Amazing!

This was our second trip back and I'm sure there will be many more. The service is second to none. This beach in my opinion is the best in Riviera Maya. Crystal clear water and tons of marine life makes for excellent snorkeling. The nightly shows are fantastic. The food and drinks are wonderful. I think the staff here really make this resort shine. Definitely my favorite adults only resort in Riviera Maya!

Can’t say enough wonderful things!!

This was a first time ever booking with cheap Caribbean and we booked the deal of fortune Rivera maya . We were placed at Secrets Akumal . The value for what we got was beyond our wildest dreams. Having been at other all inclusive in the past but nothing anywhere’s as awesome as this resort ! Service is great, resort is breathtaking and the food is outstanding! We loved the fact you could go to any restaurant without a reservation or planes ahead of time. This allows you to be completely relaxed not having to be anywhere at any certain time. The Amstar service to and from the airport made the trip even better. Amstar is so organized it takes a lot of thought out of your trip, the have all organized for you. The drivers and support staff are so friendly and helpful. This may be our first trip booked with cheap Caribbean and our first stay at a Secrets resort but it certainly won’t be our last. Can’t wait to bring family and friends next time to share our top notch experience!!!!

Best resort thus far!!

I cannot day enough about the spectacular service, amnenities, beach, pools, cleanliness, food and accommodations! We booked the preferred customer jr suite ocean view and it was spectacular. I got engaged here and it could not have been at a better resort. The drinks and food service was top notch, the best. Honestly The PC benefits were amazing however we were only there for 4 nights so it was hard to take full asvatange of the PC lounge and still enjoy the rest of the resort. I could have done without the pc but it was still great to have. The resort was huge and lots of walking. But it was nice in between meals because we did eat! We weren’t able to enjoy the portifino restaurant. Not enough nights. Each and every restaurant men had to wear pants and sleeve shirt. Food was amazing. I highly recommend this resort and would definitely come back!

Beautiful resort-- lessons learned

The good: ~The beach is amazing. Being able to go snorkel right off the beach and seeing turtles, fish and stingrays was amazing. ~The food. Oh goodness--the food. Wonderful! ~The service is top notch. The waiters, cleaners, entertainment team and bartenders-- EVERYONE is nice and helpful. ~The room was really beautiful-- very large, a HUGE tub, lots of towels. ~This is the resort to go to for a quiet and relaxing getaway. Some of the pools only had a few people at it. ~The little lizards... just cute. The meh: ~The spa pools were COLD. I am sure they were supposed to be "therapeutic", but we couldn't even put a foot in it. The hot tub was more of a lukewarm tub. ~The massage was great... but very pricey. Just know that you are going to spend $$ in the spa if that is your thing. ~The swim-out pool was cold, too. We didn't even use it. Don't waste your money there... use it for an ocean view room. ~We upgraded to the "preferred club" level. Total waste of money. Other than a special place to check in, there was no benefit. Or at least it wasn't explained to us very well. Don't waste your money there. ~They tried to get us to go to a 90 minute breakfast to learn more about the Secrets franchise. We skipped. I would prefer to never get talked to about these kinds of things-- just point me to the beach. But the woman was very understanding when we said no thank you. The Ugly: ~If you select this resort (and I recommend that you do!!!), do yourself a favor and splurge for the private transport. It took us THREE HOURS from landing at the airport to getting to the hotel. GET THE PRIVATE TRANSPORT. Bottom line-- pick this resort! Don't upgrade to the club level (or at least educate yourself before you go), use it to get an ocean view room. Take a snorkel and get the private transport. This was an amazing vacation and we will definitely pick Secrets Akumal again :)

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

As of June 2018 you can bring your furry friend along!

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.

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.
