About Reina Todd

Originally from Key West Florida we retired to Mexico in 2015 and now live in Playa del Carmen. We love the Mexican culture, the amazing beaches , the warm weather year round and of course the great food! After two trips around the world this beautiful country is where we are happy to now call home.

Reina Todd purchased this condo in 2016

Why Reina Todd chose Akumal

Akumal, a small town on the Mayan Riviera an hour and a half south of Cancun is made up of two beaches: Akumal Bay with it's powdery white sands and turquoise water is most famous for it's turtles. Half Moon Bay with it's more rugged, long, curved beach is perfect for snorkelling, swimming and walking and beach combing. Both have warm clear water rich in marine life including many turtles. The Yal-Ku Lagoon which is right down the street teems with tropical fish and stingrays and the Aktun Chen Park is know for it's caves, cenotes and underground river. Nearly a dozen great restaurants and bars within walking distance make Akumal a perfect vacation spot.

What makes this condo unique

Half Moon Bay in North Akumal has no high rises or large hotels. Comprised of low rise condo buildings, a few small boutique hotels and beautiful private homes the area is very quiet, low key and laid back. Bodega Sur offers a premium beachfront location at a very affordable cost . Bodega Sur is located on the garden side of Luna Azul Condominium with a small private patio, just steps from beach and all that if offers!

Bodega Sur is AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay at Bodega Sur. The staff is incredibly friendly--we arrived after the office closed for the night but thanks to Reina's help coordinating, someone was there ready to greet us and let us into our room, even though we arrived around 9 PM. The room is clean and has everything you could want for a bit of a longer stay (we were there for about a week)--coffee maker, oven, blender, cooking utensils, etc. The room is cleaned everyday (if you choose, we opted out of having it cleaned a couple of times). There's internet in the room which we sometimes had an easier time accessing it in the little courtyard right outside the room.

It's literally just steps away from the beach. The beach is quiet and clean, great for snorkeling. Restaurants are within walking distance. There's a few parking spots on the property if you choose to rent a car, which we did, and although it looks like there were only 4 spots right in front of the property, we never had issues with parking.

We would definitely stay here again. It was quiet, safe, beautiful, and relaxing. Many, many thanks to Reina for letting us stay!

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

This rental had everything we could ask for at a very reasonable price for the area. No sofa, no view but it was bright and cheerful with a well equipped kitchen and a very comfortable bed. Daily maid service was included but it was very easy to maintain. Did I mention the lovely, private courtyard just outside the door? We would have our coffee, get caught up on current events and read on a great outside table.

One of the best memories of this rental was walking up the steps,a beautiful strong blast of air from the Bay hits you, through the passageway to the beach area and voila! you have a spectacular view of the water. I will miss that and my cozy stay at the casita. Thank you Reina and VRBO.

Loved it..... location, space, homeyness!! The only negative is that the bed was like a rock, hard to get rest. But apart from that, I would totally stay here again!!

Excellent suite on beach!!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent two weeks from mid to end of December 2017 in this wonderful room. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we enjoyed Bodega Sur. The king bed is very comfortable (we both like a firm mattress), the kitchen has everything needed to cook meals, and the shower has the most pressure we've ever had in Mexico. We really enjoyed the outside private patio. All meals and coffee were taken out there. The beach is just up a few stairs with a table and chairs, and enough beach chairs for everyone. Which means at the most 5 other people. Nice and quiet. The staff were fantastic, Reina our host was fantastic, she was very helpful with information and advice at any time. There are three great restaurants close by, one left, two to the right. Yal Ku lagoon is just down the road, Turtle Bay is just down the road in the other direction. Rent a bike, car, snorkle gear, its all right there. We had a wonderful, relaxing time. Thank you.

Great Accommodations for the price. Nice quiet beach friendly staff & clean room.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great about this place. The beach out front was quiet and relaxing, the water was amazing for snorkeling but not so great for just going in to cool off as it’s pretty rocky on the feet, this was its only fallback. We would definitely recommend Bodega Sur!

Akumal is famous for its beautiful beaches and snorkelling with the turtles. You can walk right off the beach and swim for free with the turtles in their natural habitat. The Yal Ku lagoon is also an incredible location for snorkelling with a myriad of marine life and it is a 10 minute walk from Luna Azu.
