Lol Ka'naab 5 is a spacious beachfront condo that is centrally located on the sandy section of popular Half Moon Bay in Akumal. 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 preferred properties and one of our client's most favored 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 amazing hosts, the units are clean, well kept, and stunning. The tap water is potable and extra drinking water is provided. The small beachfront pool is a favorite of families and sits slightly higher than the main beach adding some privacy for guests.
This condo has been featured on HGTV's Beach Bargain Hunter!! It is a 2nd-floor center unit, beachfront, offering spectacular elevated views. It faces directly out to the pool and beach beyond. Lol Ka'naab 5 is a 2BR/2BA unit, with views of the ocean from the master bedroom with a queen bed and either 1 king or two twins in the 2nd BR. Both bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with rain showers, unique to the building. AC in the bedrooms, room fans. The wifi is strong here. The unit has tile in the kitchen and bathrooms, and the entire unit has marble floors. This unit is one of the few at Lol Ka'naab with a safe. The owners have added some fun twists for the unit. The owners have also added special guest details to enhance your stay: flashlight, first aid kit, shampoo and conditioner, and special ecologically safe suntan lotion and bug spray. A beach BBQ is available for the guests. A crib and high chair may be available, please inquire in advance.
This area is ecologically protected and famous for its sea turtle nesting grounds. Turtle nests can be found in the sand just north of Lol Ka'naab. Excellent snorkeling is right outside your door!
You will love your stay at Lol Ka'naab 5!
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!

There had been a Problem with our original reservation. Lisa jumped to action and worked during her off time to make sure we got this beautiful condo for a week. Right on the beach, a sweet little pool, excellent cleaning service and wonderful caretakers! We never needed for anything and had a splendid time in this paradise. Safe and quiet. Restaurants within walking distance. And easy to catch a collectivo back-and-forth to town, for good shopping. Highly recommend working with Lisa on any rental.
Ive already forwarded her name to a friend this week!

We've stayed in Akumal and Lol Kaanab many times. Lol Kaanab has a great location right in the middle of Half Moon Bay. It is convenient for snorkeling, diving, restaurants, and other activities. The condo is very comfortable with great management on-site and the daily maid service does a great job. If you want to relax away from the busy towns of Tulum or Playa del Carmen and away from the cookie-cutter all-inclusives then Akumal is a great alternative to just chill out and relax. We'll be back soon.

Incredible place! The view of Half Moon was so beautiful! The space was immaculately clean. AC worked very well, the hot water for showers was plentiful and the staff was very kind and always had a welcoming smile ready! We would recommend Lol Kanaab #5 and hope to return soon.

Everything was fantastic, exactly as the website announced. The views, the apartment, the cleanliness and the welcome. The access to the beach of Akumal ('that of the turtles', not the one in front of the apartment) is a bit complicated. Many guides want you to hire them, and they tell you that it is the only way to access the beach. To read the advice of the website of this Airbnb, just tell the guardians what store/restaurant/ bar you go to and let you in; even park, you can also eat / breakfast at the akumalito lunch and give you a pass. If you go without a guide to the beach, you can only swim/dive the first 80 meters of the beach and do not go there anymore (there are federal agents that monitor); it is difficult (not impossible) to see turtles. If you hire a guide, you can go beyond, and we saw turtles! We hired 600 pesos each at the Dive Shop, on the road the guides proposed us for 500, but they inspired less confidence.
Everything was perfect. Thank you.

We had a very nice stay at this Akumal beachfront apartment! View from our balcony was incredible. It was lovely furnished and beds were comfortable. Bathrooms were beautiful. Rooms were spacious. Elio and his staff were always there to help us with our needs. We will definitely return.
Beautiful property and condominium - perfect location. Would absolutely stay there again.
This condo is on a quiet little part of the Mayan Riviera. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and small but functional kitchen. There were a lot of small but helpful touches. Purified water there for our use at all times. Snorkel gear for adults and some for kids. Beach towels. etc. The view from the patio is amazing, we spend a lot of our mornings lounging in the hammock and enjoying the sound of the ocean and the nice ocean breeze. We used the pool everyday, perfect temperature and a way to cool off on a hot day. The beach around the condo was a little rocky, so I would suggest bringing water shoes so you can walkout into the ocean. The seagrass was there in force (3 feet or more high in front of the the building) and slightly smelly, but it didn't bother us really, we just walked up to the North part of the bay for swimming and snorkeling. Lots of coral and fish. If you want a seagrass free swim on a more sandy beach just go to the beach in Akumal, behind the Dive shop, it costs 100 pesos, but it is worth it. Or go to the YaKul Cenote just down the road. It is a bit of a hike into town takes about 25 mins or so...so a bike rental ($8 a day) or golf cart ($40) is helpful. We couldn't fit all our kids on the golf cart and not all could ride a bike so we just walked (which was a little hot.) There is perfect AC in each room which made the heat outside no problem. The maid service is thorough and friendly. All the communication I had with the property management was quick and helpful. I have no problem recommending this condo to everyone. Super relaxing, beautiful, quiet and peaceful. Thanks for the wonderful experience.
Great condo in amazing setting!
We loved the condo and Akumal. It was great to be able to snorkel right in Half Moon Bay. We saw amazing sights, including a school of squid and a 4 foot long barracuda! We also happened to walk by when a turtle nest hatched and had the opportunity to help release the baby turtles into the ocean. We rode bikes everywhere and were able to go deep sea fishing at a very reasonable price. The condo was perfect, very clean and adorable. Everything was in great condition! Would love to stay there again.
Ideal location on half Moon Bay. All amenities and wonderful Oceanview. An easy short single flight of stairs to get into room. All was perfect except the Sargossum weed that is inundating the area.
Lodging with location 15 minutes from the places where the tours of Cancun and Playa del Carmen offer to take you and is the best natural beauty of the Riviera Maya; Cenotes, Xcaret, Tulum, etc ... Excellent geographical location for a cultural and recreational trip. Very attentive people in charge of receiving us.
We loved this charming little place. Very clean and quite. Everyone says dont go to Mexico, its not safe . Mexico is just about the only place we vacation. Weve never had any problems. We felt very safe here. This condo was just what we needed. The price was right. Our only problem was with Mother Nature. There was a lot of sea weed and the workers couldnt keep up with it. Overall we loved this place and will go back.
Great location right on the beach, nice place inside and nice pool in the back.

This place is the absolute perfect beachfront apartment for a family. We loved being able to see the ocean from our bed, while our son slept peacefully far away from the living room.
Everything was perfect! From the beggining to end. We are definitely coming back. They took care of all the details to have a perfect vacation, cleaning, recommendations, equipment in the department to do snorkeling. The private beach very quiet and the pool perfectly clean. I will definitely go back. "

Another fantastic visit to Akumal thanks for LK5, its owners and Caribbean Fantasy! The condo was immaculate and the housekeeping and grounds staff work so hard to make our stay enjoyable. Thanks!
We liked it very much! The location was great. The equipment was very nice, provided with many small details. The manager lives locally, is very friendly and knows the entire environment.
It is a very comfortable and well equipped apartment. Spacious. With everything we needed: beach towels and bath towels, cleaning the room every day except Sunday, TV with cable, Internet, hot water, fans and AC. Equipped kitchen, large bottles of water, board games, film and books. A beautiful and clean pool. Spectacular sunrises. Good diving in front of the building. Excellent restaurants and walking opportunities very close. Highly recommended.
We really enjoyed our stay in Akumal. The condo is well equipped and the location is excellent. If you go with children they will take advantage of the pool. Thank you very much!
Beautiful location -- Half Moon Bay is lovely and quiet and an easy walk to great restaurants. The snorkeling in the bay was terrific, too. The condo was very clean, well equipped and nicely decorated. We had a great time!
We greatly enjoyed the condo and being greeted on arrival with a smile and a bottle of wine. The view was great, beach clean and not crowded and location very scenic. For early risers, the sunrises are spectacular! We went snorkeling, swam, enjoyed local restaurants (La Vida Buena and Lunita within walking distance) and took a day trip to the ruins of Coba and Tulum. We would highly recommend the place!

Had an amazing stay. GREAT PRICE, Right on the Beach. The open lay out might not be for everyone in the master bedroom but works for close family and friends.
We had a fantastic time. Loved the location! Thank you for your help with booking!
Clean and comfy place. The view was great. Safe area. Everything was as advertised. The building staff even worked with us on a couple of issues on our end. Would recommend!
We loved the serenity of Half Moon Bay relative to very busy Akumal Bay just around the point. The apartment was exceptionally clean and it was so soothing to hear the waves and soak in the view. The owners have a comprehensive guest book at the apartment with all kinds of info. Very nice. As described, it's a bit hard to get in the water because of the rocky/corally shoreline so water shoes are a good idea. It was super relaxing and we'd consider staying here again. Thanks everyone!
This was such a nice place to stay and it had everything that we needed. There was a storm one night and we lost power for about an hour. There were flash lights and candles. There were showers for a couple of days while we were there, there were ponchos and an umbrella. One of our granddaughters cut her foot on a shell, there was a first aid kit. The elastic band broke on a head band and there was a sewing kit. There were pool and sand toys outside for the kids. Very rustic traditional mexican decor with all the tile which we love. Books and games for the kids. We had a wonderful stay here. Can't forget the best thing of all, the view was just as described. Simply beautiful. Thank you.
The best location and views of all - a perfect condo for our family!

The view from the condo was outstanding. Three negatives were the condo had ants in the kitchen and no matter what we did we had to throw food out when ants were found on it. Also when we got there around 3pm we had to wait to get into the unit till about 6pm because there was men installing a wifi unit. The wifi signal did not reach the front bedroom. The unit was pretty clean other than the ants. The balcony was wonderful. We had a great family vacation,

Best deal on a beach condo with a pool in Akumal!
Beautiful location, the condo was clean and well maintained and in a great location for all amenities. You would need a car or take a taxi to get groceries because the small stores in Akumal are pricey and don't have much selection. Snorkeling with turtles was a highlight for the kids. I would recommend this location for families but choose a ground floor suite for easier access to the pool if they are really young - although - that could be a water hazard....

Beach Front Condo in fabulous Akumal, Mexico
Great spacious condo in perfect location! The building is attractive and well maintained. Our 3rd floor condo was bright, open and spacious with a beautiful view. Office and cleaning staff were very helpful and do a nice job maintaining this property. Very peaceful location right on Half Moon Bay. Walking distance to restaurants and shops in Akumal. Snorkeling right out the door if the waves aren't too strong. Easy drive to several Cenotes, Playa del Carmen and Tulum. We will definitely stay in this condo again.

We love the water and great food but don't like big resorts and the 24 hr party atmosphere. This was perfect !
Very laid back community that felt like a neighborhood with very inexpensive dining. We swam every day across the bay and watched turtles just a few feet from the sand. When we felt like we needed to be a bit more social we walked down to Akumal center and visited the bars and cafýs where we met some really nice people, both locals and visitors.
Our drive down from Cancun was effortless and we were glad to have rented a car for the week instead of using the public transportation. We were able to explore Mexico on our own time and schedule that led to some fun adventures.
We have read about Mexico, it's beaches, jungles, turtles, ruins, etc... But to see fresh turtle tracks with nests, ruins from an ancient civilization and talk to the local inhabitants who share history and lore as though it was everyday life is something to be experienced. Adventure is where you find it!
Best deal on a beach condo with a pool in Akumal!
We really enjoyed our condo in akumel. The location was right on the beach with the town of akumel and the turtle beach about 2 miles away. We also enjoyed the locale restaurants. The condo was perfect for out family of four with a queen bed in one bedroom and 2 twins in the other.
Stayed: April 2015
Lol Ka'naab is in a fantastic location. We so enjoyed the pool for late afternoon relaxation and daily excursions to La Buena Vida for food, drinks and more swimming. All 4 units - including separate spaces for my family of 4, our friends with a toddler, my in laws and my mom - were well maintained with full kitchens, clean linens and towels, etc. The sound of the waves and views from the balcony were magical. The only tough part... which does not affect my review of Lol Ka'naab, but did affect my experience, was that we could not enjoy the beach. The beach was riddled with sargassum (seaweed/brown algae) so much so that we could not swim or snorkel from the beach outside Lol Ka'naab. We had been to the area about 15 years ago and it was this magical, un developed, white sand beach. It is no longer that. BUT... when the sargassum goes, the beach will still be amazing. This is a great spot!
CF Note - The sargassum is now being taken care of my the government. This was the first time in our 25 years that it has been like this - just a twist by ol' Mother Nature. http://www.riviera-maya-news.com/mexican-authorities-finding-permanent-solution-to-sargasso-problem/2015.html
LOVED #5 Lol Ka' Naab!
Thank you Caribbean Fantasy for ensuring us a relaxing vacation. Coming from northern Minnesota -we were ready for the sun and got so much more!
We would love to stay at Lol Ka'naab again. Liked the central location, the
little pool, and the ease for going snorkeling. Loved Caribbean Fantasy's little blue booklet full of restaurants and
sights to see.
