    Secrets Akumal

    The resort is amazing and beautiful. The rooms were above and beyond what you'd expect. We had a suite with a swim-out pool. So nice!! The spa was one of the nicest I've ever been too as well. We went a little crazy and did some VIP dining. Alberto put us in the wine room, which was one of the best dining experiences I'd ever had in my life.

    Amazing Getaway

    We went on a last minute trip here a few weeks ago. It was amazing! The resort is very clean and taking all precautions for COVID. The landscaping is unlike any resort I have seen. The employees were amazing and always made sure we were taken care of. Jonathan, the pool supervisor, took great care of us. He always made sure we had everything we needed and had a great attitude! Mario made us so great drinks at the swim up bar. We enjoyed the hibachi dinner at Himitsu along with the Sushi and Fried Ice Cream! We were so glad we went on this trip as we had 2 vacations cancel previously this year. We love the Secrets brand and will continue to go to their resorts!

    Great Resort

    From the time we arrived my wife and my experience was amazing. Our concierge Taila (hope I spelled it right) was very helpful with reservations throughout the resort and the golf course nearby! Pool waiter Hector is top notch and always made sure we hade a cold drink in our hands!! The entertainment staff/pool team is the best there is hands down, Jordan, Fermine-Ferminator, Rene, and the ladies are all awesome and the friendliest people you will ever encounter. Thanks for an amazing trip!!

    Relaxation During a Pandemic

    We couldn't wait to arrive! We'd had 2 of our vacations already cancelled, and had our fingers crossed this one would survive. It did and it was the absolute best!! This resort is the best, lots of foliage- like your in the jungle far away from home. We had a PC ocean front swim out suite. Great location in building 1, so it was pretty close to everything. Our only complaint would be the foliage blocks the entire ocean front view, but none the less super nice. I can't say enough about the employees here-- They remember your name, what you drink...Everything. In the evening after dinner every night at the lobby bar they would have live music or other entertainment. We'd go to dinner early then hang out there til it closed. Daniella was our waitress and before we could tell her our order, she'd tel us-lol, after one night with her she remembered everything. so nice, she was great. Also Eric at the lobby bar during the day. Our concierge at building 1 was fabulous!! Alexa was the absolute best, she decorated our room for my birthday, sent champagne with chocolate covered strawberries on one day and on another day it was champagne and a cheese and fruit board--everyday it was a new surprise. Benjamin at Bordeaux was great as well--he got me with dessert, the whole staff came around our table and sang Happy Birthday twice-lol. The resort is beautiful but the employees make it a very special place. Other things to do....We snorkeled right off of the beach and saw all kinds of colorful fish and lots of turtles. Even to just go and lay out on the beach is so peaceful. On to the cleanliness of this resort, it's great! They test your temp, offer hand sanitizer at all or most of the restaurants and at check in. They are way ahead of the game compared to the states. We never ever had a worry abt Covid-19, it was super nice to actually not think about it for a few days. My husband works in the ER and is waist deep in it at home, and he was very impressed with all they do to keep you safe. In ending, I hope I didn't forget anyone and we'll definitely be back. We are actually already looking at returning in February. Thank You Thank You Thank You for a fabulous get away in the middle of all of the craziness going on in the world right now! We miss Y'all already!!
