3rd time at Akumal wellness and Beach resort
Oct 2021 • Couples
This was the third visit that my husband and I made to this resort. We do love this resort because of being situated onAkumal bay where the snorkelling is absolutely amazing
Upon arrival we noticed Carlos Olarte The head Butler front and center. It was so nice to see Carlos, his smile ear to ear ,we walked right up to him immediately gave him a hug and he filled us in on the policy of us not having to wear a mask in the resort because it being open air concept.
Carlos Olarte made sure that whatever we needed was looked after. He is so amazing at his job. Carlos, thank you for making sure our room smelt like Lavender every night and looking after our needs
FRONT DESK
As we walked up to the front desk to check in we noticed that Ricardo was there. Ricardo had been at the resort previous years in another position, it was so nice to see him behind the front desk he was very diligent and made sure that the process was done very easily
After we got to our room we discovered that we were in two double beds instead of one king size bed which we requested.After going back down to the front desk to speak to Ricardo he made sure that we were changed to another room as quick as possible, thank you Ricardo for making sure we were looked after
ROOM
We had the 2nd floor room in the 2nd building. The air conditioning worked well in this room. If I could suggest one thing it would be to add another mirror and chair in the room to make it easy to get ready
*We had, in previous visits had the penthouse and found that we didn’t use it
We found the the restocking of the fringe was not consistent. We had to call the front desk a few time to get it done.
THE BEACH
We love the beach at Akumal wellness in Beach resort because of the snorkelling. it is amazing we were up snorkelling every morning at 7:30 to get out there
Because of the hurricane that had hit the resort the previous month it had taken out a few of the beach cabanas.
This made it tough for everybody to get a cabana . We found that we had to get up at 6 AM to get down there to put our snorkelling gear at one of the cabanas to make sure we had one all day. Because we were in and out snorkelling all day. Usually there are cabanas in front of building three and four but because of the hurricane they were blowen down ,hopefully they will be able to rebuild and take some of the stress off of the limited cabanas available
Our waitress at the beech was Claribel. She was so good. After 2 drinks she remembered what we ordered and was refilling all day. If your at the beach look for her. Thank you Claribel for looking after us
FOOD
The food in the Buffet was good there was a great variety for everyone ,the pizza in the Buffet was the best pizza available on the resort, it is so good I highly recommend that
If you’re there don’t forget to get the coconut ice cream it is to die for .
PELICAN SNACK BAR
This. year because of Covid the Buffet was not running at the pelican snack bar. We did find the food and service very hot and cold here. Compared to previous years that we have been there with the Buffet when the food was very very good.
Breakfast
Another person that we noticed that was still there was Aurora .She runs the egg station at the Buffet, when you see her she has the biggest smile and she remembered us immediately. Like other visits ,once we gave our order after the first day she remembered almost every time we went If you’ve ordered eggs in the Buffay I’m sure you know Aurora
POOL
The pool at the resort is one of the smaller pools, however it does do its job. There was always room . If I can give a recommendation for the pool area it would be to take down a few of the beds that are around the pool and maybe put chairs up there for people who can’t find space around the beach, they might be able to get something around the pool
THE SPA
This was the first time that I’ve tried the spa at the resort. After going the first time I did book a second appointment the spa is absolutely beautiful here very peaceful very relaxing.
For my first message I had Luz. She had the best pressure for a message. I could feel her working out a knot that I had in my shoulders. I highly recommend going to the spa
Thank you Luz
We will be back

Thanks again to
Carlos Olarte -Head butler
Ricardo- front desk
Claribel- beach waitress
Luz- the spa
Aurora- the egg station

Nice Beach
Sep 2021
The Beach is nice, even though the algae, good for snorkeling and swimming.
It's cleaned from algae continuously, so you have to expect worker, trucks and sometimes caterpillars who remove the algae.

Sea turtles <3

A very nice beach and not too crowded. You have a high chance to see turtles here but of course you can see many other fishes, too.

Beautiful Beach

They work very hard to keep beach free from sea weed. The water is so calm you can snorkel all day long.

Super clear water!
Jul 2021
If you're looking for warm, clear, relaxing water where you can float and forget your troubles, this is the spot. For a small fee, there are guides who will take you out to snorkel and see the seat turtles!

Tourist trap. You’re forced to pay to access the beach.
Aug 2021 • Couples
Tourist trap.
Akumal is not the same as a few years ago.
Now it’s full of tour guides trying to sell you things. You have to pay even to grant access to the beach.

It costs 120 pesos per person to access the beach and swim in a limited area. They will try really hard to sell you the package that you have access to snorkeling equipment and swim in other areas (more than 500 pesos per person).
Parking costs usually 50 pesos. You can find some spots at 20 pesos per hour.
Staff is rude everywhere. And you always have the feeling of a tourist trap.

Great beach experience
Jul 2021 • Family
If you take the time to find the spots, you can avoid the sargassum and enjoy the beauty of Akumal. My wife and I strolled the beach southward and discovered many great sites and also places to eat and enjoy the sun. Turtle eggs everywhere, so be careful where you step! We loved this beautiful place!
