We can't say enough about Casa Gatos. The Casita is very tastefully decorated, well stocked with everything you need, and very well constructed with fine detail. Dan and Dave went over the top with dozens and dozens of beautiful potted plants and flowering trees and bushes to give that colorful and fragrant garden patio finesse. The rooftop garden is exquisite... More

Loved the apt hotel and this inn! The hosts are wonderful and helpful and so accomodating, like friends you want to visit again. Close to everything we desired to see i.e. cenotes, lagoon, beach and ruins!

Casa Gatos, was a touch of paradise within walking distance of the ocean and the lagoon. Our hosts, Dan & David, couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. Simple, but lovely accommodations - each casita is an apartment with full kitchen, AC, TV, WIFI and delightfully comfortable beds. Clean & airy, with daily maid service. Akumal offers great restaurants, sandy... More

The setting was perfect. We went snorkeling in Yal Ku for hours-- it's beautiful cave walls and crevices filled with tons of fish especially around sunset. The blue tang and the parrot fish were other worldly and we even saw a huge eel.DAve and Dans friend lives on the lagoon so we were able to get in for free everyday.... More

My wife and I just spent 11 wonderful days at Casa Gatos. The accommodations were spacious, beautiful and more than comfortable (A/C, roof-top lounge area, fully equipped kitchen, TV, Wi-Fi). The location was perfect- a quiet spot filled with palm trees, flowering plants and vines and the gentle sound of a fountain. Snorkeling at Yal Ku lagoon was only a... More

My five friends and I just returned from a week at Casa Gatos. We took over the entire, beautiful place, parked our bicycles on the lawn, plugged our golf cart in through the gate and every day enjoyed all the fun of the Riviera Maya before scurrying back for rest and relaxation at our quiet hideaway in North Akumal.

We spent two weeks in Mexico, but our five days at Casa Gatos was our favorite part of the vacation. Dave and Dan are the most welcoming, accommodating, helpful, and gracious hosts we've ever met. They were so warm and friendly, and they gave us wonderful advice on places to visit in the area. They are just across the street... More

Had a very warm welcome and informative start to our stay. David and Dan are so proud of their set up and it shows. They were a great help, walking with us to show the places to eat and snorkel and put on a feast of a welcome breakfast. So glad we stayed here rather than Cancun. Recommended!
