La Bahia 5 (Starfish) is HGTV famous! This condo was featured in Oct 2017 on HGTV's Mexico Life, entitled An Office with an Ocean View. Watch for future showings!

Estrella de Mar La Bahia #5 is an incredible value priced 2 bedroom 2 bathroom condo in the popular La Bahia condominium in Akumal.  Situated on the 3rd floor, the views are spectacular and the trade winds coming off the ocean will cool and refresh you.  Unique to La Bahia, both bedrooms have a dramatic view of the Caribbean; to the east is famous Half Moon Bay and its breathtaking sunrises,  and to the west is a deep lush green jungle with beautiful warm glowing sunsets. 

Decorated with the deep vibrant colors of a Mexican fiesta, La Bahia #5 provides a wonderful home away from home.  The kitchen offers plenty of amenities; oven, range, large refrigerator, barware, flatware, cooking utensils and more. The kitchen has also been recently upgraded with a window, granite countertops and new stainless steel appliances.  La Bahia #5 is perfect for entertaining new found friends or having a Mayan meal prepared by a local chef.

 

The master bedroom is equipped with a king bed and wide louvered doors which can be closed for privacy or opened to create a bright and airy feeling with ocean views and a wonderful breeze.  The second bedroom has 2 twin beds which can also be moved together to create a king instead.  This is unique to La Bahia #5 as most condos have stationary beds. Both bedrooms have A/C and their own private bathroom with a shower.  While this condo sleeps 4 in beds using the two bedrooms, the 2nd bedroom has its own entrance and can be locked creating the option of a large full one bedroom condo rental for clients traveling as a party of 1 or 2.

 

The balcony is equipped with patio furniture and a hammock for relaxation while enjoying coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening.  The views of the beach, ocean and stars at night from this condo are spectacular. You can watch pelicans dive for breakfast or watch turtles surface in the evening to lay their eggs when in season.  In the mornings you will see a circle of rocks indicating a recently laid nest of turtle eggs.  The condo also provides some random snorkeling gear for water enthusiasts. Golf carts are available to rent for guests of the condo.

 

La Bahia is a beautiful condominium complex, perfectly located in the center of the nicest part of the sand beach on the famous Half Moon Bay in Akumal, Mexico. It’s one of ours, and our guests’ favorites due to the location, the fabulous owners and the excellent on-site management. You will love your stay at La Bahia #5 and will want to return many times over.

Everything you're looking for! This review is more than long over due! We broke up our trip between Tulum and Akumal. For the second half of our trip, this certianly didn't disappoint! If you've gotten a chance to watch Mexico Life, and saw this property, you know what you're getting. You truly can't top this balcony view! We're a family of 4, 2 adults, 2 kids (10 & 13 at the time). Our girls loved snorkeling in Half Moon Bay! They saw everything but turtles. The bay extends hundreds of yards from the shoreline and is very shallow in most spots. My worry before heading down was the current. With the barrier reef, it wasn't anything to worry about. We had a chance to see tangs, wrasses, cow fish, octopi, shrimp, just steps from your place! We didn't see turtles in HMB, but you can head over to Akumal Bay and get a guide. It was wonderful. The staff on site were friendly, and answered all my questions! They worked tirelessly to clear out the saragassum that was headed our way. The night life isn't crazy, but with 2 kids, that wasn't what we were looking for. I would recommend this place to anyone! You're not too far from the Tulum Ruins, or a number of cenotes along the highway. I would recommend the fish tacos at La Buena Vida! Tell 'em, Nick sent ya! That doesn't mean anything to them, but a WHOLE lot to me. :) The monkey Sanctuary was a wonderful experience and it's just a few miles from your place. Ya Kul, is within walking distance from your place. A bottle of wine is the perfect end of your evening on this balcony with the moon over the bay and the warm breeze hitting your face. I hope you get a chance to enjoy this place as much as my family and I did! I'm trying to talk my wife into coming back here. We'll see... Anyone considering this place w/ poor knees, you'll be climbing 3 flights of stairs as they don't have an elevator. It's not for everyone, for perfect for most. Cheers!

Nice condo with an awesome view of the ocean from the balcony. We sat out there for hours on end. Great location in Akumal close to lots of restaurants & small shops. We truly enjoyed our stay. There are no stairs & work being done on other units but overall a great place to stay, wed definitely return.

The view from this balcony cant be beat! Highly recommend this place for anyone seeking a quiet and relaxing get away. We felt like we had all of Half Moon Bay to ourselves for the week and a half we were there and even saw a sea turtle come to shore to nest! There is a wonderful beach front restaurant La Buena Vida in walking distance. Akumal is also well situated if you have a rental car. We were easily able to visit nearby Cenotes (Sac-Actun is life changing!), Tulum Ruins, and Chichn Itz during our stay. May not be the best place for people who love to swim as it is very rocky and the seaweed was very thick. Some of the locals mentioned that the seaweed is a seasonal thing.

We stayed at La Bahia Condo 5 for two weeks in April,2018. The condo was amazing it was on third floor fantastic view of Half Moon Bay. The condo has two bedrooms and two baths with great open concept kitchen/island and Livingston area. Has flat screen tv with Netflix. The staff is excellent and cleaning ladies are wonderful. Very quiet area bring water shoes and snorkel. Wonderful peaceful vacation already dreaming of next year.

We went on a quiet week. Being on the sand was a dream. The only complaint I had that was out of managements control was the seaweed. It was up and down the coast this season and workers tried and tried to clear it away but had no success. It made the beach in front a place we didnt want to hang out. Just a question to ask. The place itself was really clean. We asked the desk to connect us with a cook who made a meal for us one night. That was really fun. We discovered the ice cream shop in town at the end of the stay. Search it out early!!!

This unit is situated in the center of Half Moon Bay, making it a nice location for accessing both the "town", Yal-ku lagoon, and restaurants along Half Moon. I would highly recommend renting a golf cart to get around, or at the very least, rent bicycles. It is a bit of a walk to town and Akumal Bay, especially if it's hot outside. The unit itself was very nice, great view ! The only complaint we all had was that the beds could be a little more comfy, they were a little "firm" for our taste. Highly recommend Turtle Bay Bakery and Lucy's ice cream (inside the bakery). The staff at Caribbean Fantasy was great, couldn't have been nicer. And also a shout out to the owners of Las Bahia 5. We had an issue that had to do with "Mother Nature", not anything to do with the unit, and they bent over backwards trying to help us out. We did not have the opportunity to snorkel in Half Moon or Yal-ku (we weren't there long enough), but we did snorkel at Akumal Bay. I would recommend using a guide from the Akumal Dive Shop. You will have a far better hassle free experience. We didn't use a guide, and we were shooshed out of "zones" where I guess we weren't supposed to be several times. Annoying. We finally figured out where we could snorkel without a guide (just South of Akumal Bay hotel) and we DID see 2 large sea turtles. We had our own gear, so this was free. But folks who used the guides reported seeing a lot of wildlife and no hassles. I would recommend this unit, as long as you have transportation, or like I said, at least rent something to get around locally. You can catch a taxi to other locations up by the "arch". Enjoy!

The room and stay was very pleasant. The people who work at La Bahia have always bent over backwards to see that our needs were taken care of. Caribbean Fantasy is easy to work with. We went as a group and rented another house to go along with the condo. There were some issues between the house owner and renters but Caribbean Fantasy was able to act as the middle man and take care of the issue. We will use Caribbean Fantasy again.

My family and I stayed in this unit for 7 nights for our 5 year wedding anniversary trip. From the beautiful views of the atlantic, to the breezes coming in from the open layout our stay was a retreat. The staff is amazing, the security guard will wake you up to watch turtle nesting/hatching and the property is very well taken care of. I will definitely stay here again the next time I come down.

The condo fit our needs perfectly for our stay. Roomy, comfortable and nicely appointed. Love the location and the staff were great. Snorkeling is great right outside the door. Three flights of stairs helped keep us in shape with all the eating and adult beverages we consumed. :-) Would return in a heartbeat - and will!

Our family of 5 really enjoyed our stay at La Bahai 5. The location was excellent with beachfront on half moon bay . The bay was outstanding for snorkeling with an array of healthy coral, schools of brightly colored fish , turtles , rays and more. We were a short walk away from a variety of good restaurants . The whole area was well kept and we felt very safe walking around even late in the evening . The staff were very pleasant and responsive to our needs . The accommodations were just right. I would recommend this facility for anyone who wants a trouble free vacation

We have just finished staying in this condo. It was fantastic. Two couples and there was lots of space for us. The view from the deck was beautiful. We even got to watch the rising of the super moon. From the master suite, there's an unobstructed view of the night sky and ocean. The condo was meticulously clean and well stocked. Everything you need for fun in the sun. In our opinion, this is the best location in half moon bay. We have stayed at the end in Blue Waters and although it was good, it doesn't match this beach and location. The entire booking process was friendly and easy. The staff here are wonderful. Thank you.

Julie M Hastings, Minnesota Gorgeous views, peaceful location For a stay in Mar 2016 The 3rd floor condo was wonderful! Beautiful views, quiet beach, good snorkeling, centrally located. Office and cleaning staff were excellent. Master bedroom opened onto main living space but can also be private by folding doors - made the condo seem more open and expansive. We walked Half Moon Bay many times and my daughters walked down the beach to the restaurant every evening. We rented a car and easily drove into Playa del Carmen a few times and down to Tulum. Very close to several Cenotes. I would definitely stay here again.

This was my second stay at La Bahia and as my last 12 day stay the service from the staff is excellent. The grounds and rooms are spotless. The views from the rooms are spectacular. The sunrises every morning over the ocean are indescribable. This is the place i call my second home and will continue to stay at La Bahia

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.

Beautiful spot on the bay, close enough to walk to restaurants and shops. 4 of 5 stars Reviewed for a stay in January 2014 I have been to the Ackumal area several times for day trips, but this was our first time staying there. It was a really nice spot for a family vacation. Swimming was great; snorkeling medium unless you went farther out to the reef. Small turtles near the shore daily. That being said great snorkeling nearby at Yah Kul and in area cenotes. Was a bit windy (seasonal)so if heading back to this beach area I would try to get a ground floor room. (Easier access and less wind exposure) The Akumal area has fun shops and restaurants and at certain times of the year the big turtles are in the main bay. 5 of 5 stars Ease of booking 5 of 5 stars Directions to the property 5 of 5 stars Key pickup/access to the property 5 of 5 stars Overall condition 5 of 5 stars Quality of bedding/mattresses 5 of 5 stars Kitchen/utensils quality 5 of 5 stars Cleanliness of bathroom 5 of 5 stars Quality of facilities/amenities 5 of 5 stars Service Liked best: Proximity to beach, shops and restaurants.

Serene scenic spot in Akumal 5 of 5 stars 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.

I just wanted to let you know that my wife and I had a great time in Akumal. It's so nice to get away from all the touristy hubub in Cancun and Playa. We really enjoyed the condo at La Bahia, though I did want to tell you we had no hot water the whole week during prime times. We heard a few other guests complain to the staff and they didn't seem to be getting any action, so we just let it go, and started taking our showers in the afternoon. Other than that, it was a great experience and we hope to return.

10/23/2010 La Bahia Review by Mary
How can you beat waking up to the sound of soothing waves while in the company of the rising sun? Add a cup of joe in your hand, soft powder sand beneath your feet & warm water brushing each step you take. Coffee will never be the same again!! I just love that La Bahia is right in the middle of the bay. The main house is simply beautiful, very cozy & well kept. The rooms & bathrooms are spacious & immaculate. I had my own TV/DVD, microwave, toaster, mini fridge & coffee maker. Although who needs a TV with paradise outside? I felt like I was kayaking and snorkeling in my own private beach. There is also an amazing restaurant, La Lunita, on the bay. You can drive there in less than five minutes or opt for the scenic route via your feet & sand through their beachfront entrance. Tulum and Akumal are only a few minutes away. I recommend renting a vespa to see the ruins. FUN!! The staff was exceptional. They were very welcoming & accomodating. They made my stay that much more special and my leaving that much harder. No doubt the most relaxing vacation I've ever had. Now that I know all this exists in one place, I will be back every year. Already began assembling a group for 2011. Looking forward to returning.
