Recent Akumal reviews

  • 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."

  • Fabulous condo!

    "What a pleasant, relaxing place to stay! The condo is super well-equipped and just beautiful. I was sad to leave! Contrary to some other reviews, I felt the internet was fine, the noise level was low to none (I could hear the ocean waves crashing --- that was a great surprise!), the decorations were fine, and overall it was the perfect place to relax and unwind. There was also plenty of room for entertaining. My friends who live in the area referred to it as my "castle." I am so pleased with this location and will choose it again for a return trip to the Akumal area."

  • 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!"

  • Outstanding Stay at a Beautiful Location

    "This condo is one of the best on Half Moon Bay. Has everything one needs for a great stay. This is not my first stay at this condo (have stayed at least 3 other times) but I am always pleasantly reminded how great the décor is and the view. I will also say that the Staff that manages and cares for La Bahia is the best. This trip the Security Guard asked if we wanted to be awakened at night if there was "turtle action" on the beach. We said yes and he faithfully came to get us no matter the time of night. As a result we saw turtle hatch and turtles laying eggs. Very pleasant and engaging young man and it was fun trying to learn enough Spanish to communicate with him. The owner of this condo is also fabulous to work with. Love the place, love the condo. Please do wear your life vests and snorkel with a buddy! Unfortunately while we were there an older gentleman staying at a different condo apparently had a medical issue and passed away while snorkeling. There were many good Samaritans that helped and the Staff at La Bahia did what they could as well, even though the person wasn't staying at La Bahia. It was a very difficult situation for the family and all of us on the beach when it occurred."
