Privacy... with everything taken care of for you. EASY
Whether lulled to sleep by the azure blue sea which is just a few feet away, lounging by the pool or on the seaside while sipping tropical drinks with homemade 'guac’'and chips or feasting on fresh grilled shrimp and chicken in the evening under the moonlight prepared by your staff at your beck and call, you will know you have found the paradise vacation you deserve and have been searching for.
If you don’t want to be completely disconnected, Dos Palmas (like any 5*****star accommodation) is completely wired, has AC, TV (100's of channels) and DVD … all there, all easy.
Even with all these special features, Dos Palmas, like no other luxury villa, is just minutes away (5 walking) from Akumal with its pristine mile long beach, swaying palms, beach bar, cabanas (called palapas), beach chairs, scuba and the best snorkeling available on the Yucatan. And the stores, quaint and unique have fine Mexican silver jewelry and local art. Next to the beach are fabulous restaurants featuring: baked goods, local catch fresh daily plus authentic Mayan be enjoyed in sandals and skirt or shorts. Yes quiet, easy, peaceful privacy at the house, yet ideally located, to have it all when you are inclined to seek it out. And the staff Rigo and Esther besides making life easy will make it unforgettable.
PS and did we mention ... You awake refreshed every morning in your 4,000 sq. ft 5-Star Luxury villa to freshly squeezed OJ and the smell of fresh brewed Mexican Coffee served daily by your on-property staff?

Our visit to akumal was from FEB 11 thru FEB 18, 2012
it was magnificent.
The house; the setting; the location; the accommodations were of a high quality, but the caretakers of the property, Easter and Rigo were beyond our expectations. The meals they prepared were worth the trip in itself, plus their Gentality made us feel very welcome.
Akumal and dos Palmas are jewels.
We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Casa Dos Palmas. Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice review. The house is blessed by our wonderful staff. They are the reason why staying at Casa dos Palmas is such a fabulous vacation experience. We do hope you will return when your schedule allows. Thank you for staying with us!

My family absolutely loved Akumal and Casa Dos Palmas!! The home was even more beautiful than in pictures and absolutely immaculate. Ester and Rigo were SUCH a luxury to have on site - fresh squeezed juice and coffee in the mornings, pool maintenance, fresh drinking water in each bathroom to use to brush our teeth - they took care of everything! Our only regret was that we waited until the end of the week to have Ester cook!! The area was so quaint and safe, and we LOVED La Buena Vida restaurant and bar only a short walk away. We are all frequent travellers and have been to and stayed in some amazing places, but Dos Palmas and Akumal is now one of our favorites! 5 STARS all the way around!!

We had a wonderful vacation and would recommend Casa Dos Palmas to anyone. We have been to Akumal many times but this was the first time with our three adult children and their spouses. It was also the first time staying in a villa and we may be spoiled for future trips.
Esther and Rigo were so nice, they took very good care of us, the fresh orange juice in the morning and salsa and chips in the afternoon is really a nice touch.
We will always remember this special vacation.

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Dos Palmas. It's a beautiful home, and the caretakers, Esther and Rigo, were so friendly and helpful. If you go, be sure and have them cook an authentic Yucatan meal for you!
“Perfect Family Vacation at Casa Dos Palmas...look no further”

We need to send 2 CDs back. What was our address? All 8 of us (6 were 20-30 somethings) had our best of the last 7 years of vacations here. House, staff, location, price, bar with a swing, condition of all rooms was tops. The views and 3rd floor lookout was perfect for cigar smokers. Beautiful experience and we would go there again. Thank you.

The house was in a great location for walking to town, shops, restaurants, etc. Views are quite stunning. Not as great if using the water matters to your party-- windy and sharp rocky shore. Only our most experienced and fearless snorkeler was willing to brave the water on this stretch, eve on the calmest day.
Maintenance on house was absolutely perfect. Pool was kept sparkeling as was every inch of the house. The wireless connection and DVD and SKY TV all worked perfectly -- not common in some places we've stayed in Akumal.
Kitchen was less equipped than other similar houses - perfectly fine if you don't plan on cooking a lot or are mostly making blender drinks for a larger party. A few new tools to replace the broken or missing items would bring it to 100%. The dishwasher was nice but really didn't matter because Esther was so very on top of things :).
Esther and Rigo were the very best onsite hosts we have ever had (8 trips). Warm, helpful, terrifically interested in making our family feel welcome. We even got to sample one of their holiday Tamales. We would stay at this house again just for the opportunity to have Esther and Rigo adding their care and magic to the trip.
