Stayed hear recently as a special holiday for my fiancées 50th birthday. Have to say did have mixed feelings bearing in mind that from the UK this for us was a very expensive luxury holiday. Firstly the position of the rooms with sea views and Jacuzzi on the balcony are the main selling point I feel- they are spacious and...

We recently spent 4 relaxing days at Akumal Bay Beach resort. This was our first trip to the Mayan Riviera and we were not disappointed. The hotel was spotless and staff very friendly and attentive. Having visited a Sandals resort on our last getaway, this trip had much to live up to, something ABBWR did with ease. The food was...

First time here, had an excellent time. The waitresses, Sintia and Karina, were awesome, always smiling, great with my two kids. and always there for you. Will definitely return in the future. The size of this resort is great, not for the party crowd. Buffet and a'la cartes were great. Had an issue with the shower not draining, was fixed...

This was our second visit to Akumal Bay Beach Resort. Everything that you need for an amazing holiday is catered for here. We stayed in building 1 last time in a penthouse. Looked directly out onto the swimming pool and beach. This time we stayed in building 4 abit quieter and further out but suited us. We had a balcony...

This resort is simply beautiful and well worth a visit. You can see the sea turtles from the hotel beach and rent snorkels (1 hour free per day) to go and swim with them. The only major problem is there was absolutely no privacy in the rooms. They were totally open, the sinks opposite the wardrobe next to the bed,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In the ancient language of the Mayas, long before Cancun, there was a magic place called Akumal "Place of Turtles". Between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, Akumal Bay - Beach & Wellness Resort offers one of the best beaches anywhere, with almost a mile of white sandy powder beach, world-class snorkeling with sea turtles and top diving with a great variety of life that thrives within the live coral reef just steps from our guest room. The relaxed atmosphere in Akumal captivates the spirit of a laid back Mayan Riviera beachside town. Akumal Bay - Beach & Wellness Resort offers a truly unique experience for guests seeking the best possible beach vacation. All guest rooms are located in 4 buildings within steps of the ocean and feature breathtaking views of Akumal Bay. With the convenience of an All-Inclusive, we provide our guests with a sophisticated simplicity and friendly service in the intimate atmosphere of a small resort. ... more   less
