We love Turtle Bay Cafe! And their Happy Hour makes it a very economical way to have a delicious dinner. We try and arrive between 5:00-6:00 when beer and certain mixed drinks are 25-35 pesos. During happy hour all the tacos and sourdough flatbreads (which are large enough for two to share and even have leftovers) are on special. In... More

Cute place, lovely breakfast, friendly staff. The juices, smoothies, and bloody Mary's (according to my husband) were all delicious! So were all the breakfast dishes we had.

My hubby and I had lunch at Turtle Bay today and it was great! We spent the morning snorkelling at Yal-Ku and after reading many reviews at home decided to eat at Turtle Bay. It exceeded our expectations. I had the chicken fajitas with rice, beans and home made corn tortillas. The best fajitas I've ever had! Hubby had chicken... More

Everytime i have been here, the food has been great. Everytime. Staff is great. Just try to stay away from the ice cream or you may find yourself there daily.

Was a bit tricky for me to find, as it was my first visit to Akumal, and the bakery is sort of tucked away in a comer, but people were friendly and helped with directions. THE best homemade ice cream! Worth getting a large container to take home. Coconut ice cream is a must try, with chunks of shredded coconut... More

We are locals, usually with many guests. Turtle bay bakery is always in our list for Saturday lunch. Whoever created that menu and recipes must know us really well -- always respectful, generous and scrumptious. I usually start with a gecko juice cocktail (health drink of green chaya mixed with pineapple.) Our guests are happy with the fish tacos, grilled... More
