What Past Guests Are Saying
We visited with a group of friends and could't have been happier with our choice of Casa Colores. This home has great rooms with views, beautiful decor, and it is so well equipped. They have thought of everything from binoculars and a telescope to watch the wildlife, to pool toys and bug spray and flashlights for being out in the evenings. Gabby and Zulma were great. We also had them make a meal for us one evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. Although the water access in front of the house is rocky and too rough for swimming, Yal Ku lagoon is a short walk away and sandy beach half moon bay is a few minutes the other way. We spent a lot of afternoons reading, dipping in the pool and taking siestas and you couldn't find a better quieter place to do this! I would suggest it's best to have a car (or plan to rent a golf cart) if you are going to stay here as on a warm day it's quite a long walk to akumal village (about 2 km) and in the evenings the road is very dark to walk on. Make sure you take a flashlight. Overall we had a wonderful stay in this wonderful home.
Casa de Colores was a wonderful place to stay.
Not only were Gaby and Zulma wonderful caretakers but the nicest people you could ever meet. We hired them for a meal one night and it was excellent. How they cooked, set and cleared, and cleaned up for 11 of us is unbelievable. And then, of course, the food was so good. Best to hire them for a special evening early in your stay -- those leftovers are too good to leave behind. There were 12 of us in total. We ranged in age from 2 to 62 -- 10 adults and 2 children -- a mixture of family and friends. We each thought we had the perfect room. There was so much space and so many unique areas that everyone felt very spoiled. I had several in our group compliment me on a "wonderful find". We have stayed in akumal twice before but this was the largest number of people yet. We could not have found a better place to stay. Everyone enjoyed akumal Bay, Half Moon Bay, and Ya Kul Lagoon for snorkeling (sea turtles, barracuda, rays, squid, beautiful fish). La Buena Vida become a nightly experience and our Xel-Ha trip was well worth the money.
Everyone is talking about a return trip...hopefully soon.
Beautiful vacation at Casa de Colores
First off, the home is superb and wonderfully situated at the north end of Half Moon Bay with sweeping views of the water from nearly every room in the house. Great staff and amenities, this home has everything to make your vacation in akumal special and enjoyable. There are a few dining options are within walking distance and everything the town has to offer is only a short bike ride away, however we also loved staying at home to cook on occasion as you can't beat the view! While you can snorkel outside your door in Half Moon Bay, walk to Yal-Ku lagoon, hang out at the main beach in town or take day trips, I think the beauty of Casa De Colores is that you don't feel like you have to leave. Relaxing on the deck or by the pool with a good book is a great way to spend a day. This home would be good for families.

This was my dream vacation.
The house is lovely inside and out. My favorite get-away spot is in one of the hammocks on the roof. You can see forever and watch the sun rise or set by simply turning your head one way or the other. Not bad for catching a moonrise, either. Casa des Colores offers so much, it's hard to tear oneself away for other adventures, but they are definitely worth it. This trip we went to a secluded "fishing hole" on a canal leading to the ocean where, with the help of a spirited Mayan family, my son managed to snatch a baracuda nearly out of the jaws of a crocodile that was also fishing that day. After a hot and bumpy drive home, we found the pool at Casa des Colores just right for cooling off and rehashing the adventure until it seemed exaggerated enough to qualify as a good story. A family of Baltimore Orioles took up residence in a small bush at the side of the house while we were there, and iguanas ruled the sunny spots. I watched all of this action from pool or oceanside, comfy in my deck chair. Ah...
