About David and Nancy Poor

David and Nancy Poor, Owners

David and Nancy Poor purchased this villa in 2007

Why David and Nancy Poor chose Quintana Roo

We had been visiting Yal Ku Lagoon for almost 15 years and always loved staying in Akumal, especially directly on the lagoon. We traveled extensively and found ourselves saying, 'this is nice, but it isn't Akumal', or 'it isn't Yal Ku'. So when we found a villa for sale directly on the lagoon, we could not pass it up.

After restoring Casa Delfin, we were relaxing in the rooftop pool at night wondering what we were going to do next. We both looked over at Casa Romero which was in terrible shape. Two weeks later we had an agreement to purchase it and renovations began only a few months later.

What makes this villa unique

If you have ever been to Akumal, you know it maintains the laid-back atmosphere that has gone from so many places. We have the feeling of belonging to a community. In addition to the magnificent snorkeling in Yal Ku, one of the things that we like the best is that Akumal is enjoyed by Mexicans as well as tourists.

We have gotten to know the many local restaurants and enjoy eating out as being able to cook our own food and entertain friends and family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was my wife's and my second stay at Villa akumal. The first time two years ago we stayed in Casa Delfin; this time, in Blue Tang. We both think that akumal is the perfect place the place to stay on the Riviera Maya, and the Luxury Villas and Townhouses on Yal-Ku lagoon is the perfect place to stay in akumal.

The lagoon is spectacular: beautiful water, fish and birds. A feast for the eyes whether you're above water or below. And whether on or near the lagoon, you won't find better lodging or hosts than David and Nancy Poor and their lovely villas and townhouses. Every facility is spacious, spotless, well furnished and full of color from their artworks in the rooms and around the property, and the native flowers that frame every view.

Rene, the property manager, and his wife, Lucy, live on the property and make sure that you're well cared for -- giving advice on things to do, where to go, solving any problems you might have and even cooking something special if you make arrangements for that. Between their attentiveness and the Poor's, you'll want for nothing.

Things that we especially like: Delfin's curved second floor veranda and the view from there ... the rooftop pools on each villa and townhouse -- luxuriating in the pool sipping a cool drink, watching the sunset and feeling life is good! ... the infinity pool off the terace behind Casa Romero ... the pleasant walk (or very short ride) into the town center and it's shops, restaurants, and spectacular beaches. A tip: go into town early and snorkel out to the sand bar. On your way you'll see spectacular corals and swim with the sea turtles! Then have breakfast at Lol-Ha right on the beach! I'm partial to huevos motulenos.

Negatives? Hardly worth mentioning.

Looking forward to our next visit, and you can be sure there will be another visit.

Wedding Planning

  • 5 of 5

This property offers a benefit unlike any other property- a free stay to plan your big day!! Of course I took full advantage of the opportunity to stay in a townhome at no charge to head to Akumal and plan out my wedding. I have to say that I was not disappointed. The property to beautiful and it well maintained. The owner was onsite during my stay and was accommodating to our needs and was always available to answer questions. The owner, David, lives in Casa Romero while staying in Akumal and therefor you can rest easy knowing that he takes very good care of the property. We are heading back in January 2014 to tie the knot and I am so excited to bring my friends and family to this David's properties!

Casa Romero and Blue Tang

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been guests at the Casa Romero Complex every year since 2008. I cannot recommend it highly enough, for both adults and adults with children. Daily maid service, English speaking manager, snorkeling in the lagoon 20+ steps from our patio. Rooftop swimming pool in Blue Tang and French Angel. Casa Romero house perfect for our family or three couples...Descriptions in web site accurate, owners extremely helpful.

Another great stay (our 3rd) in the Romero complex. We're already looking forward to next year's visit. We brought another couple with us this year and they fell in love with it also. Very attentive staff who take wonderful care of the guests and houses.

We had an AMAZING stay at...

  • 5 of 5

We had an AMAZING stay at Casa Delfin. The house is gorgeous, the furnishings great, and very authentic Mexican.

The location could not be better. The lagoon is absolutely amazing for a morning snorkel, afternoon dip, or evening cool-down.

We spent hours sitting on the balcony overlooking the lagoon playing cards and sipping margaritas. The pool on the roof was perfect for an afternoon dip.

The town is great, and the local restaurants were perfect for our group. We just loved the Buena Vida. We were there two years ago and are still talking about how much we loved it!

And the caretakers were awesome. They took great care of the house, and were very helpful! I can't wait until my next visit!!
