When you awaken in the morning you will gaze out at the blue Caribbean, the Great Mayan Reef, and the white sand beach. You will marvel at the sensuous curves and Fairy Tale buildings of Half Moon Bay. You will be amazed as pelicans in formation glide by your widow. You might even glimpse the resident osprey as he fishes for dinner over the reef. As you drink your morning coffee you can gaze out at the horizon as you plan your day's activities.
In short the views will knock your socks off.

Very happy with our stay here, location was perfect, quiet and beautiful. We rented bikes (from main office of La Sirena condos next door).Only a 15 minute easy bike ride into Akumal for breakfast, shopping etc. quick walk to Yal- Ku lagoon for snorkeling.We rented a car for just one day to go to Tulum, but a car's not really necessary if you plan to stay mainly around Akumal. Views are just as described - I could look at Half Moon bay all day long... Water is very shallow, great snorkeling right in front. Would have liked a balcony to have morning coffee, but that is the only shortcoming I can think of! Very good value, clean and well kept, would stay here again, and would recommend to anyone looking for a peaceful setting away from crowded beaches.
Best location in the Riviera Maya situated between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Small community with beautiful beaches, restaurants, snorkeling in Half Moon Bay, fishing. Close proximity to golf, scuba, beachcombing, and many other activities. “Akumal” means “place of the turtles” in the Mayan language. In season, you can watch the turtles lay their eggs and then march to the sea.This is monitored by the Ecological Center of Akumal.
The apartment has high ceilings with windows from top to bottom. This condominium has a small private balcony off the bedroom. The bedroom has a king size bed and private terraces. Property is walled for privacy and has 2 pools. We have an ideal placement at the end of Half Moon Bay in Akumal where the road ends.
