We spent Christmas and New Year’s here at the Hacienda de la Tortuga unit #8. It is absolutely perfect, it has everything you need for a relaxing and beautiful vacation. The condo is beautiful and extremely comfortable and is well-appointed from the fully functional kitchen that is just like home. The bathroom was very spacious and the shower feels amazing after a day at the beach which is steps away right out your door. The condo has a very comfortable king size bed with great closet storage. The pool is very private and feels like it’s all yours. The deck overlooks the most beautiful blue water. The condo is located in North Akumal which is extremely quiet. On the premises is the La Lunita restaurant it opens at 1 pm and is absolutely delicious a great place for lunch and beautiful romantic dinners. The staff is great at Hacienda de la Tortuga. Also located an easy walk from the condo is La Buena Vida an on the beach restaurant bar that is one of the most unique and awesome places I’ve ever hung out a must do when in Akumal. Overall this condo is a slice of heaven and I highly recommend it.
This condo is uniquely situated in the recreational enclave of Peurto Aventuras, an exclusive gated community where you will find all kinds of experiences: beautiful white sand beaches, two big marinas, golf course, tennis courts, aquatic activities, dolphin habitat, restaurants boutiques and shops—most just a short and safe stroll from the condo.
The condo is clean and well equipped, just a few hundred feet from the beach. It features a balcony (pool view), zone air conditioning with thermostats, 2 private baths, washer/dryer and a nice kitchen. But, why cook? Great restaurants are just a few minutes walk and food is very reasonably priced.
The owner, Kevin, provided a beautifully-detailed spreadsheet of nearby activities. You will never be at a loss for things to see, do and...eat. The condo provides kayaks at no charge.
Rent a car (as little as $20/day). Cab from the airport $59-$79 one way, so renting a car just makes sense. And lots of attractions up to an hour drive away.
Consider a day pass to one of the beautiful area resorts. We spent the day at Secrets Akumal Resorts for $120 (USD) per person, all-inclusive. However, the Omni just down the beach offers a day pass for $35 (USD), but credits back $25 for food and drink. More than enough to have a nice lunch and a couple of cocktails or beer at its beach.
Must visit for a night out: Fifth Avenue (Avenida 5) in Playa Del Carmen is a busy 35 blocks lined with all kinds of shops, art and crafts galleries, cafes, restaurants, bars and street performers. It is blocked from traffic to create a wide pedestrian path.
Do not hesitate to rent this beautiful and fairly priced property.
