Located away from the crowds at the northern point of Half Moon Bay, La Sirena is quiet and peaceful. Some of the best views of the bay are available from here. The La Sirena property centers around an enclosed garden courtyard. The two bedroom condominiums enjoy a full ocean view on the sea side and lovely cool garden view overlooking the courtyard to the interior. The garden courtyard centers around a large swimming pool that includes a full lap lane.
Sirena 13 is a third level (top floor) unit overlooking the shoreline and beach area. High ceilings and a spacious floor plan help to create an easy airy feeling within the unit. From the main entrance you will arrive at the open living space that includes a dining area with seating for four, very large kitchen with ocean view and breakfast bar and main sitting area. The sunken sitting area is just a few steps down from the main entry level, creating the unobstructed ocean view from rear to front of the unit. The living area is comfortably furnished with built-in section sofa and is cooled with a large and quiet operating mini-split air conditioner. Glass doors off the sunken sitting area take you to the ocean side terrace that is well furnished for enjoying the view and breezes. This is a perfect spot to take it all in during the early morning and evening hours.
To the rear of the unit are the two bedrooms. The master bedroom is cool and restful. It is furnished with a king bed enjoys a garden side terrace and private bath. The guest room is also furnished with king bed and has a garden side terrace and private bath. Both bedrooms enjoy pillow top mattresses and are cooled with quiet and efficient mini-split air conditioners.

"Comfortable, and complete, with a view to remember"
Left on 07/30/2012 for a stay in July 2012 | Enero in OklahomaReviewed Jul 30, 2012Stayed Jul 2012
You will love the view, from this comfortable and spacious condo. The decor is lovely and, the condo well equipped. We enjoyed cooking in the large kitchen, sipping beverages on the balconies, or in the living area, all with lovely views.
The stairs must be noted, as they are many, but if you are in relatively good condition, will not be a problem and you can eat and drink with no remorse, as you know you've gotten your work out for the day.
The pool is nice and offers some shady retreat and change of pace from the beach palapas.
Snorkeling is good in half moon bay, and while water shoes are necessary for entry near the condos, easier entry just 2 properties down the beach.
The service from management, maintenance and Theresa/Sylvia (housekeeping) was exemplary. The condo has an aC in each bedroom and one in the main living area, which is nice, as you can keep the comfort level personalized per room. Marcelus repaired an aC, as well as a leaky shower head. He is very handy and speaks English quite well. We also had a microwave kaput, which is apparently common due to constant sea moisture. If you hear or smell something strange from a microwave, just unplug it and notify your manager. The unit was replaced the next day.
We enjoyed having high speed internet, and sat. tv in order to check the weather forecast. We used the dvd player to watch the slideshow of some photos taken on a rented underwater camera. I really enjoyed the hard boiled egg maker! I used it twice!
There were books to read and many of them had wonderful photos of the fish of the Sea below that wonderful expansive wall of windows.
I was excited about the hammock and I did use it twice, but it is a bit highly hung (needed a spotter to get in) and unless you are not sharing the balcony at the time, hangs in front of everyone else's view. Not sure it can be hung any other way, but most of the time I draped it out of the weather, so we could all enjoy the amazing view.

This was the 2d time we stayed in #13 and 3x @ La Sirena. We really like #13 --- it is generously appointed / not spartan. Staying on the top floor is great b/c of breeze and view. Overall Hector and staff at LaSirena are very helpful / My daughter and Teresa, the very sweet cleaning woman that has taken care of us for the past 3 vacations, are big buddies. In many ways our kids have been the decision makers re: which complex to choose and LaSirena is what appeals b/c it is large (for akumal) and the pool is biggest.

Can't recommend Akumal and La Sirena enough. Fantastic location in Maya Riveria, not crowded, convenient to Tulum and Playa Del Carmen. Half Moon Bay (right in front of porpoerty) and Yal Ku lagoon (a 3 minute walk from the property) are fantastic for snorkeling. Great places to eat in Akumal from the inexpensive to fine dining.

We stayed in Unit #13. It actually looks like the pictures - even better in fact. Beautiful views, calm and peaceful surroundings. My kids really enjoyed the pool. Staff was very helpful and friendly. This is a great place to stay if you are looking for peace and quiet in a paradise-like setting. We are already planning another trip.
"Outstanding Location for a Scuba Diving Vacation"
Left on 04/10/2008 for a stay in September 2007 | John S.Reviewed Apr 10, 2008Stayed Sep 2007
This is an outstanding location for a SCUBA diving vacation. The property was in great condition. The local restaurants were excellent. The snorkeling in the lagoon was spectacular and we were in easy proximity to the Cenotes. The only negative was the lack of internet access and the condo itself could have been a little cleaner.

La Sirena exceeded our expectations. Our jaws dropped when we walked onto the property and saw the pool, then we saw the view from the condo. Wow, was all we could say. Akumal Direct did a superior job, we would definitely recommend the service to all our friends. Thanks so much!!!
