4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2012

This is our first time staying at The Reef unit C. It's on the main level and has a patio w a small table. Also a full kitchen which was in working order (except for toaster oven which isn't fully functioning). Overall we enjoyed the condo. I can think of only 2 negatives: the shower takes 10 minutes to get hot water and it's very low water pressure. And the condo is dark because it's set back a little ways from the beach right next to La Bahia condos. They have beach chairs and a safe in the room. We always enjoy Akumal and we would stay at Reef C again. We saw sea turtles in the bay right in front of the condo.

Loved it. Great local, reasonable rates. Friendly staff. The place was actually nicer that I thought it was gonna be. The only thing that's need improving are the beds. They are just really hard. Would go back.

The Reef Condominiums in Akumal is an excellent place to stay and enjoy sun, water and underwater life. The Penthouse is beautifully furnished, with everything you need while on vacation. Moreover, when not on the beach or in water, two huge terraces allow for having great time outside, with a gorgeous view of Half Moon Bay or a jungle. This is a dream place we would like to visit every year.

My husband and I stayed in this pristine one bedroom unit for a week. Our friend stayed comfortably on the sofa bed by the sliding glass doors steps from the beach. The sounds of the Caribbean surf on the white sand and the sunrises were delightful. The condo is artfully decorated by the owner, Gloria, from her travels. Don't miss her Goddess mosaic in the bathroom. We shopped at the friendly pueblo nearby and the housekeeping staff cleaned up after us. Other evenings we enjoyed dining at local resaurants on the beach. The snorkeling and swimming with the fish turtles were a treat. We would return in a heart-beat and feel we were welcomed home.

I stayed in this condo at Akumal this summer and had an amazing time! The little village atmosphere is so safe, welcoming, and convenient. The condo itself, was very charming, clean, and comfortable. The condo is not only pristine and artfully decorated inside, but is situated right on the beach only steps from the water's edge. One of the highlights of our stay was seeing the sea turtles laying thier eggs on the beach under a full moon, right outside the condo. What a truly fabulous experience!! Highly recommended!

I have stayed in this wonderful one bedroom unit several times over the lat 6 years. There is nothing quite like waking up to the sounds of the Caribbean waves lapping at the white sand beach right outside the front doors. This charming casita welcomes the visitor with authentic and beautiful local art and quality appointments. The full-function kitchen has everything one needs to prepare tasty home-cooked meals - a nice change from eating out continuously. The unit is impeccably maintained - I've never experienced anything except squeeky-clean. The housekeeping staff is efficient and gracious, and seem to time their daily tasks so that you never see them come or go - magic! This is a perfect place to stay for a week or a lifetime!

We have been staying in this beautiful one bedroom condo for many years and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Akumal. The condo is thoughtfully appointed with personal touches by the owner including wine and margarita glasses! My first cup of coffee is always at the beach watching the breath taking sun rise slowly on the horizon. Then, there are the turtles in the ocean in front of me having their breakfast. We feel comfortable and secure here and the privacy of Unit A can't be beat. It's our home away from home every year for a month. One word to describe all: priceless!
