Recent Akumal reviews

  • A great place to hear the waves roll in.

    "It is a beautiful, well maintained two bedroom condo right on the beach. We listened to the waves at night and watched the sun rise over the ocean in the morning. The apartment was private but also located near lots of resturants and little stores. We snorkled in one of the best lagoons in the area that was only a short walk away. The front bacony gave a marvelous view of the changing sun and clouds lover the water. It was a relaxing and fun spot in the sun. The owner gave great advice about the condo and activities in the area."

  • Our Best Mexico Vacation Yet

    "After travelling to Playa del Carmen 4 times, we decided it was time for a change. Although, we enjoyed Playa, we would catch ourselves wondering if there might be a place that would combine what we love about Mexico (e.g.: clear turquoise water, white sand beaches, delicious Mexican and Mayan food, etc.) without sacrificing peace, natural beauty and authenticity of the destination. In other words, we were getting tired of 5th Ave with its pushy sales people, chain restaurants and most of all crowds and noise that are impossible to avoid in Playa. During one of our trips, we heard Akumal being mentioned as a great snorkeling spot. After doing some research, we thought: “Wow, maybe we finally found the perfect place!” And we were not disappointed, to say the least. Just one hour away from Cancun, Akumal is a hidden gem. Spectacular Half Moon Bay, amazing snorkeling, fascinating wildlife, relaxed friendly atmosphere make this peaceful and secluded destination magical. I could write a lot more about the charm of Akumal but I should get to the main reason for this review. What played the biggest role in turning our vacation into experience of a lifetime was the gorgeous condo that we stayed at. We loved everything about it! Whitney was a pleasure to work with. She made booking process seem easy, responded to all of our questions and even provided Welcome Packet filled with valuable tips and information. On the way to the condo, we stopped by Mega and stocked up on groceries. We cooked dinners in the condo every night and found the kitchen well equipped and even stocked with spices. Upon arrival to La Sirena, we were greeted by a staff member, who showed us to our condo, helped us with luggage and provided helpful information about the area, amenities, appliances, etc. Every day while we were out and about, the maid came by. Once low, drinking water was refilled right away. No matter who we talked to at La Sirena, they were always friendly and happy to help. For lunch, we usually went out. Seafood at La Cueva Del Pescador was amazing. La Buena Vida had a neat location, friendly atmosphere and a good selection of tasty food. Lol-Ha was right on the beach and my favorite spot for margaritas. We also spent a couple of days in Xel-Ha that had great buffets (included in price of admission ticket). For activities, we enjoyed snorkeling at Half Moon Bay, Xel-ha and Yal-ku lagoon. We had unforgettable time and are already counting down days to our next trip!"

  • A little piece of heaven

    "We stayed at Mike and Peggy's condo in Akumal from 12/27/14- 01/03/15. We have rented several times through VRBO and have always had great luck, but Peggy was the most thorough owner we have ever rented through. She provides such wonderful information, we really had a good idea of what we wanted to do and see before we even arrived. The snorkeling off the beach in half moon bay was incredible. My 14 year old son met another 14 year old from Sweden and they spent endless hours snorkeling the reef and playing in the pools. We went to Yal- Ku lagoon too, but we really didn't need to. My 12 year old love "hanging out" on the hammock by the pool. We snorkeled in Akumal Bay and saw numerous sea turtles. That was an amazing experience. The condo was beautiful and clean. There is a TV but only for videos, which was only an issue for my 12 year old who tends to like some down time out of the sun. There are so many great things to do in the area you don't need a TV. The condo is located at the far end of the road which is very bumpy and has lots of Topes (speed bumps) which was a little rough with our rental car but I liked the secluded/private spot. It felt very safe and the property management people and Silvia were extremely helpful and flexible with our schedules. The weather was beautiful and we hope to return to this little piece of heaven."

  • Pure relaxation

    "I had visited the Akumal area quite a few years ago and have always wanted to return to this place of paradise . This was My first time staying at Casa Acacia and the house is located on the best spot at Akumal sur. The bay is protected by a reef and the waters are no deeper than 5 1/2 feet, which provides the most spectacular snorkeling experience I have ever had. Hammocks to relax in and a sea kayak for your enjoyment. We were two couples with more room than we needed. The roof top provided us with wonderful star gazing at night and gorgeous sunrises in the morning. Quite spot to listen to the sea and read a book. The owners of the property are wonderful and easy going, the packet of information they send To find the home is spot on. We rented a car at the airport and drove it was easy. We stopped at the Chedraui in Playa del Carmen on our way for a big grocery shop. Everything you could possible need including beer,wine and liquor. Doris and Abraham the housekeeper and grounds keeper are charming and helpful. Doris will cook for you her chile reños and Flan are delicious. The home is a modest beach house nothing fancy the furniture is a bit tired. There is a downstairs kitchen that is great for keeping snacks and beverage for easy access from the pool and beach. The upstairs kitchen although small is fully stocked for all your cooking needs. Gas range, refrigerator , toaster , blender, etc. Some day I hope to return thank you Pete for sharing this place .
