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

Has anyone heard if the renovation has plans for a Moonrise Bar successor? That was the single coolest feature at ABR. I was sad when it was dismantled and hope at new one is made. Also, is anyone really skeptical about booking a room until it is reopened? Construction always takes longer than expected. We hope to visit again in... 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! Everyone there was so friendly and helpful and got to know many of the people that work there. Alex, Alex & Chy were so great and did an awesome job... More

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)

Returned home after another week at ABR with my family and miss it so much already! This place is an absolutely amazing slice of paradise! The water is clear, the color can be described as postcard perfect! Snorkeling with many species of fish and of course sea turtles, a life changing experience for sure! The sand is soft and powder...

My husband and I spent a week at the Akumal Beach Resort a couple of weeks ago and it was a lovely experience. It's about an hour or so from Cancun Airport depending on how many other stops the bus needs to make. The beach is absolutely stunning and the resort is clean, serviceable and has a lovely ambiance.
