Beyond expectations describes our first visit to this beautiful all - inclusive. For the first time (10 visits to the Caribbean) we have zero complaints only compliments for this outstanding resort. The layout is amazing -we wanted something small (approx. 320 suites). There are 4 buildings - every one faces the ocean. The whole place is long and narrow -so... More

I hate to say how much I liked this place because I don't want it being over crowded in the future, but I loved it there . The staff were all incredible, helped us with booking an extra night, the food was great and the location unbeatable. Akumal Bay is an amazing place for snorkeling, the sandy grassy areas have...

If you're looking for a party hotel head to Cancun. The occasional music you'll hear is during the water work out but you are more than welcome to bring your own. At night, various bands play (one of them absolutely incredible - violin rock?). The place is outstandingly clean, refreshing with a minimalist design and somehow, almost every single room... More

From the moment we arrived Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness made us feel welcomed and valued! All the employees were very friendly and polite! Our room was perfect! The view was breathtaking and it was always VERY clean and fully stocked. The beach has sargassum when we visited, but the workers were very diligent about clearing it out. We didn't... More

We recently returned from an eight night stay, our fourth time at the resort (second time since the renovations). I can honestly say that this resort just keeps getting better and better. Upon check in we were pleased to discover we were upgraded to a penthouse suite. The room was spacious and the view was majestic. Miguel cleaned our room... More

If you are looking to party all night long, this is not the place! Newly remodeled, clean, amazing service, friendly and genuinely good people work there!! It is kid friendly, 60% of tourists were retired. Most comfortable bed I've ever slept in that wasn't mine!

January 25 - February 1st, 2016. My fiancée and I just returned from our week at Akumal Bay. We enjoyed our stay and found it to be ALMOST perfect. I would consider myself an experienced traveller having been to about 10 different all inclusive resorts in Mexico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic and Bahamas. I'll try to keep it concise with a...

My husband and I spent two weeks at the Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort from January 2nd, 2016 till January 16th, 2016. We have returned to this same area at least a dozen times over the past ten years, staying at different all inclusive resorts each time. We both felt that this resort was one of the very few...
