Recent Akumal reviews

  • Beautiful, spacious and comfy

    "Beautifully decorated and furnished, this condo was spacious and clean. I would recommend renting a car if you are more than 2 people, so that you can comfortably travel up and down the road, enjoying local beaches, restaurants and shops. We rented bikes one day and really enjoyed thoroughly touring the area. This was our first stop on a whirlwind tour of the Mayan Riviera and we were lucky to have great advice from the Manager. He was helpful and easy with booking arrangements and ironing out any kinks that came up. We felt very safe and cared for."

  • Playa Caribe #5 is fanatastic!

    "Playa Caribe #5 is a beautiful, well equipped and maintained accommodation on Half Moon Bay. We recently spent a week there and Annie is very easy to work with and has so much information to offer to make your stay in the Akumal area that much more enjoyable.The staff is very helpful and Agustin, the on site property manager, is tremendous. We had a great trip! We were able to snorkel everyday. We saw turtles, manta ray, sting ray, and many beautiful fish!The first 5 minutes we went out we saw a sting ray who spooked my daughter a little. The 2nd day the water was rough, so we went to Yal Ku lagoon which was a good place to get Delilah more comfortable in the water. We rented bikes right at Playa Caribe which was fun too! One day we went to Akumal bay and snorkeled. Lots of tourists and turtles! I'm glad they are trying to protect that area because it is crowded. We also went to Cenotes Rancho Santa Cruz...highly recommend! It was private, beautiful, and close to Playa Caribe. The rest of the days the ocean was much calmer and we snorkeled out front. A turtle built a nest right in front of the condo while we were there! Of course it was the one night I didn't wake up constantly to see if there were any turtles. A lady staying there saw it and of course took pictures with her flash....upsetting. We also saw a lady rip off one of those beautiful coral leafs! 😢 As far as local restaurants we liked La Buena Vida the best, as well as La Cueva de la Pescadora. Thanks for a great trip and information!"

  • Great Spot in Akumal

    "My party of 9 adults enjoyed a week at this casa and the place exceeded our expectations. The home was easy to get to and the town of Akumal was less than a 5 minute drive when provisions were needed. The staff was accommodating. The casa is well appointed and stocked to provide everything a family or large party could need for an enjoyable vacation. We cooked several nights and the large kitchen accommodated many cooks in the kitchen. We BBQed a few times out by the pool overlooking the ocean which is always a treat and we also used the chef service that was arranged by the local staff and were pleased with the food, communication, and convenience. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all comfortable and clean. The view from the decks are amazing and one can kill a day or three without ever leaving the property. The walk to Akumal for snorkeling, lunch, or drinks is about 30 minutes and a nice beach walk. We felt very safe during our stay as the night security guard introduced himself on the first day. I would highly recommend this property to a large group or a few families looking for a casa in the Akumal area. I have stayed in many a vacation home and this one ranks up towards the top. The kitchen was the best stocked I have had the pleasure of cooking in while abroad. A great time was had by our party."

  • Perfect spot for our family

    "We stayed at the condo March 30 - April 7, 2016. We are a family of 5 with 3 boys 9 and under. This was our first time renting through VRBO and our first time travelling to Mexico. We had a fabulous time - and would recommend it to everyone. Owners - Peggy was super helpful with answers to our questions before we booked and with maps and lots of information after we booked. While we were there, they were doing some work on the septic system in an adjacent building - Peggy was right on top of it, notifying us that it was going on and asked us to let her know if it interfered with our vacation (which it didn't). Condo amenities - the condo itself was well equipped with everything we needed - basic spices for cooking, along with pots, pans, dishes, bottled water, etc.; beach towels and shower towels; wifi; bedding (although we brought a small blow-up mattress for our youngest child, so he could sleep in the same room as his brothers, rather than on the couch), etc.. The pools were lots of fun and my boys spent at least some of every day in them. For the most part, we had the pools to ourselves, which was also very nice. The grounds are kept very neat and tidy and everyone was friendly and helpful. Location - close enough to the amenities in Akumal (grocery, dive shop, souvenirs, etc.), but far enough away that we didn't have to deal with the crowds of people coming in to see the turtles (unless we were going to see them ourselves - but go early or late in the day ... a lot less people). Plus, able to walk 2 minutes to Yal-Ku for snorkelling (a huge highlight!!). Also easy driving distance to Aktun Chen (kids LOVED the zip lining, cave walk and cenote); Coba and Tulum; Xel-Ha (although we didn't go - too much other stuff to see and do). Finally, I can't talk about the location, without mentioning the snorkeling right outside your door. Fantastic! My kids were new to snorkeling, but had no problems exploring the reefs in Half Moon Bay. Not as many fish as Yal-Ku, but lots of very interesting coral formations and other see creatures. The rocky shore is also lots of fun to explore. Overall, we had a fantastic time and would not hesitate in coming back!!"
