We were two weeks at Akumal Bay Beach & Wellness Resort in May 2022. It was very nice vacation. The service was outstanding! Special thanks to Belen (Public Relations), Ricardo, Filip and Miriam (Front Desk), Gustavo and Daniela (Buffet), Eulacio (Bar), Gloria, Jared, Priscila, Javier and Alejandra (Animation Team) for showing outstanding service and friendship!!! We will definitely return back to Akumal Bay.

This place is now rife with money grabbing companies, with no interest in ecology. We went snorkelling to see the turtles. For this we had to pay a guide. The problem was there were hundreds of other people, out of control, clamouring, shouting and screaming to view the poor turtles Supposedly in a natural environment and feeding grounds. I’m very surprised the Mexican government allow this sacrilegious enterprise all for making profit.

This use to be a wonderful place now ruined by money grabbing rip of artists. Beach is now blocked off and you cannot get onto the beach unless you pay a minimum of 6$ each that's American not Mexican.only allowed to swim paddle in a very limited area and you can only snorkel out to see the turtles in you pay to join a tour! Well I hope the local businesses and authority are happy with their self's as they have ruined what was a little piece of paradise.
I will not return.

beautiful beach, If going look for the casitas if you don't want to stay in an all inclusive as they are great and on the beach. The snorkelling is not great unless you take a tour.

Great beach very kept slot of hard work goes into clearing the seaweed you can see the staff working from very early in the morning. There is loads to do snorkeling with turtles is a great experience form the dive shop. Fishing also available there for Mahi mahi $200 per boat I did catch anything unfortunately. It’s a great beach for activities also paddle boarding and volleyball infront of ABBWR the paddle board guy is top class and great fun

The resort was a good time but the sunscape bartender horacio Perez was the ultimate highlight! He knows his stuff and knows how to communicate and have a great time, and definitely puts on a show. This man deserves a raise, and deserves the gratification. Definitely check him out if you come.

0*. We drove here from the centre of Tulum, as we’d heard this was the best place to see turtles. When we arrived in our car we were bombarded with tour guides, thrusting laminates of their snorkelling tours/ parking at our windscreen. We then parked outside a store near the entrance and walked over to the OXXO next to it as they had an ATM. A man rudely told us you can only park there if you buy from that shop- which was hilarious because the shops were next door to each other. We left before we even had attempted to get in. Do not bother! Tourist trap and rip off, go and find the quiet beaches that preserve wildlife not take advantage of them for money!

A lot of red algae directly in front of the hotel at UNICO 20 87. It appears that the beaches are cleaner closer to Play Del Carmen or near the Cozumel Ferry.
