    A wonderful vacation at an amazing resort.

    My husband I just returned from a 10 night stay at Secrets Akumal. Our son and daughter in law went to Secrets Maroma last year and convinced us that we needed to try a Secrets when we decided to get away this year. We have stayed at several other all inclusives including Riu’s, Barcelo Palace, Club Med and Sandals but the Secrets is definitely our new favourite. It is a beautiful resort with lush, tropical landscaping, a gorgeous beach with plenty of shade, outstanding service at the beach, the pools and at the restaurants. The staff seem genuine in their eagerness to be helpful and bend over backwards to please you. There are several specialty restaurants and we were able to try them all. The choices and quality of food was very good. Almost every day there was a themed nightly BBQ a with entertainment. We loved all the little extra’s, such as an ice cream cart coming daily, and cold face cloths and sunglasses cleaning service. We didn’t opt for the Preferred Club service, to us the extras didn’t seem to be worth the considerable extra cost so I can’t comment on those amenities. We only had a few criticisms/ suggestions. Our room was lovely, always kept spotlessly clean and was very comfortable. However we were not fans of the “open” bathroom arrangement. Basically there’s a clear view of the glass toilet room from the bedroom. That could be eliminated by changing the sheer curtain around the tub with a solid curtain or louvers. There was plenty of drink choices and the drinks were good. However the wine selection was very limited. Unless you’re willing to buy a bottle of wine for 70.00 plus, you were limited to 2 house whites and 2 house reds. I was expecting more choice considering the premium you pay with a Secrets resort. All in all it is a beautiful resort , we had a wonderful time and we would highly recommend this property.

    Concierge's at this resort are AMAZING!

    Antonio and Fernando are just THE BEST! Antonio (pool concierge) saw us daily to keep us up to date with daily activities, entertainment, and made sure we were having a great time. The start of our trip was a fiasco. We flew in from Vancouver on March 27. Nexus Tours basically abandoned us at the airport for an addition 3 hrs. We were finally put on a big bus after 2.5 hours, then asked to get off, and put on a van. Then waited for another 30 mins for 2 more passengers who flew in on a flight from Victoria. I also think our transfer driver was auditioning for a formula one race! We were terrified we wouldn't even make it to the resort! The next morning, we tried contacting Nexus Tours via 3 emails, and an attempt at calling customer service. We explained the situation to Antonio, and he brought in Fernando. Fernando helped us with Nexus Tours to confirm our return transfer to Cancun Airport (this took until day before we left!) But Fernando was persistent and such a patient man. He explained this had happened to other guests in the last couple of months so he is not sure what is going on with Nexus Tours? But he was finally successful in getting to the right person at Nexus and he kept us informed each day. I can't say enough about both Antonio and Fernando. We felt taken care of at this resort and would highly recommend this to anyone looking for amazing people, service, beaches, activities and food! When they say to you "welcome home", they really mean it!

    See you again soon!

    Secrets Akumal has it all! Amazing beach with snorkelling steps away from the lively activity pool, casual and fine dining experiences. The grounds are lush jungle gardens with lots of shade throughout. Preferred is the way to go: building location, club lounge drinks and snacks and breakfast at Seaside was much better than buffet. We had the best service at the PC lounge, greeted by name each visit by Johanna, she made our visits there most enjoyable. Our pool days were so fun yet relaxing, Antonio was always looking out for every need, we enjoyed his daily check in and conversations. See you again our friends at SA!

    Above and beyond customer service!

    This resort is stunning. We enjoyed a fun and relaxing week here and I cannot say enough about the amazing customer service provided by all the staff. Never have I felt so pampered and cared for. A special mention of Daniel the Pool Concierge Supervisor who greeted us by name each day, ensured we had enough clean towels, shade, information about the daily activities and evening entertainment. I looked forward to seeing his beautiful smile each morning and you could see how much he took pride in ensuring that everyone there had a wonderful time. Also I want to mention Ismael and Hector our two main pool waiters in our section who ensured we had everything we needed. There is such an amazing array of entertainment here both day and night that you could choose to relax and unwind or be busy every minute of the day. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone!
