My husband & I enjoyed a beautiful week at ABBWR Jan 19 to 26. We tried each of the restaurants and enjoyed the food at all of them. The “signature welcome” drink that was different at each of the a la carte restaurants was a nice touch. At the buffet restaurant it was, however, difficult to get a table at...

My very large family of 43 stayed over the Christmas holiday week. We even brought my 94-year-old dad who was able to navigate most of the resort with his walker since it is pretty flat and accessible. The staff at the hotel were welcoming, friendly and very helpful. Several nights they accommodated us by setting up large tables in the...

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
