If you are someone who appreciates history, culture and tradition then you will get excited about Cannon House Suite!
It is one of the most historical accommodations in Akumal and, one of the very few that is truly situated right on the Akumal Bay. Yes, right on it and not just close to the famous spot or within walking distance or some blocks off Akumal Bay, as other accommodations are.
Just a few steps from your bedroom you will find yourself in the warm Caribbean where you can opt to go swimming, snorkeling or just getting embraced by the sun on the fine sands.
But that’s not what makes Cannon House Suite so unique. Each of its rooms carries an interesting tale which every resident in Akumal knows about, and in fact, you can claim to have stayed at a place with a rich historical significance!
To give you the details, Cannon House Suite was built by the very person who founded Akumal, Don Pablo Bush Romero, a well-known explorer and archeologist.
And the cannons displayed on the property were among Don’s famous finds from wrecked Spanish ships off the Quintana Roo’s Caribbean coastline. In fact, the artifacts in Cannon House are so important that they paved the way for the creation of the CEDAM or the Conservation, Exploration, Diving, Archeology and Museums, founded by Don Pablo. Other finds by Don Pablo and his group are on display at a CEDAM museum in Puerto Aventuras, some fifteen minutes north of Akumal.
So while you might think that a Mexican honeymoon or weekend getaway is all sun, fun and restful evenings, think again!
The house is not only a historical gem, it is also a comfortable getaway for a weekend, honeymoon or long family vacation. Besides its amazing location and rich history, it now offers all the modern comforts that you look for in your vacation that Don Pablo could only dream about, like air conditioning, satellite TV, Wi-Fi Internet and daily maid service.
Cannon House Suite itself consists of two spacious bedrooms, romantically decorated private bathrooms, a cleverly-furnished living room, a big ocean view terrace overlooking Akumal Bay and a fully equipped kitchen. However, with the lovely Lol Ha Restaurant & Beach Bar just minutes away from your house, you might not want to worry about cooking while on vacation.
There are also other activities available in the area such as sailing advenutres, scuba diving in the Caribbean on the second largest barrier reef in the world or exploring local restaurants and shops.
So you can really decide on anything and any activity for your vacation – but give us a call to get the best choice for a place to stay! Inquire about this famous Akumal home and be a part of the legend.

We recently stayed at the Cannon House Suite. This property is lovely, spacious and clean and the staff is top notch! We really enjoyed our stay. Even though this property is ocean front it is not on the beach. However, you are allowed to used all of the Hotel Akumal Caribe amenities and it is just a short walk to their beach.

Great place. We had a problem with the water smelling bad, but the staff got us a room at the Caribe hotel to shower in for the day (or we could've stayed over there if we'd wanted to) and went out of their way to make us happy. Water was fixed in a few hours as the storage tanks just needed flushing and cleaning and everything was fine. I hate to write anymore as it is hard enough to reserve this place as is!

The only negative is the furniture is very uncomfortable . Particularly the couches. Made it hard to relax in comfort in the evening. Otherwise it was great! Gloria the housekeeper is so sweet and keeps everything so clean.

Cannon House has the best view of the bay. Very quiet so you can hear the waves all day and night and just a short walk from the beach. The lady who cleans the house is very nice and helpful. The staff responded to our needs immediately. Jorge was especially helpful and attentive as usual. The staff at Lol Ha is great and the food excellent. La Buena Vida and the restaurant across from Casitas are both very good. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a nice quiet vacation.
I stayed in Cannon House for 4 days in July with my husband and 9 year old daughter. The house is absolutely beautiful - very spacious. The outdoor patio is huge with the most spectacular view! It gets very hot out there in the middle of the day but I really enjoyed relaxing and taking in the view out there every morning and evening.Unfortunately, during our visit, Akumal was under siege by huge amounts of Sargassum (as is the whole Caribbean). The main beach was a bit smelly from all the seaweed piled up at the shoreline. As Cannon House overlooks the water, but is not on the beach (rather a rocky shoreline) we were spared the smell and the mess. There are steps down to the water in front of the house so if you have water shoes you can get in that way and go snorkeling. Gloria, the housekeeper, came in every day and kept the place spotless. She is very nice! We had a great time staying in this beautiful property.
