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."

"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!"

"I have to say this was one of the best vacations I have ever had! The home is beautiful, spacious and comfortable. Of course the minute you step out on the back porch, you never want to leave! Beautiful pool, beautiful beach, and beautiful surroundings! Akumal is quaint and charming, the food is fabulous! The day after we got to Villa de la Playa we were talking about when we all can come back, we all are in luv with the place!

"Myself, my husband and our 2 Chihuahuas just spent 7 days here. It really is a beautiful spot in a great location for peace and quiet. we had a ground floor beach front 1 bedroom unit and it was great. We met lots of people from all over the place. It's off the beaten path but only minutes from the local collectivo. My only complaint is the bed needs upgrading as our back were sore after a coupe of nights and the kitchen appliances could use some upgrading. Minor stuff really. Oh and the roof top restaurant is not there. However they still have very good, reasonably priced food and a fun little swing bar steps away. We would definitely go back"
