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

The rooms have been updated and painted, new linens and a small mini kitchen set up for your convenience.Great towels for the bath and beach. Comfortable shower, plenty of space, even... 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). When we saw the beautiful beach and felt the local 'vibe' we knew we had to try it out and we were NOT disappointed! HOTEL It is certainly not luxurious so you need to know what you are... More

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....

We stayed at the Villas Maya Bungalows at Akumal with our children and 2 grandsons, 6 and 8. We had two bungalows and it was perfect! Spacious, clean, a little funky but a perfect spot for us. The kids loved the pool, the adults loved the beach and swimming out to watch the turtles feed. It could not have been... More

I stayed at this hotel in July 2013 after a 6-day church mission trip in Mexil Yucatan. It was like paradise after living in a small village for 6-days. The rooms were comfortable, nice showers, cold A/C. The bed could have been a little more comfortable but after 6 sleepless nights in a hammock, it did the trick. The snorkeling... More

I complete agree with the previous post. The beach was wonderful. Clean sand and water with awesome weather. The food was a knockout. We never had a bad meal the 5 days there. The service was 5 star. Bar tenders, waitstaff, and cleaning crew were top notch. The negatives were the awful wifi service, some ants in the room and... More

Thank you for your review! It's great to hear that you enjoyed our place and the food! I wanted to let you know that we just got a separate wi fi connection for the hotel rooms and this will certainly help make the signal stronger. Lolha Beach bar was sucking all the connectivity from the rooms. Now we should be... More

I recently stayed at the Hotel Akumal Caribe in the bungalows...and wanted to leave after the first night. The bungalow I stayed in was old (but large), had an incredibly hard mattress, had lots of people walking past three large, ground-level windows, had lousy wifi reception AND did not have curtains that went all the way across the windows.
