Wow, I just got back from paradise. I have never found a condo like this. This ground floor, beach/ocean/pool front unit has it all. It is beautifully decorated, fully equipped (even an electric portable bbq),has filtered clean running water, exquisite beds, sheets and towels, security, daily maid service and the friendliest staff I have ever met. There is truly no way any vacationer with or without children would not rave about this unit. Yes, this is the needle in the haystack that we are all always looking for and thou I rarely right reviews want to share my good find with all the other travelers out there looking for that ideal spot to e-mail home about. Akumal is about 1 hour south of the Cancun airport in the heart of the Yucatan. The town itself is a hidden jewel boasting of 2 beautiful sand lined bays filled to the brink with crystal clear, clean, warm water that makes you feel like you are snorkeling in an aquarium. The Playa Caribe Complex is located at the apex of Half Moon Bay which allows you not only a beach front view but the Caribbean Ocean is literally a few steps away off your back patio.
We spent endless hours discovering the sea life both big and small but brag about swimming with the turtles, touching an octopus, and joining in with a school of parrot fish just to name a few. The bay allows both water lovers and non lovers to enjoy the experience.
For all of you out there that enjoy great fresh food right on the beach with the ocean sound as your backdrop and the absence of crowds or long lines then this is your eden. For those of you that like to venture a bit the abundant activities of the Yucatan including: Tulum, Hidden Worlds, Xcarat, Golfing, Horseback or ATV riding, boogie boarding, etc, etc., oh yea and shopping in Playa De Carmen are all within a 30min or less drive. I am home now and having the pool and the beach steps from my patio door are just a memory but my husband still makes me an occasional margarita.
Enjoy and Live everyday!
