We just got back from a fantastic week at ABBWR! I really cannot say enough wonderful things about this place. Upon arrival our group of six was kindly greeted with fresh margaritas and smiles. We arrived earlier than check-in but were able to enjoy lunch in the buffet and then took time to explore the grounds (and then a little... More

We read good reviews about this place and had high expectation. Everything was great except food. The location and room were amazing. I accidentally left my GoPro at bar and an honest waitress named Patricia Brandy picked it up and left at Lost-n-Found. Thanks again.

This is an excellent resort. We are repeat guests and think the size is perfect for a family with children (ours are 6 and 8). We love that it is locally owned and not a mega resort. We feel comfortable with our children staying with the excellent staff at the kids club (thanks Mirna) while we snorkel right off the... More

Arrived on July 19th for 1 week and everything was good. Very clean resort, Service was great every were, weather was just perfect. Only issue was the excessive sea weed but this is not the hôtels fault and they were trying very hard to give us space so that we could walk into the beach. Wifi was free and was... More

I went to Akumal Bay Resort in May when my sister was trying out resorts for her wedding. I loved it! It was clean, quiet and had the most amazing view. The beach is perfect, and it's a short walk down the beach to the town of Akumal. The rooms are very nice, though ultimately my sister ruled this resort... More

This is not fault of the hotel however you should be aware of this fact before going as I was looking for nice beach vacation and... More

My husband and I had our best vacation ever with our best friends at this beautiful, all inclusive resort. We are anxious to return and to bring our kids! Some highlights are incredible views no matter where your room is located, the BEST snorkeling I've ever done right in front of the resort, helpful and friendly staff, and delicious food... More

I was just at the hotel for the first time since the renovation and the upgrades are appreciated. Although I don't think I saw anyone use the jacuzzi tubs outside the rooms. It might have been better to spend that money on other things. I appreciate the addition of the gym and yoga studio! The staff is great at this... More

My hubby and I went here in June for a week to celebrate our 20 year anniversary. A co-worker was the one that told me about the area and after reading the wonderful reviews on TripAdvisor, we chose ABBWR and couldn't have been happier. Upon arrival, we were greeted with a delicious drink and led straight to our room. Check... More

We last visited the resort 3 years ago. This return trip saw a number of changes, some good, some not so good, some man made, some caused by nature. Our room was not ready when we arrived, but, after they learned that we were returning guests, we were assigned a concierge, Victor (with the Fidelity Members Club), who was awesome... More
