Thank you for your visit and your comments! Feedback is our most important tool for improving. However, I must confess that we are very concerned to hear you had this experience during your stay. We are deeply sorry to hear that you felt poorly during your stay and not being immediately informed as we would have called a doctor for a checkup, however we would like to take the opportunity to point out that our resort undergoes regular independent audits sent both by the company and the tour operators we collaborate with, to ensure our strict food safety management procedures imposed on a global level by the company, are being followed and respected at all times; under no circumstances would we put our guests health at risk, their safety being of course our main concern, and sincerely hope that both are totally recovered. Thank you again for your visit and constructuve critics, our primary goal being to assure our guests feel comfortable and fully enjoy their visits, we are eager to regain your confidence during another occasion if you gave us that chance. Sincerely,

Hotel was nice, staff was nice. The overall location on the beach would have been great but there was seaweed everywhere which caused a terrible odor. Definitely would not upgrade to the premium suites or liquor package, its a joke. Drinks were watered down and food was sub par.

We are happy to hear that our resort and staff were able to meet all your needs during your stay. We appreciate your feedback and let us mention that currently the Riviera Maya is experiencing higher than normal amounts of seaweed, where our resort staff works diligently from the early morning hours each day to remove what washes up in order to keep our beautiful beaches clean and accessible for guests to enjoy. Thank you for your understanding! Best regards,

Our stay at Secrets Akumal was an overall Great Experience. The only drawback that I felt was not having any sister resorts next to it so there would be more of a restaurant selection. The hotel has an Activity Group of employees that do several things throughout the day and evening to include Yoga on the Beach, Snorkeling, Various Pool Games, Beach Volleyball, Card Games and a nightly show in the Pavilion Theatre. Pool staff and waiters were very attentive to your needs while lounging at the Beach or Pool. Great Live Music performances daily by the pool as well as the Lounge at night.

Incredible place

Pros: The people, service, pools, beach, food (burgers are divine) comfort, decor, rooms, everything!
Location: Akumal beach has incredible snorkling and turtle watching. Not to miss.
We just came back from a wonderful trip to Secrets Akumal. Before the trip, I read many reviews to help us choose our resort. The reviews helped me make the choice to go there. I am so happy that we did. The resort is spotless. The rooms are clean, and have everything for an enjoyable stay. Even the room service (which was the same quality as a top restaurant) privacy box in genius! The smart TV even allowed us to watch our netflix when we felt like staying in. The shows were good. The service was fantastic. A special shout out to Silvia at the beach bar. She remembered our favorite drinks, and took great care of us. She made us feel like part of the family. The entire staff was great. They work hard. The beach was beautiful. The lounge chairs and beds by the pool and beach are super comfortable. Even the mattresses floating around made it that much more relaxing. There are 3 huge pools. We loved the quiet pool in the back. There was this relaxing soft music. The rooms were full, but it never felt crowded. We stayed in many places on Riviera Maya. This was, by far, our favorite.
