“We had an absolutely wonderful time in your beautiful home!”
Reviewed March 21, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

The location is just perfect--the beach is right outside your door! This is an excellent family-friendly home with a beautiful pool, well-stocked kitchen, and helpful people on site. There are numerous nearby attractions--Mayan ruins to visit, cenotes and lagoons to snorkel, caves to explore, and delicious restaurants. We will definitely be back! Mirna and Louis were exceptional. Thank you for our wonderful vacation.

“Pefect home for families who do not want the "all-inclusive experience"”
Reviewed March 9, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We are a large extended family (11 of us including 5 kids ages 3-11). Everything about our stay at Akumal Breakers was amazing. We had such a great time. Mirna and Luis were both so helpful, kind and warm. We had them do some shopping and prepare 2 dinners for us during our stay. Based on other reviews, we asked for the pork dish and, man, was that ever delicious!! I would highly recommend it. Mirna and Luis are available to do more but with us having a car, we did most of the shopping and cooking ourselves.

Our kids loved the pool, the adults loved the snorkeling. We snorkeled right from our beach and we saw so many varieties of fish and even saw a few sting rays. The "snorkeling with the turtles beach" was very close by, however, during our trip it was closed due to a government conservation project. Turned out, though, that we saw so much great stuff right from our own beach that we really didn't miss it.

We rented a large van so we were able to go out for some sight-seeing and adventuring. We highly recommend Dos Ojos Cenotes. While my mother-in-law and the little kids (ages 3 & 4) didn't go in, everyone else did... including kids ages 11, 8 and 7. We brought our own snorkel gear but they do have some available there. They provided us with wet suits and, for those who needed them, life jackets. We swam through the cenotes, marveling at the stalactites and stalagmites and ventured into a bat cave (which the kids especially liked). Underneath, you could see the scuba divers who were adventuring through underwater caves.

Some of our group also took a trip to Xel Ha Park on our last day. It ended up being the highlight of the trip for them. We ate dinner in Akumal and visited the ruins in Tulum. We ate our meals at the outdoor table and went for night swims in the pool. We napped and read in the hammocks. Everything was clean and well maintained. The places we went to visit were so close by and convenient. This was one family vacation we will not soon forget. We loved it so much that we have already started talking about returning to Akumal Breakers sometime in the future.

“Great Family Vacation at a Reasonable Price”
Reviewed February 28, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Though we have been West Coasters for many years, in each of our four visits to the Yucatan, we have found that part of the Caribbean it to be the quietest, most relaxing area of Mexico. Akumal Breakers is a very well designed house and property, situated on one of the nicest sections of beach in the well protected Bay of Akumal. The common areas are spacious and comfortable, the bedrooms are roomy, quiet, and private, and the yard/beachfront has everything you might want. As a family group of eight, ranging in age from 11 to 70+, we found something for everyone - from the water sports and relaxation in our backyard, to daytime outings for natural wonders and archeologic history, to simple local dinners prepared at home or nearby in Akumal, to the laid-back chic of Tulum Beach, 35 minutes away, with its many excellent but simple restaurants.

All in all, it would be hard to find a better warm weather getaway for our group.

“Best Family Vacation!”
Reviewed January 4, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

people found this review helpful

We take an annual trip to Mexico with our 2 little ones and another family with a little girls as well + a nanny (5 adults 3 kids total). We usually stay at a big resort but we wanted more space and decided to try Akumal Breakers! We will NEVER look back and are rebooking already a year in advance and extending our stay because we loved it so much! Every single detail was perfect, from the layout, to the direct beautiful beach access, to the sand toys/paddle boards and kayaks. The staff was so kind and accommodating, including participating in our crazy last night dance party with the kids!- considering we needed grocery trips almost everyday- they didn't make a fuss! The food that was prepared was authentic, so delicious and it felt like family dinners every night. I wish we found this house earlier, but now that we have, we will go no where else! Hands down- the BEST family vacation.

Pros: stunning house, beautiful soft sandy beach, large pool, large rooms, so thoughtfully laid out and planned, amazing staff.
Cons: ZERO

Take a home that makes you feel like it is yours with all the creature comforts you would require, add the most breathtaking views plus the amazing staff of Luiz and Mirna and you get the most awesome Mexican experience. This was our first trip to Akumal and the place is stunning, Akumal breakers with its own beach right out back make this an experience perfect for couples and families with small children. You can opt for meals made and just bask in the atmosphere or make your own. I could write a book that would do this place no justice, go there you will thank me!

“A fantastic week at Akumal Breakers!!”
Reviewed September 11, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

person found this review helpful

Just returned from a week at Akumal Breakers, and it was easily one of our best stays in Mexico - EVER! The home is beautiful, clean, well appointed, and the property and location just couldn't be more ideal. I'm pretty sure you could throw a coconut from the back porch of the home and land it in the ocean, that's how close it is to the water. As you can see in the photos, right out the sliding back doors of the home is the wonderful pool (kept clean daily!), no less than three hammocks and FIVE separate seating areas all spread over the most beautiful grounds with sugar white sand and a pristine beach with crystal clear blue-green waters perfect for swimming and snorkeling (with giant turtles!) As far as beach vacations go, it really doesn't get any better than this.

We had our three children with us (ages 8, 6, and 3) and the home was perfectly set up for their enjoyment, with an assortment of pool and beach toys already there waiting for us. The interior of the home was ideal as well, with spacious bedrooms, good air conditioning (don't worry when you first get there it may seem hot because each room has its own unit that needs about a day to cool the space, but by the second day it will be frigid :-) and a wonderful living room/entertainment area where we watched movies each night on their modern AV setup (flatscreen TV and the latest/greatest apple TV device!)

And last but certainly not least: the wonderful caretakers of the home, Mirna and Luis, made our entire stay as comfortable and enjoyable as we could have hoped. We opted to have them grocery shop and prepare meals for us daily, and their delicious home-cooked Mexican cuisine was a highlight of the trip. The home and grounds were also kept spotless daily, even the sand was raked each morning! It was the best of both worlds: like staying with family and also like staying in a top-notch hotel at the same time! And Lunda, the property manager, was very responsive and helped us with every aspect of the reservation from arrival to departure and everything in between.

Highly, highly recommended!

“Summer Sun Fun”

Beautiful Mexican home right on the beach.
Plenty of room for all 3 of my teenagers to each have their own room.
Sea Kayaks and paddle boards were a nice feature.
Without question the best attribute of the property is the proximity to the ocean/beach. We enjoyed our coffee every morning under the palm trees 10 feet from the ocean.
The only small negatives were the shower water pressure and time required to get hot water flowing. A dishwasher would have been nice as well.

All in all, would stay there again if in Akumal.
