Akumal Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Views! Views! Views! Enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the blue Caribbean Sea from the oversized 3rd floor balcony of this spacious 1600 sq. foot beachfront penthouse condominium. Watch from above as turtles pop their heads up for a breath and stingrays glide by in Half Moon Bay. Or better yet, grab your mask and snorkel and join them!

Snorkeling and diving are within easy access. Enter Half Moon Bay right off the beach to see turtles, stingrays, coral and fish. A short walk to the north will take you to the calm, clear water of Yal Ku Lagoon with its large variety of colorful fish. And a short walk to the south you will find Akumal Bay where seeing a turtle is just about guaranteed, along with squid, parrot fish and eagle rays.

There are three dive centers in Akumal, one located right on Half Moon Bay, all with PADI-certified instructors offering sensational reef and cenote cavern dives.

Of course relaxing on the white sandy beach is always another inviting option. Whether you prefer the sun or the shade of a palm tree or palapa, there are plenty of lounge chairs to go around.

Comfortably accommodating up to 8 adults, this unit offers 3 bedrooms, each with its own connecting full bathroom. There is a king sized bed in the master bedroom with a view of the sea. The second bedroom has a full and two twins (bunk beds). And the third bedroom has a queen sized bed, with separate entry from the main condo - which makes it perfect for two couples traveling together who want a little privacy. This third bedroom has its own kitchenette with sink, mini fridge, microwave, blender, coffee maker, dishes and utensils, TV and DVD player, and a patio area which overlooks the lush green jungle and magnificent sunsets. Take just a few steps up to the rooftop seating area for better views of the bay, the sunsets, or star-gazing at night.

This 3 bedroom condo can be rented as a 2 bedroom condo with a lockout to the third bedroom.

The living area of the main unit is very roomy with a V-shaped couch facing the sliding glass doors which open to the balcony overlooking the sea. A large dining table seats eight. There is a fully equipped kitchen complete with large refrigerator, microwave, 4-burner gas stove/oven, coffee maker, toaster, blender, quality pots & pans, knives, utensils, serve ware, dishes and glasses. Daily maid service and fresh drinking water are provided. There are ceiling fans throughout and air conditioning is available in all bedrooms, though most of the time the gentle breezes from the sea make air conditioning unnecessary.

Other amenities in the condo include:

Wireless internet

Cable TV

Flat screen TV

DVD player with large selection of movies

Stereo iPod dock

Jacuzzi tub in master bath with view of the sea

Electronic laptop-sized safe to secure valuables

Pillow-top mattresses

Iron with ironing board

Centrally located on Half Moon Bay, it is just a short walk to nearby restaurants, including the world famous La Buena Vida swing bar and restaurant, for a rollicking good time. An equal distance in the other direction will take you to La Lunita where you can bury your toes in the sand while enjoying a romantic candlelight dinner.

There is a small market located across the street from the condo for ice, milk, eggs or other last minute items…like ice cream! The nearby village of Akumal also has two grocery stores with a larger selection of items, restaurants, gift shops, farmers market, art studio, jewelry store, and yoga center.

For the adventurous, there are many excursions within minutes from the condo including the magnificent Mayan ruins of Tulum, the caves of Aktun Chen, many fresh water cenotes, Xel-Ha and Xcaret theme parks, Playacar golf course. Fifth Avenue in Playa del Carmen lights up and comes alive at night with its endless shops and restaurants.

May through September is turtle nesting and hatching season and many green and loggerhead turtles return to the beaches of Half Moon Bay to bury their eggs in the sand to incubate for about 60 days. And if you’re lucky, you may also see hundreds of hatchlings making their way to the sea. To observe this act of nature is an absolutely amazing and unforgettable experience.

We have been vacationing in Akumal since 2002 and would love to share our second home with you. We have the knowledge and experience of the area and are eager to make suggestions to make your Akumal vacation enjoyable. If there’s anything you would like to know, just ask!

Guestbook comments from the manager

and quiet. The bay has some nice snorkelling on the reef. Yal ku lagoon is about 800 metres further up the road and well worth a visit. Akumal Bay is about 1km back to the highway and also well worth visiting. Quite different to half moon. Big turtles there.Before we went we asked Don a whole load of questions and he was very quick, helpful and honest in all his answers. We were really impressed by his willingness to help us find the right place for us rather than just trying to get us to come to his condo. He also gave us a whole load of advice about places to eat, things to do, where to get into the bay to catch the reef, how to get there and the like and it was all excellent. Don and Cheryl really want you to enjoy your stay and go the extra mile to make it happen.The Playa Paradise management team in charge of running the Condo did an excellent job. Their office is just 50 yards down the road and they showed us round very efficiently and dealt with the issues we had very quickly and pleasantly. (We locked ourselves out, had a problem with the safe when I think the batteries went low and reported a cracked toilet handle which was replaced in less than an hour). The maid service for the condo was also excellent.All in all this was a great condo with great facilities, fantastic location, excellent service,and a real feel about it that the owners really cared that we enjoyed our holiday and wanted to make it as comfortable and easy as possible for us.


Please help us improve our service. The one thing that we were not told when you showed us round was that one of the fans in the lounge is switched on and off behind the television. We found the switch - but we had to search for 10 minutes before we did! You may want to point this out to people when you are showing them round.

Happy place by the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Every time my wife and I think about our stay in Akumal we smile. We had a very nice stay. The accommodations were perfect for our group of 5. We were two couples and my mom. My mom has dietary restrictions so we cooked everyday. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed to cook our own meals. Our neighbors commented that it always smell so wonderful on our side of the complex. We bought groceries at the Soriana in Playa.

The unit was clean and well maintained, the grounds were also very clean. We appreciated the maid service, a small daily tip kept her happy the whole week. We felt safe and secure.

From the condo we made excursions to Chichenitza, Coba and Tolum. We also went shopping at Playa and swam with the Turtles at the public beach in Akumal. At night the sound of the ocean and the wind lulled us to sleep.

We can't wait to go back!

Great Location right on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

At first sight, we loved the condo. The third floor offers a great view of Half Moon Bay. The breeze off the ocean was great. We left the sliding walls open the entire time we were there. The master bedroom opened up to the rest of the condo so we could listen to the waves as we fell asleep. The owners were very quick to respond and we had everything we expected. We loved the daily maid service. Several good restaurants nearby including La Buena Vida for dinner, and Turtle Bay for breakfast. It was a short walk to rent snorkel gear and we saw tons of turtles in both Half Moon Bay as well as Turtle Bay. The kids went snorkeling every day including the morning we left. If you have snorkeled before, skip the guided tours and just rent the gear. That will allow you to get away from the crowds. We liked the Tulum ruins tour a lot.

It was nice and quiet away from the large resorts but we could walk into Akumal for dinner or supplies. We will be back.

Beautiful, quiet and convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

3rd floor condo with great sea breezes and a beautiful view of half moon bay. You're on the beach. We felt secure and the condo staff were very helpful. We rented a car to go various activities such as Tolum ruins, rio secreto, and Coba.

We walked to everything in Akumal- 1/2 mile to many restaurants. Snorkeling we saw a manta ray at Yal ku lagoon and turtles in half moon bay and tons of colorful fish.

Great trip and great condo!

Lovely decor, excellent staff, and unbeatable view

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for our grown-up family getaway. We stayed for 11 nights and found the space gave just the right amount of privacy. The condo has many thoughtful touches from plastic containers for your leftovers to flashlights for evening walks and even a first-aid kit for our adventurous group. (Yes, we needed it - twice!) We spent many evenings dining and playing games at the gorgeous dining table and watched the sunrise from the balcony or rooftop. There were plenty of towels, extra snorkeling gear (we only used one item as we'd brought our own), and plenty of lounge chairs on the beach.

When a question arose for the owner we received a reply within hours. And, when we mentioned a broken screen to the staff, it was fixed immediately. They even went above and beyond to help us with arrangements when our flight was cancelled and acted as interpreters on a number of occasions. We rented bicycles from the main office - it was quick and easy - and the bikes were much nicer than other options in Half Moon Bay.

In short: we hope to visit again and highly recommend this fantastic vacation rental!

PS: The only complaint... Two in our group wished for a softer mattress, so if your preference is for a cushy pillowtop, be sure to ask about it.

Beautiful view, great roof, spacious

  • 4 of 5

The condo is great and well located. The staff was helpful and and owners were very helpful and responsive. The beach in front of the condo is a bit rocky and narrow, but just down the road from a larger more lively beach. The roof was great for sunsets.

Family Beach Trip

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at this condo in Akumal was really great. Our group had a good time in spite of the untimely arrival of the seaweed. The beaches were beautiful. The condo worked perfectly for our 2 families. It was very clean, super tropical comfortable and the views were picturesque. The maid service was excellent also. The lagoon was our favorite. If you go, rent palapa #1. It has it's own private entrance to water and very roomy. The town is super cool. It felt like a little village, loved it. All the food we had was fantastic from tons of mexican, homemade pasta, and scrumptious pizza. We had Chef Daveed come cook one dinner. It was spectacular. We loved all the dishes and salsas.

The owners were great. My oldest was in Europe while we were in Akumal. I was worried about being able to be contacted for emergencies. She offered up her cell phone number for me to give out for emergencies. That way she could be contacted and get information to me. There is WiFi in house. It helped also.

Highly recommend going to Akumal Bay early in the morning (6am) to snorkel with turtles. You have to get there before other swimmers and boats. It was phenomenal. Then head over to Turtle Bay Cafe and grab some sticky buns and breakfast before they sell out. 8 am is too late! 😉

Snorkeling was great in Half Moon Bay . You need to swim out to reef. Saw some gorgeous fish, brilliant colors, octopus, etc.

Overall a great trip!
