This huge hotel is pulled up next to its own private beach area. It comes with a great pool scene, three à la carte restaurants and an 18-hole golf course nearby.
The hotel is one of three in a super-sized complex. Golf buggies whisk guests to the countless restaurants and bars. Speaking of golf, you’ll have access to the Riviera Maya Golf Club*, a couple of minutes’ drive away. Plus, it’s 35 minutes to the shops of Playa del Carmen.
This Mayan-inspired place is part of the luxe Don Pablo collection, so junior suites come as standard. Expect butler service, an indulgent pillow menu and a mini-fridge for kids, stocked with juices and milkshakes. Book an Oceanfront Suite for striking sea views.

This was a great experience. As well as the food, service and amenities which were outstanding, the beach was a great surprise. There are several areas with breakwaters and very calm and shallow waters so that everyone including children could spend hours there if they wished. We would certainly come back again.More
My husband and I just returned from Akumal and we can't say enough wonderful things about it. We booked with Apple Vacations and they had a really nice BBQ for us one night with a buffet dinner and entertainment. It was great! The resort is gorgeous, rooms were always clean and comfortable and we had a Butler that checked with us everyday to see if we needed anything. The beach was really nice and I loved the stretching, zumba and aerobics everyday along with a lot of other things you could participate in if you so desired. All the staff was so friendly and helpful. We ate at 4 different restaurants which were all good but our favorite was the Dolce Vita. The main buffet was wonderful, it had such a variety that there was something for everyone. We will definitely recommend this resort and we will return! They are doing everything right!More

9th Time to GPB-Mexico
We traveled April 3 - 10 through Apple Vacations. This was our 9th time visiting this top notch resort in Mexico (we stayed a other GBP in Jamaica & DR) and we're not disappointed. We've stayed at Coba 6 times, San Kian 2 twice, and this time we decided to try Akumal. We're extremely satisfied. At check-in, we didn't get the room requested but were given the option to move the next day to Building 68, and loved it. It was near the new infinity pool, close to beach with a fantastic view of the ocean, close to transportation and the new restaurant. We'd request this building again. Employees who made our vacation extra special were Gabriel at check-in, Jose bell boy, and big thank you to Mario,Guest Services Manager,who made sure our needs were met. Also pleased that the Tao Wellness Center is still available to guest. I love being able to catch a 60 minute yoga class few times per week. To summarize, excellent staff, great service, beautiful weather, great food & drinks, beautiful facilities, and spectacular beach. We can't wait to return for #10!More
