El Nido de la Bahia #7 is a newly updated 2 bedroom, 1 bath on the 4th floor. La Bahia is a beautiful condominium, perfectly located in the center of the nicest part of the sand beach on the famous Half Moon Bay. Its views are so dramatic they will take your breath away. The new unique jungle side balcony is large and has an entrance from both bedrooms. It offers balconies on both the ocean and jungle sides.
The master offers built in wall cabinetry and windows on 3 sides. All rooms offer ceiling fans and A/C to aid the cool Caribbean breeze. The master in this condo has a queen bed and the 2nd bedroom has a double bed, with a shared bathroom dividing the two bedrooms. There is a radio, safes in each bedroom, a TV and cable. It is newly remodeled with new curtains on the front and side windows, new linens and bedding, electronic water cooler (hot/cold) and new couch cushions! New in 2018 are new kitchen counters, new sink, new cabinets, new stove, refrigerator, and table and chairs. There is a brand new TV with a DVD player and more. This unit hosts a smart TV with an active Netflix account as well as Internet access. There is also a wireless keyboard mouse to use with the Smart TV. Outside you will find brand new non-slip tile.
La Bahia offers its guest the convenience of amenities within walking distance, yet a beach that is semi-secluded. Our guests rave about their stays here. Unit 7 include daily maid service. Golf carts are available to rent for guests of this condo.
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!

La Bahia 7
The pictures adequately reflect condo, good layout, fabulous view of the bay and staff on site responsive and helpful. Only negative Is the air conditioning in the master bedroom is 4 ft from the floor and blows directly on your face and upper body. If you don't need A/C it's great. But it's extremely hot in the summer and was absolutely necessary! The other huge environmental problem is the dead seaweed on the beach that is plaguing all along the Mexican and Caribbean ocean coasts.
The ocean views and sounds can't be beaten! La Bahia is a lovely building with friendly staff and is located only a few steps from La Buena Vida and our now favorite, La Lunita. The Caribbean Fantasy staff were wonderful in getting us lots of useful information. We hope to be back at Akumal in the near future. One tip before booking your trip to the region in general, look into how much sargassum is expected in the area as this can affect how much time you can actually enjoy on the beaches. There are live cams that help while you are there.
Beautiful and quiet place.If you don't mind steps would recommend.
Great place to stay. Very accommodating. Amazing views
The view is one of the best Ive ever had. The green jungle in the morning and the beach in the evening with sunrise and sunset both amazing. It is right on the beach, just step outside. Everything was clean and worked perfectly. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Location is a bit away from the town and I was so glad for that. Very peaceful. Id love to stay again soon!
We really enjoyed our visit. The condo was nice, the views were awesome and staff on site were very friendly. It didnt bother us at all, we are used to climbing mountains but some people may not enjoy all the stairs up to the condo.

Great place! We stayed in the top floor apartment with views of the beach and jungle, which were beautiful. The apartment is very spacious, good sized kitchen with all the amenities. Communication was great! We had to check in last minute as our previous booking was cancelled and Lisa was SO helpful with directions, information, checking us in and anything else we needed to know. Our bed was very comfy and we did feel at home during our stay. The only issue we had, and it wasnt a big one, was that there were ants in the kitchen. So we made sure not to leave any food out and cleaned up straight after cooking. Overall great apartment, helpful staff and a nice stay!
Unsurpassed view, clean and well-equipped accommodations, internet and television by satellite works without problems. The beds were very hard I hope they can improve that, otherwise excellent!
We had a wonderful stay in La Bahia Condo No. 7. Well it's hard to take 4 suitcases up to the 4th floor, but we knew this before. The stunning view made up for it. The condo is furnished comfortable and all basics are there. Thanks to the owner Eric for our welcome present. The bathroom is very small, there are not enough hooks to hang and dry towels and clothes for 4 people.
Unfortunately the door and some windows are not tight, so as we had almost 2 days a storm, a lot of water came in the condo. The staff gave us the possibility to change our condo and for one stormy night, we move to another condo. The day after, the staff came several times to no. 7 to wipe the water from our floor. They did a good job, thanks! The only thing that didn't work for many days (also before the storm) was the wifi-connection. One day before we left, it's starts working again.
The beach in La Bahia was just perfect. In cause of nature there is more or less seeweed. Maybe they should think about more effective possibilities to carry it away, because it took a long time to do this with a shovel and garbage bags. At Akumal Beach it works better. But anyway, the beach is beautiful, we saw a lot fish and turtles in the water. And to see a turtle nesting in the night is just amazing. One woman, who is responsible for the observation and registration of the turtles wasn't very friendly. She took the people up to 30 meters away, so that you could not see anything in the dark. Fortunately she wasn't there every night, so that we saw a turtle nesting not far from us.
We could recommend this condo in La Bahia, we felt very comfortable.
Thank you for your helpful comments. We love knowing you really enjoyed your stay. The building is closing Aug 2017 to make some nice updates, including addressing the rain leakage. We are guessing you alerted the staff on the wifi - normally they can re-set it, and it sounds like they did. We are so delighted that you saw a turtle laying eggs - it is such an amazing experience! Enjoy the memories of your visit! Your Caribbean Fantasy, Inc Team Jill, Toni, Amanda, Michelle, Sibley and Lisa

Consistency is what makes our return to LaBahia a wonderful vacation. Oceanfront, well maintained, wonderful staff and perfect quiet location make for an enjoyable time. This is our 4th visit and this year it was in #7 and #8. Our family had the top floor and both units met and exceeded our expectations. The views and breezes are welcoming from the high perch and birds delight in stopping by for a romp on the deck wall. #7 has a rear deck, great for sunsets or a respite from the ocean breeze. Every unit has it's own personality that the owner shapes. #7 has some beautiful built in cabinets for storage.

Wonderful condo, amazing view from the top floor. We usually rent beach level, but we rewarded with this great experience. It was a windy time of the year (between Christmas and New Years), but the area is still one of our favorites. La Bahia 7 was a perfect size for the two of us (even though it has the extra bedroom that we never even set foot in). The bathroom would be small for two couples. Kitchen was adequate (some limited kitchenware that could be improved). La Bahia staff are fantastic and take great care of the place and always available to assist. The complex is missing a pool, but otherwise you can't go wrong with a stay here.
CF Note for future guests: There is a pool at La Buena Vida just down the beach for guests to use as patrons - a place all guests love hanging out. This takes away the noise from having a pool out your condo. Sometimes as patrons, you can use the pool 2 doors up at La Lunita too.

We really enjoyed our stay in Akumal. La Bahia is located in a great place for us, off the beaten path with little to do but enjoy the weather, beach, and water. My only two wishes would be for a larger bathroom and a swimming pool. The staff was outstanding and the building was very clean. We will consider la Bahia on our next visit to Akumal.
Exactly what we expected, beautiful
For a stay in Apr 2016
My husband, I and our two teenagers stayed for 5 days. The place was really comfortable and the view from the living area it's beautiful. The living room couches are extremely narrow but this was the only minus, so not a big deal. Great place to relax and swim.

Great location - walkout from condo to beach - have stayed at both #7 and #8 (top floor) which means walking 4 flights of stairs but so worth the view! Staff here are excellent - always accommodating and helpful. The sargasso on the beach in March of this year was not great - but when the wind shifted it was not as bad. Look forward to returning one day...

We love the location and the condo on the third floor was just perfect. The views were unbelievable and the neighborhood was so clean and quiet. I will return to this location.
Beach Front Condo in fabulous Akumal, Mexico
Chill out and relax. Wonderful stay. Staff were fantastic. Out the door of the condo and just a few steps to the loungers. A few more to the ocean. Basically the beach and ocean in your backyard. Easiest hangout at the beach place ever. Want a drink, snack or need to use the bathroom, it is right there. View is over the top. Clean. Somewhat limited to dining out options. Shower pressure is weak but not a game changer. Bring your snorkel gear. A quick stop at the Chedrui or other store on your way is a must for groceries.
Serene scenic spot in Akumal

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.
Wonderful apartment in a wonderful place. Spectacular view: at one side the bay at the other the jungle. See You soon in Akumal!
This is our first time staying at La Bahia but not out first time in Akumal.. Our penthouse was amazing! Breathtaking views morning, noon & night- Could sleep with the windows open and just heard the waves crashing in! We were in a perfect location, within walking distance to everything Akumal has to offer! The complex is safe and well manicured. The unit was well taken care of and had everything we needed! The staff at La Bahia are wonderful! We will defiantly be returning to La Bahia in the future!

This was our fifth stay at La Bahia, Half Moon Bay, Akumal. Each time we have stayed at the same apartment, and we are obviously great fans. Fortunately the beach is very shingled, requiring special swimming shoes or foot fortitude to swim there, but this means you are not over-run by the Playa Carmen or destination resort crowd. But the sandy beach is only a short drive away, turtles are guaranteed to look you over, and the coral everywhere is fantastic--especially at the swimming park at the end of the road. All within walking distance (although the sandy beach is about 20 minutes away on foot). La Bahia is very well run, always clean and well equipped, always helpful staff, and close to three rustic but very fun restaurants! We have indeed recommended it, and encouraged friends/family to accompany us on many trips. In short, if you are not a disco fan, and like to swim with turtles and prepare your own breakfasts, this place is for you!
One very major tip: You will obviously wish to stock up at big-box grocery stores as you drive south from Cancun airport. Do NOT leave your car unattended in the store parking lots; thieves abound and spot rental cars easily. And never, never rent a car from Fox.
We stayed six nights and it was the first time we didn't stay at an all inclusive. We loved it and we would definitely go this route again. La Bahia had two balconies and two bedrooms with ample space. The staff we friendly and helpful and looked after us from our arrival at 1:00 in the morning to our late check out in the afternoon on the last day. The basics like dishcloths etc. could use some refreshing, but other than this, we were please with this unit (#7). It was within walking distance to akumal beach and restaurants. We loved every minute we were there!
"Loved each moment"
We booked through Caribbean Fantasy Inc. Booking was simple & informative. We've been to akumal three times and this was our first experience with renting a condo. We couldn't be happier with our vacation. The unit was wonderful with breath taking views. The area is safe and friendly. Renting a condo gives one more freedom to support the local community & small businesses of Akumal.

We absolutely loved Akumal. Our condo, #7 in La Bahia, was terrific. We had a balcony to the East for sunrise, and a balcony to the West for the sunset. What could be better!
You did a fantastic job. The staff at Playa Paradise, La Bahia, could not do enough for us, and we experienced a wonderful bonding. Thank you. Thank you.
Mark and Ute loved our condo and MX.
Everything worked out nicely, no worries! The staff was accommodating and very helpful and friendly.
Mona, you did a terrific job for us, mucho gracias to everyone involved again and again.
