Extremely relaxing two weeks on Half Moon Bay, with plenty of sun, swimming, snorkeling.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I shared La Sirena 2 with another couple and found that it had everything we needed for a peaceful respite in a beautiful part of the Riviera Maya. Awakening to the sound of the sea was a treat and such close proximity to the water (bay or pool) was glorious. While other properties on the Riviera Maya were contending with excesses of seaweed, La Sirena's location on the bay left it relatively clear of the stuff, a plus if you enjoy swimming in the salt water. Swim shoes are a must if you plan to swim in the bay. Snorkeling wasn't amazing, but there was enough to see to make it interesting. We did spend a morning at Yal Ku Lagoon, which is just footsteps from La Sirena, and there were plenty of colorful fish to see.

We cooked some meals at La Sirena and found the kitchen well stocked; everything worked well. We had a little trouble making the television and DVD player work, but suspect our limited technological skills were to blame. We were happy to find a Rummikub game and a jigsaw puzzle or two. We contributed the puzzle we brought with us to the collection. Air conditioning worked well, but we found we didn't need it most of the time.

The two king beds were very comfortable. The master bedroom's shutters did limit privacy a bit, but it was a lovely room with plenty of storage and space. Bathrooms worked well; we found we had to wait a bit for hot water, but that wasn't a hardship.

The cleaning people did a great job, were very pleasant and helpful when we had questions.

We've been at home for only two days (12 degrees in NH), and are already talking about our next stay in Akumal.

Thank you for everything.

Most relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our condo on the beach was wonderful...spacious, pretty, well equipped, and so comfortable. It really felt like home. We practically had the private beach right off the screened in porch to go ourselves and the view of the beach and water is so soothing. The place is quiet and yet so near good restaurants and places of interest. We really liked that Akumal has no high rise buildings.

Fantastic property - couldn't have wished for more

  • 5 of 5

Traveled late July/early August with my nephews. I really wanted to stay at this complex but was having a difficult time booking due to most units not having their VRBO or Homeaway calendars up to date. I don't know how I missed this one in my search, but having just about given up, I found this unit owned by Paul and Mona (and rented directly through them). I couldn't have asked for a better unit. We had absolutely everything we needed for our stay; the kitchen was fully stocked, there was snorkeling gear for the bay, a clothesline in the screened in patio and the unit is comfortably furnished. Even the beds were comfortable, and that is a rarity in Mexico where the mattresses tend to be hard. We used the air conditioning sparingly as requested, but when we absolutely needed it, it cooled everything down in record time. Paul and Mona provide a welcome basked of baked goods and coffee from Turtle Bay which were enjoyed immensely by my nephews over the week. The walk to town is a little over a mile each way, I think; if the heat bothers you, you can rent a golf cart or bikes. All in all, this is a terrific place to stay.

Beautiful property and unit. Had everything needed to enjoy our stay. Beds very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Loved having coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening outside overlooking Half Moon Bay. Enjoyed watching the birds and the wildlife wake up with the sun. Saw a spotted eagle ray playing in he water one day too. Snorkling right out the back door was some of the best we have ever done. Lots of corals, fans and fish. Enjoyed all the local restaurants with fantastic food. Swam with the turtles, sailed and went scuba diving with Akumal Dive Shop in Akumal Bay.

Quiet beauty and relaxation

  • 4 of 5

Being able to walk out to the water was a must for us. We really enjoyed the solitude of the this place at the end of the bay, but at the same time, it was convenient to 2 restaurants and Yal Ku Bay! We rode bikes (rented in the building) to town on many occasions for groceries, breakfast, cocktails and to go to the town beach!
