I just returned from a one-week vacation at the Vista Del Mar condos in North Akumal. We travelled as a group of 12, rented our own van at the airport and stayed in two three-bedroom condo units. There were four children under the age of six in our group. Travel accommodations is all about expectations and knowing what you are... More

Vista del Mar was just what we wanted. Peaceful, clean, private and on the beach. We previously stayed in Akumal Bay but it has become more crowded than we like. No need to get up early to claim a beach chair here! We woke up to watch the beautiful sunrise and fell asleep to the sound of the waves. Plenty... More

what a great find! This place has the perfect location, it is clean and quiet, it has air conditioning and plenty of hot water, and it is right next door to a really good restaurant that is also right on the water. We sit on our balcony and the waves are about 40 yards away. We are on Half Moon... More

Our previous hotel was a jungle resort with large bungalow, so the Del Sol (formerly Vista Del Mar) room looked skimpy at first. It was quite serviceable with a nice balcony with a couple of chairs, table, and a hammock. It was too small to use all of those at once. Ceiling fan or refrigerator provided cooling. A small refrigerator... More

This was our 6th stay here and just as good as in the past, of course they have a new look (love it) and name Del Sol. Alfredo at the front desk was a great help with all our needs. The paint job really makes the place seem more like the area. They have also been updating their bikes which... More

We stayed at Vista del Mar in late January, and it was wonderful. I can't praise it highly enough. Fantastic value for money. When we first booked, they made a slight error in our favour in the rates, which they were kind enough to honour when I pointed it out. That engendered a wholly positive feeling from the outset which... More

We picked Vista Del Mar for the location on the beautiful Half Moon Bay and the access to "walk- in" snorkeling. The ocean access was terrible and so was the snorkeling. Too much floating sea weed and by the end of the week the sea weed was piled up on the shore so high I could not "climb" over it... More

For the Yucatan peninsula Akumal is a small resort - in the centre of the resort part of town (the pueblo is over the bridge on the other side of the highway) there are a couple of small grocery stores, some restaurants, some tourist shops- one hotel right on a beautiful sandy beach on a bay with a resident population...

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.
