"I feel like writing this review for Casa de las Joyas will be a double-edged sword because I'm afraid it's only going to get more popular and therefore less available for me to rent again. That being said, I truly have nothing but great things to say about la Casa de las Joyas in Chan Chemuyil. The owner has gone above and beyond to make the home more than comfortable. The kitchen is a decent size and the coffee maker is functional (which is important for us) - all you need to save some money by cooking for yourself. The 20 liter drum of water was great for us so we didn't have to purchase water. The movie library is extensive and was a treat during the evenings. The accessibility to the beach is PHENOMENAL! We rented bikes for our 10 day stay and didn't need anything else. We strapped the beach chairs (provided by the owner to borrow during your stay) and beach towels to our back and headed to the beach every day. The snorkeling at the local beach is great and perfect for people who aren't super into doing organized tours. All in all, our stay was such a treat, and I'm so grateful we found Casa de las Joyas!"

"This was my 8th visit to PM, 2nd time at Casita Blanca & 1st time in Palma's condo. We loved it! Great views, fantastic kitchen and baths, the place was clean & well stocked with linens. The couple issues we had were quickly addressed by management with fast, attentive assistance from the owner (it was on a Sunday.) I would definitely recommend this condo & owner's attentiveness & responsiveness! Looking forward to next year! Muchas gracias Palma!"

"This was our first Mexican vacation that wasn't in a resort. It was spring break with our 18 year old son, my lovely wife and his brother, whom we kidnapped from Iowa.
Amanecer Akumal proved a delightful, freeing experience for us. It felt not only more authentic but like you were living there for a moment instead of just vacationing.
The unit itself is loaded with Mexican charm: serious dark hard wood doors and accents, amazing tile work, a soaking tub in the master bedroom that's a hot tub sans jets, a well-equipped kitchen and a spacious dining/living room area.
But we especially enjoyed the common areas: a small pool (which has the kind of built-in stools you find in swim-up bars) on a downstairs patio, and a table with chairs on the rooftop patios, where we spent nights drinking Sols, watching the stars and getting to know our fascinating neighbors from Portland, Ore., Nick and Gail.
You don't need to rent a car. You can spend a week walking to Yal-Kul, Half Moon Bay or Akumal Bay (or renting bikes for $8 nearby) for the epic snorkeling. But I'm such an activities director (if it's Wednesday, it Chiichan Itza), a car proved invaluable.
Fernando (our groundskeeper and maintenance
guy) and Martha (our maid) couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.
We may be done with the mega resorts. Better to really feel the experience of Mexico instead of being insulated from it."

"Great place, great views , great location. Only bad thing is the furniture on the terrace is made of plastic piping and is junk. The chairs came apart several times.
Would still highly recommend the place"
