Some of us had fish, some had delicious flat bread pizzas and some had steak. We all enjoyed it very much. We had a nice, funny waiter. They have a great selection of homemade ice cream for dessert. Great for families!

We ate at Turtle Bay a couple of times on our recent trip to the Riviera Maya. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Cool casual atmosphere in a beautiful setting.

We stayed in Akumal for 3 nights and had nearly every lunch and dinner here as the food was great with lots of variety and reasonably priced. If eating here you must try the blackened fish tacos - sensational! And the homemade icecream is very good too. The only slight negative was the service - it often wasn't very good,... More

We ate here three times on our recent trip to Akumal and everything we ate was very good. The juices are really fresh and I really liked the potato and egg dish I got for breakfast. They have a fabulous ice cream place inside as well. The outside seating is very nice. Liked the variety on the menu as we... More

We visited Turtle Bay twice on recommendation and we were not disappointed. Follow the beach signs from the car park in Akumal and you'll find this deceptively big cafe tucked away from the main path. It has an expansive menu (bordering on confusingly large) and if you're looking for comfort food, it will have something to suit. We had lunch... More

Husband and I had breakfast here. Very good. Worth the walk from Akulma beach wellness resort. Prices were reasonable. Would recommend.

Gonna try it out for dinner tomorrow, the flan to go was excellent. This place is evolving also, we were here 4 years ago. The owners parents were visiting for Mothers Day! Their kids were digging in and hoping to make a go of it in Akumal. Obviously by comments, they are doing something right! Bravo!
