Relax in Akumal by staying in this beautiful beach front condo...
Enjoy a relaxing vacation on the beautiful, white sandy beach of Half Moon Bay in Akumal ("Place of the Turtle" in the Mayan language). Walk out your patio door and be directly on the beach. This two-bedroom/two-bath unit of 1,125 square feet includes new appliances as well as new air conditioning and ceiling fans, although tropical breezes often make these unnecessary. The condo has been renovated recently with all new tile floors, newly painted rooms, curtains, and upholstered sofa cushions. The open floor plan includes large windows on three sides of the living room and is decorated with live tropical plants and palms and Mexican artifacts. The Caribbean Sea can be viewed from all rooms.
The master bedroom (king-sized bed) and guest room (two twin-sized beds) both have ample closet space. Daily maid service is available, and beach towels are provided. Cell phone and wireless Internet service are available, so bring your cell and laptop, if you wish. The condo also has a TV, DVD player, and iPod docking station.
Akumal is one of the most tranquil places of the Mayan Riviera, a paradise of marine life ideal for nature and calm diving and snorkeling lovers, this is a spectacular and almost virgin place for snorkeling, there are all kinds of fish and of course you must carry your snorkel equipment to be able to enjoy its beauty.
Akumal faces one of the biggest reefs of the world and you will also find hundreds of caverns, caves and underground rivers to the delight of divers, who come from all over the world to enjoy their vast marine life.
You can also visit a few steps away from the inlet Yalku, known as the lagoon.
Akumal is a quiet, residential beach side community located about 50 miles south of the Cancun Airport on a well-paved highway. This small town and the nearby area offer many fine restaurants and plenty of opportunities for snorkeling, diving, swimming, caving, biking, bird watching, or just plain relaxing on the beach. That is the beauty of this place - you can enjoy many activities or simply relax on a beach chair under the palms.
El departamento es justo lo que se muestra en las fotos: acogedor y bien equipado. Excelente para viajar en familia!
La ubicación es muy buena: comercial mexicana a dos minutos caminando, centro comercial a la mano, calle comercial y acceso a la playa a 5 minutos caminando.
Mercedes y todo su equipo (Maria, Carmen, Marcelo) son amables y estan al servicio en todo momento.
We rent this nice appartement for 6 persons and we really enjoyed it. The pictures really represent what you get. The private balcony with the spa on the roof is amazing to spent some good time. There are A/C in each rooms, which was really appreciated.
Thanks, we had a lot of fun!
This is a lovely condo and it's location was ideal for our family. It was a short walk to Playa del Carmen's 5th Avenue and located close to a Walmart and Comerical Mexicana for groceries. We called Mercedes upon our arrival at the airport and set up a designated time to meet at the condo with Maria our host. Maria provided us with a tour of the condo and 2 sets of keys along with a map of the area. We had a small problem when a fuse went out in the condo, but Mercedes was very responsive and set a maintenance man to resolve the issue within 15 minutes. Great service!
As the other reviewers pointed out, the two bedrooms with the sliding doors in the back face a club and the music was very loud at night. Overall my family had a pleasant experience at the condo and we would definitely stay again. We felt very safe at this condo and it is also a good option for families traveling with children.
We would definitely stay here again and would recommend staying here! Thanks!
We had a fabulous stay at this beautiful house for a week. It is a short walk from the beach which our 5-year-old could do easily. There is also a pool in a park right across the street which the kids also loved. It is walking distance to shopping and to the main Quinta Avenida. We had one incident of a leaking dishwasher, but through Mercedes, it was fixed immediately. Mercedes was super-helpful about arranging excursions and also transportation to and from the airport.
Mercedes and her staff were great. The condo was in a perfect location. If I were to go back to Playa, I would definitely stay at this condo or one of Mercedes others. Great experience.
Small pool that was perfect on sunny afternoons. Cold AC! Perfect!
Fantastic location and a lovely place! We had access to everything we needed to enjoy a stay in Akumal: groceries, restaurants, rental gear, fully stocked kitchen. Mercedes was a very helpful host, quickly responding to any questions we had during the planning stages, right up to our arrival.
This condo was wonderful overall and perfect for our family. My wife and I stayed there very comfortably for a week with my son and his pregnant wife. Mercedes and her team were very good about helping us out with any difficulties. A couple of small things to be aware of: there was a problem with the AC in the second bedroom on our last two nights, and the burners on the stove are peculiar--there are simmer, medium, and high flame burners, but no burner that has an adjustable level, so if you cook at home you have to do some pan shifting. I'd never encountered a set-up like that before and we had to discover it by trial and error. We tried the Weber grill out back one night, and though there was plenty of propane the feed was poor so the flame never got beyond low, so we cooked inside instead. We also had a small difficulty with the security box (safe) in the master bedroom. One time when we shut it, the batteries in the door popped out and the electronic keypad would not function--it happened on a Saturday night, but luckily we did not need my wife's jewelry or wallet or our passports that day or the next two days--and Mercedes and her team were able to fix it for us pretty readily on Monday. Other than those minor glitches, we had a very enjoyable stay: the pool and hot tubs right outside our condo were well kept and very enjoyable and never crowded; we always found lounges available around the pool; the beach is lovely and very close; we were right off La Quinta, which meant we were close to great places to eat and shop and the avenue was perfect (and beautifully shaded!) for our early morning run. We highly recommend Negromaro, just around the corner, for breakfast--we ate there twice and our waiter, Pedro, was so lovely to us. For dinner, don't miss Plank--which was just a terrific experience all around (we had my wife's last night birthday celebration there and the food was first rate and the wait staff were lovely--singing a rousing chorus of Mexican birthday wishes to her); we also very much recommend Yaxche on the Avenida--have the desserts! Also, if you do rent a car, the condo has very convenient gated parking (24 attendant) under the building (convenient stairs or elevator up to your condo). We had great day trips to Tulum; the snorkeling water park Xel-Ha, which is run so beautifully and is all included with really good food in its restaurants for all three meals; and we took the ferry to Cozumel and rented scooters very cheap for a fun ride around the island. We had a terrific time, we would go back, and we would stay in one of the properties Mercedes and her team handles.
Es una habitación muy bien ubicada en el corazón de Playa del Carmen cerca de la playa y de todos los restaurantes y bares, a pesar de ésto, no se escucha el ruido y se puede descansar muy bien. También estaba limpia y la cama muy cómoda. En general tuvimos unas vacaciones fantásticas!
We had a great stay in this apartment. It is big, clean, and comfortable. We were three couples and it was perfect, it even had an extra room with a single bed that we didn't use. The location is perfect: very central but not noisy. I would happily stay there again. Thanks!
Wonderful apartment! We loved the proximity to the beach and all the restaurants on 5th Avenue.
If you plan any excursions, bus companies will usually pick you up at the Palacio Municipal, which is also across the street.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
