Just returned from a week vacation here. Check in was a breeze and the room was very nice. I had a junior suite in building 4. The room had a very comfy king size bed, modest furnishings, nice bathroom and the shower has fantastic water pressure (some resorts dont). The room also had a lovely ocean view and jacuzzi on...

My oldest daughter and her family had gone to this resort a few years before, and enjoyed the experience so much, that we thought it would a good idea to go with our whole family...11 of us in total. It was the right decision. Our room in Building 3, had a magnificent view of the ocean and swaying coconut trees.... More

I recently visited Akumal for the second time, arriving with another 7 family members. I was very excited to share the experience with my loved ones as it was one of the most relaxing and memorable vacations I had ever had. From the moment we arrived at the resort there was an instant feeling of tranquility. I was very happy... More

My family and I just came home over a week ago from paradise (Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness resort). There were 11of us, and we could not have had a better time. The view from our room was absolutely stunning. Snorkeling with the turtles in the warm, blue waters was magical. Digging my toes in the soft, white sand and... More

This was our first time here and it did not disappoint. From the moment you enter the property, the staff welcomes you with smiles. The grounds are perfectly manicured and everything is very clean. We tried all the restaurants and the Japanese was our favorite. They were all decent and we did not eat at the buffets for dinner so... More

I'll start my review by saying I can't compare the newly renovated ABBWR to the old ABR. First impression was awesome open air lobby with a direct view of the ocean so far a plus. We stayed from May 16/15 to May 23/15 Check in was smooth our room wasn't ready since we were there before 3pm and they gave... More

Excellent resort! You're surrounded by beauty everywhere you look - the ocean, beach, palm trees, rooms, pools, food, it's all like something from out of a movie. Ofelia in the spa gives an outstanding therapeutic massage. Thanks Ofelia!

Last week my family and some friends stayed at this resort. Several of them had stayed at this location before. They were very impressed with the remodeling that had been done over the last 2 years. During my stay I enjoyed the hospitality of all the associates that worked at the resort. Very friendly and very eager to help. One... More

This resort was absolutely beautiful. The view of the ocean, the relaxed environment, the staff, the rooms, the pools and everything else in-between. I would recommend this place to anyone. I want to go back soooooo bad.

This is a great place for couples! There were 6 of us and it is safe to say we would go back. The staff was great! We loved Marbella in the lobby bar especially! Our room was great. We were on the bottom floor and walked right out to the beach and "boardwalk". The view was amazing. The outdoor beds... More
