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

I know this review is a little late since we stayed in January 2014, but I figured since they were closed for reno, now would be a good time. My wife and I booked it simply for the snorkeling. We had snorkeled Akumal Bay a couple of times and figured we should just stay there so we could snorkel everyday.... More

We've been traveling to Mexico since 2001. We started up the coast at the Iberostar, and have gradually worked our way down thru the H10 in Puerto Morales, the now Catalonia and Dreams in Puerto Aventuras, The Catalonia Royal Tulum, and the Grand Palladium Royal Suites, the three trips before this one. However, since around 2005, I've been watching Akumal... More

We were at the ABR August 15th – 21st for our 9th or 10th stay at our home under the sun. Made it to CUN about 11:30. Swiftly got through Immigration, bags were waiting; a green light and we were headed for our transfer. We used Canada Transfers again and we were escorted to our ride and away we went.... More

We just got home from our 15th stay at Akumal Beach Resort. The hotel has everything we look for in a vacation getaway. ABR is just the right size. No need to take a tram ride anywhere! All of the buildings are located within a hundred yards of the beach - which happens to be one on the best beaches... More

This place was like paradise. Great way to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary, cancer free for one year and my 60th birthday! We went with friends and it was awesome!

First time to Akumal and will definitely be going back to ABR, just hope they don't change the friendly laid back atmosphere. The reno is needed but all in all it is a great resort. The people definitely make this wonderful resort who they are. Food was very good, the rooms were great, pool was excellent and the views-to die... More

A great stay for the money! Saw turtles snorkeling, saw a baby turtle born and saw a momma turtle make her nest and birth her eggs! The food was good and the room was clean and a nice size. The pool was nice too. All the staff was very friendly and nice. Especially Wilbur, Timmy, Clemente and Felipe at the... More

10 consecutive years. Don't even think of going anywhere else. Gorgeous beach! Fantastic snorkeling on reef with numerous fish, turtles, rays etc. Hotel staff of waiters, bar tenders, animation team, reception, sales, marketing, bell boys, reservations --- all the friendliest and most helpful, and therapeutic, in the world. Love all of them. Have become friends over the years,. (Carmen)
