About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps up to 4

On the beach of  Akumal's popular Half Moon Bay is La Bahia, located on the best part of the Bay, yet a short walk to Yalku Lagoon! You can't find a more perfect location.

La Bahia #4 is a fabulous 2BR, 2BA second floor beach front condo in this small, quiet, charming complex of 8 condos. It sits on the white sands of Half Moon Bay, the most requested area in Akumal. Guests can watch the turtles surface from you condo year round. With luck,  those visiting May- Nov might get to see a turtle lay her eggs on the beach, or a hatch of babies heading back to the sea..... both incredible experiences!

The master suite of this condo has been furnished with a king size bed & is separated from the living area with a bi-fold wooden door, which when left open, allows the flow of the fresh Caribbean air and a fabulous view of the Bay. Each morning you are awakened by nature's alarm clock; the melodious singing of tropical birds out the jungle side window and the soft lapping waves. Sip a cup of coffee while watching the sunrise from the spacious ocean-facing decks. The second bedroom offers a comfortable brand new queen bed. Both ocean view air conditioned bedrooms are served by private en suite regionally tiled bathrooms with showers. The condo's full kitchen includes bottled water, pans, dishes, table accessories, a bar with stools and a dining table. Here is something our guests love.... all rooms in La Bahia 4 have ocean views!

La Bahia has onsite management, daily maid service six days per week. The  manicured tropical gardens allow you to enjoy the local beauty. You are just steps from the coral sand beach, and the protected  bay beyond has world class snorkeling, so you'll find incredible vistas here both above and below the water!

Both bedrooms of La Bahia 4 offer spectacular beach and jungle views (unique to most other condos on the bay for the 2nd BR). Enjoy the refreshing cross breeze from any room, or on hot humid days, cool off using the bedroom a/c.  Soak up the sun from the elevated private beach courtyard, and savor the shade of the private palapas on the white sand beach. Find fabulous snorkeling in the bay right outside your door, and just up the road in the aquarium-like Yalku Lagoon!

La Bahia offers its guests the convenience of amenities within walking distance, yet a beach that is often deserted. Our guests rave about their stays here. This condo is privately owned and decorated, making it unique and comfortable.

La Bahia #4 includes daily maid service, high speed Internet service, free bottled purified water, linens, a fully equipped kitchen with plenty of convenient appliances and much more. Wireless Internet is available , so please bring your laptop. Beach towels can be checked out at the reception office. You will love your stay here when visiting Akumal!

Rent La Bahia #4 today, it is the perfect base to enjoy all the regional beauty Akumal offers it's guests!

Simply the BEST

  • 5 of 5

I'm a single Dad who has been vacationing with my two girls in Cancún and Riviera Maya for the past 20 years on a yearly basis. After staying at La Bahia in Half Moon Bay in Akumal, we are only coming here. Forget room service or waiters when you can simply walk 20 ft to your condo and get a bloody mary! This is not for those looking for the club scene and discos and fancy restaurants or shopping centers. This is a place for those who are looking for peace and natural beauty. Right in front of the condo we snorkeled and saw hundreds of fish in the reefs, at Yalku Bay (you have to pay $250 pesos like 18 bucks for the permit) and then with or without a vest and forget the tours, just dip in and snorkel away! We saw an octopus and a sting ray!! this with a myriad of tropical fish! Go in the afternoon like 3 pm to avoid people. Alternatively, at Akumal or Turtle Bay, go earlym like 630 or 7 am and do same. We stayed at unit #4 and it is a most Beautifully appointed condo with everything you can think of right at the most gorgeous bay, very relaxing! All you need is to buy groceries to cook at home or go to the restaurants on the bay. You can also take a number of tours to ruins and other parks around the area or you can just sit and read without the boom-boom hotel music or hundreds of people around. Instead, rent a bike from the front desk and explore on your own! My girls and I loved the peace and quiet as well as the vibe and energy of peace and coolness of the place and the people. We simply love this place! We shall be coming back for sure!

Wonderfully Decorated Condo with Great View

  • 5 of 5

The condo has a very good layout with the living room up front transitioning to kitchen/dining in the middle with the bedrooms in the back. It is a good layout that maximizes space. The condo is wonderfully decorated. The view of the bay is fantastic. The condo is also well stocked with items that you will find helpful . . . check in before shopping. The staff on site is very pleasant and responsive. We thought we lost an item in the condo. They checked for us and even allowed us to check for ourselves a couple of days later since no one was in the unit. While the condo is in front of a sandy area of the bay, the beach is very rocky and you will want to have water shoes. Snorkeling was a miss for us on this trip as the water was too rough. Of course, the day that we dropped by to check for the lost item, the water was calm and we saw lots of people snorkeling. Hopefully your luck will be better than ours! Overall, the condo is an excellent choice if you want to stay on Half Moon Bay.

Great spacious condo in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The building is attractive and well maintained. Our 3rd floor condo was bright, open and spacious with a beautiful view. Office and cleaning staff were very helpful and do a nice job maintaining this property. Very peaceful location right on Half Moon Bay. Walking distance to restaurants and shops in Akumal. Snorkeling right out the door if the waves aren't too strong. Easy drive to several Cenotes, Playa del Carmen and Tulum. We will definitely stay in this condo again.

We had an amazing time in Akumal!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had such an amazing time staying here. We saw two HUGE turtles come up to the beach at night near by the condo to lay their eggs. Note: please make sure to turn off all bright lights at night. The turtles are sensitive and won't come up to the beach if bright lights are on. Our stay was great! We will surely stay here again. Views were beautiful being so close to the beach and staff were very friendly and gave good recommendations for things to do and eat near by.

Very relaxing

  • 4 of 5

Chill out and relax. Wonderful stay. Staff were fantastic. Out the door of the condo and just a few steps to the loungers. A few more to the ocean. Basically the beach and ocean in your backyard. Easiest hangout at the beach place ever. Want a drink, snack or need to use the bathroom, it is right there. View is over the top. Clean. Somewhat limited to dining out options. Shower pressure is weak but not a game changer. Bring your snorkel gear. A quick stop at the Chedrui or other store on your way is a must for groceries.

Car: recommended

La Bahia in located in Akumal, which is in the Yucatan's Rivera Maya, on the Caribbean Coastline. It is just a short hour drive from the Cancun airport, but light years away from the crowds and fast pace of the city. Area bays are world renown for diving and snorkeling. The barrier reef along this coast, which protects Half Moon Bay, is rated as one of the seven underwater wonders of the world. From Half Moon Bay, the water is often so clear that sea life, such as turtles, can be seen from the building without even entering the water. Within walking distance of the condos is the famous Yalku Lagoon, which is often equated to swimming in an aquarium. Also, there are many wonderful small restaurants tucked around the Bay for your convenience. The Akumal area is both rustic and quiet with thatched roofed restaurants, lounges, dive shops, gift shops, coffee bars, and more. The area offers a doctor, pharmacy, markets, library, ecological center, police station, laundry, kids center and more
