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 and relaxing activities such as daily yoga and meditation classes. 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.

Concord, North Carolina4 contributions1 helpful vote
The staff here is totally amazing. They are friendly and attentive. Our butler Carlos Aruro Olarte Zaleta went above and beyond for us and is one of the nicest people we have had the pleasure of meeting. The resort was extremely clean and well maintaned. This resort met all of our expectations and more. Marianna at the front desk did an amazing job and went above and beyond as well for us in many ways!!! Each room had a jacuzzi tub on the balcony also! Snorkling was very good and the beach was clean. The view of the ocean was BEAUTIFUL!!!

We (a party of 8 with 2 small children) visited in August 2020 amid the covid pandemic. First of all we felt completely safe the entire time. They are limited to 10% capacity so it seemed like the place was empty. But let me tell you the service didn't suffer one bit, if anything we got more attention if that's possible! the staff went above and beyond making friends with the little ones, I think they made more friends than me and I have been going there for 18 years! I was pleased to see my friend Carlos in the buffet, he has been there 28 years and has always remembered me from my second trip forward! Im sure Im forgetting some but, Carlos, Wilbert, Kevin, Blanca, Jose, Marabella, Freddy, Marco, Iris, Jesus, Adriana, Carlos again, ( Maycee says hi) Toribio, Leonardo, Elias and anyone Im forgetting, thank you thank you thank you ! You made our family vacation so memorable, especially for the children! The house keeping staff made us feel so safe in our rooms and everywhere. The sea was very angry while we were there I think due to some passing hurricanes so the snorkeling was limited but we all got to see some baby Tortuga's hatching! Thank you again Emanuele for handling our room requests again and as usual taking such good care of us! I have been fighting pancreatic cancer for a few years and feel so lucky to be able to return each time! I hope I continue to win the battle and continue to return for many more years! Thank you so much everyone and we will see you in August 2021. Muchas gracias!!!!

They were kind, attentive, thoughtful, fun to get to know. Can't speak highly enough of how eager they all were to make sure I had a wonderful stay. Shout out to the restaurant staff: Marco B, Iris, Jesus, Carlos Tec, Adriana, Leonardo, Elias, Toribio, Otilio y Carlos Ek, and, of course, Mirabella the "drinks lady". Love to you all. And thank you (was it Leonardo, or Jesus?) for teaching me the bird's name in Mayan: Kol.

The resort is beautiful and peaceful! The staff and service is absolutely wonderful!!! Everyone is so friendly and helpful. The butler Carlos went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed! Everyone was so helpful and welcoming. It was relaxing and secluded which is exactly what we were looking for. The beach was breathtaking and the water is crystal clear! We loved snorkeling and stand up paddle boarding. Great food and very clean resort. We can’t wait to go back!!!

We stayed in the pent house. The stay was amazing. It was not crowded due to COVID. They took great precaution in sanitation. This place is an oasis away from home. Best vacation my wife and I have taken.
