“Almost Too Good To Be True”

This is the first time our family has rented a home on the beach with a swimming pool. It could not have been better. There was space for everyone - ages ranging from 6 to 65! We have Mirna and Luis prepare 6 meals for us and it was worth every penny. We chose 2 nights in a row for meals as Mirna shops for the meals and there is a charge for the shopping. So we had two meals prepared by them and then we prepared two of our own meals. Having them cook for us really made this a vacation for all of us. Both Mirna and Luis did an exceptional job of keeping the home and outside tidied up for us and we barely knew they were there. We had a full moon while we were there and the rooftop terrace was exceptional for that. The wifi worked great and Lunda has really thought of everything and she was always there for me when I had a question. I imagine we will rent it again for another family Thanksgiving. THANKS SO MUCH!!!

Six of us, consisting of my family and friends, spent four nights and five days in this gorgeous paradise. Mirna cooked for us the first night of our stay. I believe this is one of her specialties, a wonderful pork dish, with beans, rice, guacamole and a few other sides. She's a great cook! This gave us a chance to relax, settle in and explore the house and beach. The pictures of the villa, property and beach are exactly as lovely as they look!! The view is simply breathtaking from almost ever room! We very much enjoyed using the kayak and snorkeling was great right off the beach, which is just steps away. I think that's what so perfect about this villa, everything is right at your fingertips.

Mirna and Luis were so nice and helpful. My daughter took advantage of Mirna's massage skills and said it was truly fabulous.

Every meal we ate out was great too. Akumal is such a quaint little town and everyone was friendly. Our favorite restaurants were The Turtle Cafe for breakfast, la Buena Vida and Lol-Ha for dinner.

We are hoping to plan another trip very soon to this fabulous villa and paradise!

“When Can We Go Back??”

Our family just returned last night from one of the best vacations that we have ever had. The only reason I hesitated giving Akumal Breakers 5 stars is that I am afraid that when we want to return, we will have a hard time finding a vacancy. This place is AMAZING though, and too good not to share!!
We had a group of 8 and the house was laid out perfectly for us. There were large tables both inside and outside for us to eat together. And plenty of space for us to relax and lounge together. The house is also very large and there are plenty of rooms and spaces (including a rooftop!) where everyone can spread out and have quiet time.
The house sits directly on the sandy beach with an amazing reef just off the shore. This is some of the best snorkeling in the area with no crowds, just your own private paradise.
Late at night (around 11:00), you can venture out to the beach and find mother turtles making nests and laying their eggs. If this interests you, make sure you bring flashlights with red bulbs. White lights are bad for the turtles.
Mirna and Louis are the on-site hosts and they do an amazing job taking care of everything inside and outside of the house. On three different nights, we had Mirna shop and cook for us. She makes delicious fajitas!! Don't miss out! We also had fresh fish and steak which were also delicious!!
We had such a good time that we can't wait til we can return to Akumal Breakers!!

We just had the MOST AMAZING family vacation to Akumal Breakers. It has been several weeks since we got home and our whole family still group texts every morning to reminisce of the incredible week we all had together at this place. The photos online are gorgeous, but in person this place will truly BLOW YOUR MIND. We walked in and my sister immediately exclaimed that she had not been to a nicer vacation home in her life. TRUTH for us all. The home is exquisite, comfortable, spacious, relaxing, and feels like a private mansion on the beach. The beach area is truly a personal and private PARADISE. You will not have a better cup of coffee in your life after you watch the sunrise under the mangrove tree behind this home. The reef was gorgeous with amazingly colored fish and we snorkeled/floated every day in the beach bath tub. We want to THANK Mirna and Luis from the bottom of our hearts for their INCREDIBLE SERVICE and CARE. We ate their cuisine almost every night and their food is THE WAY TO GO!! You will not want to leave this house because there's nothing more to want when you have chef style food prepared in the home, massages on the beach (also provided by Mirna and Luis), and the house/beach tended to every day. THANK YOU for this amazing vacation for our family. It is one we will all NEVER forget.

“Just Like Home --- And Better!”
Reviewed March 16, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

person found this review helpful

"Simply fabulous" describes our week-long stay at Akumal Breakers. The location is fantastic and the home is the perfect mix of comfort and space. We enjoyed the common areas both indoors and out and found the bedrooms and bathrooms to be first rate. We were so comfortable the entire time and commented over and over how Akumal Breakers was just like home - and even better thanks to the picture perfect beach and bay.

Mirna and Luis add something special to the experience with their smiles, pride in maintaining the property, easy going nature and incredible cooking! Mirna's chili relleno and pork pibili are must haves. We also enjoyed massages on the beach during the morning hours - what a memory!

The interactions with Lunda before, during, and after our trip were timely, direct, and very helpful. It's clear customer service is a priority.

The house is perfect for a small family or a larger group. Anyone who experiences Akumal Breakers will realize why those of us who have called it "home" for even a few days consider it a very special place.

“Most Awesome Time”
Reviewed March 10, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

person found this review helpful

Our group had the most amazing time at Akumal Breakers. The house was beautiful and stocked with many items that rental houses usually do not have (sugar, coffee, water, Apple TV). We had Mirna cook for us the first night and it was a great way to begin our vacation. A few people from the group also took advantage of Mirna's massages and were very satisfied.
We spent many hours sitting in the Adirondack chairs watching the waves and just enjoying the location. The best beach in the area. We enjoyed kayaking and snorkeling in front of the house (lots of fish and sting rays).
We walked into town and few times for lunch and dinner. We loved Turtle Bay Cafe and La Buena Vida.
The house's location can't be beat. Away from the crowds, but close enough to easily get to Akumal, Playa Del Carmen and Tulum. We took advantage of the collectivos which were very easy and cheap!
Hope to visit Akumal Breakers again.
