Located right next to the Turtle Bay Bakery. Very good flavor with some unique combinations/flavors. Very rich and creamy; however, there was some crystallization. That could be due to the spotty electricity and thaw/refreezing.

After a long day this is one of our favorite spots to cool down. Plenty of ice cream to be had as well as cold drinks. Not far from the shops once energized. Always a treat to satisfy your cravings!

Lucy's Kitchen is a must stop when in Akumal. The home made ice cream is amazing and the food always fresh and delicious!

I think that Lucy's is still as good over at Turtle Bay Cafe as it was over by the market. I do not think you can find better shrimp and/or fish tacos anywhere and the prices are low. And the ice cream! Best around! We've been staying at Akumal for 20+ years and Lucy's is a regular stop for lunch.... More

when we stayed in Akumal 8 years ago this place was on the main square. now it is part of the Turtle Bay cafe. the home made ice cream is just as good as it was then .I recommend the mango, coconut and coffee.

We have been waiting to have Lucy's ice cream since we booked our trip. Made the hike into the village from our condo in Norte Akumal for some of Lucy's ice cream. Huge disappointment! Tasted old and granular, not smooth and rich, as in previous years when we would come every day for tasty treat. Maybe Lucy isn't there or... More
