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.
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.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • _meggan_coleby : Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom
loved it here

our room was kept very clean. The food was very nice and the buffet was the nicest one ive ever had. the pool area was always clean and there was always enough sunbeds for the pool or beach. towels were refreshed every couple of hours so you never were without towels

Great location, friendly service, good facilities.

The resort itself has lots to do right on site, so you could easily spend your whole time there without leaving the resort. Excellent snorkeling right off the beach, paddleboarding lessons, yoga classes, tequila tasting events just to name a few. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Facilities are very clean, beds are comfortable, and the food is decent. All in all, would recommend to anyone who's looking for a relaxing getaway.

First resort that I would come back to

Read most of the recent reviews and they are quite accurate. Thus we knew exactly what we were getting in for. We are by no means Mexican Resort experts as this was only our 3rd time having tried two other resorts in the general area, all south of Playa. What I can say about this resort. - compared to others we have stayed at this is on the small side. For me, my wife and adult daughter (21) this was perfect as it was more intimate and you didn't have to walk very far or shuttle anywhere. From our building it was less than 30 yards to the beach and 75 yards to the main hub where the buffet and most of the other a la carte restaurants are. - no reservations required at any of the a la carte restaurants and unlimited times as well. Only one of the three had a wait to seat. - the beach, first place I've been down here that was not rocky and covered in huge amounts of sea weed every morning. Very sandy. Crystal clear water. No water shoes required and ample marine creatures. - staff were excellent. Not one bad thing to say. Always happy, hard working. I read one review that said some of the staff didn't smile at them or say hello. Really? Get over yourself. They are busy and may have something on their mind. I see a lot of tourists who are complete jerks. - pools here are small and no swim up bar. We knew that and that's ok for us. The beach makes up for that. But if that's ur thing you will be disappointed. - no night club. See above comment :). Main lounge with bar that's seats about 200 or so right by the beach. Stays open till about 23:00 hrs. Open and airy sea breeze. Nightly entertainment - musicians different themes every night. Again this isn't Broadway or Vegas. So relax with the negative comments. - average age of guests while here was prob around 40 plus. It was prob one of the best relaxing stays I've had in a long time.- didn't see a lot of small kids. Maybe less than half dozen. Which for us was great as our kids are bigger. The ones that were here were well behaved. There were staff members that "babysat/entertained" while maybe mom n dad went to yoga or something. - this is the first place we would consider coming back which sums it up.
