    Wonderful trip!

    We are UVC members and have enjoyed our visits to the Secrets hotels. This is by far my favorite experience. The staff was very friendly and service oriented. The entertainment was very good, and the entertainment team was amazing. Shout out to Jordan, Little J, Jessica and The Ferminator for making our trip memorable. We will definitely be back! Our best, Christy and Hip Hip George Vasiliou

    A dream

    We had the best time! We never left the resort. The breakfast every morning was amazing and we took advantage of the beautiful beach and the awesome snorkeling off shore everyday! that’s where we spent the majority of our time! We didn’t get to see any turtles but we did see some cool fish. We went and watched shows every night after eating dinner at a new place every night. The food was amazing and the staff was even better! They definitely made us feel special. Also they were awesome at incorporating the safety steps for covid. Actually all of Mexico did. We felt safer there than at the airports here in the US lol. Our room was amazing. Our view was amazing. We loved every single part of it and I hope we can go back soon!

    Engagement Peoposal

    With no hesitation the best hotel I have stayed in my entire life. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the staff. Everything in the hotel is special, the common areas with all the trees, the ponds, the flowers, the natural atmosphere that is created make this hotel the perfect place for relaxation and leisure. Nonetheless I believe the food and outstanding service is what makes Secrets Akumal my favorite hotel. I want to specially thanks to Salvador Macias, our concierge who is the most professional, friendly, and dedicated person in the hotel (I highly recommend him). He went above and beyond to help me with my engagement proposal, all the arrangements with the photographer, the romantic dinner at the beach, and other surprises he prepared specially for us. The spa is wonderful, all the decorations and setups are beautiful, the relaxation massages were breathtaking, and the service is amazing as in the rest of the hotel. Will definitely come back and recommend enthusiastically.

    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.
