Everything is near the ocean. We travelled with our 9 year old son for ten days, we loved snorkelling in the bay. Turtles , Rays, fish...

The hotel, grounds and beach are beautiful! Thomas Cook are rubbish. But that's another story. So when we checked in minus our luggage (because Thomas Cook couldn't be bothered to load 39 cases onto the plane). Raul at reception took such pity on us that he upgraded us to a penthouse suite. Which was absolutely gorgeous! The food is good....

A bit of a room problem, solved immediately by Marianne. Beach activities were top notch with a great staff including Kara, Marianne, Jaqueline and hiershay ( sorry if I got the last name incorrectly). Top beaches. Excellent food every night, in every room. Music...you need work on this. Need a "show" at least every other night. The bands became noisy...

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
