Great condo right on the pristine white sandy beach with awesome snorkeling right out in front of the condo. #6 unit has a large wrap-around deck for lounging or dining, wi-fi, comfortable beds. Excellent housekeeping, managerial and grounds staff. Security gate attendant 24/7. Lots of fun things to do in the area including Myan ruins, Xcaret Park, Xplor, Hidden Worlds,Plya de Carmel, ferry to Cozumel. Good grocery store in Tulum and local market in akumal on Wed & Sat. Good dive shop and restaurants in akumal. Definitely want to have a car if you're staying at the Seven Sea's Condo to travel around to the sites. Driving was no problem. We did pruchase the Mexican auto insurance ($40/day plus the rental fee $161/wk, expensive but worth the peace of mind). We felt perfectly safe in this area of Mexico.
Thank you so much for your nice comments about your stay at Seven Seas condo 6 and South Akumal beach. It is great to know that you explored the area and that you felt safe visiting among the Maya people. They are the true gem of the Yucatan. Thanks for the tips you have provided for future guests. Thank you also for staying with us. Your business is apprecaited. We do hope to see you again next year!
“Beautiful Condo, Wraparound Deck Overlooking the Ocean - Perfect”
Left on 03/26/2012 for a stay in March 2012 | The Wickham-DectersReviewed Mar 26, 2012Stayed Mar 2012
The Seven Seas Condo #6 is beautifully decorated, well laid out, and had everything we needed. The master bedroom, living room and 2nd bedroom all open up to a large, wrap-around deck that overlooks the pool and ocean. There is a lovely constant breeze. Miguel (the condo manager) gave us wonderful ideas for places to go and to eat, and was a pleasure to have on site. The condo was cleaned daily - a luxury to not have to worry about our beds, dishes, floors, etc. We were truly relaxed at the end of our vacation! Akumal in general is a perfect getaway if you like a quiet atmosphere away from Cancun/Playa del Carmen. We have already recommended Seven Seas Condo #6 to family and friends.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts about your vacation experience while staying at Seven Seas 6. It is wonderful that you felt South Akumal beach was a perfect getaway and that you were able to relax. We appreciate your recommendation to family and friends! We also appreciate your business. Thank you for staying with us. We hope to see you again next year!

“Great Visit Unit 6”
Left on 04/08/2010 for a stay in February 2010 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Apr 8, 2010Stayed Feb 2010
The facility was great.
Terrific layout to the condo with large spacious rooms, outstanding porch overlooking the pool and beach. The manager and housekeeper couldn't have been nicer and took very good care of anything we asked. Nice sandy beach with lounges, pleasant pool for swiming because the beach has more coral than you can wade through. But good kayaking.
Extremely well appointed with furniture, linens and kitchen equipment.
Close to Akumal for restaurants and basic shopping, and a better swiming/snorkeling beach
The beach is quiet/uncrowded and very nice for a walk. Other guests were very cordial and pleasant company.
Excellent choice if you want quiet, privacy and security away from the "tourist traps".

Seems like the most desirable condo in the 7 unit, low key , beautifully kept complex. We loved the balcony deck, and ate many meals out there. It was a relaxing and attractive place- daily maid service was a plus--the only trouble we had was with the mysterious stove, which was difficult to light in the oven, and not all burners on top seems consistently operational.
The views, space, and sound of the ocean cannot be beat!

The location, weather, rental unit, staff were all outstanding. The locale is excellent for snorkeling and there are sufficient numbers of restaurants for evening meals when you decide not to cook in the unit. We would recommend this unit to anyone that is looking for a quiet get-away, far away from the big commercial resorts!!

You do not have permission to use my review. This was our second year in this unit. I know seven seas was closed in Sept. for repairs. No repairs or updating were evident in this unit. Towels a couple of days were quite "raggy." Overall fine - quiet beach is appreciated. We like Seven Seas, but may try a different unit.

We loved the manager, the condition of the property, the safety and beauty of the location, and the fact that we were close to Akumal and could walk there easily, but were away from the hubbub of it. The only negative of the location is the rockiness of the water entry. It is lovely to look at, and the condo is right on the sandy beach, but it is not a good place to walk into the water to swim, or to play in the surf. We drove to Tulum or Akumal for the kids to enjoy their lovely beaches. I would still recommend the property, and would stay there again myself, but other travelers should know that the water entry in front of the condo is not smooth sand, although the beach itself is pretty and sandy.

Could not have been better!!! Way beyond expectations and the host, Miguel, is the best. We want to go back for Thanksgiving, money permitting. The beach is great for enjoying the sun and sand and awesome snorkeling right out your front door. It is not conducive to swimming or playing in waves. But, a nice change from the beach we stayed at the week prior. Snorkeling was awesome and the condo was spectacular, we had #6 and it was clearly the best one because of the huge deck right on the beach and the size. Best place we've stayed in 3 visits to Mexico.
