We were with a group of 12 over 60. it was a very enjoyable trip. Since the resort is being remodeled, there are likely to be problems.u first we should address the good things. the overall impression of the facility was positive. The food was far above average, the specialty restaurants were as good as secret's resort's an we have... More

A beautiful spot, right on the beach with lovely views from all the rooms. I found the staff extremely courteous, pleasant and happy to assist. The room was lovely with a well-stocked bar and, believe it or not, a jacuzzi on the balcony!! That was a surprise! The food was fabulous! We tried all of the restaurants, my personal favourite...

We were at this resort 10 years ago when it was the original property. This past fall it was renovated from a 3 star to a 5 star. The new hotel is lovely with modern understated buildings. The gardens are just being planted so the grounds are not as lush as they will be but still very nice. In addition... More

We were here before the renovations in 2014 and really enjoyed our stay. This time we booked two rooms one for us and one for our grandson and my mother (great Grandma). We requested ground floor because of the stairs (elevator installations were being worked on in building 3 and 4). We were located in Building 4 (farthest from the... More

Just got back a couple of days ago. Can't wait to go back. It's the first resort I've ever said that about. It's not perfect but it's a small, friendly resort with great staff, fabulous food and every room has an ocean view. You can see the beach from your room, the buffet, the snack bar, the pools, the lobby... More

This is probably the first resort I've stayed in whereby the place actually looks a lot better in real life than the photos seen online. Maybe it's due to the new renovations, but the place looks clean and new. They are also constructing elevators in the buildings, which I think should be completed by mid-2015.

My friend and I happened upon this gem quite by luck! Our trip started 2 days late due to a nasty storm on departure, but we had enough fun and relaxation in the 5 remaining days to make up for lost time. There is nothing but praise to express for this resort. The staff were all outstanding, the location perfect... More

This was my second visit to the Akumal. I enjoyed my week but I'm not sure that I liked it better than before the renovations. I question some of the renovations for example a jaccuzzi for each room was not necessary, I don't know many people that used theirs. I had a penthouse and the jaccuzzi was on the top... More

We were at this resort from February 4-18, 2015. The nearby snorkelling was excellent and we enjoyed the size of the resort. We really enjoyed the live entertainment, unlike the all inclusives with their phony actors. During the two weeks we could not get a beach chair unless you waited till afternoon and went to the South end of the... More

We just got back yesterday and overall all had a very good experience at Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort. The Good: The food in most cases.
