This was my fourth trip to Akamal, and I’m never disappointed. The condo was perfect! Watching the sunrise from our balcony each morning was spectacular. The restaurant downstairs is exquisite. The town offers a variety of restaurants and activities, so you can be as active or sedentary as you like, and never go hungry! A week away from the chaos of life was just not enough.
My husband and I just spent a week at Hacienda de la Tortuga and really enjoyed our stay. For three days the beach was extremely windy and brought in a surprising amount of seaweed that made it difficult to swim. Nonetheless, the beach is beautiful. We made peace with that and chose to find other swimming opportunities not at our doorstep, like a local lagoon and other beaches.
The condos are very well equipped and furnished with a gorgeous view of the sea. Ours was particularly private and we relished that. Having the opportunity to cook rather than dine in restaurants nightly is also appealing and relaxing. We enjoyed shopping for local ingredients to cook. However, if dining out nightly is your thing, there are three good restaurants in the area (walkable). In fact, one of them is right downstairs from the condo.
BONUS: The seaweed miraculously disappeared midweek and the beach became a picture postcard shoreline with excellent snorkeling. We would go back!
