Our family had the best week in Akumal. The condo was comfortable and provided everything we could ever have wanted. The huge balcony was a great place to have coffee, read, and just sit and look at the beauty surrounding us. While this was our third time in Akumal, it was our first time on the other side of the village and we absolutely loved walking into the village, to Yul-Ha, and had our choice of places to eat and drink only minutes away. Being able to snorkel right out front was an extra bonus. We couldn't have asked for anything better!

Thank you, Margot, It's wonderful to know that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Playa Blanca and were able to explore everything Akumal has to offer. Let us know when you're ready to visit us again, and we'll gladly help you plan another great vacation.

Our family of 5 had a FANTASTIC holiday week at Playa Blanca! Throughout the week, as we both relaxed at the condo/beach and explored many areas of the Yucatan peninsula, we commented on how smooth things went in large part because of Akumal Direct and its seamless coordination and the outstanding concierge services. Plus, the condo itself was perfectly appointed and super comfortable!

Thank you, Cathy! We are glad you and your family enjoyed your holiday stay at Playa Blanca 8. Let us know when you're ready to join us again, and we'll gladly help you plan another fun vacation in Akumal.

We had a lovely stay in the condo and the people from Akumal Direct was very helpful. We were a little disappointed that the beach does not have sandy bottom and you need to wear shoes for a dip, but we found Xpu-Ha beach 15 km from the condo and it’s probably one of the best beaches I’ve ever seen. They have a lovely new beach club that was very affordable and nice bathrooms etc. The apartment itself was very nice. As nice as the pictures. Akumal is super nice. We rented bikes and had really nice meals every day, to be honest I would much rather be in Akumal than Tulum or Playa del Carmen. The Condo is in a nicely gated area and it’s clean and nice everywhere you go.

The view is amazing. The decor is fun and eclectic. Beds where comfy. Spacious bathrooms and each room has its own. Beach access has great sand and is cleaned each morning. Easy parking. Cons: Stove did not work you could smell the gas but would not lite. Showers are huge but terrible water pressure. Small little ants in kitchen. Didn't realize the third bedroom is not attached at all. The wind bangs the hurricane shutters around all night taking away from the ocean noise. Third floor provides nice view but a huge work out when bring stuff up and down. No pool..looks like there was one at one time. Over all nice condo with large porch for stairing out at the beautiful sea.

This is a beautiful 3rd floor condo right on Half Moon Bay just north of Akumal. Very comfortable and nicely furnished. We greatly enjoyed it. With our party of five, we had plenty of room and there were lots of games available for evening family time.

Es un lugar excelente, super amplio, acogedor, con muchos detalle que hacen muy agradable el ambiente, vistas maravillosas, el aire acondicionado y ventiladores funcionan de maravilla, su cocina muy equipada. Alrededor muy tranquilo. Los encargados nos advirtieron del sargazo (que obviamente no se puede controlar) pero eso no arruinó nuestras vacaciones. Tuvimos oportunidad de ver nacer tortugas y nadar con ellas en otra bahia. Es un lugar para los amantes de la naturaleza pero que nos gusta disfrutar de buena vida. Seguro que volveré pronto. El encargado en la noche muy amable y atento. Quien estaba limpiando el lugar de día nos ayudó con las maletas también. Todos muy amables y atentos.
