  • Great 2 weeks at Casa Langan

    "We rented this villa with our two very young kids and their grandparents. The house is at the end of a community south of akumal. There is a 24 hour security gate to get in. The beach is cleaned daily by 3 hardworking guys, removing seaweed and anything else that washes up. This villa was taken care of by a very nice couple that lived in the small casita on the road side of the house. The husband cleaned the patio and beach as well as the pool every morning, then they would both spend a few hours making the house spotless each day. There is another woman that speaks excellent english that makes sure you have everything you need, and can arrange taxis, and prepared dinners by the staff. Their cooking was excellent! the beach is great, but the coral starts when the water is knee high, so swimming is a bit challenging. Snorkelling off the beach was ok, but for the best go to the Yal Ku Lagoon closer to Akumal. Its a 30-40 minute walk to the town of akumal along the "beach" where there are a few restaurants and dive shops. During the day it is fine, but because there are rocky sections between the bay we didn't try walking to and frmo a restaurant at night. Cabs were really expensive for the 5 minute trip to Akumal ($15USD) but could have been negotiated I'm sure. We made use of the owner's contact for van service to and from the airport, which was excellent, and highly recommended. Did I mention the staff will even wash, dry and fold your laundry when needed!the house is ~12 years old and shows its age in some ways, but not in a way that lessened our experience. Overall we would recommend this place to anyone! Thank you to the owners"

  • Goodbye resorts. We found a new home.

    "What an amazing experience this was for my small family of 5. We truly enjoyed every minute we spent in this place we refer to as "paradise". Since we've been back, our kids regularly say "Dad, when are we going back home". We didn't think we were going to be able to make it back this year, but after 5 months away, our plans suddenly changed. We are full steam ahead in our plans to return...this time with more family. Really. If you have never tried a condo and are looking for a place....look no further. I will never return to an all inclusive again. I can honestly say that. from the pool to the ocean is a mere 5-10 yards. Yes you read right and no...that is not an exaggeration. Unbelievable views from the balcony, the pool, the palapas, the BBQ and anywhere else on Half Moon Bay. I wish these words could describe it the way it really is, but this is one of those things that you just have to see for yourself. The Room was immaculate when we arrived and stayed immaculate throughout our stay thanks to the excellent staff at Lol Ka'naab. A beautifully decorated 2 bedroom/2bath. The bedrooms kept the rooms perfect at night and the living room if welcomed to a perfect breeze all day long...even in June. The balcony just screams for a cerveza the second you go out there...I prefer Sol... : ) The grounds were regularly maintained and the Property Manager "Elio" is one of the best people you'll meet. Extremely helpful, knowledgeable and frienly. After numerous times of coming to Playa and being afraid to drive...and paying riduculous amounts of money for taxis, shuttles etc...he was able to talk me into renting a car and realizing that there was really nothing to fear. The best advice I ever received. I will never pay for a taxi again in the Mexican Riviera. The condo is located in the center of Beautiful Half Moon Bay. Walking distance to the famous "La Buena Vida" Restaurant. Amazing location, food and atmosphere. A short drive, bike ride or walk to Akumal Bay to snorkle with the giant turtles. Or you can simply walk 10 yards toward the ocean and snorkle from there. We saw countless species of fish in various sizes, turtles, stingrays, sea urchins & so much more to mention. I could go on and on. Rent a car & drive less than 30 minutes to Tulum, Playa Del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras, Endless Cenotes, Xel Ha, Xcaret, XPLOR and much more. This is truly the best location in the area. You gotta be there to truly experience its beauty."

  • Perfect family condo

    "We looooved our stay at this condo in Akumal. Our highlight _by far_ was seeing turtles hatch on the sand right in front of the condo. The owner was staying in town and she thankfully called our attention to the turtles hatching one morning. We stayed in late June/early July and there was turtle activity on the beach every night. We liked the location with sandy beach and proximity to restaurants. We enjoyed having the choice of beach or pool for swimming. We would highly recommend this condo. The owner and property manager were both helpful and easy to work with."

  • 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."
