We extended our stay in San Cristobal and stayed 10 days at the hostel. The hosts Erick and Cinzia are very friendly, helpful and wonderful people. They know so much about the city and are eager to help you make your stay enjoyable. We had the private room that opens out to the roof terrace. It was great in the morning when the sun came out and you could lie in the hammock and read. Erick makes his own bread which is delicious and his breakfasts are very hearty. Loved the dog, Chandra.
Hotel manager is a great person. Very friendly and helpful. Cooks up a mean breakfast. Hostel is quaint and intimate, family atmosphere. What more could you ask for.
Our stay at Akumals was ok, but didnt really live up to the 92% reviews. We had a private room but there were no windows so it quickly developed a stange smell and was freezing cold. The water went off daily and hot water ran out quickly. The breakfasts was good but if your an earlier riser and want breakfast before about 9am you will have to eat out because the kitchen is closed until 10am and the provided breakfast wont be ready until past 9am. The dog barked v.loud at every guest arrival.
Akumal is not a tipical hostel, it's a smaller colourful chilled out place where friendly people and a dog awaits you. Eric and Cinzia are running it with dedication and love, chilled atmosphere, creative breakfasts (home made bread), non-stop delicious caffe, great assistance, interesting graffitis, Erics photos and posters. Suite up is very bright, feels like an apartment, good mattres, clean private bathroom. We felt like at home in a day and stay longer than expected, aprociate hospitality!
