  • Amazing!

    "Love! Love! Love!I have been to Akumal twice and stayed here both times! I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The privacy of being at the end of Half Moon Bay is exactly what my family and I were looking for! The view is amazing, and best reef snorkel spot in Akumal. The property is immaculately kept, great pool for cooling off after a long beach day, inside of unit is just beautiful and so comfortable. We have stayed a week each time and wished we could've stayed longer. Dianna is amazing to work with and highly recommend this condo."

  • Robinson Crusoe getaway

    "I was looking for a place off the grid, away from Tulum in the biosphere and I certainly found it at Xamach Dos. Even though I emailed for availability at the last minute, I received a reply withing 20 minutes. Management and staff could not have been more welcoming or accommodating. The majority of our stay, we had the beach and restaurant to ourselves. It was off season, after all. There is a choice of loungers and hammocks sprinkled throughout. We stayed at Casa Secreta which was perfectly situated for someone craving privacy: in the jungle, yet steps from the water. We had use of kayaks and snorkel gear if we so desired. The reef is within visible distance. Ancient Mayan ruins can be found across the street and the staff will be more than happy to recommend tours within the biosphere or excursions to Tulum. Yes, the road is bumpy and the journey there will take a while at 20 km/hr. You are on vacation: relax and enjoy the scenery! Do bring plenty of DEET free mosquito repellent ( a must for the entire Riviera Maya) and strong biodegradable sunblock or sunscreen. The food was great; always freshly prepared. The vibe is relaxed. If you live by a different beat, please visit something more in tune with you."

  • 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."

  • Doesn't get any better than this!

    "I travel south to the Maya Riviera about 2x/year and always rent a house on the water. This one has been my favorite so far. The location is outstanding, right between Akumal and Tulum and the lot is pretty private with a vacant one in between this home and Casa Soleada. The view cannot be beaten with a vast vista of Tankah Bay out the back, just steps to snorkeling, swimming or kayaking inside the reef. Weslin and Odalis were fantastic stewards making us feel right at home and respecting our desire for privacy. No need to eat out with this crew there to cook you the most delicious meals. The home is stocked to the nines so don't worry about water shoes, snorkeling gear, games or movies. You'll never regret booking Casa Playa Azul and I'll be back sooner than later!"
