We recently returned from a six night vacation with our 4 year old daughter from December 12-18. Our stay was a great experience. When travelling we look for a great beach and a decent room. We don't like crowds and want to enjoy the experience without a lot outside distractions. Welcome: We were welcomed with drinks to the main lobby... More

We enjoyed immensely the warm hospitality especially pool waitresses Mari and Patricia, and the Guest Relations managers Oscar and Emmanuel. Once construction is completed , this hotel will be a gem.George S

This review is for those who are still on the fence - to go or not to go. This place is awesome. It's still under construction. Looks like building 4 has the most rooms available. You will hear construction noise in your rooms, but who is sitting in the room in place like this.? Food: cooked in health in mind... More

We are repeat visitors to Akumal and the beach and the close proximity of the reef are the main reasons. This resort is undergoing a transformation and I have to say its been a delight. There are now 6 dining options and all the places we tried were great. The Gourmet with waiter Jesus was my favorite. Very upscale and... More

Let me begin this review with this statement. We purchased this stay because it was cheap, I mean REALLY CHEAP!! So we went into this prepared for simplicity. Our shuttle driver stopped for drinks on the drive from the airport to the resort, so we already had a little “vacation spirit” at check-in. I can honestly say we were both... More

Presently booked to the new ABR -- Akumal Bay Beach Wellness Resort -- for Dec 17 arrival. Bringing both kids this time, 11 and 5. A bit nervous it won't be open on time -- scheduled... More

Great because of the location, just a few steps from the beach. Our room was basic but large and clean. Helpful staff, and parking close to the rooms. Recommended for a no-frills base close to the beach and the turtles, which were amazing and definitely worth going to see.

This review is late as I forgot I hadn't done one. Stayed here for 2 weeks in December last year and its a beautiful hotel right on the beach. Yes the rooms are a bit basic but you are only in them to shower and sleep. I stayed in block 6 on the 2nd floor and the views where to... More

We spent the final week the Akumal Beach Resort was open before it's total renovation began. The entire resort is getting a makeover and upgrade. So, this review will be more about our expectations of what the changes will bring. Rooms: the rooms were basic, clean, with a few repairs needed here and there. We started out with 2 rooms... More
