“Studio #7 is Heaven”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Only stayed 2 nights at Vista Del Mar but it was so fine. We had studio #7 and is was a wonderful room with a to-die-for view.There was a small kitchen which we really enjoyed having to keep drinks and snacks in the refrigerator and for making our morning coffee which we loved having on the enormous terrace. Just sitting there taking in that view was one of the most memorable times of our whole vacation.The king size bed was quite comfortable and waking up to a fabulous view was surely icing on the cake.
Located right next door to La Buena Vida restaurant was a big plus as it's a bit of a walk back into town for meals and LBV has very good food. All in all we had a great time and would most certainly recomment this hotel for a very laid back vacation.

We just booked our 4th stay here so that should say much about this place. We love it here, the people are great and friendly. Our room is nice, simple and clean. Since fancy is not what we were are looking for, Vista Del Mar is a great get away from our hectic life. Beach and ocean view is to die for. Do not forget to see the wonderful guys at the La Buena Vida, they treat Packer fans great!

Room Tip: ALl rooms have a great view. I would not stay on the first floor. That is us.

That view out the spacious, and I mean spacious, balcony is matchless. The condo was spotless and beautifully colorful. Huge comfy bed, bright kitchenette, monstrous, luxurious bath and plenty of storage space. The convenience of renting snorkeling equipment at the nearby dive shop made our stay even more relaxing and the ease of walking to all the best snorkeling spots, where we encountered rays and huge turtles, not to mention every tropical fish in the book, made the location a delight. The al fresco dining down the road at la Vida Buena topped off our happy experience.

Room Tip: If you don't mind all the stairs, the top floor is breezy and private.

This was our second stay in Vista del Mar. This time we rented three condos: one for each of my daughters' families and a top floor studio for my husband and me. The studio was wonderful with a private super-large balcony and gorgeous ocean views, a picture window in the bathroom, and a little kitchenette. It was good that my daughter was right downstairs (there is an interior and an exterior stairway) as the kitchenette had nothing but a microwave, toaster and coffee pot--no stove/hotplate or oven--so what you can cook in it is limited. Our whirlpool bath did not function but its enormous size made it a real hit among the grand kids. The best features of Vista del Mar? The convenient location, the privacy, the peace and quiet, the daily maid service, the gorgeous beach and good snorkeling right out the door. The drawbacks? The units need a little maintenance. Missing light bulbs and non functional appliances are a possibility--though to be fair, the inconveniences we faced were minor and I did not draw the attention of management to them during the stay. I like the non-commercial, casual and friendly feel of this property and the price is reasonable for the pleasure the place provides!

Room Tip: For privacy and ocean views, the studios cannot be beat.

Ahhhh....relaxation to the 10th degree. We had a two-night stay in a three bedroom condo with some family and friends. It was a great way to share some time all together, and some time to ourselves if we chose.

My husband and I were married on the beach at Vista del Mar and had our reception at La Buena Vida in Dec of 2010. We had over 50 guest stay at Vista del Mar and everyone was pleased! The pricing is good, location is fantastic and the snorkeling out your front door can't be beat! Everyone loved it so much, 20+ people went back in January 2012 for an anniversary trip...again, everyone was pleased. The staff is friendly and accomodating and the condo's are kept very clean. It's a great place to feel at home in Mexico!

Our 10 person extended family rented 2 2-bedroom condos right on the beach as well as a studio condo upstairs from one of the units. I love the location, right on Half Moon Bay about halfway between Akumal Bay and Yal-Ku lagoon. Although the entrance to the water on HMB is rocky, you can snorkel right outside your sliding glass door! Vista Del Mar is a little rough around the edges--our ovens didn't work, the beds were mediocre, one microwave had a broken turntable and the shower took 10 minutes to warm up--but friendly staff, daily maid service (that included dish washing!), free wifi and the awesome location far from any crowds made this the perfect place to relax with family. You'll never have to worry about getting a deck chair!

Tips: Don't bring beach towels--the front desk will loan you fresh ones whenever you want them. The wifi signal is best closest to the office. Pick up your groceries on the way to Akumal at the Super Che near Playa Aventuras, about 15 minutes away by car.

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor room if you'd like easy access to the beach--an upper floor if you'd l...
