Thanks to all TA reviewers who provided information that steered my wife and me to ABR during the first week of April. It met our primary goals of direct snorkel access, low-key resort, clean rooms and beautiful grounds and beach. The snorkeling was very good and an easy stroll from our room to the best areas. We saw many turtles,... More

My husband and I enjoy traveling and decided to book this trip to Mexico based on the reviews of AKB for the wonderful beaches and snorkeling. The pictures did not do the resort and beaches justice and we had a wonderful trip. I thought it would help to break up the review in categories: Travel: We used Canada Transfers for... More

We stayed March 16th to 23rd at the ABR and we thorougly enjoyed our vacation at this beautiful low key smaller resort. Air Canada provided excellent service as well and we really appreciated the shuttle service that was included. We weren't looking for a 5 star hotel that required a golf cart to get around but we wanted good food,... More

Wow! What an experience. We got married at Akumal Beach Resort with a fairly large group. There were 30 of us all together. The resort was perfect for our group. They did a huge amount of work to make our wedding perfect! I would 150% recommend this venue for anyone contemplating a destination wedding. It was great for all of... More
