We had a late check-in, went seamlessly w/ the property manager (he even helped us unload our luggage & groceries.) The space is clean, the kitchen is fully equipped with cooking utensils, housekeeping staff was wonderful. Each bedroom had an a/c unit making the warmer nights more comfortable. Overall, a great stay!

We had the best time in Akumal and really enjoyed our stay at Playa Blanca. The place was well equipped and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay for a group of 7 people. The location was perfect, check-in/out was seamless, all staff were friendly, and communication was great. Highly recommend this place others-we’ll be back!

Playa Blanca #7 is a charming 3-bedroom condo overlooking Akumal's Half Moon Bay. It comes with daily maid service and is located in Akumal Norte which is quiet and pretty and NOTHING like Cancun. Half Moon Bay is rocky but has good snorkeling when the water is calm (not winter, perhaps?). It's walkable to 3 Akumal Norte restaurants easily and the main Akumal restaurants in about 15-20 minutes. The apartment is clean and has the best-equipped kitchen I've ever had in a rental. The only thing I'd change is the large number of Mexican sculptures and art doo dads that bedeck most of the flat surfaces (including the shower niches and bathroom counter). We were constantly worried we'd break something. In all, we loved it and would definitely come back.

This is a great place to stay. The unit was very clean, amazing view and spacious! The building is close to the lagoon and the public beach. Not to mention the beach were the building is nice also. Only thing, bring water shoes as coming into the building's beach has corals, but the water is amazing and you can even do some snorkeling.

The staff is very nice and friendly and the communication was great :)

Highly recommend it!

My family had an awesome stay at Playa Blanca unit 7. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable. The service provided by the staff was unprecedented. It's right on the beach and the turtles came up to the beach to lay eggs numerous nights. It's close to the town and shops. We will definitely stay here again.

Very happy with our choice to stay @ Playa Blanca, unit 7. Love Half Moon Bay, although it does tend to be windy in January, we had 2 calm days that we took advantage of the snorkeling. Saw 3 turtles and many varieties of fish.
The location of this condo is great for walking to Yal-Ku lagoon and many eating places.
The kitchen was well stocked with the necessary utensils and the dining and kitchen area as well as the living area was very easy to move about for 6 people.
I love love love the arrangement of the master bedroom with the wooden shutters. Have never seen this before and I thought it was really cool. Only can think of 2 downsides and they are no biggies.
One, I wish the master bathroom shower had frosted glass instead of clear. I felt like I was possibly visible.
Two, the third bedroom is a little small.
But these two are not even enough to take a point away.....
Oh, also the balcony was a wonderful place to have morning coffee and enjoy a good book in the evening...........
Enjoy your stay here!

Ideally situated right on Half Moon bay! This 3BR, 2BA unit is immaculate with your own private beach!

I was there with my family and our neighbors family (4 adults and 4 babies)in Feb 2010. A great example of their professionalism, was that they promised to have (2) cribs and (2) highchairs available for the kids and sure enough they did! From start to finish, Akumal Direct was professional and everything was 100%taken care of!

I cannot speak high enough of their new property manager, Balta. He took care of all of our needs and was very friendly and super-helpful during our stay.

Grab this unit if you can! I know I'll be back next year!

Best Regards,
Shane Wilson

You never know for sure what you're getting when you reserve online, but your team assured me this place was a match with what I was looking for. It was AMAZING. Beautiful property, well kept grounds, right on the beach and in a quiet part of Mexico. My fiance and I will definitely be returning to Akumal and booking through Akumal Direct. This puts the all inclusives to shame and we can't wait until next November! Thank you for everything. Andrea D. & John G.

It's not that you wake up out of a dream and find yourself in paradise, but that is about what happened. My wife and I were lucky enough to be great friends with a couple who have stayed in Akumal several times over the years. They have always been a little on the adventurous side so when they told us stories about their stay we were always transfixed. So when they decided to renew their twenty fifth year wedding vows on a beach somewhere then Akumal was the place for them. It didn't take to much arm twisting. So with their encouragement and our need for a vacation, my wife and I packed up and headed to Akumal. Since we arrived in late from the airport and didn't get into the condo until dark, it wasn't until the morning that they dream became a reality. Our third floor condo had one of the most beautiful ocean views I have ever seen. With the sliding door open you could hear the waves and feel the wonderful ocean breezes. The unit was beautifully decorated and had all the amenities you could want (kitchen, TV, Stereo, colorful furnishings). I thought it was pretty funny when my wife initially complained about the noise of the waves but then realized this is why people pay so much to live on the beach. What I liked about Akumal the most was that whatever you wanted to do you could do it. Whether it was swimming, fishing, hiking, visiting the cenotes or just relaxing, it was all available. Our friends all got together, and with a local band we walked down the beach to where they had their ceremony. It was great. I definitely think we will be back. I would love stay in the same condo. This time I think we would do a little more relaxing.

Great Week in Akumal

We had a wonderful vacation. The condo was large, clean, and in a perfect location. The maids are excellent. We are looking forward to returning. The only problem has been with the car rental agency (Easy Way). The car had an expired date on the back window & we were pulled over by the police. It took Easy Way 3 days to fix the problem. Two full days that we did not have a car. They are not affiliated with Akumal Direct but were recommended. We are still waiting to hear from them to see if they will credit us in any way. But beside the car issue, everything was great. We now know why so many people return to Akumal year after year.

The reason why I rated the property manager so unhelpful is because, for first few days I coulding find the office that serviced the unit I rented. Some other manager from a differnet office said you just go in and it will be unlocked.
I just happened to find the manager when visiting friends a few buildings down and saw my name on a paper taped to the front window of the office. Everyhting else was great.

Feb. 2008. We stayed in Playa Blanca #7 for 3 weeks. We had also stayed in #7 in Feb. 2006 for 3 weeks. This unit has a great balcony, lots of room for the table, chairs and hammock. Being on the 3rd floor it has a wonderful view of the beaches and out to the water. The unit has an open kitchen, living room, dining room layout so it was great for having the whole family for dinner. This year we had 3 couples and 2 small children and it worked fine. The railing on the balcony is not child proof (2 rails only - see picture). The maids were excellant. They were there 7 days a week and everything was spotless. The location is an easy walk to the Lagoon (10 min) and about a 20 min walk to the store, shops and market. There are several good resturants within a 5-10 min. walk. They are making some inprovements to the roof top area and it was a great place to watch the lunar eclispe. The kitchen has most things for cooking simple meals. There is no oven, however there is a microwave. Management was fine although we missed Hector. Danny is working on his English and I'm sure it will improve with time. One person in our group spoke fluent Spanish which was helpful when we had some specific questions. This unit is well priced and a bargin for 3 couples or a larger family. We made our arrangements through Akumal Direct and they did a great job. We were coordinating 4 families (grandparents, parents and grandkids) for this vacation and they made it work well at reasonable cost.

LOVED IT!!!

We had an amazing time staying in this unit. We loved all the local art and the amazing views. The maid worked hard daily to keep the place spotless. We would definitely like to come back to stay again.
