Our unit was on the third floor and the views were stunning...right out over the beach. The condos are clean, and the housekeepers came every day and changed the beds mid-week. The staff (2 housekeepers and Jacinto, the groundskeeper) are all delightful, helpful and friendly.
Our unit had a master bedroom with a small queen bed and a private balcony overlooking the pool and beach. The second bedroom had 2 full sized beds and a full bathroom en suite.
The kitchen had everything we needed and there is even a little utility room off the kitchen where you can rinse out and hang up your sandy beach wear and suits. The satellite TV provided us with BBC so we could watch some TV in English in the evenings.
We used a grocery service (Rivera Maya Groceries- google it) to shop and deliver our groceries on the day we arrived. This was awesome! We ended up with a few interesting items because we weren't sure what we were ordering online, but it worked out just fine. I'm really glad we did this because we didn't rent a car and the nearest small grocery is near Akumal Beach, which is about a 25-30 minute walk, so hauling groceries would not have been fun.
The location of this condo is great. The beach right outside is georgous and Jacinto has it combed and cleaned every morning before you get up. You can snorkle right out the backdoor! To see bigger fish and more coral, you should go up the beach to the north a bit and swim out a ways...near where the waves break. We spotted lots of interesting sea creatures, and saw turtles.
There are a few restaurants close by and you can walk into Akumal, but it is a bit of a walk. Half Moon bay is way nicer, in my opinion, than Akumal Beach...beautiful, not crowded and friendly.
During our week there we: enjoyed the beach and snorkling, the pool, etc. Snorkeled at Yal Ku Lagoon (a 10 min walk), a walk into Akumal Puebla on the other side of the highway, a day at Akumal Beach, Tulum, Chichen Itza (caught our tour bus at the bus stop on the highway) and took a taxi to Xel Ha.
Convenient location, nice, clean place, great beach!
