“Vista Del mar - Amazing”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Stayed here with wife at the end of February 2012. We had a hotel room with a queen size bed. Checked in around 7pm after snorkeling at Yal-Ku (amazing must do). La Buena Vida restaurant had live Karaoke and beach dancing til late.

Woke up to no water pressure but was quickly fixed and we were on our way yo Xel-Ha.

Room was clean and cozy. No frills price at a great location. Worth it.

My husband and I booked our flights and hotel (in Playa del Carmen) for our honeymoon in May 2009. Swine flu happened. We cancelled. Several weeks before our wedding and still undecided on where to honeymoon (we were so looking forward to the Riviera Maya) we threw caution to the wind and rebooked our flight to Cancun. It was so sadly evident how hard the Riviera Maya was hit with the loss of tourism due to the Swine Flu (we came to learn the Yucatan had very few cases). We decided to not book any hotel in advance and live each day spontaneously (so glad we did this). We pulled into Akumal and stopped at the Information booth.
Bacilio was incredibly helpful giving us a full list of hotels and condos available. After checking out several we went to Vista del Mar. We were first shown the hotel rooms (cute but a bit small for what we were looking for). Next the ground floor condo....oh my....it was exactly what we wanted. Spacious, airy, light, clean, Mexican charm and best of all two double sliders with views to die for, your own palapas and mere steps to the blue Caribbean. We booked in for several nights and reveled in the morning sunrises, snorkeling and swimming with the turtles. From there we decided to go to Tulum for a bit. Checking out many oceanfront hotels nothing came close to what we had in Akumal. Rooms were musty, views not nearly as wonderful and much more pricey. So at the end of the day we went back to Vista del Mar and checked in for five more days. Again, we decided now to head north to Puerto Morales....same story...back to Vista del Mar. Lupe and Bacilio (heading reception) were very amused by us. We literally could not stay away. Still. Since our honeymoon we've returned four times staying for weeks at a time. I cannot say enough about Vista del Mar. If you're looking for a schmancy all inclusive resort then this most definitely is not for you. If you're looking for a clean and charming oceanfront condo, privacy, uncrowded beaches, laid back atmosphere (did I mention the wonderful maids come in daily and even do dishes), and the friendliest staff then you will love Vista del Mar.

Stayed at Vista del Mar 2 nights, February 18 and 19, 2012. Rooms are reasonably priced. Good views of Half Moon Bay from room. Bring your own coffee for coffee maker. Rooms are not large, but adequate, somewhat dated - kind of fit the character of Akumal in general. Pretty good walk back into Akumal to access Akumal Bay, most restaurants and beach bar, except for La Buena Vita which is right next door. Good location if you want to drive to Coba or Tulum in time to beat the tour buses. Akumal is pretty low key, a good place to go if you want to just relax and enjoy the scenery.

Room Tip: If you have trouble climbing stairs, get a room on ground level.

Removed by a short walk from the comparably crowded Akumal bay Beach, this location was very nice!
Cleaned daily and stocked well. Wireless was nice for staying in touch for free and researching local areas to visit!

Sandy beaches out of your doorstep within walking distnace of the local lagoon (overpriced snorkling but very nice), Akumal beach (sand/sun/turtles/fish/snorkling), taxis, collectivos and several resturants including Buena Vida with a small pool that kids/familys primarily occupy.

Room Tip: If you want sand out of your doorstep - choose a ground floor condo! :)

We're just back from a week in a couple of the VDM condos. Our two families had #4 and #3. The condos and staff were great. We're not all-inclusive resort types and the setting and pace were perfect for us. Our kids, ages 5-8, loved bouncing around the small pool while the grownups took turns snorkeling and laying around the hammocks and cabana chairs. Great proximity to Buena Vida restaurant/bar. Small tiendas had staples for us to cook and drink. When we needed more it wasn't a bad walk into town.
