This is beautiful resort, with exceptional staff, excellent food and one of my favourite beaches. Take advantage of all the activities: the activities staff are warm, friendly and enthusiastic. Highly recommend a massage at the spa. And let Abel the Orchestra Man one man band play for you when he comes by -- he's quite a musician!

Akumal Bay deserves an excellent score of 90 out of 100 rating in my opinion. I personally don't like the 4/5 stars since it doesn't reflect my love for this place but there are some areas that this gem of a property can be polished to perfection. First about my background. I'm from the midwestern USA, mid 40s, I travel...

Great location, great service, extremely friendly staff ... can't wait to vacation here again. Peak : snorkeling with sea turtles right off resort beach. I would recommend avoiding the annoying timeshare reps, and take excursion s on your own as opposed to through the resort you will save a lot of money.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the ancient language of the Mayas, long before Cancun, there was a magic place called Akumal "Place of Turtles". Between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, Akumal Bay - Beach & Wellness Resort offers one of the best beaches anywhere, with almost a mile of white sandy powder beach, world-class snorkeling with sea turtles and top diving with a great variety of life that thrives within the live coral reef just steps from our guest room. The relaxed atmosphere in Akumal captivates the spirit of a laid back Mayan Riviera beachside town. Akumal Bay - Beach & Wellness Resort offers a truly unique experience for guests seeking the best possible beach vacation. All guest rooms are located in 4 buildings within steps of the ocean and feature breathtaking views of Akumal Bay. With the convenience of an All-Inclusive, we provide our guests with a sophisticated simplicity and friendly service in the intimate atmosphere of a small resort. ... more   less
