Akumal Caribe is my staple stay in Akumal. A few years ago my now husband and I found it by chance after we had been frightened way from Playa del Carmen . Which was once was a quiet fishing town and now is , well let's say not ! We stumbled on to Lol-Ha the restaurant next to Akumal Caribe... More

This was our second visit to this hotel. As before our room was spacious and clean. It was very close to the beach. The food served in the restaurant was lovely and the breakfast menu is superb. The staff are friendly and helpful. The main draw of this hotel is the location. It is right on Akumal beach, which is... More

The minute I saw the heading of your review I smiled! Home Away from Home! That's the feeling we want to give our guests and I am over the top delighted that you felt this way during your stay!

This was a long time of dreaming and looking at the pictures of this property before it finally happened last December. It was everything and more what was expected. This is one place you will never want to leave. It is owned by the Hotel Akumal Caribe just down the road. The place is immaculate well taken care of by... More

All is perfect, the beach, the snorkeling right there with the turtles and in the coral reef, the grounds, the restaurants, the impeccable service everywhere including the two restaurants, etc. Our bungalow was not very private, so we had to close the curtains all the time. Also, it lacked lighting close to the sofa to read at night. Otherwise, we... More

We've stayed here several times over the years--we tried the inclusive at other resorts in Akumal, but prefer the smaller, low-key atmosphere here. It has everything you could want including the beautiful beach right in front of your bungalow. It's easy to just relax and enjoy the wonderful views and snorkel, but also easy to rent a car for a...

Hotel Akumal Caribe is a wonderful choice for the traveler who doesn't need the plush luxury of an all inclusive resort. My husband and I have stayed there several times and always have a relaxing time. The rooms are spotless and comfortable, the service friendly, and the restaurants very good. But the big attraction is being on Akumal Bay, with... More

The bungalow/hotel rooms here are fine for a comfortable stay in Akumal. The draw is really the beach and swimming with the turtles, so you won't mind that the room has no TV. The AC works well and keeps the room cool. The bathroom is nice, clean and beds were comfortable. We appreciated the coffee maker in the room and... More

Thank you for your very complete review and your great comments about our property. Sadly, you are right about the bay. It's the commercial tours we have not been able to control due to a legal dispute over private property rights of the Ecological Center next door to us. All they want to do is control the commercial traffic in... More

My husband and I booked this hotel after passing through on a day trip last year (we stayed at Gran Bahia Principe).

Thank you for your review! I was so happy to see that you captured the essence of what we want to provide in a vacation! It's really not about the frills with us, although we are working on the rooms like you said.. it's about the ambiance, the people, the destination, and the beauty of the simplicity of it all....
