We usually book around Puerto Morelos area but this year decided to go more south. We stayed at the Villas this year for the 1st time. Diana was great at booking and giving us little hints about the location and surrounding areas. The house we had was FANTASTIC!!! 3 bedroom, beautiful bathrooms, great living area and great patio on 2nd floor. Alfredo, the grounds manager, will greet you like a long lost friend and get you set up. He is the BEST!!! The pool is super quiet in lush surroundings…and the private “beach” area was perfect. Cleaned and raked every morning. The snorkelling off the beach was okay, but the Yal Ku lagoon right next door is amazing…if you are a stronger swimmer you can access the lagoon by the ocean (path right across from Que Onda resto)….Akumal beach is always stunning with the turtles, rays and squids…go super early or late afternoon to avoid the crowds….The restos are beyond belief…I own resto’s in Montreal and these are some of the best I’ve eaten at in Mexico. La Lunita was always great…friendly staff…perfect food…great Chef!!! The seafood place on the square was ridiculously good…best octopus I have ever had… Buena Vida is a typical toursity bar on the beach..nothing bad about it, but nothing great…staff were not overly friendly but it could be because they were so busy….All in all if you are looking for R&R this is your place…if you are looking for a walk in beach right outside your condo, this is not your place…BUT I will definitely be back next year..and maybe this Spring!!!
