We have just arrived from a wonderful week. We feel like we were on a wellness retreat because of the yoga classes we received from Hiram and Claudio, the sauna and the excellent food. They were such GREAT yoga classes. amazing teachers! we love you Hiram! I did not practice yoga before and almost became an addict to the morning... More

Resort is beautiful and clean and well maintained. Staff obviously works hard to keep it that way. The staff are friendly and helpful. Miguel at the tour desk was wonderful and had some great recommendations. He was also very helpful in trying to get our shuttle to the airport changed since we had a flight change. The beach is okay...... More

We just returned on April 28, 2015. We cannot wait to go back!! Yes, we can sit and pick apart a few things, but why when there were so many excellent things to enjoy. The employees surpass themselves. Friendly and go well beyond. Explained we had a severe nut allergy and it was sent to all areas of the resort... More

Just returned last night from a wonderful vacation at Akumal Bay. I had a great time, very relaxing, just what the doctor ordered after a long, cold & snowy Canadian winter. I have to agree with many of the other reviews on here. The snorkelling was great, saw many turtles, barracudas sting rays, and eagle ray and the most beautiful... More

We stayed for our second time April 18-26. I know the title is confusing, so let me explain. The check in was the fastest we have ever received at a resort. They were ready for us and got us our room immediately. The room however was a huge disappointment. They gave my wife and I a room with two beds... More

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
