My husband and I were looking for a quiet getaway for a week, with sun, sand, and the sound of the sea outside our door. Our expectations were met and exceeded at Vista del Mar. From our initial contacts with the booking staff (Heidi and Joanne) to Miguel and Tomas at the front desk to the helpful camaristas, the staff... More

We stayed in room 205 in the hotel and spent four days diving with Akumal Dive Adventures, enjoying the nearby food, and the snorkeling right off the hotel beach. The hotel is not the fanciest but everything is clean and every room has ocean views. We woke up every morning looking out at the sunrise on the Caribbean. The location... More

Clean, comfortable, peaceful, quiet with ocean, restaurants and other amenities nearby. We swam in the lagoon and went for long walks on the beach, played tennis, watched the sunrise and just enjoyed the laid back mood.

We stayed In Unit 3, a condo, and it was perfect for us! Daily maid service was a big boost, bringing the comfort of a hotel but without the strictures. Best of all, the baby turtles were hatching. An unforgettable experience. So much better than Cancun for those seeking a scenic place, away from crowds and gliterrati

Vista Del Mar We stayed in condo unit 3 for the month of February 2014. It is a two-bedroom 2nd floor unit. The layout was terrific. I would guess the square footage would be somewhere between 1000 to 1200 ft.² there was a large living room/bar/kitchen area. The balcony ran the width of the unit and the view of the... More

Heidi C, Guest Relations Manager at Vista del Mar Hotel, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. We always appreciate candid comments and productive suggestions so that we can continue to make improvements to Vista del Mar. We agree - the televisions are old. And we have begun the process of replacing all of them (that's over 30!) with flat-screen TV's. The 3 bedroom condominiums all now have new TV's. We are... More

We stayed here twice during a 2 week visit to MX. The second time because we wanted to go back to Akumal and we enjoyed our first stay at Vista del Mar. First visit was a room on the top floor. Great views of the ocean and half moon bay. We could see turtles and manta ray swimming in the... More

My wife and I happened upon this quaint hotel while exploring one of our favorite beach areas along the Riviera Maya -Akumal. We decided to stay two nights to continue exploring and snorkeling. The hotel is brightly colored and is associated with a great restaurant called the Buena Vida right next door (some of the best food we had on... More

Just steps from the sea in Akumal South. We stayed in room 303 of the hotel on the third floor. The view is stunning with a huge window in the lounge area, as long as you don't mind steps! We could spot turtles and manta rays from our room! Room basic but functional and maid did well with towel decorations... More

My wife and I stayed at the Vista Del Mar from November 17 to December 14, 2014, so we got to know the hotel and area quite well. This was our first trip to the Mexican Caribbean, after traveling to Puerto Vallarta & Punta Mita (Pacific side) the past several years. After returning home, we both agreed this was our... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and felt it was the perfect stay for our needs. Friendly staff, clean room with a coconut palm tree outside the shower window and balcony. The bed was soft and comfortable, the showers warm and the (2nd floor) balcony small but with a feeling of privacy. The hotel was located between the main Akumal... More
