  • The beach is public but if you wish to swim where the turtles are feeding you must wear a safety vest (which we had to rent at the dive shop) and fins are prohibited for the safety of the turtles. The...  read more »
  • Best day out at the beach. Ever. Go on your own. Take your own snorkelling stuff. Swim out and do your own thing. Ignore the guides - you don't need them. Waterproof camera is all you need. 
  • If your a confident swimmer ignore all the tour guides and touts when you 1st get onto the beach. You can swim out on your own and see the turtles. Bring your own mask and snorkel or just goggles as w...  read more »
  • We stayed 7 days for our honeymoon and couldn't be more satisfied with the resort. The food was absolutely amazing. They have 5 different restaurants and a snack/sushi bar all fresh, tasty and with lots variety. They keep the rooms clean and all seem to work hard as a family to make sure everyone is well taken care of. They
  • WE love Akumal and have stayed at this resort twice now. However our last visit in the Spring we had a room that smelled of mildew and the ac made EVERYTHING in the room wet! WE couldn't use the ac. Luckily there was enough wind flowing through to save us but what a drag! WE like the buffet and the view there. The beach is crowded and IF you want a sun shelter to put a lounge chair under....good luck! You will have to be out there by 6 a.m. to snag your spot like everyone else. That is also a real drag! The turtles are wonderful though and the seaweed is clearing up. The first time we went there a couple of years ago....the seaweed was horrendous...... The staff is very friendly though and they try to keep the beach cleaned up.....The biggest drag is that the price of this resort has gone way up so we are not sure if we will go there this next year.
  • Great people great staff. Tania our concierge! Wilbert main Bar always fun and entertaining excellent service Jazmin as well. Sintia as well. Hombre Orquesta Ageless was amazing what he can do with his one man band instruments! All the staff at the Sushi Bar as well as the front bar. All the staff is part of the great experience and really make our stay fun. Always smiling always laughing while working their tails off.
  • Great beach, quiet resort. Very hot in restaurants and the food selection is mediocre. Room views are amazing.
  • We stayed here for our honeymoon last summer and it was PERFECT! Relaxing, fantastic snorkeling and the staff were exceptionally professional, kind and welcoming. We loved every minute of our stay. The hotel is beautifully designed and well maintained. The food is delicious. You will love your stay!!
