About Jennifer Kelly

I am an energy practitioner in the Tao wellness center and at home near Boston, MA, and looking forward to spending time in both places.

Jennifer Kelly purchased this condo in 2012

Why Jennifer Kelly chose Akumal

Every time I traveled to this area, I would come home homesick for the loving people, the wonderful food, and the gorgeous weather and scenery. There is an energy to this area that I notice as soon as I land. This place beckons, and I respond to its call.

What makes this condo unique

Well designed architecture in a safe, secure beautiful upscale resort near world class resorts with wonderful weather and timeless beaches sprinkled with cenotes and ancient ruins.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I, our daughter and her boyfriend couldn't wait to celebrate my birthday here again. We love it her and will return again.

Wonderful stay!

  • 4 of 5

This is a modern, clean, secure, well-equipped unit and complex tucked away in the back corner of the Bahia Principe Golf Residences area. Our family of 4 with two teenage girls stayed five nights over New Years having spent Christmas on Cozumel. Everything is as described. Jennifer replies quickly to any questions and the on-site manager Manuel greeted us for checkin at the Tao security gate in just a few minutes upon arrival. From the golf clubhouse we picked up our Tao resort living wristbands which gave us our resort access to the Bahia sian kaan and Bahia tulum resorts. There can be a lineup at the clubhouse most days as this is where all resort living Bahia checkin/ checkout and you buy your resort meal passes if wanted so time accordingly, they open 830am. We used the Bahia Tulum resort most afternoons (hard to find a.chair) after our morning adventures and did the snack bar meal option one day $15usd and an all-inclusive day at the Bahia Coba $60usd (which gives you all day and the next day breakfast, you then need to return the ai day pass wristband or you’ll be charged another day - they hold a piece of picture id as security and return in exchange for the used wristbands). We loved the Coba (lots of space and lots of chairs) and the big pool and activities staff. It is a good pace 20 minute walk from Tao to the Sian kaan lobby to catch trolleys to the beach and a taxi is 150 pesos (that’s what I was quoted as zone 1 rate) from Tao so that adds up. There is the resort trolley that picks up at the wellness Centre starting at 830am but ends late afternoon so evening transport is difficult with limited taxis at the Tao gate. We ended up renting a car (from Europcar at Bahia Coba lobby) for our family after day 1 and are so glad we did and toured all around the area and tulum and parked right at the resorts when we were on site. We enjoyed Akumal beach and the restaurants there. The Wellness Centre was a peaceful retreat and the bistro onsite was convenient to grab a coffee or bite. We did our grocery shop in Tulum. Some folks at Tao did the online grocery shop with delivery if they didn’t have a vehicle. There were little markets in Akumal Pueblo as well. The WiFi worked great and there is a smart tv with Netflix. Washer and dryer in the unit as well. I definitely recommend this unit and Tao as a complex just be aware it is a trek to the beach as the Bahia Principe ia a huge complex! Pool areas at Tao are nice too...

Beautiful Condo in Akumal

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two daughters stayed at this beautiful condo in Akumal. The condo is spacious and well appointed with extremely comfortable beds, a well stocked kitchen, living room with a coach that was used as a bed for a few nights and a terrace where you could enjoy breakfast or cocktails. It's located in the Tao Wellness area of the Bahia Principe resort which is much quieter than beachfront hotels. There are great yoga classes, zumba, lap pools, massage rooms and gym located at the Tao and people from the other resorts take the tram over to take part. You can easily take the tram to the beaches and hotels when you want all of the excitement that's happening over there. We rented a car and explored Playa del Carmen, several cenotes, the ruins in Koba and Talum as well as salsa dancing at La Zebra, swam with the turtles at Akumal as well as La Buena Vida restaurant. We couldn't ask for a better vacation.

Fantastic Condo in Akumal

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this beautiful 2 bedroom condo which is part of the Bahia Principe properties. The condo is beautifully decorated, spacious, very clean and has a fabulous well stocked kitchen. I appreciated the cooking oils, spices and especially the lime squeezer to enjoy fresh margaritas on the balcony. I loved hanging out at the condo as it was so peaceful. The beds were also extremely comfortable. The condo is a short walk to the Tao Wellness Center where they have yoga, dance and spa services. I loved the yoga! Everyone was so friendly and helpful and the location is incredible. The white sandy beaches are close by and the inclusive day pass allows you the privilege of staying on a private beach with beach amenities as well as use of beautiful pools and restaurants. It was hard to leave the condo and beaches as it was so relaxing, but I did enjoy day trips to Tulum and snorkeling in the Cenotes. I plan to return again next year with my family and explore this beautiful part of Mexico. This place is truly magical.

Fabulous & Authentic 2 Bedroom Condo in Akumal

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I absolutely loved our stay in this authentically Mexican appointed and well decorated condo in Tao, Akumal. The condo was spacious and clean and felt so comfortable, and allowed us to feel 'at home' during our vacation. Tao Wellness Center is a short walk away, as is the gorgeous pool. Very convenient to get to all of the Bahia Principe properties (We visited them all!) and it was a lovely and short stroll to Bahia Principe Sian Kaan. We did not have a car, but managed to get around very well, and we were also able to visit beaches in Tulum, Akumal and a had a fun night out in Playa del Carmen.

We really enjoyed getting all inclusive day passes to Bahia Principe (at a very, very reasonable cost) where the food and poolside/beachfront amenities are outstanding in all four of the resorts. We particularly loved the beach club at Bahia Principe Sian Kaan and the restaurants in Bahia Principe Akumal. We also asked our taxi driver to stop at the market on our way to the condo from the airport so we can stock up on some snacks and beverages - which was so lovely to have on hand in the condo.

The management company, Dos Chicas, was fabulous. The 'dos chicas' were so helpful and there for us to answer any questions, make restaurant recommendations, and they even loaned me a charger for my kindle which I had forgotten to bring!

All in all, staying at this beautiful condo was just perfect! We had the best of many worlds: world class resorts, renowned Tao Wellness Center (where the yoga classes are incredible, by the way!) and all of the comforts of home! A perfect condo for a mother/daughter, couple, group of friends or family!

I plan to return and stay here again with the rest of my family so we can all enjoy this luxurious gem of a condo. Truly a slice of paradise on the Mayan Riviera!

Our February stayin Quando Valvor - Tao Wellness Center

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for a great stay in this lovely 2nd floor corner apartment. This condo is tastefully decorated and is situated very close to Tao security gate, pool and Tao Wellness Center, where you can ask at the desk to call the golf cart shuttle to take you to the Sian Kaan (Bahia Principe) lobby where you can catch the resort trolly to other lobbies in the resort and the beach. We did wish we had a car, as there is nowhere nearby to by bread, milk, water, etc. We took the trolly to the highway and caught a collectivo to Playa del carmen, Tulum, and Akumal. Taxi drivers did have a little bit of a challenge locating the complex as it is in a very new development nestled among the golf course.

We do not golf, but this is a perfect location for golfers as it is nestled against the golf course. Very quiet relaxing, clean modern and comfortable condo.
