Each bedroom also has a queen sized futon making great extra sleeping space for kids, families, or adults sharing. All bedrooms have AC, safety boxes, and High Speed internet ethernet ports. There is also Wi-Fi throughout the house if your computer is wireless enabled. Valhalla is also one of the only houses in Akumal that is wheelchair friendly with one of the two downstairs bedrooms designed with wider door frames and shower space to cater for disabled needs.
The communal areas are incredibly spacious with loads of indoor and outdoor dining and living space and a large fully equipped kitchen. There are 2 lounge areas, the upstairs area sporting a 42" flat screen Satellite TV with DVD and a stereo system with iPod dock, USB port and CD player to play any MP3 device.

Relax by the great fresh water infinity edge pool which has a shallow end for the kids to play in while the adults can sip cocktails on the swim up stools next to the ocean side palapa. Relax and catch some rays on one of the may sunbeds by the pool or on the sand beach area. A few steps from here is the warm Caribbean Sea where you can snorkel, swim, or cruise the bay in one of the 2 kayaks provided by the house. We have 11 lifejackets in various sizes for your use. If you feel like this is all a bit much for you, then climb into one of the hammocks under the ocean side palapa and rock yourself to sleep to the sound of the water gently lapping at the shore. After a hard day of enjoying the best of the Caribbean lifestyle, make your way up to the big roof terrace and enjoy a margarita watching the sun go down and the millions of stars appear. if you are an early bird, this is a particularly spectacular place to watch the sun rise over the ocean.
In addition to all of these great features, Valhalla offers a complimentary arrival night mexican dinner (please advise us of any food allergies or special requirements when making your booking) if you stay for 7 nights or more. Please check with the property manager upon arrival for details.
Valhalla really has thought of everything to cater not only for big family vacations, but also as a venue for weddings, celebrations, gatherings, courses or workshops and reunions with friends.
We stayed here in January of 2011 and we still talk about it today. It is a great place in a great location. We couldn't have asked for a better place. The staff were excellent. The nearby restaurants were great.
We loved our stay at Villa Valhalla. The house was large and comfortable. Six master suites, all with ocean views allowed everyone the same stay. The pool was perfect. We cooked in the kitchen as well as having two meals catered in by Chef Daveed. His meals were fantastic and authentic. Akumal is away from the crowds of Playa del Carman, but we didn't want for anything.
We found Villa Valhalla through Andrew, a rental agent at Sol Maya Rentals. It was our first time to Akumal and no one had a clue what to expect! It was absolutely PERFECT for our group. Complete Paradise. Highly recommended. The house was plenty big for our group (we rented 3 bedrooms at Balam Ek next door too!). In Villa Valhalla, there are 6 king bedrooms of equal size and each bedroom has it's own bathroom. There is a half bath as well in the main living area. The living space and bedrooms are bigger than the pictures let on, especially the kitchen area.
There are kayaks that you can use to kayak right off from the house and a few of us brought our own snorkels to use as well. You can also rent snorkel gear at the Akumal Dive shop - A short walk away. We snorkeled from the Akumal beach and saw giant turtles! The house is also a VERY short walk to La Buena Vita to have beers on the beach and enjoy some fish tacos.
The house was clean. Pool was wonderful. Staff was courteous. No complaints. Cannot wait to return.
We also used Paradise Transportation - Another recommendation from Andrew - To transport our large group (4 trips to/from the airport...It's a 60+minute drive). They were SO accommodating and we arranged everything prior to our arrival to make traveling with the large group so easy. Car not necessary if you only plan on hanging around Akumal. Thanks to Andrew L @ Sol Maya Rentals and everyone at Villa Valhalla!
We have just returned from a fabulous stay at Villa de Valhalla in Akumal. It was everything promised, very clean, beatutiful oceanfront views, and super wheelchair accessible. Just walking distance from a great snorkeling area where you get to swim with the turtles. We felt very safe in Akumal and will definitly be back again.
