  • Loved the Place!

    "Everything was great! The condo was perfect, the view was perfect, and the employees were very nice. I loved that we got the condo cleaned daily, taking care of all the sand we would bring in from the beach. The hammocks on the porch were a great addition. The restaurant close to the condo had enough choices, that we ate there at least 3 times. Delicious and nicely priced. The shops right there by the restaurant were also nicely priced compared to the city shopping. I do wish I would have brought water shoes though. The rocks on the beach were plenty, but weren't a problem once we were farther out in the water to snorkel. We had rented a car, allowing us to visit the ruins of Tulum, and party in the city of Tulum. It was an amazing vacation! I wouldn't hesitate to book again with Del Sol."

  • Happy place by the ocean

    "Every time my wife and I think about our stay in Akumal we smile. We had a very nice stay. The accommodations were perfect for our group of 5. We were two couples and my mom. My mom has dietary restrictions so we cooked everyday. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed to cook our own meals. Our neighbors commented that it always smell so wonderful on our side of the complex. We bought groceries at the Soriana in Playa. The unit was clean and well maintained, the grounds were also very clean. We appreciated the maid service, a small daily tip kept her happy the whole week. We felt safe and secure. From the condo we made excursions to Chichenitza, Coba and Tolum. We also went shopping at Playa and swam with the Turtles at the public beach in Akumal. At night the sound of the ocean and the wind lulled us to sleep. We can't wait to go back!"

  • Great location on the beach

    "We had a great time at Casa Palapa in August 2016. Prior to staying at the property, my biggest reservation was that the owner didn't offer online booking through VRBO's checkout so I wasn't eligible for the "Book with Confidence Guarantee." The pricing seemed competitive for the area, so I felt uneasy about not having the guarantee in this age of scams, but we went forward anyway. Thankfully everything was as pictured and as described with only positive surprises. The home is super clean (the cleaning woman comes every morning but Sunday and spends hours), and the view is amazing! It felt like our own private beach and we did not have any issues with excessive seaweed in August. Snorkeling was great directly in front of the house. The man who takes care of the grounds raked the sand every morning and cut us fresh coconuts to drink from the beautiful grove of coconut trees that surprised us as being the front yard of the house. We didn't see any turtles, but saw tracks in the morning of where some came up to the house overnight. We paid $75 for Pio's wife Luz to cook us dinner the first night. We had 5 adults, and she gave enough food (chicken, cauliflower, rice, veggies, pico and guac for appetizer) for 10 and it was tasty. Unfortunately the fridge didn't feel reliable enough to hold leftovers (I think we lost power one night possibly). My ONLY complaint is really for Mexico in August. It's hot, so the house got very warm and the only place to find relief is in the breezy Palapa (very comfortable there) or the air conditioned upstairs bedrooms. The owner mentioned he is considering putting in a 1st floor A/C unit. If that happens, zero complaints on the house. We may be back some day!"

  • 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."
