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.

Great place in ideal spot. Clean and very well equipped condo. Fantastic!!
We just returned from staying in this beautiful condo for a week with our 2 children ages 4 and 8. We have stayed in Akumal before and love the area. This condo was perfect for our family. It is located in Half Moon Bay which is set apart from the craziness of Akumal Beach but still within walking distance from the restaurants as well as Yal-Ku lagoon. Akumal Beach parking near the restaurants is difficult so it was nice to just be able to walk. My husband and I loved being able to snorkel from the beach and the kids LOVED the pool. The view from the condo is awesome. We spent a lot of time on the terrace watching the waves and stars. Eating highlights included Que Onda, Turtle Bay, La Cueva. The condo comes with 2 boogie boards. The staff were all lovely. Extra bonus...air conditioning units. The only bummer was no satellite or cable but they have stocked the condo with books, games, and DVDs. I also recommend having groceries delivered to the condo ahead of time using Riviera Maya Groceries.
Gorgeous place, relaxing stay and the friendliest people!
We had another magical stay in Akumal! The condo is absolutely gorgeous and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. We brought our four month old baby girl and she absolutely loved it! She’s never napped better than on our vacation to Akumal! The extra touch of having the pack n play set up for us was so thoughtful and helpful! My favorite part of the stay was my baby’s afternoon naps on me while on the swing on the balcony overlooking the ocean. I could do that every day! It was so peaceful! Falling asleep to the sound of the waves is the ultimate relaxation, which is incredible to be so relaxed with a young baby! ;-) The air condition was amazing and a nice reprieve from the humid heat outside, The staff was all so friendly and we enjoyed our evening chats with Jose, the security guard. He told us about the turtle hatchings and even came to our door to let us know when it was happening! (We were unfortunately sleeping and missed it both times!! Bummer!) Jose was super helpful with our golf cart and made sure it was charged each night for us. We felt safe and welcomed! Thank you for providing a wonderful place for our vacation! We will definitely visit your beautiful condo again!
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)
