Lol Ka'naab Condo 3
As I sit here listening to Christmas carols, thinking back over the past year, one of the highlights was our stay at Lol Ka,naab this summer. We loved the complex. I have nothing but good to say about the staff, unit, owner, pool and more. Thanks Caribbean Fantasy for recommending Lol Ka'naab!
The property is well maintained and equipped and the view is wonderful. My only complaint is that the design of the building made sound travel easily between units and there was no privacy on the patio due to the openings between each one. The snorkeling is great and its lovely walking the beach to nearby restaurants. Overall a great value and location. Thank you for your kind review! We agree, the location and view from Lol Ka'naab #3 is wonderful and we are happy to hear you enjoyed the snorkeling! Some clients love the companionship of the open terraces. However, on your next stay we will show you lots of other great condo choices on Half Moon Bay in Akumal which have private terraces and soundproofing. We look forward to working with you again soon!
This stay was a short getaway for 3 old friends and the condo fit our needs very well and was in a perfect location for what we wanted to do during our stay. It was my 6th visit to Akumal and the first for my friends who fell in love with the area too. Our reservation process was so incredibly easy and the folks were so friendly. Do not miss the best bar La Buena Vida or any of the great snorkeling available right outside your door. One would be loco not to visit Akumal. :-)
Beyond perfect. We have vacationed for the last 8 years with another couple and each year we pick a different location. We didn't want to leave, it felt like home. And was so close to everything. The food in Town (short 10 minute walk) was the best we have ever had. I could continue but just experience it yourself. You'll fall in love.
Loved the location. Very quiet, but also easy walk (or drive) to town/Akumal Beach/Ya Kul Lagoon. Also great to be 3 minute walk to La Buena Vida. Condo and views were beautiful.
Nice condo. Really enjoyed the pool and the beach.
The property was very clean and the Ello and his staff were very nice and helpful. If you want a place to go and relax and it be very quiet this is the place for you. We were the only guest at the condo. We had the place to ourselves. Beautiful!
All of us enjoyed this condo. It was perfectly located, steps from the beach and walking distance to everything Akumal has to offer. It was comfortable, had everything we needed to relax, play and cook in. Turtles were coming up to lay their eggs almost nightly, the water was warm and snorkeling in the ocean and in the lagoon were highlights. Many good restaurants close by as well.
Easy to find and we were warmly greeted by Elio the caretaker who showed us our suite. We had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. Condo is in a beautiful location and centrally located to everything that we did. Very safe and comfortable surroundings. Elio checked on us daily to make sure everything was ok. Elio really made us feel at home! We will definitely be back again and will highly recommend
This condo was the perfect location for my family. Although we didn't have a car, we were able to walk everywhere (to the town of Akumal, Yal Ku Lagoon, and everywhere in between) as the condo is located in the middle of Half Moon Bay. Walking was a great way to see Akumal and explore the different areas. Elio, the manager,was also very friendly and helpful. The condo itself was comfortable and had the necessary conveniences. Wifi worked best on the patio. Most of our time was spent out back on the patio, by the water, and exploring the area. Watching the sunrise steps from the condo was memorable. We would definitely return to this relaxing and beautiful area.
Our family of four just spent 8 days at this great condo in Akumal half moon bay. Location of the condo is right in the middle of the bay with easy walk to couple of restaurants and snorkeling. The condo itself is clean (cleaning lady came every day exempt Sunday). Most importantly for someone with bad back the beds are really comfy with good quality mattresses. I hope to go back again.
We loved our stay! Everything was great. On arrival, we were met by the manager who was there on site throughout our stay. We loved the location of the condo. Half Moon Bay was always peaceful, despite the fact that we stayed during spring break (Akumal Bay was another story!). Since the condo is situated on the ground floor, it was wonderfully convenient for the kids when using the pool or playing on the beach. Convenient for the adults, too, for easy refills! The condo had ample space for the four of us, the bedrooms were quite large and the A/C worked like a champ. The WiFi signal was weak in the condo, which for us was a blessing, as it forced everyone to unplug. We would absolutely stay here again and would definitely recommend it to friends.
This is exactly what me and my girlfriend (and our 2 friends) were looking for. Akumal is a beautiful, peaceful area (though not without some excellent restaurants/bars, all within walking distance of this condo). Right on the beach, an incredible pool...we couldn't ask for more. The place is a great size, was clean, helpful staff, good communication with owner...nothing but great things to say about this experience!
This first story on the beach condo in a quiet slice of paradise was an ideal place for us to take my active 75 year old parents! From here it was easy day trips to Coba, Tulum, and Paamul. There are three great restaurants on the beach within the area. The facility itself was exactly as advertised. We will return!
My fiancee, myself, and her adult son rented Bruce's condo for a week in January of 2015. Akumal is a delightful, small resort town, with an uncrowded, laid-back feel. We felt very safe and really enjoyed a couple of the restaurants and both the condo's beach and the nearby main hotel beach area. The condo is clean and comfortable, sturdy underneath with built-ins for the master bed itself and the couch-benches in the main living area, but very nice. The living area opens onto a small porch with a hammock and then the pool area with the beach then right ahead. Sunrise in the living area is gorgeous, and the master bedroom has a window-like set of dividers which can be opened to give the master suite a water/sunrise view. Elio and his wife are pleasant and knowledgeable. Our dollar stretched well in this area. We traveled south to Tulum and north twice to Playa del Carmen in our rental car, and basically had a blast. Excellent fun snorkeling, including sea turtles and other marine life. So, remembering all the wonderful, positive things we just said, our only minus really was that this is not a place where there is white sand going down into the water allows that easy, barefoot swim. A combination of rock and sea grass means that one needs water shoes. Bruce was very clear about this -- not a surprise. It did make us wish there was, though, just a sandy entry. This is nonetheless, then, a great property, what seemed to us a great value, and well cared for with good attention both from the owner and from the property manager. You can rent with confidence. I suppose I should mention that one would probably for sure want a car at this property... there are a couple shops and a restaurant or two in walking distance, but a car made it a great base of operations. We did not have small children with us but there were a few in the unit upstairs who had a great time, and it may be helpful to note that they weren't noisy to us -- thick walls.

We just returned home after a two and a half week stay in condo #3. This is the 8th year we have stayed at Lol Ka'naab. We find this location ideal for a very relaxing get away from our hectic lives. Every year we meet up with a group of friends that we have met while staying here, people from all over the U.S. and Canada. Sunrises are beautiful; the white sand beach is ideal for walking; the mile walk into town is enjoyable (and safe); the condo is fully equipped with everything we need. We do not rent a car but do grab a taxi when we take a short trip into Tulum. We do walk into town every day and on Wednesdays and Saturdays, we bring back fresh produce from the farmers market. We love that we have a charcoal grill onsite and are able to eat healthy even while on vacation. Elio and Darlene are fantastic hosts, very knowledgeable and always around whenever we needed anything. We highly recommend this condo and look forward to our return next February.
We just returned from 17 days in the Akumal area, 12 of which we stayed in #3 condo on the ground floor. The ground floor location is the best you could hope for, especially with young children (5 and 7). Open the door and your are at the pool just steps beyond your covered patio, complete with hammock and table/chairs. (Should be noted that only units 1-3 have direct pool/beach access. All other units have to go down the stairs in the front of the unit and then walk around the side) The property sits up about 5 feet above the beach on a sea wall that is filled with sand, palapas, and loungers just beyond the pool, and beyond that you walk down the 3 steps and you are on the beach! The view is breath taking, and the location is literally in the middle of the bay which allows for great privacy, views, and a short walk on the beach to la Buena Vida Restaurant or for items at the local corner store. The unit itself is very nicely upgraded with all travertine flooring, counters, and showers. Both showers are just awesome, and the master is very unique (in a good way) with arches and high window walls. The main bedroom has a collapsible wooden panel (Very common in the area) that opens to the living room which provides an excellent ocean view from this area accordingly. The kitchen has granite counters, an island counter with a breakfast bar, and is well equipped. AC in both bedrooms and ceiling fans throughout make it the perfect temp, but you rarely need AC this time of year in Akumal as the trades blow almost all the time. We have been traveling to Akumal for about 9 years now and we have stayed in this area (Half Moon Bay) and a couple bays up in Aventuras Akumal which have private homes, and I have finally found where I will be continually coming back to. Unit #3 is just perfect for a family (or anyone really) and we can't wait to come back next year!

My wife and I are real beach lovers, we spend all winter at Florida beaches an all summer at the beaches in Maryland and Delaware. We've been to Cancun 3 times, but this year we decided to go a little farther south. The town of Akumal on Half Moon bay was perfect. It's much quieter and more private than Cancun, it feels like a European beach town. The condo was perfect. It has a ground level patio just a few feet from the pool, and the beach is right next to the pool. They have built in tiki huts for shade, and it even has WiFi on the beach. There is a fully equipped kitchen and 2 large bedrooms. Groceries, restaurants, and dive shops are only a mile away. We would definitely come back here again.
We fell in love with Akumal, this magical community through the white archway. We walked just about everywhere from this wonderful beachfront location: shopping, restaurants, to the dive shop, and more! We felt safe and as though we were locals who stumbled on a quiet, private community. The beachfront location is *ideal*; sit on the patio for sunsets over the ocean, take a dip in the little pool, or snorkel out in the ocean and turtle-watch! We really appreciated Bruce's hospitality before we arrived with the helpful info packet and prompt replies to our questions. Even while we were there, Bruce responded right away to emails. There was plenty of parking at the condo which made it easy to come and go with groceries, and the first-floor location (no stairs!) was a plus. Kitchen was easy to work in and well-stocked. Beds were comfortable and the two bathrooms were very clean and plenty big for our family. Our party ranged in age from 13 to 75 and we all found the condo, the view, the beach, and the pool convenient and comfortable. Tips: bring cash (some restaurants do not take credit cards or only accept a tip in cash). Wifi is best on the patio or at the patio/sliding door. We loved Turtle Bay Cafe for breakfast, lunch, latte, or dinner! And if you dive, Condor runs a great boat and knows where the sea horses are!
Your property is just phenomenal. We especially liked the location and the exceptional service you provided on site and by email. Of course, all the little extras, such as drinking water, fully equipped kitchen, cleanliness, made our stay fantastic. This condo is perfect for two couples or a couple with children. We used it as a base camp. Usually in the morning we went out whether to go snorkeling with the turtles in the nearby bay or in the lagoon, go scuba diving, visit the ruins and beaches of Tulum (25 min by car), explore a cenote etc etc. At the end of the afternoon, we enjoyed the terrace of the residence while the children had fun in the pool ... In short, a great place that I highly recommend to all. Thanks again,
We enjoyed our stay here and the location was very walkable to restaurants and beaches as well as Yalku lagoon. If you want to snorkel with turtles, this is a great spot to stay. Some minor communication gaps between the owner and the manager at the condo and so they were not expecting us, but it was remedied quickly. Pretty basic accommodations, but the pool and ocean front location were very nice and the beds were comfortable.
I have stayed here two times and both visits have been wonderful. It's the perfect place to relax after a morning dive. It's a very convenient location to diving, shopping, dining, and site seeing. It's also perfect if you don't want to go running around for your whole vacation. It's a comfortable place with all the necessities if you want to make your own food and eat in. One of the nicest things is that you can walk right out the door and be on the beach or take a dip in the pool. I highly recommend this place. I love it so much I'm going back again for my honeymoon! I couldn't think of a more romantic place to go.

Great family trip. The condo exceeded our expectations. Elio, the building manager, was so helpful. He took on turtle walks each night. We saw over 100 baby turtles hatch. It was awesome staying on a beach level condo. We could swim in the pool anytime. Most memorable swimming under the stars. The condo felt safe and secure.
