We have stayed at several different places in Akumal, and decided to try the north end this time, as we were entranced by the pool and gardens last year when we stopped by. NOTE: this is a small bay, so the north end is only 2-3 minutes walking.
This is a beautiful complex, with a much larger, more private beach area; the gardens and pool are amazing, and wonderful to dip into after being on the beach all day. Since it is on the north end, its gets wonderful breezes, and the views were definitely tops. It is rocky when you walk into the water, but we have had issues with stubbing our feet walking in at the middle of the bay, at other condos. We have learned never to walk in the water in this bay without water shoes. But that’s what makes for great snorkeling.
Another great feature that we really liked about La Sirena was the fact that the condos are not up against the road! Instead they are between the beach and gardens, which made a huge difference in the comfort of those staying in the 2nd bedroom.
As to the condo itself, everything was as described by other reviewers. The beds were great; we particularly liked the varying pillow options. The kitchen is the nicest we have seen in any beach condo, even though we didn’t cook much. Though the ability to put things added to our comfort level.
We have stayed in several other nice condos in Akumal, but what sets this one apart is the consistency of good quality throughout the condo, the maintenance on everything, and all the thought put into the details, down to the pool floats: GIANT RUBBERIZED NOODLES!
