Lol Ka'naab are Akumal beachfront condos which are centrally located on the sandy section of popular Half Moon Bay. Take a short walk along the sand to several fantastic restaurants. Relax by the private pool or in a terrace hammock while listening to the sound of the tranquil lapping waves. This is by far one of Caribbean Fantasy's favorite properties and one of our client's most popular choices of accommodation in Akumal. Lol Ka'naab has a terrific location on Half Moon Bay, within walking distance of Yalku Lagoon, restaurants and shops. The caretakers are wonderful hosts, the units are clean, well kept and stunning. The tap water is potable and extra drinking water is provided. A small pool on the beachfront draws families to these condos.
The open floor plans and spacious rooms make a stay at Lol Ka'naab refreshing during any season. The views out over the beach and Half Moon Bay are breathtaking. The pool here is beachfront, and sits slightly higher than the main beach adding some privacy for guests. All these ocean view condos have bedroom a/c, cool marble floors and large bathrooms. The end units are slightly larger in the 2nd bedroom. There is bar seating in the kitchens, and additional space on the open beachfront terraces. The largest and most lavish of all is the top floor penthouse condo. All these condos can be rented as a 1 bedroom or a 2 bedroom condominium.
The tap water is safe to drink, as all units have filtered, softened, purified water. This is unique to Lol Ka'naab in Akumal. Since this water has a slightly salty taste, bottled water is also provided. A beach BBQ is available for the guests, as well as kayaks. A crib may be available, however, guest needs to provide the sheet. In addition to the ten 2BR units in the main building, there is an affordable and roomy studio casita for guests on a tight budget.
Lol Ka'naab has everything you are looking for: it is on the white sandy beach, there is a pool to cool off in, the marble filled condos all have amazing views, DSL, a/c and satellite TV, and the location is central to all the best things Akumal has to offer.

Add a review!
WOW!! We spent a week at LK #1 and had an absolutely wonderful time. We will definitely return. The condo itself was comfortable, well equipped, and perfectly located in the complex, especially if you want to take advantage of the pool, which we did every day. Half Moon Bay is rocky, so don't expect a sandy bottom (someone staying at the same time as us was not expecting the rocky conditions) and bring your water shoes. We snorkeled every day in the bay in front of the condo and further north in the bay and saw beautifully colored fish, sea turtles, a barracuda, and cuttlefish! During a walk along the beach, we were also lucky enough to come upon recently hatched baby sea turtles making their way to the water. We enjoyed many delicious meals in Akumal - La Beuna Vida was very close and the food was consistently good, Que Onda (near the lagoon) was fabulous and we highly recommend it, and Taverna Akumal had the best pizza. Overall, this was one of our best vacations and no one was ready to head home.

Great place for a relaxing vacation. Very clean property, can't get much closer to the beach. 15 minute leisurely walk to town. I really loved this place.
04/26/2017 Sandy Hopkins
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.
02/23/2017 Sharon Sloan
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. :-)
02/08/2017 Melissa Porter
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!

The condo was clean and well maintained. We had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The kitchen is a bit out-dated but that was not a problem for our family. The property managers were very nice and helpful.
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!
we stayed at lol ka'naab and we loved it had such a fun week loved waking up and being able to look out at the ocean. it was also very nice to have the pool so if you wanted to take a dip you could,also having the lawn chairs was an added bonus i loved akumal and cant wait to be returning and will more then likely be staying there again !
06/23/2006 Julie Crumbaugh, Lol Ka'naab
Just a quick thank you to your staff for being so helpful in booking my
families vacation this month. Akumal was as wonderful as I remembered and
Lol Ka'naab # 3 was the best spot on the beach!!!
We will definitely be going back and I will recommend you to all friends
We were really impressed with the little grocery store(Super Chomak) in Akumal. I wish we had known before shopping in Playa Del Carmen that we really could have gotten most of our groceries in Akumal.(This is included in the booklet you sent us, but we did not read it before we arrived.)
We read horror stories about driving in Mexico, but we did a lot in the
12 days we were on the Yucatan Pensulia, through large and tiny towns. We never
had any problems day or night. The laundry service available in Akumal was
great and fast and we thought reasonable.
There currently was a protest against
the people who were bringing boats into HMB and we were glad to support it as
we enjoyed the freedom of snorkeling without the worry of boats.
Akumal was a wonderful quiet get away from the hustle and bustle of the
larger cities along the coast. It is a great place to take a family. Though
not congested, it had everything from great places to eat to great places to
swim. I have recommened not only Akumal, but also Lol Ka'naab to our friends.
03/27/2014 from Carl Junction, Missouri
This was our first time renting a condo so we were a little unsure of what to expect. But we were very pleased with what we found. It was very clean and well kept with daily groundskeeper and maid service. The kitchen had everything we needed. We cooked and ate in alot to save on restaurants. The owners were onsite and very helpful if we needed anything. We loved being on the beach. The kids snorkeled and kayaked in the bay and had a great time. The pool seemed small in the pictures but we were the only ones using it and it was just the right size. The view is breathtaking and the hammock on the deck was the spot everyone wanted to relax. Wifi worked just fine too. We hope to go back in the future. We'd recommend this to our best friends!
07/06/2005 Dan Huitt, Nashville TN
We had a great time. Akumal is gorgeous; it hits a superb balance between too rustic and too American, within easy driving distance of Tuluum and Playa de Carmen. (Then again, the accommodations within walking distance of Akumal are enough to satisfy a lazy traveler.) The experience of eating and drinking in the shade of a palm tree a few yards from the water's edge was unforgettable, and snorkeling in nearby Ya-Kul with its avant-garde sculpture garden was a delight.
Mi Casa Del Mar and its staff exceeded our expectations; it was even more exotic than our usual haunts at Grayton Beach FL and Hilton Head SC. Many hours were spent in the pool staring off into the ocean and watching the lizards crawl. Our only discomfort was the heat; the AC unit in the main bedroom didn't seem to be working right. The porch hammock was popular too.
I would recommend it highly for those who love sun and sea and a touch of adventure. Bring a lot of friends -- Mi Casa Del Mar has a large outdoor party bar next to the pool!

We truly had the best vacation ever! We had such a wonderful time and loved the Lol Ka'naab condos so much that we're seriously starting to plan next year's vacation already! Half Moon Bay is such a great spot and enjoyed all that it had to offer. Thank you for providing such useful information for our trip, it came in handy.
11/08/2015 Plano, TX
This is our third time to stay with the nice people of Lol Ka'Naab and we will certainly do it again. This time just the two of us, other times we have rented several condos for the extended family.
Units 1-3 on the ground floor give you the feeling of an extended patio, private pool and ocean at your door. Units 4-9 on floors 2 and 3 have more private balconies over looking the bay.
Yes, there are cheaper places to stay but here you certainly get what you pay for. With the price of airline tickets and car rental, a little bit more for the room made the trip perfect.
We will be back in the future and enjoy the pool and the beach.
We were very pleased with everything. My wife
commented numerous times how happy she was that we found the unit of Lol Ka Naab.
The caretaker, Elio, and his staff were very thorough and helpful and we were
very impressed. We would return next year if we had enough money to do so. Appreciated the little blue book sent to us. It was very
helpful and accurate.
We have stayed in the penthouse at La Ka'naab on three different occasions and have loved it every time. The unit itself is beautiful and the view is amazing! We've tried some other places in the area but La Ka'naab is our favorite!
09/05/2014 San Francisco: Best family vacation in quite some time!!
We had a fantastic time in akumal. The penthouse condo at Lol Ka'naab was comfortable and beautiful. The beach was excellent. Elio and Darlene were like our parents - always watching out for us. And your recommendations for dinner and places to visit came in very handy. Muchas gracias!!

I just wanted to let you know that we had a FANTASTIC time in Akumal. The condo was comfortable and beautiful. Beach was excellent. Elio and Darlene were like our parents - always watching out for us. And your recommendations came in very handy.
Thank you very much,
My husband and I had a great time for our 17th Anniversary in March/April of 2012. Our rental was exactly as described and Jill, Lisa and Toni were so helpful and responsive to any requests we had. The penthouse is very private and has spectacular views. After one little hicup with the wifi password (missing a digit on the note on front of the TV), we were able to get connected. We rented bicycles for a week from Vista Del Mar next door - the staff there and at Lol Ka'naab are really wonderful. Most speak just a few words of English - so I was glad to know a bit of Spanish - especially when I couldn't find the wifi password, and one night the AC in a bedroom stopped working. They got it fixed the next day. We enjoyed just riding our bikes and exploring the area, we packed our snorkel gear and went to Yal Ku and Akumal Bay a few times each. It was fairly busy with Semana Santa before Easter. We enjoyed walking to both La Buena Vida and La Lunita via the beach for dinner. We hopped a Collective to Playa Del Carmen for one day and decided we were much happier just staying in Akumal the rest of the time. My husband brought a collapsable fishing pole and spent much of his time fishing in Half Moon Bay (making sure not to interfere with swimmers or snorklers) - some other anglers were soon out there with him! He caught and released a few bonefish and kept one large bar jack - very good eating! The condo was well stocked with the necessary pans/plates etc. The beds were fairly comfortable. The balcony was huge and very private - we practically spent all of our time out there when in the unit. I had reserved a massage with the same lady at Vista Del Mar that we rented bicycles from and Pablo came to our room and I had my massage on the privacy of our balcony listening to the waves. One note of caution for some folks - there is no elevator - and this is the 4th floor. 60 steps from street to your front door can be a lot for some folks. I was glad to see a male masseaus was the one carrying that massage table up there! We looked at other condos along the bay and believed we made the best choice with Lol Ka'Naab and I suggest you do too! We will likely be back next year!
04/18/2011 4 Spring Breakers loving it!
We returned on April 3 from an incredible time in Akumal. We stayed in the penthouse at Lol Ka'naab,
which was perfect for our family of four. The views of both the ocean (from the balcony) and the jungle (from the front of the unit) were gorgeous.
The unit was clean, very nicely furnished and extremely well located (beachfront in the middle of Half Moon Bay). This was our second time to Akumal and we'd love to return again.
We've been to beaches in Mazatlan, Acapulco, Puerto Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Costa Rica, the Gulf Coast of Florida, Hawaii, Bali and Thailand. Akumal ranks up at the top next to Bali. In addition to great weather, AMAZING snorkeling in the lagoon, white sand and warm Caribbean water, what we really like is the variety of activities in the area in addition to the beach. We've been to Tulum, Dos Ojos (which I would highly recommend---it's an incredible place!), Hidden Worlds (also tons of fun), Explore (a little bit commercialized but nevertheless, spending a day walking through these amazing caves was really cool) and several of the area beaches. Akumal is a great town. It's developed enough that it has several good restaurants and we felt 100% safe at all times, yet it has maintained a charm that you cannot find at most places along the Mayan Riviera. Most people park themselves at an all inclusive resort and don't realize how much more there is to this area of the world.
Lastly, booking through Caribbean Fantasy was a complete joy. Their service was flawless. Even after we returned home and realized we'd left behind my daughter's jacket, they spent a great deal of time helping us arrange to get it back to the US without spending a ton of $$$. I can't really say enough good things about Akumal and about Caribbean Fantasy.
Our Akumal trip was the vacation of a lifetime! The Lol Ka'naab Penthouse is a gorgeous condominium! It more than met our expectations!
It is centrally located to many activities in the Yucatan, as well as a great little tourist community. We felt very safe there and thoroughly enjoyed everything we did, from the Mayan ruins, to the beaches, to cave exploring in the jungle. We would go back in a heartbeat?just a matter of planning it again!
I was so very glad to have found your website with condo rentals in Akumal. It was extremely helpful in locating just the
right place for us, and in talking with you on the phone, it just reassured
me that I had found the best place for my family.
