The Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort in Mexico is perfect for a family vacation or a romantic getaway for couples. The resort is all-inclusive with four a la carte restaurants, a buffet, sushi bar, 24-hour snack bar and room service.
The resort is located one hour and thirty minutes from the Cancun Airport. You can simply relax and enjoy sightseeing along the way. When you arrive at the resort, you will be presented with a welcome cocktail that will make you shout, gracias! gracias!
The Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort is an all suites property. Every room has a balcony, hot tub, oceanfront view, and fully-stocked mini bar for guests to enjoy at no additional charge.
The resort offers free WiFi, so my teenage daughter was elated. The WiFi is accessible throughout the property and even on the beach.
Guests can enjoy the white sandy beach, world-class snorkeling with sea turtles, diving and paddle boarding. If you want a break from the ocean, the resort has a spa, fitness center, tennis courts and several pools.
There is a full schedule of activities throughout the day to keep everyone entertained. Yoga, pilates, dance lessons, aqua gym, cooking classes, tequila tasting and much more. Live music was offered at the sports bar every evening during our stay. This was the perfect venue to dance the night away or mingle with other guests. We did both!
Excursions depart from the resort throughout the day to the ancient Mayan ruins of Tulum and the natural wonders of the Yucatan Peninsula. You can explore caves and tunnels or swim with the whales. There are endless excursions available for your pleasure.
The resort grounds are pristine and the staff is friendly and professional.
To our surprise, a dessert platter was delivered to our suite the night before we were scheduled to depart. We indulged on delicious treats as we reminisced on our amazing week in paradise.
Until next time, Akumal (Place of the Turtle)!
