We loved this placed because it is simple, yet well done with modern fresh design. The king sized beds were huge with super comfortable mattress toppers and the apartment had everything we needed. To stay here you need to be looking for a different experience than a luxury impersonal hotel that has wiped out all of the coastal mangrove, and be prepared to get in the car and explore the area given the advice and tips you receive. We went to a fabulous beach and fish hut, with hammocks and plastic tables and chairs where the water is calm and with good snorkelling all for no minimum spend which is rare with all of the private beaches about. The place was full of Mexicans, as not many tourists know about it. You get talking to people around the site which is nice. Do be prepared though, this is the jungle, there will be mossies, ants if you leave stuff about, interesting bugs, butterflies and birds, a few resident iguanas that like banana, and you may see some snakes even! It's lovely to sit out and listen to by the pool or on the terrace. We definitely hope to come back!

Room tip: we stayed twice and like the spacious king sized studio with adjoining double room,- we could put our child to bed and shut the door!

Please don't let the words CAMP or Jungle give you the wrong impression. This is an impressive property oasis with shade and crystal clear pools. The suites are well appointed and very comfortable. Full sized refrigerators and kitchens well stocked with all you need to prepare and serve the meal of your choice. Two BBQ grills with plenty of outdoor eating space. You can literally be seated and ordering food within 10-15 minutes of leaving the property at a local restaurant. The hosts Kurt and Lyn are warm and welcoming. They have extensive knowledge of the area and are eager to share some lesser known treasured places to visit. This place is awesome! My wife and I had the best time ever and have been vacationing in the Riviera Maya for 10 years. We will certainly come back to Camp Akumal the Jungle Hotel. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed. We chose airport pick up and drop off, on site car rental. They have beach chairs and snorkel equipment. Everything you need to explore cenotes and the wonderful beach clubs from this centrally located location. Leave your worries behind and experience the peace and tranquility that this jungle oasis offers. The lights at night over the walkways are charming and illuminate the beauty of the foliage. Colorful birds, butterflies and iguanas will brighten your mornings as you enjoy a cup of coffee or hot tea poolside or swinging in one of the hammocks.

I felt compelled to write this review in regard to the owners of Camp Akumal. While we ended up booking another more central location for our extended Mexican vacation, I greatly appreciated the time and effort that Dana took to answer my inquiries and to accommodate our needs. I am sure that she is a wonderful and caring hostess and that Camp Akumal offers a wonderful community atmosphere.

We loved staying here- perfect balance of quiet and peace- with the added charm of socializing with your neighbors if you want to. Hang out by the pool- read a book in a hammock- grill a meal in the yard. Quiet place in the jungle not far from everything. We rented a car from them as well- and paid them for Cancun airport pickup and delivery- all went smoothly. Super friendly management, and responsive service- many thoughtful touches. Hope to come back some day.

Room tip: The one bedroom with kitchenette was great for 1 couple.

We had a very, very nice stay in the Camp Akumal. It's a very good base to go to explore the region. Even if you want to go to visit Playa del Carmen or Tulum, or also Coba, it's the hotel to go. The owners are everytime ready to give you informations and secrets spots!
Our room was decorated with taste, original, and with a lot of place!
The hotel is in the middle of the jungle, but not far from the highway 307, so it's quiet and you can go everywhere without losting time, but the best way to go is to rent a car. Also the hotel provide car rentals! What more? Two pools and barbecues, a nice terrasse to share moments, and you are only at 5 min driving from the Akumal beach, where you can swim with big sea turtles!!
Ps : the hotel is very clean, and the price was very correct for the service : we will be back soon !!!
