Just returned from a fabulous 2 week vacation at Akumal Bay Beach & Wellness Resort, from April 2 to 16, 2015. This resort is small, very well situated right on the beach, with a view of the beach and ocean everywhere. Our room was facing the ocean in building 2 (penthouse suite 2310) and everything was close by. A great... More

We just returned from Akumal Bay. What a great resort. Exactly how they should be laid out. Everything near and facing the water. Constant breeze was great. The pools, the bars, most restaurants all right by the water. This also made for a very short beach. Wide property, but as I said a short beach, so you're lounging literally feet... More

Check In: When we first arrived, our room wasn’t ready yet, so we changed into bathing suits, and hit the beach & pool…..of course with a few cocktails mixed in! We went back around 3:30 and they put us in building 1 on the 3rd floor. Unfortunately, our room was behind many trees, and had (zero) view of the ocean.... More

I've reviewed ABBR a number of times (5 previous times) and still love it here since the renovation. We returned in late Feb. 2015 for 2 weeks. As a consumer, the increase in cost ...is well worth it. This special little hotel still retains its own lovely Mexican charm even with all the excellent changes. ABBR had to do something... More

Great beach, great snorkeling. This resort has a beautiful location. The staff were friendly and quick with service almost the entire time. The food was good, never had a bad meal. The two staff members Sintia and Samuel were especially friendly and fun to be around! Hola Sintia! Hola Samy! Oh, and we got a new towel creature made every... More

We booked at ABR for our honeymoon. We were there for 7 days and are already dreaming of our return. The staff was friendly, the service was exceptional, and the food was pretty great too! We had one incident that we ended up speaking with Emmanuel (guest services manager) about and he was absolutely incredible! You would never get customer... More

The snorkeling was good. Pretty crowded in the turtle area. The beach was kept very clean . The rooms we clean, roomy. Beware of drinking any water that is not bottled , 3 out of our party of 4 ended up sick on day 3 and 4 of our 6 day trip. Buy extra water! Don't even use the water... More

Third visit April 6-13, first time to bring both kids (age 11 and 6). Everyone had a great time. Yoga is great, views are great, beach is fantastic for long walks or snorkelling or paddleboarding, pool area is great for kids aged 3 and up. We mostly ate poolside or buffet due to kids being picky eaters, made-to-order pasta at... More

We just spent Easter week at ABR and it was paradise as always, but even better than before. My family of 5 has been coming to this resort for 5 years now and this was our first time seeing all the changes made with the recent renovation. For those of you who are regulars, you will not be disappointed with... More
