Beautiful and tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples who stayed for one week in this condo. It was very spacious and comfortable. Everyone was very nice and accommodating. It was a refreshing break after one week in Playa Del Carmen! If you are looking for a place to get-away-from-it-all, this is it!

What a fantastic and very comfortable location!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing condo, so warm and inviting, and extremely comfortable! Beds were excellent! The kitchen is very well stocked, you can cook all your favorites...or just pop next door to La Lunita for fabulous food and drinks! Oh, the aromas wafting through the air will be hard to resist! Snorkling, while we were there, was so great~ We happened to enjoy many days of perfectly flat water, crystal clear! It can't get much better than this!

Great Holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this great condo with one other couple and there was plenty of room for the four of us. We each had our own room and bathroom. The living area and kitchen were also very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The pool was right outside with the beach just beyond that. The beach was private, great snorkelling and peaceful. We spent most of our time on our beach - realxing, reading, sleeping, star gazing at night - it was just what we needed. The only downfalls was being so close to the resteraunt - it was noisy in the evenings in particular and families with young children would be very loud in the pool very early in the morning. We were a little surprised at the distance to the town of Akumal though the walking did us good.

Overall it was a great experience and one we would recommend to anyone and the hosts were very helpful with information and answering questions.

Akumal is a quiet, very private, residential community of low-rise condos and private villas generously spaced out along the beach, with many fine restaurants and world renowned walk-off-the-beach snorkeling and diving. Local condo management is onsite to assure continued quality throughout your stay.

Here, just an hour drive straight south on a well paved road from Cancun, you escape the hustle and bustle, kick off your shoes, don your swim suit, and plunge into the turquoise Caribbean Sea. The atmosphere is very relaxed. Walk bare-footed in T shirt and shorts next door to a beachfront restaurant for fabulous fajitas and a margarita if you like. All the local restaurants in Akumal treat their water making the dining completely safe as well as delicious.

Other Activities: diving in cenotes, snorkeling & deep sea fishing, great shopping & restaurants, night life, fitness gym, yoga classes and massage, Mayan culture.
