Onsite restaurant was very nice. It was too rough for us to get in the bay, but the pool was lovely! The people who cleaned daily were fantastic!! Beds were comfortable. Loved the deck with table and hammock. There are shutters separating the master bedroom from the main room. Pretty, could not see through, but could conversations between the room. A little awkward for 2 couples sharing the space. A little extra planning required.
Close enough to walk to Akumal Bay where the snorkeling in front of Secrets was awesome!! We saw turtles, rays and beautiful fish!! We enjoyed happy hour at the onsite restaurant and down the road at La Buena Vida. Would definitely recommend!
Thank you very much for your kind comments about your stay at Hacienda de las Tortuga condo 4. We are so pleased that the service you received was exceptional. The door is open for a return anytime. It was such a pleasure to host you as our guests! Thanks for your recommendation!
Great location, spacious and clean
This condo is located in beach community which is essentially one long road with 4-5 story condos and small hotels along one side, which all sit on the beach. This condo is on the second floor and looks out at the ocean and the pool. The beach is really nice (seaweed is cleared away daily) and there are chairs for guests to use. The condo is cleaned daily and the restaurant onsite has an eclectic menu with good food.
Thank you very much for your lovely feedback, Meghann!
We appreciate you staying with us and we're glad to hear you've had a great stay.
We hope to have you back soon! :)
Warm regards, Akumal Direct Team
Everything about our stay & about this place speaks comfort. Your true home away from home with amazing views & the caressing sea breeze rushing in the moment you glide back the sliding glass windows. It literally has everything you could possibly need while on vacation.
Third trip to Akumal Bay Area last 10 years. Stayed at Hacienda 5 nights. Everything perfect.
Beautiful condo second floor walk up. Really nice, highly recommend. Right on beach; ocean view from porch nice but patially obscured by palm trees on adjoining undeveloped lot. Sand beach, lounge chairs and shaded thatched beach tables dedicated to condo owners and guests. Is rocky once into water, but sandy area just to north. Snorkeling very good. From beach you can look out and see a dark area with inverted “V” pointing in your direction maybe 100 yards out. You can literally walk all the way out. Beautiful extensive area of coral reef with tons of fish. Jus to the right of the “V” is an area of huge “head/brain” coral. Saw turtle, stingrays, all kinds of fish, huge mantra ray that totally freaked out another person. To really explore this entire area I would recommend a life jacket, but I was the only one who wore one. Not crowded at all. We had no problem with seaweed. So many changes over last 10 years, so much more tourist interest but still a great place to kick back. If you go to Yal-Ku lagoon, make sure you get there when it opens, never crowded before when we visited, but this time when we arrived at 1:00 pm on a weekday it was packed with snorkeled who kick up sand/sediment and obscure visibility. If you like wine, go to the convenience store a few hundred yards south on the left as you are driving towards the condo, decent selection with bottle prices as low as 180 pesos. La BuenavVida restaurant maybe one kilometer south of condo right on beach fun place for breakfast, dinner or lunch but when we were there slight smell of raw sewage was a turn-off. This smell is also prevalent at certain spots while driving to condo but we never noticed it at condo. We have gone to all the restaurants, best for dinner, by far, is “Taverna”, for breakfast, “turtle bay cafe and bakery”, be careful with turtle bay meals are so huge and good that you can overindulge limiting your ability to function. We did not even go down to Akumal Bay, have so many good memories of snorkeling with turtles all around in what are now closed off areas accessible apparently at the perimeter only by high priced tour guides, did not want to ruin, also reviews of public swim are less than desirable
Thank you for taking the time to offer praise for your lodging choice at Hacienda de las Tortuga located on Half Moon Bay beach in Akumal. We also appreciate the helpful advice that you have extended to future guests. Yes, there have been many changes in our area in the last 10 years as the world has discovered the Riviera Maya. We are pleased that you feel Akumal remains a great place to kick back and relax! We appreciate your business and we will look forward to your next visit to Mexico. Repeat guest discounts are offered so please check back with us when you are planning your next vacation!
Fantastic Honeymoon Condo
Let me start by saying this condo lived up to all of our expectations. This was my first time staying in Mexico and my husband had only visited resorts in the past. We were looking for a condo that was more private than the resort style condos for our Honeymoon, Hacienda de la Tortuga Unit 4 did not disappoint! We like to do most of our own cooking while on vacation due to food allergies. We were able to find all the groceries we needed at the large grocery in Tulum and found all cook wear and dishes to make whatever meal we desired in the condo. Enjoying meals and cocktails on the patio was wonderful. For a great dinner out right on the beach a walk down to La Lunita for some excellent shrimp tacos. We enjoyed a moonlit dinner on our first night in Akumal that was delicious.This condo is kept spotless due to the housekeeping staff who made sure every speck of sand was removed and we were greeted with new towel animals daily. Roberto is extremely helpful about anything you may want to see or do. There is a security guard out front who checks to make sure that you are guests at the condo and also patrols the property. The grounds are well maintained and the maintenance crew is constantly removing the sea grass and keeping the beach raked. We rented some snorkel gear a short walk from the condo at Akumal Dive Adventures and snorkeled right in front of the condo, in addition, to the beautiful fish and coral, we even saw Barracuda. If relaxing on a beach without a crowd of people and enjoying breathtaking views from your own comfy condo is your idea of vacation, than Hacienda de la Tortuga Unit 4 is for you.
Congratulations on your marriage! :) We appreciate your kind words and lovely comments. We will look forward to your return for your anniversary celebrations in the future. Thank you for staying with us! All the best, Akumal Direct Reservations.
