Wonderful, private and relaxing vacation, exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

LOCATION: This modern well kept 4-unit property offers beautiful views, direct access to your own private patio, pool and beach and is ideal for people who prefer to stay away from the crowdy and touristic center of Akumal. Turtles indeed come and nest nightly in your own front yard, well ... front beach! No wonder the 'TAO Inspired Living' group chose this private beach stretch for their beautiful Beachclub where you can enjoy a drink and/or light lunch/snacks (once the kitchen is installed). The TAO Ocean residences - one street more inland are being constructed. CASA CORAL VILLA/UNIT: Perfect with all the amenities and service. For a family greater than 4, definitely rent the larger upstairs unit with 2 patios, one with infinity pool offering gorgeous ocean views, one with a jacuzzi. NO CAR, NO PROBLEM: As we did not want to deal with the headache associated with a car rental, we had our airport transfers reserved through i-Akumal, had our essential groceries (drinks and breakfast items) ordered online and swiftly delivered to Casa Coral. Walk alongside the beach to the center of Akumal, a good 15minute walk, where you find a grocery store, dive center and restaurants. Avoid the weekends there, as the crowd increases drastically. We often just 'rolled over' and had lunch and/or dinner next door at the Akumal Villas restaurant, overlooking the ocean, very affordable, friendly service and tasty. RECOMMENDED ACTIVITIES: Instead of visiting the Lagoon/Cenote Yal-ku (too touristic and no good underwater visibilty for snorkeling), we highly recommend the Catamaran snorkel trip (book online with Akumal Dive Center), well worth it! Go for a stroll alongside the beach in the southern direction and check out all the private beachvillas or simply go kayaking (Casa Coral offers kayaks and life vests). CASA CORAL ON-SITE STAFF: Very friendly and daily maid service, a joy. CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: 1) update the patio pictures with the current dark patio furniture (the white plastic patio furniture does not do justice to the overall class/beauty); 2) replace the twin matrasses with quality matrasses; 3) encourage the outdoor crew to keep the private pool water quality clean. A special thank you to David Placencia from i-Akumal/Akumal Villas, who always swiftly responded to any pre-trip questions and inquiries. IN SHORT: We highly recommend Casa Coral to those who are looking for all the modern amenities, beautiful scenery and tranquility.

Very Enjoyable Stay for our Family

  • 5 of 5

We rented the downstairs condo at Casa Coral during July 2017, a family of four. We all enjoyed our stay very much, loved Akumal Beach, the many tortugas, and the comfort and cleanliness of Suite 102. My wife and I were both impressed with the daily cleaning service (including doing dishes) and the fresh towels and bottled water. I found the staff to be very responsive and professional. Having direct beachfront access is a pleasure and the dipping pool out front was a good way to cool off in the hot balmy tropical summers. In season, you will see many sea turtles laying their eggs and if you are lucky (and stay out until the early morning hours) you will see hatchings. That is pretty special, so long as we are respectful of this natural process and do not interfere with this important breeding event. Nearby restaurants are great and we were only twenty minutes by car to Tulum. I also highly recommend Mexican Kan Tours in Tulum pueblo and their Sian Ka'an tours -- pricey but very well run and they teach respect for the Mayan heritage as well as the biosphere and preserving nature and leaving a small footprint in the ecology. All in all, we would love to come back and spend another relaxing week at this particular condo and Jade Bay.

Could Have Been Better

  • 3 of 5

The location of this condo was perfect. But there were some issues with the unit that made our stay less than wonderful. The hot water tank is set way too low. Only one person can take a short warm shower or fill the tub about 4 inches with warm water. When the property manager was alerted to this, she ran the hot water to show me that it comes out of the faucet warm. Obviously, that is not the issue - the issue is that it doesn't last long enough to allow for reasonable bathing. With 2 bedrooms and three bathrooms, a minimum of two people should be able to bathe comfortably per day. The next issue was with the oven. When you rent a home in a remote location, being able to cook is very important. The oven would not heat above 250 F, despite following the instructions on the laminated "how to use" card that was left in the unit. Again, the manager acted perplexed. She turned it on broil to show me that it worked. But the standard oven would not get hot enough to cook a chicken, making for a 3 hour dinner prep with several cooking methods used. Be prepared for these types of discomforts and "perplexed" management responses if you rent this unit.

Owner's Response: Hi Jon! Thank you very much for your detailed review. We take all feedback very seriously, and have been investigating your comments and working with the property to resolve them. All of the water heaters at Casa Coral have now been replaced with brand new, larger ones, to ensure that there is more than enough hot water for showers in every one of the units. We also bought a new oven thermometer and placed it in the oven to check the heating performance. Within 15 mins the thermometer showed 300 degrees heat, and a few mins later it reached 450 degrees, so everything looks good there. :) Again, thank you for your feedback, and for helping us to continue to improve the service at Casa Coral! Thank you very much for staying with us, Jon! We hope that you'll come back and see us again soon! The team at Akumal Direct Reservations.

Very nice but a few issues

  • 3 of 5

The condo is very nice but there are no staples in the condo so, if you were planning to cook for yourself, you would need to buy a lot of groceries. Other than salt, pepper and some olive oil, there was nothing. We ended up eating out every night. We were also not expecting the seaweed to be so bad. It made it difficult to go in the ocean so we ended up going to other beaches to swim and snorkel. We were told it would be cleaned up but wasn't touched. Also, some of the cupboards were broken and the patio door of the living room was so hard to open we used the bedroom one. We were in the lower suite and every time someone moved a chair upstairs, it was very loud. Overall though, we had a nice relaxing time.

Owner's Response: Hi Charles! Thank you so much for your review! Our properties are advertised as self catering, so food is not included in the rental. I am glad that you enjoyed the local restaurants! Akumal has a great range of delicious eateries to try! The nearest grocery store is 10mins drive up the road, and we also have the very convenient grocery delivery services from www.rivieramayagroceries.com. You just order the things that you want online, and they will deliver right to your door! I have passed your feedback about the patio door and the cupboards to the owner of the property. There is an onsite caretaker who, if notified of an issue, is available to help with anything like this. :) Since receiving your review they have oiled the runners on the patio door so that it opens smoothly, and adjusted the hinges on the cupboard door. From time to time, weather systems do push patches of seaweed towards the beach. This happens all over the Caribbean, and the solution in this area is to shovel it up and remove it when it appears. Fortunately this is not a frequent occurrence so most of the time our beaches are pristine. :) As we live in a tropical climate, most of the properties here have tile flooring instead of padded carpeting. When renting in a condo building, you do on occasion hear the neighbors on the tile floors above. For those who are sensitive to noise, the penthouses are a great option, or even better would be a private villa. :) Thank you again for your valuable feedback, Charles. We take every comment very seriously, and we are delighted to hear that over all you had a nice and relaxing time. Thank you for staying with us, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Best possible experience for privacy, ammenities, and best beach around.

  • 5 of 5

My wife, young son, and I rented this condo a little off of high season, but we can't say better things about our experience. Marcia from Akumal direct was delightful and very helpful. If we had a problem or any questions, she was right their to help us. The condo also comes with a daily maid service and grounds person who were all very helpful. The condo is in a complex with only 3 other condos attached, so it is much more private than staying at a larger complex. Each one has it's own little pool that is great for cooling off, but the bay out back is a real gem. Just south of the town of Akumal, which can have upwards of a 1000 people on the beach on any given day, we had maybe 10 people at the most on the beach with us in this bay which is right around the corner. My wife and I were lucky enough to see turtles hatching on 3 different evenings. Jade Bay is known for the turtles, but they generally are around in the rainy season months and end around December. There were kayaks and snorkeling gear provided. The kitchen and living areas were very nice. I would compare it to an upscale Hotel with marble bathrooms, but you have entire 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom condo apposed to only a room and bathroom. Overall for the privacy, quality, and value, this place is a real winner. We will definitely be back to stay again on out next visit down.
