“Magical, Friendly Oasis by the Lagoon”

We found Casa Gatos by a random search, but we feel like we lucked out beyond belief. The hosts were so welcoming and kind. The Casa was beautiful -- it's four apartments, and we stayed on the ground floor. There was a full kitchen, a living room, a very comfortable bedroom and gorgeous bath. We felt utterly spoiled. We rented bikes and loved pedaling around Akumal. It's close to snorkeling in both the lagoon and the bay.... how can I say enough?? We feel like we made dear friends and got a window into the community life of Akumal. We loved how quiet it was, too. Not tip-toe silent, but an oasis.

My wife & I spent a week at Casa Gatos with our 2 college age children. We had been to the Akumal area several times before & wanted to return, possibly for the last time, with the family. I picked Casa Gatos based upon the pictures & reviews. It was better! We rented the 3 bedroom townhouse & it was perfect. The kids took the upstairs & my wife & I the downstairs. The garden is beautiful & the weather was perfect. My son is a plant biology major & spent hours with Dan exploring the garden. The property was great! we spent most of our time, at the house, outside with the owners, other guests, & visiting neighbors. Each morning we would have fruit & coffee in the courtyard. We spent our days Scuba diving, exploring Mayan ruins, & local villages. Each day upon our return we would share our stories of the day with our hosts & then get another new recommendation for a great place for dinner. Our time with Dave & Dan was wonderful. The stories of their many years in the Yucatan were greatly appreciated. They all made us feel really welcome. They became like family. We appreciated their advice and their recommendations were invaluable. Don't worry about cat allergies. They are exclusively restricted to the owners apartment. If you are looking for a rental in Mexico we highly recommend Casa Gatos. Beautiful, friendly, & affordable. We seemed to be treated better all throughout Akumal as soon as they found out where we were staying. We'll be back! Be a local not a tourist.

We stayed a week as 7 adults in 102/103 Casa Gatos. At north end of Akumal, although we were not on the water, we were able to walk to the lagoon and to Half Moon Bay, and it was really nice being set back a bit from the steady ocean wind. Some of our group rented bicycles for US$30/week 2 blocks away, and apparently golf carts are available nearby as well. To get to the main Akumal Beach for snorkeling a car was handy for us.
We watched sunrise/set over the ocean each day from the rooftop. Upstairs rooms have beautiful mexican tile floors. Throughout, mahogany doors and trim and AC, which we really didn't need because of the ceiling fans and sea breeze . WiFi worked fine. Downstairs bedroom and LR/DR/kitchen have marble/travertine floors-- really beautiful. Fully equipped kitchen complete with coffee bean grinder! Our hosts upon our request arranged for a chef service for 4 nights (US$8-$9/per person per night plus cost of groceries) and we were delighted by the fresh seafood and other traditional Mayan dishes that the groundskeeper Juaquin's brother Jorge and wife Nami made for us. They are great cooks, and this saved $ for us over the Akumal restaurants, which mostly seemed to have menus priced like US.
David and Dan, our hosts, who live in the downstairs unit on the other side of the patio, are friendly and welcoming, and patiently answered our many questions. They have a cute little dog who is also friendly but will hide from you if you are wearing a big hat and sunglasses!
