For those who have been there in the recent weeks or so, has the buffet resumed any type of normal operations? When we were there in October the buffet was operating as an a la carte, and all the food stations were closed down. Have they reopened it as a buffet?

Also, has the brazillian grill and the mini bar in front of building 3 opened back up? Are they using other buildings now? I guess my questions are more, are they back to normal operations?

Teresa, those are all great questions. I suggest you join the Akumal Bay - Beach and Wellness Resort Friends group on Facebook. It has 20,000 members and they will answer you almost immediately. I joined FB just for this group.

Just visited in mid-March and the breakfast was a buffet. Lunch and dinner were a la carte. The Brazilian restaurant was not open yet. Not sure which bar you are referring to but there were bars open aplenty! Never had any difficulties getting something to drink.

I also belong to many of these Facebook groups (and been visiting the ABR/ABBWR resort since 2006).

Great advice from Suzanne.

As bldg 3 & 4 open up, then will their mini bars

Just trying to get a feel for how close normal operations are. They typically have a mini bar set up in front of buildings 1 and 3 but, due to only using building 1 while occupancy is low, they didn't have the one in front of building 3 open. We still hung out down there in front of buildings 3 and 4 when we were there in October 2020, and had no issue getting something to drink from the lobby bar, and once they figured out we were there they checked on us.
