January 20-27th, 2015 This was our second visit to the Akumal Beach Resort, the first visit being four years ago. At that time we had a wonderful vacation with things registering around a 2.5 or 3 star. The changes that have taken place at the hotel are a plus, providing more comfort to its guests. We were travelling with our... More

Was at ABR in January for 10 days. Mostly loved the resort. Great location, with the good beach and the great snorkelling. Rooms were good. We were the first to stay in our new room and it was sparsely decorated, and looked as if it had been rushed to get us in. It wasn't concerning as we never spend much... More

The resort was beautiful with snorkeling right off the beach. Servers were wonderful with drinks and food being offered 24/7. Akemal was a short walk away. No vendors on the beach or any where in the resort. The construction would have been a nuisance is you stayed in your room all day, but was barely noticed when on the beach.... More

We had never been to this location or resort before this trip. Our decision to stay at the Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort was greatly influenced by the reviews of past customers who had stayed at this resort prior to it undergoing renovations. All of the reviews were phenomenal. Also, my husband and I were looking for a resort... More

We chose this resort for it's location - Akumal Bay, and it's size - small. We stayed January 17-24th, 2015. I concur with everything vicoria64 and kitwpgTA wrote about this place. We would like to add that the BEDS were firm but very comfortable, the RENOVATIONS of adding a balcony to each room were seamless and did not look like... More

This is an absolutely fantastic resort, and when the construction is complete, I'm sure that there will be no complaints possible. (The entire property is being remodeled and expanded, and there is still some construction going on, but it really wasn't noticeable or inconvenient.) Its location, as many have said, is perfect, with fabulous snorkeling among sea turtles and coral... More

A little tolerance is necessary when you know construction is or has just taken place as nothing is ever finished on time. The construction did not affect our holiday at all as all services except some evening shows were available. This is a resort we have been drawn to for the 2nd time now because it is right on the...

We had one hiccup and that was right when we arrived, but it was resolved in minutes. They assigned us a room that wouldn’t accommodate us, but when I said that what they had assigned wouldn’t work, they bumped us AND our friends to penthouse suites, side by side.

This is probably the best all inclusive resort we have been to. Even with construction going on, it didn't affect us at all. I don't even know where to start without making this too long, but the food, the rooms, the beach and the entire staff made our trip one of the best! We too are a little interested to... More
