Wonderful, relaxing stay at Azul Cielo at La Sirena

My husband and I visited Akumal for the third time this November and stayed at La Sirena for the first time. The complex was very quiet, few other vacationers about and we had the pool and beach to ourselves most days. Nice! This condo is on the top floor and there are quite a few stairs before you get to the stairs that lead to the condo, but we were eating well in town and the exercise was mostly welcome! Because of the high floor, the views were incredible and the way the living space is set up there are views, through the glass doors from the kitchen, living room, dining area and bedroom. We found the condo to be very well equiped, plentiful kitchenware and a great blender. The fridge has plenty of ice trays in the freezer ad the fridge itself was new and roomy. Pots and pans in good repair and everything EVERYTHING very very clean. We cooked breakfast every day and some lunches but had dinners out at the local restaurants which we like a lot. Every staff member, from the maids to the night guard, was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed every day swimming, snorkeling in the bay (not fabulous but we saw some fish – corals are beat up and brownish in many spots but you see a couple of purple fans here and there) and also snorkeled all day at the lagoon down the road which had some huge parrot fish and schools of other pretty fish. The beds were very comfortable, the linens/towels of pretty good quality. The bathrooms area bit tight but as I said, very clean. Our biggest problem was showering and washing dishes, as the hot water was iffy and the water pressure low. We called for help and received it promptly and with apologies. The living room couches (throughout the condo I think) have a poured cement base with cushions – – and there were lots of attractive, clean cushions on them – – but we just could not get comfortable. The leather Mexican chairs through the condo were much better, nice back support, but again had little cushion.  Outdoors is paradise – -well kept gardens throughout the property, a good sized pool (4ft throughout), a shower to wash off the sand. We had a great time in this quiet little paradise. Indoors, everything that mattered to us was very nice. Thanks to Diana for sending lots of information before we arrived.
