                                                                                                      3 of us stayed at the apartment for 4 nights. We really enjoyed the light spatious interior, well-equipt kitchen, balcony with hammock and comfortable chairs. The master bedroom has a very comfortable bed with much needed air-con. It's convenient to have a bar/restaurant below even though the food is not that good for the price you pay for it. The bay is nice for snorkelling ( I saw a turtle, colourful fish and a lionfish)and swimming. The best reef to snorkel in is a bit far out close to where the big waves break. It's important to know that there seems to be a constant wind and there are waves so it's not always ideal for a relaxing easy swim. Also when the sea is a bit rough it can affect the snorkelling. We were there at the end of May and we don't know what the weather does the rest of the year. The beach is sandy but as you enter the water there are rocks (and maybe some small sea urchins) so you have to take care or wear swim shoes. In the apartment there is a chest containing snorkeling and swimming equipment as well as some water sports equipment. Although if you are a serious snorkeller bring your own as some of the equipment is a bit incomplete and uncomfortable. On the beach there are some loungers and umbrellas for your free use. The cleaning lady comes every day. They provide drinking water. The Akumal beach town is a collection of tourist shops and facilities. Akumal town is more authentic with cheaper shops and more locals but it's only worth to stop by for supplies. We recommend hiring a car to take full advantage of the area and to save money and time on taxi/bus rides. All in all we recommend this condo

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!
