“Best Condo on the beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

These condos were awesome, definitely will stay here again! The view rocks, the service was great and the location is perfect. The food at the La Buena Vida is superb too. They have bikes and kayaks to rent and a beautiful beach that they keep very clean!

Just back from our second stay at the Vista Del Mar condos. I love it here and will definately return. Fantastic location right on a lovely and quiet beach about a mile from the main beach It's becoming a bit busy on the main beach now with lots of groups coming in from other resorts to snorkel with the turtles so it's good to be outside. You can lie in bed and listen to the sound of the waves and wake up to the wonderful sight of the sea filling your large windows. Spacious condo with a large balcony and it is situated about a hundred yards from the famous La Buena Vida bar and restaurant where you can enjoy the atmosphere and good cocktails. The condos are very spacious and have everything you need and a very comfortable bed. This is a laid back place and not for you if you need 5 star all inclusive luxury but the staff are very friendly and helpful.
Akumal is a great resort miles away from Cancun style Mexico. To me it has the atmosphere of a Greek village and remains completely unspoilt with no high rises. The only downside is that everything (except La Buena Vida) closes at 9pm so you have to ensure you go out early for dinner.

We spent 2 nights here, but we could have spent more. Rooms are small but comfortable and have everything you need- even a fridge and TV. All the rooms open right out to the beach, which is amazing! It's a quiet area but there are bikes for rent and you can find plenty to eat in town. We went snorkeling right off the beach in front and saw lots of great reef, fish, and (of course) turtles! Great place!

My wife and I have been to Vista del Mar several times and have enjoyed it every time. The condo is well equipped, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The beach on Half Moon Bay is a great place to snorkel, and La Buena Vida, the on-premise restaurant/bar, is right on the beach with great views and excellent food and service. Convenience stores and other restaurants are within walking distance, or you can rent a bike from Vista del Mar very inexpensively. We've been to Cancun, and Akumal is much more peaceful.

I so wanted to give this condo a 5 star review when we first walked in the front door. It was a gorgeous top unit (#4), with a wonderful layout and perfect deck with plenty of room to spread out. Towels on our bed had been folded into kissing swans! We stayed for two nights, and decided to add 3 more because it was quiet, laid back, and good location. Then something happened. Following a big storm the smell of raw sewage poured up from our bathroom drains, permeating the condo with the smell of feces. The staff was attentive, but not aggressive enough in trying to fix the problem. In fact, there was a shoulder shrug as if to say, "this is how it is here". Each day, twice a day, the staff had to pour a chemical down the tub drain and we had to keep them all covered. They assured us this smell would pass, so we decided not to change rooms. The second problem was dirty linens. The sheets and bed spreads were covered with rust stains and other stains (if you catch my drift). I’m sorry VDM. I don’t think we’ll be back.

We have stayed at Vista Del Mar many times and it is always a pleasure. The condos are well equipped and very comfortable. The reception personnel, maids, and handyman are all very pleasant and helpful. We enjoy the fully equipped kitchen for a meal or two each day. Akumal has several excellent restaurants, too. The pool nearby is enjoyable, and the dive shop personnel are excellent.
Just sitting in the living room overlooking the ocean is very relaxing and peaceful. Each evening we sit and watch the sunset over the jungle on a private balcony on the west side of the hotel. La Buena Vida!

Room Tip: I like the top floor condos at Vista del Mar Norte as they are more private and have a wonderful bre...

Customer service here is top notch!We arrived for our weekend stay in the early morning. We were given a nice room right away and got right to the beach outside our door. Bottled water,frig,coffee maker and a mini-mart on property Very handy! We rented bikes for the day at reception and went to the lagoon at the end of the road. This two night stay was the high light of our month in Quintana Roo.
