Great condo in a nice location
My wife and I stayed for five days in March 2019.
The condo is very modern and clean, with a great view to the pool and the golf course.
It has a beautiful kitchen with all the necessary appliances, a living room to enjoy watching smart TV with Netflix, Youtube, a beautiful private bedroom and a nice terrace.
We rented a car in the airport because this place is a great alternative if you want the freedom to go around the Riviera Maya with many attractions and beautiful places, and also you have the opportunity to enjoy the Bahia Principe Resort. I recommend to buy an all inclusive day pass at least one day, as you will enjoy food and drinks for 24 hours.
We definitely will come back again.
Relaxing and enjoyable visit
We spent 10 days from Dec 26 2018, enjoying the pool and the freedom to have breakfast when we got up (not when the resort scheduled it for). This unit is close enough to the main resort that walking there is never a problem. We also regularly walked to the sister resort on the ocean (about 20 minutes). We never felt the need to use the shuttle that runs all the time - the distances just weren't far enough (plus getting enough exercise always seems an issue at Caribbean resorts :-) ) We rented a car (works out to about $50/day) so that we could get into playa for groceries, and try out restaurants in nearby akumal (which you could also walk to but walking the highways at night is less relaxing)
The facility itself is immaculately clean. We did have water problems though (as reported by another visitor the previous year) and we were without water (on and off) for about 18-24 hours. Otherwise though most things functioned as expected. There was wifi - but only 5g. If you have 2.4g devices (e.g. Kindle etc), you are out of luck. I did notice that many of the other units in this facility were broadcasting in both 5 and 2.4 and perhaps the owners of this unit will turn the 2.4 on in their unit too.
Watch out for the stove fan bezel - it was exactly at eye level, and after a couple painful eye pokes we hung cloths on its corners to prevent further injury.
The units deck was fantastic; we sat out on the deck every night reading and enjoying the ambiance. Coffee on the deck was a morning ritual too.
Our only bad day was Jan 1. The associated Bahai Principe resort played extremely loud techno music all day and it was impossible to get away from - even in our room we couldn't shut out the noise. The noise and strong bass was extremely annoying. It ran all day, never letting up. However, it was only for one day and then things got back to the peace &quiet we came for.
You contact the building manager over whats app. I've been a whatsapp user for over a decade, but could not configure the managers number to ever reach him.
You can buy a 24 hour resort meal pass, which we did occasionally. If you buy it in the evening (in the middle of the dinner service) then you can get two dinners, breakfast & lunch from one pass.
Overall we were very pleased with the unit and the facility. It was generally very quiet, the pool was never crowded and always clean, lots of potential for walks throughout the facility. We would go again.
Stay in Akumal
The location is an hour from the airport, easy access to beaches and adjacent hotels. If you looking for a quiet getaway this is a place to consider. We had a boiler issue that persisted throughout our stay and we were compensated for not having hot water. Otherwise condo was as described. I would recommend staying there as the boiler malfunction will most likely not occur. An honest review is always best and ultimately left for the next occupants to make their own decisions.
We really enjoyed staying here, the place is super comfortable and has all you need for your stay. I will definitely recommend it to anyone. The owner was very helpful with instructions and Manuel the onsite manager is also super helpful. The condo has a great view of the pool and golf course. There is security there at all times, and were very nice helping with our luggage. We were very sad to leave for sure. We hope to be back soon!
We had a fantastic stay.
We have stayed at many VRBO properties in Mexico, Dominican Republic, the USA and Canada. Most of them have been great; this stay was fantastic. The pictures and the desciption were excellent and this helped us to make our decision. And everything was as advertised. The unit was very well equipped, the bed and the bedding were exceptional. We slept very well during our 18 day stay.
Life in a paradise
Such a great place, as alternative to staying right in a resort. Place furnished with all new, great quality appliances and furniture, all we needed for stay was there. Very good wifi ( unlike resorts option of getting it in a lobby for extra pay). We were going to the beach in am and to condo’s pool in afternoon, hardly any people were there, had it all for ourselves. After hours we attended resorts entertainment options. Owners and property managers easy to reach, areas very clean, resorts staff helpful.
Make sure your transportation drops you at Terrazas; ours miscommunicated, left as at BP Akumal, took a while with laggage to get to the place. You also need to go to club house (10 min walk) to get their braselets, sometimes workers check for them on a beach.
