GBP Akumal.....quite a few questions

Hi All,

Arriving at GBP Akumal on 23rd of December for 10 days. First time in Mexico for us (myself, husband and 12 yr old son). Have found a wealth of info on here that has been very helpful but if anyone can clarify any of the following that would be great!

Does anyone know what we can expect on Christmas Day/New Year? I have done a search and there's a mix of answers. Some say Christmas dinner is on Christmas eve and others Christmas day, anyone know which day or is it both? Also, is New Year Gala dinner included or is this an extra to be paid for? Are there fireworks on new years eve?

We booked with Thomson's and on their website it says that you must eat your hotel's buffet which completely contradicts what I read on here with regards to being able to eat at all 3?

Last but not least (for now anyway!), we are booked for 10 days in Golden section. How many a la carte's will we be entitled to?

Getting very excited now and starting to go into planning mode so any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

XMAS Eve is usually the special dinner although there will likely be lots of turkey xmas day

Hacienda will have the big New Years party with fireworks

You can use all the buffets/restaurants except for the Sian Kaan section

# of alacartes: Minimum 4, ask for 5 as you are there for a few more days

Hope this helps
