Sweet condo in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 days and we were out mostly but the Casita was just what we needed. It is cleaned really well every day. The beds are very comfortable. The air-conditioning works well. The watery is purified from a tank so we could drink it. The kitchen had what we needed and more although a kettle would have been ideal. The location is amazing, near some excellent restaurants and walking distance from Akumal Bay. The beach in front of the condos is fantastic and is about 30 steps from the Casita. There was some sargassum coming in but cleaned regularly so did not present a problem. The condo property is very well maintained - the staff clean everything constantly. It is very secure and the security staff are friendly and helpful. Agustin, the office manager, is great and will assist with tours etc. Great for kids. We would highly recommend to anyone looking for accommodation and who doesn't expect high end luxury.

Owner's Response: We couldn't have said it better. Great description of Casita Maria. My husband and daughter are going down there in a couple of weeks and will be sure to bring a kettle. Great idea! Thanks and so glad you enjoyed your stay! Best, Polly

Can't beat the location for the price!

  • 4 of 5

We spent our 20th anniversary at Casita Maria and had a fabulous time. Just 30 steps from the pool overlooking the beach, it was a quiet and beautiful place to spend a romantic week. While the beach wasn't really swimable because of huge amounts of seaweed (maybe seasonal?), we really enjoyed spending time in the pool, looking out at the beautiful ocean view, and sipping on margaritas. The town of Akumal is our favorite place in the Yucatan, and every restaurant we ate at was absolutely delicious. Favorites were La Buena Vida on the beach and the little Akumal Loncheria right in town (order the pollo a la Yucateca and you won't be disappointed.)

The snorkeling is the real treat around here. Make sure you get to spend a day at Yal Ku. Best $14 we spent all week. Akumal bay is fantastic snorkeling, but is sometimes difficult to do on your own, because of all of the commercial activity and the guys pretending they're in charge, but really they just want you to hire them as guides.

The room was decent, but for the price it was fantastic. It's no 5 star hotel, but it was clean and the beds were a solid 7/10. If you're looking for a luxury room, this isn't it, but if you're looking for a nice place to sleep at the end of a day of snorkeling and eating great food, this is the place for you.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a good time in Akumal! You pretty much summed up how we feel about Casita Maria, too. Clean, cool, quiet and affordable yet close to all the amenities. I love that the complex has a pool. Sorry about the sargassum, seems to be hit or miss lately. You can usually walk to the sides of the bay to enter the water and miss the sargassum and the water is still clear. At least that's been our experience. Congratulations on 20 years! That's quite an accomplishment!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed every moment of our trip. This Casita is well maintained, clean, and the property is great.

Just walk around the side of the building and you are at the beautiful beachfront, which you will have mostly to yourselves as the other rooms have their private balconies. If you like sitting in your room on vacation this probably isn't the place for you, but if you are like us and would rather spend the extra money on fun activities and food then this is perfect.

There is a little convenience store right by the parking lot which was handy. Akumal is a cute town with lots of great dining options.

Great place!

  • 4 of 5

This Casita was great! Easy to find, on a quiet street. Was very well maintained, clean, and stocked perfect. Loved the extra touches like extra blankets, huge beach towels, cooler, ice cube trays, blender, DVD player and movies. Thankful for the awesome coffee/snack basket! Daughter loved the free wifi! Was described well to us and owners were fast to respond to our questions, hassle free booking! The pool was great and not super busy, beach was sandy, the water was rough so we didn't swim in the ocean there much. We walked to both Akumal Public beach and Yal Ku instead. At Akumal beach they now enforce renting life jackets to go past the bouy line where the turtles are, $8 US each. Yal Ku we rented a thatch hut that came with hammocks for $20 US, that was our favourite experience in Mexico this trip, amazing snorkelling. We had gone to Xel Ha the day before and wish we saved our money. Restaurants we walked to were La Taverna, Turltle Bay Bakery and La Buena Vida and loved them all. Really regretted not stopping and getting groceries at a larger store as they were quite expensive at the local places. Very fun, safe area...we rented a golf cart from Augustine for a day and that was awesome!

Only complaint were very rude, noisy problem guests above us that kept us up during the nights, that however happens anywhere unfortunately. We would love to visit Casita Maria again!

Owner's Response: Hi Cheri, So glad you enjoyed Casita Maria! I am so sorry that the upstairs guests kept you up. I hope that you talked with Agustin about that. He's really good with talking to people about, well, anything. Last time I went to Xelha was 30 years ago before the highway south of Cancun was paved and I've been hesitant to go again because I hate crowds. Glad to hear that Yalku is just as good. It is a beautiful spot, especially if you get there early before the tour buses! (I hate crowds, remember?!) We hope to have you stay at Casita Maria again some time!

Beautiful beachfront

  • 5 of 5

Clean, quiet. The beach is right there, including amazing snorkeling. Very nice pool and patio on the beachside (the casita faces the street). Excellent housekeeping service every day. The casita is very simple but met all our needs. The maintenance guys are great at maintaining a beautiful beach setting.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely enjoyed every minute of our stay. The accomodation is centrally located and have everything you would need including plenty of towels, linens, boogie board, snorkels and a cooler. We were promptly met upon arrival and check-in along with check out were extremely easy. We enjoyed that ability to rest at night and to stay in and cook dinner and watch a movie. We highly recommend this vrbo and will definitely be back!
