Recent Akumal reviews

  • Akumal - Casa Palapa Get-a-way

    "Pio, Fernando, and Norma take excellent care of the Casa Palapa and provide terrific guidance on what to do and what not to do. Pio knows this area very well and is very personable and fun to talk with. Residents of Akumal know Pio and even called him for us when we made a visit to Akumal. Fernando and Norma are always smiling and making sure your stay is comfortable. We are able to find the great place to stay and enjoy the Mayan Riviera. Probably the best highlight for our family of 5, all the kids being teenagers, is that we got to enjoy the sea turtles coming to the beach to lay eggs and baby sea turtles hatch and run for the sea. Many critters to enjoy while here: Iguana’s, hermit crabs, sea turtles, and regular crabs. Within 20 minutes of this spot were the Tulum Ruins, Dos Ojos Cenote, Chedraui (store), Akumal, Gas stations, and a golf course. We told Pio our vacation was to just come relax and enjoy the sun and beach, and he let us do, but let me add that Pio offers deep sea fishing, snorkeling, and will help you with anything you want to do. As you follow the directions to Casa Palapa and you stop at Chedraui to stock up, just know that this store will take American money and have the best exchange rates (12.98 P : 1 USD). I am recommending this Casa Palapa to my family and friends. I would give this 4.5 stars but don’t have the option to, so I gave it a 4. I do this because of not being able to turn the lights off on the outside at night."

  • Very nice Condo on Half Moon Bay

    "This is a very nice condo with an unbelievable view of Half Moon Bay. The Condo is very nicely furnished, and has a master bedroom with bath and a second bedroom and bath. There is a large deck on the front of the condo and a deck off of each bedroom overlooking the pool and gardens in back. The kitchen is large and fully equipped. Bottled water is provided. Each bedroom and the living area have its own AC unit that is individually controlled. There is a nice sand "beach” in front with loungers, and palm trees and palapas for shade. The condo is very clean. The beds were comfortable, the linens are nice, and there were plenty of towels, including towels for the beach. There is a nice garden area in back around the pool. The condo has good Wi-Fi. There is a manager on duty from 8 to 8, and daily maid service. The building is located near the north side of the Bay close to the reef. The snorkeling is good with a good variety of fish life. We also saw two eagle rays one morning from the deck feeding in the shallows. It is rocky getting into the ocean. There is a lot of wildlife in the area. We saw agoutis, coati mundis, raccoons, many species of birds, and butterflies. The stairs to the third floor might be difficult for someone with a disability, heart problems, or breathing problems to navigate. Aileen, the owner, is very nice and helpful. She really wants her guests to enjoy their visit. She is available via e-mail to answer any questions before or during your stay. We stopped in Puerto Adventuras on the way from the airport to Akumal to purchase groceries, which saved a lot of money."

    "Stayed in this condo for 3 weeks, and met an American who could not believe it was my first time in Mexico and I had elected to stay on this particular beach. He told me he has been to Mexico a total of 19 times and has now bought property there, and out of all the coastlines he has visited, Pacific and Caribbean side, there is no finer beach anywhere in Mexico for swimming/snorkeling than the beach this condo is situated on. You are so close to EVERYTHING and there are countless places to see and things to do in the IMMEDIATE area. The condo was exceptionally clean when I arrived, the large lanai has the most fantastic view, kitchen is very well equipped. Shopping in the nearby supermarkets is about half the cost of groceries in Alberta, Canada. The unit owners are extremely caring, checked in with me more than once to ensure I was enjoying my stay. Arranged for water to be delivered right to my condo when they found out I didn't have a rental car. The walk to the highway through the Oasis Tulum next door is a beautiful 10 min. walk, and colectivos which stop for you on the highway about every 2 min. will take you to the Chedraui in Puerta Aventuras for $2. (U.S.) - GREAT supermarket - or the town of Akumal where the HUGE sea turtles swim in Akumal Bay for $2.50. You can explore 5th Ave. at night in Playa del Carmen (do your souvenir shopping here! great prices!) by taking the colectivo into town, for $3. And from there, walk 2 blocks and catch a beautiful coachline bus with a/c and a movie playing for $13. and tour Cancun! Highly recommend Xplor if you like ziplining - went on 28 ziplines in one day, some go up to 30 km/hr and are quite high - VERY safe. And highly recommend snorkeling in Hilario's Well in Hidden World's cenote, a quick ride down the highway - an experience you will never forget - $30. for an hr. of snorkeling in a phenomenal uncrowded cenote, including a bat cave. Of all the dolphin swims, Dolphinarius in Puerta Aventuras ranks #1 and you can swim with & feed a manatee family, and get private time with the sea lion and his handler, not to mention the fantastic buffet which is open all day long (barter on the price of the pictures, they will come way down, we started at $79., and ended at $44.) Quite often, there was a school of all kinds of fish numbering 100 - 200 right in FRONT OF THE CONDO in water that was thigh high. You will see the odd stingray in front as well. Beach bar an easy walk too. Felt VERY safe!!!"

  • Deserves the name 'Paradise in Akumal'!

    "First off, we wish we were still there! 10 days in the glorious Mexican sun was not enough! We thoroughly enjoyed our time. We arrived almost a day late due to flight issues and even though we got to La Bahia in the middle of the night we still received a warm welcome from the security guard on duty. I felt very safe with all the security around, which is important for me because we have a two and a four year old. The condo was perfect for us; the kitchen was equipped with all the modern amenities you would desire, the TV was put to use on the one rainy afternoon we encountered, and the bedrooms were spacious, have room to unpack, and the beds are very comfortable. Being right on the beach really made our stay relaxing! We would put the kids to bed and still enjoy the evening outside and have our morning coffee on the patio and watch the kids play in the sand, 5 feet away. The daily cleaning staff were wonderful; dishes done, beds made, garbage taken out and our water was refilled regularly. The beach itself was nice. We enjoyed going for walks around the bay but be careful with all the rocks if you want to go for a swim, water shoes are a must. The area is great, the condo is wonderful and we definitely recommend this if you are looking for a quiet, low key get away! Tim and Raeanne"
