pizzara Leo in the village of Chemuyil is great
-we enjoyed our visits to Akumal beach snorkeling for sea turtles, Coba ruins early and rented bikes to climb the pyramid, and a visit to the "cave" snorkeling at Grand Cenote just outside Tulum.
-if time allows make trips to snorkel at national reef park at Puerto Morelos for amazing coral and fish (we used Wetset Diving), chichen itza, and Ik-Kil cenote.
-the wifi connection through Oasis was fast and was $30 for 5 days"

"My third visit to Mexico ... but without a doubt, the best! Casa Cielo is situated in a secure neighborhood within easy commute of Cancun. The house itself is situated just steps from the beach and a refreshing blue pool. The garden offers plenty of privacy and a great mix of sun and shade. It didn't take long for our group to settle in and feel at home. There are plenty of windows throughout and soaring ceilings in the living area which make the space seem larger than the photos online. The furnishings were comfortable and I especially enjoyed the Mexican folk art throughout. We enjoyed several amazing meals prepared by staff there (don't pass up this opportunity), but also took advantage of some wonderful restaurants in nearby Akumal and Tulum. The house and garden were kept clean and well maintained throughout our stay. The owner was incredibly helpful in trip planning as was the house manager that is available once you check in. We were able to plan our own adventures without the nagging sales people you encounter at some of the all inclusive resorts. Upon recommendation, we finally visited Xel-Ha park and also had a wonderful pool side massage at the house. You really can enjoy yourselves without leaving the house. There are kayaks, hammocks, snorkel gear on site. My only complaint is that my schedule didn't allow me to stay longer!"
