“Wonderful Wedding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2010

We celebrated our perfect day at Las Villas Akumal in November. We found it by a fluke the previous year while we were scouting the area for a wedding location. Las Villas Akumal fulfilled all of our criteria-- quiet, on the beach, with a pool, enough room for our guests, but NOT a big mega-resort.

Before we even arrived, LVA met all of our needs. Claudia made it easy for us and our guests to make reservations via e-mail. She also referred us to an amazing wedding planner, Natalia Schweitzer (weddingsonthebeach.com.mx), who worked with the hotel and took care of everything wedding related. And the hotel manager, David, created a delicious wedding menu for us to eat at their rooftop restaurant.

When we arrived we were well taken care of. (And we were surprised to find the divided highway had been extended and a sign added making it easier to get there.) The staff was wonderful...they made appointments for us at the spa for onsite massages, mani/pedis, and a hair up-do; they made a dinner reservation for our group and called vans to take us there; they helped us with kayaks and gear for the water; and they kept the grounds and the rooms immaculate.

We got married on the beach and had our perfect day. Natalia had planned everything wonderfully and David facilitated everything until the end of the night. Our guests had a wonderful time and our favorite Canadian couple, whom we had met the year before, was on hand with their recommendations for the best snorkeling spots.

Las Villas Akumal is such a special place. (I haven't even mentioned the turtles, the iguanas, and nearby ruins and cenotes!) Perfect for a wedding and a perfect place on the beach to relax. I can't wait to go back next year, and neither can our friends.

I stayed at Las Villas Akumal in June the week before I was getting married. We had several family members and friends and rented 6 villas between us. All of the 1, 2 and 3 bedroom villas were wonderful. They were each very clean, and any room is just steps away from the pool or beach. We loved swimming in the pool, walking the beach to look for shells or turtles. Some of my family even saw a turtle nest hatch and got to see the babies go to sea! We held our rehearsal dinner at La Vista Azul, the onsite restaurant, and had great service by the staff. Thank you David for helping us with everything! Anything we asked for, hair dryers, irons, etc, were promptly placed in our villas. Claudia and Milka were so helpful with everything, from calling us taxis, to giving us directions, always with a smile. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful place to stay with my friends and family. It was natural and peaceful, with the town of Akumal a 5 minute drive away. We would definitely stay here again!

We found Villas Akumal through our Mexican friends, and spent 3 nights there last week. The Riviera Maya is in the grip of Swine Flu hysteria, and we pretty much had the entire peninsula to ourselves. The Villa's Akumal was the perfect spot to enjoy a few family days with our friends. They have two lovely pools, on that was the perfect splash spot for a new mommy and baby. Our 2 bedroom/2 bath ground floor unit was huge, and had a great view of the ocean. We ordered lunch and dinner from the restaurant, and everything was fresh and delicious.

There was a beautiful young lady from Chiapas that had a nice selection of handcrafts from her home state. We ventured into Tulum and Akumal, and found everything we needed. Having a local to tag along makes the grocery shopping easier, as they know how to spot the small stores in the "workers villages" that have the best fresh produce for a bargain price.

David and his crew keep a beautiful spot. Check them out.
