About Paul & Susie Alex
We stumbled upon Akumal in 1991 and immediately fell in love with the area and the people. Purchasing a Condo in Akumal was our goal. We found La Joya and purchased our vacation dream home in 1992. We have traveled to many tropical locations before and since but find that we have the best of everything in Akumal.
Paul & Susie Alex purchased this Condo in 1992
Why Paul & Susie Alex chose Akumal
La Joya Condominiums is in the perfect setting right in the middle of Half Moon Bay, just steps from the oceans edge. The condo is walking distance to several restaurants and convenience stores. The Staff at La Joya are like family to us and many have been here since our first visit.
What makes this Condo unique
All year long Sea Turtles swim in the waters of Akumal, which in Mayan means 'Place of the Turtles' The summers are filled Sea Turtle nesting right on the beach in front of the Condo. The loggerhead and green turtles lay their eggs at night and hatch 50-60 days later with a mad scramble to the sea. Those are our unique magical moments unless you're counting incredible sunrises from the bed of the master bedroom and the calming ocean surf falling against the shore. Oh, and one more thing - it truly is Paradise.

Perfect Location, Beautiful Home
We stayed 7 nites at LaJoya #5. The location was perfect! Very close to lots of activities, shops, restaurants, but also on a very quiet beach. The staff was amazing, they work so hard to make sure everything is perfect for you. The home had everything we needed plus some.
Hi Heather & Gary,
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in our home. That was one of the reasons we love Akumal and Half Moon Bay. So close to so many activities but quiet enough to make you think you have the whole beach to yourself! We look forward to having you visit at La Joya 5 in the future.

Love this Half Moon Bay Condo at LaJoya Condos
This is the second time we stayed in LaJoya Condo #5. This time we came a month later than two years ago (May 13-May 18). Our daughter joined us this time. She had never been to Akumal before. We all had a wonderful time. The condo is fully equipped with everything you need for a perfect vacation. We had full breakfasts (eggs, potatoes, bacon, toast, juice and coffee) every morning! That is what we enjoy on our vacations. We normally had a light lunch or a happy hour at a beach spot in Akumal and then dinners out every evening. This time we did rent bicycles at the LaJoya condo office which is staffed by friendly and professional staff. We cannot thank Susie enough for sharing her beautiful condo with us. I miss the sound of the ocean and the breezes at night. We got a taxi and went to the ruins of Tulum one day. The rest of the time we relaxed on the beach or biked to Akumal to get more beer!
We had a meal at one of the Tulum beach restaurants. Snorkeling was perfect at the Yal Kul Lagoon! We did not snorkel in front of the condo but did sunbathe in their most comfortable lounge chairs!! We look forward to our next visit!
So happy you enjoyed your stay. We have always found Akumal to be the perfect place to relax. We look forward to your next visit.
One of the most nicely equipped and maintained condos we have ever occupied.
After a bad experience last year, we decided to ask more questions about maintenance and condition and age of the A/C and refrigerator. We didn't want a repeat of failed A/C and a refrigerator that made no ice and barely kept things cool. I can honestly say the owners take care not only that things work properly but the outfitting of the kitchen had everything you could possibly need or want. It was like home. It was a very pleasant experience and we look forward to returning to this specific condo on Half Moon Bay. An easy walk to our favorite hang-out, Buena Vida. Highly recommend this condo.
Thank you for the kind words. We enjoyed sharing our home with you and look forward to working with you for your next visit.
(We want to clarify that your previous bad experience was not at Our condo)
What a great place to celebrate a birthday!
This place was truly amazing! The view was just what the doctor ordered. The condo had everything we needed to have a wonderful week on the beach. My husband and I came down from Colorado with our son who turned 30 and his girlfriend to celebrate. The staff was so friendly and very helpful. What a selection of movies and books! We did watch movie just to chillax! Snorkeling was so fun right out in front of the condo. It was our son and his girlfriend's first time snorkeling. It will NOT be their last time! We traveled to Tulum, rented bikes and went to the lagoon to snorkel a few blocks away. We did not rent a car. We ate dinner out every night except one. We truly were on vacation. The two king bed suites worked perfectly for the four of us. There is a roof top observation deck that was super cool for sunrises. Nothing better than a sunrise over the Caribbean! Thank you Susie and Paul! I would rate this place SUPER AWESOME! Cannot wait until next year when we come again!
This condo unit was wonderful! The view was amazing, the kitchen was well stocked for preparing breakfast and lunch in, the large flat screen was nice (although not often used), and the "shower room" in the master (as my 13-year-old called it) was awesome. Having board games, books, and movies was also a plus! The shared pool was the best I've experienced at Half Moon Bay - very clean, not ever crowded, and refreshing! There were also always plenty of palapas and beach chairs on the beach in front of the condos and beach towels were provided. Another cool thing about this condo was the rooftop. We really enjoyed watching the sunset and star gazing from the roof.
We considered leaving for an excursion one day, but everyone agreed that we had plenty to do and loved just relaxing in Akumal. Thank you for sharing this beautiful condo with us!
We were happy to share our little piece of Paradise with you. So glad you were able to take advantage of all the things to do and restaurants the bay has to offer to enjoy your family getaway. We look forward to your next stay.

Perfect condo in perfect location
We loved everything about this condo. It was very well equipped and the kitchen was incredibly well stocked....juicer, blender, toaster, bottled water, etc. The location on Half Moon Bay is great for snorklers. There are rocks in the water, so you need water shoes, but the coral and fish are plentiful. If you prefer a sandy beach, go to Aukmal Bay, but it's also more crowded. The beds were very comfortable, the air conditioner worked very well, the management company was responsive and friendly, excellent daily maid service. There were many movies, books and games available, along with NetFlicks. The views and sun rises were fabulous. The pool was warm and very well maintained. There are only 6 units in this building, so we could usually find a lounge chair and shade. If you're looking for clubs and nightlife, this is not the spot for you. It's more relaxed and outdoor activity oriented. We spent a fair amount of time down the beach at La Vida Buena....great happy hour and ambiance. Thanks for a wonderful stay, we will be back!!
So glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you so much for your comments. We love Akumal because there are so many things to do and see...or to just sit on the balcony with morning coffee or evening drinks. We look forward to having you stay with us in the future.
Susie and Paul
