“Fine villas, worth the price”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

Villas Akumal are beautifully designed, well maintained and in one of the finest locations inthe Rivera Maya. Having a swimming pool and the beach right next to your room is a real plus with small children. Highly recommended!

This is our 3rd visit to Villas Akumal and it's just as idyllic as the first time. It is a small, out of the way time-share apartment complex that's a bit pricey, but if R&R is what you seek, this is the place! It's about an hour's drive south of Cancun.
The Villas are completely furnished apartments, well-equipped for those who want to get away from it all. Cable TV and high-speed internet are included, along with a Continental breakfast.
Prepare to shop ahead of time to stock the fridge for your evening meal, unless you want to drive a few miles to the nearest restaurant.
The weather is mostly perfect and the view is outstanding, looking out over the Caribbean. Today the sea is more calm than I have ever seen it.
For the water enthusiast, there are 4 single kayaks for paddling around the bay, some surfboards if the waves are up, and perhaps some snorkling gear. For the fishermen, it's a short drive to the town of Akumal, where one can schedule an am or pm outing. Scuba rental is available in Akumal as well.
If archeology is your thing, day trips to Tulum, Cobá or Chichen Itza are possible. If you're adventurous, check out the "cenotes" or underground pools where Mayans are said to have made sacrifices.
All in all, Villas Akumal is a wonderful escape from the humdrum of home life. ENJOY!!

Room Tip: EVERY room is a good room!!

We went to Akumal to snorkel with the turtles which was very nice, it is only 15 minutes down the beach from this hotel. We also got to see them help dig up some of the bag turtles that were not able to make it out of the nests. They let them go later that night and we were able to watch. The night before we left we got to see a turtle come up and lay her eggs. The rooms are very spacious and having a full kitchen was nice. The internet and cable are very limited though.

Room Tip: Bring a red light if you want to see the turtles lay eggs and see them let go because they won't...

As we checked into our beautiful two bedroom condo, I couldn't help but feel an immediate sense of relaxation. The gorgeous view overlooking the pool and the ocean beyond was breathtaking!

Our condo was well appointed with nice furniture, a well equipped kitchen, 5 gallon bottle of water, good internet, and everything else one could need for their stay. Late in the afternoon we took the 20 minute walk to the main beach area of Akumal and enjoyed margaritas. In the evening we drove to the same area, rather than trying to navigate the beach and stones in the dark, and enjoyed a fine meal at Cueva del Pescador.

The staff was kind and professional...thank you Elizabeth, Milca, and Porfirio! Unfortunately we were only able to stay one night, but will definitely return.

Excellent facility, with a kitchen very well equipped. Nice Ocean view, you will love it. The villa is very close to the beach, only 50 feet away.

Excelentes instalaciones, con cocina totalmente equipada. Muy buena vista del mar Caribe, les encantara. La villa esta muy cerca del mar a escasos 15 metros.

Room Tip: Pick the two bedroom ocean view.

Beautiful beach, immaculate villas, super friendly staff and delicious food. Couldn't ask for more. Even had green turtles lay their eggs on the private beach. Incredible experience. Great value for money. Muchas gracias Villas Akumal.

Room Tip: Some of the cheaper villas don't have sea views but most do. You get what you pay for.

We looove Las Villas Akumal, staff is always friendly, rooms are fully equiped, you only need to bring your beer, cheap styrofoam cooler, grosseries, and maybe a sharp knife or just ask the kitchen cook to sharpen the one you have in your room.

Their restaurant is open for breakfast and lunch. Continental breakfast is included (juice, coffee, fruit, bread).

TRY RANCHERO EGGS OR OMELETTE VILLAS.

For dinner you can drive to Akumal Pueblo 5 min or Playa del Carmen wich is at 15 minutes more or less. There is a supermarket called Chedraui were you can buy your grosseries if your plan is to cook dinner, that way you spend less money in restaurants and don't get Moctezuma's revenge wich sometimes is inevitable.

At Villas Akumal they have salt, pepper, chopping board, coffee, sugar, stensils, plates, pans, pots, fridge, stove, microwave.

If you're planning to cook bring also your own oil, if not you can always buy some from their restaurant i guess.

If you run out of ice las Villas sells some too.

Rooms are very beautiful, I spetially like the shower.

The ocean though is rocky, bring your Walmart swimming shoes you will need them for the first 3 meters or so, after that you're O.K.


If you like relaxing vacations THIS IS IT!

Room Tip: When you check-out ask for future discounts, they may offer a 40% discount if you pay right there yo...
