Located directly on Yal Ku lagoon, you have direct (free) access to the marvelous snorkeling with schools of tropical fish. The complex features an outdoor pool at Casa Romero, and individual heated rooftop pools on each of the townhouses.
Tucked in the relaxed atmosphere which is uniquely North Akumal, you will have plenty to do, but you may decide to just relax.
YAL KU LAGOON: A true jewel of Mexico, Yal Ku Lagoon offers magnificent snorkeling for both the novice and experienced swimmer. Protected from the ocean waves, you can float along and see schools of sergeant fish, blue tangs, and others. Many varieties of parrot fish chomp on the algae on the rocks while angel fish and others swim about. You can also swim towards the inlet to the see: a shallow sandy area where you can sometimes see a turtle or a ray. Other great snorkeling and diving are available nearby including in caves and cenotes as well as the nearby coral reefs.
Enjoy one of these two story, two bedroom townhouses with central air throughout: ideal for individual couples, small families, or friends traveling together.
Located directly on Yal-Ku lagoon, your luxurious townhouse offers privacy but convenient access to the lagoon, the ocean, nearby restaurants, and the many activities in and around Akumal.
Each townhouse has two bedroom sites, one with a king bed and one with two double beds. Both are on the second floor overlooking the lagoon.
Downstairs, find an open floor plan with the living area and dining room which overlook the lagoon, kitchen, bath, and laundry area. The flat screen TV is attached to a satellite with US content and a DVD/CD player. Free WiFi Internet connection plus free VOIP telephone for calls to the US, most of Europe and about 50 other countries.
Enjoy your private rooftop pool - great for children, even toddlers, during the day - and perfect for adults to watch the stars at night.
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.
The Owner purchased this house in 2007
The Romero Estate is the only privately owned complex of homes on the Riviera Maya - plus it is on the lagoon. We could not pass up the opportunity to restore Casa Romero to its proper grandeur and to convert all the houses to luxurious accommodations.
If you have ever been to North 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.

Beautiful condo. The backyard opens into the lagoon. Easy step into the water. The underwater view is incredible. The condo is very well equipped. Great for a big family. Pool on the roof is a great plus. Daily cleaning provided. Would definitely stay again.
The four of us really enjoyed our time here.
Being right on the lagoon was magical, particularly in the early mornings and after 5, when the light is long and the fish active and not hiding from the many mid-day snorklers.
The adjacent homes were not occupied while we were there.
We ended up using the very nice roof-top pool only rarely, as the lagoon was so very inviting and easy to visit.
The lagoon is a fantastic amenity, combining the tranquility of a freshwater lake and the brilliant fish diversity of a coral reef!
The layout of French Angel A is excellent, with a very good flow, light and views. The staff were almost invisible but yet kept things tidy and functioning.
We developed a routine of alternating days visiting the various ruins and being on the southern beaches around Tulum, often ending up at Akumal beach for an hour around 5 when it was quiet before heading back to the apartment.
Town of Tulum is a great center for lunches, fresh fish at the pescaderia, and points west (to Coba for example) or east to the biosphere reserve, the ruins and beaches.
We began discussing our return visit before we left, and find that the immediate setting and location are really superb for a family or group of friends.
The owners are very friendly and helpful in pointing us to various resources.
If you already know North Akumal, you know that is a family-friendly, quiet place where you can relax. With the fully equipped kitchens, you can choose to fix your own meals, hire your caretaker, Rene, to fix you some special dinners you are sure to remember, go out to any of the area restaurants, or have catered meals brought in. Many of the restaurants are directly on the beaches of Half Moon bay and Akumal bay: you rarely need a reservation, you will always be welcomed, and there is never a dress code. You may also want to go to any of there nearby towns or attractions including Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Xelha, Xcarat, and more. You can hardly find any better place for snorkeling: both in Yal Ku Lagoon where you have your own private direct entrances, and along the reefs: rent a boat or just swim out to magnificent coral reefs teeming with fish. There are also several places to take Padi certified diving lessons. You will be diving among the fish on your very first day.
