About the property

A brand new modern oceanside studio in North Akumal at Nahil. Steps to the beach and pool, or chill on your private deck. Some of the best snorkeling in the world straight off the beach awaits you. Akumal means "Place of the Turtles" in Mayan and there is a good chance you will see them. The studio is newly furnished with a king bed, couch, and is decorated by Mexican Artisans with handcrafted furniture and art for an authentic Mexican feel. An abundantly furnished kitchen awaits you, or walk or rent a bike to over 8 restaurants and shops. Walk around the corner to world famous Yal - Kul Lagoon and view the former Grateful Dead House or head to the beach for fishing and diving tours. Head up or down the highway to explore dozens of cenotes, underground springs and rivers, or head out to the many Mayan ruins.

Enjoy the warmth of the Mayan people and their culture. Go ahead speak some Spanish! But above all, enjoy the Aqua blue ocean, the white sand beach, the sun and the laid back atmosphere. Truly a comfortable place to relax!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a one week visit to Akumal. The condo was perfect for the two of us. The condo sits on Half Moon Bay which does not have all the beach traffic of Akumal Beach so it is quiet. A short walk away is Ya-Kul Lagoon with great snorkeling in a lagoon. We avoided staying at an all-inclusive because we wanted to explore the surrounding areas. We visited cenotes, day trip to Tulum, day trip to Chichen-Itza, more cenotes, and tried different taco stands during our travels. The owners, Carol and Steve, were very responsive in the booking process. Great place to stay if you want to be active or if you just want to lounge around. Highly recommend!!

Great relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

Great studio condo and wonderful location. Snorkelling right off the beach was great. Clean and well maintained unit and grounds. The only thing I missed was a toaster. Bikes would also be a nice addition.

Great location for snorkeling

  • 5 of 5

The perfect place if you want clean, new and with a very helpful (and happy) staff. Not right on the beach but just steps away. Snorkeling right off the beach is awesome and just a short walk to the lagoon where it is Amazing! If you love snorkeling and hate the expensive, sea sick inducing boat rides to get there, this is the place. Just walking distance to great restaurants and a short drive to the old town where you will find the best fresh salsa in the world. Short drive to swim with sea turtles or play with the monkeys. Loved it!

Halfmoon Bay snorkel Paradiso

  • 5 of 5

We have had a great time in Akumal playa. We stayed for 7 nights. The studio is beautifull decorated. Big Good bed, Good kitchen and enough room to go about. Walking along the beach is not the best (steep/ narrow beach/ Lots of coral stones) But the snorkeling is excellent. Akumal pueblo acros the road has a few streetfood places (mmm) and a cheaper store. But the store on the entrance of the beach is Well supplied. A trip to Coba is a must do! Even as the 20km from Coba monkey forest. The rest of this coast is almost all full with private hotels and beaches. From playa del Carmen to Tulum! Thats Better near Puerto Morelos and Maybe on the north coast (have not been There). Finally, we loved Yucatan! What a beautifull places, Uxmal, Ak Balem, Chitzen Itza, great! People are Very Nice and honest ( never felt cheated like sometimes in Afrika Or Asia. ) the food is mmmmm and the sun !!! Thanks for letting us stay at your place. The daily cleaning and the provided purified water was a bonus!!
