We just went to Sin Duda Villas last week. My husband and I stayed here for 7 days and had an amazing time. It was perfect from the moment of arrival. We started the trip flying into Cancun and staying one night in Akumal for our first night arriving so we could wake up early the next morning and hit... More

I've spent years traveling and this is one of my favorite places I've ever been. The rooms are really nice. The hosts are great people. And the reef and the fish are world class. It's isolated and peaceful and feels just a little wild. A really nice place.

We spent around 10 days at Sin Duda and it proved the perfect chilled out location. Lesley and Dave are wonderful hosts and provide great food, strong margaritas(!), entertaining stories and plenty of useful advice on the local area. The early evening happy hour was a lovely way of meeting the other guests (and filling up on Lesley's excellent homemade... More

Traveling the yucatan with my wife and two kids (16 and 9). We were collectively looking for a place where we could snorkel, fish, kayak, and relax far from the tourist crowds. Sin Duda fit the bill perfectly. Booking with Leslie and Dave was super simple with all emails returned within a few hours and payment was processed via paypal.... More

Sin Duda is one of those places that you don't want other people to know about... it's so lovely that I have avoided writing this review so I can selfishly keep it for myself and my family. But, alas, Lesley and Dave, the proprietors, are so hospitable and the hotel's location and it's services are so outstanding that I find... More

Exceeded all expectations! Nice to find a place that is everything as advertised but in reality more! Not for everyone due to the remote location but if you want to get away and feel like you are really part of the Caribbean ocean and the local culture and avoid the cookie cutter tourist traps this is the place. Clean place,... More

There is no better place to relax and rejuvenate than Sin Duda Villas. I always leave feeling younger and stress free. Not sure if it's the wonderful views of the Caribbean Sea from the chaise lounges under the palapas, world class snorkeling steps away from your room, the delicious margaritas, or the welcoming and care from owners Lesley and Dave,...

We loved it at Sin Duda!! The perfect place to chill and relax. Leslie and Dave are wonderful hosts. We felt very welcome. The get togethers in the evening were fun, and a great way to meet the other guests. A perfect getaway if you want to get away from it all.

I just returned from my yearly stay at Sin Duda Villa. I have been returning to Sin Duda for 9 years. I have never gone anywhere else for that long and I can't imagine going anywhere else now! Sin Duda offers so many things that make it most appealing. First, I must say, the accommodations are superb! Whether one is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come stay with us at the end of the road on our secluded beach - a respite from the noise and bright lights. Using ecologically responsible technologies and a cheerful perspective to conserve our unique environment, we live through seasons leaving only footprints in the white Caribbean sand. Presenting 8 remarkable spaces designed by the past architect-owner. Sin Duda Villas reflects an appreciation of Mayan simplicity, form and tropical colors. With a bit of whimsy tossed here and there. Peaceful, unique and decidedly rewarding. ... more   less
