Everything was great here, the room was comfortable and clean, the beach is beautiful and the food is excellent with endless choices, but the best thing is the friendly and helpful staff. Wilbert in the buffet is always there to find you a table and make sure your glass is always filled, but the star of the hotel is Jorge...

After 15 years decided to visit Mexico again, couldn't of picked a better resort. Beautiful resort, meals, service, beach, accomodation-it had it all. Could even go snorkelling without leaving the resort, just a few hundred yards off the beach, I saw turtles, stingrays and beautiful fish.

In the past, we have stayed at Gran Bahia Principe, a huge resort, and taxied to Akumal Bay for quality snorkeling. Due to new and restrictive rules at GBP we decided to try ABBWR. This is what we discovered: El...

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
