Our Opinion

Please note that the Akumal Beach Resort has been renovated and re-named Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort.
A great resort. The rooms are in need of a little upgrading. However, they are very spacious, and the staff will cater to your requests to ensure that you are comfortable in your room. The majority of food served in this resort is Mexican cuisine, and it has an OK variety of alcohol on the shelf. This is a resort more suited for those who want to venture away from the resort facilities and enjoy the beach and wildlife that surrounds it.

Akumal Beach Resort

Explore the natural wonders of the Mayan Riviera from this ideally situated all-inclusive. Golf at the nearby Puerto Aventuras course or visit the natural aquarium of Xel-Ha and the ancient ruins of Tulum. After your outings, relax under the giant palapa roof of the beachside main restaurant and admire the beautiful ocean view. Families appreciate the spacious accommodations, fun Kids' Club, kilometre-long white sandy beach and calm reef-protected waters.
Location: Beachfront, 20 min to Playa del Carmen, 60 min from the airport.
