We came to Akumal for my brothers wedding. 40+ guests were able to attend and it was beautiful. The employees at the resort were so friendly and welcoming. I would have to definitely thank Sintia for being so welcoming to my entire family, even my 3 year old niece who can be shy at times. Sintia made sure all of...

We had a penthouse and the room was fantastic. It was two levels. The lower was the living quarters with a small balcony. Upstairs was a private deck with spa. The view at the penthouse was wonderful. The drinks and food were great. Tipping is encouraged and personal attention by bartenders or servers is evident based on the amount you...

Our Christmas vacation to Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort was really, really wonderful. I especially enjoyed Vinyasa flow yoga with Edam in the mornings.

I just returned from 12 days at ABR. The view from the yoga studio is amazing and it was a joy to do two or three yoga classes a day with Hiram!

We visited ABBWR from Dec13th-Dec18th. Best thing about this resort is that it's literally on the beach. Just about everything is steps away from the beach. All buildings are ocean front. Bldgs 1 and 2 are set farther back relative to Bldgs 3 and 4 which are almost on the beach. Good things: - Location/Beach. Amazing views and great quick...

We arrived as a family of four with one 3 year old and one baby so we wanted a clean, safe and well organised resort that would give us an easy and relaxing holiday.

We visited Akumal Bay Resort during the Christmas break. In general, we had a great time. The resort is clear and relatively small (300 rooms). We had a room on the ground floor in building 1. The room was spacious and we had an outside jacuzzi. Unfortunately, we had many musquitos in our room. A nice feature of the resort...

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
