I used to stay here years ago, and just returned to Vista del Mar (VDM) last week. It's the right kind of place for me -- simple, cute, relatively quiet, inexpensive, with a few amenities that add comfort. I'm not really oriented towards the all-inclusive resorts. VDM is away from the busier area of Akumal, and sits right on the... More

The Vista Del Mar Hotel is a great place if you are looking for clean, basic, beachfront accommodations. All the rooms open out to the beach/sea view. The staff is friendly and helpful. It is a good value and a good location. La Buena Vida restaurant, pool and dive shop are just a few steps down the beach. Off-street parking... More

We stayed in Condo B of Vista del Mar Norte (a couple of small six unit hotel/suites separate it from Vista del Mar). Unit B is a ground floor, three bedroom, three bathroom unit with a full kitchen. The kitchen is stocked with dishes, pots and pans, and silverware; even a few cleaning supplies. The unit is right on the... More

I do not want this place to ever change, If you go here pease respect the reef, be cautious not to disturb any coral or harass the wild life. Vista Del mar is unchanged as well ,same old hard beds and small rooms, nice beach chairs and thatched... More

Very well appointed, and in a perfect location on Half Moon Bay. The view was great, and the snorkeling right outside your door was good as well. One thing to note: although they state they have a pool, it is several hundred paces south of the condo complex, adjacent to La Buena Vida restaurant, more or less. It had the... More

Not on Akumal Bay but next door on Half Moon Bay, which is about 1 km north by road from Akumal. (you can walk there along the coast but it is rocky and you have to go way out on the point so it's faster to walk down the road.) We rented a two bedroom condo, and it was wonderful.... More

Great little property right on Half Moon Bay, and I mean right on! Very tranquil three day trip to Akumal, just what the little lady needed. Nice room with a balcony to enjoy the ocean views. Within walking and biking distances of the village and nearby bars and restaurants. Very reasonable prices for what you get. Highly recommend!

Hotel rooms are small, but so what, the view and breeze more than compensate for that. Also, closeness to Akumal beach and Yal Ku are pluses. You can easily walk or bike to both or to any of the restaurants in the area. Prices reasonable, staff very pleasant. Would stay there again.

Four adults vacationing at Vista Del Mar in Akumal over memorial day weekend in 2014. This place is really nice and I would stay there again. Easy check-in, friendly and helpful staff, free wi-fi in your condo. The wi-fi went down and once the staff was alerted they quickly addressed it and anything else you needed. The whole staff is...
