      I highly recommend this property! We had never been to Akumal before, and were VERY IMPRESSED with the quaint atmosphere as well as the wonderful property management and staff. We traveled with several couples, and we all had a chance to do what we wanted – very convenient to cancun, playa, and cozumel as well as many other places of interest. The golf carts were PERFECT to get around in town, we didnt even need a car. It was a very safe, private area, with plenty of beachfront ammenities (bars, restaurants, surf shops, etc.). You can hop in the water off of the back patio and swim/snorkel in the lagoon, and the house was AWESOME!I travel extensively, and this was one of my favorite experiences.

      Oh, my, what a wonderful place, but I would never go back until the sanitation system is upgraded. For this money, the smell of untreated sewage shouldn’t be a problem. The stench, especially upstairs, was so bad my wife couldn’t sleep there. The maintenance man tried to convince me I was just smelling fumes from the water heater….no, no , no no. I eventually diagnosed it and a workaround myself. The horrible smell was coming up through the drains in the shower! The smell was 95% diminished by covering these with the white rubber discs on the floor of the shower…hmmm, maybe this has happened before and nobody bothered to tell me about it. This workaround made the house tolerable, but back by the casita is where the grey water comes up, and it smelled of sewage. A rubber disc ain’t gonna fix that. (The casita itself did not have any odors.) This problem is really a shame because I otherwise loved the property. A 2nd problem is that these homes are on a very narrow lot, and the next villa is therefore *really* close. Unfortunately for us, for three days there was a family next door with small children who shrieked and hollered unceasingly until past midnight. Most people aren’t so inconsiderate of others, but bring your earplugs in the event you get unlucky. The problem is exacerbated by one’s windows being constantly open so the noise intrudes prominently. Imagine vacationing 30 feet from a playground. I had a great time *despite* these issues, but if you’re going to drop $$$$ you probably want better. Oh, and the internet didn’t work. Couldn’t be repaired. They were kind enough to lend us a data card, which took a couple of hours of thrashing to get up and running, and then only one person at a time can use it. Once again, if I was paying $ for accommodations, I’d shrug it off, but paying $$$$ and it says “Wi-Fi”, I expect Wi-fi to be available. Sorry, Casa Bella, you were Casa Smella.

      the house is tryly a good pick, after having stayed in many properties in Akumal – this was probably the best house so far, it combined everything what we were looking for!

      We’ve stayed at this villa in the past and have always had a great time. Anna the housekeeper is so kind, she showed us pictures she took with us more that 8 years ago. The house is located on the most beautiful lagoon. Can’t recommend it enough and can’t wait to return.

      This was our families first time vacationing in a non-all inclusive….It was a good experience overall since we spent it with good friends. The property itself is as pictured however, much smaller and older in reality. The grounds could be better kept and they are not as “lush” as described but clean. The pool is very small and was most often dirty (becasue of high winds) but was used very little by us. The main villa was not as clean as expected with an ant problem. The casita which our family of 4 stayed was spacious, clean but lacked of kitchen supplies and we had to take from main villa each time we needed something (utensils,bowls,pots,coffee cups). Anna & Ivan were good when we saw them. We were usually gone or heading out. There was a problem with clean towels and we had to use the same towel more than 2-3 days in a row….I think that could have just been poor communication on our part but expect clean for sure after 1 day….The golf carts came in handy for the trek to the beach (we rented a second)although our first one was not there when we arrived (which is included in rental) and had to go and get it. The weather was not Mexico’s best that week which made snorkelling in the lagoon a little less than exciting (one of the reason’s we rented there) but Akumal beach made up for that!Def one of the best beaches we have visited.

      The views from this house are amazing. The property was very well kept. The snorkeling was great with lots of coral and fish to look at as well as a few turtles. You felt secluded with it being so peaceful and relaxing you just dont ever want to leave.

      We can’t say enough about the time we spent at Casa Bella. From the time we were picked up at the airport without a hitch, to the time we left for home, we were delighted with every aspect of our trip. The house itself is amazing. The views out every window and deck are unbeatable. The location was perfect for snorkeling everyday in the lagoon or a short golf cart trip down to the halfmoon bay or Aukmal bay. Each with it’s own unique attraction. The best part may have been meeting Anna and Ivan who took care of the house and us as well. Anna cooked a wonderful meal for my birthday and Ivan cut down and opened coconuts for the kids to try. The management was wonderful, We didn’t have to worry about a thing. I would love to go back.

      Loved the location of the house in the lagoon. Felt very safe with security gard there. Nice housekeeper everyday. Beds were hard , the guest house was infested with mold and we had to move people into the main house because they were getting sick and the smell was bad. The main house was great and had great balconies to be outside. The house comes with a golf cart, but we had to go pick it up (2 miles away) and put down deposit. LocoGringo was super great to work with, i have used them twice now and will definitely use their service again.

      Great experience. I have been to Akumal a few times but had not stayed in Casa Bella. The other five in our group had never been to the area. They all loved it from day one and are talking about how and when they’ll be making a return trip.
