Akumal is a small town between Playa del Carmen and Tulum offering luxery resorts on a picture perfect white beach. We had decided that we wanted to try staying in a luxery resort before going home. We researched a lot while we were in Tulum and found a last minute all-inclusive deal for Barcelo Maya Beach Resort.
The place was huge offering multiple large pools, many restaurants, fitnesscenter, great beach and lots of activities. Best of all was the free room service which made it possible to order cold beers when our boy was asleep or to have dinner in our room when our boy was to tired to go out.
The room was as the rest of the resort huge having a livingroom and bedroom and a massive bathroom.
Before going to a resort this size I had been a little nervous to bring our baby, thinking that the resort would be mostly adults. But there were lots of kids, and our baby boy was welcomed in all the restaurants and offered a high chair and speciel prepared baby food. All the restaurants in the resort offer freshly prepared delicious food instead of buffets and it makes a huge difference in the restaurant experience.
There are lots of turtles in the sea at Akumal and you can snorkle with them just of the beach. It is a great experience being in the water watching the turtles swim by.
We really enjoyed the lyxery but after a few days it honestly got a bit dull and we were ready to move on.
We drove to Playa del Carmen to catch a ferry to Cozumel.Share on Facebook
