We stayed at akumal bay hotel and walked here twice for lunch. It was so nice and cheap. We requested something not on the menu and they were happy to make it.

Turtle bay has what may be the best food in Akumal. The menu is varied. The baked goods are very good. The prices are very reasonable. If you must choose 1 place to eat in Akumal, this is the one.

Have had many meals at Turtle Bay. So many favorites. TB makes the best sandwiches and salads. The calamari is fantastic. Can't go wrong here.

We ate breakfast several mornings during our stay in Akumal. My favorite was the pancakes with an added side of bacon (4 pieces!), but everything we ordered was delicious and we took leftovers to condo for breakfast the next morning because the portions were large. The latte and mocha espressos were on point. Every server we had was friendly and... More

We went into this trip with every intention of eating the most authentic food. I think we even decided to avoid this place prior to our trip solely on principle. That was, until we smelled it walking by and saw all the incredible pastries they had to offer. Please do yourselves a favor and go here. We turned their pastries... More

Great restaurant, excellent staff and variety of dishes. Food seemed very fresh and tasty. Quantity is not an issue here either, Sourdough Flatbreads were HUGE and plenty for two. I had the buffalo chicken sandwich on another occasion too which was equally delicious and spicy. Would mainly recommend sampling the Ice Cream which was incredible. A great visit! 5*

Stayed in a hotel just down the beach from this bakery. It is set off the beaten track at the rear of the main street, not far from the dive centre. The first visit was in the afternoon, hot and in need of refreshment we found this place. It is a small wooden building ( a bit like a bandstand)... More

Get here when you are in Akumal, great for a treat after snorkeling with turtles. They have the best mint choc chip and some really tasty baked treats.

Attended a fundraiser for local Red Cross at Turtle Bay. Great entertainment by Natalie and the Snowbirds and Blackened Grouper was excellent. Can't wait to go back next year.

We were staying a nearby resort and decided to have some lunch at Turtle Bay. I was a bit surprised at the prices and thankfully ended up having just enough to cover the bill. Would have sucked to walk all the way back to get some money. I believe they do take credit cards but didn't carry that with me,... More
