  • Magnificent Condo and 2nd time back!

    "We just loved this condo so much we came back exactly one year later for another visit. The amazing views, the amazing staff, the locals too... all amazing. We even got to watch baby turtles leave there nest and run to the ocean! This condo is great for families, couples or a friend group getaway. If your looking for a quiet, spacious, relaxing stay in a beautiful hidden gem of a beachtown, this is definitely the place!"

  • Fabulous rental - book it!

    "What a beautiful place! So much space - spectacular views - mega comfortable. Truly enjoyed our stay. Three couples who had so much room we never got in each others way! Can't think of anything that we needed that wasn't there! Loved the pool and the birding is fabulous (esp early morning on the upper decks). It's quite fun and easy to walk to restaurants at night and beach during the day. (lots of beach chairs included!) The owner, Rosemary was great - very responsive and helpful. And wait until you meet dynamo Maria! Don't hesitate to book this one if there is an opening. I think we lucked out with our dates as this ones calendar fills in pretty quickly (for good reason). The great thing about Akumal is that it is compact, safe and easy to navigate but close to a variety of great excursions to ruins and cenotes Enjoy!"

  • The perfect getaway

    "I booked our stay based soley on the previous reviews; everyone had such great things to say about their own visits that I was confident we (my boyfriend and I) would have a great time as well. Great is an understatement...we have been home 3 days now and I'm already thinking about when we can make a return visit. I had expectations of a relaxing beach side vacation, but was not prepared for how friendly everyone was--staff, locals, and fellow travelers alike, and the food! We ate at a different place each night and were never disappointed, Turtle Bay Cafe and Lol-Haa, I think are my favorite though. The room was beautiful and the beds are super comfortable, and Agostin, the property manager was very helpful with all of our questions."

  • 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."
