We choose this hotel based on trip advisor reviews: this resort not only is listed number one but has some fabulous reviews: I read the reviews thinking “I can’t wait to get the same experience”. We travel by trip advisor and it is very rare that I do not agree with the previous reviews: this time I must say I... More

The lobby of the hotel was natural looking under a huge palapa with a natural look and open feel. Our room was clean and furnished nicely. We... More

Although we travelled for our 10th wedding anniversary, (without our daughter), we definitely want to return soon with her! We were there the week of July 18th 2016. All the reviews were accurate, except for the negative ones. The people with negative experiences, I believe are the people who are pessimistic and bring bad luck to all their travels. Some... More

Well this was our 4th vacation (10/28-11/4) to ABBWR since 2013. E-mailed ahead about being return customers and our 5 year anniversary. They gave us an end room 3rd floor Building 2 (bigger). The bed was covered in rose petals and towel art. Always e-mail ahead. Food was fabulous. We were there the last 2 times over Halloween. The resort... More

My boyfriend and I just came back from two weeks at this resort. The beach alone makes this resort worth the price. The sand is nice and soft, there's excellent snorkeling and it is not overly crowded. Akumal town is a short walk down the beach if you want to buy souvenirs.

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
