Wonderful time on the Mexican Coast

  • 5 of 5

The Tao condo was a perfect getaway for a trip that had it all. There was plenty of relaxation with some adventure mixed in. The Condo itself was great, comfortable, clean and quiet with a great view of the golf course right outside on the patio. The location really allows you to see all of the different towns and beaches along the coast if you are able to rent a car. We spent days in Playa del Carmen, Akumal, and Tulum as well as touring the many cenotes that are close by. In addition to those areas the resorts included with the condo offered many different activities and amenities we took advantage of.

Last but not least Stephane and Jose Pena were great hosts. From the tour of the properties to making sure we had a reliable and honest rental car company they really went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful time. I will be back very soon and would recommend the Tao Condos to anyone looking for a great getaway.

Great Place for a Quiet Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation in Mexico was a wonderful experience. Stephane was very responsive to questions and shared all the relevant information about the area and condo just ahead of arriving at the airport.

The condo was very clean and had everything you would need for a vacation stay. We spent most of our time out on day trips in the Tulum area but looked forward to heading back to the very quiet and welcoming community to relax from the days activities. I highly recommend contacting Stephane if you are planning a visit to either Tulum or Play Del Carmen. He and Jose go above and beyond their way to make their guests feel welcome during their stay.

Luxiorous, Contemporary Condo in perfect loacation for exploring the Riveria Maya.

  • 5 of 5

My sister stayed at the All Inclusive Bahia Principe Akumal but we much preferred our experience. The condo is fully equiped to cook, do laundry have a separate bedroom from the living room. Walking around the golf course is amazing, let alone haveing a Yoga Studio right on sight. There are so many great restraunts,(Akumal) beautiful beaches and exploring to do in this area. Driving a car is easier than driving in most cities in the US and secure parking in Akumal or Tulum a few peso's. The complex itself is the most secure but non invasive place I have stayed. We are coming back so my boyfriend can golf next time. Our place was easy we could have cooked breakfast or go to the wellness center. We were gone usually for lunch and often brought back take out for dinner. Kingsize comfortable bed, white fluffy towels, amazing shower. Very quite as you have your own condo. Very Zen like atmosphere.

Stephen is great to work with as is his manager who took us to the Club house so we could do the all inclusive thing for the afternoon. It was nice but one afternoon was enough for me. It would have been 3 times as much to stay there and have had to pay evrytime you wanted to do a tour. We beat the tour buses to the ruins in Tulum and made it to Tulum beach ahead of the crowds and was back to our favorite Happy Hour Spot by 6ish. We love it so much we are probabably going to buy a condo here.

Owner's Response: Your information is very useful! You are describing very well the community, the condo, the surroundings, what you can do and about the many restaurants around. I have nothing else to say. Thank you for this excellent informative review. Hope to see you again or to have you as a future neighbor. Stephane

Awesome condo with a great owner! Stephane was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to start our honeymoon in Akumal prior to going to Playa Del Carmen. We wanted to spend some time in a more low key environment and enjoy some resort amenities. We decided on this place because of the central location, its proximity to Tulum (we spent a day there), and wanted a relaxed first few days away from the more active scene in Playa.

Stephane was great, he offered to pick us up from the airport for a small fee which was great for us because we needed to pick up a few groceries and get some pesos out of the ATM. I am glad we used Stephane because we had private transportation, he knew the safe bank to take us and he took us to a grocery store that was basically a Wal-Mart.

The condo itself is in excellent shape, everything is very new and it has a great location. You have access to all of the resort amenities as he has stated. Stephane took us around the property to give us some sense of what to expect. We took the shuttles to the other resort sites. The Tulum resort site is the best one to go to. The pool has music playing and you can just go and hang out. They say you have to have "drink tickets" in order to be able to get drinks, but we just gave the bartender $20 and my wife and I had unlimited drinks. Its an all inclusive resort so they are not strict about it.

The golf course looks amazing and I wish I had time to play, however, the grounds are very nice and its very peaceful there. When using the shuttles, some may say that they don't go back to Tao, however, offer a couple of dollars and they will easily take you wherever you need to go.

We paid $800 pesos or about $45 dollars for a private taxi to take us to the Tulum ruins one day, he took us to a great place to eat breakfast on the beach, we then went to Tulum for a few hours, we called him and he then took us to a beach club where we stayed for another few hours and then took us back to the resort.

You must go to La Lunita for dinner one night, its a really nice place on the beach. My wife and I had 2 appetizers, a bottle of wine, plus cocktails, and two entrees and it ended up being around $65 dollars. Amazing place. There is also right down the street a great bar to go to that is right on the beach with swinging rope chairs instead of barstools. Great place.

If your looking for a great place to stay, this is it! Stephane was great, he even took us to Playa when we checked out for a small fee!

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

Stephane is wonderful to work with. From the very start, he was quick to respond regarding all correspondence. I was traveling with my 2 adult children and a 7 year old and we choose not to rent a car. The condo is trickier without a car, but can be done. Be prepared to walk a bit. Anyway, Stephane offered to pick us up from the Chedraui in Playa Del Carmen, for a small fee, so we did not have to take our groceries on the bus. He spent a good amount of time with us explaining how everything worked and responded to a couple of requests during our 5 night stay.

The condo is set up well with a bathroom for each bedroom and a well stocked kitchen. We cooked several meals and had everything we needed. Access to the Grand Bahia is easy, and if you do take the bus, you can get everywhere once you walk to the highway. I would highly recommend the condo!

Owner's Response: It's always easier to go around with a rental car but as you said, if you don't mind to walk a bit to the highway, you can explore the surrounding area with colectivo (little van). For only few bucks you can go to Tulum, Puerto Avanturas, Playa Del Carmen and many other places. We also have free shuttle service inside the huge resort of the Grand Bahia Principe that gives you the opportunity to go to different hotels and beaches. The good news is that the shuttle is passing by the Tao community to pick you up every 30 minutes instead of every hour like it was previously.
