"Aventuras Akumal Paradise!"
We just returned from our 6th trip to Riviera Maya, and we LOVED Villas De Rosa! We've stayed at five star all-inclusive luxury resorts, and very basic hotels, and Villas De Rosa is our all time favourite. We booked a one bedroom ocean-view condo and we couldn't be more pleased. The staff were very friendly, the location is fantastic, and the condo was well equipped, clean, and well maintained. Check-in was a breeze and when we got to our condo moments later we were ecstatic. The condo has everything. The terrace was huge, and had seating for 10 with a fantastic view of the white sand beach, turquoise water, and sunrise. The living room was comfortable with views of the beach. The kitchen had all the stuff we needed, plus coffee, dish liquid, etc. The bedroom was roomy with a large closet with a safe, and a comfy Serta bed. The hotel restaurant was really good, and there is a swing bar and grill next door.
We spent 10 days and had a blast at Villas de Rosa. We spent a lot of time snorkelling right from the beach, and we got lucky and seen a sea turtle, sting rays, angel fish, rainbow parrot fish, an eel, and tons of other creatures. We often took the ten minute walk to the highway, caught very affordable collectivos (public transit buses that go by about every 3 minutes or so). We got baked goods from Turtle Bay Bakery and groceries from San Francisco supermarket in Tulum. Villas de Rosa is a quiet and understated gem in our opinion. Can't wait to go back!
