Why Maria Colandrea chose Akumal

Personal Note from the Owner:

What makes Akumal charming and fascinating for tourists to visit is its spectacular bay with crystal clear waters and underground rivers. Akumal is one of the most peaceful places in the Riviera Maya. After visiting Cancun for over 10 years and owning a home in Playa del Carmen for just the same amount of time I needed to move away from the frantic, hectic pace that Cancun and Playa has grown into. I live near Miami so I find it to be very similar. Akumal offers that peace of mind and relaxation away from all the hustle and bustle.

What makes this condo unique

Addl Note:

Cleaning:Please note that the $50 cleaning fee collected at time of booking is to cover for the cleaning service when you check out along with inventory control of unit. If you require additional cleaning throughout your stay it is an extra charge. You can check with Enrique, my property manager at time of check in to discuss number of times required, days needed and cost. He is very reasonable and I do suggest it!

very clean, very nice, wifi extra

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the only the only thing that we didn't like was when we got there was a $30 fee to connect with the wifi. The location was nice and the apt. was clean.

Owner's Response: Hello Dawn, thanks so much for your kind review. We strive to keep our clients extremely satisfied 100% of the time! We are always maintaining our unit so it shows well and is comfortable and enjoyable for your stay. I'm sorry about the WIFI, however you were made aware of this quite a few times first on the VRBO listing itself, then in our house rules agreement which you signed and then in your check in/welcome letter where it is also mentioned. Some carriers do indeed pick up on the WIFI service that comes from the hotel next door. I for one never had an issue picking up service through my Verizon carrier. I also have had quite a few past clients who have accomplished the same. However there are some who unfortunately are not able to capture and must get the online access code from hotel which is $30. Hey if that is the biggest issues of them all then your trip went extremely well and I am happy you enjoyed your stay!

The condo was great and exactly as described

Owner's Response: Hi Merryann, thanks for your review and input. Sorry your internet connection wasn’t as strong as you would have liked. Luckily the majority of our guests thus far have not experienced internet connectivity issues. Your home carrier has something to do with this as I understand. Ahhh sargasso, the fancy word for seaweed :) we have been fortunate to not have had a drop of seaweed over the last several months. Ocasionally (thankfully quite infrequently) you will find sargasso washing up our shores. Something that has to be dealt with I guess with climate change. But all in all sounds like you had great fun! It was nice having you and please come again. Maria

This is a neat place, even better than the pics!

  • 5 of 5

As you are heading down the long driveway into this place you ask yourself what did you get yourself into? Then you arrive, and walk out onto your patio that is nearly touching the sea and the question is answered; AWESOME!!!

Sand, palms, pool and the ocean are all there. Right off your ground floor patio. It doesn’t get any better. The studio is fun and the bed is comfortable. Very comfortable. Kitchen is ample enough to make meals. Thank you for providing such a nice clean place to relax.

Owner's Response: Hi Mark, how deceiving is that long driveway to the property? lol, It isnt the first time I've heard it but once they get to the end of the road and onto the property it is like a diamond in the rough! I love my little gem and glad you guys enjoyed it too! Come again. We look forward to your revisit. thanks!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

Maria’s unit was as advertised. Great space with your very own large patio with a table, chairs and lounge chairs a stones throw to the water. The unit supplied everything needed for cooking, coffee maker, toaster, blender. Maria was quick to respond to any questions and Enrique checked on us every couple of days to make sure we had everything we needed. If you like to take beach walks you can go a good mile one way and the other way about a two mile walk along beach the other way to get to downtown Akymal. Thank you Maria for sharing this little piece of heaven.

A Fabulous Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in Maria’s beautiful little condo by the ocean. From the description we knew what to expect; however, when we arrived our expectations were far exceeded as we gazed out the sliding glass doors onto our private, beachside patio. The pool is literally just steps away from the patio and the ocean is just a few steps beyond that!

The condo was clean, and very well-equipped for our long-stay. We ate in most of the time and had no problem preparing meals in the compact, but well-equipped kitchen. The washer and dryer were a huge benefit as clothes can take a long time to dry in the high humidity. The king-size bed was very comfortable, as was the pull-out sofa bed our daughter slept on.

Although we did encounter a few maintenance issues during our stay which had to do with the building and not with the unit itself, Enrique, the property manager was very attentive and was always available to help us out. Maria was also very easy to reach and went out of her way to ensure our stay was comfortable.

One thing we would recommend for guests planning a long-stay would be to rent a car. We decided against doing this to save money choosing instead to travel by Colectivo into Tulum to purchase our groceries. This worked OK; however, if we were to stay again we would probably rent a car to make buying groceries and going on excursions easier.

Overall, we had an amazing vacation. We can definitely recommend Casa Colandrea to other guests planning a trip to the area and would love to stay here again in the future.

Awesome beachfront stay!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I had a great week long stay at Casa Colandrea. The weather, beach and amenities were a close to perfect as you can get. We took walks on the beach, enjoyed a surf-side massage and lounged with drinks in the evening sun. We took advantage of the restaurants at the resort next door, especially breakfast at $10 each. October is a great time to stay as the resort and beaches were almost vacant. The resort offers a couples massage that is awesome, and would highly recommend.

We made trips into Tulum to explore some of the local cuisine and found many that were easy on the wallet and great on taste.

I would recommend a rental car at the airport. Its a easy drive to Akumal on nice a highway, comparable to US roads.

The only negative (4.5 vs 5 stars) to the stay was, it is described as a 1 bedroom. It is actually a studio, clean, well stocked and nicely decorated. But a studio just the same.I am an early riser, my wife is not ( LOL), which required me to tip toe around until she woke.

My wife has already said we will be back SOON. Thanks for the great stay
