Most of what I've read on the reviews are spot on target. You are exposed to a bit each review. I will do a pro and con list as I think it is easier to do that way. Pros: Getting into restaurants easy No real dress code ... did see flip flops and t-shirts in the only one that required... More

My wife and I recently returned home after a 1 week stay at the Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort. We have travelled often to the Riveria Maya region and this trip was one of our favorites. The beach is beautiful with snorkelling right off of the beach. The food at the buffet and the specialty restaurants was alway good.... More

My husband and I stayed at this resort towards the end of April for a total of 6 nights and we could not have been happier! We have stayed at several all inclusives and in Mexico several times and this ended up being the classiest all inclusive we've ever been to with understated elegance that was not in any way... More

No sooner we checked in and received our Welcome Drinks, a woman approached us trying to sell stuff. Very annoying. Never encountered this at other resorts. We had to tell her twice to go away. Like all places it had it's pros and cons. Pro's Snorkeling was fantastic, it's about 1/2km from building 4 part of hotel. Very clean resort,... More

My husband and I traveled to this report for our 25th wedding anniversary. We were there from April 8th until April 18th. We had been here 13 years ago and had the best vacation ever. We loved the simplicity of the resort and the snorkeling was beyond compare. We had requested builing 3 or 4 because we preferred the quiet... More

We have traveled to many countries over the years but we have always shied away from Mexico in light of the occasional unfavorable news of tourists falling victim to foul play and of police corruption. This time we took the leap and chose to go to Akumal Bay beach and wellness hotel in the middle of the Maya riviera. We... More

Since our vacations consist mostly travel through Europe, this gift my husband gave me for my retirement was one of the most relaxing vacations we've experienced. The Akumal resort is a true gem! The moment we arrived, we were impressed with the beautiful open air lobby with vast ceilings, lovely dark wood floors and lots of nice lounge seating to... More

We stayed in a penthouse suite in building 3 April 6th to 18th 2015. It was awesome. Comfortable and we had 2 chairs on our main balcony and 2 loungers and a hot tub on our penthouse balcony. The beach in front of building 3 and 4 is all coral so you need to bring water shoes but up by... More

The pros...great food, probably the best of any resort we have stayed at. The staff were all friendly and very helpful. Five minute walk down the beach to the small village with shopping. Snorkelling was good, but you must have water shoes to swim. The pools were great and never crowded. We travelled with Air Transat, but booked our trips... More

I got home yesterday from a week long vacation at Akumal Bay Beach & Wellness Resort. Overall it was great. The grounds were beautiful, the food was great and the staff was very attentive. We had a problem opening our safe in the room and called for assistance. Help arrived in less than 10 minutes. Wait staff worked up and... More
