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

Travelled as a couple to ABR twice in the last 3-4 years, beautiful location steps from the beach, fantastic snorkeling, great staff, very relaxing. 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.

The entertaining staff is great, very helpful, very attentive all the time. The hotel is situated on the best turtle beach .The people are coming for all over to look at the turtles but we... More

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

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
