!!!!! Help - Beaches at Bahia Principe Tulum/Akumal ????

We are going to book hotel for next June. Does anyone have any information on the beaches here. Are they still in tact and beautiful or are they experiencing erosion as well. Any pictures?

The beaches are intact, Hurricane Dean took some sand from the Akumal side and deposited it on the Tulum side. The sand has since been replaced. None of the errosion that has taken place in Cancun. Lots of pictures on the Hotel sites under Candid Traveler Photos. I have been there this last September and November, it is as beautiful as ever. Still some rocks (dead coral) on the beach, but that has always been there, the price you pay for awesome snorkeling.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info, it really does help with the visual. It is our first time there, any ideas on best building or area to stay in?

Hubby and I like the Tulum side, looking forward to it even more now that skier says that there is more sand. Club Diamond section for us!!

I am hearing about the club diamond section, but what is this and what do you get for it.

Beaches are fine but you will need your water shoes.
