We visited Turtle Bay Café a number of times during our week-long stay in Akumal. With it's extensive menu, my son called it the "Cheesecake Factory of Akumal." The breakfasts were delicious with generous portions of eggs, beans, tortillas, etc., and their Chiapas Dark Roast coffee was excellent. I made an early-morning run on one occasion for cinnamon rolls and... More

My family and I were traveling to Akumal on vacation this year with our close friends and their children. Our friends have a son who was celebrating his ninth birthday during the vacation and we were looking for a birthday cake. Not only did Jen take care of the cake, but she provided decorations and a piñata so we could... More

Not disappointed. Arrived about 5:45 p.m. The TBC and Black/Bleu Burger as good as ever. Other choice besides french fries, is cole slaw or potatoe salad, both of which are tasty. The waiter quickly changed the bill when we discovered a glass of wine on our tab. Also, don't forget to get a parking slip at the restaurant if the... More

We popped in one morning to have a coffee as the reviews were good on here. Wish we hadn't bothered. We were given weak, horrible tasting coffee and the waiter had a face like a slapped bum the entire time we were there. I watched 4 ladies sit down and he handed them menus without speaking to them and with... More

The best breakfast, by far, that we had during our eleven day stay in Akumal. Ambiance is very good. Outdoors, palapas, colorful chairs and tables, nice garden atmosphere. Service very good although the kitchen was slow at times. Presentation was excellent. The plates were as nicely presented as any I have ever seen. Food quality was very good. Try the... More

We had breakfast almost every morning. The banana pancakes and eggs Benedict (all variations) were favorites. The coffee and lattes were good. A variety of cats in the surrounding vegetation entertain by playing/hunting little lizards.

The food was terrific -- including the best, cleanest salads I ate while in Mexico. The service was pleasant and EFFICIENT from start to finish. Only suggestion is that the staff could smile a bit more, but I'm sure they get tired. Excellent experience.

sometimes you just need a little sweet or homemade ice cream. This is the place! Great ! Right off the beach behind everything else, but anyone can point you there. Busy with locals and visitors!

We spent 9 days in Akumal recently and ate at Turtle Bay 2-1 vs. anywhere else. Our favorite place for breakfast and lunch. Dinner was great too but there are so many options around the area. Highly recommend just about everything on the menu! Can't wait to return, it felt like our little home away from home honestly.
