Small resort food ok , service very good, beach small but good snorkling, hottub on every balcony was the bomb. Not be able to walk beach at night because of turtles was a bummer. Resort about 1 hour from airport just to damn far including the 10 stops dropping of others at resorts.

This is a beautiful resort!! The highlights are the beach, the turtles, the yoga, the service, the jacuzzi's on the balcony and the ocean view from the room. We would go back in a heartbeat. If you are looking for a smaller resort to relax and recharge this is the place for you!!

Perfect for our extended family of 14 people ranging from 4 to 70 yrs. old. Special mention: staff go out of their way to please (and they say they like working there); good food, proximity to beach, snorkelling, yoga, children's program.

Wonderful resort - have been there in the past, but now with the remodel - it was fantastic. The restaurants were so much better, the room was gigantic, the waiters, hostesses and bar staff all went above and beyond to help. We enjoyed it immensely! Our favorite restaurant was the Japanese, but the Mexican and Gourmet were right up there...

We stayed at ABBWR for one week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Service was exceptional from all employees. Even in the Buffet you felt like you were in a Fine Dining Restaurant...the food was excellent in all areas except Room Service, we ordered a pizza one night and it was inedible.

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

“Corner rooms are larger, but that means they don't cool as well. We'd rather the smaller room.”
  • This room set-up, with the extra bed, is difficult to cool due to its place in the building
