Our second trip to this resort, wanted to last summer, but went to Jamaica. Missed Akumal! The hotel itself has expanded, we stayed in the newer building, ground floor, quick access to the beach on the north side of the property. Made life-long friend with our north life guard, Rana, an excellent watcher of the bay & all in it!... More

The best feature of this hotel is its beach and coral reef. The beach is gorgeous, white sand, aqua blue water - apparently one of the best in Mexico for snorkelling. We saw sea turtles almost every day! Room was a bit spartan, but everything (aircon, water, tv) worked fine. Great selection of cocktails !!! Snorkelling is very good !

I went with my uncle and my cousin as a type of relaxing boys getaway. We picked this place because the beach and snorkeling/diving had good reviews, and we wanted a chill resort. Having researched it on TripAdvisor, we wanted a room in building #2, preferably at the ground floor or a penthouse; it's right next to the lobby and... More

What is the the mot important thing in your vacation? - to get relaxed! In Akumal Bay the relax is complete and above. Since your arrival people know that you are tired. They meet you with a drink. If your room is not yet ready - they bring you to a place where you can eat and drink. There are... More

Horrible place. The beach is covered in seaweed, the food is hospitable, there's no entertainment; no shows. The accommodations are adequate at best, bad landscaping, watered down drinks, boring, cloudy pool.... I would rather stay home. There's nothing really I would say I liked about the resort. Even the wifi dos not work properly. I've been to a lot of... More

This is my second visit to this hotel, but the first under new ownership. Staff is very professional and the grounds are kept very clean. We paid extra for a room upgrade and were disappointed in being offered a king bed (travelling with a friend) right next door to construction of a new hotel next door (building 1). After a... More

They just went out of their way to make sure you feel fantastic. Pampered all around. The beaches are amazing, and the staff actually clean them every morning. The food was so good, the entertainment was great, and they made my cousin's wedding unforgettable. Don't miss this place!!
