If you go to Akumal, you really should check out Buena Vida. It’s casual and has something for everyone. Our family loved hanging out at the pool and on the swings- very relaxing! We even stayed to watch futbol on the TV since World Cup games were on.

We always visit this restaurant for breakast when we are in akumal. The breakfast
Is not amazing but it's passable and cheap in price if you just want a normal
Omelette and pancakes, for example . We love the ambient of the restaurant. Every table or bar stool lets you rest your feet in the sand and it's ocean front. And if you are feeling adventurous there is tree house seating ! its never crowded in the mornings and service is fast. Right now the seaweed is taking over the beaches in this area and the smell was horrible. We sat as far away from beach as possible which ruined the experience a little. But that's Mother Nature's fault not the restaurant.

Visited twice on our 3 day stay in Akumal. The food was incredible and also quite reasonably priced. Included even traditional Mayan options as well as local favorites. The staff is friendly and helpful. The seaweed coating the beach was a drag but completely not their fault. We are looking forward to our next visit.

We came to this restaurant in May 2018 when visiting Akumal and really enjoyed our time there. The food is delicious and very reasonably priced for the quality. The restaurant is situated on the beach front with gorgeous sea views, and a small section of beach where you can sit with drinks. There is also a tree house which offers stunning views of the bay.
