Great 2 weeks at Casa Langan
We rented this villa with our two very young kids and their grandparents. The house is at the end of a community south of akumal. There is a 24 hour security gate to get in. The beach is cleaned daily by 3 hardworking guys, removing seaweed and anything else that washes up. This villa was taken care of by a very nice couple that lived in the small casita on the road side of the house. The husband cleaned the patio and beach as well as the pool every morning, then they would both spend a few hours making the house spotless each day. There is another woman that speaks excellent english that makes sure you have everything you need, and can arrange taxis, and prepared dinners by the staff. Their cooking was excellent! the beach is great, but the coral starts when the water is knee high, so swimming is a bit challenging. Snorkelling off the beach was ok, but for the best go to the Yal Ku Lagoon closer to Akumal. Its a 30-40 minute walk to the town of akumal along the "beach" where there are a few restaurants and dive shops. During the day it is fine, but because there are rocky sections between the bay we didn't try walking to and frmo a restaurant at night. Cabs were really expensive for the 5 minute trip to Akumal ($15USD) but could have been negotiated I'm sure.
We made use of the owner's contact for van service to and from the airport, which was excellent, and highly recommended. Did I mention the staff will even wash, dry and fold your laundry when needed!the house is ~12 years old and shows its age in some ways, but not in a way that lessened our experience. Overall we would recommend this place to anyone! Thank you to the owners
