“Most relaxing vacation ever!”
Reviewed 27 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This home was perfect for us! Our days consisted of sleeping in, snorkeling in the morning and late afternoon right out the back of the home, sitting on what we felt our own private beach, walking the beautiful sand beach and making amazing dinners in the kitchen which was well stocked for what we needed. Rita and Ellie the maid and landscaper were amazing. Rita helped us with directions and the home was spotless. Ellie raked our beach and cut us a fresh coconut so we could try the coconut water. The bed was SUPER comfortable. The pool was clean and private. We lucked out on the weather, as September can be rainy, but we had sun daily. The beach was not crowded and we only had about 20 people pass by every day. We had 2 turtles lay their eggs right on our beach in the middle of the night. We had a guard every night we were there that was friendly and made us feel safe. The palapa was perfect for sleeping under and we enjoyed walking to the Bakini Beach Bar for cocktails and tacos. We rented a car from Cancun and used it several times to go to the store, go to town for lunch/dinner. Highly recommend La Buena Vida for lunch and La Luna for dinner. We visited a senote in Tulum and rented a boat on the beach out front to go fishing one day. My husband cooked up an amazing dinner from our catch on the grill that same evening. We will return to this location/home again. We really did find peace and relaxation like no other vacation!

“Lives up to its name in EVERY way - view is unsurpassable!”

Wrapping up a glorious three weeks at this true oceanfront villa in Aventuras Akumal.

The website pictures don't do the view justice - it is phenomenal, whether from the beach itself, the outdoor dining area, the indoor breakfast table, or the linked bedroom patio!

And you really do have a little slice of private beach, with your own palapa, invaded only sporadically by envious passers by and, if you are fortunate, baby turtles hatching from their nest and heading to the sea (an unforgettable experience).

The villa is spacious - with two fabulous bedrooms upstairs and a serviceable one on the main floor. The three bathrooms are a nice luxury, particularly when coming in from the beach or the private swimming pool (a focal point for our stay).

Kitchen has all the necessaries other than an oven, and there is a propane BBQ outside (although lighting it in the evening wind off the ocean can be a challenge!). Large refrigerator is a definite plus.

Air conditioning in main room is a great plus - and in all 3 bedrooms too. So on the HOTTER days (and there were plenty), you can quickly cool off.

Our only warning - the Internet is shockingly slow (we expected slow as it is satellite and a remote area, but less than 1 Mbps speed means essentially unworkable for anything other than email). There is a DVD player - but no DVDs, so bring some for the evenings if needed, although the satellite TV works fine (and has English and Spanish programming).

Well-located for Akumal Town, and also less than 20 mins to Tulum and less than 30 mins to Playa del Carmen. All easy drives along the highway, once you master the retornos and the occasional lunatic driver! Plenty of places to eat out (see my various restaurant reviews) and also easy to get groceries and eat in -- tough to beat the view.

And, finally, the staff are SIMPLY AWESOME. Huge thanks to Rita, who looks after the inside, and Elly, who looks after the outside. Both are friendly, helpful and unobtrusive. And both brightened our days with smiles and greetings each morning. Felt like family by the end.

A shout out to Loco Gringo for organizing everything - helpful, proactive and lots of advance tips that we found very useful. Muchas gracias, Scott and Kay.

Sadly, the place is booked for when we can next return to the area, but we will hope for a cancellation!

“Picture perfect but a few drawbacks”

The condo is beautiful and comfortable for family or several couples. However, there was a party of cockroaches staying there too. I didn't want to be dealing with extermination (which doesn't always solve the problem quickly) so we chose to live with it. I'm sure the staff would have been responsive if I'd have complained while there. Housekeeping and everyone working there were very nice, responsive and competent.

The beach is beautiful and swimming is perfect. Lots of tropical fish up close, snorkeling is very fun. A car rental is a must unless you want to cook for every meal. There is only one small casual beach bar within walking distance and the all inclusive hotels do not allow non guests without a day pass. I would recommend ordering groceries to be at the condo when you arrive (available online). We arrived late, in the rain with no food and had to eat granola bars for dinner and tried walking to breakfast the next morning but it is too far. There are good fun places to eat in Akumal. Be sure to try Turtle Cafe.

We all enjoyed the beach, Mayan ruins in Coba, denotes and snorkeling.

Thank you for your comments about Villa Serenity. Yes, it is very unfortunate you choose to not report any issues pertaining to your stay to the manager of the house. Your issues would have been addressed immediately. This property is fumigated once per month. We have a jungle/beach environment in this location hence insects are possible. The villa is always maintained by the staff and cleaned 6 days per week. Your complaint is the first we have heard of your issue and no other guest has mentioned anything like you have presented in your post. You would have always been welcome to present a complaint while you were on vacation. We apprecaite your choosing Villa Serenity for your vacation.

“Amazing Home and Beach”
Reviewed 7 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Casa Serenity was just perfect in every way. From the friendly staff to the perfect location on the bay, the home had every amenity we could have hoped for. The selection of outdoor areas was incredible! We could have coffee on the upstairs balcony, breakfast under the covered patio, afternoon sun by the pool with an escape from the heat on the adjoining covered patio, dinner on the slab stone built in table in the back yard, and a romantic finish by moon light under the built in palapa at the edge of the shore! The beds were very comfortable, sliding doors were air tight and nearly sound proof, the kitchen amply equipped, and the bathrooms and built in closet organizers (not to mention all the finish work) were top notch. The beach is the an incredible powdery white sand that feels like you are walking on powdered sugar, the water is the amazing Caribbean turquoise that is made even more brilliant by the white sand entry that is nearly free of coral, and the dark blue contrast of the live reef just off shore for good snorkeling. The safety and security of the property with its gated entrance and parking area, and the overnight security guard (not that you need any of these) would reassure anyone not comfortable with the idea of travel in Mexico, but for those of us that have traveled to this area for many years know there is not safer place to be. We weren’t sure what to think of a bay that was book ended by resorts and being there at the peak of the US spring break, but we only saw a handful of people every hour walking by at the busiest time of the day! The name of the home really does say it all, and we cannot thank you enough for sharing this space with us. We hope to be back next year!
