My husband and I just returned from an 8 day vacation here. It was amazing! The snorkeling right off the beach is just as good as any other off shore trip we have taken. We saw tons of sting rays, a flounder, tons of beautiful fish and even the barracuda they named Pedro. We swam with the turtles every single day. You do have to go in front of secrets to see them because that is where the sea grass is. The food was the best we have every had at an all inclusive. The Japanese was our favorite. The gourmet was also wonderful and we wanted to give a shout out to Aaron there. He was wonderful and so much fun. It really seemed like he loves his job and we loved having him as a waiter. The sushi bar was also great. I am not a big sushi fan but since it is to order they gladly took out any items I did not want. Also Oscar making drinks at the sushi bar was great. He remembered our names every time we came up and also our drinks that we liked to order. We decided we are going to come back with our kids someday. The only issue we had was there isn't a lot of shade. We never had a problem getting a sunbed since it is towards the off season but we didn't enjoy the main pool as much as we could of because there is never shade over it. That being said there are smaller pools in front of the some of the buildings which were a little more shaded so we just stuck to those. We stayed in building 3 which was nice because it isn't next to the main pool or bar so it is quite. The beach in front is a little rocky but it is also where all the turtle nests are. We didn't get to see any hatch but we did see one lay eggs! We did also go to Tulum, Xel-Ha and La Buena Vida. Tulum and Xel-ha are worth it! We had so much fun at both. La Buena Vida had the best tacos and nachos Ive ever had. You can walk into the town of Akumal and rent a golf cart to get there. Overall we had an amazing trip and cannot wait to go back!

first time here but not the last! This resort is heaven! The grounds are beautiful, the staff so friendly and accommodating and when I called with a few minor problems they were handled immediately.,,the food is great in the buffet and ala carte restaurants and the food is much healthier than other resorts I have been to in the past. Lots of selections and presentation in the ala carte restaurants are very "elegant and upscale"..the rooms are adequate and the a/c worked beautifully......housekeeping did a great job everyday as did the people filling the mini bar.
I really appreciated that this is a quiet resort with people appearing to drink responsibly.....did not see large number of drunk people!
The beach is beautiful and I am a pool person but spent most of my time in the ocean....the huts are appreciated and there are plenty of them with no towel card required!!!!
The meditation classes with Hiram in the morning and Rene at 5pm were some of the best I have ever taken and I have meditated for 30 years!!!!
The staff at the Kooben manager Jorge, hostess Ambar and waiters Aaron Jesus Salvaodor and Marcos were super, professional and a delight.
Front desk staff Raul and Daniala were also a treat to deal with
I absolutely loved this resort and will return again and again. Thank you so much for a wonderful vacation.

Room Tip: we were in building one and it was very quiet and close to everything.

Our third trip to Akumal Bay Beach & Wellness Resort was relaxing as always. We love the beach and the stunning oceanfront views! The rooms and surroundings are always clean and very well maintained. The atmosphere and food were excellent at the Asian restaurant and the sushi bar by the beach!

Yoga classes with Hiram were a treat and the oceanfront view from the studio was spectacular. A huge shout out to Luis for a restorative massage and Marta for assisting with the hydrotherapy services. The spa setting is tropical, modern yet luxurious, creating a tranquil and a truly relaxing experience!

Just returned from the most amazing 2 weeks at this resort, The staff gardeners, cleaners, waitress especially Karina and Marbella, bar staff, activities girls Karla and Marina were fantastic and always happy to help and everyone always had big smiles on there faces.
The food at the a la Carte and buffet had plenty of choice and was really good.
And last but not least the beach which was cleaned every morning by a army of cleaners, the sand was white and soft and never hot the water was crystal clear and warm and underneath was the most incredible fish, turtles, barricuda but my favourite was the massive spotted ray.
PARADISE ❤️
