Why so darn good? "We stayed at Vista del Mar in January 2009. The place is very laid back and simple with a beautiful view. We went for a short trip to do some SCUBA diving. We were lucky because the Akumal Dive Adventures and its wonderful dive master Jose were right next door. So was the amusing the Buena Vida restaurant. Since we were diving we paid $81 per night for the room, an incredible bargain."
Location: "Beach Front on a half moon bay."
Rooms: "Small, bright, and cleaned daily."
Food: "You can get a "Modified American Plan" with breakfast and dinner each day; we asked for (and got) a rate for just breakfast each day. There was a choice of several options, all quite yummy – including eggs made to order and fresh fruit."
Vibe: "Laid back."
Keep in Mind: "The beach was lovely and cleaned daily, but the entrance is rocky."
