All was great! Can't wait till next time.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mi Casa. The location was excellent, close to beaches, restaurants and everything you could need. The pool was magnificent and right out the door. The owner sent a lot of great information about the condo and the area that was very useful. The condo was well stocked and the daily maid service was such a nice treat. The only thing I could recommend, that has nothing to do with the condo, is to check the situation with sargussum seaweed in the area. Many of the beaches around the Akumal and Tulum area were unusable because of the large amounts of seaweed piling up and rotting. Again, the condo was excellent and well worth the stay, even with the seaweed issue during our stay. A great stay! We would happliy stay there again.
Thanks - indeed it is a shame about the Sargassum. On the plus side there are so many things to do there including visiting the cenotes, the animal parks in Akumal and elsewhere, the water parks, and the historical ruins. Just a note that we did find that the north end of the beach at X'cacel was relatively free of the sargassum, and it's like swimming in a lake !
Great value, great location!
We really enjoyed our stay here!
I decided to plan a last minute surprise anniversary trip for my husband and I to Akumal. It is his favorite place that he has been going to for over 10 years. This is only my second time to Akumal so Hans and Joan's place was in the perfect location (short walk to Half Moon Bay or Akumal for restaurants, shopping, scuba, etc) and met the needs we had on our visit. The booking process was a breeze and Hans sent me a ton of information about the area and what to expect when we arrived. This allowed me to book tickets for the Akumal Monkey Sanctuary, figure out what we needed to pack, and finally prepare a grocery list for when we stopped in Playa Del Carmen before checking in. We had a few minor hiccups (internet issues, rowdy neighbors, slippery floor) but Hans was extremely responsive and between him, the property manager, housekeeping and the other staff we were able to get items addressed quickly.
I am so glad that Hans and Joan opened their home to us and really appreciate everything they have available to their guests as well as what great hosts they are (not to mention how quickly they responded to us). We would definitely recommend their place to both couples or families!
Thanks for your patience and help in clearing up the hiccups ! It's nice to have communicative guests too !
Relaxing in great location!
We have stayed at Mi Casa Del Mar twice before, but in a second floor condo. We love this location and condo complex! Close to everything and well maintained! The security guard was a nice addition. Although we have never felt unsafe in Akumal, we appreciated the owners taking this extra precaution.
If your instinct is telling you to get out of Cancun and head south then you are on the right track! The location of Hans' and Joan's condo cannot be beat. The condo was so spacious and had such an authentic Mexican feel. Walking along the shore toward Akumal Bay you will find chunks of brain coral and fossilized coral everywhere and iguanas sunning themselves on the rocks. We did the monkeys and the dolphins and manatees and ziplines, conveniently located...so it is a true case of location location location. How great is it to swim some laps in the pool and eat breakfast on the ocean front patio daily. We walked everywhere and then relaxed in the awesome condo and I think the pictures speak for themselves. It was just so comfortable and tidy and well-equipped. It was a quiet, peaceful, clean, and secure condo and neighborhood. My husband had to work last minute and I went with my daughter who is 6 by myself and we had a fabulous time. Gracias, Hans y Joan!
A wonderful review - thanks very much, you're awesome !
An easy one-hour drive south of the Cancun airport will get you to one of the world's most beautiful vacation locations in Akumal. Mi Casa del Mar is ideally located between two near-by beaches: Akumal Bay - a swimming beach with beautiful soft, white sand near the town of Akumal with great restaurants, food stores and cute little shops, - and Half Moon Bay, a snorkeling bay with coral reefs, a great beach restaurant, and dive shop. Akumal is a quiet retreat located in the Mayan Riviera and is famous for snorkeling (Yal Ku Lagoon), excellent scuba diving and many other activities. An easy drive takes you to many fabulous beaches, eco water parks Xel Ha and Xcaret, and breath-taking cenotes. Akumal has ideal proximity to the ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum, Coba, Ek Balaam and Chitzenitza.. The area is ecologically protected and famous for its sea turtle nesting grounds (Akumal means 'place of the turtle'). Internet is available in our beautiful building.
Other Activities: sun-bathing, shopping, Robinson Crusoe tours and turtle watching in summer
Eco: In the summer months night walking tours are available close by to watch turtles come on beaches to nest. It is a very special place.
