My family are seasoned travelers. We have stayed in many villas, and this rated among the top 10. Currently my family of four, including a 10 and 17 y/o thoroughly enjoyed our time at Akumal Breakers. It was tranquil, warm and inviting. Highly recommend going deep sea fishing with gofish.com...what fish we caught, they fillet for us, and we brought back to the villa, where Luis (one of the house staff) cooked it up for us...YUM! You are a little further away from Cancun, but that is NOT important, BECAUSE you are close to ALL THE OTHER TOURIST THINGS TO DO...a) TULUM, b) Xcaret, c) Xplor etc... many nights, we would go out on the beach and watch the turtles crawl up on the sand, to lay there eggs (this is a very powerful scene to watch)...still wondering when the cycle of the eggs will hatch, cause that would be equally amazing to watch the baby turtles digging their way out and racing to the ocean.
Blessed you will be if you end up choosing to stay at this Villa.
You will feel at home, with your private beach.
You will be happy not to have to share a Bathroom with any other family member, because their is one attached to every room.
The only down side is, that our bed was a little firmer than I was used too, and the water pressure was ok. (but I think that is the spoiled side of me coming out). However, even with this minor issues, I would return, and spend another week exploring Mexico, and stay at Akumal Breakers. THANK YOU.
ONE LAST THING: THE FOOD IN MEXICO IS AMAZING, all the restaurants we went too... WOW.

“Perfect Villa For Our Girls' Trip”
Reviewed May 29, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

people found this review helpful

We just returned from a wonderful week at Akumal Breakers for a girls' trip. The house is great, as is the outdoor area and beach. This villa has a lot of nice amenities--some big ones that you're expecting such as the beach, pool and A/C, but then there were a lot of nice touches that were unexpected, such as beach supplies, outdoor coolers, binoculars, etc.

It was so nice to be able to lay by a beach that practically felt private. The options are great--you can get full sun if you want it or lie under a palm tree if you want some shade at both the pool or the beach. The outdoor area is set up well with a table, chairs and loungers poolside, plus another set of table and chairs on the beach and separate loungers there, too. It's easy to transition from pool to beach and back, which is how we spent most of our days.

The location is great. It's easy to walk along the beach to Akumal Bay and back. We actually hung out at Akumal Bay a couple of days, but we chose to drive since we were carrying quite a bit of stuff. (The drive was very simple, as was parking. It was really nice being so close.) The snorkeling at the villa is good. It's not as good as what you will see at Akumal Bay, but after walking the beach several times, I can tell you that I don't think you'll find a nicer beach at any other villa. We also enjoyed taking inflatable rafts out in the ocean at the villa and floating back to the beach.

The house was a wonderful retreat when we needed it. The Apple TV was heaven for us, as we like to watch movies before bed. We usually have to bring DVDs with us, but the Apple TV allowed us to download what we wanted. They do have a collection of movies, music and books at the villa, which is a nice touch. The kitchen is great. We only ate out a couple of times (at Lol Ha while at Akumal Bay), and we were able to easily make what we needed for meals and snacks. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking.

Another perk of the house is that while there are great gathering areas, we also had our privacy. Each bedroom is quiet and has an adjacent bathroom, so with only three of us, we each had our own bed and bath. There is a separate common area half bath downstairs, which was wonderful in that none of us felt as if our bath became the "main" bathroom that everyone used during the day coming in from the pool or beach.

Mirna and Luis were very nice and helpful, yet they also managed not to be intrusive. It was a good balance of caretaking and privacy. We thoroughly enjoyed our massages on the beach from Mirna and Luis, too! Bottom line, after years of annual girls' trips going to other locations, we all agreed that we have found our "home" and definitely plan on being back for years to come. I highly recommend Akumal Breakers.

The owners were extremely helpful and easy to deal with. The staff were absolutely amazing and the villa itself was beautiful. Great beach and pool. I would recommend this villa to anyone who wants to get away from it all for a few days. A great vacation destination!

I recently stayed at Akumel Breakers with a group of friends and it was an amazing experience. The staff were so friendly and helpful. I even got a massage one day...right on the beach! Soooo good.
The house was beautiful and very clean.
I would highly recommend staying here. I can't wait to go back.

This was my first experience at a private rental in Mexico and it was PERFECT in every way. The house is absolutely incredible and immaculate. The private beach is beautiful and the staff amazing. The house is in a gated community with security patrolling beach at night. We always felt safe and secure. The pool and beach area were constantly maintained and beautiful. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a beautiful place on the beach to relax with friends and family. I will be back!!

“Southern Hospitality with A Caribbean Touch”

Living in the South we appreciate and respect hospitality which is what we experienced from the time we landed...to your incredible staff, to the local we met. We were looking for a secure, secluded get-away in the Caribbean. We experienced this and much more. The highlights were the meals your cooked prepared for us, the snorkeling, and the breathe-taking views of the sunsets from your beach. We highly recommend it and can't wait to return

Our joined families loved this vacation!! We had relaxing days on our own beautiful stretch of beach, fun in the pool, walks to Akumal and a few days of excursions! There were 8 of us so rather than renting a large van... we decided to use a driver with a big van for these trips and it worked out perfectly! Ask the owners for recommendations. We saw majestic sea turtles climb onto the beach and lay eggs, many exotic birds and many, many lizards! I think I have taken 5,000 pictures and 4,500 of them are keepers. The villa is supremely stocked and we overpacked because we weren't sure what to expect but there was nothing missing here! And the staff is AWESOME! They are even licensed massage therapists... Both of them! The observatory was great for star gazing and the perfect get away for quiet time away from the kids but still within ear shot. We have done several other VRBOs and this was the best! All I can say is.... 9 days was not enough.... We will be back!
