  • Amazing Condo! Incredible views!

    "Wow -- this place was truly amazing! The pictures do not do it justice. This condo has the best view of any in half moon bay. We were debating this place or a condo on the first floor by the pool. I am so glad we rented this one. The view was unbeatable. I don't think I've had a better view at any other place I've ever stayed at. The condo was perfect. It had all of the modern amenities but still retained it's local charm. It was great to have filtered water -- had no issues drinking that all week. Air conditioning was great. The onsite staff was great -- very helpful. It was also nice that half moon bay is a bit away from Akumal. Akumal gets very crowded during the day with all the tourists coming to see the turtles. But half moon bay stayed very mellow and not crowded at all. It is on the 4th floor (which make the views great) -- so there is a walk up the stairs. But totally worth it. And most of the time we needed to work off lunch or dinner anyway. And the pool was great for the kids. It looked small in the pictures, but the size was perfect. One of the best pools of any place on the bay. I'd recommend a car - we rented one and were glad we did. Made it easy to get around and there was plenty of parking. Great place! Great staff! Amazing views! You can't go wrong here"

  • Trustworthy and compassionate owner

    "This review for Dos Besos, admittedly, is not about the property but the integrity and compassion exuded by its owner, Willem. Three months ago, my friends and I rented the home for a week in March. For my husband and I, this was meant to be a final "Hoorah!" before trying to start a family. Given the news of Zika, I no longer felt comfortable traveling to Mexico. With 2.5 weeks until our arrival, I emailed Willem and explained our situation. He was compassionate and understanding. What's more, he immediately refunded our full deposit! If you at all feel anxious or worried about renting a home from someone you don't know, rest assured that Willem is a person of integrity! We can't wait to make reservations (fingers crossed) in the coming year!"

  • Beautiful views of the ocean in a private setting

    "Martin's condo is everything he says it is. We stayed with another couple for 7 nights. It was my second time there and their first. The views are absolutely stunning and the property is very well kept. Marty and the manager will make sure they can do anything to accommodate your stay and the other employees of La Iguana become your friends. We made most of our meals in the condo so the kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils. The fresh water was in constant supply which was also nice for our weary friends. Our favorite things to do in Akumal was snorkeling in Yal Kul lagoon (a 5 min walk from the condo), dinner at Del Pescador near Turtle Bay and happy hour at La Buena Vida where you can have drinks and eat while laying in a hammock right on the beach. Just south of Akumal you will find beautiful beaches and wonderful cenotes everywhere you go. Some may question being on the north end of half moon bay but please don't. At La Iguana you aren't far from Akumal but get much more peace and quiet than the resorts and places closer to town will offer. If you are adventurous skip renting a car and just rent bikes for 5 dollars a day and take collectivos to go to tulum. It's faster to ride a bike to town than take a car in my opinion, lol. VEA ATV tours was a major highlight of this vacation so look into it if you like atving through the jungle! Thanks again Marty for a fabulous time!"

  • Wonderful vacation with family!

    "We booked the house for my family of 11 (four couples, three children ages 1, 2, and 5 y/o) and had a really lovely time. The location was excellent; set on a quiet street just off the beach but a relatively easy walk into main shopping streets. The beach is clean and there was more than enough room for us to take the provided beach chairs and spread out. The water was safe enough for the older children to swim and although several days had semi-rough surf, the beach slopes out so gradually that they could easily get beyond the breakers. Lots of people walking along the waveline but nothing intrusive. During the registration process, Matt and Deborah did a fantastic time accommodating a few scheduling changes and being very responsive. We arrived in two groups and Deborah met the first right away. Some of us used the recommended transportation shuttle and they were on time, easy to find, and comfortable. It was more difficult to know who to call once we arrived and several of the provided numbers went to message machines that weren't returned or just rang. When we did get Deborah's cell number, however, she was very responsive and also answered emails quickly. I would recommend confirming those contact points early on. The house itself is fairly dated, or at least used, and could use updating and some repairs. In general, things were in good working order although the hot tub was non-functional (likely for months per the guest book) and the BBQ would not stay lit for any extended period of time. We went out a purchased additional glasses and a few other utensils but the deficiencies were quite minor. We cooked a majority of our meals and took taxis to buy food after arrival. I would recommend using the offered service for food to be purchased ahead of time. We did not do so and regretted it. Having a pool at the house was a major plus and a great transitional spot. For whatever reason, the pool cleaner came daily for the first few days but did not show up for the last several days. Overall, I would recommend the house very much and we will certainly be returning to the neighborhood again. Excellent for families and a great introduction to the area."
