La Bahia
Ranked #10 of 21 Speciality Lodging in Akumal
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We were in #2, but also saw #5. I think any condo in this building would be fine. It was well maintained, with friendly staff. It was nice to have the night time security around. It is close walking to La Buena Vida restaurant, as well as a couple of others, but maybe a little far to walk in to Akumal village, especially if it is hot. Lots of turtle nests on the beach, and close to the area where they release the baby turtles that were hatched during the day. We were very surprised by the good quality of the snorkeling in our bay. Much fewer people than Akumal Bay. Loved the beds here!

This is condo is well maintained and the staff is simply great all amenities and descriptions are accurate we are staying for a week and unit # 5 and everything is going perfect!
Only trouble find out how to use the coffee maker! lol and the minisplit at second room seems not to work at 100% the beach is wonderful and you have la buena vida at walking distance, great place!
If coming from Cancun make sure you buy groceries at Soriana Supermarket located on the SB lane of Highway 307 just passing downtown Playa

We stayed twice in unit #1. If you are looking for a peaceful place in the area, this is it. The condo is very tastefully decorated. The kitchen is perfectly stocked, all appliances are new and there is a faucet with filtered water. This condo has a small area right in front with plenty of shade from the palm trees. If you don’t want to be outside, you can open all the curtains and windows in the sitting area and you’ve got your own indoor lounge with a perfect view of the ocean and the beach on three sides. For sun lovers, there are plenty of loungers. La Bahia management and the owners are fantastic – anything that you need attended to in the condo gets done within the same day.

We've stayed at La Bahia in Akumal twice now, renting each time from the lovely Paul and Donna Clark. The first time was just myself and my fella, while the second was with another couple, and both visits were comfortable, well-furnished, and so close to the Caribbean waves you could almost touch them from your back door. The staff of La Bahia is always friendly and helpful, and you could easily spend your vacation just around the condo and feel like you got some serious R&R. We will only stay with La Bahia when we visit Akumal!

What a great property! La Bahia is in an extremely convenient location in the middle of Half Moon Bay and seems to be one of the better-maintained places (with onsite management) in this great vacation location.

We were in Unit 7 on the top floor, which is a hard climb the first few times but gets easier as the week goes on. The unit was well-equipped and beautifully decorated. Unlike all of the other condos, it has balconies overlooking both the jungle and ocean. Great for birdwatching and looking at the turtles in the bay.

In fact, one night the security guard climbed the four floors to let us know that a turtle was nesting on the beach. Seeing two different turtles nesting was an experience we'll never forget.

The one inconvenience was that the maid came somewhat late in the day and we barged in on her twice, once escaping from a rain shower and once when we were done with the beach and wanted to shower and go out for dinner. The immaculate cleanliness (and having someone to wash your dishes) more than makes up for it.

Highly recommended and extremely reasonable in the early part of the offseason.

Room Tip: They all seem to be great but because they're individually owned the decor and kitchen equipment...

I believe we stayed on a 2nd floor condo and it was great. The condo was big and the views were awesome. The sound of the ocean was soothing and it was nice to go right out and snorkel whenever we wanted. The condo had just about everything you would need. My favorite parts were the peace and quiet, the beautiful view, and the nice jungle view from the bathroom window. I can't wait to go back. I would definitely recommend La Bahia. I will post more photos of Akumal under Akumal on trip advisor.

We flew into Cancun after 4 nights in Oaxaca city. Akumal beach felt completely different. We were driving and after passing under the arch, it takes 5 or 10 minutes to get to La Bahia. We we arrive around 2:30, it was very warm but breezy. The office was closed, but one of the cleaning staff rushed to assist us.

As we climbed the stairs, the view was terrific and the breeze was awesome. She showed us #3 (second floor unit) which is what we had rented, and just for future reference, the one below, which I understood was owned by the husband of the owner of #3. Both were very nice, but I think the second floor has big advantages view (and probably breeze) wise.

When we returned to the office, the manager was back and she was also very friendly. Check in was ridiculously easy...no worries about cleaning fees, check out inspections, etc. It felt like we were staying at a nice hotel. Free purified water is refilled whenever you like, the unit was big and comfortable.

The beach was very nice. Swimming / snorkeling was good for the area although you need to go out a ways. Note that there is a submerged rock pathway that makes entry easier (we didn't find it until our last day).

Mostly American visitors it seemed to us. The nearby Turtle Bay Cafe has good quality food, but the menu is light on regional food.

After La Bahia we went to Tulum and stayed at the Nueva Vida de Ramiro which was more romantic, but if we return to the area we would stay at the La Bahia. Staying in a condo had a number of advantages and the overall experience was the best of our entire trip.

I want to end by repeating that the staff at La Bahia was great.
