Made a last minute visit to Akumal without any room reservation. Visited office about 2 minutes before closing and managed to get a room. The place is lively with a fabulous beach view. Room was fairly large and well equipped. Great location. I would highly recommend.

The condo is MASSIVE and well appointed. Tons of room and kept very well except for the linens. I have to hope they were clean but just very old and tired and need desperately to be replaced. We slept on our towels the first night as the sheets were visibly stained and the condo is not staffed after 6pm at...

We loved our condo "E" at The Reef on Half Moon Bay. It's on the second floor. Most reviews say the first floor are the best but I disagree. First floor always has their curtains and drapes closed because when they didn't everybody walking by has a clear view of them on the inside... Being on the 2nd floor was...

We have stayed here many times, as a family of 5....when the kids were little, when they were teenagers. Honestly, it's just so peaceful and beautiful! Walk out to the surf....snorkel right in front of the condos. Nice balcony. Clean!!! Love the ability to walk to restaurants. LOVE YaKul lagoon.

I stayed in Condo "C" which is on the ground level. I spent a lot of time looking for my location for a 3+ week stay and am delighted that I decided on The Reef Condo "C". The owner has given much time, thought and investment to make this condo truly Mexican. Unlike many "off the shelf" condos all down...

We stayed in unit "A" and thought it was a very nice place. Nicely decorated. The price was right too. We would go back in the future EXCEPT for 2 things. #1 .. the bed is hard! Not firm --- HARD!

For our return to Akumal we decided to stay at The Reef instead of in one of the villas at Akumal Sur. We were a group of 5 so we stayed in a 2 bedroom on the second floor. We had beautiful views of the ocean, beach sunrise and set. I have many good things to say about the accommodations....

We were in condo C on the ground floor which was great as we didn't have to walk up the stairs and could just straight out onto the beach. Comfortable and clean, great daily maid service and well equipped kitchen including juicer so we had fresh orange juice every morning. Getting into the sea off the condo was a bit...
