We were supposed to go elsewhere but it did not work out. I am really glad we got to go here. It is a beautiful resort. Everything was perfect! The staff was amazing! The food was amazing. The pool was so much fun. The beach was gorgeous! I can't say enough great things about the resort or the staff! We had a beautiful room with the more glorious view!! I truly did not want to come home!

Beautiful newer resort. The property was absolutely beautiful between the architecture and all the lush plants on the property. Pools were clean and beautiful as well. We had a King Suite with the swim out patio which was another nice added feature. The staff was super friendly and definitely masked up for COVID. They definitely kept everything clean for COVID ie room, chairs, tables, and bars. This made us feel very safe on our vacation. The food was excellent! The breakfast buffet had plenty of options for everyone. The Italian restaurant was delicious as well as the French restaurant (our favorite). They made homemade pizzas on Thursday out by the pool which were also great, just wish they made them every day! The beach was pristine with nice soft sand. The water a beautiful turquoise blue color. Snorkeling was great with lots of sea grass, coral reefs, colorful fish, sea turtles, and manta rays! You can check out snorkel gear, paddle boards, and kayaks on the beach. We had a great vacation/honeymoon at this resort would definitely return here again and again!

My wife and I just returned from our honeymoon in Mexico and we stayed at Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya. We had intended to go to Maui and stay at the Rtiz-Carlton, but the they kept extending the 14-day COVID-19 quarantine, so we switched to Secrets. I had thought that the Ritz was going to be tough to match; however, upon walking into the lobby at Secrets, I forgot all about the Ritz! They upgraded us to a swim-up room since it was our honeymoon and we got the preferred club (totally worth it!). All it took to solidify that this was going to be a vacation in paradise was walking through the lobby, getting some margaritas at the lobby bar and preferred club lounge, and then seeing our incredible room. Everything else that we experienced at the resort only continued to reinforce our already magical experience. Jose, who worked at the Seaside Cafe (where they normally have a buffet) by the pool, was an excellent server and took great care of us. Mo and Fernando were great bartenders at the pool. Ferminator was the perfect fit for doing the fun activities, and was a source of entertainment all by himself. Lastly, our concierge, Talia, was incredible and took amazing care of us. Anything we needed, she'd make it all happen. Highlights: - Swim-up room - Spa experience - French restaurant (best meal we've ever had) - Romantic dining experience on the beach My wife and I have travelled to over 50 countries, including 48 states, most islands in the Caribbean, most of Europe, Dubai, Bali, Phuket, The Philippines, Hawaii, and Japan. Secrets made this vacation top all of them. Mexico alone doesn't beat out many of those locations, but Secrets elevated it to a level that put it far above more exotic destinations.

We are currently staying at Secrets Akumal. The staff here has been great, what we are unhappy with is the the structure above them. When we tried to go get a bucket of ice for our room we were told all the ice machines were down for maintenance, so we ordered some from room service. We have waited on 2 different occasions for a bucket of ice for well over an hour.  When we arrived, we waited in the PC lounge again for over an hour. They told us 3 times they they were just waiting on our luggage before they would take us to our room, I could have carried my luggage to the room if that was the hold up. They keep offering us food and drink, which very little food was left at that time of the day, but after a long day of traveling at 4 PM (we arrived around 3-3:30) we just wanted to be in our room to rest and freshing up. We finally got settled in and went to find something to eat. Since it was after 5 all the "daytime" eating options had closed. They advised us to order room service, Because the evening eating places didn't open untill 6. We didn't want to come to a beach resort, to go set in our room and wait for room service, But we did. After ordering, it took well over an hour. so there we were sitting in our room at a BEACH resort. Today we were at the Halftime Sports Bar to watch the nfl games. Games kicked off at noon but the bar didn't open till noon and it took him about 30 minutes to get everything set up. We were told that due to the downsizing of the staff they were preparing food at the restaurants and bringing it over. That food took an hour and 1½ to arrive.   We have talked to others who are guest here and they also experienced the same slow service, which we have been told they are understaffed and overbooked here at this resort. The staff here is doing thier best to take care of everyone, but they can only do what the limited number of them can do to take care of so many people. We have spent well over $5000 on this vacation to not have to wait and our for food or have to go to our room and wait for our food. We had planned to spend money in the spa and pictures and other things here at the resort, even look to taking another vacation at another Secrets resort or another resort in the AMresort family, but now we are reconsidering that decision.   The wait staff and servers are working thier tails off, they just need more help to be able to provide the service we paid for. As a business owner, we always make sure our employees and staff have the necessary resources to do thier job,. We do not feel the corporate at AM resorts has not done the same John and Annecye Beasley

We just finished a very much appreciated and needed vacation for a week at Secrets Akumal. From the moment we arrived we were impressed with the warmth and diligence of each and every staff member. The COVID-19 protocol in place is second to none. We were in the prefered club in an Oceanview room 4408. Truely a spectacular room. Our concierge Talia was the most attentive and helpful that we have ever had. There were many others Restaurant Hostesses Consuela and Dominica waiters Aaron in Portifino and Lazcano on the beach. A special shout out to the team in the Coco Cafe especially Felipe they always went the extra mile with true enthusiasm. There is not doubt that COVID-19 has influenced staffing and areas of service but with the slightest bit of understanding this is the best place to be. Food is always subject to the diner. We dined in every venue. Each one delivered high quality food. Service was at time elongated which appeared to be due to staffing not the actual staff that were working because each one there never quit hustling as hard as they could. They were all eager to satisfy and fill every need. The very best was a Chefs dinner in Portifino that was arranged by our Concierge Talia. I cannot remember the Chefs or waiters name but Dominica was the Hostess and all together that delivered the most beautiful and delicious dinner. We have been here before and this time was as good if not better than ever. The grounds survived the storms with absolutely minimal damage it is so lush and tropical that is truely paradise. Thanks to everyone for the great week they delivered. Do not hesitate to travel here. We will be back again.
