  • Great Location

    "We stayed four nights, a long girls weekend and were treated so nice by everyone. I would go back anytime! It was all it said it would be. Clean, right on the beach we could snorkel from the beach that is steps away. The area is off the beaten path which was just right for us. Great restaurants nearby, beautiful beach and scenery. Highly recommend this place since they treat you so nice."

  • Amazing stay at La Bahia in Akumal

    "We had just an amazing time stay! Really, I can't say we had anything negative to say about the place or our trip. The place was spacious, and had all the amenities we could possibly ask for. We were even able to watch football on Sunday morning! The weather turned out perfect (although we were a bit concerned about hurricane Matthew's path days before leaving). We maybe had ten minutes of rain the whole trip! The staff at La Bahia were just awesome; they were helpful and available for whatever we needed. We were there with a couple who had been to Akumal and stayed at La Bahia before (they stayed in #3 both times), so it was nice having them to guide us around Akumal and show us all the spots. But really it's an easy place to navigate. We were able to rent bikes right there at La Bahia, and they were a perfect way to get around. The staff was always available to put air in the tires or fix any issues we had, which we did not. We did a lot of the touristy things: snorkeled and spent time at Akumal Bay, Coba, Playa Del Carmen, Tulum Ruins, and Ya Kul. Absolutely loved the restaurant La Buena Vida (just a short bike ride or walk from La Bahia), and spent a lot of time there. We had a number of meals there also, all very good! La Lunita, a short ride/walk the other direction was also very, very good. Ya Kul was a phenomenal snorkeling spot, and it's just a short ride away also. But really, snorkeling in front of La Bahia was as good as any place I've been to, lot of coral, fish, and clear water. Half moon bay is just gorgeous and unmatched at sunrise. We were also able to see plenty of turtles in Akumal bay (a mile or so away), and the beach there is the best I've seen, ever. We have been to both Jamaica and the Dominican (Punta Cana), but I would much rather return to Akumal. It's an amazing little pocket of paradise and much more affordable than a resort!"

  • Amazing Condo! Incredible views!

    "Wow -- this place was truly amazing! The pictures do not do it justice. This condo has the best view of any in half moon bay. We were debating this place or a condo on the first floor by the pool. I am so glad we rented this one. The view was unbeatable. I don't think I've had a better view at any other place I've ever stayed at. The condo was perfect. It had all of the modern amenities but still retained it's local charm. It was great to have filtered water -- had no issues drinking that all week. Air conditioning was great. The onsite staff was great -- very helpful. It was also nice that half moon bay is a bit away from Akumal. Akumal gets very crowded during the day with all the tourists coming to see the turtles. But half moon bay stayed very mellow and not crowded at all. It is on the 4th floor (which make the views great) -- so there is a walk up the stairs. But totally worth it. And most of the time we needed to work off lunch or dinner anyway. And the pool was great for the kids. It looked small in the pictures, but the size was perfect. One of the best pools of any place on the bay. I'd recommend a car - we rented one and were glad we did. Made it easy to get around and there was plenty of parking. Great place! Great staff! Amazing views! You can't go wrong here"

  • Beautiful views of the ocean in a private setting

    "Martin's condo is everything he says it is. We stayed with another couple for 7 nights. It was my second time there and their first. The views are absolutely stunning and the property is very well kept. Marty and the manager will make sure they can do anything to accommodate your stay and the other employees of La Iguana become your friends. We made most of our meals in the condo so the kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils. The fresh water was in constant supply which was also nice for our weary friends. Our favorite things to do in Akumal was snorkeling in Yal Kul lagoon (a 5 min walk from the condo), dinner at Del Pescador near Turtle Bay and happy hour at La Buena Vida where you can have drinks and eat while laying in a hammock right on the beach. Just south of Akumal you will find beautiful beaches and wonderful cenotes everywhere you go. Some may question being on the north end of half moon bay but please don't. At La Iguana you aren't far from Akumal but get much more peace and quiet than the resorts and places closer to town will offer. If you are adventurous skip renting a car and just rent bikes for 5 dollars a day and take collectivos to go to tulum. It's faster to ride a bike to town than take a car in my opinion, lol. VEA ATV tours was a major highlight of this vacation so look into it if you like atving through the jungle! Thanks again Marty for a fabulous time!"
