  • 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!"

    "We stayed at Aileen and Mark’s condo for 8 nights in early May, 2015. At this time of year there was enough activity in Akumal Playa to appreciate the small resort town with restaurants and beach activities but quiet enough to be a relaxing, slow-paced vacation. The condo terrace off the Living Area must have the best view of Half Moon Bay in all of North Akumal. Pelicans fly by at the same height as the deck. In addition, there were terraces off each of the bedrooms overlooking the beautiful garden and pool. The owners have provided all kitchen needs and appliances, as well as snorkeling equipment and comfortable beds and furniture. We had maid service every day. The supervising staff was very helpful and spoke English. We were able to get phone calls from the U.S., as well as wi-fi and TV. We were amused that we were watching Canadian satellite TV in Mexico. Akumal is well situated to visit other towns and activities. We had rented a car in Cancun and we drove to Playa del Carmen for groceries and a bank. Akumal has a couple grocery options but not a lot of variety. Akumal does not have a bank. The Centro Maya mall in Playa has a large, extensive supermarket, Soriano, as well as a bank, and it is located at the south end of town. We visited Tulum for Mayan ruins. There are many ‘adventure’ spots close to Akumal but we found we were very content to stay close to La Sirena, where we could swim in the pool or ocean, snorkel, or relax at the palapas. There are 3 restaurants close to the condo: Que Onda, La Lunita and La Buena Vida. Each had its own atmosphere and menu. We thought we would eat more meals at the condo but the restaurants were so good! We enjoyed walking to places for all our needs, including a tiny market for beer, etc. A wonderful snorkeling spot, Yal-Ku, is about two blocks distance at the end of the road. There is a fee to go in and the gardens have amazing bronze sculptures. Words of caution: Akumal is basically a cash society, credit cards don’t seem to be accepted. There are two ATMs in Akumal Playa but they were not working the day we wanted money. It was in the 90s and windy when we were there but the water and breezes made it easy to get cooler. The owner, Aileen, was a joy to do business with. She gave us helpful information before our visit and the condo met all our needs and more. This will not be the only time we stay at Akumal."

  • Akumal February 2015

    "La Bahia is a great building. Service from the property management team was top notch. The unit that we stayed in #3 is quaint. It is a little outdated but living space is comfortable. The bedrooms with their own bathrooms are a nice layout, however the beds are terrible. We were advised several times that the second bedroom could and would be setup with a king size bed (pushing the two singles together, etc) not only was this not done the beds aren't the same height and the mattresses are rock hard and the edges even worse, therefore when pushed together with no bumper or connection piece, makes for a very uncomfortable sleep. The king size bed in the other bedroom at least had a small foam on top but was still very hard and uncomfortable. We cooked during our stay and also had Chef Daveed cook for us (wonderful experience) and we had temperature trouble with the oven. Things took way longer. Also if you are wine drinkers, there was not one wine glass in the cupboards. All things considered, we loved Akumal and La Bahia and would recommend it to all! With new beds or better sleeping conditions we would definitely rent this condo again."

  • Our new favorite place

    "My family and I stayed in unit #3 over the Easter holiday and we still talk about the wonderful time spent there. The condo is well furnished and is so convenient in many ways. One, you can drink the tap water without trepidation, two you are located on the ground floor aka pool level so there are no additional steps to walk up or down, three the reef off the beach is some of the best snorkeling you will find in the Caribbean, four you are in walking distance to two of the better restaurants in Akumal and five you can pedal your rental bikes into the village in a few minutes; we had so much fun using the flashlight as our headlight on our return to the condo each night!!! Ever run out of beer or tequila ? No problem here, the market is a 1 minute walk down the street. Our host, Joyce was very quick in communicating and gives you a very helpful cheat sheet package before arrival. The Augustin and his staff could not be any nicer and Hilda kept our place spotless daily. Don't forget to bring water shoes if you plan on going in the water since its very rocky and some are sharp. Thanks again Joyce."
