We took a quick walk around and were blown...

This was our second time at the Akumal Bay resort, our first was before the renovation. There is a lot to like about this resort but the best is the location. Right on the beach, excellent snorkelling just steps from the room, quiet and relaxing. This is a smaller resort that feels un-crowded and relaxing. Something notable about this resort...

Overall we enjoyed our stay. We stayed for 10 nights in January, and traveled with our 12 year old daughter. We have been to the Mayan Riviera many times, at AI's and regular hotels. Pros outweighed the cons. The resort is an excellent size, as we never had far to go to get to any of the restaurants, or to...

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
