Personal Chef Provided by Akumal Villas

Reserve a Personal Chef to Cook for You on Vacation

Some of the villas include complimentary service in the rental rate, others are hired separately. Even if your villa does not include complimentary service, you can still enjoy a delicious and authentic dinner prepared and served in your villa. Depending on your needs you can hire a cook part time or for the entire week. Unless included in the rental rate, arrival night dinners are not available.


Otherwise, when you want the cook to prepare a meal, please let the manager or maid know at least 24 hours in advance. On the day you want the meal, you will need to give them the money to purchase the groceries and payment in advance for preparing the meal, serving and cleaning up.

Other Things to Know About Akumal Villas Cook Services

Some homes have their own cooks (Caretakers) and prices may vary slightly. Please contact your Akumal Villas agent for villas that have cook services. The prices given are accurate as we can ascertain. Food and transportation will be extra. Upon arrival, you will need to speak with caretakers about your menu selections and payment.


We don´t do arrival dinners because, often when guest arrive later than planned, food becomes cold and the cook has to wait until late to be paid for the services. We do not ask the cook/staff/managers/villa owners to front grocery money reimbursement when guest arrive. We recommend to guests that they choose from some of excellent restaurants near their villa. 


We would happy to provide a list with a short description about each.

If you wish to eat out at any time you just let the chef know in advance but the package price is the same. They prepare, cook, serve and clean up after each meal. If you wish to reserve we send you a secure online invoice to pay the 10% deposit and then put you in touch with the chef so that you can start meal planning.


Availability is not guaranteed so early booking is recommended especially over the Holidays. Please contact your Akumal Villas agent if you have any special requests or wish to design your own package.
