Description

Affordable Beachside Living

 It is not a coincidence that this beautiful condominium complex is called “La Sirena” or “Mermaid” in English.

Here you will find everything the Queen of the Sea would want in her accommodation – including a soft, sun-kissed beach, Half Moon Bay reef with tropical fish and gracious sea turtles, a large turquoise swimming pool, impeccable service and airy rooms.

La Sirena is a set of condos along the beach on the north rim of Half Moon Bay that offers its guests captivating views of the Caribbean, much-desired privacy and a budget-friendly taste of a classy vacation.

Great Condos with Conveniences Close By in Akumal

Each of La Sirena’s oceanfront condominiums includes an open living and dining area, 2 spacious bedrooms where even king-size beds don’t seem too big, a cozy kitchen with a raised breakfast counter, two lovely bathrooms and a relaxing terrace with views of the ocean and the lush tropical forest to the north.

But the best part of La Sirena is its breathtaking views of the Caribbean and the majestic Yal Ku lagoon which is just down the street. Wherever you are in this sea condo, you will have clear blue sky and the azure ocean as your backdrop. The wall-size windows will not only add that “tropical paradise” postcard feel to your home but will invite a lot of natural light and the gentle ocean breeze into your living space.

And if you feel like taking a closer look at the underwater world of the reef, all you have to do is cross the raised sand area (complete with shady palapas and chaise lounges), put your snorkeling gear on, and dive right into the crystal clear waters of Caribbean.

This is truly one of those unique experiences that make you appreciate the beauty of Mother Nature.

If you want to, you can also check out the vast La Sirena swimming pool surrounded by lush gardens just a minute away from your apartment.

Adventurous and Fun Activities are Endless.

Since La Sirena condominiums are located relatively close to numerous activities and places of interest, you can easily bike or walk to the center of Akumal, the lively Playa del Carmen or mysterious Mayan ruins at Tulum.

Or if you are in for a real adventure, you can try fresh water diving or just take a day trip to the Cozumel Island.

There is no doubt that after spending just a few relaxing days at La Sirena and the Akumal area will make you forget about stress, worry, and mundane home chores.

So why not to give yourself and your loved ones the present of discovering the best of Mexico while staying in an amazing place! Inquire about la Sirena Condos today so you can plan your Akumal vacation.

We enjoyed our stay here. I loved that the kitchen had everything we would need, including a blender and coffee maker. Wonderful large covered balcony. Air conditioning worked well. There was no hot water in the shower one day, even after letting it run a couple minutes, but it seemed fine the next day. There were some ants in the kitchen, but I assume that's common around here. While the view is nice up on the top floor I wouldn't recommend this particular unit for elderly people or anyone who isn't steady on their feet. It's a lot of stairs up to the unit and many steps inside the unit itself - sunken living room, etc. If you're up for the stairs, it's great. We also enjoyed the swimming pool and access to Half Moon Bay, which was great for snorkeling. Akumal bay is a total circus so it was nice to be here where there are fewer people. We were also able to walk to Yal-Ku Lagoon/Cenote from the condo. There are only two restaurants within walking distance, but they are both good.

La Sirena was an ideal spot to spend our vacation. The location at the north end of Half Moon Bay minimized the impact of the seaweed and provided an easy entrance for snorkeling. The top floor unit was breezy and cool in the day and had a great view of the bay. The staff were very helpful and efficient and the place was spotless. The large pool was clean and inviting, and the garden was beautiful.

Manager's Response

Thanks so much for the wonderful feedback, Amy! We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and we hope your return to Akumal soon! Happy travels! :)

We were lucky to spend an entire month at LaSirena and loved every day of it! The condo had a wonderful view, from all rooms, and especially the balcony, where we spent most of our time. Francesca, the onsite manager was friendly, professional, responsive and extremely helpful. The kitchen was large and well equipped, so we cooked quite a bit. We loved the location for a few reasons: it's close proximity to the lagoon for snorkeling, being in the quiet part of town, yet only a mile from all the action, across the street from the National Guard, so we felt very safe. The pool and beach are well maintained and beautiful. Even when the resort was busy, it still felt very spacious and private. We'll come again!

We had a very peaceful and restful time in this beautiful place. The pool and inner court yard is very well maintained and beautiful. Our condo was OK but not as well equipted as it could be. The juicer didn't work and other things were substandard.
One morning I found a large scorpion in the kitchen sink. I killed it and then sent pictures and a message to the fellow from Akumal properties and never did get a response from him.

So good we didn't want to leave!

Our stay at the north end of Half Moon Bay at La Sirena Condos exceeded our expectations! Akumal is a charming, low-fuss village & we weren't interested in some of the other towns nearby that are way to crowded now. The location of our condo was ideal & we literally had the best snorkeling conditions around! There is an abundance of sea life right there: eels, sting rays, many types of colorful fish, sea urchins, coral (always wear water shoes!). We even saw bioluminescence! We had a picture perfect view of the Caribbean Ocean from our balcony & massive ocean facing windows. We were steps away from swimming & snorkeling or just relaxing under a palapa, listening to birds & feeling the breeze under the palm trees. The property was just as it is described, better actually. Everything you need is right there & we stayed for two weeks. Daily maid service was a real treat for us all & it felt like a true vacation not worrying about constant clean up (except tidying up little messes, of course). Akumal Direct always got back to me about any questions I had (& I had a lot!) & they even accommodated us when we needed to make a last minute change. They were incredibly thoughtful & patient which meant so much to our family of four traveling internationally for the first time due to COVID. We decided not to rent a car & stayed closer to home for the duration of our vacation. Instead we rented a golf cart one day & also the on-site bicycles for several days. These modes of transport made going out to dinner (La Buena Vida, Turtle Bay Cafe & Bakery), getting groceries or getting over the bridge to Akumal Pueblo for fresh produce at the local vendor stands much easier. Other than that we walked all over (to dinner a few minutes walk at La Lunita) & to Yal-Ku cenote & lagoon many times (which is a 5 minute walk). The pool area is lovely & the beach is paradise. I enthusiastically recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Akumal. We would love to return one day!!

My husband and I loved staying here. The unit is beautiful and spacious, room for a family or two couples if you wanted to share. The grounds are lovely, the beach front is quiet and you have snorkelling right at your doorstep in the protected bay. You can walk to a few restaurants near by if you want to eat out, or buy some groceries on the way and cook in the full kitchen. Great for entertaining. The lagoon is walking distance away as well. You need to pay to enter, but it would be a great day activity with a young family. Mayan temples near by and the town of Akumal.

Homey and great staff.

Akumal direct properties are located right in front of the beach and had an amazing view of the ocean. Make sure to ask about sargasso situation before booking but property does a lot to minimize it and was not too bad compared to other locations..they were very accommodating and communication was awesome. We left an iPhone and they were quick to return. Property was lovely

The condo we stayed in was overlooking the sea, just as the pictures show. This place is ideal for a quiet vacation. You can hear the surf all the time. The condo is on the third floor and you will have to climb 4 sets of stairs every time you go down to the beach or pool. I would not recommend this place for older people or those with difficulty walking. The location on Half moon bay is farthest away from the restaurants and shops but ok if you have a car. Sometimes you have to pay for parking, if you’re going to the beach for example. The kitchen is well enough appointed to cook meals in. The beds are great. And the air conditioning works well. The lap pool in the garden was lovely. Be sure to buy your groceries in Playa del Carmen or Puerto Aventuras because all food is more expensive in Akumal. Avoid the general Store at all costs. Bring body lotion because the air and sea can be very drying. The WiFi is somewhat weak and intermittent, so definitely get increased coverage for your mobile phone to use data. It’s a great place to chill.

Great place!! Exactly as shown in the pics. Filtered water provided during the stay; kitchen is adequate for cooking any meal. Bathrooms were basic & fine. Patio space has great views. Francesca, and all staff in the complex were very helpful & friendly; responsive in fixing an issue immediately with our shower. Pool is amazing, dedicated beach space nice & maintained. Parking was easy. Location couldn't be better - nice and quiet, convenient to many activities. Yal-ku practically right across the street. Snorkeling in the water just in front was beautiful; tons of nature & views while walking along the shoreline from Half Moon Bay down to Akumal Bay. Can't wait to stay here again!

We stayed at La Sirena the first part of July. It was very hot so the air conditioning was much appreciated. The unit was spotless, well decorated, comfortable and had a spectacular view. Gaspar, the property manager was fabulous and helped us deal with a number of issues from a malfunctioning rental car to advice on snorkeling trips. Snorkeling in half-moon bay was iffy as the current was very strong. Yal Kul Lagoon was great!

Just one minor inconvenience to be aware of: the door leading to the balcony has to remain locked as the balcony is not baby-proofed and babies could easily fall down. Our kids loved the pool and so did we; its shaded area is lovely.

LA SIRENA #14 - is always good for us. We're somewhat long term and may become more so. The unit is showing some age - faded cusions, chipped tiles and grout, the oven doesn't work and the sliding screen door is pretty rough. Once again we ended up with a barking dog in the unit next to us (Iguana #15?) Why people bring their dog and make it sit in their condo all day and night I'll never understand. This poor creature sat at the window and barked the entire time. We are planning a family reunion for next year and may need housing for 10 or so. I'll be looking around. Hector is the best.
THANKS AGAIN
JOHN BISSELL

Good centre for major Mayan sites. Good snorkelling in the bay. Good nearby restaurants. Great views from the balcony. Had a lovely stay. Many thanks to Reina for keeping the place spotless!

I was suprised to find fannel sheets on the king bed in the master bedroom. We enjoy sleeping with the windows open and A/C off. This was very difficult to do with fannel sheets in July. Suggest regular sheets be provided. p.s. The down comfortable was a very nice touch.

things were great ! but I would definitely recommend new bedsheets as the current ones are literally see-through !! not up to par ! Sams nearby has great ones very reasonable.. also, towels had bleach stains and were thin.. I've stayed in Akumal at similar condos 5 different times and this is the first for these issues... there was plastic on the dining chairs also (felt real cheapy ).. the place was great otherwise.. thanks, Stephen I would recommend this condo building, but not this unit.. thanks! Stephen
ps; I'm not a complainer beleive it or not ! but the colors here were also garish.. sorry ! (and I like bright colors)

The view from the condo was wonderul as was the property. There were a couple of very small maintenance items that need fixing (a light swith that needed to be wiggled and a sliding door latch that had to be played with to get it working). There is a very large private pool with lap pool that serves the condo in a beautiful interior garden. The good and bad about the beach is that once in the water there was no sand just coral. So water shoes or if snorkling scuba booties are very helpful. The good news is that the coral begins immediately so you see tropical fish with 15ft of beach. Great place, looking forward to returning.

Yes to La Sirena, No to #14

The grounds and location were great and especially the staff was awesome - but this condo did not look like its picture and was poorly equipped and furnished. There wasn't even a cutting board or a strainer in the kitchen. We had a condo so we could COOK! Felt like the owner had equipped at a garage sale. Saw MUCH better in other units. So, we loved the complex and people, appreciated the great service, but not unit #14.

Manager's Response

Hi Robin! Thank you so much for this review. It is very helpful. We have passed it on to the owner and management and expect these issues to be corrected very shortly. Again, thank you for taking the time to let us know. Sydney Reagan

We stayed at La Sirena Unit #14 in AKumal for 10 nights in Feb. 08. The unit is nice but the 52 steps almost killed us. It was 52 steps up and 52 steps down everytime we wanted to go back to our condo for something. We will never again stay in a unit that has steps because we hated the fact that if you were enjoying yourself on the beach in front of the building and had to go to the bathroom or get a snack or whatever, it was 52 steps both ways. We are in and out so much that this was a big inconvenience for us. The unit is very nicely decorated and clean. The view is beautiful. We enjoyed breakfast on the terrace every morning enjoying that view. Only real drawback is the 52 steps. If you don't mind steps, the place is great.

quiet and clean, away from typical tourists

This was a great decision. We stayed in Akumal to have a quieter vacation. The condo was clean, had all appliances working, and the 5-gallon water dispenser was refilled as soon as it got low. I didn't realize there was a DVD player in the condo-I would have brought some movies (as we had rain one or two days) for the kids. We walked to Yal-Ku lagoon, just down the block, and drove to the main beach and shops. Very low key. Went fishing one day and caught a mahi mahi; it was nicely cooked up by the main restaurant for dinner. We had rented a car and drove everywhere-no tours or buses or big hotels. I really liked that the condo was simple, clean, and authentic, not cookie-cutter. No elevator, just 3 flights of stairs. I would highly recommend this place if you are seeking a quieter, simpler vacation. The only downside was the main road that the condos and shops are on-it is simply bumpy, pot-holed, and we probably could have walked faster than we drove-it was that bad. Maybe the price to pay for authentic?
