Watching sunrise over ocean. Solitude. Wonderful location. WIFI capacity. Enjoyed walking down seashore around corner to Half-Moon Bay, snorkelying Akumal Bay. Spotted Eagle Ray. Would definitely return.

Stayed in the casita for eleven days and loved it. Good to have transport as it is a bit off the beaten track, but worth the extra money on a hire car to be in such a lovely spot. Very clean and well equipped, all the staff friendly and helpful. Shame there is no sea view from the casita but... More

I have to admit I was a little anxious after reading the last review just days before we visited. It could not have been further from the truth! This was a dream spot in every way. After a lovely welcome from the staff and later that evening from Natalie, the owner, we enjoyed an all too brief four days at... More

We stayed in the Casita at Yal Ku Cai. This has to be the best kept secret in Akumal. For $70/night you get a very comfortable king sized bed (with soft sheets!), dining area, full kitchen, living room with tv, access to a BBQ and a pool, maid service, walking distance to the lagoon, with the sound and view of...

We rented the one bedroom casita. It had a bedroom with a king size bed, a kitchen with a dining table, a bathroom and a living room with a tv. The casita is very private and close to the pool where a barbeque is available for cooking. The maid service was excellent and the property is very well maintained by... More

Yal Ku Cai A+! An incredible value in Akumal! Everyone involved with the property was outstanding. Very private; amazing view of the ocean; stones throw to Yal Ku Lagoon. I can't wait to return.

This is a wonderful condo if your goal is to hear the waves, be by yourselves and hardly see a sole. Fantistic staff, beds were just ok, no coffee grinder as advertized (or kettle), but no big deal here. We spent most of our time on the deck and walked and biked into town a few days.

We had a terrific experience renting YalKu Cai condo with Sol Maya Rentals. From beginning to end the service was outstanding-with a warm, personal touch. We had amazing views of the ocean from every window. The condo was spotless, comfortable and nicely decorated. Free WiFi, free safe.The maid service was great. Nice pool. We loved the location as it was... More

This is one of the best deals in Akumal: a two-bed, two-bath condo with an unobstructed sea view, cute kitchen and pool. If you're looking for something for a family or two couples of any age, this condo is a great deal. You are walking distance from the beautiful cove of Yal Ku where you can snorkel and a short...
