My husband and I rented a 2nd floor studio room for the week and couldn't believe what we got for the price. It had a small kitchen with a refrigerator, microwave, hot plate, blender, toaster and service for 4. The bathroom had a sizable jacuzzi tub. There was quite a bit of storage space, a spacious deck, and ac, although we opted to keep the windows open to let in the breeze and listen to the ocean, which was mere feet away. The layout of the deck lends itself to complete privacy from neighboring rooms. Pelicans flew overhead daily. Turtles laid eggs on the beach nightly (we were there in July). It felt more like having our own little apartment than like staying in a hotel. Akumal is a wonderful, peaceful town. We walked along the beach every day and snorkeled with sea turtles at the public beach, about a mile from the hotel. Akumal is also central to several cenotes, where we cavern dove 5 out of the 6 full days we were there.
