Beautiful location directly on the beach. It did snorkeling every day in the coral reef and sea turtles for Block 6 is probably the best location close to everything but quieter than 5 for those who do not hear the music . All rooms have sea views

Positive :

Very friendly staff, simple and quiet place in my opinion is a 4 star and why he did not is because of the simplicity of the rooms (no bath or fridge) as everything else it really deserves it.

Negative :

I fear that in a few years this hotel losing its charm and simplicity because at the other end of the site there are some buildings that have been razed and new construction began. They also plan to build two additional floors on existing ones .... I hope it does not become one of those big impersonal resort: (

I liked this small hotel whose buildings do not exceed three floors and is therefore discrete view of the beach. The roofs of palm leaves some buildings allows it to blend advantage in the surrounding nature. The buffet offers dishes that are good but not gourmet and varied. All staff Sunwing before my departure, on arrival at Cancun and back was an unbeatable professionalism. Thank you.

Positive :

Nice clean rooms with balconies and sea views Great beach kept clean by daily cleaning warm and clear sea with corals, tropical fish, turtles 50m from the beach Quiet, ideal for rest The small village of akumal is located at one end of the range

Negative :

No negative comments against my stay a week in early August. I only want it to return By cons I am worried by a construction project that will double the customers in the coming years. The ecosystem may be greatly disturbed such as corals close to the beach and turtles which lay eggs, for too many people on the beach.

Comments from diane-leblanc1 on Akumal Beach Resort
:

We loved this hotel although the rooms are dated. The fact remains that they all have sea views Block 6 is the best place to stay. For my part I found the bed very comfortable and we never ran out of hot water. For cons, the air conditioning system might have to be changed because it is more or less effective but you can always open the patio door and sleep to the sound of wind and waves. It was super clean, super quiet and we ate really well. The dining room is directly on the beach, the breakfasts are excellent, there is never a queue, the food in general is always fresh although the choice is limited but it is always good. Everything is close, it is never packed on the beach and there are always chairs available. By cons, be careful where you enter the water as a result of the reef, there's rock in the water but there is a place on the beach where it is very beautiful . And it is true that there are sea turtles because I had the chance to see one (loggerhead turtle) while snorkeling in the small port of Akumal, 5 minutes from the beach of hotel, it's really exciting. For those who are not necessarily looking for luxury, I highly recommend it.

Positive :

In general, everything was fine. The hotel workers are very nice, and never feels obliged to tip. Tulum is close. I recommend the Altournative excursion, Tulum Jungle and Maya. Pleasure + + Descent into cenote harness, snorkel in cenotes, zip line through the jungle and meals in a Mayan village.

Negative :

1 - the wine is not drinkable. So if you can, you make a reservation in Playa del Carmen and bring your own wine to the dining room. I do not mind at all servers. 2 - Air conditioning that does not cool enough.

Hotel 3 1/2 * 4 * with food and service 5 * Beach 1

Positive :

Our best trip south to this day my wife and I! 1 to 8 September 2012 Arrived at the hotel every 2 only mini-van. About 1 1/4 hours from the airport. Smiling and friendly at reception (ca it's rare). Room down the block 7, away from everything. Best, because the most beautiful beach is left is to have the block 5 (behind the pool) or otherwise block 3 or 4. Superior room is plain but thought. Storage limited but adequate. No problems with hot water, air conditioning, toilet ... Large flat TV on the wall. The box is free (a key). Hairdryer but no fridge or coffee maker. Large balcony with sea view for almost all the rooms of all the blocks. Medium size hotel as a site. Ordinary pool, bar directly without clean water. 1 a la carte restaurant not tried (and great food at the buffet). Buffet glued to the sea, you eat and watch the sea I'm very picky and I confess that I ate like never before (chicken, pork, beef, fish, spaghetti, pizza ....). Everything is very good and the variety is correct. Snack bar to eat near the sea (hot dogs, Hambergers, pizza, ice cream ...) EVERYWHERE staff was friendly, courteous and fast .... never seen elsewhere!! The sea, yes SEA: white sand, clear water (unless it's windy too). Swimming smoothly and snorkel on the left side of the hotel. Forget the right side. J, did the snorkel envoron 20 times a week. Always a surprise every time, and especially different fish swim and watch the big turtles eat (people leave throughout Mexico for this). Bring your own mask, snorkel and fins. I've rented a lifejacket for $ 5.00 the day. Easier to stabilize to look deep water and safer to go further. Paradise snorkel and dive. Natural site turtle nesting, these places are protected by small fences. Early September, hotel probably about 25% full. No waiting ... Mexican families in the summer and on weekends the rest of the year, no problem! Do not forget that this Mexican hotel and run by Mexicans. You can rely on the positive reviews on Trip Advisor, it's true! Excellent service bars (3 bars). Enough palapas and trees for shade to the beach. Not much shade at the pool. Short distance to walk to the right of the hotel, but more to the left. Left immediately after the hotel there is a large bar and a large restaurant paying. At this point, there are many tourists who come for the day long snorkel or scuba diving or deep sea fishing nearly all these buildings, there are also souvenir shops and the village of Akumal close. Retout to the Cancun airport is very big with lots of shops and restaurants ... but everything is very expensive. FANTASTIC VOYAGE, the first time in 8 years and many trips I would go more than once in the same place, that says it all!!!!! L, try to adopt it.

Negative :

Hard beds and pillows. No fridge and coffee maker in the rooms.

If the beach and snorkeling are most important to you that the beauty of the room is the place to go. If you prefer warm human contact, rather than partying is what you find.

Positive :

The friendly staff, large beach, incredible diving, the perfect location

Negative :

The renovations are going well, but the rooms and the buffet are three stars

The site is not a 5 star but we forget all that with the quality of the beach, the best diving, friendly staff and a very decent buffet. Restaurant a la carte? There are only two that were open in turn.

Positive :

One of the most beautiful spot of the Caribbean for snorkeling (directly outside the hotel) The staff is super friendly. The beach is beautiful

Negative :

The site is a little run
