It is a landmark villa in Akumal and one of the largest villas with over 4,000 square feet of living space. It is located on Yalku lagoon which is like an enormous outdoor aquarium - GORGEOUS view! You can jump right into the lagoon from your back yard, or you can jump right into the fabulous waterfront swimming pool. There is also a private "beach" area to get that suntan you just have to take home with you!
Perfect for a families and friends getaway!

The villa has a huge living room/dining room area with a cathedral ceiling and an adjoining fully equipped, industrial sized kitchen. The combined living/dining rooms provide enough table seating for up to 12 people. Miguel, Azul Riviera's caretaker, is a superb cook and can provide breakfast and dinner for up to 12 people. There are two outdoor palapas - a large one for entertaining with a wet bar, tables and chairs - the other is on the lagoon with lounge chairs.

Azul Riviera has four air conditioned bedrooms with LOTS of beds and three bathrooms. The master bedroom is upstairs with a view of the lagoon, a king-size bed and a huge, private outdoor sun deck. The two downstairs guest rooms both have king sized beds and lofts for children which contain 2 twin beds. Extra sleeping arrangements include a double sofa bed in one downstairs bedroom, a single day bed in another as well as a single day bed in the observation room. The new children's room is downstairs and has a double bed. The bathrooms are all enormous and offer a lot of privacy. There is a Jacuzzi tub in the downstairs bath.

Maid service is provided six days per week and for a small, extra charge, the caretakers can cook meals for you in the villa. There is also an incredible observation room on the third floor with a 365 degree view of the lagoon, jungle and ocean. It's also equipped with a day bed for sleeping.

"Beautiful House on the Lagoon
We visited this property with my siblings and their families and couldn't have enjoyed our stay more. There were 14 people in our party ages 4 months to 37 years old and each of us had a once in a lifetime experience. The property has its own private entrance to a lagoon off the back of the house with protected snorkeling which everyone enjoyed. Miguel and his family were attentive to our every need and for a small additional charge prepared amazing food several of the days (I highly recommend employing this service as the food was exceptional). Their efforts helped make our stay truly memorable. Thank you for letting us stay in your amazing home and we hope to be back soon.

"Awesome week with family
We are frequent visitors to the Yucatan and to the Caribe. This house in Akumal is absolutely among the very best of our lodgings anywhere in the Yucatan. Miguel & Ligia (house managers) are most competent, delightful, and have enough English skills to ease things along. Yal Ku laguna is a very short private walk away from the house. If you enjoy Mayan cuisine at all, ask Miguel to prepare some meals - he is an expert chef. If Maya cuisine does not suit you, there is a very good (fresh pasta) Italian restaurant no more than 100 meters away. The neighborhood is quiet even though close to the tourist entrances to Yal Ku laguna. We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary here with our "kids", their spouses, and two grand-children. We recommend highly!"

"Perfect place for a fantastic family gathering!
Everyone hopes to return again! Although we left for some tours, we would all have happily stayed on the property all week without feeling the need to leave. Plenty of large gathering places either indoor or outdoor, and 3 bedrooms were very spacious. Outdoor living was the favorite of all with a huge palapa covering plenty of eating areas (with easy kitchen access) and hammocks; enjoyed the large swimming pool (although cold water) and loved the easy access to snorkeling in Yalku Lagoon. Snorkeling tours come there all day long, but all we had to do was climb down the ladder to enjoy the "aquarium"(especially before and after tour hours, giving us our own private lagoon). Our vacation for 12 could not have been better. Miguel and Lijia were very friendly and helpful and kept the place in excellent order with cleaning service every day but Sunday. They also fixed a wonderful Mexican feast for our family. Beach is in walking distance, but better beaches are a short drive. The little community of Akumal is quaint. Takes about 10 minutes from Hwy 307 to the house. Easy access to Tulum, Playa del Carmen or tours to other ruins. Authentic Mexican tile/décor. Drawbacks would be no laundry and the toilet plumbing is different from US as no paper waste can be flushed. We will not hesitate to book again, and have already recommended this house to many other travelers. "

"Wonderful Vacation
We like this house because it is directly on the lagoon and is a great size for 2 - 3 families. The outdoor area is spacious and relaxing and the pool is a good size. Since our last visit four years ago, a tour company has bought the house next door. From 9 - 5 there are a lot of vans coming in and many people in the lagoon. But before and after those times, you have the amazing snorkeling in the lagoon all to yourself. The kitchen in the property is well-equipped and the caretakers are amazing. Definitely recommend that you have them cook at least one meal for you - delicious!"

"Neighboring Tour Company has ruined this rental
This was our second stay at Villa Azul Riviera and I am sad to say our last. The Villa is lovely and staff remains fantastic, however, since our last visit, the neighboring house was purchased by a tour company. The beeping of the tour buses reversing begins at 7:30am and continues all day. The privacy once felt on the property is now gone. The once peaceful lagoon is now crowded and I shudder to think of the impact on the fragile eco-system of the lagoon. I feel sad for the owner of this home and all the neighbors as this tour company has definitely negatively impacted the entire Yal Ku area."

"Azul Riviera
Much to our dismay our house was right next to a commercial snorkeling company; buses coming and going all day, hundreds of people, YalKu lagoon being ruined, no privacy. They took a beautiful home, Casa Delfin, and destroyed it and the quiet neighborhood. This NEVER should have been allowed and the lagoon will be destroyed within a year. I feel badly for the owners of Azul Riviera because the home is beautiful and the caretakers are awesome and have been there for 18yrs. Miguel & Ligia are wonderful people and excellent cooks! The home is beautiful and we've been coming for many years but I'll never come back to Akumal because the lagoon area has been permanently altered."

"Azul Riviera Review
We stayed at this house over Christmas week 2016. We enjoyed thenlagoon right ourltnfrontt, with lots of tropical fish to see. It was a luxury to have private access so we could snorkel early or late and avoid the crowds from nearby snorkeling operations. The house itself was large, beautiful and well cares for."

"Paradise in Mexico!
Villa Azul Riviera was much better than expected by the photos. The location at Yal-Ku Lagoon meant many hours of backyard swimming and enjoyment. The children loved the pool and outdoor beach area. The kitchen was large and perfect for cooking many meals. Miguel and Ligia kept the villa clean and in good working condition. We would love to return."

"Villa Azul riviera was great!
Stayed here with five adults, three teens, two kids and a toddler. We all had a fantastic time. So much to do around Akumal. Great family spot."

"Paz y comodidad absolutas. Excelente villa. Súper recomendable.
La casa está en perfecto estado, es evidente que es cuidada con mucha atención y constancia. La distribución es perfecta. Es lo suficientemente amplia como para convivir en familia, o en grupos, e incluso como para que cada quien tome su espacio a solas. Nosotros sólo éramos seis, pero es suficientemente grande como para 2 ó 3 familias.
La alberca está en una profundidad perfecta para niños y es bastante amplia. La laguna es divina, me pareció que es la zona de la laguna que mejor visibilidad tiene. Hay un acuario cristalino y colorido en el patio trasero. Hacer esnorkel ahí brinda mucha paz. El equipamiento de la cocina es súper completo, no le falta nada.
La playa cercana, donde está el restaurant LolHa es preciosa, fácilmente se pueden ver tortugas y mantarrayas.
Es todo mucho más fácil y barato si traes carro, porque las tiendas y la playa que más vale la pena sí están un poco lejos. Sin embargo, Miguel, el encargado de la casa, puede resolverlo todo, él y su esposa tienen una actitud maravillosa, súper amable, con muy buen modo para cualquier cosa que se les pida.
Estuvimos tan felices que ya estamos planeando nuestra siguiente temporada ahí. Ahora más larga. "

"Azul Riviera
We had a wonderful relaxing stay at Azul Riviera in Akumal Bay. It was a great layout for our extended family stay. We could be together or have space to ourselves with all of the different areas of this property. We have been coming down to the Akumal/Tulum area for the past 15 years and this is the first time we have had comfortable beds and pillows! Our A/C went out in one of the bedrooms the first night and Miguel was right on it! It was replaced that same day! It was basically ant free(we have had problems with that in the past, as well). Beach towels, pool toys, life vests, beach toys and some snorkel gear were available to us on the property. The description was as described online, but outdoor area is larger and more private than we expected....which was a big plus. This is the most time we have spent just being at the rental house and we weren't even right on the ocean. It was nice to be on the lagoon this time, we had our own private access and it wasn't nearly as windy!"

"Wonderful stay!
We just returned from an amazing trip to Akumal! Miguel and his family were very accommodating and kept the house spotless. We rarely left the "compound" as there was so much to do between the pool, private cenote, lagoon, palapa, and spacious house. Highly recommended!"

"A Spectacular Family Getaway!
We all arrived from the corners of Canada, a family of eleven ranging from 9 years of age to 74 years young and this place was perfect for all of us!
The location on the lagoon was second to none for the snorkelling enthusiasts that we are and the house is huge so that we never felt on top of one another.
Miguel, the caretaker, and his family are wonderful! The place was very clean and he was helpful and courteous with our questions. On our last night we had them prepare us dinner - chili rellenos and beef fajitas - delicious!
We rented a van through the property management company and all went smooth, pick up and drop off.
We commented that we felt like we were on "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous"....the trip was wonderful!

"Great family vacation
We have been to Akumal for vacation with our sons and their families 4 times now and always want to stay on Yal kul lagoon. The area is breath taking. The places we have stayed before have become too small since family just keeps expanding but we found Azul Riviera to be perfect for our family of 12. The younger kids and adults loved it for the spaciousness. We didn't feel like we were on top of each other and there was always some place to go for some quiet time. The caretaker did a very nice job. Will definitely be our choice for our next trip.

"3 Master Suites with extra beds as well
We love Yal-Ku lagoon, it's the perfect place for younger children to learn to snorkel. This home is located with its own private access to Yal-Ku lagoon, but that's just the tip of the iceburg as to the amazing amenities this house holds. We stayed for a week with our adult children and all of our grandchildren. There was room for several more adults or children as well. The outdoors includes a courtyard dining area, a huge covered dining area with ceiling fans and hammocks; further down the path is the pool followed by the giant built-in beach/sandbox. Past the sandbox is a private cenote, and finally, access to Yal-Ku lagoon. The house itself is laid out well with 2 master suites and a spare bedroom on the first floor, a master suite on the second floor, and an observatory room with a single bed on the third floor. The main floor includes a spacious well-stocked kitchen, and a great room that includes a dinner table with seating for 10-12 open to a family area including TV with cable service and wi-fi. The caretaker stays in the front casita and comes in daily with continental breakfast and cleans the home. We hired them for a few dinner meals as well and the food was delicious! Super friendly and very flexible. Our vacation was truly a vacation without the need to clean or cook, but just relax and enjoy the beauty of the area or go out and explore the Yucatan. DON'T RENT A CAR THROUGH THE AGENCY, though. Use the internet to rent your vehicle!!"

"Great Place to Stay for Larger Groups/Excellent Location!
We had a an extended family gathering and this place was perfect for are group of 14! So much room and plenty of beds. But the best part is its location right on the lagoon. The snorkeling was awesome! It is in the back entrance to the lagoon where the fresh water spring and the salt water meet. So many more fish in this area as opposed to where the bay comes in. Also much calmer water and less salty with better clarity for snorkeling. Short walk to Half Moon Bay for a different type of snorkeling so see coral, stingrays, and turtles. Miguel is an excellent manager right on the property to help with anything needed. Location was close to Playa and a short drive to Tulum ruins with many beautiful cenotes nearby for another great experience. We also chartered a boat in Aventuras and caught 6 beautiful Mahi-Mahi that we had for 2 dinners for 14 people! Nice size pool and great place for lounging near the lagoon. Plenty of Iguana friends to keep us entertained as well! Great place to stay! "

"Beautiful house! The whole family loves it!
It was a beautiful villa, the grounds and landscaping was gorgeous. Loved the convenience of the lagoon in the backyard. We had eleven family members that were completely happy with the villa. The groundskeepers were great and very helpful. We had them cook for us and It was great. Should have done it more often. "

"A dream vacation for those who likes to snorkel.
It was a blast !!!
From the first contact of , and all the help we received from Martina, through entire booking process - It was very pleasant experience. Location of the Villa is unbeatable !!! You get your private access to lagoon, where we spend most of the time snorkeling. Miguel & his family deserves a 5 stars for keeping the property clean through your entire stay. Plus he prepares a very delicious dinners - very recommended, to use him at least once during your stay & have a dinner at home. You can walk to few of the local restaurants, and even to the beach - but renting a car recommended. Bedrooms are nice & well air-conditioned, but who cares about the bedrooms & living space of the villa, when you have such a beautiful outdoor space, where we spend most of our time. We would definitely come back. Akumal & Villa Azul - we already miss you !!!!

"Spring Break
This vacation exceeded our expectations, we loved every minute. We had a group of 13 (3 families) and the house easily accommodated us. The care takers were wonderful, we had them prepare two dinners and they were our favorite meals of the week. Being on the lagoon was unbelievable, being able to jump in and snorkel at will was amazing. I was concerned about being a little further out from the beach/downtown area, but we walked in daily and it was not a issue."
Apr 20, 2015 - Mike & Kay W., Chanhassen ,, MN

The location on the lagoon was perfect and Miquel impeccably cleaned and maintained the house, garden and pool. The living and dining area was a hodge podge of furniture and the stove needed to be lighted manually."

"Our August 2008 Akumal Vacation
The day we arrived the lights in swiming pool were not working and we did not get them fixed till Monday, the grill does not work properly and is not charcoal is gas. My causin Inrid Boyes rented Aurora so e got the opportunity to compare level of service from they recieved from the people in chargeand theirs was EXCELLENT, they even got a courtsey dinner before they left. In our case the owner came to introduce her self and offer to come back to take us to swim to her house the following day never called or show, we ask them to cut some cocos and never brought them. "

These properties are targeted by robbers around the area. When we were there, the house next door was almost robbed by three individuals. The property manager was careless about our situation and we are now disputing the charges. Its is a shame that such a beatiful place does not have the proper security. They all know there that there is a big issue with security in that area!"

"Awesome Azul Riviera
Great location -- The Yal-ku lagoon is much better than described. Being able to jump in at any time is a great treat. Do it early morning or late afternoon when crowds are minimal. There is plenty of space in the villa and having a pool was also very nice for the kids.
Akumal location is ideal to explore other parts of Riviera Maya -- you definitely need a car.
Miguel & his wife are a delight and unbelievable cooks, definitely better than most of the local restaurants and/or what we could cook ourselves.
The only caution I would have is with the directions on how to get there. We ended up coming it at night and the directions weren't geared to handle that. The guard in Akumal center threw us off."
May 19, 2008 - , Carlisle, MA

"Azul Riviera
We stayed in August 2007. It was HOT! Our ONLY complaint is that they don't make air conditioning anywhere in the world that can handle that heat! Now for the good stuff.... All in my family stated this was perhaps the best vacation ever. Miguel, our property manager and cook, made everything perfect for us. His flan is awesome, and he will help in any way. His English understanding is very good. Without a doubt, the best part about the property is bordering the Yakul (? spelling) lagoon. We just dropped right in (brought our own snorkeling equipment). The fish throughout the lagoon were more beautiful than those I saw when I went diving. Truly incredible. You are also within easy driving distance of either local eco-park, and also nearby ruins. We had a great time, worth every penny."
