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!

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!
