Rooms were spotlessly clean, beds were comfortable, fridge was stocked almost every day. Every room at this resort is oceanfront with a breathtaking view. Marcelino at...

Myself, Husband & 2 Daughters have just returned home from this amazing place! From the moment we arrived we were greeted warmly and didn/t lift a finger for 2 weeks. It really did feel like paradise, our room overlooked the pool area and the beautiful sea beyond. The beach was golden and there was plenty of sunloungers to choose from...

Everything is included in your stay - beautiful ocean views, yoga, food, alcohol, a variety of activities, room service. Don't forget to bring tip money (expect at least $100 per person in your group - NOT BAD for the excellent service they provide at all times). I would choose this place every time!

A fantastic place to stay. We loved the resort because of the size of it which made it quieter and less people. All the rooms were beach facing and the beach was kept beautiful every morning. The dive shop guys were awesome, thanks to Francisco, Mauro and Aramis for all the dives. We will be back.

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
