Grounds: The grounds are kept very clean and not a piece of litter in sight. Everything is absolutely beautiful. You don't have to set up anything to take a picture - everything is just an absolute eye candy. Grounds staff/gardeners etc. work extremely hard to make sure the hotel remains in a next to perfect state. Pools: Again, very clean.... More

Just got back from akumal resort this morning . Overall a fantastic hotel with amazing staff. Only a couple of minor problems over the two weeks. When we arrived at cancun airport we were greeted by lots of chaos as a couple flights landed at the same time so immigration was really slow. The bags took about 45 mins to... More

We spent our two week honeymoon here, it was fantastic. We really couldn't fault the hotel or it`s staff. The hotel was very clean,food was very good with a wide variety to choose from. Entertainment good, Tony & all the rest of the entertainment staff were great. All in all a fantastic holiday, would love to go back.

My partner and I just came back from this hotel yesterday. The resort is HUGE, most cases you will need to wait for a shuttle to take you around unless you don't mind long walks. The hotel is very clean, not one piece of dust was found and we saw cleaning throughout the day in the grounds as well as... More

We stayed for the last 2 weeks in June and although the hotel and resort was good, the position was very disappointing. This was our 3rd stay in Mexico (staying previously at Riu Playacar and the Barcelo Maya) and this hotel was the furthest from the airport (50 - 60 mins) and from the nearest town(Playa del Carmen 40 mins)....

We enjoyed staying here. Nice beach, good food, clean surroundings and hardworking people. But this front office jerk pissed us off on the last day when we were checking out. His name was Raul. Very unfriendly and unprofessional person. I don't want to go into details. I can't imagine how a person like this works at the front desk. We... More

Please excuse the spelling, just a bad speller,need spell check. Okay first with Air Transat. This had to be without a doubt the absolute worst flight I have been on, ever.
