I have lost count the number of times our family has stayed here. Recently, I came alone for some beach time at the hotel. Carmenita was my housekeeper, and she took very good care of me. One morning after she had cleaned, I found a button to my shirt lying on the kitchenette counter in a conspicuous place. Instead of... More

We really enjoyed our stay and the hospitality of the staff was wonderful. We stayed in a double bungalow which did not have an ocean view. There was a small fridge in our room and I asked them to bring us a microwave which they did the following day. I can't give more than 3 stars because the property is... More

I stayed in one of the bungalows. It's basic but totally confortable. The location could not be any better. The beach is beautiful, the snorkelling out of this world. The hotel provides sun beds within a cordoned off area for hotel guests. Problem is the beach gets very busy and security does not keep the " non customers" out of... More

After having lived in Akumal for 14+ years, it was interesting to return for the first time after a year away. It was even more interesting staying in a hotel for 13 nights than in our house. Having been long-term residents, we had lots of options on places to stay, but the Hotel Akumal Caribe more than filled any, and... More

This is a special place. We first visited Hotel Akumal Caribe 20 years ago. We have made many, many trips since and find it as beautiful as ever. The people are warm and friendly and for us, Happy Hour lasts all day long. If you are looking for all-inclusive with trough style buffets and loud mariachi bands...Keep looking. This hotel... More

We had rented a condo for 8 nights just north of Playa del Carmen. It was spectacular, everything you would need - but it was too far from the beach. We drove to Akumal, walked into the lobby at the Hotel Akumal Caribe, and fortunately they had a bungalow available. We took a wash on the condo and absolutely LOVED... More

If you want a big glitzy all inclusive resort, then don't come to Akumal. But if you want a quieter more laid back experience, in a small friendly resort, then this is the place to come. We have been staying at the Hotel Akumal Caribe for 10 years and just love it. There is a 3 story hotel, as well... More

My wife and I, along with two friends returned home early this week after an eight night stay at the Akumal Caribe. Our first impression was thst it might be too laid back for us, who have stsyed at exclusive and all inclusive resorts. We grew into its easy going vibe within 24 hours and we look to return. The...

Husband and I stayed at Hotel Akumal Caribe for two nights in Feb. 2015. We were headed to Isla Mujeres but wanted to re-visit Akumal one more time since we had not been back there in about 6 years. This was our first time staying at this property and we booked the top corner room #416. Upon checking in the... More

I've been staying here for 7 years now, and I last reviewed it in 2013. Each year, as soon as I return home I book for next year. The hotel is still a lovely, friendly, clean and simple place to enjoy this magical bay and the wide diversity of people who visit. There are many languages spoken here, and first... More
