An extremely comfortable and beautifully furnished accomadation in a fantastic location. The doors open onto a rugged, rocky coastline which never fails to take your breath away, and it is a short walk from the white sand beaches of Akumal. There are several excellent restaurants within walking distance as well. It makes a great base for seeing the area by car, but it is also a perfect place to spend time in and relax in its own right. Highly recommend!

Right on beautiful beach so you can go to sleep with waves crashing. Very relaxing and low key with easy access to snorkeling, ruins, dining, fishing, shopping and more. We enjoyed just laying out on the back deck by the pool. We took our three teenagers and they enjoyed it too. We'd go back!
