About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

We fell in love with Akumal, known as the place of the turtles, and so will you. Away from the hustle and bustle of Cancun, you can walk 40 steps to the turquoise Caribbean to our private beach and snorkel with sea turtles in warm Half Moon Bay. Renowned Yal Ku Lagoon, which is sometimes called an outdoor aquarium, is within walking distance. PADI certified dive shops are located on both Half Moon and Akumal Bay. We even have a shaded pool overlooking the beach and bay for those really hot days, as well as the complex's large family pool.

Our spacious, thoughtfully appointed 1600 square foot condo is located in a peaceful lush garden setting. Each bedroom features a king size bed and the second bedroom has an additional twin, making us an ideal place for your family or to share with another couple. The condo offers daily maid service (including the dishes!), soaps, linens and towels along with hair dryers. Bottled water is provided in our fully equipped kitchen. The dining area seats six, plus three breakfast bar seats. WIFI is available, although it can occasionally be sketchy. The condo also offers a TV monitor for streaming and DVD use.

Akumal has many fine restaurants. The ambiance is warm and very casual everywhere. You can walk the beach to a few of the restaurants and curl your toes in the sand as you sip your margarita and enjoy the wonderful seafood or steak. American and continental cuisines are featured along with Mexican fare.

Akumal is centrally located for many nearby excursions. The Mayan ruins at Tulum, the only archeological site right on the Caribbean Sea is 15 miles away. Coba, another Mayan site is just west of Tulum. Puerto Aventuras offers a nine hole golf course or travel a little farther up the road to Xcaret. Playacar lies just to the north of Xcaret and features a fine 18 hole golf course. Bahia Principe lies minutes south of Akumal, near the quaint town of Chemuyl, and offers a wonderful golf course as well. Playa del Carmen offers the vibrancy of city life with its shopping along Fifth Avenue and you can take the ferry to Cozumel from there. There are too many other fun activities to do in the area to list here.

Throughly enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

Property was beautiful with the sound of the waves and cool breeze coming in through our bedroom windows. Away from hustle and bustle. Well kept up with close proximity to snorkelling. Huge space, well equipped kitchen, nice patio to have out meals on facing tropical garden.

The only issue was wifi and no tv but I am sure if I pressed harder it could have been solved.

A great vacation, we would go again and next time bring the kids.

Nice clean, comfortable stay

  • 4 of 5

Quiet location with well setup 2 bedroom condo. Nice staff and close enough to food and groceries. No beach to speak of, typical slightly rocky bay but easily accessible with water shoes and better for snorkeling than a sandy beach. Great snorkeling in the lagoon 5 minute walk away. Only negative is wi-fi was down, although this was really nice at times too!

Lovely condo

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in las iguanas for 9 nights in July. The condo itself is lovely and the perfect size for a small family (I stayed with my two children). The whole booking process was very easy and Deb was extremely helpful answering any questions I had. The condo is in a quiet spot about 2 km out of akumal but only takes 20 minutes to walk in and there are a few restaurants etc nearby as well as a local shop. There is a private little beach to sunbathe overlooking the ocean and two pools perfect to dip in when the sun gets too hot!! All in all great place and I would definitely come back 😊

10 Days in Paradise (La Iguana 14)

  • 5 of 5

This place is very nice and the location is perfect. Nice quiet location away from all of the typical tourist commotion. Very clean. Highly recommended!! Stayed here 10 days and would love to stay longer. We'll more than likely book again with our family. Thank you for sharing your beautiful vacation home with us.

Beautiful Condo in Akumal Bay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I absolutely loved this condo, everything from the location of it down to the smaller details were perfect. Deb (the owner) did an exemplary job of staying in contact with us regarding any issues we had and answering all our questions, and was very thoughtful to ensure things like extra snorkels/fins and coffee were available for us upon our arrival. Things we particularly loved about this condo were the pool, the condo's furniture, it's location in Akumal Bay (close to Yal Ku Lagoon and 2 out of the 3 restaurants within the residential area), and the resident Iguana by the main pool (who my daughter affectionately named "Big Daddy"). We would love to return to this condo in the future and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this place. It was very comfortable, clean, and well-maintained by very helpful and friendly staff. The condo complex itself is in a great location on the north end of Half Moon Bay. We liked this bay much better than Akumal Bay as it was much quieter and less crowded, and we thought the snorkeling here was better too. We had our own masks and snorkels, and there were about 10 pairs of fins in the condo (along with a few random masks and snorkels). We would definitely stay here again.
