Loved Akumal Beach Resort!
My husband and I were looking for a quiet, beachfront, tropical, relaxing vacation as a belated honeymoon and we definitely found it at Akumal Beach Resort! Most of the resort was closed for renovations and while that may scare some people away, it was a huge bonus for us! There were hardly any people there, we had the pool to ourselves most of the time, no problems finding beach chairs, yet there were still people to meet and talk to in the evenings in the main bar. The room had a gorgeous view of the ocean and overlooked the pool. The beach is right in front of the resort, no shuttles or long walks to get anywhere. The rooms, the pool, the restaurant, the main bar, everything is right on the beach. The snorkeling and swimming right out in front of the resort is great! People have complained about the beds and pillows but I thought they were absolutely fine. The rooms are not like American 5-star standards but they are more than sufficient and kept very clean. The AC in the room was lacking. It stayed nice and cool for most of the day and night but they seemed to turn it off around 3am-6am or something and the temperature in the room would be the same as outside. But they are renovating soon. There were activities in the afternoons by the pool and entertainment every evening in the main bar at 9pm. There is snorkeling gear and floating chairs to borrow and the beach towels are nice a big. The staff is very friendly and you get to know them a little throughout the stay because they are always there and available. We also felt that they did a great job quietly behind the scenes taking care of guests to make sure no one drank too much, or got lost or hurt or anything. The dinner buffet was ok. There were always local Mexican food options and mini tres leches cakes that I loved! The pool side snack bar was my favorite food option, open from 12-6, hamburgers, hotdogs, ice cream, chips and guacamole and pico de gallo plus a full bar. Apparently the thing to do is buy or bring a big tumbler or insulated beverage holder and fill it with lemonade or beer or to make iced coffee every morning like I did. Then you are set for the beach! We ended up going out for at least one meal a day because there are also some great restaurants in walking distance. They had shuttle and taxi services available all the time, but we had rented a car so we could venture out to Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Xel-Ha etc. Everything was a short drive from the resort. Best snorkeling I've ever done at Yal-Ku and Xel-Ha!! We could not have had a better place for what we were looking for! The day before we left it did fill up with more people, the pool and main bar were noticeably more rowdy. But still nothing compared to the big resorts in Cancun or Playacar. And I suspect once renovations are complete, and the new resort goes in next door, it will never be so quiet again. We really lucked out with our week at Akumal Beach Resort!! It was perfect!
