We came here 25 years ago and then it was small, relaxed and slow paced. The original vibe is still here, but it is very crowded in the snorkling waters and on the beach. We stayed in a 'villa' in the spa area, a basic room but clean and with friendly and responsive staff. There are some good restaurants if... More

I tell yah, at first I was not keen on the idea of a full service resort. I had travelled before, with my back pack and a map. Roughed it, and had a challenging but excellent experience. This time, however I was travelling with a group of twenty nine family and friends! We came to gather, to witness and celebrate... More

We were there over New Year's. Good snorkeling, very crowded public beach, very clean updated room. As always we love the good people of this area and we have already booked directly with the hotel for another trip this spring.

We have been going there for 25 years and now it has gotten out of hand with the number of people on the beach. The Hotel owners have several dogs who bark day and night, apparently they are not supervised most of the time, It is hard to believe that people in the hospitality business for as long as these...

Akumal2u, Owner at Hotel Akumal Caribe, responded to this review

Please accept my personal apology for our dogs barking. This would not have happened if we were in town. Unfortunately our care givers for the dogs have not been careful when going out to lunch or when leaving them for awhile. Our instructions are to leave them in the house because they bark when no one is home. They will... More

I'm in love with this place and do not feel the need to stay anywhere else when I go back to Akumal -- and I'm promising myself to return this year! The people are nice and laid back, which is what I was looking for. If you are looking for a quiet spot, great food options, clean, low traffic (not... More

Stayed here with two kids for five days- the first room we got was a bit small and opened up out to the parking lot (not a busy parking lot, but still). We asked if they had any other room available and the guy came after 10 minutes, took our laughing kids and luggage in his transport bike thing and... More

This was my first time to actually stay in this hotel. In years past, we visited the beach near the hotel to get away from the crowds in Cancun. The last time we visited here was about 12 years ago. At that time, we ate at the restaurants and absolutely loved the food. Thankfully, the food remains very good. Unfortunately,... More

My husband and I wanted to stay away from the all-inclusive resorts this trip and Hotel Akumal Caribe was perfect for us! We are scuba divers and spend the day underwater. We rented a bungalow for 9 days and it was perfectly located for us to walk to town, get to Akumal Dive Shop, and access to lots of local... More

I have stayed here 3 times: 1974, 1990 & January 2016. Although it has greatly changed in 41 years, being now surrounded by other hotels & resorts, it has not lost its charm. It is one of the few places on this coast that one can reef snorkel off shore & see turtles & large fish. The reef is mostly... More
