Casa Texana is, in a word, breathtaking! The villa is a slice of heaven in Akumal Sur. With four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms -- all of which are tastefully decorated and modern -- the villa had more than adequate space for my family of four. The beach is steps away from the villa and the snorkeling is amazing! We saw a few rays and numerous technicolor fish. The pool is well-maintained and warm and the staff -- Gaby and Christina -- are helpful and friendly. They prepared a meal for us on our last night. It was delicious and a welcome respite from eating out every night. Our overall experience was amazing and we will most certainly be back next year. If it is available and you can swing it, go to Casa Texana!
Beautiful, spacious, well-maintained private home with great pool for family of all ages and steps from crystal, clear waters! The home was perfect for multiple families and had plentiful dinning and entertain spaces too. There was plenty of space to spread out and relax as well. Super kid friendly with multiple cribs, high chairs and a stroller. The shallow portion of the pool was perfect for our 11 month old to play as we sat alongside on the edge, the deeper area was great for the big kids and their was a nice ledge sounding that area that was great for the adults! Great place for our kids to learn to snorkel. We spotted plenty of fish, sea urchins and even an Eagle Ray the size of a small car! We walked each day on the private street as well as the beach and found both to be very protected and secured. Loved the central location between Tulum and Playa del Carmen and the quick access to downtown Akumal. Gabby, the cook, covered it all from preparing the beach and pool each day for us along with 3 authenticly cooked meals daily. The cleaning lady, was their each morning freshening the house. No cooking or cleaning made this such a luxurious experience! Lots of great weather, restful sleep and escape from reality has left our family completely recharged! We will definitely be back!!
We had a fabulous time in Akumal and casa texana! The house was lovely and the staff was kind and very attentive to our needs! Thank you Gabby for the wonderful meals that you prepared-we couldn't have gotten better at any restaurant! Roger-thanks for all the recommendations and making sure we had everything we needed! Overall experience was outstanding and hope to return to casa texana again!!
If you want to live in a Corona commercial with the best service, staff and amenities then this is your beach. A quiet sanctuary amongst the rampant resorts on this coast. With a private beach that is unrivaled in the area. Plus amazing golf across the highway.
Where do I begin? Casa Texana in Akumal Sur is a stunning property with wonderful amenities. The gorgeous home is set right on the beach which boasts the second largest barrier reef. The water is warm, crystal blue and usually very calm which makes for great snorkeling, swimming and kayaking- bring your water shoes! Casa Texana's staff are talented in the kitchen, accommodating and very kind. The charming town of Akumal is just a 5 minute cab ride away- it has shopping, snorkeling with turtles, restaurants and bars- even one with swings. The Mayan ruins of Tulum and the town of Tulum are a short drive away too. I have been visiting Casa Texana for 3 years running and hope I'm blessed enough to visit Casa Texana again and again. Salud!
The house is gorgeous, comfortable, clean, and spacious! The bedrooms are a great size with plenty of space to put your clothes -- each has it's own full bath also with great vanity space and beautiful showers. We had no shortage of common space to gather for cocktails, meals, cards and convos -- we took full advantage of all of it -- large den/bar space upstairs with a patio/balcony with dining table and sitting area AND an AMAZING pool/deck directly in back....few more steps out and you are on the ocean. Important to note and great for kids -- a section of the pool is more of a wading pool (ummm...was pretty great for adult pool lounging as well :) ) Staff is sweet, efficient and accommodating. Town is super close by -- walk or cab it! This is our 3rd visit and will not be our last!

The home, pool, proximity to the beach was stunning and just what the doctor ordered. The home was spacious for our group of 5, and the staff were friendly and impeccable. Plus, the towns were a short 5-7 minutes away!!!!
