First time at all inclusive

The room was ok - had a running toilet but was decorated to celebrate our birthdays. Restaurants were ok. French was the best. Concierge unavailable except for first day. Beautiful beach.

Very impressed

The resort was so impressive. Everything was gorgeous and the service was the best I've ever experienced. You don't even need to leave to see the best snorkeling around, sea turtles just off our beach!

AMAZING Honeymoon

My husband and I just got home from Secrets Akumal last night and we had a wonderful time! The room was beautiful (junior swim out room) and clean with a very comfortable bed and a gorgeous shower. The food and service was OUTSTANDING! We dined early (around 6pm or 7pm) and did not have to wait long for our food. There wasn't a meal we didn't like! Every waiter was courteous and professional. We tried to eat at every restaurant and couldn't decide which was our favorite. The pools and beach were unbelievable. There are three different pools with different atmospheres. They were extremely clean and the servers would walk around and take drink orders. We don't have a single complaint. I'm sure there would be more of a wait for everything during the busy season (Nov. through May) so we're super happy we got to go in Sept.

What's to Love

After a flight with germ-ridden humans, the cool towel and welcome cocktail refresh body and soul.

Elegant, hip suites in warm woods and bright pinks & reds that include a private balcony or terrace.

Many fantabulous suites have in-suite Jacuzzis for two and heart-stopping ocean views. (For realz).

Akumal means "Place of the Turtles" so you can swim, snorkel, and even talk to these magic creatures.

Secrets box for private room service delivery - you don't ever have to see a human if you don't want to.

Descending into Relaxation Central (the spa) with the hydrotherapy circuit and a Swedish massage.

Snorkeling at the second largest barrier reef in the world and enjoying hours of coral-gazing and fish-ogling.

 

What We'd Change

The drive from the airport is a little lengthy at an hour long, but the seclusion on top of the fact you're only 20 minutes away from famous Playa del Carmen more than makes up for it.

 

Why You Should Go

You're an hour away from the airport, but remember that you'll be totally secluded.

The other cherry is that you're only 20 minutes away from beautiful Playa del Carmen.

This heavenly haven is rated as one of the Top 10 Beaches in Mexico by TripAdvisor®. Love this.

Be like Gena Davis and try your hand at archery, or be a human sling-shot with Euro-bungee.

You can take a cocktail class (channel Tom Cruise in "Cocktail"), or shake a leg in dance classes.

You can upgrade to Preferred Club which means better rooms, private swimming pool, and much more.

For a break from beachy stuff, you can hang out and be awed by Mayan ruins nearby.

Break out your inner fish with deep-sea fishing, water polo, Hobie cats, and kayaking.
