We were looking for a reasonably priced place to stay in the Akumal area and ended up here. It is located half way between the main beach on Akumal bay and the lagoon at Yal Ku, both of which were places we enjoy, and, at 1k. distance for each, both of which were easily walkable from the hotel. The rooms... More

By far one of the best deals I've ever lucked into. The accommodations were twice again as nice as the pics online and the service was outstanding. The best part was the quiet town. Very relaxing with great food within walking distance. We will definitely be back.

Stayed in a ground floor 2 bedroom condo in 2010 with whole family. There was plenty of room for 4 adults and a child. The living room felt like it was right on the beach. My favorite place was either in the bay snorkeling or in the hammock on the patio. The staff was the greatest, they couldn't be more... More

Not a fancy hotel, but is right on the beach away from the center of town, so it's quiet, and feels like your own place - patio right on the beach Staff is helpful and friendly Fridge and coffee maker in the room -

We spent a warm and sunny week in January 2014 at the Vista del Mar for the first time. For the previous eight years we stayed at the Akumal Beach Resort (now has a new name) but they restored the entire complex, added a fourth floor and up-scaled the property along with the price. Vista del Mar was awesome, 20... More

Had a wonderful week at Vista Del Mar third week of January. The hotel and rooms have been painted. Hotel has been painted bright new colors. Loved the oversize bean bags to lay on in the sun. We were in room 103 on the first level. It was great each morning to get up and be able to walk right... More

We spent five nights in a hotel room here in January 2015 and thoroughly enjoyed the Vista del Mar. Loved the location out of the hubbub of Akumal, Much quieter but still an easy walk into the center. Nice, uncrowded beach, wonderful sunrises and gentle surf but the ground was rocky, Pretty good snorkeling nearby too. Room was a bit... More

I had no interest in spending my mexican vacation in an all inclusive resort and I just wanted to find something that was simple but perfect and Vista del Mar was exactly the way we wanted to go. The hotel is located in lovely Akumal - a town between playa del carmen and Tulum. It's a great beach town with... More

My family spent Thanksgiving week at Vista del Mar, in an upper level condo unit with a balcony and lovely view of the beach. We enjoyed being a bit off the beaten path in this outpost of Akumal consisting solely of Vista del Mar, with its small hotel and several condos; a tiny corner grocery store; La Buena Vida, a...
