Location is amazing, right on beach, 5 minutes walk to Yal Kul lagoon for amazing snorkelling, 15 minutes walk to Akumal main town and beach where I swam with turtles. Eat lunch at the bakery in Akumal and evenings the Bueno vista bar on the beach is 5 minutes walk and great fun. Highly recommend this condo for a chilled stay. Staff all very helpful too.
