About Greg Paul
I'm a screenwriter and musician who loves the beach and loves to travel.
Greg Paul purchased this Condo in 2018
Why Greg Paul chose Akumal
I looked for several years for the right combination of sand, crystal clear water and proximity to lots of fun stuff to do.
What makes this Condo unique
It's the best of all worlds to have the amenities of a world class resort and yet not have to do the all inclusive thing if you dont want to.

Home Away From Home
A clean, comfy, safe place to stay. The owners are very friendly, and are there to help you. The king bed is comfortable, and the shower is great! The patio is spacious with a nice view to the ocean. The beach is full of soft white sand, and the best part is that it is not packed like in Akumal. Adventures Akumal is our new destination from now on!
Thanks so much for the kind words. It was our pleasure to host you. We love sharing our little piece of paradise with nice people like you.
Terrific spot right on the beach!
We had a great time in this apartment with its spacious patio and beautiful views of the beach. The sand is just steps away, as well as a very nice pool. The apartment had everything we needed, including beach towels and a toaster and coffee maker so that we could have breakfast on the patio. Also a big, very comfortable bed. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. All in all a wonderful stay!
This Place is AWESOME. Saw Turtle lay her eggs!
Greg's place is right on the beach and said beach is amazingly beautiful and he is a great host. The tiled terrace has lovely tropical plants and a breath taking view of the sea. We loved having our morning coffee out there and relaxing in the hammock or lounge chair. The pool is right there too if you prefer that but there was rarely anyone using it since most come to the beach for the ocean.
The bed was super comfy and the place was very clean. Greg provided beach towels of course but we didn't expect that he also had beach bags, hats and snorkel gear for our use as well, which was great because I forgot a beach bag. The reef is very close and is about a 7 minute swim straight out so you don't have to take a boat or go in a group to go snorkeling. And the water is calm and clear. We saw rays and all manor of fish.
The Oasis resort is right next door, actually Gregs condo is one of a few private condos within the resort so it is the best of both worlds. As Gregs guest we could opted to pay to eat at one of the 7 restaurants at the resorts for a reasonable price which included as many drinks as we wanted and even a show afterwards in the theatre which was a nice surprise. We tried the French restaurant and it was great and the service terrific.
There is a great little beach bar a two minute walk down the sandy beach and a beach side massage tent a few minutes further. Heaven.
But the best part of out trip, was that we were fortunate to see a sea turtle come up onto the shore in the middle of the night and lay her eggs. It was one of the reasons we picked this time of year and this beach because it has a hatchery and volunteers that patrol the beach at night who will let you know if a nesting is happening as long as you are respectful and quiet and don't use any white flashlights that could disturb the turtle. They have special red ones. We really had a magical tine and will certainly come back for a longer stay during the winter. Thanks Greg for all the little extra touches.
Thanks. I'm so glad you had a great time. I love sharing my little slice of paradise with people. Safe travels and come back soon.
Be sure to walk a few minutes south down the beach to a fun Beach Bar Called the Beached Bikini and a few minutes after that is a massage ten on the beach. 50 USD. Fishing boats to charter right out front. 180usd
Lots of Great Cenotes nearby, Dos Ochos is a fun one. Eco water parks , Xel-Ha, Xplor and Xcaret are very fun too. Akumal Beach where the Famous turtles are is 5 minutes north by car or taxi. Lots of Bars and Restaurants there too. 5 minutes South there is a cute little town Chemuyil, with 3 good restaurants. Tulum and its famous Ruins are 15 minutes south. Playa Del Carmen Night life and shopping is 30 min north.
You don't have to have a rental car but it is helpful if you want to explore the area. There are taxis right here at the Hotel or you can hop on a Collectivo for 20 pesos to Akumal, 35 pesos to Tulum or 40 to Playa Del Carmen.
