Fantastic experience with TAO Wellness Community penthouse condominium

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two of our oldest friends stayed this May and June for a week at the TAO Wellness Community in Akumal, Mexico, in a lovely penthouse suite advertized by VRBO and managed by Gate48 Vacation Rentals. As per all of my prior experiences with VRBO property rentals to date, the rental unit and surrounding facilities (pool, gardens, and access to the nearby Bahia Principe Beach Resort) and all services provided by the expert on-site staff met or exceeded our expectations. The apartment was well-furnished, clean, enjoyed marvelous views of the surrounding jungle and landscaping, and was as comfortable and beautiful as one could hope for. We will certainly be returning again to enjoy this lodging in the near future.

Great Concept, but a Bit Short on Execution

  • 3 of 5

There are two parties involved in the rental: Gate48 Vacations, and the owner. So, let's separate the review into these parts. Gate48 Vacations was easy to deal with, they were responsive to our needs, they provided good information and local guidance, and their local representative was very responsive.

The apartment overall is quite nice, and had it not fallen short in the following areas, we would have given it a better review. Nearly all of the upstairs outdoor furniture is unusable. We were told the manager did not have authority to replace this furniture. As we were five and there were only two table chairs in working condition, the manager provided three temporary chairs. The jacuzzi had no drain stopper, so it is unusable as well. The water kettle stopped working while we were there, and it was not replaced. The apartment advertises as accommodating six people, with two on what is supposed to be a convertible sofa. However, the trundle bed underneath is too small for an adult. Had we been six, as originally planned, we would not have had a bed for all. While the roll screen doors are a really good implementation, the screens on both the patio and upstairs doors are split at the bottom on one end, making them difficult to operate. There were several lights that did not work, with the worst being the overhead lights in both bathrooms. It appears this was due to wiring faults, and not just bulbs or fixtures.

On the positive side, each time we contacted the management company, they responded immediately, and they fixed what they had the authority to fix. The location, security, grounds maintenance and overall appearance and accommodation are quite good. If the owner paid more attention, and worked more closely with the management company, this could be an excellent property.

Fabulous first visit to Mexico!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have asked for a better vacation! We decided last minute to take our son and his good friend to Mexico the week before their graduation from High School. It was also our Anniversary and we all had a wonderful time! Paola and Maureen made the planning so easy and helped us with everything from start to finish! The Penthouse was very clean and comfortable and had all the extras to make us feel at home! The location is very convenient and central to all that this area has to offer, yet is tucked away in a peaceful, beautiful setting. You get the best of both worlds here!

We took the Canada Transfer shuttle from the airport, but Paola arranged for our rental car to be waiting at the Penthouse when we arrived. This is the best way to handle transportation. We all highly recommend staying here and we plan to return again soon as there is still so much to see and do! Everyone is very friendly and the food and service were exceptional at area restaurants as well as on the property. Just a great all around vacation!...Must GO!

Highly Recommended !

  • 5 of 5

The condominium was lovely and spacious and the staff on site were helpful as well as kind. Unlike many places this affordable in the area, it was very clean and ultra modern. Paola the concierge met us at the gate and personally checked my husband and I into our room. The free morning yoga was very relaxing and the grounds were absolutely beautiful. We will definitely be back as soon as we can!

There is so much to do within walking or cycling distance of the TAO Center that it’s hard to know where to start! If exercise, yoga or meditation are on your list you can start right at the wellness center.

The TAO Wellness Center allows a space for guests and residents to transform ancient and timeless spiritual practices in daily pathways to peace and inspiration. This center offers both residents and guests a vibrant gym, movement room and lap pools from Mondays to Saturdays.

Our program provides daily mind-body experiential classes such as various forms of yoga, meditation, tai chi, qi-gong, zumba, body boot camp among others with accomplished teachers and visiting experts. Throughout the week, classes, workshops and guided sessions explore spiritual and stress management themes in a way that is both practical and accessible.

Follow this with a healthy drink from the smoothie bar and you have a wonderful start to the day. Other things that you might do that are very close to “home��� might be:

TAO Inspired Living homeowners and guests have the Riviera Maya Golf Course right at their doorstep. It’s an impressive architectural project designed by Robert Trent Jones II. He achieved a synergy between the 27 holes of this extraordinary golf course and the majestic wild Mayan jungle, surrounded by beautiful natural lakes and water holes which, together with a combination of rocks and water, becomes a spectacular environment and make playing golf in the Mayan Riviera a real pleasure. This golf course is considered to be the third best in the country and important tournaments are hosted here.

The golf course features an 80,000 square feet Bahia Principe Clubhouse, set against the seclusion of open space and undeveloped land, partnered with resort-style amenities. An ideal retreat for nature lovers and golf enthusiasts alike.

The jungle in the area of the TAO Center has beautiful flora and fauna. You can hike or bike to see the nature and feel the jungle vibe. If you want to cover more ground you can hit the pavement or sidewalks of the four attached resorts of the Gran Bahia Principe complex and see beautiful sculptures, interesting sights and meet new people. Stop and enjoy the many forms of entertainment offered on the resort free of charge.

TAO Inspired Living is located in the heart of the Riviera Maya, at the north east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, which features an array of attractions ranging from deserted beaches to modern architectural complexes, including hotels, marinas, sports facilities and gourmet restaurants. It has several small towns along its coastline; all of them located no more than 1.5 miles from the wonderful turquoise waters of the Mexican Caribbean. The most important towns in the region are Playa del Carmen, Puerto Aventuras, Tulum and Akumal. At the southern end you�����ll find the biosphere reserve, Sian Ka��������an, a habitat noted for the richness of its flora and fauna.

The Mayan culture remains present throughout the area, in the many indigenous communities still found here. They strive to preserve their traditions, religion and social structure, although the real splendor of the ancient Mayan civilization is most evident in the numerous archaeological sites of this stunning area, such as Tulum, Cobá, Chichen Itz�����, among many others. It is through the pyramids, playing fields, sculpted stone pillars, plazas and temples that some of the mysteries, still surrounding one of Mexico���s most important cultures, have been partially deciphered.
