Great Condo- Excellent Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at La Sirena #2 on Half Moon Bay the first week of April 2017. The condo had everything we needed and the view was spectacular! The kitchen is fully stocked, the bedrooms are rather large and the living room and screened porch have the most amazing views! The welcome basket of pastries and coffee was a nice surprise to get us started Sunday morning- Thank you Paul and Mona!! We ate at many local restaurants, but our favorites were Taverna (at the arch) and La Buena Vida (right on the beach) both in Akumal. My family, including a 14 yr old boy & a 10 yr old boy loved snorkeling right in front of the condo...we saw rays, eels, turtles and many colorful fish. We also loved the large pool, which most evenings we had all to ourselves. We rented a car for the week and visited Tulum ruins, Grand Cenote, Xel-Ha, Chichen Itza, IL Kil Cenote, Jardin El Eden Cenote and had a great time! La Sirena is a great place to stay and you are so close to many attractions. Thank you for a great vacation!!!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 wonderful weeks in Paul and Mona's condo. Everything was perfect. We snorkeled quite often in Half Moon bay. The weather could not have been nicer and the low humidity was a bonus. The bed was very comfy and the bed linens were of high quality. Th welcome basket sent from the owners was such a nice touch and very tasty. Loved waking up to a beautiful ocean view.

Crashing waves... were the best!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were great - good size for four adults. Very comfortable. Screened in porch with view of Akumal Bay a wonderful place to enjoy your morning coffee or late night glass of wine. Kitchen well stocked with dishes, pots, etc. Bedrooms comfortable. Housekeeping service a lovely bonus which included fresh towels, etc. Wonderful lounging space right out the door - grass or sand area with palapas - very quiet. Speed bumps are killers driving into Akumal - but worth it being at the end of the bay. Snorkeling on Half Moon Bay was great fun...but bring watershoes - the coral is a tad rough! Great restaurants near by - thoroughly enjoyed La Buena Vida and La Lunita - outdoors... sand under your feet once you slip your shoes off. Easy drive to Tulum, Coba, Playa del Carmen...

All in all a wonderful family vacation. Thank-you Paul and Mona!

Perfect location on Half Moon Bay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay, but we will definitely return! To begin with, the transportation from the airport was arranged by Ruth, the manager of the La Sirena condos. We had asked to make a grocery stop on the way, which worked out great! Jesus, our driver was very helpful at the store by translating when we needed questions answered, as well as with helping us carry all the groceries in. The courtyard upon entrance is very beautiful with an abundance of tropical plants and flowers all around the pool and walkways. The condo itself is exactly as in the photos, with a lovely Mexican feel. The view out the front windows is breathtaking! With Half Moon Bay just a few steps out the patio doors. Beds and linens were the best! Kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans, nice dishes, and glasses, including plastic ones. There are lots of stairs, but that added to the style. Each day we spent most of the time in the front yard enjoying the sunshine, warm ocean breezes, snorkeling the reef, and marvelling at the beautiful sunsets! We walked to Akumal several times (suggest early morning) to browse the shops and pick up a few groceries. Super Chomak has a wide variety of souvenirs as well as groceries and hot chicken, fries, and pizza (after 11 am). There are also several good restaurants along the way as well as in town. Yal Ku Lagoon is a short walk away, and very nice! Lots of fish! The Parrot fish were my favourite, up to 3 feet long, and such awesome colors! $14 US per person, all day. We usually went in the morning, returned 'home' for lunch, and went back in the afternoon. Mornings there are quite a few tour groups, but afternoons were pretty quiet. There is also a small restaurant on site, and one 2 minutes offsite, no food or beverages can be brought in. Half Moon Bay itself has lots of corral and several varieties of fish. We saw a couple of turtles and a large sting ray. Some of our neighbors saw a 6' Barracuda! We entered the bay on the concrete walkway at the far left of the property, it was the deepest there. The whole bay is quite shallow, with a rocky bottom with lots of large urchins. Please wear shoes! The reef is a short swim away, but it is against the currant. Once you reach the reef, the currant is less strong.

Ruth and Alfredo, as well as the rest of the staff were GREAT, and took care of any questions we had. They were also very willing to help arrange taxis, tours, etc.

We had a wonderful time and hope we can make it back to La Sirena soon!

Right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is our fifth stay at La Serena Condominiums and our second with this specific unit. It is a beautiful unit with all of the comforts of home. We greatly appreciated the welcome basket and the caretaker and housekeepers are very accommodating. The view is beautiful and we enjoy sitting out on the veranda and watching the waves. We enjoy the ability to walk right out onto the beach. We like to sleep with the windows up and catch the ocean breeze as well as hear the ocean. This is our preferred place to stay in Mexico and will definitely be coming back.

Two weeks at La Sirena in Akumal

  • 5 of 5

This condo met all of our expectations. We wanted a Mexican flavor with amenities and it was perfect. The view from this ground floor property was beautiful and the grounds were very well kept. The managers and housekeeper kept on top of all of our needs. The owners made themselves available whenever we needed a question answered. We would definitely come back.
