“THE MOST AMAZING , BEAUTIFUL,FANTASTIC PLACE EVER!”
Reviewed 17 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We just returned from celebrating my 50th birhtday with 24 friends at Villa Bellamar. It could not have been more perfect. We had 12 couples, each had their own spacious room with a view to the ocean and pool.The beds were súper comfortable, TV, air conditioning ,safe in every room. The house was fantastic. It had a pool, jacuzzi, roof top that overlooked the ocean on all sides,its own beach, swim up bar at the pool and everything. The house comes with a chef who was fabulous. Every meal was delicious and he added his artistic special touch to make the presentation like a 5 star hotel. We hired a bartender and he was great too. The owner was abe to hook us up with a masseuse that came to the house when we wanted. It was like staying at the best 5 star hotel but BETTER! it would be a great place to go with families too. There was a ping pong table, and separate living áreas on every floor so you could go off and be alone or hang out with the gang. I cant wait to go back!!! Thank you Wilma, Manuelito, Jose and the rest of you for making this one of the best trips we have ever had!!!! See you again!

“What a fantastic place to stay”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This was a fantastic place to stay for a large group of people that travelled from around the world to be together for a week. It is a bit over an hour from Cancun Airport. The facilities and location were excellent. The Akumal Dive Shop was of great assistance in organising everything from airport transfers to diving and snorkelling trips. The Executive Chef and the local team took great care of us.

Liked best: The location was perfect and the facilities and accomodation exceptional.
Liked least: My only suggestion would be that the kayaks be replaced as they were damaged and took on water which made them difficult to paddle.

“Beautiful property, great staff, amazing wedding”
Reviewed 14 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

people found this review helpful

We were a group of 17 adults staying for 5 nights for my wedding at the beginning of January.

Property
Villa Bellamar is nothing short of amazing! During the drive from the highway to the villa through Akumal, I was wondering if the house would live up to the pictures (the other properties and hotels, although nice, are nothing like Villa Bellamar!). All of my worries disappeared as soon as our vans approached the house. Upon arrival, Helmie, the house manager was there to introduce himself, show us around the house, and introduce the staff. With a brief walk around, we quickly realized pictures don’t do the property justice - it’s even better!

Our group of 17 thoroughly enjoyed all of the amenities. The villa swallowed our group, giving us plenty of places to socialize, and also allowing for folks who wanted a little more privacy or time to themselves to have it. A few nice touches included the pool being beautifully lit at night, the staff didn’t hesitate to light tiki torches when we asked about mosquitoes, towel animals left in the bathrooms by housekeeping along with adorable sailboat tissue folds, pool toys and floats, the sound system (we connected via bluetooth since the system was for an older generation ipod with a connection we no longer have, and had music outside by the pool, under the terrace, and in the main living areas for a great party atmosphere). We particularly enjoyed the rooftop terrace in the evenings and the covered terrace next to the pool with the swim up bar (we spent a ton of time lounging on the furniture and hammocks next to the bar!)

Just something to know - we were visiting in January and had beautiful weather in the low 80’s during the day. Only the bedrooms in the house are air conditioned (by individual units in each room) and the other areas in the house definitely get warm during the day. A side effect of the heat and lack of air conditioning in common areas, and choice of tile floors in the home is very slick floors during the day which could be dangerous for children and/or the elderly especially with 4 flights of stairs without handrails.

Staff
The staff - also fantastic! For our size group, the house was staffed with two housekeepers, three to four cooks, two groundsmen, and we also opted to add a bartender for the length of our stay. They all even got into the spirit of our wedding with little gifts and surprises for us throughout our wedding day and night which we thoroughly enjoyed.

First the chefs - can’t say enough great things about Antonio’s crew. They went above and beyond for all of our meals leading up to the wedding (think adorable carvings on the buffet, artful presentations, huge spreads) and we also had them cater our wedding dinner. I can’t explain how they went beyond my expectations with presentation, attention to detail, flavor, and willingness to please. They did all of our grocery shopping and kept the bar fully stocked with all of our requests. We did run out of a beer a few times, but within an hour, more would show up. Antonio came each day with all receipts for the days purchases, and I’d reimburse him in cash. A few nitpicky things - Antonio would come to meet with me to iron out details for our menus, and I think sometimes those things were either not fully communicated or just not carried out by the cooks who were with us doing the actual preparation especially during our final day and a half after the wedding (I know we became spoiled in the days leading up to it!) Just an example - lunch the day after was supposed to be pork tacos and chicken quesadillas and ceviche, and we got chicken quesadillas, some little tuna fish sandwiches (never talked about tuna fish at any time), and no ceviche.

The groundsmen, Carlos and Aurelio, were also great. They washed down the area by the pool every morning, raked the beach, and kept all of the outdoor areas clean and tidy. The hot tub was more like a warm tub during our first day, and Aurelio quickly switched out the heating mechanism to fix it. By the end of our stay, also just a picky note, the hot tub water looked as if it definitely needed to be drained and refilled. A huge help for us - both Carlos and Aurelio volunteered to assist our wedding planner with endless details - setting up lights, lanterns, a bonfire - all things they certainly weren’t required to do but were happy to help with!

The housekeepers were always smiling and friendly - they’d come in each morning to clean, wash and replace towels, make beds in each room, etc. We did notice that sheets were not changed during our 5 night stay, but I’m sure that could be accommodated if requested.

Last, but certainly not least - our bartender Luis was worth every dollar! He kept the blender spinning with mango margaritas, muddled fresh mojitos - took care of each request, from morning to just after dinner each day.

Unfortunate final impression...
On our last morning, we could tell the staff had instructions to get us out and clean as soon as possible. Breakfast was pretty basic even though we asked and paid for a big spread because the cooks had instructions to leave a spotless kitchen as quickly as possible. We figured out that the owner had a photographer coming to take pictures of the house (not new guests coming). At 11:30, she showed up, didn’t introduce herself, and told me that check out time was at 11:00 AM (no one told us that - we would have been happy to make arrangements if we would have known). We let her know that our last van was coming at noon to take people to the airport (we’d be gone in less than 30 minutes) but she insisted that we all go upstairs and get out of the way for the cleaning crew to finish. Our fault for leaving late, but she could have handled that a little differently - especially since we felt like our trip was over with all of the cleaning and prep that was going on around us since 8:00 AM that morning. I would have just hoped for a better send-off, especially since we didn’t complain when she came the day of our wedding (didn’t introduce herself then either) and tried to blend in to take pictures of all of our decor and setup to use to further advertise and market her property.

Also something I have to note - about half of our group had stomach “issues” at some point during our stay. I have a feeling it’s just unavoidable with traveling to the area even though we took every precaution with bottled/filtered water for drinking, ice, cooking, tooth brushing, etc.

Summary….
Go! Villa Bellamar and its surroundings are gorgeous and the staff will leave you not wanting to return home to real life.
