We stayed in the Casita at Yal Ku Cai. This has to be the best kept secret in Akumal. For $70/night you get a very comfortable king sized bed (with soft sheets!), dining area, full kitchen, living room with tv, access to a BBQ and a pool, maid service, walking distance to the lagoon, with the sound and view of the ocean right nearby. The managers, Caludia and JP, were great: helpful and friendly. All the staff was.
Only two things to be aware of: the internet access is iffy at its very best. Basically if you need to have reliable access, this is not the place. Also, though it is right next to the ocean, the beach at this spot is absolutely not swimmable. It is all rock, and not the kind you can sit on.
All in all I would give it 4.5 stars (.25 off for the misleading claim that there is wifi. Wifi in theory, yes, but not really. And .25 off for location--I would have loved to have been right on a swimmable beach. I didn't know to ask about that.)
We rented via Locogringo, and they were helpful and responsive to questions.
