Read any book on Akumal and you will hear of Casa Romero, the first vacation rental house built on the lagoon, built by a close associate of the founder of Akumal. Once you arrive, you will see why he picked this spot: the best in all Akumal, across from a white sand beach vacation, with the inlet to the lagoon on the right and lagoon on the left, Casa Romero still features direct access to the lagoon and the wonderful views of both the lagoon and the ocean.
Now totally restored and redecorated to maintain its grandeur, you will find 3 BR villa rentals suites and truly spacious common areas for maximum comfort and luxury. There is one large bedroom on the ground floor with a king size bed. There are two bedrooms on the second floor: the master bedroom has affords a spectacular view of the lagoon from the king size bed and magnificent pink marble bathroom/dressing room. The third bedroom has both a queen size bed and a double bed and also has its own outdoor patio. Each bedroom is fully air conditioned.
Gaze over the panoramic view of the lagoon from the main living room which features dramatic two-story high ceilings along the roof line and comfortable seating areas for different activities. The flat screen TV provides US content via satellite and also has a CD/DVD player. Take advantage of the free WiFi internet access to send photographs to make your friends jealous, and use the supplied VOIP telephone for free calls to and from the US. Walk through the large patio doors which open onto a patio overlooking the lagoon and the outdoor pool.
Walk out a few steps from the patio directly to your private access to the lagoon. Put on your snorkeling gear, turn left towards the head of the lagoon and commune with parrot fish, angel fish, sergeant fish, and many other exotic tropical fish. Turn right and swim towards the sea and you may spot a turtle or ray after the lagoon transitions to a sandy inlet. With essentially no waves, the lagoon is ideal for children and adults, and offers magnificent snorkeling for both the novice and more experienced.
Back inside, past the powder room, the entry way, and the spiral stairway to the second floor, the dining room once again features a view of the lagoon and a custom built dining suite with table and chairs for 10. Beyond the dining room, the completely redone large kitchen features all new appliances including an icemaker with purified water, tile and marble tops, and all new cabinets. Fully equipped, any cook will feel at home and ready to go. (A microwave is also there for those of us who are cooking impaired.) With this kitchen and the fully stocked place settings, glasses, and serving dishes, you can choose to fix your own meals, go out to any of the area restaurants, or hire your caretaker to fix you some special dinners you are sure to remember.
Unique to all of Akumal, Casa Romero has a high observation tower with comfortable seating on the deck which encircles the tower. With a spectacular view of the lagoon, the ocean, and the surrounding area, you are likely to find this cool breezy hideaway your location of choice throughout the day and evening. You can often spot turtles in the inlet to the lagoon from the observation deck. A small refrigerator is provided for ice and to keep your drinks cold.

We are located in the small town of Akumal directly on the Caribbean Ocean in the heart of the beautiful Mexican Riviera Maya. Only 60 miles south of Cancun airport, the town is worlds away from the hustle and bustle of the party towns of Cancun and Playa del Carmen. In fact, it is the only place that retains the old laid-back, relaxed atmosphere that existed before the resorts took over much of the coast.
With lots to do in this family-friendly jewel, you can relax on the beaches, enjoy the many restaurants and boutiques, go to any of the nearby attractions including Mayan ruins, or, you can just kick back in your private complex and relax.
Easy drive or van service: 60 miles South of the Cancun airport on a four lane highway straight from the airport to the town.
