Car: Recommended

If you already know North Akumal, you know that is a family-friendly, quiet place where you can relax. With the fully equipped kitchens, you can choose to fix your own meals, hire your caretaker, Rene, to fix you some special dinners you are sure to remember, go out to any of the area restaurants, or have catered meals brought in. Many of the restaurants are directly on the beaches of Half Moon bay and Akumal bay: you rarely need a reservation, you will always be welcomed, and there is never a dress code. You may also want to go to any of there nearby towns or attractions including Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Xelha, Xcarat, and more. You can hardly find any better place for snorkeling: both in Yal Ku Lagoon where you have your own private direct entrances, and along the reefs: rent a boat or just swim out to magnificent coral reefs teeming with fish. There are also several places to take Padi certified diving lessons. You will be diving among the fish on your very first day.

Other Activities: Mayan ruins


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: We had been visiting Yal Ku Lagoon for almost 15 years and always loved staying in Akumal, especially directly on the lagoon. We traveled extensively and found ourselves saying, 'this is nice, but it isn't Akumal', or 'it isn't Yal Ku'. So when we found a villa for sale directly on the lagoon, we could not pass it up. After restoring Casa Delfin, we were relaxing in the rooftop pool at night wondering what we were going to do next. We both looked over at Casa Romero which was in terrible shape. Two weeks later we had an agreement to purchase it and renovations began only a few months later.

Why Akumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico:
The Romero Estate is the only privately owned complex of homes on the Riviera Maya - plus it is on the lagoon. We could not pass up the opportunity to restore Casa Romero to its proper grandeur and to convert all the houses to luxurious accommodations.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you have ever been to North Akumal, you know it maintains the laid-back atmosphere that has gone from so many places. We have the feeling of belonging to a community. In addition to the magnificent snorkeling in Yal Ku, one of the things that we like the best is that Akumal is enjoyed by Mexicans as well as tourists. We have gotten to know the many local restaurants and enjoy eating out as being able to cook our own food and entertain friends and family. TRAVEL INSURANCE: For your protection, we recommend that you purchase travel insurance as protection for your vacation. Travel insurance can protect you from many losses you might otherwise incur because of unforeseen circumstances such as illness, injuries, and mandatory evacuations. Note that we can not generally provide refunds for cancellations or interrupted stays. We do recommend travel insurance so that you can be protected. REFUNDS: We do not generally provide refunds. However, if the airport is closed by the authorities or if there is a mandatory evacuation, we carry forward your unused payments (pro-rated) toward a later reservation up to 18 months.
