Wow!!! We passed by this place on our way to check out a condo down the beach found on booking.com. We stopped because of the dive center sign and went into check it out. We took a room for 2 nights. After the first night of having a drink at the beach bar followed by watching baby turtles go to the sea and mama turtles lay their eggs we were hooked! We went ahead and changed our reservation for the rest of our trip! The room was clean, we loved the laid back vibe of having a drink on the beach before going on turtle patrol for the night. We snorkeled to a little reef right off of the beach and Tony arranged for ocean and cavern diving. Much to do in the area! We will be back:-)
Two friends and I stayed in the 3rd floor 2 BR apartment recently and it was marvelous. The view was to die for, the food excellent, and the rooftop bar lovely. Our apartment was beautifully decorated and super clean and comfortable, with lovely blue tile. The balcony looked over the beach and sea and was just such a pleasure to wake up to every morning and to return to from our ventures. We walked up and down the beach to check out the neighboring resorts and came to the conclusion that the Villas deRosa has the best beach, best ocean waves, and nicest staff by far. Small and personal, the employees have been with the owners for years and it shows - excellent service and a great family feeling. The restaurant serves delicious food too. We were a bit of a pain - we broke our coffee carafe, and asked for ice and fresh tortillas (to cook ourselves) and there was never any hesitation. The design of the hotel with stairs and hallways open to breezes and beautiful archways giving glimpses of sea and forest were a bonus. Stay here if you like a quiet, relaxing vacation. We met a number of folks who've been returning for years. And we loved the eco consciousness - there was even a place to put our compost from the meals we cooked in our place.…
We visited for the first time with a group of friends for a destination wedding, who knows this place very well and it did not disappoint. The staff was phenomenal and took very good care of us all. The food and drinks were delicious, snorkeling was great and Tony helped us arrange excursions including transportation for visiting cenotes, diving and more. I love that it did not have a touristy feel and it was super easy to catch a Collectivo on the main road to get around. And it was such a special treat to witness part of the turtle hatching season! We will definitely be back and would highly recommend this place. :)
This is just the best place! We have stayed elsewhere in Akumal, but if you want the perfect low key get away - this is it! The staff is so wonderful, they make us feel so welcome. The food is wonderful and Javier accommodates any special request and then some. Thank you to Soco and Andres as well, and most of all thank you Tony. We will be back soon!
We just stayed here for nine wonderful days. In the past few years we would stay for 3 or 4 nights as an oasis on our way to the Belize border, but have also stayed for week-long vacations in the past. It is always clean, friendly and familiar. The staff has become friends over the years and we have developed friendships along the beach. And the beach is one of the best in the area for morning walks and a mix of bigger surf to the south and calm reef protected swimming in front and to the north. Just a quiet relaxing chill place with great rooms that has become a part of our lives.
