Best Ice Cream in the world

I have been on an Akumal Vacation for diving and snorkeling and seeing the archeological sites. Went to Lucy's to get some great bread for breakfast and saw the wonderful flavors of ice cream. Try the Akumal Road flavor. You can get samples of different kinds. Best I have ever had. Don't miss... read more

We have been coming to Akamel for about 10 years and we always looked forward to the fresh ice cream after a hot day at the beach. It was made fresh daily, and if you didn't make it there in time they would run out. Our most recent visit in Feb 2015 was a major disappointment. 7 ice creams came... More

We ate here after a dive because of the reviews and the reviews were spot on. We started with the tortilla soup the flavor was excellent. Then we had coconut shrimp and shrimp tacos, both were very good as well. Needless to say we were very full.

Go to Lucy's and ask for Ruby to be your server. Ruby has worked at Lucy's for 8 years and this is where she has learned her English, which is as broken as you'd expect, but well-suited for offering you drink and meal ideas from her near decade of working there! Go there for the mojito, but stay well past... More

Some disclaimers: I don't mean to be reviewing a restaurant, but rather a product...and anything like "research " was impossible because I don't speak Spanish. However, counter that with a love of frozen confections, and that I'm the coauthor of a 1980s travel guide entitled "The Very Best Ice Cream and Where to Find It." The "product" is the work,...

All the flavors are great, there are vegan ice creams available too which my favorite is Dulce de leche! Mint chocolate chip is always a winner as well.

I enjoyed Lucy's after dinner at Turtle Bay a couple of nights and it was amazing. Dark chocolate habanero and salted caramel were amazing. Highly recommended if you are in the area.

We heard about the ice cream so we went to try it nice flavors but not creamy and too many ice crystals , the bakery did not have a lot of options but looked good . The seating is wonderful , under cover and cool , service was nice for us and others eating there.

Service was very slow, food and as cold, staff were not attentive to customer needs, and the margaritas were actually brown. Very bad experience with restaurant allowing rude peddlers into the front area of the restaurant while diners were trying to eat. Some of the peddlers became rude and pushy but still the restaurant staff and manager did nothing to... More

I enjoyed toasted sourdough bread with butter and jam in the morning. Coffee, of course. I went back several times for their homemade ice-cream!
