Recent Akumal reviews

  • A Mayan Riviera Paradise!

    "What a magnificent place! I've rented homes online before and what I saw was not always what I got. This exceeded my expectations in beauty, location, services and comfort. Udi's home is designed to perfection. The staff couldn't be better. Martin is an amazing chef. We will definitely return. It was particularly nice to go in July when we could watch the sea turtles lay their eggs on the beach, but this would be one of my top picks anytime of the year. The bedrooms are all gorgeous and the view from the living room is spectacular. Thank you for giving us the perfect family vacation. It was exactly what we hoped for! One final note. Udi takes great pride in both Akumal and his home and you get to work with him personally. He helped us immensely and we have become friends as a result."

  • Low Key Paradise

    "This was our 5th stay at Vista Del Mar and we have loved everyone. This year we had a 2 bedroom condo that was simply amazing. Beachfront is an understatement and the view is amazing. Half Moon Bay provides for amazing snorkeling and VDM is centrally located to make walking the entire Akumal/Akumal Pueblo/North Akumal area easy to do. If you are looking for wild party life this is not the place but if you want a low key place to relax, enjoy the beach and do some snorkeling then pack your bags. Forget the all inclusive and try out the local places not only to stay but also to eat. You will not regret it."

  • Discovered Paradise!

    "What a wonderful stay we had in Akumal at the condo. Everything a vacationer could want. Full amenities, kitchen, and beach. We were content to stay on the patio, converse, read, and enjoy the waves and beach. We discovered Paradise and can not wait to return. I recommend Terry and Randy's place to all. We will be back!"

  • Just How A Vacation Should Be

    "First, off, my wife's family is from Mérida, Yucatán, so going to the Riviera Maya is not really an adventure, any more than is visiting our Colorado Rockies from Denver. What we were looking for was a relaxing getaway. However, we had seven members of our family in our group, covering three generations, which can make relaxing difficult. We found Villa Italiano to be a delightful no-hassles alternative to the all-inclusive scene, at 1/3 the cost. It is large enough that the seven of us weren't falling all over each other, and were able to relax and enjoy. The location put us close enough to Tulum and Puerto Aventuras that visiting attractions and making grocery runs was no big deal. Akumal is withing hiking distance for those who want to enjoy the restaurants and attractions (wear shoes, there is some rock scrambling involved). We spent most of our time taking in the sun and the surf. Swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking were daily activities (well, relaxing with a cold one and a good book was up there, too). The beautiful property is clean and well maintained. The kitchen is well stocked with all of the necessities for cooking and serving. As to attractions, I visited the Tulum ruins when Playa del Carmen was a fishing village and the Mayan Riviera was virgin beach. Otherwise, that's a must-do--but in the morning before the heat and tourists arrive. Xel-Ha has been Disneyfied and priced to the point of ridiculousness. Yal-Ku Lagoon in Akumal is a much better choice. Also the Xel-Ha archaeological site is very close by. It is not a major site like Chichen-Itza or even Tulum, but it is interesting (if you are into Mayan culture), and rarely visited (we were the only party on site). The site boasts two cenotes for those who are inclined to take a swim and cool off--no extra charfe. So, if you want a frenetic vacation activity with all the food and drink you can possibly stomach, and all the activities you can cram into the time available, go somewhere else. If your idea of a vacation is kicking back, relaxing, and enjoying the ambiance of one of the most beautiful stretches of beach on the planet, this is a good place to do it. Highly recommended, and we will likely return."
