    Everything was beautiful. The room was clean, the restaurants were fabulous and best of all was the entertainment staff. Loved Jordan. They really did their best to keep everyone entertained. The beach has a lot of seaweed, but they spend the entire day keeping it cleaned up. Not everything was open and fully functional, but that is to be expected during this time and we arrived the second day of opening. This place is awesome! Snorkel with the turtles, the highlight of my trip.

    FANTASTIC REOPENING at Secrets Akumal!

    We took advantage of low airfares and room rates to revisit SEARM beginning on the first day of their reopening, July 1, 2020. My wife and I were the very first guests to arrive and received an unexpected "royal welcome" from the General Manager and staff! A few things had to be adjusted due to COVID-19 precautions, but the luxury, quality, and personalized service were top-notch as usual. Cleanliness and sanitation measures made us feel safer in destination than at home. Many, many employees from every area deserve mention, but the stand-outs this trip included Ivan (who went out of his way every day to geet us and see to our comfort poolside and on the beach); Head Concierge Jerica; Building 4 concierge Talia; waiters Eleazar (!!!), Martin, Gabriel, Jose, Andres, Arely, and Felipe; Seaside Cafe manager Alberto; Jesus from the Spa; and Entertainment Team member Gisel. Thanks also to Todd and Marcela from UVC. All these and more offered us outstanding "service with a smile"--even from behind the masks and face shields!

    Can't wait to return!!

    We absolutely can't wait to get back to this beautiful resort in September for our anniversary. This will be our 3rd time there. Everything about the resort is amazing -- the food, drinks, rooms, service, landscaping, beach, snorkeling. But what really makes it truly terrific is the amazing staff, especially the Entertainment Team. They really do go out of their way to make sure you are having a great time. We can't wait to see Rene, Jonas, Mariana, Jordan, and especially Gisel. Gisel, is a HUGE reason we can't wait to get back! She is absolutely awesome and really made our last trip outstanding and memorable. We love these people!!

    Best Place to Spend a Relaxing Vacation

    We have been going to Secrets Akumal ever since it opened. We have our trip planned to go back this August and are counting the days. We have always found the resort to be the perfect place - you could not ask for a more caring, wonderful staff. They care about you having an enjoyable time at their resort.
