Me and my husband stayed here for a week at the beginning of March, after a tour round the Yucatan area. We had upgraded to the golden rooms and when we arrived we were allocated a room in the 59 block, I requested an ocean front room but was told we had a really good sea view and if not happy to return the next day. The room was very large, four poster bed and sitting area, and yes a sea view but not overlooking the beach. When we slept in the bed that night we realised it had a dip in the middle, we ended up rolling into the centre of it on numerous occasions throughout the night. We went to see Ricardo, in the golden reception area, who then arranged for us to be moved the next day, to block 66, it's right on the beach and had a fantastic view, so thank you Ricardo.
Not much more can be said after all the other excellent reviews, but one thing we did notice is that not many people walk around the complex, we think this is a big mistake (if your able to obviously), there is so much wildlife and birds to see that are missed if travelling on the carts.
The complex is huge, but we were so happy that we booked the Akumal section as it was a lot quieter than the other beach front hotel, Tulum.
If we every returned to Mexico, as there are so many places we still haven't been to, we would certainly return here and definitely recommend GBP Akumal to anyone thinking of staying there.
