My trip to Ak'bol was followed by a trip to Paris. The whole time I was in Paris, I was thinking "the food is good here, but not as good as the food at Ak'bol." Healthy, tasty food. The best I have ever had. The pool was small, but perfect. If you wanted shade, you could have 100% shade. If... More

I stayed at Akbol in early April 2015, and overall it was an amazing experience! Property & Room Akbol is a beautiful property including the bar/restaurant, a beautiful dock (where all the yoga takes place), private lodging, and shared lodging in the "yoga barracks". My friend and I stayed in the barracks, which basically means we had our own private... More

Just got home from Belize, and I'm already missing my little island life. Ak'bol was the perfect beach paradise escape...north of San Pedro and away from the bustle of the beach town, yet still within walking distance, Ak'bol is a fantastic place to get away and just chill. Everything at the Soul Kitchen is delicious and fresh, morning yoga on... More

Stayed in the barricks and it was nice. plenty of space to practice yoga in it if you wanted. locked storage. Nice ventilation. Good food at the bar by the beach. Had two different excellant yoga teachers while I was there. One was the owner and the other one was from Chicago doing a week long seminar. You can go... More

Loved it! Breezy rooms, private deck/terrace, outdoor private shower and delicious homemade food at the outdoor bar/restaurant. The vibe of the place is perfectly balanced between yoga enthusiasts and travelers just looking for serenity. The place is right on the water and also has a lovely swimming pool. Yoga is available but that was not our intention of the stay.... More

The setting is unlike any I have ever experienced, the natural beauty and serenity of Belize and Ak’bol completely captured what I had imagined a yoga retreat to be like. I traveled to Ak’bol with a small group of women organized by a yoga studio in the US. Under the thatched roof hut at the end of the Ak’bol pier,... More

Although i did not stay here, I enjoyed visiting this spot for lunch and breakfast during my stay in Belize. Lunch is good, breakfast is great! The views and laid back atmosphere were very delightful. They also have a long dock that puts you right over the aqua blue carribean waters!

The shrimp curry is the best plate I had on the Island. The Buena Vista at Captain Morgan's is a lose second but DAMN!! This was a plate I will try to emulate at home. The cup of curry sauce I poured over my rice brought tears to my eyes. Wow. Thanks Tua & kitchen staff.

My party of four spent our first three nights of our trip at Ak'bol. After checking out the website and seeing the beauty of the resort, we decided to stay, I wish we hadn't. We rented two cabanas and they were great, staff was also great, but... the owner's were terrible. While Kirsten wasn't there during our stay, she was... More

I stayed a whole month in a dark room (like cave tubing :) in the barracks, and that was probably too long, but it makes you appreciate a bathroom and washing machine and LIGHT when you get home. However I enjoyed my stay because I needed a break from a hectic life and life was so simple here. I must... More
