U-nah-Kin:The perfect beach spot!

Review Submitted: April 23, 2012 Date of Stay: March 2012

The place is awesome! Fabulous beach, great apartment and lovely staff. We were looking for a quiet beach place, away from crowded spots on macro-resorts, and definitely, this is was the perfect choice.

We saw sea turtles when snorkeling near our front door. Later, in the night, one of them came out to the beach and buried its eggs in the sand. We'll never forget this amazing experience!!!

Be careful booking!

  • 3 of 5

Entrance to location had no lights so very hard to find at night.Posting said two bed two bath, got there late in evening and discovered only one of each. Finally the property manager came over and said if you say you have two people coming they give you one bed because two can fit in the bed. Soooooo after much discussion we paid an extra 20.dollars to have the second room unlocked - the next day !

Condos value for the price was appropriate, and grounds keeper was very helpful with luggage when leaving.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry for the misunderstanding of the information. We submitted our ad to VRBO that qualified it as "in good standing." Even though, and thanks to the comments received, we started highlighting this condition in each inquiry, with the intention of avoiding our future guests any doubts regarding their lodging.

Comfortable, Great beach house, perfect for family or couples

  • 5 of 5

For starters, Fernando, my contact person was available for any comment or concern I had prior to leaving home. I had a lot of questions and he put my mind at ease. The house was exactly as described even better really. The trip from the airport ( we rented a car, a must in my opinion) was about an hour. Not a bad drive. Route 307 south. The drive was easy. You must drive defensively. The house is in the middle of everything you want to see. Tulum to the south, we did Tulum and Coba ruins in one day. Playa, to the north, we rented a dune buggy tour for the most amazing Cenote tour you could imagine. Out of this world. Akumal is 5 minutes north that is probably what is considered "going in town" there's shops and a market with an ATM that have both pesos and USD. the restaurants there were excellent. Breakfast with beach views. That is also where you want to snorkel to see turtles. We saw a bunch ( without paying for a "tour") get a life jacket and you can go out to the reef. So over all the house is exactly as described the beach is spectacular and morning walks and sunrises are the reason you rent this house. My family of 5, older teenagers and a 22 Y/o had the time off their lives I know it's something they will never forget. Of course you'll have to spend a night or 2 at the beached bikini bar only about 80 yards from your back door. Carlos the bartender gave us good advice and we enjoyed spending time with the staff there. The people of the Maya area were always smiling and really nice people. You won't get a better time on vacation anywhere than you will here.

Beautiful beachfront location!

  • 5 of 5

Unlike most other condos in the area, this one has coconut trees for shade in the front, and lots of sand. The condo is cleaned outside and in daily, well equipped, we needed for nothing. Would definitely recommend!

Great location and view

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet location right on a lovely, white sand beach, you should definitely consider the condo in Aventuras Akumal. The property is not fancy but it's very clean, functional and well stocked. The beds are very comfortable, the view from the deck and living area is beautiful. There are nice lounges on the beach that you will enjoy under the palm trees or in the sun. The condo is probably best suited for a couple or a family, as it is necessary to go through the first bedroom to get to the second- although it is possible to get to the far bedroom by going out the front door and entering through a side door. I was concerned that it would be difficult to locate the condo at night. However, the directions provided were excellent and by going slowly the last 500 meters, we easily found the gravel road. The condo is about 1:15 from the airport. We found the drive to be easy and never encountered any problems driving in the area. There is a little bar/restaurant just a few houses down the beach but it was just ok. In the actual town of Akumal, about 3 miles north, we ate at La Lunita, a fantastic and reasonably priced restaurant on the bay. Try it! There is a super market in Piuerto Abenruras, about 15 minutes north. It was adequate with some excellent fresh fish. Larger super markets are available in Playa Del Carmen, but there was too much commotion around there and we just drove on to the serene beach of Aventuras Akumal. During our stay we toured the ruins at Talum and Coba and thoroughly enjoyed our swim in one of the many cenotes in the area. We snorkeled in the lagoon at Akumal, but were a bit disappointed by the crowds and mediocre visibility in the water. There were many other activities we could have done, but we were very content right on the beach in front of the condo.

Emplacement idéal!

  • 4 of 5

Petite maison très confortable avec tout le nécessaire pour passer un très agréable séjour dans un emplacement parfait! La plage est très belle et très propre. Nous avons eu la chance de voir les bébés tortues se rendre à la mer, nous avons fait de la plongée tuba et de kayak, le tout à partir de la maison, c'était génial!

Merci beaucoup!
