This is a very well-run establishment, with gorgeous rooms and landscaping. The rooms facing the beach are especially stunning, but any of the rooms in this place would put you much closer to the beach (the water is literally steps away) than any of the rooms at some of the bigger hotels (like the Grand Bahia, just down the beach); and the backfacing rooms look out onto a very tastefully done garden. The friendly owners live there themselves, and are very available for help or advice. You'd have to drive to Akumal (about 3 km, on the highway) for restaurants and shopping; Tulum and Playa del Carmen are very close by as well. The beach is quite nice, and away from the bustle of the bigger hotels.

This is truly one of those places that you're tempted not to tell anyone about because you're afraid word will get out. It is, quite simply, perfect. My wife and I stayed there for three days last November. From the moment we walked in the door of the apartment, we were instantly relaxed. We had the top floor suite, with a balcony looking down on the beach and the azure sea right outside. The suite was spacious, clean, well appointed and beautifully laid out, with tile counters, natural wood and a really great shower. The owners were courteous, helpful and unobtrusive. Whether it was because of the time of year or the financial collapse, we had the little stretch of beach and ocean outfront virtually to ourselves for most of the trip. Combine that with a friendly dive shop 50 yards down the road, and reef diving sites a few minutes offshore, and it made for a perfect mini-vacation.

The only downside is that, unless you're willing to pay bloated prices for mundane fare at the resort down the beach, finding a decent restaurant takes a little doing. There are some quite nice ones in the town of Akumal, less than 10 minutes away by car, but it's best to ask directions before you go. There is also a "restaurant" in the small hotel attached to dive shop, but it seems to open on an as needed basis and is not recommended.

An amazing place for a getaway. Located on the southernmost and most beautiful spot of Akumal beach, Villa las Brisas is the place to be. Beautiful, stylish condos, a neat and tropical garden and everything build in a mixture of Spanish and Mexican style. We stayed in the studio for 5 days before starting a round trip - and liked it so much that we returned some days later. This place is PERFECT and we loved everything about it. Kerstin and Horacio, the owners, are totally lovely and helpful. They make the place special by giving it the totally familiar atmosphere.

We are so glad that we found this place and we will definitely return.

Villa las Brisas is absolutely wonderful. Kerstin, the owner, is extraordinarily helpful and a geniunely nice person. The room was very nice and large and the grounds were beautiful (they had a fountain, gorgeous plants and flowers, and the beach was lovely). I can't recommend this place highly enough. If you want to get away-and not be surrounded by tons of other people, i.e. Cancun/Playa del Carmen- this is where you should go.
