Bahia Principe Tulum or Bahia Principe Akumal

Ok...which is better? I know they're connected and you can use both...but which one is better as far as rooms and pools go? Trying to pick a spot quickly. Reading some nightmares about beaches washing away...is it anywhere near this area??

No beaches washing away at any place at this resort. Both are wonderful - beach is a little better in the Tulum side, but Akumal side is newer and amenities and rooms are a little better on the Akumal side.

Can't beat either. If you wear the Tulum bracelet you can use everything on the Akumal side except the main buffet and the gourmet restaurant, and exactly the same on the Akumal side. The only things that aren't shared are the main buffet and each side's gourmet restaurant. We stayed on the Akumal side but 2 of the 3 a-la carte restaurants we tried were on the Tulum side.
