Great place

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place...roomy, comfortable, well-appointed with gorgeous views off the balcony and living room/kitchen. We stayed in a three bedroom unit with two other couples and it was great to have a separate full bath with each bedroom. It was actually very quiet and the beach in front was beautiful, sandy and not overly-populated though the oceon floor, itself, is very rocky. It was fine for snorkeling and kayaking but Akumal Bay offers a more sandy beach for swimming. Conveniently located near a very good restaurant (La Buena Vida) where we spent a lot of time and all the meals were good. It is also an easy walk to Akumal Bay and the Yal Ku Lagoon. The staff arranged van transportation for our group so we could get to Coba and Tulum to see ruins as we didn't have a car. They were all very accommodating and pleasant. We loved our time there!

Group 3 couples and one individual

  • 5 of 5

Our group felt the accommodations could not have been better. Welcome staff greeted us and took luggage to our condo and room. Staff came daily to clean it. Our view of the ocean and the beach was excellent from our third floor apartment and first floor room

The wi-fi was excellent. No complaints at all.

A wonderful month at Vista del Mar

  • 5 of 5

I was fortunate to spend the month of February in a beautiful 3 bedroom/3 bath unit at Vista del Mar, with different groups of friends dropping in to stay a few days. I couldn't be more pleased with the unit, which was on the 4th floor (the 4 flights of stairs really aren't so bad!). The view was incredible!! The staff at Vista del Mar were very professional and friendly, from the maids to the guys in the main office. We had a problem with the air conditioner, and it was fixed the same day. They offered helpful suggestions of things to do and also arranged transportation. The kitchen had everything we wanted including coffee maker, microwave, toaster, and blender. The only possible improvement: the TV only got HBO stations, and, because I was there for a long time, it would have been nice to get a news station for those rare time when I wanted to check in with the wider world.

Akumal is a great place to visit on the Yucatan - the beaches are great and it provides a much more intimate atmosphere than either Playa or Tulum. We liked all the restaurants, specially the fresh fish at Cueva del Pescador and Lol Ha for breakfast. What a pleasure to walk down the beach to La Buena Vida for drinks and dinner when we were tired of cooking. There is a small grocery in Akumal, and there is a huge supermarket (Chederai) about 5 miles north in Puerto Aventuras and also one in Tulum.

The beach in front of our unit was rocky so reef shoes were helpful. The beach in the center of Akumal is sandy but is also more crowded. The snorkeling at both places was good. We saw turtles, eagle rays, squid and some fish. All of my guests liked the snorkeling park of Yal Ku which is just down the road from Vista del Mar. There is a turtle sanctuary down the road from Chemuyil (about 5 miles south) that has great sandy beaches, changing rooms and a cenote on the property. Picnic lunches are allowed at the beach but not at the cenote. A small donation is required at the entrance. Highly recommended.

We rented a car at the airport in Cancun, but visitors should be aware that 3rd party liability insurance is required in Mexico and it greatly increases the cost of the car (my price tripled from what was quoted!). For a short stay a car isn't necessary - you can walk or ride a bike to any place in Akumal. However, a car allows you to visit interesting ruins at Coba, Tulum and Muyil.

Best vacation ever - I highly recommend Akumal and Vista del Mar properties.

Ocean Access was poor at best

  • 3 of 5

We just got home last night. We stayed in unit #D in the north building of Vista Del Mar 3bed/3bath. This Unit is on the second floor which is no problem with the stairs (no elevator), but it would have been a hike if we were on the 3rd or 4th floor (bad knees). The unit was just about equal with the tree line, the trees do NOT obstruct the view-- it is still spectacular !! The condo needs updating and is in major dis-repair. Tile floors and counters are cracked, chipped and stained. The air conditioner in the main bedroom stops freq. for no reason and makes a terrible noise all night long. The shower has mold that probably can't be cleaned. But, the floor plan is great (especially for a large family or group). It has a huge balcony which we used a lot. The daily cleaning is a big plus and the staff was great.

Here is the big reason we only gave it three stars. The ocean access is terrible. By the end of the week the sea weed was piled so high at the shore line I could not "climb" over it. There is no one cleaning or raking it out of the way--ever. We asked about it and they said it is part of the eco system and it would hurt the eco system to remove it. I am not buying that answer. There was so much sea weed on shore it backed up into the ocean and the surface of the water was covered with floating sea weed for about 50 yards. Not to mentioned the huge rocks, which we were prepared for, but even our beach shoes did not help. And the snorkeling was terrible ! The main reason we picked this location was the snorkeling and we were very disappointed. Even if you could get into the ocean it was rough, rocky and nothing to see. We tried snorkeling one morning from Akumal Bay but there were so many people we did not even get into the water. We sat on the beach and counted 150 people in a small area of the bay. Not for me ! Over-all we liked the restaurants, the food was always good and we liked the idea that you could walk just about every where. I am sorry to say we will not go back.

Be careful about renting a car at the Cancun airport. We booked thr. Orbitz for about $150 (mid size), but when we got to Hertz they would not horror that price and told us it would be $300 and their insurance was mandatory to purchase thr. them. Since we had already purchased car insurance thr. Orbitz, they were going to hold $1700 on our credit card. We left Hertz and walked next door to Avis. But I would not rent a car, take a taxi and rent a bike in Akumal.

Perfect spot to relax!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at Vista Del Mar. We rarely visit a place twice, but we loved this whole set up so much that we wanted to do it again, and we were so happy we did. The condo is super clean and includes large comfortable bedrooms, as well as great common space. The ground floor unit we stayed in is perfect for having young kids play in the sand while the adults relax on the patio or in hammocks. The daily maid service really makes you feel like your on vacation. Oh, and did I mention falling asleep to the sound of the ocean just yards from the back door? Perfection!

Exceptional value!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent five blissful days in Akumal the week before Christmas. We were traveling with our two adult children and the three bedroom unit worked perfectly. The units were spacious and clean and the balcony was a perfect place to watch the sunrise. Vista del Mar is in a great location -- close to restaurants and prime snorkeling spots. My only suggestion would be to add more lounge chairs in front of the property. Also, guests should be aware that there is not an elevator.
