Villa Arrecife and Akumal
'Villa Arrecife' is located a mere 5 minutes north of the town of Akumal. This quaint town is a ecologically protected area and has much to offer travellers of all ages! If you are looking for great seafood and margaritas, 'Cueva del Pescador is your best bet, a high-end restaurant, Lol-Ha located on Akumal Bay beach is superb! The adjoining beach bar is perfect for sipping on a cerveza and watching the ocean, and you cannot finish a day at the beach without visiting the ice cream store! La Buena Vida is a beach bar and restaurant located on Half Moon Bay beach ~ where during the day you can snorkel and watch sea turtles in their natural habitat!
The beaches of Akumal are lined with talc-like sand and Akumal Bay is very shallow (perfect for younger travellers). The warm waters of the Caribbean Sea meet with the fresh waters from the land in Yalku Lagoon ~ an excellent spot for snorkeling and seeing spectacular displays of fish and coral.
Akumal also has small vendors and stores which sell souvenirs, jewelery and groceries.
Villa Arrecife and Tourist Attractions
We understand if you want to just soak up the warm Caribbean rays and enjoy the local beaches as well as beautiful 'Villa Arrecife' itself, however if you want to truly experience the Riviera Maya and see all it has to offer, you will not be disappointed!
There are a wide variety of activities to suit all tastes! Amongst the Riviera Maya family attractions you will find snorkeling, dolphins, sea lions, exotic birds, monkeys of many species, and rich flora. Xel-Ha, Xcaret, Aktun Chen, Aktun Chi, Xplor, Dolphinarius, Tres Rios Ecopark, and Crococun Crocodile Park and Regional Zoo are just a few of the larger attractions that can be found in the Riviera, but there are an abundance of smaller cenotes, botanical gardens, and an aviary located in Playacar, that are equally as fantastic! For the more adventurous there is even skydiving! Golfers can spend time at Playacar, horseback riding at 'Rancho Bonita Loma', and deep sea fishing can also be found in this aquatic paradise!

About Tamara Stimpson
We are a family of 4 who live in Canada but love to vacation in the Mayan Riviera. We had so many fun-filled family vacations in this area year-after-year that we decided to purchase some property and build a vacation home!
Tamara Stimpson purchased this villa in 2011
Why Tamara Stimpson chose Akumal
We love Grand Sirenis resort and wanted to build somewhere that is safe, where you can get to tourist attractions, points of interest and great beaches...purchasing property in the residential area of this resort we know and love, and building here just seemed right!
What makes this villa unique
Our favourite spot in the entire villa is the rooftop terrace - during the day you laze in a hammock under the palapa and enjoy great ocean views and breezes, and the night sky is breathtaking! We often see shooting stars!!
Guestbook comments from the owner
Just got home from Mexico last night. Our stay at the villa was absolutely amazing. Every one was very impressed with open layout, the pool and all of the balconies were a favorite as well.
We made use of the kitchen every day and it had everything we needed to prepare our meals.
We all agreed that we would stay at Villa Arrecife again!
Thank you for the smooth booking and transaction process!
