When you think of a hotel that checks all the boxes (outstanding service, comfy rooms, the works) it’s probably one of these winning spots.

The Travelers’ Choice Awards Best of the Best title celebrates the highest level of excellence in travel.

Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya offers a grand escape full of both relaxation and adventure. The hotel features spacious rooms as well as inviting gardens and direct beach access. Wellness lovers will head for the fitness center, steam room, and spa, while adventurers gear up for diving and bicycle tours. Plus, the resort's ideal location for snorkeling adds a bucket-list activity to your vacay. You'll love the poolside buffets, tequila tastings, and a variety of dining options. And, the resort's personalized concierge service will make it your most memorable trip yet.

    My husband and I stayed at Secrets Akumal from December 27th to January 3rd, 2024. This is our second Secrets resort. Besides the weather being a little cool on some days, everything else was perfect. The beach is a beautiful golden sand beach with clear waters. There is some seaweed patches here and there, but nothing too bad. There is a snorkeling tour right next door where hundreds of people come everyday to swim with giant turtles hence why it’s called Playa Tortugas. The tour companies can only swim in certain dedicated sections, making the Secrets Akumal beach is less crowded than near tour companies. The beach is public, so do expect to see a lot of tourists and locals, especially on weekends. Security is walking along Secret’s property to ensure no visitors or guests come onto the beach chairs. Also beach chairs were in abundance! Sunrise on the beach is a must. It rises perfectly along the beach and makes for a memorable experience with pelicans flying overhead. The food was exquisite. Multiple restaurants to choose from, Mexican, Italian, French, Seafood, Grill and Asian. The Italian and Grill were the best. Reservations were easily made, and late evenings around 830pm, you could get in without a reservation easily. The buffet was open only breakfast and lunch, it was well air conditioned and never over crowded. The buffet was plentiful with an array of options every day, you couldn’t pick what to eat because there was too much to choose from. Definitely impressed by their variety of foods, drinks, and selection of fresh fruits and vegetables. Everyday there were activities throughout the resort and available on the HYATT app on your smartphone, which is very convenient. From fresh tuna cutting and tasting, to make your own bracelets, to a guacamole cooking lesson, to CrossFit classes on the beach, to cocktail mixing (mixology) classes, there was always something to do that definitely stood out in terms of originality and creativity. The room was large, with lots of storage space. A giant bathtub in the room. A large walk-in shower with good water pressure and two shower heads to choose from. The bathroom had robes, a scale, hair dryer, as well as incense to burn and set the vibe. The bed was comfortable. Lighting was dim, but fits the bohemian vibe. The balcony was large with a table, chairs and a lounger. There was unlimited room service that you could order from the tablet in your room. Service arrives within 30-45 minutes. A secret box allows you to put stuff in and lets staff take it out without distributing you if DND light in your room - pretty cool. The resort was not a complicated layout. Everything is easily accessible and set up with pathways surrounded by greenery and lush tropical plants every where. I was seriously impressed with the landscape and the natural vibe that Secrets Akumal has kept within their grounds. Wildlife is very present and it’s definitely a vibe. Our room was in building 9, which was pretty far from the beach and the center of everything but it was calm and peaceful building and made for a nice walk along the pathways. There was also a calm pool, near building 7, where no loud music or talking is allowed - it’s the Zen area and adds a certain vibe to those seeking to relax. Also, throughout the resort there were BOSE sound system speakers in the ground, playing music setting the vibe all day. The gym was fully equipped, with cardio machines, free weights, weight machines, washrooms to change, televisions, air conditioning and cleaning staff always present. However, my only complaint would be that Secrets signature fragrance, which is intoxicating, should not be in the gym. When working out, we need more clean oxygen, not more chemical fragrances in the air. The same goes for the fragrance on the toilet paper (it does not belong there) and in all public washrooms: please consider toning it down just a little bit, the fragrance smell is overwhelmingly strong especially for sensitive guests (like myself). Also, we were there for New Year’s Eve and I must say that the entertainment staff worked very hard to set up the evening party and went above and beyond to make sure that it was a successful celebration. Fireworks are no longer allowed in Akumal due to the proximity of the turtles nesting grounds and home environment in the sea grass near the ocean’s shore. Finally, Secrets Akumal sets up two art galleries throughout the week, one with cuisine from locals and souvenirs/ art to buy, and one in the middle Plaza with some of the same souvenirs/ art to buy in case you missed out on the first evening. Overall, I would recommend Secrets Akumal and would return without thinking about it. The beach was amazing, the food was great, the room was comfortable and the resort has a natural tropical bohemian vibe. What more could you ask for! PS. We stayed at Secrets the Vine, Cancun for New Years in 2023 and we must say there is no comparison, Secrets Akumal is by far the superior resort in all aspects. Do not hesitate: book Akumal!

    Our son was married at Secrets Akumal on May 11, 2024 and our entire trip, along with 85 attendees, couldn't have been better. The rooms were large and clean, the staff was very friendly, and the food and drink throughout the resort was exceptional! The wedding coordinator, Elsa, ensured that every detail was accounted for and the wedding and reception exceeded our expectations! All of the guests made comments about everything was amazing and the best wedding ever! Well done!

    My husband and I traveled to Secrets Akumal Riviera Maya for vacation in mid March. The resort is absolutely beautiful, the food amazing and the staff so attentive. We want to give a shout out to Francisco Morales and Eduardo Vasquez. Francisco was the beach attendant for most of our stay. He was very friendly, extremely attentive, and hard working. We looked forward to seeing him everyday and enjoyed getting to know him. Eduardo, the bar tender at Barracuda’s, made the best drinks. Thank you for making our stay extra special and relaxing! We can’t wait to go back!
