THE ROMERO ESTATE

Akumal Villa Rental Photos and Description

Luxury Villas and Townhouses: serving couples or small families to large groups

LUXURY IN PARADISE! Whether you are a single couple looking for a secluded place to get away or whether you are a bride looking for just the right place for your perfect wedding with everyone at the same location, or something in between, here is your dream answer.

OUR HOUSES: Whether you look at the magnificent villa: Casa Romero, one or both of the family-friendly French Angel townhouses, or one or both of the more secluded townhouses that are Blue Tang, you will find that each room has its own character and special feel.

* CASA ROMERO: Choose this magnificent villa with 3 bedrooms: Maximum occupancy of 8

* FRENCH ANGEL BUILDING: 4 bedrooms, kids welcome, maximum occupancy of 12

* FRENCH ANGEL TOWNHOUSE (A or B): 2 bedrooms, Family Friendly, Maximum occupancy of 4 to 6 ( 4 adults or 6 with children and adults)

* BLUE TANG BUILDING: 4 bedrooms, adults only: maximum occupancy 8

* SINGLE COUPLES: Look at a French Angel townhouse or a Blue Tang townhouse. 20-35% discounts for single couples using only one bedroom.

Pick the luxury accommodations that are best for you or combine two or more for larger groups.

Located directly on Yal Ku lagoon, you have direct (free) access to the marvelous snorkeling with schools of tropical fish. The complex features an outdoor pool at Casa Romero, and individual heated rooftop pools on each of the townhouses.

Tucked in the relaxed atmosphere which is uniquely North Akumal, you will have plenty to do, but you may decide to just relax.

YAL KU LAGOON: A true jewel of Mexico, Yal Ku Lagoon offers magnificent snorkeling for both the novice and experienced swimmer. Protected from the ocean waves, you can float along and see schools of sergeant fish, blue tangs, and others. Many varieties of parrot fish chomp on the algae on the rocks while angel fish and others swim about. You can also swim towards the inlet to the see: a shallow sandy area where you can sometimes see a turtle or a ray. Other great snorkeling and diving are available nearby including in caves and cenotes as well as the nearby coral reefs.

We had been visiting Yal Ku Lagoon for almost 15 years and always loved staying in Akumal, especially directly on the lagoon. We traveled extensively and found ourselves saying, 'this is nice, but it isn't Akumal', or 'it isn't Yal Ku'. So when we found a villa for sale directly on the lagoon, we could not pass it up. After restoring Casa Delfin, we were relaxing in the rooftop pool at night wondering what we were going to do next. We both looked over at Casa Romero which was in terrible shape. Two weeks later we had an agreement to purchase it and renovations began only a few months later.

David and Nancy Poor purchased this villa in 2007

The Romero Estate is the only privately owned complex of homes on the Riviera Maya - plus it is on the lagoon. We could not pass up the opportunity to restore Casa Romero to its proper grandeur and to convert all the houses to luxurious accommodations.

If you have ever been to North Akumal, you know it maintains the laid-back atmosphere that has gone from so many places. We have the feeling of belonging to a community. In addition to the magnificent snorkeling in Yal Ku, one of the things that we like the best is that Akumal is enjoyed by Mexicans as well as tourists. We have gotten to know the many local restaurants and enjoy eating out as being able to cook our own food and entertain friends and family.

TRAVEL INSURANCE: For your protection, we recommend that you purchase travel insurance as protection for your vacation. Travel insurance can protect you from many losses you might otherwise incur because of unforeseen circumstances such as illness, injuries, and mandatory evacuations. Note that we can not generally provide refunds for cancellations or interrupted stays. We do recommend travel insurance so that you can be protected.

REFUNDS: We do not generally provide refunds. However, if the airport is closed by the authorities or if there is a mandatory evacuation, we carry forward your unused payments (pro-rated) toward a later reservation up to 18 months.

The Casa Romero Villas are the best vacation villas I've stayed at in a long time and I have been on many vacations throughout my 50plus years.

The bedrooms were of high quality and the full kitchen was a pleasure to cook in.

I particularly loved the jazzuci style pools on the roof of our villa. It was so relaxing to sit in the pool and enjoy the spectacular view of the lagoon.

I would highly recommend the Casa Romero Villas to anyone traveling in Mexico.

They were well worth the trip.

If you already know North Akumal, you know that is a family-friendly, quiet place where you can relax. With the fully equipped kitchens, you can choose to fix your own meals, hire your caretaker, Rene, to fix you some special dinners you are sure to remember, go out to any of the area restaurants, or have catered meals brought in. Many of the restaurants are directly on the beaches of Half Moon bay and Akumal bay: you rarely need a reservation, you will always be welcomed, and there is never a dress code. You may also want to go to any of there nearby towns or attractions including Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Xelha, Xcarat, and more. You can hardly find any better place for snorkeling: both in Yal Ku Lagoon where you have your own private direct entrances, and along the reefs: rent a boat or just swim out to magnificent coral reefs teeming with fish. There are also several places to take Padi certified diving lessons. You will be diving among the fish on your very first day.
