Resort for Lovers (VERY detailed for 1st timers!)

This will be a thorough review… as I do not write many reviews, I felt this one is very necessary for first time travelers to Mexico. I’ve broken down my experience in sections, hopefully covering all aspects  Please note all dollar amounts I am listing are USD, the resort pricing lists and shops are all in USD, but you have the option to convert to pesos. The resort would prefer you pay in USD, stating their conversion rate is lower than outside of the resort, so I would suggest getting small USD bills for tipping. We stayed from May 24-28th; the weather was high 80s low 90s, but the beaches contained a lot of algae and seaweed for the season which stripped the clean white sand beach feel away. Booking (w/ CheapCaribbean) CheapCaribbean was easy and helpful to use, we do not feel deceived by anything they advertised on the main page for this resort. The excursions are all extra cost, so please take the initial cost lightly, as you may want to purchase other incentives and end up paying a lot more. Our booking; 2x people with airfare, preferred club junior swim out suite, three excursions and round trip transportation, costs around $5000 at the time we booked. I chose the option to split the payment in two portions to make it easier financially, you can also split costs between multiple credit/debit cards. Travel to and from airport: Preferred club is honestly the way to go! We purchased the shared round trip transfer, which allowed others staying in various resorts to ride with us so we made two stops before our destination. Secrets Akumal is a little over an hour away from the airport, and check in was at 3pm. However, preferred club allowed us to sit in a separate lobby at Secrets and eat and drink as we please. We also had assistance to our room in a golf cart (I think this is standard service), so we didn’t have to move a muscle and relaxation began as soon as we arrived. What we did NOT like was the constant hassling of the non-Amstar sales reps (they wear cream colored shirts) offering us “gifts” and “special deals” to purchase, which honestly takes away from the time that you paid for (sitting in their breakfast briefs) and nothing is free! Think of people trying to sell you a World Trip Dream Ventures membership! Of course, they were nice, but they laid it on thick and hardly took “no, thank you” for an answer (we were able to decline). Amstar reps and tour guides do a great job at letting you know the real deal, and telling you they are unaffiliated and you could purchase the “gifts” at your own risk. All Inclusive Restaurants: This experience with “all inclusive” has set the bar. The restaurants (there are about seven), were beautiful, professional and did not give the “all-inclusive buffet” feeling that I had encountered at past resorts. There is no fine print when they say that EVERYTHING was included (except exclusive alcohol, such as Don Julio 1942)! Preferred club members receive $40 in wine coupons (increments of $10 each), that you can apply to bottles (bottles range anywhere from $35 and up, and you can only use one coupon per bottle). I would recommend to tip the waiters/waitresses, but they do not hassle you or make you feel uncomfortable if you do not. Secrets Akumal Resort (Pros and Cons) Pros: - EVERYONE and I mean everyone was kind and professional! I cannot stress how important that is to feel welcomed in a new country. We are an interracial couple, for starters, and do not speak Spanish, we had ZERO qualms with feeling respected! You can be yourself here  - Adults only was great! There are Secrets resorts that have family friendly and elderly options, but Akumal is strictly for 18+. I rarely saw anyone under 25 years old. - Strict dress code in certain restaurants after 5pm, gives the fancier restaurants more flare! - Beautiful beaches and pools were not as crowded. - Room service is exceptional, I would suggest they improve their shower water temperature though (not as hot)! Also, if you choose room service for breakfast and have an excursion and pick up is at 8-9am, order around 630am since everything is made fresh it will take a while. - There is little to no language barrier with the staff, most speak English fluently. Cons: - The spa is pretty pricey, compared to my previous experiences. Of course, the atmosphere and professionalism was top notch! Secrets/CheapCaribbean offers preferred club members a mere $100 off in spa service coupons (increments of $40, $40 and $20), but you can only use one coupon per visit. We were only able to book one service (80 min massage for about $235, and use one $40 coupon), based on all of the excursions we had booked, the coupons cannot be combined and went to waste. I would suggest you schedule your service at least 24-48hrs in advance and do so in person, as they weren’t very punctual in calling me back when I set the appointment up with room service. - The free alcohol selection was pretty lackluster… I am not fully calling this a con, because it is free and definitely does its job! Just wish there was a better selection, everything seemed bottom shelf (the waiters are very pour happy and can make great cocktails though). - The romantic dinner, advertised with a $60 coupon, is an upwards of $400+. Yes, it’s seemingly private and on the beach (there are multiple tables that are separated by canopies), but I feel it’s a little pricey for what is offered and the $60 coupon is a pretty stumpy deal. Take this con with a grain of salt, because I have not explored the menu... just saw the set up and the price. I tried to track down lobster our entire stay and couldn’t find any… so maybe it’s for the romantic dinner? - Laundry service, again, pretty pricey, we washed about eight items of clothing (bathing suits, shorts, jeans), did not ask for ironing or dry cleaning and that ended up costing around $80! Excursions: Note: I have only experienced Tulum/Yalku Plus, ATVs and Zip Lines DBL and Coba Mayan Encounter. I will write a full review for each separately. All in all, I HIGHLY recommend to anyone visiting Mexico for the first time! Your experience would be exciting and romantic altogether!

Secrets Akumal Tropical Paradise

Just got back from a quick 6-day vacation at Secrets Akumal and I must say this is one of our favorite resorts for beauty. Let me start by saying we are a Secrets family having visited Huatulco, Capri, Maroma, Playa Mujeres, Los Cabos, Silversands and now Akumal. This is the most Eco-tropical resort of them all. There are spots around the resort that you would think you are in the jungle, and if it was not for the signs around the resort, you can get lost. Let me start by saying, we always use USA Transfer to shuttle us so we miss the crowds, and the cost is usually cheaper than shared rides. The trip to the resort is an hour and a half from the Airport, but the drivers had beer on board so it was a fast ride. The Resort is new with a beautiful tropical feel throughout and is situated on turtle bay and you guested it, the main theme is turtles, and stingrays. We stayed in building 9b on the second floor in the very back of the complex. The buildings are numbered from number 1 in the front near the ocean to nine in the back. The room is modern and a good size, with a Jacuzzi tub that can fit two people. People have complained about mosquitoes but we had no problem with them at all and were never bit but I did see mosquito lights on the first floor rooms. Our check-in went smooth in a beautiful area at the top of the resort with a lot of photo opts. The beach: Is beautiful with padded chaise lounges, and like every resort the towel game is played every day. However, unlike the other resorts if a lounge is left unattended they clean it out (thank you Vincent). Usually if you get to the beach before 9:00, you will be fine. People complain about seaweed but luckily there was very little during our visit. The water at this time of the year was warm and many people were in the ocean but not all were Secrets customers. The ocean sand was good as I was able to go in up to my chest before it turned to seaweed. The beach area is really a bay in which many Turtles, Sting Rays and Fish can be seen if you snorkel. The problem with that is that this area caters to turtle viewing day-trips and the beaches are public, so many people come and sit on the beach near the water, but there are guards along the beach to keep non-resort people off the resort area. Therefore, the resort is not adults only at the beach area and there is nothing the resort can do. The beach servers were wonderful and I cannot remember all their names but thank you all, “Mamo special Drink.” The restaurants: Well as always, they were fantastic, but at each resort, we found out that the restaurants were different. At this resort, we did not care for the Portofino and Bordeaux restaurants as they had a very limited menu and the service was slow. However, we loved the Mexican, Seaside Grill, and the Hitmitsu for diner. I must add the earlier you get to the restaurants (6:00-7:00) for diner the easier it is to be seated and the quicker, you are served. Service slows down if the restaurants are full. We tried the Oceana for lunch with the same results as the first two restaurants, so for lunch we just ordered from the beach menu, which we really enjoyed. One of the biggest attractions to other Secrets resorts is the wait staff as they work so hard to make everything special for everyone however, Akumal fell short on service compared to Capri or Silversands and I was not the only one who was aware of this short fall. We tip a lot and I feel that was the only way we received better service (Sorry Akumal). One other thing compared to the other Resorts was that many of the employees had a hard time with English and just spoke Spanish, but I feel this is a learning thing and it did not affect our vacation, as my wife and I can get by with Spanish. Overall Akumal is a beautiful Resort and “Yes” I will definitely be returning to Akumal.

Nice

Room etc: in lovely shape and clean. Ac good and better with fan. There is a cloth curtain separating the jacuzzi from the bath and main room. Not a problem for friend room sharing. There is a glass (not clear) door to toilet. Hated the bug spray smell on toilet paper. It was worst part of trip so overall very nice trip. It may be a scent they add but when I opened the water toilet door the scent was overwhelming. My son didn’t notice. Nice assortment of mini bar glass coke, Diet Coke, Fanta, sprite, sparking, Coronas, and plastic water bottles. No room for other stuff. Mainly couples here. I saw no solo travelers. The property is easier to get around than the Secrets playa mujeres property. Disappointed that full ocean view is literally two inches of “ocean,” only preferred club see the beach. It was a garden view in actuality so don’t pay extra for ocean view unless you are preferred club I guess. I love the nespresso machine in the room. I bought one as soon as I got back. Lots of foliage and unique animals. Very fun, watch your step for fun lizards on sidewalk. Most animals I’ve seen on about 10 trips to Mexico which was a bonus. Location very close to tulum ruins and for other 1/2 day excursions. Is very hot hot hot there at ruins after a bit. The guide walks fast. Bring your small backpack for water. Other: say no to timeshare right in your room booking comments. It worked. Get your free pendant at the shop when you arrive, no pressure and only souvenir I had time to get for trip. They can check you in and print your boarding passes. Entertainment: several things to do. Get paper list of activities from concierge. Paperless on the Tablet. Tablet doesn’t work off the charger; the battery is shot. Love the turn down service and channel they put on with art like program of elephants. There is a nice Beatles show. I think it is probably best show. We didn’t go to the affair one. There was one rock show with light up costumes that got a little repetitive but cool if you haven’t seen that sort of thing before. No MJ show thank goodness. Mexico buffet night is ok. I didn’t like bbq night others secrets so skipped it. Go to left for single tables not shared. The right ones require wine purchase. No vendors on beach. There are a few shops on property. A couple of nights they had a small market from outside vendors you can walk around if not interested. Food: we never made it to lunch buffet. Breakfast pretty similar each day but good variety. Can order food right on beach. Good waitress & waiter service. I got the top sirloin at the steakhouse. It was awful. Son’s NY looked fine. We tried all but Japanese. Little coffee shop has cute desserts. I never had a chance to get coffee. Some got ice cream there certain times of day. We didn’t order room service this trip. There was a champagne chilling and apples in our room. We loved our bell boy! We got him coming and going. Rose is nice in French restaurant only. Nice bartenders at rendezvous. Beach: not the softest sand but not bad. Don’t need water shoes. Half trip severe sea weed. They worked very hard to clean but the clean up process could dampen your experience. Water varies. Typically murky green to sometimes almost transparent. Heard it gets better further out you go. Free snorkel and vests with 45 minute limit. No flippers allowed. Read sundial in your room! However I still saw some using and a few kids came from other resorts. Lots of people snorkeling. My son took lots of fish photos in deep. It’s roped off and vests required. Watch for sting rays. Clean and no trash-No throw away cups or straws. Day beds are reserved. I was a little offended by waitress assuming we didn’t belong but we just got to beach. Worker helped us find chairs with hut on other side. He asked room number and felt like he didn’t think we belonged there. Going to Left easiest for chairs by beach bar but way further down can be blocked off view sometimes with piled up seaweed they are piling up haul off. Spa: they have showers there. Come early for ignored paperwork. Not enough direction. It’s outside so you won’t have your sunscreen, or shade, and hard to wear sunglasses if you remember them. Worst massage. Biggest disappointment and waste of time. Did no good. I wish I had my money back. Did head shoulder neck massage and she concentrated 90 % arms and hands even after I asked her not to. It was 25 minute only but she forced me to awkwardly flip over then proceeded to pinch my skin between her hands and the table. Awful and too expensive. I can give myself a much better massage. No help to neck or shoulders whatsoever. Plus the guy before hand pushed on my eyes hard. Why??? Transfers Amstar: I wouldn’t do the shared transfer but do private amstar transfer. They packed us in with no room for the hour drive from airport. First round I had back seat which was very hard on my back terribly bumpy unbelievably terrible. Second time they put me next to an empty baby seat next to driver. I couldn’t sit with my son.

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.
