My sons (ages 13 and 11) and I stayed here from July 17-21, 2016. We are avid snorkelers and heard about this place through tripadvisor. Our sole purpose for this trip was to snorkel everyday, relax on the beach, and swim in the ocean. We booked our trip through Applevacations. Our travel agent , Doylestown Travel, will give you a...

We knew this was the perfect place for us when we stayed at ABBWR last March. Upon our return this July we enjoyed this resort even more. What continues to make ABBWR special is: 1.The beach and snorkeling are the main reason why we come to this resort. The sand is powder white, the water is crystal clear and beautiful... More

This is our second time at Akumal Bay Beach Resort. The hotel is very cozy, yoga activities are amazing, yoga staff is very professional and pleasant. The sea life is very rich, we were practically surrounded by fish and met a few turtles every time we went to swim. Will most likely come back here next year!

Great beach and food! Mariel and Alex of the entertainment staff were wonderful and kept us busy when we wanted to participate in games, dancing and volley ball. The yogi Hamid was inspiring and classes were held in a beach front palapa! A highly recommended experience.

First impressions are everything. How about a margarita, chocolate truffles and a fresh wet towel as soon as you set foot in the lobby? But you are here for the beach and the turtles aren't you? Well the beach is extraordinary and for the turtles, follow Juan's advise (the hotel travel agent in the lobby): Rent snorkel equipment for 6... More

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
