There aren't a lot of reasonably priced options in Akumal, so beggars can't be choosers. But we spent 10 days exploring the Riveria Maya and I can honestly say that this room was the most expensive (about $90) and least desirable place we stayed. Pros: our patio did look out on the beach and we could watch/hear the waves at... More

Had never been in this part of Mexico before, drove in at 10pm, office closed. We were a little apprehensive, a bit dark and unsure of safety. A person near the door, went and found the manager and within 5 mn we were checked in and concern for safety disappeared. For the price and location these were great rooms. We... More

My boyfriend and I spent 4 nights in the Vista Del Mar. Akumal is lovely and so is the hotel. We loved the view from room #205 and wish we would have stayed longer. We especially appreciated the 2 Ocean Dives we went on with Akumal Dive Adventures. Jose is a excellent Dive Master he is some how at the... More

Vista del Mar is the perfect blend between economy condos and luxury beach privacy. We rented a 3 bedroom/3 bath condo on the top floor and couldn't have asked for more. The staff was extremely friendly and helped us with needs big and small. Very fresh and clean, maid service daily, our own kitchen with ample cookware, fresh jugs of... More

My husband and I had such a great time in Akumal during a snorkeling tour few years ago, that I thought I'd surprise him with a quick 3 night getaway this past weekend. We had a wonderful time and found that Vista del Mar fit all our needs quite well. I'm giving VDM a 4 rating based on its 3... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Vista del Mar Hotel and wished we had stayed longer! This was our first visit to Akumal and we were pleasantly suprised. We were warmly welcomed by staff when we arrived. Our second floor room was small but cheerful, and we had everything we needed with a TV, coffee maker, mini-fridge, drinking water, and... More

This was an absolutely perfect place to relax on the beach with family, and an excellent value for a small group. 7 of us (4 adults, 3 kids) were in a ground floor 3 bedroom condo. Each bedroom had its own bathroom, and there was a safe in one of the rooms. The kitchen was well equipped with a stove,... More

They were full during Christmas week but you wouldn't know it. Staff went overboard to be helpful. We felt safe and secure and well looked after. That said we didn't need much in the way of services. VdM is everything you want from a hotel on the beach. All rooms overlook ocean. We had a third floor and it was... More

This was my first visit to Mexico, Akumal looked like a nice place to call home base while we visited ruins. I stayed in a 2 bedroom condo on the second floor. It was nice and spacious, large balcony, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, and living room. More than enough room for the 2 of us. It was nice and... More

This was our second stay at the Vista Del Mar. The second time around we were not quite as happy as the first time. The room seemed a lot smaller than we had remembered it. Although it was clean, there was a vague smell of sewerage in the evenings and sometimes in the morning. There is no non-smoking policy (probably... More
