Although the marine park abounds with turtles, especially Green Turtles, there is no way to guarantee seeing any turtles at any particular reef. The bay in Akumal is full of turtles and most people who snorkel there, to view them, are usually successful in finding them. Stay inside the bay. Do not go out into the open water. The area outside the bay can be full of Bull sharks.

For whatever reason, over 95% of my photos of turtles from dives within the Marine Park are of Hawksbill Sea Turtles. I do have a few Green Sea Turtles, but maybe I repel them or something.
My family like to go to Akumal when they want to snorkel rather than scuba with sea turtles. I haven't been, but they really like it. I've only seen a turtle, and that from a distance, a couple of times while snorkeling in Cozumel.

Go to Akumal. However, they bring hordes of day tripper snorkel tours so it is not that fun any longer.

Learn to dive. I always see at least one turtle every dive and that is just the beginning!!
