Akumal Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

We fell in love with Akumal, known as the place of the turtles, and so will you. Away from the hustle and bustle of Cancun, you can walk 40 steps to the turquoise Caribbean to our private beach and snorkel with sea turtles in warm Half Moon Bay. Renowned Yal Ku Lagoon, which is sometimes called an outdoor aquarium, is within walking distance. PADI certified dive shops are located on both Half Moon and Akumal Bay. We even have a shaded pool overlooking the beach and bay for those really hot days, as well as the complex's large family pool.

Our spacious, thoughtfully appointed 1600 square foot condo is located in a peaceful lush garden setting. Each bedroom features a king size bed and the second bedroom has an additional twin, making us an ideal place for your family or to share with another couple. The condo offers daily maid service (including the dishes!), soaps, linens and towels along with hair dryers. Bottled water is provided in our fully equipped kitchen. The dining area seats six, plus three breakfast bar seats. WIFI is available, although it can occasionally be sketchy. The condo also offers a TV monitor for streaming and DVD use.

Akumal has many fine restaurants. The ambiance is warm and very casual everywhere. You can walk the beach to a few of the restaurants and curl your toes in the sand as you sip your margarita and enjoy the wonderful seafood or steak. American and continental cuisines are featured along with Mexican fare.

Akumal is centrally located for many nearby excursions. The Mayan ruins at Tulum, the only archeological site right on the Caribbean Sea is 15 miles away. Coba, another Mayan site is just west of Tulum. You can swim with the dolphins in nearby Puerto Aventuras, which also offers a nine hole golf course, or travel a little farther up the road to Xcaret. Playacar lies just to the north of Xcaret and features a fine 18 hole golf course. Playa del Carmen offers the vibrancy of city life with its shopping along Fifth Avenue and you can take the ferry over to Cozumel from there. A fine new course, Bahia Principe, lies minutes south of Akumal near Chemuyl. There are too many other fun activities to do in the area to list here.

Loved La Iguana 14.......

  • 4 of 5

Our vacation was wonderful it was not our first time to the Akumal area we have been there many times, we have been to all inclusives we have rented other Villas, this condo/villa was beautifu,l everything we expected. Very spacious, nicely decorated . The

kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed to cook several meals. The first day of our arrival we stopped at the grocery before we came to the house. We had several days of groceries and realized after a few hours that the refrigerator was not working, we contacted management as soon as we could, they assured us it would take time to get cold, so we waited, knowing that wasn't going to happen. We made several runs to the local stores for bags of ice throughout the day and evening so our groceries wouldn't spoil, when we told management of the problem several more times they replaced with a temporary refrigerator until they replaced with a new unit. A little glitch, to our perfect week....Our housekeeper Andrea was a beautiful woman and so accommodating to us. We would definitely go back to LA Iguana 14, we loved the location and the seclusion of the north end of Half Moon Bay..

Home Away from Home

  • 4 of 5

A wonderful accommodation choice for our recent family holiday of 5 adults. We were all very happy with the size and location of the condo. We liked the large, comfortable and clean rooms and the daily maid service was excellent. The AC in the 2 bedrooms and the large ceiling fans were very efficient and made our June stay comfortable. The under cover outdoor pool was a refreshing cool-off spot in the heat as well. We loved the location: the quiet north end of Half Moon Bay with its private beach, easy access to the beautiful bay for good snorkeling and short walk to the wonderful lagoon. We rented a few bicycles from the office for our stay and it was well worth it, as it's an easy 10 minute ride to town then over the highway bypass to Akumal Pueblo. We enjoyed the roof top views, the garden setting, the range of reading materials, the board games and flippers for snorkeling. ( We had packed our own masks and snorkels). The ample supply of drinking water provided in the kitchen was appreciated. We found USA Transfers an excellent service for transportation from and back to Cancun airport, and appreciated the one hour stop in a large supermarket on the drive down as we did much of our own cooking in the well-equipped kitchen. The only concern was very limited Wifi service, a problem for 2 in the group who were planning onward travel. Fortunately, they accessed Wifi service at nearby bar and restaurant La Buena Vida. This wonderfully casual place appealed to the kid in all of us! I would certainly recommend the condo to friends and thank owner Deb and condo staff for a safe, relaxed and comfortable holiday.

Wonderful condo !

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I had a fantastic week's stay at this lovely condo and could not have been happier with the condo, the location and the neighbors. The daily maid service was a lovely plus with no dishes to wash, no beds to make and the place always beautifully clean when we returned from a day at one of the pristine beaches or cenotes in the area. The condo is situated at the end of the main road in Akumal so it's very peaceful but in easy reach of great dining by foot or bike. The two bedrooms are spacious and the kitchen well equipped for making meals. Deb was always responsive to our inquiries from the beginning to the end. Also, we did rent a car and were very thankful we had as we loved going down 307 and finding deserted beaches. We are already talking about returning.

Lovely Condo on Half Moon Bay

  • 4 of 5

Group of 5 adults stayed here for a week in October. Property was well cared for, and grounds were very gardenlike.

We usually cooked breakfast, and found ample cookware and utensils for all. The full size refrigerator was also nice. They have a nice little pool in a gardenlike setting and another pool overlooking the bay. We found the bay almost empty of other people, and so had it to ourselves, and because the condo is on the north end of the bay, found less issues with sea weed there. Anywhere you go to the Mexican beaches there is a sea weed issue, but don't let that stop you, snorkeling was very good in Half Moon Bay and saw about a dozen turtles down in the town of Akumal. Although we went there early in the morning before all the tour groups starting arriving. Deb was very informative about things to do in the area and easy to work with, if we had any questions. The folks working as the property managers were also quite helpful. The price for the condo was most reasonable for what we got and would certainly not hesitate to rent from them again. We've stayed in this part of Akumal before, and find it less crowded and relaxing. We enjoy visiting the various pueblos like Akumal, Chemual, and others to eat at the local restaurants, and we found on average, with the peso exchange, most of our meals averaged only between $7 to $8 per person. Akumal is centered in the area of the Mayan Rivieria so one can visit many cenotes, beaches and even Mayan ruins with an easy drive. By the way, we rented a car this time and had no issues with driving the Mexican roads and highways. Staying in Half-Moon Bay, you should have a car. And just a reminder about the road to get to Half Moon Bay from town, though, needs work. While a number of the sections of road are paved, there are also sections not pave, and they were very rough and rugged, one wonders if the owners can't at least fill all the holes with stone or pebbles to smooth it out. Oh well, thats Mexico! Check this place out though, since we believe you won't be disappointed in your stay.

WOULDN'T GO ANYWHERE ELSE!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this condo last year and just love how secluded it is and off the beaten path. You are only a few steps from the ocean and it has all the amenities you could possibly want for a stay. I was there for a week and you can walk to restaurants that are close by, Ya-Kul Lagoon which is 1 block away and the bird and animal watching early in the morning is phenomenal. Deb and Mike send you all the information you could possibly want to make your stay as easy as possible. The kitchen has everything you need and the refrigerator is a full size one. You can snorkel right in front of the condo building or walk around to the middle of Half-Moon Bay. You could get by without a car but it's nice to have it for those side trips. I so enjoyed the staff - Hector, Victor, Luis and Andrea were so very helpful. If you run out of items, the Corner store is a few blocks away.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a rental that you should consider. From the beginning the owner was responsive to all inquiries. The staff in the condo were responsive to any requests for assistance. The apartment was clean and well cared for. It was very comfortable with all of the accessories one might need. It is best for those who have a car or if you don't mind walking because the condo is about 2 km from the main road. Located right on Half Moon bay, good snorkeling

is a few steps from the front door and YA KUL inlet snorkeling park

is just a 10 minute walk away.
