Recent Yucatan, Mayan Riviera reviews

  • Akumal February 2015

    "La Bahia is a great building. Service from the property management team was top notch. The unit that we stayed in #3 is quaint. It is a little outdated but living space is comfortable. The bedrooms with their own bathrooms are a nice layout, however the beds are terrible. We were advised several times that the second bedroom could and would be setup with a king size bed (pushing the two singles together, etc) not only was this not done the beds aren't the same height and the mattresses are rock hard and the edges even worse, therefore when pushed together with no bumper or connection piece, makes for a very uncomfortable sleep. The king size bed in the other bedroom at least had a small foam on top but was still very hard and uncomfortable. We cooked during our stay and also had Chef Daveed cook for us (wonderful experience) and we had temperature trouble with the oven. Things took way longer. Also if you are wine drinkers, there was not one wine glass in the cupboards. All things considered, we loved Akumal and La Bahia and would recommend it to all! With new beds or better sleeping conditions we would definitely rent this condo again."

  • One glorious month!

    "We rented this condo for a month to spend Christmas and New Years with our adult children. The condo was extremely comfortable and clean. It is exactly as described, no surprises here! We enjoyed the rooftop palapa where you could see for miles all round. The unit was well appointed and the housekeepers were great and came weekly. Jordi the property manager was very helpful although we rarely required his assistance. The snorkelling was excellent, we pretty much went everyday, even snorkelled down to Chankanaab a few times! The grounds were lovely and the grounds keeper (can't remember his name) worked very hard keeping up with sweeping, cleaning pool and area as well as the beach. He also cut some coconuts from the trees and gave them to us to drink the milk inside! What a treat! It is next door to Playa Uvas Beach Club where you could grab a Marguerita and a bite to eat if you did not feel like cooking! Chankanaab was a short walk south where we spent a day. The Money Bar Restaurant was about a 10 minute walk North where they offered drinks and dining. They would have "Happy Hour" everyday from 5:00 to 7:00 pm offering 2 for 1 drinks! There was a live band on Thursday to Sunday evenings which was very good, lot's if people would be dancing! We highly recommend the rental of this unit and hope to be back again in the future. Thanks again Anis & Stella for allowing us to rent your beautiful condo, it was every thing we hoped it would be!"

  • Tranquil oasis we can't wait to return to

    "Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Gil, the owner was exceptional answering my 20+ questions and the property manager quickly rectified the brief issues we had with hot water heater and master A/C. The top floor condo with rooftop deck is large, clean and neat, and the location excellent. Great kitchen and comfy beds. We had just come from Playacar where we had 30 min walks to the beach. Here, it is a 3 minute walk to the beach and lagoon in front of the Catalonia, open to the public. Witnessed a wedding there one afternoon. We kayaked in the lagoon right out front, water calm enough for our 2 teens to go on their own. Lagoon connects to the aforementioned beach. Spectacular view, amazing sunsets, beautiful pool - the new covered BBQ and dining area is not pictured and is stunning, best outdoor space on the lagoon. Short walk to town, we didn't rent a car, took taxi to big grocery store on highway and hired a fishing boat for 1/2 day. Caught 2 mahi mahi. We also used this condo as base to visit Akumal - we took the collectivo and public bus safely on highway. We hope to return soon! Thank you!!"

  • Just perfect!

    "I rented this house for a quiet get-away with my 80-something mother, my brother and I - who all live in different locations in the US. We had an absolutely magnificent time. The house, beach and town are fabulous. The booking process was very easy, and we were greeted with wonderful hospitality. I cant say enough good things, we would definitely return."

Yucatan, Mayan Riviera Travel Tips

Mayan Resorts Along the Yucatan Peninsula

On your next trip to the Yucatan Peninsula, consider traveling to Mayan resorts. The Mayan Riviera in Mexico is one of the more fascinating destination spots in the world. You have tropical beaches, ancient ruins, and a myriad of marine and wildlife, all steps away from Yucatan vacation rentals. The Mayan Riviera is more than one city; in fact, it is about 11 cities. Popular destinations for Yucatan villas include but are not limited to Playa del Carmen, Playacar, Akumal, Tulum, Puerto Aventuras, Puerto Morelos, and Xpu-Ha.

Forested Scenery near Yucatan Vacation Rentals

As you drive along route 307 to reach Yucatan vacation rentals, you will discover the land is flat and the scenery is akin to a flat forested region much like Canada or Europe. Interspersed along the highway are boulder-laden cliffs that will lead you down to clean, white sandy beaches. Once you arrive at Yucatan villas, you are able to sit on a private beach all day watching the waves roll in or playing in the surf. Playa del Carmen is the most popular Mayan Riviera destination where plenty of Mayan resorts await.

Yucatan Villas by Fifth Avenue

If you elect to stay in Playa del Carmen rather than other Mayan Riviera destinations, you can walk down Fifth Avenue on the local strip and pet wild lions, play with boa constrictors, or watch Maruichi bands. Many of the Yucatan villas are situated on the strip to provide you the most active nightlife and access to the beautiful beach. Cruises dock close to the strip, filling up the town with new faces each Tuesday and Thursday. Because so many cruise ships dock there, you'll find many jewelry stores, arts and crafts stores, and other retail shops that offer wonderful deals.

Mayan Resorts Provide Whale Shark Sightings

Water sports are the most attractive attractions in the Mayan Riviera. From Mayan resorts, you can head out to sea on a deep sea fishing tour or scuba dive boat. If you truly want a diving experience you will never forget, make sure the dive boat is heading to the known locations where the whale sharks hang out. Whale sharks can be very elusive creatures but dive boats in the Mayan Riviera have managed to find areas where they tend to hang out. At the end of your day with water sports, it may be time to head back to your Yucatan vacation rentals for a home-cooked Mexican meal.
