Recent Akumal reviews

  • Enjoy the Best Value in Akumal

    "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."

  • Affordable, Safe, Clean, Great Management, and EXCELENT pre trip communication.

    "Can't say enough positive about this Casita. I actually think the description is humble. The location is perfect. Management was great as was the security. The owner had great communication prior to the trip which made for stress free travel. I look forward to staying here again. I have traveled to this area over 70 times and can say with confidence a better deal can not be found in Akumal."

  • A little slice of heaven

    "We had a lovely week both weather wise and activity wise. Had a chance to fish on a small Panga from the down town fleet. Caught a couple sizable Dorado and your Master Chef cooked them up Veracruz style. Really great. Went to Aktun Chen for a neat tour of the Akumal caves and Cenote as well as Ya Kul for some great snorkeling in that bay. So thank you for building such a great place. The staff were great and the location excellent."

  • Do yourself a favor and stay here

    "I travel extensively, and have stayed in VRBO homes in many locations. This one was hard to beat. My wife and three of our children stayed here for 5 days in April. From the moment you walk through the front door, you are treated to an extraordinary view of lovely pool, framed by the beautiful Caribbean Sea perhaps 10 seconds walk from your sliding doors. We ate our meals (several prepared by the house manager Guille- a reason to visit in her own right) on the perfect table next to the pool and looking out at the Carribean. The pool and sitting area were shaded, which was perfect given the strength of the sun. We could snorkel from shore, and while not phenomenal, we did see a Manta Ray, some small fish, and nice coral formations. There were two kayaks at our disposal as well. One of the things we liked the most was the number of lovely locations to sit (or lay down) to take advantage of the view. We could hang by the pool, or outside our bedroom on the deck, or travel upstairs to the roof. There were three nice bedrooms with king, king and queen beds, and three futon couches that folded down to sleep a couple more in each, if needed. The kitchen was well equipped. Furnishings were comfortable, not extravagant, and perfect for a beach house. Wifi worked great, as did the sat tv, though we didn't use it. Perfect location 5 minutes from Akumal Bay, 10 minutes from Tulum, near all the X- parks, and an hour from Coba ruins, which we really enjoyed. I've stayed in some beautiful homes in St. John, the Bahamas, Bermuda, Cozumel, and the intimate view of this home was beyond compare. The owner Verna, was friendly and helpful, putting a cherry on our vacation sundae."
