The real The difference between hotels and all inclusive resorts is in the details, the thoughtful services and amenities those properties provide.Some of those details that you'll appreciate at the Bahia Akumal include butlers to take care of your individual needs, complimentary minibars, included premium beverages, and bathroom amenities that include a toothbrush and shaving kit. Free Wi-Fi is also
available throughout the resort.

 A recent stay at the family welcoming Bahia Akumal, one of their luxury Don Pablo Collection, demonstrated that they are a step ahead of most other luxury all-inclusive resorts. This is the reason many of their guests come back year after year. The resort has 758 rooms, including 128 newly added in November 2015. The resorts' all-adults sister property, Sian Ka'An is located nearby on their magnificent golf course/club designed by Robert Trent Jones 11.

For those interested in learning about the Eco-Preservation of the Riviera Maya the resort has an extensive certified program to preserve the eco balance of the region that has the second largest barrier reef in the world and the nesting sites of the Central American river turtles. Also on site is a Nature Interpretation Center that you can observe local birds, and learn about the medicinal benefits of local plants.  For more details please visit: .

Dining at the Akumal is very good overall at their 4 restaurants and exceptional at their 2 A la Carte restaurants for dinner.  The selection pictured is from the Gourmet Arlequin restaurant, demonstrating the artful presentation you can expect. An additional restaurant will be opening shortly that will be serving a light lunch and cocktails during the day and become an A la carte Brazilian style restaurant during the evening.

The Rivera Maya, near Cancun Mexico, is ideally suited to both adult and family vacationers since there are both a wonderful selection of resorts and nearby ancient and modern Mayan sites to explore and learn about this important civilization. A highly recommended tour that can be arranged at the resort will take you to the sites of Coba, Tankah, and Tulum. At Coba, settled 100BC,  you have the opportunity to climb the tallest pyramid in the Yucatan. At Tankah you will have the opportunity to enjoy the lush setting, swim in one of their natural sink wells, go ziplining, and feast on traditional Mayan food. Tulum,  a well preserved site important to the history of the trading economy of the Mayan culture, is the only walled structure built on the shores of the Caribbean sea.
