I have to say that I didn't stay here, but I did a day pass. I was wandering down the beach away from Akumal Bay beach, looking for a less crowded area to snorkel. I stumbled onto a peaceful area on the beach with lots of chairs and palapas. I asked an employee about renting a chair and he said... More

My wife and one daughter went here last summer (other child and I missed it due to an expired passport mishap, discovered just prior to travel). They loved it so much that they agreed to go back this year (and the entire family made it). What sets ABR apart is that it is truly laid back, NOT a fancy resort,... More

We have also vacationed in Jamiaca and Florida many times. The beach is absolutely beautiful and the staff is so friendly! Wilbert, one of the bar tenders was so great! He is... More

2 nd year going to Akumal Beach Resort. I love it! My daughter loves it as we'll. Can't wait to see improvements they make this fall! Best beach, snorkeling and views. Family orientated, but with something for the adults. Rooms are basic but not traveling to Mexico for a room. Staff is great. Food has greatly improved. Really like seeing... More

I realized that I have never done a review of The Akumal Beach Resort. We have stayed there a total of 6 times. Sometimes we go just my husband and I, and other times it's with a giant group of friends and family...I should mention that we have traveled to the Riviera Maya more times thanI can mention. We've stayed... More

It was a place that my boyfriend and I found, that was quite, with a Beautiful Beach. It was affordable, nice and clean, nothing fancy. We fell in love with ABR, been there 4 years in a row. Did not need the fancy stuff that all those big places had, just the quite little place on the Beach that we... More

My husband and I visited Akumal Beach resort two years ago and fell in love with the beach, the quiet, and the amazing turtles. We decided to go again and went back to our beautiful Akumal the end of July. You should understand that Akumal is not a resort, it is a hotel. The staff is nice and the hotel... More

We visited ABR in April 2011, and I honestly thought I had posted a review, but apparently not. ABR is a smaller resort with the most fantastic snorkeling on the Riviera Maya, right from shore. The rooms were very basic, but we did not go to Mexico for the rooms, it was the beach and the snorkeling. An easy walk... More

We read all the reviews of Akumal Beach Resort, and to be honest as shortly as the day before we were looking into changing our destination. I'm so glad we did not! Yes, it's a three star hotel, yes the rooms are quite basic, but the hardest thing to express in a review is the "something about it" that is... More
