“Fabulous Vacation for Family and Friends”

All we can say is WOW!! We were blown away by the beauty of the location and the House and Casita. We stayed with 3 families (total 6 adults and 3 teens). Two families stayed in the house along with the teens and everyone was very happy with their room accommodations. One couple (no teens) stayed in the casita and were very pleased with the privacy and yet inclusion in the total group.

The kitchen was very well stocked and Gaby and Zuma were absolutely amazing at taking care of the property and us. Any minor issues we experienced were dealt with very quickly and efficiently.

The Pool was definitely the highlight of the trip. It was large enough for relaxing in lounges (sun or shade) , playing water games, using multiple floaties, and it was a very welcome relaxing place in the evening.

As recommended by the owners, we arranged transportation from Cancun as a group and paid the driver to stop at Walmart in Playa Del Carmen for liquor and groceries. This worked very well.

We rented 3 golf carts from Mexi-Art in Akumal and it was the best thing we did. It is a bit of a jaunt to town and it was great to have these to get back and forth. There were several restaurants between the house and town and we tried quite a few of them. We were very pleased with the area for food options, groceries and a short golf cart ride to a great beach for snorkeling and the scuba centre. We NEVER felt unsafe in the house or between the house and the town of Akumal.

We are already planning to go back to this house in the future for an adult trip.

Thanks for allowing us to enjoy this amazing property!

“You must stay here”

Such a wonderful property. Expertly maintained by local staff, Gaby and Zulma. They were so welcoming and we had a fantastic time. The house has four bedrooms in the main house and a fifth bedroom in the "casita," a smaller house on the other side of the lap pool. It's a little walk in to town, but we enjoyed the fact that it was farther away from the main tourist strip.You must have Zulma cook for you at least one night. The property manager, Monica, did a great job of meeting us when we arrived and providing recommendations on local activities and restaurants. We've rented many houses over the years and this one was definitely impressive. Excellent experience - highly recommend.

“Wonderful Home”
Reviewed 6 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We visited with a group of friends and could't have been happier with our choice of Casa Colores. This home has great rooms with views, beautiful decor, and it is so well equipped. They have thought of everything from binoculars and a telescope to watch the wildlife, to pool toys and bug spray and flashlights for being out in the evenings. Gabby and Zulma were great. We also had them make a meal for us one evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. Although the water access in front of the house is rocky and too rough for swimming, Yal Ku lagoon is a short walk away and sandy beach half moon bay is a few minutes the other way. We spent a lot of afternoons reading, dipping in the pool and taking siestas and you couldn't find a better quieter place to do this! I would suggest it's best to have a car (or plan to rent a golf cart) if you are going to stay here as on a warm day it's quite a long walk to Akumal village (about 2 km) and in the evenings the road is very dark to walk on. Make sure you take a flashlight. Overall we had a wonderful stay in this wonderful home.

Not only were Gaby and Zulma wonderful caretakers but the nicest people you could ever meet. We hired them for a meal one night and it was excellent. How they cooked, set and cleared, and cleaned up for 11 of us is unbelievable. And then, of course, the food was so good. Best to hire them for a special evening early in your stay -- those leftovers are too good to leave behind. There were 12 of us in total. We ranged in age from 2 to 62 -- 10 adults and 2 children -- a mixture of family and friends. We each thought we had the perfect room. There was so much space and so many unique areas that everyone felt very spoiled. I had several in our group compliment me on a "wonderful find". We have stayed in Akumal twice before but this was the largest number of people yet. We could not have found a better place to stay. Everyone enjoyed Akumal Bay, Half Moon Bay, and Ya Kul Lagoon for snorkeling (sea turtles, barracuda, rays, squid, beautiful fish). La Buena Vida become a nightly experience and our Xel-Ha trip was well worth the money.
Everyone is talking about a return trip................hopefully soon.
