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.
