    Wow, absolutely incredible!

    Secrets Akumal absolutely exceeded all of our expectations. It felt like a fantasy land. From the incredible dining, best spa I have ever been to, to the gorgeous setting, it felt like heaven. The best part of the whole experience was the staff. They went above and beyond and made us feel so welcome. 10/10 will definitely go back!

    Great time

    Hotel was great. We ate at O eana, Bordeaux, Portofino and the Mexican restaurant. All were good except the Mexican, definitely can skip. Swam with the turtles and Gina and Jorge were great guides. Did thr bike tour which was fun as well. The entertainment staff were awesome. Always looked forward to seeing Gina, Jorge, Gabriel, Abraham, Carlos and Kevin.

    Great time

    We had a great time. The food is impeccable. Lots of sargassum which was unfortunate. They tried to clean it up but it was just too much. Was it worth the price? No. Pretty expensive coming from Canada. There were about 6 weddings while we were there. Assuming it is a hot spot for weddings.

    Perfection & luxury- customer service is unrivalled. Can’t wait to return!!

    We stayed here for 7 nights in June 2024. We have been to Mexico several times & secrets Akumal has been on my list for a while. It’s just simply gorgeous, a real relaxing adults only beautiful resort. We can’t fault it. The service is what makes this resort stand head and shoulders above other resorts for us. We’ve always had amazing service but this really was next level. Attentive & immediate without being too stuffy, the employees here really seem to love what they do & where they work. Stand out for us were Jesus at the swim up bar, Daniel at Barracuda bar (he makes the best margaritas!), fabiola at the spa and the pool concierge & pool waitress around the main pool (we didn’t catch their names !) however these are just a few of the amazing staff who all work so very hard. The resort itself is small but initially you do get lost a few times, mainly due to the meandering walkways under the foliage but it’s all good- you find your way to your room or a bar eventually! 🤣 The breakfast buffet & lunch buffet was amazing, freshly cooked food stations, including tuna, salmon or steak. The evening restaurants were generally very good, the only one we would recommend a change to is the seaside grill, the outdoors steak house. There are some more lights needed around the edges of the restaurant as it makes it hard to read the menu, and it was very hot! But honestly that’s us being picky & not a big deal at all! We had stunning weather, 32-35 every day with maybe 2 rain storms around 6am which passes quickly. It was almost too hot most of the time- so we spent all day every day in swim up pool floating around. All of the pools were busy but we never struggled to get a bed or good service. Our pool concierge was just wonderful, constantly checking in on us, changing our towels and making sure we had enough shade. We are now looking at coming back to here for 5 nights in 2025 and also trying out secrets maroma beach as a 2 hotel twin holiday. We would come back this year in a heartbeat but there are many other places to try. However if you are considering this hotel, stop thinking about it & book it! We bloody loved it & highly highly recommend. Almost 13,000 reviews don’t lie!! Feel free to message with any questions!
