  • Perfect Paradise

    "We vacationed here as a family of four with a 20 year old and a 17 year old. We all absolutely loved the condo and the town of Akumal. It was by far our favorite vacation! We did something different everyday. We swam with the turtles, snorkels at Aku Lagoon, went swimming in a cenote, visited the ruins and more. The restaurants in Akumal are delicious and affordable. The condo is decorated wonderfully, clean and comfortable. The condo staff was so helpful and the maid service was a treat! Can't wait to go back there!"

  • Would visit again!

    "In the past few times our family went to Akumal, we stayed at Las Casitas but couldn't book a unit this time. We picked Casa Solymar based on the reviews - it looked classy and had three bedrooms and was walking distance to the main beach. The villa was a little set back from the road and had a lush garden. It was spacious with a great view, and everything was clean. The kitchen was well stocked and even had some oil and spices. The pool was a lot bigger than we thought, a great size for our family. We swam in it a few times a day. It was clean and not over-chlorinated. The villa provided an electric cart which was helpful when we made several trips to the grocery store or decided to go to Yal-ku which was a long walk away. We didn't think it was such a plus point when making our reservation, but it was really a nice convenience. The bedrooms upstairs were a little warm in late March. My bedroom had a faulty AC unit and never cooled down. When I contacted the manager, Monica Estrada, she sent someone to look at it right away, and the AC was replaced that very day. Monica was very helpful. Due to passport issues, I had to arrive two days later than my family and she arranged additional airport transfer. Every time I emailed her, I received a reply right away. Please be aware that the wifi connection doesn't reach the upstairs bedrooms. The beach is very rocky so you can't go swimming there. The view, though, is spectacular. On very windy days, the salt spray can get 100 ft right up to the windows. When we stayed at Las Casitas in the past, we used to tip the housekeeper every day whatever we liked. Here at Casa Solymar, the guest book said to tip the housekeeper and gardener 15% of the cost of the rental. We also felt that being asked to tip the gardener is quite unusual. Shouldn't the maintenance of the pool and garden be factored into the cost of the rental? The villa management should have asked for the rental + 15% upfront instead. The tipping request and amount felt like a hidden fee. Tipping should be optional. We did tip the staff because we wanted to, but didn't tip the 15% and felt guilty that they might not have been paid their fair share. But paying them is the responsibility of the management, not the guests. All said and done, Casa Solymar is a solid five stars and I would go back for a visit. Thank you, Monica, for making our stay a lovely one."

  • Great Couples Vacation

    "Three couples in our early 60's spent 10 lovely days at Casa Palapa. The house is exactly as pictured--no surprises! The beach is beautiful, white sand with great walking in either direction. Water was the perfect Riviera Maya turquoise we have come to love. Had only one late afternoon and evening of rain the whole time. Grilled out every night on the outdoor patio! Property manager Pio was very helpful and his wife Luz cooked us an amazing Mayan meal which we snacked from for two days after! Norma and Eduardo kept the house and grounds immaculately! We snorkeled, swam, walked, shopped, people watched and relaxed in the friendly yet secluded atmosphere. Great food and drink at The Beached Bikini just steps from the house. Only wish there had been a few more places within walking distance to dine. We didn't rent a car but maybe should have as driving around would have been very simple. Can't recommend the house or location enough!"

  • Tranquil Paradise

    "My husband, our yorkie and I spent 16 fun filled days at Kassie & Robs condo. It was everything we had hoped for. The panoramic view was beautiful and to be on the ground floor was perfect. The snorkeling in Half Moon Bay, Akumal Bay and Yalku was awesome. It was refreshing to see such healthy vibrant reefs filled with abundant sea life. The staff were very accomodating, polite and eager to please. It was extremely humid during our stay, so the airconditioning ensured a comfortable place to get cooled off. This is our 3rd visit to Akumal. We enjoy this quaint little town and have always felt very safe. We look forward to returning again and hope that this adorable condo is available. Kassie & Rob were fantastic during the entire process of arranging this get away. Many thanks :)"
