Recent Akumal reviews

  • 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!"

  • 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."

  • Very Welcoming

    "We spent a week at Casa Gatos. Dave and Dan were very welcoming. The condo is very private and secluded. The grounds as well as the condo were very clean and well tended. You get a homey feeling because of the comfortable setting but also because of the contact with all of the neighbors. Highly recommended. The condo is next to Yal Ku. Unless you enjoy walking you should rent a car because it is a long walk to the main area of town."

  • Clean, comfortable, great value.

    "We enjoyed our stay, the condo was well kept, central to everywhere we wanted to be. The beach was nice and we had a great view. Every thing we needed in the kitchen was there. I don't go in the ocean much so the only drawback would be for people who wanted to go in, it was rocky, but we already knew that. Overall I it was a great place and when I return to Mexico I will check availability on this condo first. I would like to thank the owner and staff for a wonderful stay."
