About John Faccone

We live in Arizona and this is our future Retirement Condo. Not quite ready to live here part time or full time, so you can enjoy our condo for now.

John Faccone purchased this condo in 2015

Why John Faccone chose Akumal

We have spent our life traveling the world. Europe, Australia, US, Canada and Mexico. If you are a beach person or just want to be where it is warm all year, this is the place. We started coming to Cancun in 1990 and have visited about every 2 years. In between trips we went to these other places, including Hawaii 10 times, and have never found anything better. We started venturing down the Mayan Riviera about 10 years ago and realized it was unique. We found the Tao Wellness Center online and last year booked our timeshare at the Bahia Principe Resort. We were instantly sold! You will not find a better combination of Residences, Beaches, Resort Environment and Golf anywhere. Try it out and let us know if you agree.

We loved our stay at TAO community. John Faccone (owner of condo) was excellent in terms of relaying information, accomodations, etc.. Would definitely come back next year, and stay in the same condo. Thanks John and VRBO.

Beautiful location in paradise!!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the condo & location. It was very clean when we arrived. John the owner was very nice and easy to work with. The blender quit working one day & he provided a new one for us within a few days!

The kitchen has everything you need to prepare your meals, which we did most days.

The management contact Rossina was excellent to work with.

I would recommend renting at this condo.

Great place, amazing owner

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing vacation, loved staying at the TAO condo. You have all the conveniences you need and if anything comes up, John is super responsive and helpful. Couldn't have asked for anything more. We are not really resort people so we only went one day, but spent most of our time at the beach in Akumal, Tulum or the TAO pool. Highly recommend!

Akumal 2017

  • 5 of 5

John's place was great for me, my wife and daughter. It had everything we needed for our week stay. The filtered water avail was great and the A/C blew very cold! (Which we loved) The property is very clean and the staff were very friendly. The process and directions were easy to follow. We also liked the fact that the condo didn't seem "touristy".. there wasn't a ton of people around- It was nice to escape the crowds! I really have to think hard about what I didn't like about this condo? I guess at one point I needed a extra trash bag and couldn't find one - First world problems right!!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

I was hesitant to rent a condo in mexico, but all inclusive hotels made it impossible for my family of four to afford 7 days. Im glad to go with this condo! Affordable, clean and spacious.We fell inlove right when we walked in.The staff was amazing they were very helpful. They also arrange my car rental and car arrive in 3 hrs. We paid $65 a day insurance and tax included.

John please look forward seeing my request to rent your condo next year!

Thank you so much! I highly recommend this condo!

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time Ive stayed at this property and loved it! Beautiful, Clean Condo with Awesome Amenities! Plenty of things to do nearby. I recommend renting a car and stopping by grocery store to have some snacks or food in case you get hungry. There are plenty of excellent restaurants around with many food and price choices. There are many tours and lovely places to see. The Beaches and the Water are the most Beautiful Ive ever seen! My <3 is here! Have Fun!
