Relax/Recharge in a Fully Updated Large Corner w/ Beach, Pool & Gardens
I have always loved vacationing to and experiencing different cultures. And for some reason could never get enough beach or snorkeing time! We dreamed of owning our own 2nd home, and when we came to Akumal in 1995, it set the standard for our dream. We wanted to create our little slice of paradise with all the ideas that we had gathered, and providing the perfect casual, luxury getaway for ourselves and our guests.
Diana purchased this Condo in 2004
Why Diana chose Akumal
Our little complex, La Sirena is special in that we have double the space that other properties in HMB. This allows us to have a wonderful large pool, as well as gardens and no crowds on our beach. The set up of our building is such that it feels more like attached houses, not condos.
What makes this Condo unique
We love sitting anywhere in the condo and having a fabulous view and gardening on our grounds. We love to go snorkeling right out in our bay, seeing the baby fishes that have just hatched, and swimming with the turtles. And then in the evenings at dusk walking the beach watching the flocks of pelicans fly inland for the night, and then grilling out on our beach and watching the sun go down.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Loved everything about this place! From the reservation, arrival, departure, Distance was helpful and responsive! It was exactly as shown in photos, except it's much better in person. Diane has everything you need. Extra condiments, ice, towels for the beach, hair dryer. You name it she has it! And you are steps away from the beach. The local people are really nice. If you want to relax, this is the place to be. You are also close to many attractions. Can't wait to come again soon!
A wonderful place- more beautiful than described !
The condo is beautiful with art and upscale furnishing . The housekeeping and groundskeeping is exceptional. The view of the water and the private beach makes you feel you are in paradise . Would definitely like to return someday.
Thanks for the fantastic review. And I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I truly think that having dedicated on site staff makes a huge difference. And while people don't originally book because the gardens, they fall in love with them,.
Nice place on the beach.
Great beach front unit with everything one would need. Great ac and fans and good beds.
We are so glad that you had a good relaxing time, and look forward to you coming back
THE Place To Stay
What a great condo! Beautifully decorated, comfortable beds, attentive host, amazing ocean views, and within two blocks from Yal-Ku for snorkeling. That place was amazing! It is like snorkeling in an aquarium! Be advised though that there are TWO Yal-Ku businesses who operate individually. One for the cenote and one for the lagoon. The cenote does not require life jackets so you can dive through rock openings and get up and personal with the fishes. The lagoon is to the right (East) and has the beautiful sculptures but life jacket is required. Do BOTH! Condo is also close to several restaurants and all the X’s, Xel-ha, Xcaret, etc. I highly recommend Xel-Ha. May try Actun Chen and Xcaret on my next visit. Yes, there will definitely be a next visit!
I want to praise the groundskeeper, Guadalupe. He is so friendly and even used his machete to open coconuts on the property for us!
This place is on my must return list!
HI Pam! Thanks for the extensive review! There are ton of things to do that we are very close to. Also consider Rio Secreto, I used to buy plants for our gardens there before they made it in a concession. Also there are other places listed on my new website, with tons of photos. And as to our tropical gardens, and cocos, we have grown all those our selves, and have so many that we love to share with our guests! No need to buy coconuts when you are staying at La Sirena !
A beautiful family vacation in Akumal.
We arrived home after a glorious week in Akumal Mexico. This extremely comfortable, home away from home is located in a very safe and secure gated small community. We traveled into town twice, once to drop off laundry that we paid by the pound and picked up the next day and the second time to travel to a nearby grocery store. We spent most of the vacation in the condominium relaxing, playing with the sand toys in the sand and snorkeling in the front yard. Numerous beach chairs by the pool and on the private beach allowed for plenty of relaxation. The air-conditioning allowed the bedrooms and the living area to be extremely comfortable and cool. The beds are exceptionally comfortable, the sheets are high-quality and the towels are numerous. We had daily maid service, and new friends in the complex had hired a cook for under $40 to make them several meals at once. This is a good idea for the next time we visit. We went out to breakfast and dinner that are only a walk away. We had a choice of three restaurants that were all within walking distance. The swimming pool at the complex is one of the best in the community. I was able to swim laps, and the staff in the complex or extremely friendly. We were able to arrange a fishing boat trip from a restaurant in the small mall across from the Akumal diving center. I highly recommend this two bedroom two bathroom condo, I hope we can come back soon. Perfect for our 14 yo son and 6 yo daughter.
Thanks so much for your detailed and thoughtful review. I'm so glad you had a wonderful time. Seascape is a special place, as well as our little complex. It's like a world away. Do come back soon, and for more ideas on things to do check out me new website: www.akumalbeachcondo.com!!
Just as described
Our family had a great time at this rental. Definitely the nicest, most private spot along the whole beach. Snorkelling directly in front of the condo was amazing. We would definitely rent this spot again, thanks so much!
And thanks you for coming and staying with us. I'm going down my self in a few weeks for some R&R. Can't wait for our beautiful sunsets! Diana
We are on Half Moon Bay (HMB) which is considered the 'original' Akumal, along with Akumal Bay. HMB, now called 'North Akumal' is where most of the beach front houses and small condo complexes are; and is a designated ecological zone, therefore it is very low density. So while you are close to everything you feel as though you are in the middle of nowhere because its very private and quieter.
All types of water sports are available, including deep sea fishing and swimming with dolphins. There are also many close by activities, Nature Parks, Hiking/Walking, and Museums. Being a center of strong ecological conservation, Akumal has incredible snorkeling and some of the best diving in the Caribbean, being on the Meso-American reef (2nd longest reef system in the world), With an established environmental center Centro Ecologica Akumal (CEA), you also have opportunities to various eco-tourism activities such as turtle monitoring.
In addition to the water sports and adventure parks, there are many culture activities, as our area has many Mayan ruins close by, the major ones being Coba, Tulum, Muyhuil, and Ek-Balam.
We truly are the center of a great vacation spot!
