We just returned from Akumal Beach Resort. I have mixed things to say about it. The location is amazing if you love being in the water and snorkelling. The ocean is warm and clear and I don't think you could miss seeing turtles, stingrays and a large number of other fish if you go out snorkelling. Bring your own gear... More

We returned home last weekend from another amazing vacation at Akumal Beach Resort. I just can’t say enough about this place. They are closing for the fall to do some upgrades, but there are many, many reasons why this place is already the best place I’ve found on the Yucatan, and the Caribbean. 1. Akumal Bay. The water is crystal... More

After hearing many glowing remarks from family members, my husband and I decided to venture to Akumal Beach Resort for a first hand experience. We are so glad we did! What a wonderful vacation spot! The staff was accommodating and friendly. The food was great-definitely a "family friendly" vacation spot, as well as for couples who are just trying to... More

My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful week at Akumal Beach Resort. We arrived late (11:30pm) on a Saturday night and were met with a cool glass of juice and sandwiches in our room. We had not had a chance to eat so we were very grateful for the thoughtfulness. We could not see until Sunday morning what a beautiful... More

The entertainment team (Mirna and the two Alexs) was great along with the food! I would definitely take my family back. I recomend this for a quiet, calm vacation. My favorite part was that you were never more than 20 steps from the beach!

There were some really great things about this place but, there were also some really negative things as well. Let me start with the positives: The BEACH, all I can say is WOW! We travel a lot and this beach is one of the best (if not the best) I have ever been to. Soft white sand, clear warm water,... More

Stayed in building 5 per other reviews and was very happy with the accommodations. Buffet was good for all meals and the snack bar at the pool was great for a quick snack. Great snorkeling at the end of the beach past the pool. Overall experience was great.
