Recent Akumal reviews

  • 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."

  • Perfect family vacation

    "My family and I had a terrific time in Akumal at this lovely condo at Playa Caribe. Not only was the condo lovely and perfect for our family, the staff was incredibly kind and helpful. The condo has two great-sized bedrooms and bathrooms and was comfortable for three adults and two children. Our four-year-old absolutely loved the pool, so much so that we could hardly get him out of it each evening. The area is quiet and beautiful, but just a short golf cart ride or walk to so much activity including cute stores, restaurants and excursions! Each day, we did one excursion in the morning and then spent the afternoon near the condo at the pool, beach or Buena Vida, the local beach restaurant near the condo. The lagoon was beautiful, but swimming with the turtles in Akumal Bay was definitely the highlight. A close second was the guided tour of the Cenote Santa Cruz. This was a vacation we will always remember!"

  • Perfect, quiet location for R & R

    "My girlfriend and I came here to celebrate finishing grad school, looking for a peaceful, quiet place to do absolutely nothing but sit, stare, drink beer, sunbathe and relax--we got exactly what we needed! The condo was just as pictured, if not better, and far enough away from town to be quiet and unspoiled by crowds, but close enough to walk into town. There's a little grocery about 1/4 mile up the way to get beer, some supplies, and it's about a mile or so into the main square to the full grocery store. It was pretty windy the whole week we were there (1/12-1/17), but still warm and wonderful. Never had to use the AC. Watching the pelicans graze low over the ocean was one of my favorite things. Buena Vida restaurant (famous for its bar swings) was about 1/3 mile up the road (maybe less) and our favorite for tacos each night. The pools aren't heated, so unfortunately it was a bit too chilly to use them when it wasn't above 80 degrees, but the last day was warm enough to dip in for a minute. Waking up to this view and hearing the ocean all night was an amazing experience and I'm already plotting how I can go back! Thanks Doreen, for giving us just what we needed after a stressful 3 years!"

  • My Favorite Place to Stay in Akumal

    "I have stayed at Del Sol Beachfront for many years, it is so beautiful! You can't find a better ocean front view. It is so peaceful , always clean and the staff is awesome! The best food around is just down the beach at La Buena Vida."
