We enjoyed our two week stay in Tao condo, my husband and our two grown children and new son in law. The condo was clean and comfortable, location was private but not secluded. Nice to have laundry facilities in condo. Enjoyed the beautiful pools and the yoga classes. My husband runs and the expansive grounds allowed for safe and long runs. The grounds are beautiful with jungle all around. We had a car and drove to ruins, and beaches in Tulum and Akumal, went diving in censored and snorkeled. Could have stayed another two weeks!
We stayed for 9 days and really loved the condo. The grounds were immaculately clean and the staff was very friendly. The roof top patio was amazing and really a highlight of the unit. The kitchen was well appointed and we cooked many meals during our stay. I would stay here again and would recommend TAO to others.
My husband and I stayed in this penthouse for a long weekend. It was comfortable and had everything that we needed. We enjoyed a day pass for the resort and beach one day and spent the rest of our time sightseeing in Akumal and Tulum. There are many things to do and see in the area. Our most favorite part of property was the rooftop deck. It was the perfect place to relax after a long day in the sun. I would highly recommend this condo.
Tao is in a huge plot of land with about 4 different resorts in the area which made it a hassle when trying to get our beach access bracelets. Without a car the place was just to big and confusing. The actual room was nice and got comfy after the initial proses of getting key.
The rental unit (Penthouse2) with its rooftop terrasse was a fantastic, very clean rental that gave us the feeling of a home! Having done the all-inclusive stays at the Bahia Principe Don Pablo Collection Sian Ka'an on numerous occasions, we were concerned about not being in an all-inclusive environment. Well, we had an amazing time!! Our pool is well set up with numerous chairs, tables and a bbq. It is calm and relaxing. The wellness center also has two pools within a five minute walk. It also has a gym and they have yoga seasions almost every day. Having our car rental gave us the oportunity to go to a variety of restaurants close by in Akumal(10 min drive), a little further in Tulum (20min drive) and even further Playa Del Carmen (30min) We could also reserve for dinner in the "Bahia" restaurants for 40$us per person or at the buffet for 35$ per person. Ou rental gave us access to all of the Bahia facilities and access to the beach!! All in all, we had complete freedom to leave to resort to visit elsewhere while having a fantastic place 2 bed and 2 bathrooms and at a price equal or better than the all-inclusive rate!! Can't wait to return this fall. ThAnks to all of the TAO rental staff for helping us have a wonderful stay. Best regards Marc and Julie.
We are 3 adults and 1 4 year old child. This place was perfect for our family. First, I highly recommend a car. You can rent one from the airport for a good rate, ( we used avant) and the drive is easy. Don't be intimidated driving here. The hwy is nice and easy to navigate. We only visited the BHP resort once, we didn't spend much time there but it looked nice if that's what you are coming for. We visited Akumal for a few days and also Tulum, which made this a great place because you're close to both. To go to Akumal beach is just 5 minutes. Tulum is approximately 10-15 minutes. Tulum beaches are a must to visit. We used the Super San Francisco grocery store which I highly recommend. Very nice, great prices, and large. It's located right off hwy 307 going into Tulum, on the right.We also highly recommend Oscar and Lalo's restaurant. It's also located off hwy 307 on the right side, it's not in Tulum but before you get into town. It's truly a cool place to visit with great food. The grounds of Tao are wonderful. It was so nice to come back at the end of the day and relax on the rooftop in the whirlpool tub. My son also loved having Netflix available. I do have to mention, my husband found the bed to be too firm. I found it to be fine. The bedding is nice and comfortable. Wifi worked great for us. If you have questions, please feel free to ask. Thanks to the owners!
The whole family had a great time at the TAO residential near Akumal. We couldn't really fault the apartment which was spacious, spotless and well appointed, even to the rooftop hot tub as advertised which we enjoyed after each day of exploration. Luciana, our TAO host was always on hand to help with our queries. One word of advice, although you can travel around the Riviera with taxis, colectivos and organised tours, a hire car would give additional flexibility. TAO do provide a service to get you to the main Grand Bahia Complex which is fine except it stops operating after around 3:30 pm so you can find yourself stranded at the main hotel. Even so, the helpful concierge at the Sian Kaan Hotel did manage to sort out a ride one way or another which was great. Overall, renting an apartment can be a cost effective alternative to the all inclusive offers of the main hotels.
The experience was beautiful, from the arrival the cool loft with soft music waiting for us. The space is very comfortable, being on ground level gives the feeling of being in a house, with beautiful background trees on the terrace. From the TAO condos's amenities, the TAO Wellness Center is the one that captivates me, two swimming trails with sea water in the middle of the jungle, calm and meditative atmosphere. It is essential to rent a car to move inside the complex and to go to neighboring beaches, I especially recommend going to Xpu Ha, Xcacel and Tulum, for dinner I recommend the restaurant "La Cueva del Pescador" in Akumal. Thanks for everything, best regards.
Great place to stay while exploring Akumal and Tulum area! Very clean, all the amenities one needs plus great water pressure and hot water and a washing machine/dryer. It's close to both areas and we loved it because it was quiet but if you want to be around people you could just go the the pool or center.
Wonderful condo perfect for our family . Nice quiet community. Everyone was very nice and helpful. Easy access to beach and other amenities. Will definitely come back!
Gate48 has been an amazing host!!! The place was as per the pictures. We were delighted for 9 days and we will stay with them again
The apartment is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. We had a wonderful stay.
Location is PERFECT and the home is absolutely stunning w a breathtaking view!
A clean, modern and well maintained apartment in a small relaxed community. In the community itself there's a centre a short walk with a great little spot for breakfast and lunch, and a couple of pools in the immediate area. There's no nearby supermarket, and the resorts aren't walking distance, so I'd strongly recommend a car to make this an easy vacation
Great experience. Stayed for 12 days and had an amazing time. Super beautiful place. Host are great. We will return
Very nice place ... Top clean ! a lot of services for the price ! I'm looking forward to go back next time ! A+
Beautiful, comfortable, well-appointed space.
