So much to do and so much to see! We stayed here in April 2012 for a week. The rooms were super big, super clean and just wonderful! We went with a group and they were kind enough to put us all in the same building. The staff was so pleasant they even got us our own tram for our... More

We have just returned from two weeks at this resort and cannot wait to go back. Yes the weather was hot and humid but you are in Mexico and the hotel are not responsible for the weather. The ceiling fan in the room worked alongside the air con and I can honestly say it did not disturb our sleep. The... More

Don't get me wrong , we had a good holiday but a few little things could make it better. There needs to be more staff on the bars to prevent queues, when some of the bars close at 22:30 and the rest at 23:00 it's a bit manic trying to get a last drink, when there is only one person... More

I'll not bother confirming all the facts about this resort (transport/WiFi/wildlife etc), as they are already covered in previous posts. I am guilty of arming myself with far too much information from this site and others, so I am my own worst enemy. I am pleased to say however, that all my expectations were met and some. We had a...

We went to this resort for two weeks in the end of June/beginning of July of 2014, and we loved our experience. We enjoyed the many activities and services for our 4 kids. They went to the kids club most days for about an hour or two, and they really enjoyed it. Thanks to the friendly and professional staff!

Stayed at the Gold section at Akumal. I believe its only bookable by a travel agent. Let me say that if you want an all inclusive, don't have to think about anything except when to start eating and drinking this is the place. Never stayed at a resort before and not really my type of vacation this place is amazing,... More

I have been on many holidays but this far exceeded any of them. The resort is fantastic, the staff are fantastic. A special mention to miguel in the cozumel restaurant, he was professional yet delightful. To summarise, I would definitely go back to this resort. Absolutely wonderful.

Absolutely wonderful resort, it was massive but with different areas. It took us ages to explore all of the facilities. Staff went out of their way to be helpful. Nothing more to add other than if staying in Mexico you must stay here.

Great location and resort for a family vacation. As a returning guest, it was communicated to us that we would receive spécial attention upon arrival, but nothing received. We communicated 2 safety issues to VIP MGMT but on action/follow-up taken on théier part.
