Condo for the first time...Mi Casa Del Mar A4

After 13 or so all-inclusive trips we are taking the plunge and booked a condo from Nov 1-8th this year. We are staying at Mi Casa Del Mar Penthouse A4. Has anyone stayed in this unit? Any tips for condo vacationing in Akumal?

We stayed in A3 - July 2012.  Got a chance to go into A4 one day and It was truly beautiful.  A request from those below you - don't drag your chairs ;-].  We got a chance to help release some baby turtles that had hatched on the small beach just south of the condo and we did some snorkeling right out in front on some really calm days.  You will be in a perfect location right in between La Buena Vida and Lol Ha (Half Moon and Akumal Bays). 
 
We hit the Chedraui in Playa Aventuras for drinks snacks and breakfast.  Make sure to buy or take ziplocks for ANY open food.  Ants will appear in a condo like magic if you don't put open food in the fridge or zipped up tight.  We ate Lunch/Dinner at local restaurants or brought Natys chicken or Lol HA pizza back to the condo. 
 
Let me know if you have any questions about Mi Casa, we've stayed there twice.  This summer we are staying at a condo in Tankah - Casa de Ensueno.

We have not stayed in that condo before but we use Gessica at riviera maya groceries to stock our villa before we arrive... You can go to her site, pick your groceries and when you arrive, there they are... Grab a cerveza and hit the beach.. Done.. And she is fantastic..

I have stayed many times on HMB in a condo and loved it.  As an aside - I would NEVER venture into the waters in front of Mi Casa Del Mar.  In all my many many trips at all times of the year, I have never seen those waters calm.  it's ironshore in the front.  If you want to snorkel, walk to HMB or Akumal!

FinsUp is correct.  Unless you are a Very strong swimmer and excellent snorkeler AND the water is calm, I'd advise against it.  Mi Casa does have a little sand entry right in front of the condo.  This was in July and we had a few days when the ocean was glass.  We did get hit one day with an afternoon storm while we were out  and got knocked around a little trying to exit so the conditions can change also.

Just enjoy yourself! Akumal Bay and HMB are just a short walk away, go out and enjoy the day.
If you get homesick for your AI you can always go down and get a day pass..ha, ha!

I think the grocery shopping at the large Chedraui in PA is half the fun of staying in a condo or villa. And sitting on a private balcony or deck drinking coffee in the morning and adult beverages in the evening is not too bad either.

And your balconies and view from A4 are absolutely Stunning.  You will really enjoy the evenings and afternoons sitting out there and mornings watching the sun come up.

Hi We have stayed in A-3 twice and really loved the master bedroom that has a full ocean view.  I did get a chance to see A-4 and it looks lovely.  The care takers are just wonderful and will help you out with anything.  Say hello to Kitty Kitty the resident cat there.  We loved the location to walking to all the restaurants.  Had Breakfast and dinner in the condo with lunch out to cut down on the costs and it worked great.  Best to stop at grocery store in Puerto Adventuras to pick up major food supply.  You can buy food and staples in Akumal but very expensive.  House keeping that comes with the condo is great.  Make sure you tip when you leave.  Have a fun trip.

A lovely condo, and beautiful locations, but I do wish the staff there would quit feeding the raccoons.
