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.

We spent a week at resort with my parents, five siblings and their spouses. We had a fabulous time. The rooms are sparse and musty. We had no water pressure in the shower and the beds are ridiculously hard. BUT NONE OF THAT MATTERS! Our rooms were steps from beach with amazing views of the bay. The food and staff... More

We had 5 nights here with our 3 teenage boys. A great stay with wonderful snorkelling- seeing the turtles was a real highlight. The boys loved the all inclusive option and overall the food is very good. Wonderful beachfront and a very nice pool. We asked to move room from building 5 to building 6 after the first night as...

We wanted to return to Akumal Beach Resort before all the changes so we went August 10-18. For our second visit, we brought another couple with us who loved it as much as we did. We snorkeled every day and with so much to see – turtles, rays, fish and coral – we never felt the need to do other... More

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
