We stayed at this condo from 2/9 until 2/14. Our reservation was originally scheduled to start 2/8 but there was a mix-up in the reservations and other plans were needed. The condo owner did an excellent job making alternative reservations for us. This worked out fantastically, a well done to the condo owner. The photos do not do the condo justice, it is much nicer than pictured. We spent the mornings drinking our coffee on the porch, second living space. The beds are very comfortable. The unit is very well stocked with the supplies needed. The view is fantastic, very calming and relaxing.
We ate half our meals in the condo and the other half in town. There is a local seafood restaurant in town. A simple menu but all the fare is excellently prepared. There are 2 local stores in Akumal, but there selection is limited so recommend you go to either Tulum or stop at the store half way up to Playa De Carmen. The eggs are fresh and taste great with some local sausage. A word of note, most of the stores stop selling beer at 2:00 PM on Sundays.
Snorkeling at Akumal Bay was great and we got to see sea turtles munching on the sea cabbage. We also snorkeled at the lagoon, it is in walking distance and admission is good for all day. We went on a Monday and it was not crowded at all.
The best time was spent lounging outside the condo, enjoying the sun and the sea. This condo and its amenities made this truly enjoyable.
