La Bahia, one of our favorites, is a beautiful condominium, perfectly located in the center of the nicest part of the sand beach on the famous Half Moon Bay.
Unit 4, a two bedroom on the second floor, offers the ambiance of Chapultepec, providing elegance and serenity in an eclectic decor displaying the historical and cultural differences of Mexico. On the second floor, Unit 4 is slightly larger than the upper units and offers breathtaking views of the beach, Half Moon Bay and the Caribbean Sea from the 3 huge windowed walls in the living room, while providing additional security of an upper level. The newly installed A/C provides a choice to satisfy temperature needs.
Both bedrooms offer the sights and sounds of the ocean and jungle. The master bedroom has warm earth-tone colors and the ambiance of Conquistador Spanish Mexico. This bedroom has luxurious king size bedding with high thread-count sheets, a European tapestry, filigree mirror and closet safe. The second bedroom is decorated in a deep rich colorful Mexican style, with a new queen bed and built-ins. Both baths are en-suite, with new hand painted sinks, showers and amenities such as hair dryers.
The living room, with its breath-taking 270 degree vista, is decorated in the Caribbean Yucatan style, with tropical print fabrics, (replica) Maya artifacts, a radio-CD player and a flat screen TV along with a selection of DVD's for your viewing pleasure. there is a safe. The kitchen, with its hand-created tile, is fully stocked with all amenities.
Swing in the terrace hammock or play cards out under the stars on the new patio set. Owners have new mattresses in both bedrooms. There is a/c in the bedrooms and also in the dining/living room area, giving it the feel of central air - although many guest find the trade winds off the bay so refreshing they prefer to forego the a/c and leave the windows open to hear the lapping waves of the sea outside as it hits the beach.
La Bahia 4 provides a romantic and tranquil sojourn from our normal life and the memories created here will provide enchanting memories that will endure until your next visit! 4 guests max.

La Bahia 4
Great condo and location
La Bahia 4 was very well-stocked including tons of drinking water and beach/sun/snorkel stuff. Really great wifi and even satellite TV. The beach was very well-maintained. Several guys worked tirelessly removing endless sargassum that washed up. Other condo buildings we passed were not maintained and became quite stinky. Easy walk down the beach to Buena Vida restaurant and we went there for many meals, all which were good.
Weve been to Akumal 7 years ago and were excited to return. La Bahia was amazing. Oceanfront, great breeze off the ocean, amazing view and the staff was terrific, especially our housekeeper. The unit was furnished beautifully and had everything we needed. Cant wait to return and will definitely stay here again.
The staff of Carribean Fantasis have provided prompt and very good support during the week, both in the preliminary information as well as in the supervision. Our inquiries were dealt with promptly and immediately delivered to a solution. Akumal is a rather small place, there are really great apartments between Akumal Bay and Halfmoon Bay. We were in the first part of our stay in Mi Casa del Mar which we liked very much. From there you have to go about 10 minutes to Halfmoon Bay or AkumalBay to get to the beach. The infinity pool is really nice. The second part of our trip we spent in LaBahia 4 directly in the Halfmoonbay. Also this variant is an excellent opportunity to enjoy directly at the sandy beach of Halfmoon Bay beautiful days! Bath shoes are necessary, since in the shallow area of ??the water are pointed stones. We will come back!"
Simply the BEST!
I'm a single Dad who has been vacationing with my two girls in Cancun and Riviera Maya for the past 20 years on a yearly basis. After staying at La Bahia in Half Moon Bay in Akumal, we are only coming here. Forget room service or waiters when you can simply walk 20 ft to your condo and get a bloody mary! This is not for those looking for the club scene and discos and fancy restaurants or shopping centers. This is a place for those who are looking for peace and natural beauty. Right in front of the condo we snorkeled and saw hundreds of fish in the reefs, at Yalku Bay (you have to pay $250 pesos like 18 bucks for the permit) and then with or without a vest and forget the tours, just dip in and snorkel away! We saw an octopus and a sting ray!! this with a myriad of tropical fish! Go in the afternoon like 3 pm to avoid people. Alternatively, at Akumal or Turtle Bay, go earlym like 630 or 7 am and do same. We stayed at unit #4 and it is a most Beautifully appointed condo with everything you can think of right at the most gorgeous bay, very relaxing! All you need is to buy groceries to cook at home or go to the restaurants on the bay. You can also take a number of tours to ruins and other parks around the area or you can just sit and read without the boom-boom hotel music or hundreds of people around. Instead, rent a bike from the front desk and explore on your own! My girls and I loved the peace and quiet as well as the vibe and energy of peace and coolness of the place and the people. We simply love this place! We shall be coming back for sure!
The condo has a very good layout with the living room up front transitioning to kitchen/dining in the middle with the bedrooms in the back. It is a good layout that maximizes space. The condo is wonderfully decorated. The view of the bay is fantastic. The condo is also well stocked with items that you will find helpful . . . check in before shopping. The staff on site is very pleasant and responsive. We thought we lost an item in the condo. They checked for us and even allowed us to check for ourselves a couple of days later since no one was in the unit. While the condo is in front of a sandy area of the bay, the beach is very rocky and you will want to have water shoes. Snorkeling was a miss for us on this trip as the water was too rough. Of course, the day that we dropped by to check for the lost item, the water was calm and we saw lots of people snorkeling. Hopefully your luck will be better than ours! Overall, the condo is an excellent choice if you want to stay on Half Moon Bay.
I would like to leave a gold star review. Everything was as described and contact with management very easy and convenient, although we had no real issues only naive questions that a tourist would have. Akumal and the condo were laid back and relaxing and the snorkeling just out the front door was beautiful, with turtle, sting ray, and numerous fish species. The reef was amazingly healthy!!!

Just arrived here from La Bahia #4. It's beautiful. Decorated so tastefully. You can tell the owners "love" and have pride in their place. They also left us ( 2 couples each celebrating 25th anniversaries) each a bottle of wine and lively cards. So very thoughtful. The view from this very well stocked condo (from spices to hammocks, books, games, movies, you name it) is also beautiful. One floor above ground and surrounded by blue water, white sand and palm trees. A definite Carribean Fantasy.
Thank to All the wonderful staff. You've made everything about this trip easy and wonderful. We will definitely be back and will recommend to everyone. Mucho gracias!

My wife and I stayed here in early May of 2016 and are we glad we did. We have stayed at many All-Inclusive places all over Mexico...something we will never do again.
La Bahia # 4 is our new destination from now on. Our stay offered a complete "get away" without the stress of following any pace but our own! Spectacular views from this unit that has everything you could possibly need. We would have coffee every morning overlooking the Caribbean that is virtually steps from the door. The ocean breezes, snorkeling everyday in the most beautiful water you will ever see. Easy access to great restaurants to frequent when we liked...Fully equipment kitchen made it easy for us to make our own meals and our own happy hours! Everything was a no hassle event. We will be going back very soon.
By the way...do yourself a favor and rent the golf cart. It's great for getting around town and worth the small cost. We love this place and we love Akumal.

We spent a wonderful time with friends and family at La Bahia. Woke up hearing the waves in the morning, had coffee and pastries on the balcony, read books on the sandy beach under palm shades, snorkelled to see corals and fish, enjoyed the local cuisine at a number of nearby places... At days we wanted to do a little more we found plenty of activities within half an hour drive: markets, Tulum ruins, Dos Ojos Cenotas,... The spacious apartment offered all amenities needed (kitchen equipment, air-conditioning,...), and was cleaned daily by friendly stuff.
Serene scenic spot in Akumal

Reviewed yesterday for a stay in November 2014
The pictures of this little gem don't do it justice. Situated on a small bay this property is perfect for a romantic get away or even a family. If you get groceries on the way from the airport, you won't need a car here. There are a couple of nice restaurants within easy walking distance also. Would not recommend the top units for those with walking issues-- many stairs.
We plan to return!!

Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Yes.
The property was "as advertised". I recommend the location. The property was a good value for the price paid. The property provided wifi/internet access. My security deposit was returned on time.
We stayed in La Bahia #4 in December 2014. We had an awesome time! The location is great. The view of the beach from the living area is amazing. We will definitely return.
We truly hated to leave La Bahia! The staff was great, the unit was impeccable, dýcor, amenities and more. We loved how fast the wifi worked. The views were the best. It was quiet, a beautiful stretch of beach, plenty of shade.Morning coffee and evening cocktails overlooking Half Moon Bay,priceless! We will be back. Thanks Caribbean Fantasy , Lisa and Jill for sending us here! Great call! Cassie
