Love staying at Casa Dos Palmas! I’m very tempted to write a bad review so other people don’t rent it! Esther and Rigo are like family and their cooking is authentic Mayan/Mexican and exceptional. Great house for six or eight people.

Warm and welcoming!

  • 5 of 5

This felt more like HOME than a vacation rental. Our group of 8 women loved our week there and took full advantage of the cooking services of the loving caretakers, Rigo and Esther. Rooms, beds, and ALL facilities VERY comfortable. Walked to the lagoon for snorkeling on our last day and we're sorry we hadn't tried it sooner...fantastic! We were a bit overwhelmed by the crowds and commercialism of the tourist areAs south of Cancun, but Akumal was a peaceful paradise.

Esther and Rico make this property a dream

  • 4 of 5

We were 6 professional women staying at this house for 7 nights to celebrate a 60th birthday. The house is quite nice. There are four bedrooms, two w/king beds and two w/double beds. There is one king and one double on each of the two floors. Each bedrooms has its own bathroom with a shower. The house has a nice living room, a good size dining room table, a decent kitchen and has a rooftop where you can enjoy drinks at sunset or coffee in the morning. There is a smaller bedroom suitable for kids w/no bathroom.

The outside areas are lovely. There is a pool in the font of the house (opposite the ocean) with a nice sitting area w/hammocks and loungers/table/chairs. In the back (ocean side) there is a table/chairs for dining and a lovely area under a canopy with shade and very comfortable outdoor furniture and hammocks.

The view of the ocean is stunning, but this house, like many others in Akumal, is not on the beach. There is a rocky access down to the water with a very small beach area to enter the water. We went snorkeling here once but not much to see. We found good snorkeling in Akumal bay (do not pay the 400 pesos...just walk down the beach a 100 ft) where we saw a lot of turtles and fish. We walked 10 min to the north for beach time where we also had some nice snorkeling (no turtles). I am afraid the beach at Akumal Bay, and Akumal itself, is going the way of Playa del Carmen and becoming commercialized. Staying at Casa dos Palmas did allow us to avoid a lot of the tourist traps and enjoy the calm and beauty.

There are restaurants in town and along half moon bay. I have been coming to Akumal for 30 years so am familiar with food options. None of them are as good as having Esther and Rico, the onsite caretakers, make meals for you. I can't say enough good things about Esther and Rico. The owners of this house are very lucky to have them. Though the house is lovely and the views magnificent, what really makes this place a gem is Esther and Rico. They prepared 5 breakfasts and 5 dinners for us. Ester's food is fabulous. They are gracious hosts, keep the place spotless and do whatever they can to help. We would all come again...mostly because of Esther and Rico.

The one downside was the concierge service the manager referred us to. Very disorganized and inaccurate information on pick up. Being quite familiar w/this airport I was disappointed with the arrangements and lack of proper information.

I'd definitely come back.

Hidden costs

  • 3 of 5

Though we had a lovely time staying in Dos Palmas we were shocked on our last day when the housekeeper asked for a 350 dollar tip. We can only assume guests are expected to subsidise her income. This should be made clear on booking and left us with a very bitter taste.

Owner's Response: Hi Peter, Thank you very much for staying with us at Casa Dos Palmas. We're sorry to hear there was a communication issue with the staff. Please know that our staff never requests a tip (even though it is appreciated). The request at the end was for the additional services which you've used during your stay and forgot to reimburse them for (cook service and grocery shopping, laundry service, additional guests which you've had over for a couple of nights and dinners). We're very sorry to hear that left a bitter taste at the end of your stay and we've asked them to communicate with guests in a more clear manner going forward. Thank you again for your feedback as we're always looking to improve our services.

Luxury by the Sea!

  • 5 of 5

Wow--what a property! With a fantastic backyard overlooking the sea, we watched crashing waves, both from the yard and from the rooftop terrace! On one day we went snorkeling to the lagoon nearby, on another we simply enjoy the luxury of the home, listening to the cocophany of birds while lounging by the pool. The welcome basket of fruits was simply another added delight too! My wife loved breastfeeding our little on on the hammock while watching the sunrise. Because of course, he had us awake buy then!
