A comfortable, new, 2 bedroom, fully furnished condo in the wellness-based community of TAO Inspired Living at the Bahia Prinicipe resort in Akumal, Mexico. It's centrally located for exploring Tulum, cenotes, Mayan ruins, stunning beaches, dining!

The space

This is a large, approximately 1000 sq ft. corner, ground floor level condo near parking. It is fully furnished with 2 queen bedrooms, king size futon sofa sleeper in living room and fully functional kitchen stocked with all dishes and cooking equipment. There is a dining area and good sized living area with flat screen TV and cable service. Stackable washer/dryer for your use in the unit. The condo is near the infinity pool and barbecue area which overlooks the golf course. It is colorfully decorated in a casual, Mexican rustic style to create a sense of relaxation and happiness.

Guest access

Free use of the TAO Wellness Center is included with your stay. It is a short walk from the condo, and is a lovely and peaceful three level structure with the feel of a tree house. There are daily yoga classes, a small fitness center, lap pools, free wifi and gift shop. Discounts are available for traditional Mayan spa treatments, including Temazcal ceremony, done on site.

You will also have free access to the pools and beach club of the Gran Bahia Principe resort and daily activities such as volleyball.
Discounts on golf, spa treatments and all-inclusive options for dining are available to add to your vacation experience. The resort encompasses 4 different hotels, a 27 hole golf course, 4 large dining buffets, small snack bars and bars at all pools, and numerous specialty restaurants. It is a nice option if you'd like the experience of a high end resort but be able to return to the comforts of your own condo in a more peaceful, quiet part of the complex.

Interaction with guests

Concierge service included. I am available by telephone as needed.

Other things to note

This lovely jungle setting with the comforts of a new and spacious condo is very nice to come home to after a day of exploring the area.
***There is ongoing construction at other buildings on the site and you will see workmen walking by. There is potential for noise that is not entirely predictable at this time. Overall it has not been a problem, but I have set the rates a bit lower until construction is entirely finished in the surrounding area.

Our short stay in Akumal was fantastic and with a rental car to hand there is plenty to see in both Akumal and the surrounding area. The apartment was very comfortable with everything you need and everyone was very helpful. We didn't make it to the Wellness centre but could see there was plenty to do at TAO residencies, and everything here was very well run. The beaches and snorkelling nearby are great!

The 2 bedroom apartment is lovely, clean and modern and has all the mod cons. The resort is lush, green and the wellness centre is a great place to relax after a busy days at the ruins! Guests staying here can also have access to the Bahia Principe resort for a daily fee of approx $58 which includes all food, drinks and access to pools. The location is about a 10 minute drive from Akumal bay and since we had a rental car getting around wasn't a problem. All in all this apartment makes for a wonderful stay and communicating with Pamela was easy and she was very quick with responses. I loved the apartment and would most definitely return!

We had a great time...... the apartment is very nice, everything you would want and then the Tao surroundings.... We were in the pool a lot and some of us joined the early morning yoga. The staff are very nice, 'Hola's all around, and they keep the place really beautiful. We did not visit the hotel but went to Tulum to eat instead. Lots of lovely restaurants and shops. Do visit the ruines and the beach at Tulum! Playa del Carmen is a tourist trap in comparison. Never mind, lots of people enjoy it! To get around we used 'collectivos', the buses that drive along the highway. Airconditioned, fast and very very cheap. No need to rent a car really. There is one every couple of minutes. So to sum up: Yes please, we want to return next year, we had a fabulous time:-)!

Dear Andre, Thank you for the feedback. I'm interested to hear you were able to get around ok without a car. Did you use the shuttle from the condo to get to where you can catch a collectivo or did you walk? In past the condo shuttle was very slow and unpredictable so it would be great to know how you managed so I can let others know. Warmest regards, Pamela

My family of six enjoyed our stay at Pamela's. The condo has everything that a family with children would need to feel at home. Luciana (the host) responding promptly when she was emailed with any questions or concerns. If you are coming from Cancun international airport, I would advise that you make your departure time for later in the day. Otherwise you will be like us, and have to wake up at 3am to make your 7am flight. It takes about 90 minutes to get to the condo from Cancun. I would definitely stay here again if I get the oppurtunity. Thank you Pamela for your hospitality.

We loved our stay at Pamela's place. Her home was perfect for our family of four. It was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. The beds were so comfortable. A lot of closet space. A kitchen that was well stocked with supplies. It was also very close to a nearby pool that was so convenient and refreshing after a long day in the sun. Beautiful landscaping. We had access to the nearby Bahia Principe hotel that gave us a chance to enjoy the beach and resort pools yet it was so nice to come back home to some peace and quiet. Her home is close to so many fun attractions. Close to Xelha, the ruins of Tulum and Akumal beach, which is the very reason we chose to vacation here. Pamela's place was paradise!

Perfect place to go with the family, we were 5 and the apartment was perfect for us. The residential area is really nice, you have great views and running tracks, the hotels that you have access, by staying in the residential area, served great food and has great pools and beaches. I recommended a lot!

I've always loved travel to exotic locations and meeting people from all over the world. In more recent years a career in health care and raising a family has kept me closer to home. Now that my youngest has "left the nest" I would love to provide an opportunity for others to enjoy the wonderful life here at the beach in Encinitas. I also have a new location in Akumal, Mexico to welcome new guests as of January 1, 2015! I know you will love visiting this wonderful location near Tulum in the Riviera Maya south of Cancun.
