Fabulous place to stay in Akumal

  • 5 of 5
I'm sorry it took me so long to write a review about our trip to Akumal in December, but I wanted to put on the record that my family and I had a wonderful week in Akumal and a big part of what made the trip so special was Joyce's apartment.

From the very first email exchange we had with Joyce, to our last minute at the apartment, everything was fabulous.

The apartment is very spacious and well kept, and it made all the difference to have drinking water, especially as we were travelling with a small child. Also, the daily cleaning service was extremely appreciated, especially after a day of bringing sand inside the apartment. It was so relaxing waking up to the sound of the ocean and being able to enjoy the beach (note that the ocean bed was very rocky and we had to wear water shoes to fully go into the water, but it was super special to have a reef right in front of the building) and our "private" pool (as it was literally outside our door and we were able to have it to ourselves for most of the week).

The only "issue" we had is that we couldn't connect to the wifi upon our arrival and we were told that the strong winds have moved the box, however, upon notifying the building manager they immediately started working on it and the problem was fixed smoothly.

Akumal is a very special place: very close to all the action but secluded enough to retain the peacefulness otherwise lacking in other parts of the Mayan Riviera.

We loved having breakfasts at the Turtle Bay cafe (and buying freshly made bread and pastries to take to the apartment with us) and dinner at La Buena Vida. We also managed to take a couple of great yoga classes through Las Casitas. Also, snorkeling at Yal Ku Lagoon was a fabulous experience (and only a 3 minute drive or 15+ walk away).

All in all we had a fabulous time and we can't wait to go back to Akumal. When we do, we will certainly try to stay at Joyce's place again.

Definitely Most Relaxing Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved it here ! If you don't like crowds, this is the perfect place for you. I loved waking up and being able to swim laps in the pool and then take a walk on the beach. We also enjoyed the snorkeling right off the beach. We saw a really nice variety of fish and our favorite was a Cuttlefish. La Buena Vida is very close and we enjoyed their happy hour. I found the margaritas excellent there and if you like calamari it was the absolute best I have ever tasted ! We had a rental car which gave us a lot of freedom. We travelled to a few beaches close by and finally got to visit Tulum public beach...WOW. It's only about 15 mins away by car. We really enjoyed the seafood at Lol-Ha restaurant in Akumal , enjoyed everything we had at La Buena Vida and there is a place across from the condo called La 3 Acapulquenas and they can cook up delicious meals for you to take back to your condo for great prices. We had Teresa cook us up a lobster tail meal that we brought home and enjoyed with candlelight and a glass of wine. The view from the condo was beautiful, with the pool and the sea beyond that. I have really nice pictures of the full moon over the water. Beautiful ! We loved the convenience of being ground level and enjoying a coffee just on the patio. The design of the bathroom shower was perfect for either a shower or a nice relaxing time in the tub. The layout of this condo is nothing short of perfect ! We will be back. Joyce was so informative and we took a lot of the advice she gave. Hilda the maid did an excellent job of keeping the condo clean and creating something new almost everyday out of the towels. We have been to Mexico 5 times before this year and this was our best stay yet !

The Perfect Choice for Mexico

  • 5 of 5
We had the most wonderful time in the Yucatan and a big part of it was staying in this incredible condo. We are a family of four and it was just perfect. With 2 very large bedrooms and 2 bathooms, living room, dining and kitchen area we were set. The place is so clean, the staff is friendly (and they clean every day), the water is filtered so you always have purified water to drink, and the owner, Joyce, goes above and beyond in giving you all the information you need for your stay.

One of the advantages of the condo is being on the ground floor. We are used to staying on a second story, but being able to step out from the living room to the patio and have the pool and beach right there was such a plus (I didn’t realize how great and convenient this was.)

Other wonderful reasons to stay there: The beach, water, and snorkeling is terrfic. We got to see sea turtles hatch at night (you can ask staff to knock on the door if they spot hatching that night.) La Buena Vida restaurant, a quick skip down the beach, was our favorite place to eat and have drinks (when we weren’t dining at our condo.) Akumal (for other great snorkeling) is a quick drive or even better - rent bikes from the office at the condo. We biked in the rain and it was the best ride ever! Tulum is about 20 minutes away. A great town to get groceries, see the ruins, and enjoy the sparkling beach (not a snorkeling beach because of the waves but one of the most gorgeous beaches I’ve seen.)

We did many excursions but there was nothing better than coming back to our home away from home and relaxing by the pool or just spending the day at Playa Caribe and enjoying the beautiful beach and water. Thank you Joyce for such an amazing time at your wonderful condo.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Merissa, the review is great. I love to know that people appreciate what I do. The best part of my job of keeping track of reservations is getting to know, by email, different people from around the world. In the times I get to meet the people in person it is extra special. Akumal is wonderful and it is great to share with others. Best, Joyce

Perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed for 7 days and it was way too short. Loved having a ground floor unit to walk right out to beach any time we wanted. Rocky shore, but that's because of the amazing reef feet away from the shore. I'm an avid snorkeler so this was exactly why I chose this place. If you want a sand entry akumal is right around the corner too and a must see anyway. Akumal pueblo not far away and great dining options in either real Mexican restaurants or more expensive and wonderful options on HMB or Akumal bay area. Perfect location to relax and a great base for exploring. I didn't want the PDC or Cancun experience again and I got exactly what I wanted. Been disappointed with snorkeling in previous trips but not this one. 1st rental condo and won't be the last. Loved the conveniences of a condo and great staff too. Got woken up to see turtles nesting one night! Will definitely rent this unit again especially since playa caribe is one of the few I inquired about (and I believe the only one actually) that has ac throughout not just in bedrooms. Wouldn't be an issue mosf days with ocean breeze but a couple of days if was very nice to have. As my wife put it, best trip ever.

Heaven in Mexico

  • 5 of 5
Akumal and the Playa Caribe condo was the perfect way to ring in the new year. Our family of four immediately felt at home with everything the condo had in it. It was so clean! There was tons of space inside and out. Having the pool right in front of the condo gave us the feeling that it was our own private pool. Most days the kids had it to themselves. The views were to die for. We saw turtles poking their heads up all day. The beach at Akumal Bay was great for snorkling and seeing the huge sea turtles. We went twice. Yal Ku was one of our favorites and is just a five minute drive to do the best family snorling ever. The staff at Playa Caribe was so helpful and friendly. Daily maid service was a bonus. Augustin in the office gave us all the tips of where to go. Joyce (the owner) was incredible to work with. Her emails, photos and info sheets made the trip smooth. We have stayed in other condos in other cities in Mexico and this has by far been our favortie holiday. We will be back.

A special place

  • 5 of 5
I usually do not write reviews however this time I felt I really wanted to share. The owners and their condo far exceeded any expectations my family and I had. This was our 2nd time in Mexico and will never stay anywhere else if possible..The location was perfect for all our activities. Having a pool a couple feet away and steps to the ocean to snorkel was extravagant. The people are friendly and warm and the condo itself luxurious, homey and comfortable all at the same time. Joyce (the owner) went out of her way to send us info.,suggestions and helpful hints. This condo is for everyone looking to have a relaxing, comfortable, safe, clean and special vacation to add to their memories.
