Vista del Mar Hotel in Akumal was the best ever get away for us after 7 feet of snow in Boston this winter! Well appointed condo on third floor made it perfect to relax, enjoy the view of Half Moon Bay, make breakfast in AM and pina coladas in PM and enjoy complete privacy. Our two room condo was very...

This hotel is well placed for access to Akumal and Yal Ku. If you want a home base for snorkelling and exploration adventures check in here! Rent a bike from the fron desk for $40 US/ week and explore Akumal, Akumal pueblo and Yal Ku lagoon. Ten minutes walking or two minutes on your bike gets you into Akumal for... More

If you like diving this is the place to go. Dive shop is only 100 yards from the hotel and water is only 20 yards from hotel. Very clean with good water supply in a cooler. Tiki bar with food next door. Snorkeling in a beautiful lagoon just down the street.

We stayed on the ground floor. We enjoyed the location, away from the chaos. We brought our coffee and enjoyed fresh cups on the beach each morning. They provide a full 12c maker and the basket filters. The bed was firmer than I prefer but that simply made napping on a beanbag under a palapa that much better! (No towel... More

The Vista del Mar is simple, clean, safe, and relaxing. We spent a week here first of March. We spent very little time in our rooms choosing to ride bikes, explore, sit on the beach and snorkel everyday. Yes, there is a sea weed issue, it comes from Brazil and we did not notice an odor. The restaurants were all... More

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
