Just returned from a week at ABR... like most of the reviews on here the resort is overall pretty nice. the only improvements that could be made in our opinions was the food... the buffet is very small and nothing really changes, you can pretty much expect the same thing every night. but a 15 minute walk down the beach...

The most beautiful location. The food was ok but the items made in front of you were most ideal. I really enjoyed the snorkeling. Bring your own equipment for sure. Took a cab down to Cenotes Azul and it only cost $6 usd to get in. Worth the trip. We did an Altournative excursion and it was very neat. All... More

This was our first time to Mexico, so we did not know what to expect. We were very pleased with this resort. The staff was very friendly, the rooms were nice and the beach was AMAZING! If anything could be improved upon, it would probably be the food. We could always find something we liked and it tasted good, but... More

We recently returned from another visit to AKUMAL BEACH RESORT - returning March 12 2014. We have been steady visitors to ABR since 2002. You might say it is in our blood now, as we cannot even consider going to another resort on the Riviera Maya. As we walked to our room this time, it felt very familiar – almost... More

We have been to Akumal Beach Resort 8 times now. It never ceases to exceed my expectations. The beach is still spectacular, the snorkeling unbelievable and the warm, friendly atmosphere as welcoming as ever. Clean, well maintained and lovingly kept, the property is rustic and homey. If you want softer beds, go for the "two doubles" rooms - the king... More

They go out of their way to make you feel at home and always say hello to the guests. The food is wonderful and have... More

We were at the Akumal Beach Resort for 1 week from Feb. 26- March 3 2014 for a week of R & R, soak up the sun and thaw from a Manitoba winter. The resort is a 3 star property about 80 minutes south of Cancun, tucked away from the main highway and right on the beach. The rooms are... More

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
