Premium holidays made for you.

Nestled on a protected bay where Green Sea turtles nest in summer. Snorkel in the crystal waters as you marvel at these majestic creatures. Akumal Bay Beach & Wellness Resort offers sophisticated simplicity and attentive service in the intimacy of a small resort. After a day in the sun and a delicious meal, return to your oceanfront room and soak in your private whirlpool.

this was a truly awsome holiday. we were upgraded to a penthouse suite free of charge and as this was a wedding anniversary holiday it was a lovely surprise. i cannot praise this hotel enough, from the staff who are always smiling,to the amazing sea view from every room. this is smaller than most hotels but at no time did it seem busy. if you wanted a drink a waitress would appear as if they could read your mind. the restaurants were all very good but i prefered the buffet as i like to pick and choose for myself. we swam with the turtles four times and each time was amazing. we also had photos taken by conrado the photographer at the hotel and i actually liked them which is a first for me as i do not like having my photo taken, but he was very good at his job and you could tell he had a real passion for his work.this all helped to make this holiday my favourite to date. we have already started saving so we can go back. if you are looking for a place to relax and unwind i can reccomend this hotel. it really is a dream destination.

I cannot praise the Akumal Bay Beach and Wellness Resort highly enough, we have just had a perfect holiday. If you are after a relaxing holiday, with wonderful food, great service and an idyllic location then it fits the bill. ABBWR is a relatively small resort and the entertainment programme is quiet and low key so it won't suit those seeking an exciting nightlife but Cancun is not far away and Thomas Cook offers a variety of excursions. There are also options of excursions to the many nearby attractions but I must confess that we did not leave the resort other than for a few walks along the white coral sand beach. We swam, read, talked, enjoyed the sunshine and wonderful food and drink and totally relaxed, just what a holiday should be.

We traveled to this hotel from the 30th April until 14th May and had a fantastic holiday. I can't find fault in the hotel, lovely food, friendly staff, beautiful beach. Was going to book to go back next year, however, it cost us £2367.98 but if I want to go next year it will cost £3300 nearly £1000 more! Beautiful hotel yes but I can't justify paying that much more!

This hotel was absolutely fantastic, staff, food and facilities were all impeccable. There is plenty of choice for food and with all of the activities you won't get bored! I would and have recommended this place to everyone I know, the flight wasn't brilliant and I found the place rather cramped this was the only part of the holiday that wasn't 5*!
