My husband and I rented a condo at The Reef for 10 days and loved the experience! From watching the sunrise in the morning to snorkeling it was truly a fantastic experience. The area close to shore is a bit rocky, but with water shoes you'll be fine. The snorkeling is fantastic and there were sea turtles to enjoy on a daily basis. The bay has a few single family homes and several condo complexes, but always felt intimate and like were a handful of people there. The walk to La Bueno Vida or La Lunita for dinner and drinks was nice by moonlight. I'd suggest renting a place near the center or south end as the shoreline gets rockier the further north you go. I'd highly recommend this beautiful place for families and/or couples. If you want a smooth sandy beach Akumal is a short ride by car, bike or golf cart away, but you get the serenity of HMB. Yal Ku Lagoon is very close as well. Enjoy!
