Great condo for quiet couples looking for rest and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed in January 2014 at Malu's condominium. We were escaping the cold in Toronto and found Malu's condo. It was great for our last minute vacation! What made our experience an especially pleasant one was Malu herself. Malu was great at communicating back and forth with us via phone and email while we were still in Canada and met us in person at her condo. Malu even brought new water glasses to ensure that we had enough for our stay. She was both friendly, helpful and most accommodating.

Malu's condo is located in the resort community of Grand Sirenis. Two bedrooms, two baths with full kitchen and washer dryer. The condo was equipped with all the necessities to meet our vacation needs. We appreciated the balconies off every room ensuring we had a great view in every direction. My husband and I especially enjoyed eating our breakfast and sipping our coffee off the main balcony which is situated off the living room. After enjoying the sights and beaches during the day it was great to come home and watch the news and or a movie in either the living room or bedroom. We did not use the second bedroom which has two single beds (great for families) but we will keep in mind for a family trip in the future.

The location of the condo is most convenient. Located on the same property as the Grand Sirenis, we made use of the day pass which was $650 pesos per person. The rate does fluctuate and as this was high season, we understand that you may get a lower rate when travelling during low season. We enjoyed snorkelling off the beach and found the service at the resort was great. Malu recommended to us the "water circuits" at the resort's spa. For $25 USD per person you can enjoy an hour and half guided tour through the spa's hydrotherapy pools. Really a lot of fun and most enjoyable. We availed ourselves of the lunch provided afterwards in the spas luncheon area. The food was delicious!

We enjoy being adventurous so the condo was the perfect fit for us. We enjoyed the freedom and flexibility of the public transportation system in the Riviera Maya and a 15 minute walk from the condo gets you to the front gate to catch either the Mayab, colectivo or taxi. For those less inclined to do a lot of walking, you would want to rent a car.

Thank you Malu for a great holiday!

Needed some sun - found paradise

  • 5 of 5
I needed to escape the dreary weather in the midwest and planned a trip to Akumal with my active parents. Could not have been happier with the apartment. It was so beautiful, new and clean. Well furnished without being cluttered. Wide windows with screens and shutters. Could keep the windows open all night and enjoy the breeze, but shutters kept the light out and screens kept the bugs out. Enjoyed cocktails and watching the sun set as well as breakfast on the deck. The bathrooms were well designed - the shower in the main bathroom was great - large and great water pressure. The location was blessedly quite, not many people about which I enjoyed. Also felt quite safe the entire trip.

Was pleasantly surprised that great beach towels and snorkeling masks were available in the apartment. Nice touch.

The WIFI was a bit spotty, but that was ok - this vacation wasn't about electronic communication, it was about enjoying company.

The washing machine is for the maid to use - she will do a wash for $5. Didn't have any laundry to do, but others should be aware.

If you enjoy cooking while on vacation, be aware, like all rental places, the chef knives are dull, but that is to be expected. Other than that it equiped enough for us to prepare a dinner or two and all breakfasts.

We are not beach people, but did enjoy the walk to the beach and along the shore. Was not crowded at all in February.

This place does require a car to get around, but would rather do that and not feel like I was living on top of people like it appeared in Half Moon Bay. Nothing was very far away and the roads are in fine condition and everything was easy to get to - restaurants, Akumal beach, Tulum, the grocery store, gas station, etc.

If you want a quite beautiful retreat in the sun, this is the place for you!
