If you feel like this is all a bit much for you, then climb into one of the hammocks under the ocean side palapa and rock yourself to sleep to the sound of the water gently lapping at the shore. After a hard day of enjoying the best of the Caribbean lifestyle, make your way up to the big roof terrace and enjoy a margarita watching the sun go down and the millions of stars appear. if you are an early bird, this is a particularly spectacular place to watch the sun rise over the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We stayed here in January of 2011 and we still talk about it today. It is a great place in a great location. We couldn't have asked for a better place. The staff were excellent. The nearby restaurants were great.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Villa Valhalla. The house was large and comfortable. Six master suites, all with ocean views allowed everyone the same stay. The pool was perfect. We cooked in the kitchen as well as having two meals catered in by Chef Daveed. His meals were fantastic and authentic. Akumal is away from the crowds of Playa del Carman, but we didn't want for anything.

Absolute Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We found Villa Valhalla through Andrew, a rental agent at Sol Maya Rentals. It was our first time to Akumal and no one had a clue what to expect! It was absolutely PERFECT for our group. Complete Paradise. Highly recommended. The house was plenty big for our group (we rented 3 bedrooms at Balam Ek next door too!). In Villa Valhalla, there are 6 king bedrooms of equal size and each bedroom has it's own bathroom. There is a half bath as well in the main living area. The living space and bedrooms are bigger than the pictures let on, especially the kitchen area.

There are kayaks that you can use to kayak right off from the house and a few of us brought our own snorkels to use as well. You can also rent snorkel gear at the Akumal Dive shop - A short walk away. We snorkeled from the Akumal beach and saw giant turtles! The house is also a VERY short walk to La Buena Vita to have beers on the beach and enjoy some fish tacos.

The house was clean. Pool was wonderful. Staff was courteous. No complaints. Cannot wait to return.

We also used Paradise Transportation - Another recommendation from Andrew - To transport our large group (4 trips to/from the airport...It's a 60+minute drive). They were SO accommodating and we arranged everything prior to our arrival to make traveling with the large group so easy. Car not necessary if you only plan on hanging around Akumal. Thanks to Andrew L @ Sol Maya Rentals and everyone at Villa Valhalla!

Villa de Valhalla

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fabulous stay at Villa de Valhalla in Akumal. It was everything promised, very clean, beatutiful oceanfront views, and super wheelchair accessible. Just walking distance from a great snorkeling area where you get to swim with the turtles. We felt very safe in Akumal and will definitly be back again.
