Guestbook comments from the manager

This is our 6th trip to akumal, always at Nicte Ha. The location is perfection. Cooled by the Carribean breeze, perched on a coral bluff, pool Oceanside with great outdoor space to soak the sun and relax in bliss. Major upgrades to the property. Mari and Jose take care of everything in the light, security at night. Great food, snorkeling a short walk away, and fantastic ruins, shopping and riviera theme parks a short drive. This place is heaven for those looking to try a different path.

Wonderful Vacation Home! Super spacious for our family of 8!

  • 4 of 5

We were very impressed with this lovely home. It was spacious with plenty of room to move around and even have some privacy if you needed. Loved all the windows providing us with spectacular views and enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets on the top deck. It was in good working condition, very clean and well equipped with all the necessities included-even some games for the kids! The pool provided us with lots of pleasurable moments. The staff were friendly and very accommodating. We appreciated being away from the main beach and all the noise.We loved walking on the rocky shore but the children missed having an actual sandy beach to play on. Other than that it was perfect. Thank-you for providing us with a memorable holiday!

Great vacation!

Lovely, relaxing stay at this home in Akumal. In the middle of a quiet residential town within walking proximity of restaurants and a few shops.

Unforgettable experience at Nicte Ha

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa--from the interior decor to the outdoor swimming pool, this place is a true gem. It has a classic Mexican hacienda vibe, gorgeous painted tiles, and rich, earthy tones. House had everything I needed--an equipped kitchen, wifi, and air conditioning. The staff were superb, as well. We had fresh coconuts from the property several times. The pool was also amazing! House is within walking distance to several bars and restaurants, including La Buena Vida. This house is perfect for a large family vacation. Can't wait to return!

Amazing week at Nicte Ha

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Mexico for 2 weeks at Easter 2016 and our second week was at Nicte Ha. What an amazing week! The villa was perfect and the sea views outstanding. The villa is situated in a perfect spot for the amazing Akumal beaches and also the lovely restaurants along the Akumal stretch. We swam with the turtles every single day which was just fantastic. We also visited various cenotes and Mayan sites.

The staff at the villa and those arranging the stay were superb. I would definitely be more than happy to return to this villa and amazing country!

a little bit of paradise

  • 4 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our stay at Nicte Ha. The decor was beautiful, the ocean views were outstanding, the house was clean and well-stocked. The house felt secluded and quiet, just what we wanted in a vacation. Maria prepared a delicious dinner for us, and the house was always clean. Jose, the gardener, was SUPER! Friendly, helpful and a really nice guy. He rinsed our rental car every day. Having said that, future guests should be aware of a couple of things: (1) although the house description lists a washer and dryer, the laundry room is locked, with a sign that says the housekeeper will do the laundry for a charge. We were disappointed, as we had planned to do laundry our last day (Sunday), which was the maid's day off. Rather misleading in the description. (2) While the house IS beautiful, it is a bit frayed around the edges. Just a few little annoyances with non-working fans, lights, cracked tiles inside and outside. (3) CHECK the HOUSE KEYS before you leave the house locked. Only one key fit the front door, and we could never get the second front door to unlock with EITHER key. (4) I wouldn't bring young children here; the tiles inside and out are extremely slick when wet, and the stairs to the upper rooms are steep and slick as well. (5) On Thursday, we left our beach towels to be washed, but we didn't receive replacements until Saturday afternoon. (6) The wi-fi is not reliable, and is spotty upstairs. Plus, the instructions we were given to log in were not correct. Since we needed to be in touch with family in the States, this was a bit disconcerting. Would we stay here again? Probably. Just be aware of the hiccups.

Owner's Response: Hi Kathryn! Thank you very much for your review, and for the important feedback that you have given. You are right, we do have laundry service at the villa, Mari will do guest laundry for approx US$5 per load for wash, dry, and fold. She is onsite every day from Monday-Saturday. Normally the staff have their day off on Sundays to spend with their families. I double checked our website to make sure that we are advertising laundry as a paid service. We are in the process of changing internet provider to a more reliable one. The internet service here in this area is not perfect and probably not what you are used to at home, however, it should be more than adequate for watching movies and making SKYPE calls etc. We have trialled the new provider in another property and its a much more stable service. As we move into the low season and the villa is not as heavily booked, Nicte Ha will have its annual maintenace which includes painting and repairs. I will discuss your review with our manager and ensure that all of these details are addressed. Thank you so much for staying with us, Kathryn! We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you and your family back to Akumal again soon.
