Before heading off to Akumal we used TA to help stear us in the right direction. Unfortunately, we did not find what we were looking for at Tequilaville. We timed our visit to coincide with their live music night and rib special (Wednesday). We stopped by earlier in the day and talked with the manager who told us to be... More

Dont get me wrong...let me first start off by saying the owner is a wonderful person. Nothing on him. Should he run a restaurant? sure why not. anyone can. Is his restaurant good? i highly disagree with the ratings here. Maybe my palette is too snobbish but i found his food at best mediocre...my burger tasted like a hot dog..my... More

We went for supper on a Wednesday night. Hubby had the Ribs (which are okay, but not fabulous) and I had the Coconut Shrimp (definitely fabulous!). We had 2 pails of "baby" beers and listed to Sister Hurricane for a couple of hours. They are GREAT entertainment, and Ken is lucky to have them. Nice to listen to Fleetwood Mac,... More

Heard the coconut shrimp was great but it was a bit too heavily breaded for us. Arrived at noon, but they didn't serve food until 1 pm. There were eight of us and we waited an hour for our food! Was overprice for what we got and VERY slow on the service. There are better places in Akumal.

Five of us headed over to Akumal Pueblo to try the famous Coconut Shrimp at Teqilaville. After our $10 bucket of beer with 10 small Sol beers (special that night), we dug into the mixed kebab grill, coconut shrimp, beef fajitas and chicken tacos. Each dish was great! We had a hoot taking each others' picture with the bucket o... More

Not real sure why it was rated so high. The seafood pasta was creamy, not what I was expecting. It was also overpriced. My wife had a hamburger and it was fine. We ate there twice, the 1st time I ate the ribs, and they were decent, but no big deal. We arrived at 7 and weren't able to get... More

Ken, the owner will take good care of you. We walked over from snorkeling with the turtles. Had buckets of beer, great burgers and ribs plus they have fun games at the bar to entertain everyone! Very clean, great staff, and great prices.

this was our third visit to the Akumal area and we finally got around to visiting Akumal Pueblo and Tequillaville! Was a hot walk from Akumal Playa but well worth it. A very unassuming place, but so welcoming. Comfortable and cool after a long walk and ice cold beer and a margarita just what the doctor ordered! Had the burger... More
