Recent Akumal reviews
A beautiful spot.
"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"

"La Sirena #13 is great and the view is amazing. The balcony is protected and provides shade all day long, it is also very private. Most days we had the beach in front of the condo to ourselves and it was a nice place to hang out under the palapas. Overall the condo was very attractive, comfortable and had everything we needed. I was a little concerned about being on the 3rd floor as my husband has knee problems and we are in our late 60’s, but it was not a problem. The managers were very quick to have someone carry our luggage up and down for us when we arrived and when we left. Being at the north end of Half Moon Bay without a car was not a problem. Akumal Bay was a little too far for us to walk but with cabs and bike rentals available, it was a breeze. The day after our arrival we wanted to stock up on food and beverages, so we took a cab down to the Super Chomak and back. The cab ride was $7 US each way. After the first day we rented bikes for $5/each US per day and the bikes proved to be a nice way to get around. TV and internet worked well and were a nice plus. Whitney was amazing. Very helpful and friendly, always ready with information and whatever you need to make your stay enjoyable. She goes above and beyond to ensure the comfort of her guests.
Recommendations: Que Onda and La Lunita restaurants are within short walk. Both had good food, good drinks and friendly service. La Buena Vida is always a fun place to hang out. My favorite is breakfast or dinner at Lol Ha restaurant (not the beach bar) in Akumal Bay - upscale casual with good food and good service. I enjoyed sitting on the outside deck at breakfast with a mimosa people watching. Super Chomak has beer & wine as well as staples you might need - eggs, small selection of fresh fruits & vegetables, milk, coffee, some frozen meats, lunchmeat, cheese, bread, juice, etc. To save a little bit of $$$ stick with the Mexican brands as the US brands are very expensive. I forgot about this and we paid as much for a bag of Fritos as we did for a 6 pack of beer. Wednesdays & Saturdays there is a small farmers market behind the taxis @ the Arch. Yal Ku Lagoon is a short bike ride or walk from the condo. It was $14/ea US for the day and you get a bracelet that gives you admission for the entire day. We got there when they opened at 9am and snorkeled for a bit then left and went back twice more during the day."

"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."

"This was an amazing place to stay. We loved the condo, and loved being on half moon bay. We didn't have a car, so the office rented is bicycles for cheap and it was easy to get into Akimal. Loved Akumal! Loved the snorkeling right outside the condo, loved everything about our stay. The neighbors were nice to us and told us the best restaurants and best companies to go through for excursions. This was so much better than doing an all inclusive deal!"
