Why Diane Capistran chose Akumal

My brother and I love to travel. Mexico and the Riviera Maya is one of our favorite place in the world. The people, the climate, the sea, the food and the sun make this part of the world a wonderful place to be.

We decided to buy a condo there in 2015 and hope to give people a chance to discover this magical area!

What makes this condo unique

The condo being at the Bahia Principe Resort, it gives you the best of two worlds: the quiet and intimacy of your terrace and Jacuzzi or the activities and night life of the hotels.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We spend 9 nights in the condo and loved it. What you see on the pictures is what you get. The bed is very comfortable and we liked that the bedroom had its own air-condition. The kitchen had everything you would need including a drinking water dispenser to fill up water bottles. We did not cook a lot but bought some groceries at the super market in Tulum to make sandwiches and have snacks and drinks for our daily trips. Loved the porch but could not enjoy it in the evening due to the mosquitos. If this was my place I would install some fans and maybe screen in the porch to enjoy the evenings out there. Everyone in the complex was very nice, especially the security guards. On our last day we had one come up to us to show us that there were deer on the golf course right behind the condo. We enjoyed the pool at the condo every evening and were usually by ourselves. We did go over to the Bahia Principle hotels and they are very nice but we do not like crowds and laying in the sun all day, so they were not for us. We had a rental car (be aware of the extra insurance and fees, it will double you estimated car rental cost, make sure you do the research). We did day trips to Tulum, Coba and Chichen Itza on our own and booked a boat trip through the hotel Sian Kaan (you can find the tour planer in the lobby of the hotel). We eat out most of the time and all the meals we had were excellent, from the small hole in the wall restaurant in Tulum to the must have seafood platter from La Cueva del Pescado in Akulum.

Thank you very much Diana for letting us use your condo it is just lovely!

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Diane’s beautiful condo for two weeks and loved it. It’s very clean, and peaceful. Being people who love to swim and snorkel we enjoyed the beach near the Tulum complex.the reef is easy to swim to and we were lucky enough to see some rays.

It may be helpful for others who are not renting a car to know that it does take about 45 minutes to get to the beach from the condo residences. This is because it’s a 10 minute walk from the condo to the tram pickup at the Sian Ka’an and you may wait for 10 - 15 minutes before one comes, then it stops at several locations at the resort before you get to the Tulum lobby and then have to walk another 5 minutes to the beach from there. In high season they will likely run a shuttle from the condo to the tram pickup, but it wasn’t running when we visited.

We had breakfast & lunch at the condo but chose to go out for dinner to Akumal or Puerto Aventuras, which are about 10-15 minutes north by car. There was also a little beach restaurant located about 5 minutes walk up the beach called Beached Bikini that we enjoyed.

We used colectivos to get around, explore & do our grocery shopping, which was easy and inexpensive. Just bear in mind they stop running at 10pm.

They only suggestion for improvement is to have a gas barbecue at the condo. ( if there was one in the past it wasn’t there when we visited) There was only a charcoal BBQ grill at the pool area for residents but we didn’t want to deal with buying charcoal & lighter fluid etc.

Thanks Diane!

Owner's Response: Thank you Suzan for your nice review. Snorkeling is indeed very nice in the area. Even though we recommend renting a car on our add, I am always glad to see that people have had a wonderful stay without one. Bahia being a huge complex of 4 resorts, it does take some time to get to the beach when using the free shuttles. There are usually direct ones from Sian Kaan to Tulum hotel and also to the Sian Kaan beach. Some others stop on the way. If you rent a car, you can park right beside the Tulum hotel or beside the Sian Kaan beach It is a 5 min drive. We would love to have a gas BBQ. The problem we encounter is filling up the tank. There is no store in the area and you have to go to Playa to do so. This is why we bought a counter top grill so you can grill meat and veggies. Thanks again for your stay. It has been a pleasure having you as guests Diane

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Diane's wonderful condo. The unit is beautiful and well equipped with everything you need, with all the comforts of home. We made our breakfasts there, the kitchen had everything we needed to make our meals. The grounds were stunning and we enjoyed the communal pool, usually to ourselves, which we loved. Everyone we encountered at the Resort were very nice and helpful. We saw some wild life including coati, which was an added bonus. Yes there's mosquitoes but hey, you're in the jungle, it's to be expected. The location was perfect for trips to Akumal, PDC and Tulum. We will definitely stay here again when we return to the Yucatan. Thank you Diane for making us feel at home!

Nice condo on the golf course.

  • 5 of 5

We spend three nights in this place. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was really nice and the bathroom was clean. During our stay we rented a car and visited places form Playa del Carmen down to Tulum. This condo was in a nice central location, and because it is inside a gated community it was quiet and relaxing. We did not get the chance to play golf or enjoy any of the things that the Bahia Principe resort offers. This is a nice place for a great price.
