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

We were at this resort April 26-May 6 2015. The property is beautiful and much smaller than any other all inclusive resort we have stayed at. When we arrived, check in was quick and easy. They give you a woven bracelet instead of a wristband, which was a nice touch I think. We were upgraded to a Garden Room, which... More

I have been in many hotels in Cancun, Playa and Tulum. This one was simply excellent. Great food, great rooms and great service. Everyone very kind and smiling. I recommend it, especially for families.

My boyfriend and I just arrived back last night from our week vacation. It was his first time to Mexico but my 3. And by far this was the best resort I've been to. It was small but not too small. The snorkelling was amazing. 15 feet out you saw 3 turtles, Stevie Ray the sting ray and Barry the... More

My friend and I stayed at Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness the last week of April. We have been to Riviera Maya at least 4 times and have stayed at a couple mega resorts. I must say that this resort has the best view, best snorkeling, and the best customer service of any that I have been! It definitely exceeded... More

My family spent a wonderful relaxing week at this hotel. The service was top notch and all the staff was very friendly. The hotel and grounds are lovely, the beach and snorkeling are amazing. The quality of the restaurants and food are outstanding. We would definitely love to visit Akumal Bay Beach & Wellness Resort again in the future.

I traveled to Akumal Beach Resort in May 2015 for three night stay for a wedding. The resort is located about 90 minutes from Cancun International Airport, for that distance, i was expecting something spectacular, but I was mistaken. I booked for one person through Kayak for an all inclusive rate of $190 per night. Upon arrival, I was informed... More

My 9th visit, 1st since the renovation. GOOD JOB!! Stayed 10 days in a Garden Unit in Building 2 (formerly #5). Love the following: Rooms fresh and clean with a seating area, outside Muskoka chairs and a Jacuzzi tub (for one - but nice). Resort has lots of covered comfortable seating areas. Lots of palapas but not as shady as... More
