From this coveted ground floor spacious condo #2 at La Bahia, you can walk out the front door barefoot to the beach or relax and read under the palms or under our palapas!
La Bahia is a beautiful complex, perfectly located in the center of the nicest part of the sand beach on the famous Half Moon Bay. Soak up the sun from the elevated private beach courtyard and the shade of a palapa on the white sand beach. Find fabulous snorkeling in the Bay right outside our door and just up the road in the aquarium-like Yal Ku Lagoon!
This two-bedroom/two-bath unit of 1,125 square feet includes new appliances as well as new air conditioning in all rooms and ceiling fans, although tropical breezes often make these unnecessary. Once you stay here, you will understand why La Bahia is a favorite Akumal property for our guests!
La Bahia 2's open floor plan includes large windows on three sides of the living room for outstanding views of the beach and bay beyond. Guests love the live tropical plants and Mexican artifacts. The Caribbean Sea can be viewed from all rooms, which is an amenity not many condos offer. La Bahia 2 also has some great renovations, including granite in the kitchen and bathrooms.
The master bedroom in this condo offers a spacious new super comfortable Serta mattresse king-sized bed, and the guest room also has two new super comfortable Serta twin mattresses. Both bedrooms offer ocean and jungle views - this is something unique to La Bahia for secondary bedrooms. (This unit can be rented as a 1 or 2 bedroom condo most seasons.) Guests will have en-suite bathrooms, ample closet space and ceiling fans in case they prefer to open the windows to hear the lapping waves hit the shore outside the condo ...
Daily maid service is available, and beach towels are provided. Cell phone and wireless Internet service are available, so bring your cell and laptop, if you wish. There is also a Smart TV with Cable/Satellite and a DVD player. Visitors will find A/C in the bedrooms and also in the dining/living room area. The remodeled condo is filled with great things: the kitchen has striking granite countertops and new cabinets; new cutlery, toaster, microwave, and blender. There is also a coffee maker, gas stove, oven, pots and pans, and drinking water provided. Comfortable new bedding, updated furniture inside and on the patio. Always popular is the stronger internet router which has better bandwidth and is faster than other units nearby. The management can provide the following items for guests at an additional fee. Golf Cart= $40/day, Bikes = $ 7 USD per day or $ 35 USD per week, Rollaway bed = $ 10 per day, Baby Cribs = $ 10 per day, High chairs = $ 5 per day. Please request in advance when booking to ensure availability.
La Bahia 2 offers its guest the convenience of amenities within walking distance, yet a beach that is semi-secluded. Our guests rave about their stay here. Come find out why!
June storms brought some Sargasso to the beach in front, so travelers will get an extra deal on the rates right now in case there is still some lingering around. We also have a great list of Sargasso free activities, and just a short few meters to the north you will find the bay is Sargasso free and easy to enter - some of the best snorkeling here in decades due to the quarantine giving the sea a breather!

Very enjoyable stay at this unit which was as advertised on their site. The patio opens up directly onto the beach, and despite many nearby condos there it was fairly private. Would recommend this unit to others

The pictures do not do this place justice. You can watch the sunrise every morning while laying in bed. You are so close to the ocean the sounds of the waves crashing sooth you to sleep. The staff, the amenities, just everything was absolutely perfect. I would highly recommend.

Awesome location and experience
It was one of our best vacation stays. Excellent location. This section of half moon bay was perfect. I really liked the daily cleaning service as the condo would get sandy every day. It was great that the condo provided drinking water. I will surely come back again.

We had a wonderful time in Akumal. The apartment is very modern, clean and communication with Lisa was excellent. Many thanks, Lisa!

This unit was ground level with an incredible view. There was construction next door and the first two days we were awoken by the sound of jackhammers. Management spoke to the contractor so the 3rd day there was silence in the morning The cleaning staff and groundskeepers were extremely friendly and did a great job.

I would have to honestly say that my stay at La Bahia 2 was extremely nice, ground level with just steps to the water's edge and of course a million dollar view. The condo was clean and very accommodating, I would highly recommend this rental to anyone.

Great place right on the beach, can't go wrong!

Amazing place in a great location!
La Bahia 2 was a great spot to stay to explore Akumal. The front desk staff was incredibly helpful in arranging tours and transportation. (Thanks Adrian!). The condo itself was immaculate. We loved going to bed listening to the ocean and the view cant be beat.
We loved it here. Best part of our mexico vacation. We stayed at an all inclusive a few nights before coming here but hands down prefer this location and the condo right on the beach. Akumal area is great. Lots to do and see in walking and swimming distance. La buena vita is where we ate most meals. They have great food and drink. Nice to wake up and have coffee right on the beach. I could never tire of the view. And the sunrises were beautiful.
amazing view to wake up and go to sleep by. The people who help out there are so accessible, pleasant and always available. Loved having a kitchen and walking a block down to Buena Vida for lunch or dinner. We also loved the beach at Akumal bay and enjoyed making that a daily stroll. We will be back!
First off, we wish we were still there! 10 days in the glorious Mexican sun was not enough! We thoroughly enjoyed our time. We arrived almost a day late due to flight issues and even though we got to La Bahia in the middle of the night we still received a warm welcome from the security guard on duty. I felt very safe with all the security around, which is important for me because we have a two and a four year old. The condo was perfect for us; the kitchen was equipped with all the modern amenities you would desire, the TV was put to use on the one rainy afternoon we encountered, and the bedrooms were spacious, have room to unpack, and the beds are very comfortable. Being right on the beach really made our stay relaxing! We would put the kids to bed and still enjoy the evening outside and have our morning coffee on the patio and watch the kids play in the sand, 5 feet away. The daily cleaning staff were wonderful; dishes done, beds made, garbage taken out and our water was refilled regularly. The beach itself was nice. We enjoyed going for walks around the bay but be careful with all the rocks if you want to go for a swim, water shoes are a must. The area is great, the condo is wonderful and we definitely recommend this if you are looking for a quiet, low key get away!
Five nights in Paradise! What a wonderful vacation, but too short to do and see everything that this quaint area has to offer. The condo is perfectly situated right on the beach. We enjoyed the spectacular views including sunrises and sunsets. The condo is very attractive and has all the comforts of home. The newly redecorated kitchen is beautiful and very well equipped. The beds were comfortable and the rooms spacious. The maids were very attentive, and the office staff could not have been more helpful. We enjoyed snorkeling in the bay right outside the front door and even saw turtles swimming with us. There is so much to see and do there; we wish we had planned for a much longer stay!
We truly loved our stay in Akumal and at La Bahia. This was my third time to stay at La Bahia (each in a different condo) and by far #2 has the most recent renovations and updated look. As always, the staff was attentive and helpful and the condo well maintained. Akumal and the surrounding area are always a treat and did not disappoint during this trip either. If you have never been I highly recommend checking out Cenote Santa Cruz (just a short, but rough, ride outside of Akumal Pueblo) and touring the Sian Ka'an for some additional fun. Local restaurants in Akumal do not disappoint either and La Buena Vida is always a good time for a drink, food, or both. Thanks for sharing your piece of paradise!
The pictures show exactly what the condo and grounds look like. We were so happy to find a condo on the ground floor with two bedrooms that had A/C in both the common area and the bedrooms. Usually it is one or the other. Everything we needed was provided. If you want the housekeeper every day, you shall have it. We did not. A nice plus was the 5 gallon jug of water that was kept replenished as needed. Never had that before. Plenty of kitchen items although needed more glasses. Linen quality was great. We ate every breakfast on the patio as well as some dinners. Loved the closeness to the water. the condo was very clean. There were a ton of books as well as some on the area. Our only down thing was that the water pressure was very, very low, and you ran out of hot water if you were not quick. There were plenty of lounges on the beach as well as two palapas which was fine since it was not crowde when we were there. Most of the time we were there the water was too rough to enjoy snorkeling, and we along with most others went elsewhere. Either to Yal Ku or Akumal Bay. Of the two weeks, we only had 3 days that were not rough. Except on the weekends the staff worked very hard hauling off tons and tons of seaweed to keep the beach clean. Getting into the water was very rocky, and you were often the entertainment as you floundered getting in and out. LOL This was certainly one of the nicest condos we have rented in the Caribbean and Mexico, and I would feel comfortable suggesting it to anyone. I would also not hesitate to return. We have stayed at a number of condos, and it was so nice to see one that was not in need of renovations!
The property is well maintained. The location is perfect. It's directly on the beach and a short walk or golf cart ride away from restaurants. The staff at the condo are friendly and professional. And the A/C in the living room and both bedrooms is perfect. We'll be back!
The area is beautiful, with ocean views on one side and jungle on the other. The condo was comfortable and the a/c worked great. I was disappointed with the beach. We weren't able to swim there since it was so rocky and rough for our boys and instead went to the lagoon and the public beach up front (it was very crowded). All the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We saw a turtle laying her eggs and many other interesting animals. The restaurants there are very good- we loved Turtle Bay Cafe. Water pressure was low. A bigger TV would be nice.
The best part of this stay was the seclusion. Half Moon Bay was like an entirely different world than Akumal Bay. So much less crowded! The Condo was great and all the staff was very friendly and helpful! Would definitely recommend it!!
Our vacation was amazing!! Perfect location to watch the sea turtles come up to the beach to lay their eggs and then watch them hatch. Walking distance to oceanfront restaurant Very comfy,cozy and clean!!!!!
Condo was super clean, comfortable and steps away from the beach. Perfect for watching nesting turtles and the babies... pretty magical Restaurant and stores within walking distance. Excellent to relax and unwind!
Very well maintained and great service! The condo was perfect, the staff excellent. The only issue is we couldn't swim in the ocean. I think it would be nice to know that there are rocks all under the water, that you cannot see in the pics, and it's very uncomfortable to swim in front of the condo. That was our only disappointment.
Property was well tended to and in a great location. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Local dining was out of this world! I wanted to give a special thanks to Eduardo, our nighttime caretaker. He was kind and helpful and made us feel welcome and safe. People like him make La Bahia a place to return to. I hope he sees this review so he knows how his care and service are appreciated. Thanks, La Bahia, for the great time and great memories!
My mother was born in Mexico and visits every year. We choose Akumal because we wanted something a little more relaxing than Cancun, but still with things to do (last time we stayed in Tulum). The location is absolutely breathtaking and quiet! The hosts were lovely and VERY responsive. The property was clean, beautiful, and extremely comfortable. This place looks EXACTLY like the pictures. There's so much to do in this area! SEA TURTLES for one! Snorkeling, tours, a few shops, and awesome restaurants. Akumal is located near Tulum, about a 20 min drive. Akumal is much more affordable than Tulum, which we appreciated. Only drawback is, everything, and I mean EVERTYHING closes by 10PM or earlier. When my husband and I arrived at 9PM we were so sad that there were not any late night food options, thankfully there was a 24 hour convenience store. Besides a couple restaurants (La Buena Vida was our favorite) everything is about a 10-15 min walk away. We had a rental car so this was not a problem, nor did we mind walking in the evening. If you decide to stay in Akumal, WHICH YOU MUST DO, I advise you rent a car (condo provides complimentary parking), this way you can explore Akumal fully and enjoy local towns and attractions nearby. **The property will send you a discount voucher for local shops and restaurants. You must PRINT this voucher prior to using, because not all the restaurants and shops will accept it otherwise. ** Thank you so much for our lovely stay!!
We had a wonderful 3 night stay at this condo on the first floor. The patio overlooked the beach and ocean. It was beautifully decorated and well- maintained. The kitchen is stocked with all the utensils you need to cook if you wish. AC and hot water worked well. Snorkeling on Half Moon Bay is very, very good. And there are two really good restaurants on the beach nearby: LaLunita and La Buena Vida. The condo is located in LaBahia at the quieter end of Half Moon Bay.
My family and I had such an amazing time staying here. We saw two HUGE turtles come up to the beach at night near by the condo to lay their eggs. Note: please make sure to turn off all bright lights at night. The turtles are sensitive and won't come up to the beach if bright lights are on. Our stay was great! We will surely stay here again. Views were beautiful being so close to the beach and staff were very friendly and gave good recommendations for things to do and eat near by.
We had a great time and the apartment was very nice decorated and very complete.
