We stayed in the Tulum section of the resort, but spent a lot of our time in the Akumal section. I preferred the beach and pools at Akumal, while my DH preferred the Tulum waves. We ate lunch here on most days, and ate at the Frutos del Mar..food and staff were great. (DH thought the portions were too small)lol. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or stay in this part of the resort myself.
