....Buildings 6 and 7 are also new with beautiful rooms. They are however at one end of the resort ( #6 is closer) About a 2 or 3 minute walk to the main buffet. If you choose one of these buildings you may want to request a ground floor room so as not to have to worry about stairs. These buildings are 3 stories high. ...
If I book a superior room, aren't those in 6 and 7 (the stairs dont bother me).
MY dilemma. Sept - 6-7 nights. Go with a KNOWN QUANTITY like IBerostar Lindo where I can get my a la carte reservations by email in advance of my visit, where they know me, or TRY ABR - I know the differences (no fridge in room, smaller pool, less a la carte restos, not so great reservation system for the a la cartes, and a few other things.
The idea of WALKING INTO Akumal is very appealing. The idea of someplace different is appealing. I like the pictures I've seen.
It is also about $500 less than Lindo for the time I want. My travel agent is concerned that I will lock myself into a place for 7 days...and if I dont like it, I am stuck.....I know it IS different. And there MAY be things I dont like (there's always SOMETHING at SOME hotel).
Except for a few minor negative comments on ABR, most comments are generally positive about ABR - even more some than some other hotels.
WHAT'S YOUR OPINION? I really have to decide within the next couple of weeks or I could lose the Lindo or even ABR?
Thanks for the help
