It was a perfect fit for our travel desires.The photos on the website were very acturate there were no surprises, we got everything that we were expecting and much more.The location was beautiful, white sand, palm trees and the ocean just feet from our patio. The condo was lovely, very clean and comfortable with lots of extra homey touches, and since we love to cook it was important the kitchen had everything we needed, which it did. The management company was very professional, we had a minor problem with the microwave and they had it replaced in a few hours. The daily maid service was a treat. We loved our trip and have already told our friends and family of our find. Looking forward to a return visit hopefully soon. The snorkeling was fun in both the nearby lagoon and ocean. The ruins at Tulum were fasinating and if you have time check out the ruins at Caba as well, hire a guide there is so much that does not meet the eye, well worth the few extra dollars. The shops and restaurants in Akumal were great, but if you have a chance go into Tulum about a 20 minute drive south, you will find great local food, fish and veggie markets, restuarants and shopping, the local flavor is wonderful. And if you are cooking the grocery stores are bigger in Tulum and one can easily find everything needed to stock your pantry. If relaxing in the sun at a leisurely pace is what you want in a vacation, this is the ticket.

BETTER THAN I EVEN THOUGHT IT WOULD BE

This condo was terrific and I'm sure we'll come back. The photos on the listing were absolutely accurate in every way. It really does open up right onto a beautiful beach, which was raked and cleaned every morning. The lay-out of the condo was great for two couples. We loved the patio right on the beach. The daily maid service was a surprise, and made the vacation seem even more luxurious. The nearby Buena Vida restaurant is excellent--we ate there 5 times. During our stay, the water in front of the condo was a bit rough for snorkeling, although we did it. However, the snorkeling at nearby Yal-ku Lagoon was delightful. In a short drive or reasonable walking distance, there is super homemade ice cream at Lucy's (Turtle Bay Restaurant). The overall location is good for day trips to the ruins at Tulum and Coba. We also spent a day at Xel-ha, which was well-worth the high entry fee.

I enjoyed very much staying at Playa Blanca. Very clean, nice location, close to the water. Snorkeling right outside our door was fabulous. Any questions or concerns we had were taken care of immediately by the staff. It was an easy walk into Akumal for groceries, restaurants, and dive shop so we did not need to rent a car. Some of the family went to Xel Ha for a day and loved it. We used the grill and enjoyed it, (attracted the neighbors.) Best part was the beach guy cleaned it for us the next day. We tipped of course. I would highly recommend staying here and would do it again if the opportunity came up.

We had an amazing time in Akumal over our two week stay at Playa Blanca. The condo was beautiful. We opened the glass sliding doors & were able to walk right out onto the beach. It had everything we needed, including a BBQ which we used everyday. The only thing that we would recommend is a gas BBQ; the charcoal in Mexico is a little different then what we are used to as it is difficult to light and the heat distribution is not even. The charcoal did however give the food an amazing smokey flavour.

The condo is far enough from the crowds yet close enough to walk to restaurants, stores and Akumal Bay where you could swim with the turtles. This was one of the highlights of the trip. The daily maid service was exceptional as was the daily maintenance of the property. Check in and check out was quick and easy.

Marilu was extremely helpful and went out of her way to provide information on local restaurants, transportation, groceries, telephone numbers, etc. Thanks Marilu!

We will definitely be back one day and we have already raved about this condo to all our friends and relatives.This is the first time in Mexico where we did not stay in an all inclusive and we are so glad to have found this condo. This holiday is at the top of our list as one of the best!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to send this kind review. This means so much to us. Thanks also for the suggestion about the BBQ. We're going to talk about it with our administrator. We hope to see you again in the near future. Don't forget that our return friends always get special considerations. Love to you and Robert!.

This property was perfect for our family of 5. We visited in August and were able to see turtles lay eggs, swim with turtles, and rescue a few babies that decided to head for the road instead of the ocean. Visiting with neighbors and locals were a highlight and the folks that work there should be commended on their thoroughness. The local people are what make this site wonderful. They are so focused on relationships that they really make you feel very special. We had a wonderful time...thanks!
