The unit itself was very clean and well-equipped, and the wifi worked very well. It was pretty much as described and a nice place to stay for a week. The Tao space was quiet and well-maintained; my wife went to morning yoga classes regularly and enjoyed them, and she also used the lap pool almost every morning. The pool water was a bit chilly but it was a relatively cool week. Fernando, the property manager, responded to our only request -- for a new bottle of drinking water and for the combination of the lockbox outside the unit's front door -- very promptly; overall the property seems very well-managed, and there is certainly a lot of security. We had a rental car which I strongly advise: there is a shuttle around the various properties in this very large complex, but you really need a car to get beyond the complex and explore the area. We enjoyed Akumal, the nearest (fairly small and quiet) beach town as well as other excursions, including a half-day kayaking in the Biosfera Sian Ka'an, which we'd recommend. Overall, an enjoyable stay at a very well-run property.
We found this lovely second floor condo to be all we really needed for the two of us. Everything we needed was there and Gate 48 vacations took care of anything we needed right away. We stayed for a month and did not rent a car as this would have cost another 1000 U S dollars. We made out fine using collectives and taxis. This is a great new community. We did not find any bothersome construction noise, just trucks coming and going. The Shuttle to the rest of the resort does require better hours as it is more limited than the main shuttle from the Sian Kaan to the rest of the resort. The bistro at the Tao Center was a nice highlight as meals were very good cheap and the beer cold with great service. Note that there is no shuttle on Sunday and the Bistro is also closed Sundays. Golf was very good. There are a good number of very nice people from the USA and Canada living here full time. They welcomed us and we have some great new friends. There is certainly no lack of great things to do here. The people and service was fantastic. We look forward to our next longer stay.
The condo is located in a very new development and it extremely cared for. We had a great stay that was made much better by the staff from Gate48 Vacations - property managers. Maria and Manuel answered all our questions, made certain we had everything we needed and were so easy and efficient to deal with.
Wow this place was perfect for us. It is modern, clean, has laundry in suite and dishwasher and wifi. It had all the comforts of home. A/c system is new and works well with individual controls in each room. The grounds and pools were amazing. The pools and beach there were great as well. This is a way better solution to an all inclusive!!! This is a great place to buy a condo or rent yearly. So clean and comfortable. Just like at home. The pool was a calm area and very serene even with our children and several other children there. It was never crowded and many people where there just to read a book and relax. Bathrooms at the pool were clean. Common bbq area near pool was used by many to make a steak or bbq chicken lunch. Many friendly people everywhere. On grounds security was very helpful. Completely safe place. Definitely rent a car!! We did and have no regrets! Would recommend this to anyone of any range. Concierge was very helpful. It was a perfect 2 weeks and we will return against and again.
Excelente!! ampliamente recomendable. Disfruta de la playa de Akumal (bahía príncipe), no tienes mucho que buscar en las otras.
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+
