Forget the "all-inclusive" resorts. This is a low-key, beautifully maintained place, on a lovely beach, with wonderful staff. We have been coming here for five years now and would not consider anywhere else. Away from the bustle of the resorts, it is nevertheless close to the town - five minutes drive or a 15-20 minute walk along the beach.

Room Tip: Rooms on the upper level are quieter, although all the condos are set back from the beach.

This is a superb place to relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of this exquisite part of Mexico. The staff are friendly and eager to please, the accommodations are well equipped and maintained, the food is consistently fresh and refreshingly simple, and the location and relative isolation are simply heavenly. With ease of access to groceries, bars and simple restaurants, Mayan ruins, and adventure parks, Las Villas Akumal has everything you could need unless you tend toward the ostentatious and self indulgent resorts up and down the coast between Cancun and Tulum. This is a slightly biased review, because we were made to feel like the favored guests of each member of the staff. This is surely the most meaningful metric of customer satisfaction. We will most certainly return to our home away from home in Villa 106.

We have been traveling to Mexico for 13 years now. We bought a timeshare at the Moon Palace but have not used it the past 6 or 7 years. It was too crowded and too noisey. We moved our location further down the coast. For the past 3 years we stayed here...right on the beach ..in a one or two bedroom condo. It is a lovely, quiet spot to rest and regroup. A beautiful beach and a short walk to Akumal bay to snorkel. We also walk into Akumal at night for dinner. The staff at Las Villas are helpful and friendly. We rent a car at the airport,make a stop at the grocery store in Playa for some food and to stock our bar. We love it here!

Room Tip: The one bedrooms do not have a porch with a beach view. This year they are locking down one of the b...

15 minute walk to town. Good location and family setting. Relaxing and quiet. Basic two bedroom Villa. For family living beyond beyond a week we wished we had a washing machine/dryer and much better kitchen equipped with more than one knife. Service was friendly, but inconsistent. Liz is great. Be prepared for dinner if you arrive late. Restaurants in Akumal close at 9 or 10. Our time was 6pm.

Room Tip: Junior suite is musty. Ground level is better for circulation.

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...
