Recent Akumal reviews

  • Excellent experience - good place for large family

    "We had a great time at Villa Gaugin for our 10 day trip in April 2016, and everything was just as we hoped. This would be a great choice especially if you have a large family or group and are into the contemporary design of the house and furnishings vs. more typical palapa-style rentals. - The house is extremely spacious (actually even bigger than it seems in the photos). There was a LOT of room for our 9 guests, two couples and 5 kids, and it would certainly not have felt crowded at all to have another couple guests. - The location is perfect for snorkeling into the Yal Ku lagoon -- no need to walk or drive and there are restaurants and activities nearby. - The water directly in front of the house was also fairly well protected so it was usually calm enough for swimming except in very high winds -The pool was always nice and is sized well for kids to play in. - The kitchen is well set up and has a higher grade of materials than many others. We did our own cooking and it all worked well. - The house was kept very clean by the on-site caretakers. - The cell phone coverage and wifi at the house is excellent, much better than I have come to expect after four or five trips to this area in recent years."

  • Very well maintained. Excellent location. Stylish decorations and appliances

    "This is the nicest Condo we have rented so far through VRBO. I highly recommend it. The managers at TAO were helpful and courteous. The location on the first floor is ideal for people with mobility limitations, although the building itself has an elevator to other units. The location on the first floor doesn't compromise privacy at all. The community itself is designed in harmony with nature. The pool is very close by. Perfectly located between X-caret and Xel-ha for those interested in visiting the parks."

  • Wonderful week with family and friends at Laguna Encantada

    "The house and property at Laguna Encantada were fantastic - matched or exceeded all expectations set by the pictures and description. The house itself is very large, well appointed, maintained, and designed, and had a beautiful pool surrounded by a well landscaped yard. We saw iguanas, a coatimundi, an agouti, and numerous bats on the property - all very cool. The access to the trails leading to the lagoon made for a unique feature and we enjoyed walking them at all hours of the day. The on site caretakers - Rosenburg and Maria Luz were definitely a high point as well - top quality service from breakfast and meal service through housekeeping and help with general directions and questions. I'd recommend this property without question. The one item I'd suggest would be to add stereo speakers inside the house, rather than only on the exterior patio as is currently the case. Other than that, everything was great, and we loved the location - five minutes to the Akumal Playa area."

  • Excellent location, amenities, and service!

    "Our family of four (including 2 children ages 6 and 8) spent 8 relaxing days enjoying the patio, pool, neighbors, view, and the sound of the waves from Mi Casa Del Mar A1. Staying on the first floor turned out to be perfect for our family; unlike in years past where we stayed on higher floors, the 1st floor location saved us from lugging all of our stuff up and down the stairs each time the girls wanted to swim or feed the iguanas. The condo was very comfortable. It included a "catch-all" closet with items like lifejackets for the girls...a huge convenience for us. The internet worked well enough for us to stream videos for the girls in the late evenings. The kitchen was well stocked, the beds were comfy, and the ACs worked great. The staff was attentive and responsive as usual - a small crack developed in the coffee pot and, without us pointing it out, they replaced it. We left out a small christmas tree with the battery pack open (we were planning on going to the store to get batteries) and Alex showed up the same day with a new pack of batteries for us. Bottom line, the service was amazing. We visited all of our regular haunts, which were in easy walking distance from the condo...La Buena Vida (we walked there by road and shoreline...so fun!), Lucy's/Turtle Bay Bakery, and Lol-ha. Our "first time" visits included Xelha (a VERY clean and well-run operation...we had a great time), the Tulum ruins and Yal-Ku lagoon (wow!!). The girls were both old enough to enjoy snorkeling so we spent several mornings swimming with the wildlife in the bay (countless turtles, varied fish, stingray, etc). We even saw a barracuda at Xelha...yikes!! We bought a basketball and spent several afternoons playing on the Akumal court. Hans was a great host, quick to respond to questions leading up to our visit, and very accommodating with our requests. We visit Akumal every couple of years and always stay at Mi Casa Del Mar (because of location and amenities). This was our first year to rent A1 but, given our experience, we plan on renting Hans' condo again."
