nice :) i actually looked them up on tripadvisor today and look what i found!

TripAdvisor Popularity Index:
#1 of 20 restaurants in Akumal
Cuisines: American
Price range*: $25-$195
Recommended For: Breakfast/Brunch
Address: Plaza Ukana, Akumal 77770, Mexico
Phone: 984-875-9138
Website: "Turtle Bay Cafe and Bakery", Akumal, Riviera Maya, Mexico, full service restaurant

“Heard this was the place for breakfast in Akumal and we were not disappointed! The crab cake benedict was just what I wanted. The hollandaise was good and with a hint of spice I could not name. My friend had crispy tortillas under huevos rancheros with tasty beans and sour cream. Upon tasting our first bites we both went "mmm" at the same time.
We sat in the large, open air palapa and chatted with an American now living in Akumal, working and helping with spay and neuter programs. The cafe sometimes does benefits for programs there. The wait staff was busy, efficient and polite. We left a big tip and a "Muy Rico!" to let them know how much we did like it, in case they missed our obvious pleasure.

According to their website, breakfast is served 7am-12, lunch 12-3pm daily and dinner Tuesday - Saturday 6-9pm. Also the bakery is available for wedding cakes. They offer free wi-fi for patrons.
We each had coca lites and jugo de pinas and our total was about $20. Very well spent. I highly recommend The Turtle Bay Cafe!”

You get there by veering to the left as you come through the “front gate” of Akumal. Its in a little cluster of restaurants and shops.

so yes we will for SURE be going there in about 12 days, give or take wink.gif there were 5 reviews (i think) on TA and they were all good, except for one food snob wink.gif hehehe

Although, the cake we got was free, so I suppose that helped make it taste better too!
um yes, free cake ALWAYS tastes better wink.gif

I think Jac was referring to Lol Ha ~ Akumal's most well-known restaurant. And I heard the food there is delish too!!!

As far as my wedding locale, here's the thread I posted a llllooong time ago with all the details rolleyes.gif http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t31355

We are spending our first week in Akumal, renting the Casa Romero Compound (the villa and the Blue Tang and French Angel townhomes for about 30 immediate family members here) on Yal Ku Lagoon ~ super excited!!! elefant.gif Here's that link: Casa Romero: Akumal villa, Yal ku lagoon, Riviera Maya, Mexico

Oh and our second week will be spent at the Grand Mayan Resort on the Riviera Maya. Aaah can't wait!!!

And YES Abs, the owners of TBC are so sweet -- Jen and Bart. You MUST eat there breakfast, lunch or dinner is fantastic!!! And yep, they got free WI-FI woot woot woot.gif

LOL. The snack palapa is known as snack palapa or the north palapa and is part of the Lol-Ha restaurant. Not actually the Lol-Ha restaurant. Here are some pics of the palapa, it's not really a snack "hut" per say:

Joe and I are staying in the villa-taj kumal Taj Kumal: Akumal vacation rental villa, beach front house


AAAHHH can't wait!

And our guests are staying at the hotel akumal caribe. They have some bungalows not far off the beach. The bungalows have BBQ's so everyone wants to stay there so we can cook our own food.

MarieSam - I'm just in the beginning stages of planning my wedding (not till next year) but we're going to have ours in Akumal, and I've been in contact with Jenn about catering and having her plan it... how's your experience with her been so far? Where in Akumal are you having your wedding? We're doing ours at one of three villas (I can't decide!) and Jen seems to be pretty helpful so far... Would love any tips/things to watch out for if you've noticed anything!

LOL "How cool are you?" MarieSam!!! hey KW thus far I haven't ran into any issues in Akumal. Jenn is great! She is VERY busy though. So sometimes it takes her a while to reply to you, but don't worry she will!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
