Sweet condo in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 days and we were out mostly but the Casita was just what we needed. It is cleaned really well every day. The beds are very comfortable. The air-conditioning works well. The watery is purified from a tank so we could drink it. The kitchen had what we needed and more although a kettle would have been ideal. The location is amazing, near some excellent restaurants and walking distance from Akumal Bay. The beach in front of the condos is fantastic and is about 30 steps from the Casita. There was some sargassum coming in but cleaned regularly so did not present a problem. The condo property is very well maintained - the staff clean everything constantly. It is very secure and the security staff are friendly and helpful. Agustin, the office manager, is great and will assist with tours etc. Great for kids. We would highly recommend to anyone looking for accommodation and who doesn't expect high end luxury.

Owner's Response: We couldn't have said it better. Great description of Casita Maria. My husband and daughter are going down there in a couple of weeks and will be sure to bring a kettle. Great idea! Thanks and so glad you enjoyed your stay! Best, Polly

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Chris and Polly's place was perfect for what we needed, we could walk to everything easily.

The place itself was very cute and they thought of everything as far as utensils for the kitchen. Our only issue and it's probably not even able to be helped because of the concrete is that it was quite hard to dry anything due to the dampness and in turn some things started to smell a little of must. For the amount of time you spend inside it didn't really bother us but maybe a dehumidifier would help?

We will be recommending to people for sure.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry you had an issue with dampness. We never have before, but we usually stay in the summer and the a/c is on and the fan is on pretty much nonstop. I think that helps keep it dryer. It can get very humid!

Peaceful piece of paradise

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I came here for 4 days after spending 10 days in busy Tulum and we're so glad we did! What a difference in pace. No crowds, no noise, private and quiet...just what we needed before returning home. The room had everything we needed. The management were super welcoming and bent over backwards to make our stay comfortable. Ate at the restaurant "Buena Vida". Amazing food! Walked over to Yal Ku lagoon for a snorkel. Snorkel at Half Moon bay was not great and the water was choppy, but we enjoyed relaxing on the beach chairs provided.

Reason why I am leaving a 4 stars is because of the mold in the room. We could smell it as soon as we walked in, and by the end of our stay, we felt sick. I know that this is a common issue with beachfront properties, but the fact that there are no windows for cross ventilation made the room damp, stuffy and moldy. Can't beat the location and the price, but if you have sensitivities to mold, this might not be the best place for you.

Nice, comfortable condo with 5-star service

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week at Casita María and we loved the location on the beach. The condo was very comfortable and well-equipped and all the staff was very nice and helpful. Everything very clean and excellent maid service. Thanks for sharing your private space with us, we spent a wonderful week on Half-Moon Bay!

The perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Beachfront Casita could not have been any more perfect. Everything about our stay in Akumal was wonderful. Augustine, the on site manager, was very responsive for any requests that we had during our stay. We are already planning a return trip next year, if not before.

Absolutely darling little bungalow

  • 5 of 5

The complex at Playa Caribe appears to be very well maintained and there was always someone on site in case there was ANY problem. Our particular bungalow was so cute, very well maintained and clean inside, maid came in everyday which was divine, and there was a basket of essentials like coffee, bananas, chips, cookies, a pineapple, to get us going for the week. Most thoughtful and thank you. Although near the road, heard very little road noise. Suited us well, wifi was always available and strong, tv/satellite worked great, kitchen was well equipped. We love Akumal for its' convenience to everything so this was a wonderful last minute find. An observation and beyond the owner's control, can get somewhat noisy with foot traffic from above if there's a family (in our case, family of 5) in residence. Loved the pool and the beach although the seaweed was quite heavy in Half Moon Bay while we were there. Really great restful week away.
