Notes:
Casa Yal Ku is the perfect place if you want peace and quiet away from the crowd, where your senses will connect with nature. 5 mins far away (by car) to Akumal Town and Beach. Private access to Cenote Yalku. Flora and fauna of this place is something mystical, different species of animals such as iguanas, badgers, birds and color fishes make you feel excited and relaxed at the same time. It is truly an amazing experience that you have to live ! The place is located in an exclusive residential area with private access and security personnel 24 hours per day. We are located in a private area to 3 min of Akumal, 25 minutes from Tulum and 30 minutes from Playa del Carmen. 60 minutes from Cancun. Near the Condo we also have attractions parks with adventure activities, history and culture such as Xelha , Xplore and Xcaret just 10 min far away.

Great spot! House dirty and not equiped!

  • 3 of 5

Quite and private access to Yal Ku (great snorkelling with plenty of fish). To bad the house is not taking care of! Feels like no one came to get the place ready for 6 people. 4 should be the most. Barely enough equipment and no real bed for 2! It could be the greatest place if some one just put some interest for their guests. Sorry but not the case!!

Amazing peaceful retreat in the jungle, steps from the best snorkeling

  • 5 of 5

I specifically booked this condo because of its proximity and entry into the Yal-Ku lagoon and was NOT disappointed. The lagoon is a short 5 minute walk down the practically deserted road and then on a short well light path. The snorkeling right by the entry was the best in the lagoon. Fantastic. This gated community only has a few properties in it so it was rare that we saw anyone other than the folks tending the landscaping. You do need a car to explore the area as there is no walking path into Akumal/Half Moon Bay but it was an easy 10 minute drive to Akumal Beach and 15 to the end of Half Moon Bay and a 15-20 minute drive to the large grocery store towards Puerto Adventura. We also spent a day at the public beach in Tulum - 25 to 30 minutes.

The condo was super clean and well laid out. There is a small terrace perfect for eating dinner or enjoying a drink or just listening to the sounds of the surrounding jungle. The two condos on either side were occupied but we did not hear anyone at all and only glimpsed them a couple of times as they were full time residents with jobs during the day. We did not use the pool, which was close by but it was just as the pictures look.

The bedrooms were good sized with ample closet space with clean new linens, plenty of pillows and comfortable beds - a bit hard but I love a hard bed.

Bathrooms were spacious and clean and a hair dryer was provided. We had enough bath towels (although no wash cloths) and beach towels and beach blankets were provided.

The living space was large enough to comfortably seat four and dining table could seat 6.

Kitchen was adequate, but a bit of a challenge for cooking - pots and pans were limited but we managed to cook breakfast each morning and usually made guacamole and salsa every day to enjoy as well.

The host was very responsive before the trip and during the trip as well. We had a local contact as well, although due to my horrible Spanish, communication was not always 100% but we were able to manage. We were having trouble turning off the A/C in the living room and someone came that day to help - turns out I was using the wrong remote! I can tell you that the A/C works VERY WELL and we really did not need it as the days were in the low to mid-70s.

This was a great hidden gem in the Akumal/Tulum area and I highly recommend it!
