We were a group of six, three couples. The 3 bedroom condo was perfect for us. Large spacious rooms including a kitchen, dining room, and living room and deck in addtion to three large bedrooms with bathrooms gave us all the privacy and/or communal space we needed! We were within walking distance of: several great restaurants, the lagoon for gorgeous snorkling, town for the fresh vegetable market and groceries. We were swimming with turtles right in front of our condo (although the best turtle viewing was the beach "downtown" Akumal). We will return!

We happened upon this hotel by the recommendation from one of the members of the LocoGringo forums. This is our home away from home! The staff have always been friendly in our five visits sans one housekeeper. Then to be able to mosey over to La Buena Vida and their hostess over there, you can't ask for any better than this.
Would I recommend this? ABSOLUTELY! As long as their is room for us! :-)

I had a great time in Akumal and couldn't have asked for more from Vista Del Mar. The condos are right next to the beach but be cautious because the beach is filled with sharp rocks and coral.

Vista Del Mar is a perfect setting for a family or adult vacation. You are right on the Caribbean with a short walk to everything you need (and want). The snorkeling right out the door is superb and when the waves are too big, it's only a short walk to the Akumal city beach. The corner store is so convenient located at the end of the hotel and has yummy ice cream for the kids (and adults). The collectivo takes you to Tulum, where you can learn about an ancient Mayan civilization and great markets in the central business district. We'll be back! The maids are superb as well, cleaning your condo every day making it look and feel fresh. Tip them well, they deserve it!

Our stay here was extremely relaxing and was exactly what we needed. We stayed in a ground floor 2bdrm ocean-front condo and the property is extremely quiet here... This condo was spotless, excellent staff who were ever so kind to me as I arrived very ill and desperate for early check-in. We are very familiar with the area but new guests staying here should bring water shoes as the water entry in front of the condo is a bit rocky. There are other places to enter too though. We truly loved this property, we will definitely return if only for the peace and quiet.. it exceeded our expectations, fit us and the couple we travel with perfectly. Slice of Paradise right here, what a gem!

This resort is great! Second time I have stayed here, would recommend to anybody looking for a beach front condo. Nice staff, very clean rooms. Close to restaurants, bars, shopping, grocery fishing and diving. I would suggest the beach front condos instead of upper levels, it is worth it!

This is an inexpensive property on a nice quiet beach that is good for snorkeling. The beach on Akumal bay is more family friendly but we prefer a quiter, less crowded area. If you are looking for 4-5 star property look elsewhere. If you want a convenient, clean, quiet location at a bargain, this is your place.

My family loves the low-key Mexican vacation that this area provides. Vista del Mar is the perfect base to come home to after a day enjoying the area.
Vista Del Mar is in a perfect location - right on the beach and next to La Buena Vida. It's a scant 15 minute walk to the shops and restaurants and even less than that to the beautiful and serene Yal-Ku Lagoon. I love staying at Vista Del Mar because you have the best of both worlds. It's a short trip to the night life in Playa Del Carmen or even Cancun or you can stay in the peace and quiet of the beach and swing in a hammock. The Tulum ruins are nearby and cenotes are everywhere. The 2 bedroom condo was spacious and very clean and the kitchen had all the appliances we needed to make a good meal from the local market. It was the perfect getaway and I intend to come back again and again.
From: Chicago, IL
Pluses: The location couldn't be better, right in the center of town, steps from the ocean, close to La Buena Vida Restaurant and Bar and both corner convenience stores. The prices were great. The view from the balconies was great. Turtle nests right on the sand in front of the property. Every morning we would wake up to newly protected buried eggs.
Cons: Over didn't work, Toaster didn't work, AC worked great in thw two smaller bedrooms but the master off the living room never got very coold so we had to leave the shutters open to get air from the main room. The fridge was tiny. When you have a three bedroom condo you expect a full size fridge for a weeklong stay but we had to get rid of a lot of food. No pool unless you want to walk over to La Buena Vida Bar.
Overall this is a good place to stay if you are looking for economical, right on the beach and don't need anything fancy. It was fine for us b/c we were only there to sleep and shower.
From: Atlanta, GA
Condo itself was great but we did not enjoy Half Moon Bay as it is a poor beach for walking, snorkeling and swimming. Akumal Bay is much nicer for those three activities and Tulum Beach is the hands-down winner for walking and splashing in the surf.
Half Moon Bay requires you to wear shoes almost all the time due to the massive amount of dead coral that litters the beach along the shoreline and for 50 meters out into the bay.
With that said, we had at least 5 turtles lay eggs at night on the Vista Del Mar beach for our mid-June trip.
The condo itself was roomy though the towels and linens were in pretty poor condition. Front desk fellow was nice and helpful. Loco Gringo is also great!
My family likes wave busting and long walks on the beach - we ended up going to Tulum and Akumal Bay twice each to spend time on the beach.
I would say Vista Del Mar would be great for 3 couples looking to split costs and make for an inexpensive Mexican beach vacation.

The staff here was incredible. Julio and Bascilla met our every need.We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo for two weeks with two 16 year olds and my parents. Everyone enjoyed the condo. We had beach front acess. It helped to have HBO for the teenagers at night to keep them occupied as well as internet acess.The condo was clean and had all the amenities that we needed in the kitchen.The maid service was great. It was nice to also have our excursions set up for at the office. I would stay here again.

We spent a week in the king studio #7 in mid May. The room was clean and comfortable with tons of storage space. Kitchenette had a microwave, coffee maker, blender, tableware, bottled water, paper towels, etc. The room was cleaned everyday, including the dishes. Bathroom was spacious, with adequate toilets, a very large jacuzzi tub which we never used and the shower had plenty of hot water after letting it run for a minute or two.
The balcony is huge!!! We enjoyed it so much. We loved lounging around at all times of the day, watching the turtles swim around and surface for air. They provide a hammock, 2 lounge chairs and a dining table/chairs. There are also steps from the balcony right into the jacuzzi tub/shower. We could have lived out there.
It rained the first three days we were there, a driving downpour, and water did leak in the sliding glass door. We just threw down towels and carried on. Small price to pay for beachfront living. We talked to several condo owners in other complexes over the following days, and they all had varying degrees of water in their places too. Also, just a warning that the towels and linens are pretty threadbare. We're not fussy on vacation, but at home they'd be in the rag bin :)
We walked into Akumal everyday and had breakfast at Imelda's or Turtle Bay. Both were delicious! Had dinner and drinks at both Lol Ha and La Beuna Vida and all but one or 2 meals were great.
Half Moon Bay was a little too rough for me but my husband snorkeled it several times and came away with some great pictures!
If you're terribly particular this might not be the place for you, but if you're laid back and enjoy quiet simplicity, it's perfect. It's nothing fancy but all in all a great value. You can't beat the price and the view is as lovely as it gets! Very beautiful, quiet and relaxing! We'll be back someday.
Our stay at Vista del Mar turned out great. After it poured rain all of our 2nd night we woke up to room 301 being flooded. This was a 3rd floor studio with no damper under the door. 90+% of the floor was covered in water. We waited till reception opened at 8am and headed down for help. After initially being told that a maid would be up at 9am to mop and that it was the rainy season, we insisted that it was worse than they probably thought and were shown an alternate room. The guys in reception were very accommodating and actually moved us to a huge 1st floor unit (unit 6). We were very happy with our stay in this unit. Only cons were: little ants in kitchen area and the shower took at least 10 minutes for hot water to arrive. I think we would go back for the location to the beautiful beach and water. We enjoyed the little bit (2 minute drive) of isolation from Akumal Bay. Half Moon Bay was super peaceful and far from crowded in July. Rent a car for access to Tulum, cenotes, Xel-Ha. Definetly go to Yal-Ku-5 minutes from Vista del Mar...probably my husband's fav spot. We spotted way more turtles in Akumal Bay and ate at Lol-Ha there more than anywhere else over the 8 days.

We (2 adults, 2 teens) rented condo #3, a two bedroom, 2 bath on the second floor. The condo was directly on the beach with a large balcony. Several ceiling fans and good A/C kept the unit cool at all times. Free wireless internet worked in the unit - you need to get password from lobby staff. Two turtle nests in front and plenty of chaises in the shade on the beach. It was spacious and met all our needs. Snorkeling was surprisingly good in front of LBV. Daily maid service was excellent. The "satellite" television only got 3-4 channels which was disappointing to our teens, but they survived. A very short walk down the beach to LBV for a few meals - quality was very good. Hard not to enjoy dinner with your toes in the sand! Used Riviera Maya Groceries based on LG recommendations and it was perfect. Wonderful to arrive to a fully stocked fridge.
Perfect spot for what we wanted/needed! You could not get any closed to the water. Studio was spacious, huge bathroom and tub! Awesome views. TV only got maybe 5 stations, but, hey, that is not why we were there! We will return, no question.

We had construction right above us and couldn't even talk to each other it was so loud. Then the next day my sister had some of the contruction pieces come down on her. I know it has to be done, but this WAS the slow season, couldn't it have been done differently?
Otherwise, I LOVE this place.

This is a great value and we really enjoyed our week there. The drain in one of the bathroom sinks needs to be repaired and the mini-fridge does not freeze ice in the trays but these are such minor items that we did not even care about them. This condo is really a great place to stay and we felt very comfortable. The Corner Store is so convenient to have right there. There could be a little bit more convenient way to charge a golf cart at night besides using an A/C outlet hanging by a couple scary-looking wires. If more than one person needs to charge a golf cart at night, there could be a problem.

Right on the beach! Not luxurious but clean and comfortable. A fantastic value. The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes and pots and pans.
Located on a quiet bay with direct access to snorkeling with turtles and the coral reef.
Stayed in Studio/Suite 8 August 2010. It was not fancy or a luxury resort but it was clean and had everything we needed: king bed, giant balcony (with hammock and chairs), great views of Half Moon Bay, kitchenette, good location, friendly staff. Just walk downstairs and your feet are in the sand. The area was quiet and great for our relaxing, romantic getaway. Walk, bike or car ride to everything in Akumal.
From: Gleneden Beach, OR
Staff was friendly. Food was good, althought we missed something for dessert.
Home could use some maintenance; namely, the dishwasher is falling out of the wall, the sink leaked, but was repaired. The spa was not workable. Staff could put it on, but we could not when we wanted to use it and it only got warm. Staff said it was due to the PVC piping that it could not get hat! That was a new one to us! Also, one of the lights next to the outside sofa did not work and needs repair.
A very small thing would be good in the bedroom where we stayed--a luggage rack. We had to put our luggage on the floor of the closet.
Additionally, it would be nice to have shampoo and conditioner in the bathroom.
The beach was OK, but had way too much seaweed to enjoy the water and lots of garbage a short way south of the Villa. Should be cleaned up and kept clean.
Overall it was nice, but a few improvements would help.

We stayed 1 night in a 2 br condo with friends,and 1 night in a ground floor double room ,right on the sand!We went fishing with their dive center boat and had a great time,was reasonable rate,and caught fish.We cooked some in the condo as well as had the restaurant cook some for us for lunch and was fantastic !
We were reprimanded when we returned for missing checkout time when we were on their boat fishing that returned an hour after checkout.Thay were waiting for us near our unit and hurried us to pack up immediately and move to our other unit,to accomodate maids that sit around all day.
The place was deserted,had no one coming in to our unit ,and the building had 5 or 6 just like it empty and they threatened to charge us extra, when we just spent $120 fishing ! Huh !
The restaurant on the beach was awesome,super charming,good food,reasonable drinks and was the best thing about the place.
The units were nice at one time,but seemed a bit worn and run down,we tried to cook breakfast in the condo,but the dishes and cookware were minimal,and spent an hour and had to get the manager to look in other units for a can opener,and a frying pan Huh ! Worn cushions,low end linens,etc and had a nice patio but plastic minimal patio furniture with no pads etc.The bathroom smelled like sewage,and the shower unit faucet was broken,and the toilet stopped up the first use and remained that way for our stay,no one came with a plunger.
They put us in an upstairs unit,when the building was virtually empty,upgrading us to a downstairs unit would have been a good move,but refused to do it,wanted more money,despite the problems with our unit.
The hotel room was what was expected,basic and tiny patio.for the price was OK.As usual people from the upper units came down at 3 am and grabbed all the chairs in front of the unit by putting towels and books on them,and left them empty for most of the day,so had to go over to the next building to use loungers,and had people right outside our door part of the day using "our" palapa and loungers.These buildings are notorious for having 4 sets of beach furniture for a building with 8 or 12 units.We were lucky that it wasn't very busy or would have been a nightmare.Trudging thru the sand all day to the chairs -palapa,at the next building with gear,food drinks etc while someone had their stuff at the chairs 5 feet from our patio was aggrivating,and dint occupy them most of the day.A second row of palapas for the upper units and marking them for the units would be a plus.
This place needs some tlc and many other condos in the same price range in the bay are much nicer!
If the price was 1/3 less you would be happy here,but for the money stay at a nicer building! We have found that renting from condos that have private owners instead of "building owned" units are waay nicer,better equipped and much more well kept !:-)

Really enjoyed our week stay at Vista Del Mar Norte. We rented a first floor, 3 bedroom condo for family of 5. Location was wonderful. Staff was friendly and helpful. Condo was clean, well maintained, and provided everything we needed. Would have loved to have a washer/dryer and TV with more consistent service; but did not expect either - so not a problem. Great location; could walk right onto beach and also walk into town. Hope to return again soon.

This hotel and condo complex are in a great water front location away from the main beach area of Akumal. We have stayed at the hotel but we prefer the added comfort of the condo. There are good restaurants within walking distance. The staff at Vista del Mar are helpful and professional. To appreciate this area I would suggest you rent a car. There are great snorkeling beaches and ruins to be explored. There are also some small local restaurants in the area that you should not miss. The staff at Loco Gringo will take care of you like you are family. Go to Akumal you will love it.

This was our second visit to the region but our first at VDM and we are very pleased with our stay. Reception staff were very pleasent and accomodating. Cleaning staff did a great job. Our studio was perfect for us - spacious, bright, clean with a comfortable bed. The terrace was large yet private and a perfect setting to have breakfast overlooking the bay. One tiny recommendation would be a chair in the room but this won't stop us from renting the same studio next year.
Half-moon bay is pretty to walk and sun on. Snorkeling is very good but entry is rocky so you need water shoes. Having Yal-ku lagoon and Akumal beach on either side gave us nice variety for our snorkeling pleasure. Our vacations are a mix of adventure and quiet contemplation and VDM provided a perfect spot for it.
I can't get enough of this place. It isn't luxury, but it has view, great staff, view, close to the ocean and the view.

I was very satisfied with our stay in Akumal at Vista Delmar, the location was perfect. The only negative I have to say about this place is that the bedding smelled. One of the pillows smelled like urine so we had to take it off the bed and use the other two pillows. The white sheets were not stained but you could tell they were well used and do not have a fresh smell to them.

Our condo (303) was on the third floor, which wasn't a problem until it began to rain. Hard. This made the tile floor and steps very slippery. The condo itself had a wall of windows overlooking the ocean, both in the main living/eating area as well as bedroom. Gorgeous views! The counter space was very limited, barely enough for even simple food/drink preparations. The furnishings are basic and functional. Bed and pillows comfortable, and the soft white linens and towels were always appreciated! Helpful and friendly staff. And just a few short steps from La Buena Vida (LBV)restaurant. This hotel shares the pool with LBV. Sandy beach, but rocky when you enter the water from Half Moon Bay. Good snorkeling opportunity just off shore. Overall, a great value and outstanding location.
By: John Roudebush
The last night of our trip we stayed here as our beach house was already reserved for our last day prior to our booking. While overall the property was in decent shape we had a top floor condo (4th floor) with no elevator and the ceiling leaked in one spot. The beach in Half Moon Bay is rocky though in close proximity to Akumal and practically right next door to La Buena Vida so not a huge disadvantage. For the price it is ok but would look for other accommodations if available.

This property had absolutely nothing
By: Laura Bryon
We love the village and bays of Akumal and staying in Vista Del Mar condos has consistently been our perfect option, rather than a hotel w/o any living space or kitchen or an expensive villa we'd feel obligated to hangout within. And it provides a deeper vacation enjoyment than staying at an all inclusive would, because the working locals who live nearby (mostly in Akumal's pueblo across the freeway) are pleasant, environmentally conscious, and totally deserving to be part of the area's economy. Vista Del Mar is a few minute walk from Akumal's public beach and village center which provides a nice balance of liveliness and peacefulness. The vibe is relaxed and everyone is HAPPY, you will be too!

Location Location, this is a great location, and a three bedroom which was perfect for our needs. The kitchen was very lacking in amenities but overall the property was very functional.

The 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom unit fully met our expectations - It was absolutely great.
We took our second trip to VDM this year in Dec 2014. We love the condos there. When we were there in May 2014, the outsides of the buildings were white and they have since painted them multiple bright colors. After a couple of days, it really grew on me and I think it looks great. We stayed in Condo #5 a 2 bed 1 bath until. It is vary spacious. The housekeeping, desk guys and groundskeepers are all great. The La Buena Vida restaurant and bar right down the beach is super convenient and a great place as well; good happy hour drink specials and reasonably priced food. We just love going to Riviera Maya and enjoy doing so much there. One of our favorite places is Akumal Bay which is no more than a ten minute walk one way and Yal-ku Lagoon is a ten minute walk the other way so the location is perfect. Would recommend and I will be back!

We were very pleased with our rental. The cleaning crew kept the room very clean. They swept up every grain of sand each day.

Would definitely stay here again.

This was the perfect location for our 10 day post holiday retreat. The condo was clean and comfortable, the staff was excellent and you can't beat the view. We loved the daily maid service and Carlos, the manager was very prompt and helpful with any questions and concerns. he became a friend.

My husband & I, along with good friends, recently returned from a ten day stay at Vista Del Mar condos. We were a little nervous because we had never done the condo thing before; plus we had never stayed on Half Moon Bay. I am happy to report both experiences were fantastic. The weather was perfect for our entire stay. The condo we had was a two-bedroom, two-bath arrangement. It was big enough for two couples to have enough room without tripping over each other, but also offered privacy if you wanted it. La Buena Vida restaurant was very good & close by. Half Moon Bay offered many opportunities for snorkeling. It takes some getting used to because we were used to Akumal Bay, which is a sandy bottom. HMB is more rocky and shallow. But after a few days, we had it figured out and found more diversity in fish, etc. than in Akumal Bay. Staff at Vista Del Mar were very friendly and helpful whatever our needs were. No question we would stay there again. I would recommend if you plan on doing a fair amount of cooking, bring some recipes, spices & measuring cups/spoons. These were not included in the kitchen. The kitchen supplies were a little sparse if you plan to do a lot of cooking. Maid service was provided daily and she even did our dishes, it was great. Overall, we loved it!

Our fully equipped and comfortable condo was on the beach facing the ocean. A short walk away from La Buena Vida restaurant. Walking distance from the lagoon in one direction and the town and beach in the other direction. What a beautiful time. And completely affordable.

We loved the location being close to La Buena Vida, pool, and dive shop. We didn 't like all the sea weed piled up in front of the condo and not being able to walk out to the water. The room was clean and staff was great. I have been coming to Akumal for 20 years and all the seaweed was a surprise. We are wondering what caused this??

Very comfortable and clean. Always had a secure feeling in Akumal. Lots of great restaurants.
We were very happy with the two 3 bedroom3 bath condos that we had for 9 people the first full week of January. Property was kept clean and comfortable, maid service great, and being right on the beach was just what we wanted. Some of us really enjoyed the hammocks, too. Over the years we have stayed in 4 or 5 different properties in Akumal and have always enjoyed our stay in Akumal.

I loved waking up to the beautiful sunrise seen through the large windows in our suite. The waves crashing on the shore was very calming. The suite was very clean, and well laid out. The service was fantastic. I would definitely stay at the Vista Del Mar again.

It was beautiful, nothing wrong with the place. I rented a car which was the way to go. Also you can rent bikes too while you are there. Best place to eat turtle bay and la Bueno vida for dinners. I will be back!

A little time away from stressful ives and it was marvelous! We love Del SOl and ahve been to it several times. I love the location and the condo unit itself. We are not "big resort type people. I lvoe having the beach right out the sliding glass doors. If I could live anywhere in the world I am pretty sure it would be right here at Del Sol.
