Recent Akumal reviews

  • What an amazing property, location, and staff...best all around trip we've ever had!

    "We highly recommend a stay in Akumal at Casa Kukulcan under the ownership of Mike McGetrick… one of the best vacations we’ve ever had! Mike’s design of Casa Kukulcan teases out Mayan architecture into a contemporary building including a pyramid front and an entry reflective of a Mayan purification tunnel. ‘Purified’ is how you feel as you walk in the entry that produces a gorgeous home of tile floors, dark wood accents, and a full two-story glass visual out the back at the lap pool and ocean beyond, framed in by palm trees. Our extended family of 12 ranged from 8 to 81 and the house easily accommodated needs for all. The large kitchen and professional surfaces allowed for food prep plus hanging out space and the two dining table options easily sat us all. Large air conditioned bedrooms with individual temperature controls, and comfortable beds and pillows, provided your choice of sleeping arrangements. My wife and I chose to sleep in the master suite with all doors and windows open to allow the warm breezes to pass over us. We fell asleep listening to the surf (bugs not a problem) and awoke to the songs of the melodious blackbird and kiskadee. The sunrise was also available from our master suite bed or from the chairs on the veranda …with a full cup of a Mexican mocha in hand, it was indeed perfection! Casa Kukulcan offers so much that if we did nothing else during our stay, we could fully enjoy the property, swim in the pool, or snorkel in the ocean beyond. We did that a number of days including our first full day so we could rest from travel and fully absorb our luxurious spot. We drove a few mornings into Akumal beach (just around the back of the Akumal Dive Shop at 8am) to snorkel with an assortment of sea turtles and stingrays as they grazed on the sea grass. We visited Mayan ruins as well, but a highlight of our stay was a private tour by the owner of the Santa Cruz Cenote. Carlos was very helpful and made the arrangements, but I would advise making them well in advance. The owner knows his cave and cenote well, speaks great English, and is clear about his desire to protect it while also sharing this remarkable little piece of earth with others. Thank you Mike and staff for providing the back-drop to a magical vacation! The Vickland and Wilson Families"

  • 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"

  • TROPICAL PARADISE

    "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."

  • Perfect Beach Vacation

    "If you're planning to vacation in this part of the world, you can't possibly do better than Seascape condo in Akumal. This condo is, hands down, the best in the area in terms of location and amenities. As independent word travelers who cringe at the idea of being confined to a resort or cruise ship, we knew we wanted a rental for this trip and were fortunate to find exactly what we were looking for with Seascape. Seascape's location in Akumal simply can't be beat. The beach side of Akumal is basically a long stretch of road that hugs the ocean, bordered by the public Akumal Bay Beach at one end and Half-Moon Bay at the other. In between, it's populated by condos, homes and small restaurants and shops, while Akumal Pueblo (across the freeway) is more of a working town. Seascape is located in a wonderful complex, La Sirena, on Half-Moon Bay, practically at the end of the beach road. We found this ideal; very quiet but within walking distance to whatever we needed. The condo itself is beautiful and truly had everything we could possibly want or need. We enjoy cooking and the kitchen had everything to hand. The bed was comfortable, shower just right, as was the TV, DVD player, internet and stereo. We utilized open windows for the marvelous sea breezes whenever possible. Out the back door was Half-Moon Bay with fine snorkeling, swimming and lounging and out the front door was the pool set in the gorgeous gardens, always clean and inviting. The property is immaculately maintained and residents and staff alike were very friendly and helpful. Yal-Ku Lagoon, for excellent snorkeling, is just a 5 minute walk down the road, and although we had a car, once we got to Seascape we basically parked it except for grocery shopping. Although a car is recommended, you could definitely do without one if you're in decent shape and walk or bike. We had no trouble walking to all the local dining options from the condo. For excursions outside of Akumal, you can always hire transportation. We managed to plug in our major Yucatan sightseeing on either end of our condo rental rental week, which left us with the week we spent at Seascape free for soaking up the sunshine, snorkeling, swimming and simply relaxing. We'd begin our days with ocean-side coffee in the lounge chairs and end them in the same place, accompanied by the sounds of the waves and the stars overhead. This was a most relaxing vacation for us and we certainly hope to return some day!"
