Villas DeRosa Beach Resort

Reviewed 11 April 2017

The rooms are simple but comfortable. An ocean front room is the only way to go. 2nd and 3rd floor ideal for unobstructed view. Very friendly staff. Extremely laid back vibe. Room service a very nice touch especially for breakfast on your balcony or on the beach. Tiny but awesome beach bar right next door. A little remote - you have to drive to Akumal village but it's less than 5 minutes.

Room Tip: Ocean front

We wanted to stay away from the huge resorts and enjoy a quiet, relaxing week in Mexico. This hotel was perfect! The view from our third floor balcony was amazing. The beach out side was very quiet - just used by hotel guests - which at the most there were 8 people in the area. Defiantly book ocean front. its worth it to get up in the morning, have your coffee and breakfast on the deck and enjoy the ocean. The staff was great as well. Cleaning service perfect. They provided everything we needed in the kitchen - though the local food was so good that we ate out most meals. There was coffee too! There is only AC in the bedroom, but there was such a great breeze off the water that we didn't need it except for at night. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: ask for a second or third floor. Unless you have kids - then the bottom floor allows easy on/off bea...

This is a very nice hotel and a friendly place. Great for all ages if you are looking for a low-key medium-sized hotel, not a fancy resort. The beach is perfect. This is a prime piece of real estate! Much nicer sand and beach than the larger resorts in either direction. There are about a dozen palapas with chairs and tables and plenty of available seating when we were there. You can order meals for delivery to your room, the beach or poolside. The oceanfront condos are great. The first floor condos have patios right on the beach so you can walk right out to a palapa. The upstairs condos have more privacy and great views. The kitchens are fully equipped, but the nearest grocery is probably a 15 minute drive away, in Tulum. The hotel rooms are all on the back of the building with balconies overlooking the pool area. The room decor is pretty much as shown in the photos. Not luxurious, but more than adequate and very clean. The one issue we had was no water for a shower (on the 3rd floor) a couple times, but we just waited and tried again later. There is a beach bar immediately next door, seems like part of the same property really. Great bartenders and swings! The two kayaks provided were great. The beach was raked of seaweed and free of trash. Water entry is fairly sandy, not as rocky as some beaches in the area. Good for swimming and kids digging and playing. We walked a long way barefoot on the beach. You can very easily snorkel right off the beach. You don't have to go all the way out to the reef. Just get out past where the waves break and sand covers things up and visibility clears. Look for the dark areas which are large clumps of coral where the fish hang out. This is a good central location for driving to Tulum, Akumal Bay, the numerous cenotes and adventure parks. But we didn't want to go anywhere else.

Room Tip: Beachfront condos amazing view. Hotel rooms on the back overlooking the pool.

My wife and I just returned from a great week at Villas DeRosa Resort. If you're looking for a big resort with an all-inclusive option and excessive pampering, this place isn't for you. This resort is really best classified as a quaint and quiet hotel. They have a kitchen, but no restaurant. There is no bar, but there is the Beach Bikini Bar next door. The rooms are big enough, but far from luxurious. Simply put, this is a small resort, but provides a great, quiet get away, with no schedules, no hassles and is sitting on one of the most beautiful beaches we have had the privilege of holidaying on! The reef is just off the beach with great snorkelling, and Villas DeRosa has wave boards and kayaks for your enjoyment in the beautiful Caribbean Sea.

The pay as you go food service was delicious. You have the choice of being served lunch on the beach, a hearty breakfast at the 'Poolside Cafe' or room service for an authentic Mexican supper. We took advantage of grabbing the Collectivo on the highway and catching a ride for only 50 pesos for two into the Pueblo of Akumal to grab some fruits, snacks and beverages for our stay. We still grabbed a few drinks and a couple of meals at the Bikini Beach Bar adjacent to the hotel's beach and enjoyed the local flavour of the residents of Adventura Akumal.

We advise that anyone going to Villas DeRosa ask them to line up Cancun Valet to transport you to and from the Cancun Airport for easy travel back and forth. It cost us $165 for the round trip. Our room was beside the pool and on one evening we experienced a late night 'debate' that kept us awake for a couple of hours longer than we desired. We suggest requesting a room away from poolside.

But aside from that, this vacation was plainly about as perfect as we could hope and we will be back again!

We upgraded to an oceanfront condo. Best thing we could've done. The view, location and wonderful people made for an excellent vacation. The food is good and it is a bonus to have the little bar right on the premises. We enjoyed our stay and would go back again.

Room Tip: Oceanfront condo is the best,
