Studio unit on the beach with king bed, kitchenette and private balcony
What makes this Condo unique
Del Sol Beachfront is centrally located in North Akumal, yet private and romantic. The studio is bright and airy and has an uncluttered feel to the decor and layout. Half Moon Bay is right outside the door and the waves will lull you to sleep at night. There is a convenience store nearby, as well as receptionist at our office from 8 am to 8 pm daily.

Loved the place and had a great stay. Staff very helpful. Highly recomend.
Big sunny balcony right over the beach
We stayed for a week in November. This studio is cozy but and everything two people need, including a kitchenette, a big bathroom with a great shower/whirlpool bath, an awesome bed, and a huge balcony right over the ocean perfect for lounging/sunning/reading. Everything was really private too. The cameristas were great and we never needed for anything. La Buena Vida, right down the street, is a chill, feet-in-the-sand bar restaurant with perfect beach ambience and all the coconut shrimp and mescal you'll ever need. Akumal town is cute and small, but the beach is hopping.
We gave this place four instead of five stars for some minor upkeep issues in the room -- broken handle on the bathroom porch, the shower is a little wonky and noisy, screens don't always keep the mosquitoes out, and there is a palm tree that obscures some of the view. These things didn't really matter to us, but other people might make a bigger deal out of it.
All in all just about the perfect place for a couple to re-connect without interruption. The stars at night, the beautiful setting, the quiet, and the very reasonable price means we'll be back soon!
Great location and the best balcony on half moon bay. Interesting shower set up...
We had a wonderful time every morning and evening on this enormous and private balcony. The bed was adequate and the service was good. The towels were stained and the bathtub was quite high to swing a leg over for showering. I wouldn't recommend this for someone who is concerned with a possible slip and fall in the shower. Overall it was a great stay and we loved the abundance of windows and old world Mexico charm.
My Favorite Place to Stay in Akumal
I have stayed at Del Sol Beachfront for many years, it is so beautiful! You can't find a better ocean front view. It is so peaceful , always clean and the staff is awesome! The best food around is just down the beach at La Buena Vida.
Great place for a couple
There are many places to stay in Akumal, but as a couple, this was perfect for us. The place was always cleaned everyday, and the grounds were also clean.
We wanted a place we could have a private getaway, but a great oceanfront view. Some may complain of the palm trees that block a portion of the ocean, but we thought they added to the view. Most days on the beach it was hard to count a handful of people you could see.
The deck was quite large, with plenty of privacy. The lighting at night was nice and the low lights added a special ambiance.
La Buena Vida is a five minute walk away, with some of the best food, drinks and prices around. Lunch or dinner, especially at sunset is the place to be!
If you are looking for an all you can eat and drink resort, with massive beaches and elbow to elbow people, and must look your best 24 hours a day, this is not the place to stay. Look into places to stay at Cancun or Playa del Carmen.
But, if you are looking for a more laid back, old Mexico feel, Akumal is the place to go. You can still snorkel, deep sea fish, dive and even take an evening cruise in Akumal. Rent a car if you want to visit Tulum, etc., but walking around Akumal is a mile to anywhere. There's no late night parties and quite hours are from 10pm to 8am. Look else where if this does not fit your life style.
Our stay in the condo was all we needed. We didn't do much cooking, but the kitchen was small, but adequate for us. We were comfortable and felt safe. A very relaxing stay. The pool is between the condo and La Buena Vida, if you choose to use it.
4th Del Sol Trip in 2 Years
Usually we go to Mexico with family twice a year. In December we stay in Puerto Aventuras for a month, but the other trips we stay in Akumal. This was our 4th visit in 2 years in Akumal, and we've stayed at Del Soll every time. The condos are right on the water with a beautiful eastward view of Half Moon Bay. Good snorkeling and swimming; we saw small rays within 15 yards of our beach chairs. We love being able to walk to La Buena Vida for drinks and meals - maybe the most relaxing restaurant/bar on the planet!!! The Corner Store attached to Del Sol has drinks and snacks. You can walk or drive to Lol Ha, another good restaurant.
This trip was so relaxing, maybe the best yet. Plenty of rest, plenty of beach time, just awesome. The only downer was checking into the condo and the a/c had not been turned on in advance, so it was about 85 to 90 degrees in there. Took 5 hours or so to cool down so we went to LBV for a beer. Maybe it's a marketing strategy. More selection on the TV would be nice, also, but that is minor. The camarista did a good job every day of cleaning our unit. We'll definitely be back.
It's so great to hear you enjoyed a relaxing and restful time during your stay at Del Sol Beachfront.
You may know that electricity is extremely expensive in Mexico. In an effort to conserve energy the management does not turn a/c on when the units are unoccupied.
We agree it can be somewhat stifling upon entering the closed condos! We find that opening the front and back doors wide and turning on the fans removes the hotter trapped air efficiently. Once the temperature has cooled off a bit, we close the doors and windows and then turn on the a/c.
We will pass your positive comments onto our housekeeping staff - thanks!
