Having been to ABR several times, we stopped in for a brief visit. We love the ambiance there, it's so peaceful and beautiful. We were also curious as to whether they are maintaining the five star rating they've received in the past. We weren't disappointed! Upon arrival, many staff remembered us and greeted us by name. The service, staff, management...

We liked it so much in 2016, we returned this past March. There are a lot of positives including: it is newly renovated and fresh, it has a nice beach including a great coral reef and several sea turtle sightings along with other fish. Every spot on this resort has an ocean view including every room. The jetted tub on...

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
