We returned from the Akumal last Sunday. As you can see we have been there 10 times over the years. Yes we have tried others, but still come back the the Akumal. We have always stayed in The Club Gold Section and a very special thank you to Guillermo Carrasco @ Club Golden for getting us into block 66 it was great to see you again this year hopefully you will still be in that position next year, your personality is awesome for customer service. Thank you, Vanessa in public relations for booking our restaurants before arriving again this year. Louis @ the beach hut bar and the 24 hour bar you always make us smile and to see you again this year was great, keep up the good work my friend. To our housekeeping staff many many thanks, for a great job and the towel art, we realize it is the most thankless job to a lot of people, however, if our room was not clean, we would be worried about the rest of the resort. Which we are not.
The resort is quite large, but the transportation system is easy to get to know. We tended to stay on the beach in front of our block of rooms, as it was a little quieter than further down towards Tulum section. There is lots of places to eat within the complex, if someone can not find anything they are just to picky in our opinion. Please try to remember that the buffets feed hundreds of people per day, all with different tastes, we think that the resort does a amazing job with this.
We are very happy that we decided to return to the Akumal this year, as we had a massive emergency medical issue on Mar 6, in turn from the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank Dr. Cynthia Paloma Garcia, and her paramedics Mr. Abraham Zimon Sanchez and Mr. Jose Cardenas Guevara for saving my husbands life. It sure helps when you know the resort inside out like we do and the fast thinking of the resort staff (the lady who answered my call from the room that night) it only took the Dr. and ambulance 5 min to get from the Hacienda to our room, and let me tell you it is a maze of road ways through out the complex.
Will we return next year? You bet, the value, service, and customer service within this resort keeps us coming back year after year. GREAT JOB EVERY ONE
