  • Amazing stay at La Bahia in Akumal

    "We had just an amazing time stay! Really, I can't say we had anything negative to say about the place or our trip. The place was spacious, and had all the amenities we could possibly ask for. We were even able to watch football on Sunday morning! The weather turned out perfect (although we were a bit concerned about hurricane Matthew's path days before leaving). We maybe had ten minutes of rain the whole trip! The staff at La Bahia were just awesome; they were helpful and available for whatever we needed. We were there with a couple who had been to Akumal and stayed at La Bahia before (they stayed in #3 both times), so it was nice having them to guide us around Akumal and show us all the spots. But really it's an easy place to navigate. We were able to rent bikes right there at La Bahia, and they were a perfect way to get around. The staff was always available to put air in the tires or fix any issues we had, which we did not. We did a lot of the touristy things: snorkeled and spent time at Akumal Bay, Coba, Playa Del Carmen, Tulum Ruins, and Ya Kul. Absolutely loved the restaurant La Buena Vida (just a short bike ride or walk from La Bahia), and spent a lot of time there. We had a number of meals there also, all very good! La Lunita, a short ride/walk the other direction was also very, very good. Ya Kul was a phenomenal snorkeling spot, and it's just a short ride away also. But really, snorkeling in front of La Bahia was as good as any place I've been to, lot of coral, fish, and clear water. Half moon bay is just gorgeous and unmatched at sunrise. We were also able to see plenty of turtles in Akumal bay (a mile or so away), and the beach there is the best I've seen, ever. We have been to both Jamaica and the Dominican (Punta Cana), but I would much rather return to Akumal. It's an amazing little pocket of paradise and much more affordable than a resort!"

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • Paradise!

    "We just returned from our second trip staying in this beautiful condo and will defiantly return! Half Moon Bay is our favorite place to visit, with or without our children. We have visited several times and Doreen's condo is our first choice when traveling as a couple. You cannot beat the view and the best snorkeling with in feet of your door. The condo is well equipped, has everything we need and the staff is awesome. The maid took time to figure out our daily schedule and then adjusted hers which was so thoughtful. The grounds are beautiful and with two pools, you can always find a quiet spot to relax. Doreen is very responsive and a pleasure to work with! We highly recommend this beautiful property!!!"
