Thank you, Natasha, for your review and comments. I am sorry you had difficulty finding the villa. I will review my instructions. Most everyone finds them right away, as there is only ONE street in Akumal and I did say about 1/2 mile from entrance. The septic smell is actually the CENOTE on the other side of the road. Rotting vegetation tends to have an odor and when there is a north wind, like when you were here and during the winter months, the odor tends to flow towards the villas. You did come during HIGH SEASON when rates are highest. During the summer months rates drop drastically and tend to be more affordable. The entire Riviera Maya have high end resorts. The winter months can be very expensive for a lot of people.
I appreciate your constructive comments. They help to make improvements. All the best.
