Recent Akumal reviews

  • Perfect place for quiet relaxation and incredible snorkeling!

    "My wife and I stayed at La Iguana #3 over Christmas and it was a perfect getaway! The condo is tucked towards the end of the road on the very North end of Half Moon Bay. Everything was just as described. It was kept clean every day. We didn't cook, but there are all the basic utensils. If you are thinking of doing a lot of cooking, I would recommend stopping at Mega or somewhere in Playa (cheaper and better options). The apartment isn't like the high luxury apartments you might find in Playa or on Akumal beach - and that is what makes it great! If you want a thumping nightlife scene and scores of people looking to party, this is definitely NOT the place for you! If you want to be a little off the beaten path, have incredible snorkeling right from your apartment, sleep to the sound of waves, and still have access to great restaraunts and activities, this place is perfect! There are a thousand things to do in the surrounding areas, but we didn't leave Akumal once and we don't feel like we missed out of anything! There are several places to eat within walking distance, but I would highly recommend renting a bike ($35 for the whole week per bike) from the office. Actually, our daily ritual of riding our bikes to explore the town was one of our favorite activities! The snorkeling in front of the apartment is incredible! Don't be like the idiots who wander around, trampling the delicate coral!! Once you get out to the deeper water, you'll find schools of all types of fish, turtles (I only saw one), barracuda, urchins, rays, and even some eels. We actually saw a barracuda jump out of the water while hunting a bunch of jumping baitfish! Careful, however, the current can be strong on windy days! If you go to Akumal beach, you'll see that it is VERY different than half moon bay. LOTS of people but I would highly recommend it. Don't bother paying $25 per person to get a guide. Simply walk about 200 yards (meters) South, past the boats, and go in. There are plenty of turtles to see there and all you have to do is look for them. Swim further and find coral life (don't touch). I few of the other reviews mentioned the heat in the apartment due to the large windows, so that was an area of concern for us. We found that while it did get warm by the windows, as long as you open the window at night, it says pretty comfortable."

  • Rustic condo on the beach, cannot be beat

    "We loved everything about the condo and Marcy's(owner) response and customer service matches the awesome locale and experience as top notch. If we return to Akumal it would be to stay here. The beach was wonderful but water socks are a must. Located minutes from Tulum we have convenient access to the hustle and bustle, but can retreat to the condo when it's time to decompress. Marcy we would like to thank you, Ismael and Sueami for one of the best vacation experiences our family has ever experienced. One other thing Marcy's driving directions to arrive were spot on, I initially tried to use GPS and ended up,up the road wondering around. FYI follow her instructions and keep your eyes peeled for the Aventura Akumal sign and you'll be there in no time Thanks again Dan"

  • Very Welcoming

    "We spent a week at Casa Gatos. Dave and Dan were very welcoming. The condo is very private and secluded. The grounds as well as the condo were very clean and well tended. You get a homey feeling because of the comfortable setting but also because of the contact with all of the neighbors. Highly recommended. The condo is next to Yal Ku. Unless you enjoy walking you should rent a car because it is a long walk to the main area of town."
