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...

Perfect spot for what we wanted/needed! You could not get any closed to the water. Studio was spacious, huge bathroom and tub! Awesome views. TV only got maybe 5 stations, but, hey, that is not why we were there! We will return, no question. All this for about $110/night, wow

Recently spent a week in one of the lower level units that is a stones throw from the water. We were there with about 20 family members for a wedding. The units are spacious and had air conditioning in each room. It was great to have the option to prepare simple meals at home rather going to the buffet. This... More

We were supposed to be on vacation February recess and got stranded in New York City during the Valentines Day Snow Storm. I called Heidi crying as we drove home in a rental car because US Air couldn't fly us home. To our really great surprise she offered us a credit voucher for a future stay. We never dreamed they...

My husband and I just returned from a 6-night stay at Vista del Mar hotel. I previously stayed on Half Moon Bay in one of the condos, but this time, we picked the hotel as the least expensive option during the busy spring break season. We requested top floor and got #305, the standard queen room. We arrived around 1... More
