All 241 guest rooms are located within steps of the ocean and feature breathtaking views of Akumal Bay. The gracious staff strives to provide guests with a sophisticated simplicity and friendly service in the intimate atmosphere of a small resort.

Of course when you think of Akumal, you think of world-class snorkeling. Akumal Beach Resort offers some of the finest saltwater snorkeling in the Caribbean. This is an adventure you cannot miss! A live coral reef awaits, just steps from your room, within the tranquil waters of Akumal Bay. Sea turtles, manta rays, and many schools of fishes are just waiting to be discovered.

Participate in the activity of a lifetime and release baby sea turtles! Experience the opportunity to live "Nature without limits". Four of eight species of turtles in the world inhabit the beaches of Akumal and every year they come to nest here April through September. Last year 37,000 turtles were born on this beach. Guests are able to enjoy unique moments swimming and snorkeling with the turtles.

Enjoy a relaxed vacation on a world-renowned beach featuring great food, great staff, and great food and drink to ease your cares away.
