About Tony DeRosa

Nancy and Tony DeRosa came upon Akumal in 1983. They fell in love with the area and scuba diving. In 1985 they designed and built a duplex on this very site. During construction of the building, they discovered the magnificent underwater cave systems in the area and their lives would be forever changed. Deciding to stay in Mexico full time, they rented out the second condo to visiting cave divers and continued to explore the underwater cave systems. Exploration was in full swing, and more and more divers requested to stay with the DeRosas. By the mid 1990's, property next door was purchased and a six condo building was constructed. By then more people were discovering the beauty of the area....not just divers. In the late 1990's another property was purchased, adding another building with 6 more condos and a pool.........all properties are directly on the beach! Soon a four lane highway was completed from Cancun to Tulum and many large all inclusive hotels started to populate the area. Villas DeRosa remains a small family owned and operated resort located on a beautiful beach isolated from the impersonal world growing up around them. Enjoy a simpler time on a beautiful private beach when you stay at Villas DeRosa.

Why Tony DeRosa chose Quintana Roo

Villas DeRosa is a small family owned and operated resort with amenities that will make your vacation memorable.

We have two condo buildings, with a total of 12 beach front condos. All condos have private terraces overlooking the beach, living room, dining room, full kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. Sliding Glass doors and windows in the living room give you a full view of the beach and ocean from your condo. There is a private swimming pool, beach bar, and restaurant with a wonderful food menu. For adventure, the Aquatech Dive Center is on site and specializes in open water diving, cenote diving, and snorkeling tours. We can also arrange deep sea fishing for game fish with a boat directly on the beach by your condo. Nearby you will find the Mayan Ruins, swim with the dolphin programs, several theme & water parks, sailing, and more.

Villas DeRosa is the perfect location for you to enjoy yourself on the beautiful Mexican Caribbean......whether you choose to relax and sun on the beach or poolside, enjoy cocktails, eat fantastic local food specialties or continental menu or adventure out to explore this magnificent area, Villas DeRosa is the perfect location!

What makes this condo unique

Step out of your condo directly onto the sand and enjoy the beautiful Caribbean Sea. Let Villas DeRosa become your 'Home on the Beach' where you can eat, live, relax, and play!

Spectalular Caribbean Sea Beachfront Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful family owned resort for 4 days after a week in Playa Del Carmen... getting the best of both worlds on our vacation. The view from our second floor 1 bedroom was absolutely incredible!... probably the best "Wow" view we've ever experienced when your first enter the condo! Nice murals and Yucatan style furnishings and details made it very unique! We found the Villas DesRosa to be a perfect place if you've travelled and experienced resorts and all-inclusive, and want to do your own thing with the beach and water... there is also a diving centre as part of the resort. The condo was very clean and bright although somewhat dated (not a problem for us!) and the basic kitchen served us well. We made some of our own meals (bring your condiments and spices) and we alternated with meals from the awesome Beachfront Bar and Kitchen. The bed was awesome (recently new), and the mural in the bedroom spectacular! There was a very nice pool which we never used because we spent all our time under the beach palapas, sipping cool beers! There was always a beach breeze (a little more than usual because the recent Costa Rica hurricane had just passed) and the waves higher that normal as a result... Snorkelling is right out in front or down the beach....The bedroom is air-conditioned and does not have windows (not a problem) but we only used it the first night there... after that we left the balcony screen open and had the sound of the surf and the breeze soothe us to sleep! Noel the day manager was very helpful and friendly, as were all the staff we encountered. Charlie at the Beachfront Bar was great with his service and personality! The food from the kitchen was excellent and better that many of the meals we had in Playa Del Carmen, which were pretty outstanding! The location is very soothing and restful, and walking the beach is great! You are right next to some major expensive resorts, and share the same sand and water!! Having a car is recommended to get there but taxi's can be ordered from the resort staff or can get you there from CanCun or elsewhere... We travelled to the Coba Mayan ruins, an awesome day trip, and left the Tulum ruins for another time...Booking was easy and we thought the rates very reasonable..... Villas DesRosa is a Caribbean jewel of a place!

Great stay at Villas DeRosa

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villas DeRosa was AWESOME! These folks have been a part of the Akumal community for way over 20 years and they have remained a great destination for all that time for alot of reasons. Great accommodations, our roomy second floor accommodation provided great views and good ocean breezes. And the fully equipped kitchen was really handy. Excellent food service prepared to request and served in your room, the beach or the pool. The staff was very customer focused and helpful. I have enjoyed diving with their dive professionals over the years and it is hard to beat the convenience of the onsite dive shop. And did I mention the great Beaches?

Villas DeRosa is without question one of the best value accommodations on the Yucatan.
