Do I have to leave ?
"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!"

"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"

"Wow, our first impression as we walked into the room was a wall of windows that you could see all of Half Moon Bay! The place was comfortable, nicely decorated. We did not miss the TV- we enjoyed the movies. There was so much to do in the area: swim with the
turtles, cenote Santa Cruz tour, snorkle with fish, happy hour at Buena Vida as we sat on the swings, (watched turtles swim there too) Sian Kian is a must see. Great experience! Thanks Dorien for sharing your paradise."

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."
