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 Condo Located at a Fabulous Resort Setting.

  • 5 of 5

We picked up our rental car at the airport and headed south along Route 307 towards Akumal. When we arrived at the entrance for the Bahia Principe Resort, we knew this place was going to be something special, just by the looks of the impressive entrance. After passing through the entry gate, it was just a very short drive through a beautiful manicured park like scene to the condo. This is a four-plex unit and the property is on the ground floor. After obtaining the key from the lock-box by the front door, we opened the it with great anticipation and were greeted first off by the sound of pleasing music emanating from within.

Our eyes were immediately drawn to the polished marble flooring and a sliding glass door leading to the rear patio. Glass so clean, my wife at first thought it had been left open, revealing a private outdoor seating area. As we toured the condo, we were impressed over and over again.

The bedroom is spacious, with plenty of room for clothing and personal effects. A comfortable king size bed takes center stage and provides a great place to rest after enjoying the day. It is directly connected to the modern and efficient bathroom, with great use of glass, porcelain, and marble in the decor.

The kitchen is so fully stocked for preparing meals, that you will struggle to find anything that is missing. Appliances include microwave, blender, coffee maker, toaster oven, and more. We went to the grocery store and fully stocked up with everything we wanted, knowing we had all we needed to prepare great meals.

The living room TV is modern with satellite, but the number of English channels is limited. There is also a TV in the bedroom, but it is not connected to anything. There is an HDMI cable though, so it could be used for connection to computer or other streaming devices, I suppose. The WiFi and internet is great.

There is a full size washer/dry setup for laundry, and it works very good. Gas water heat and kitchen stove is also very nice. The patio is great for relaxing and we enjoyed using the tub in the evening. The owner's local rep came by to check on us, and make sure we were happy. He was very polite and not at all intrusive.

During the evening there are shows at the resort hotel with live music. The gift shops are very good and the prices are very competitive with local shops in Tulum.

The resort is so nice, I feel like we barely scratched the surface. This would easily be a place we would visit again.

We enjoyed our stay. Great location. Diane was fantastic to deal with. The only thing I would recommend is perhaps a BBQ on the patio. That would have made it 5 stars. We look forward to book again.

Beautiful property. Had everything we needed!

  • 4 of 5

We spent 3 nights in this lovely condo. We took advantage of the all-inclusive option 1 full day. Worked well for us. We ate out the other days. We chose not to rent a car & were able to get around just fine. It was a bit of a walk some days after 4pm to return from the front of the resort property back to the condo. However, we viewed it as our daily exercise. If for any reason (age or circumstances), someone is not able to walk (.25-.5 mile) each way you might want to rent a car as suggested. Also may want a car to visit other locations in the area. We took the collectivos & a taxi upon leaving to visit Tulum. The shuttle service from the condo is very helpful to get to all of the pools, beaches, restaurants & front lobby. FYI it runs from Quetzal to front lobby of Sian Kaan from 8am-4pm. From front lobby you can take other shuttles all around the property (they are labeled). They run later. But after 4pm you would walk from Sian Kaan lobby back to condo (.25-.5 mile mentioned earlier).

All of the staff are very friendly & make you feel right at home. It is nice to practice or learn a few Spanish phrases if you're not fluent. We enjoyed meeting so many kind people.

The condo had everything we needed. It is clean & extremely practical. It was also easy to find. We used USA-transfers from airport to Bahia Principe (main entrance of Quetzal). Diane provided very detailed instructions & answered any questions we had promptly. We can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you Stacie for your nice review. People are very friendly and helpful at the Quetzal! Like stating in our add, we do strongly suggest renting a car to get around the condo area as well as the Riviera Maya. Many guests of the condo did not rent one and got around just fine using the colectivos or taxis. Without a car, you will need either to walk to the Sian Kaan ( around .25-.50 miles like you wrote) or take the shuttle. As owners we are working with Bahia Principe to extend the shuttle period after 4PM. We hope it will be functionnal shortly and will advise it as soon as it is. Thanks again for your stay and you are welcome to come back anytime Diane and Pierre
