We want our guests to feel at home in Casa Gatos, so we combine an intimate garden setting with amiable and unobtrusive hospitality to create a relaxing and reaffirming experience, a welcome respite from the world of “getting and spending”. Sheltered inside a Mayan Style limestone wall, the lush tropical garden merges into a broad inner courtyard filled with flowering plants, a pleasant place for morning coffee or afternoon cocktails, accompanied by the melodic patter of water trickling down the natural stone fountain. SUITE 103 has two large bedrooms, with decor highlighted by Chinese and Japanese Woodblock and Silk Screen Prints, and handicrafts from Mexico and the Orient. The front bedroom opens onto a palapa (thatch) shaded balcony overlooking the garden.

Sheltered inside a Mayan Style limestone wall, the lush tropical garden merges into a broad inner courtyard filled with flowering plants, a pleasant place for morning coffee or afternoon cocktails, accompanied by the melodic patter of water trickling down the natural stone fountain. SUITE 103 has two large bedrooms, with decor highlighted by Chinese and Japanese Woodblock and Silk Screen Prints, and handicrafts from Mexico and the Orient. The front bedroom opens onto a palapa (thatch) shaded balcony overlooking the garden. Each bedroom has independent access to the bathroom. The kitchen/dining area is lit by double windows and an etched glass window from a nineteenth century pub. The front bedroom has a queen bed and the rear bedroom has a king bed and a futon that can open into a double bed. All rooms are air conditioned and have ceiling fans. Suitable for four to five guests. There is nothing more spectacular than sitting on the roof terrace as the sun rises over the open sea or sets over North Akumal as the night sky fills with countless stars and galaxies. There's also just sunning or reading in the shade, while enjoying the expansive view in every direction over miles of jungle, sea and shore. The house is conveniently located in the heart of the residential neighborhood of North Akumal. The gated entrance opens onto a quiet lane, alongside a small woodland park, a buffer to the traffic of the beach road. A short walk of a few hundred yards takes you to Yalku Lagoon or the beach on Half Moon Bay. Que Onda Restaurant is next door, with two more restaurants on Half Moon Bay. Akumal Bay, its beach and the commercial center with seven more restaurants lie a mile down the shore road. We have arranged a one-third discount on entry to Yalku for all our guests. Reservations of five days or more also include a day pass to Yalku and free access to the CEA entrance and facilities on Akumal Beach, which provides lockers, bathrooms and showers, and a private outside lounging area.

About the neighbourhood
What sets Akumal apart from the typical beach-and bar tropical tourist destinations are the variety of activities and sights within a day’s radius: hundreds of cenotes, numerous bays and nature parks, deep water reefs; spectacular ruins of such ancient Maya cities as Tulum, Coba, Chichen Itza, Ek Balam; the Spanish Colonial city of Valladolid, quaint Yucatecan pueblos and haciendas; the tourist meccas, Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum. It began as a diver's resort and as a base for travelers interested in the history and culture of the Maya people and still is.
Getting around
There are taxis available in Akumal and public vans run every few minutes on the highway between Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Bicycles or golf carts can be rented to get around within Akumal. Tours to major attractions can be arranged.
