Hello recently was in Akumal and hit up La Buena Vida Restauarant, the experience was so good ended up going back to it with an even bigger group the next night.

The service was extremely good and the food delicious. The atmosphere was awesome with the swing chairs at the bar the tree top tables and the pool. Definitely worth a night off the resort for the experience.

We discovered this place by accident and couldn't be happier that we did. Great food, great atmosphere, great view. If you want to kick back, enjoy a drink, and relax, this is the spot. One of my favorite places I've ever been, climbing up a tree into the "bird's nest" was a very cool experience, although I had a bird fly into my head.

Can't wait to get back!

One of our favourite places, we always drop by here for a lovely lunch and great cocktails with views to die for! Right on the beach this restaurant has a lovely vibe, always busy. This year we were being blown away by strong winds, and discovered their dining room upstairs and enclosed! perfect!

We've been here before 3 years back on our last trip to Akumal. Its such a cool bar/restaurant, really the best atmosphere in the area. Drinks are good however they served my 9 and 12 year old Pina Coladas with alcohol. Thankfully we figured it out after they had only a bit of them, but it was definitely an eye opener. We didn't have the best waiter, but they were all very friendly. Food was above average, its not the best in the area but its always consistent and the menu is very diverse. Recommended regardless of the mishap.
