Excellent beaches, modern and clean facilities.

Pros: Everything
Cons: I wish they would enforce the no reservo rule for chairs on the beach and around the pool. Peaople get up at 6AM to save chairs then go back to bed
There is about a mile of beach on this property, so there is plenty of room. Plenty of the palapias too. I'm a beach, not pool person, but the pools (there are several) are nice (although there are not enough chairs). The food is buffet style but there is always a good selection. You'll get something you don't like one in a while, but just go back and get something else. The grounds and common spaces are great, as is the room. My only "complaint" is that they either don't believe in using fabric softener for the towels or these things are made from sand paper.

Close to the beach

Pros: Food
Location: Did a private excursion to Chichen Itza through the hotel and recommend it. However, make sure you ask to go to Ik-Kil cenote.
Stayed in building 83 in the adults only section. Initially had some issues with ac but they were taken care of and the rest of the experience was pleasant. Only felt that after having no ac for a couple days the resort would try to apologize in some way but they did not. Our building had butler service which to be honest didn't do much but they did exchange our beach towels for us. The food was amazing. I highly recommend the Alux and Arlequin restaurants. Le gourmet and Dolce Vita were only so-so. If I could, I would eat at Alux every night I was there. Beach is a little rocky so you may want to bring water shoes.

Nothing but Beautiful!

The Akumal location is the least busy and most beautiful out of all the sister resorts. The only bad thing I have to say is its hot, all day, everywhere. We kept the blinds closed in the room to help. The restaurants are hot. The refrigerators in the room are just a box to keep your drinks in, lukewarm. It's like this everywhere. If you go be prepared for the heat. It's so beautiful, you will be amazed. It's exactly what I expected in Mexico in July. If you can't handle the heat go in December.

Not luxury

If you can't speak Spanish I wouldn't go here. Drinks are weak. Food was okay, not horrible. Definitely eat at the Brazilian place. We were not told about many of the "offerings". Entertainment was so-so. And the beach isn't a normal beach.... good for children though. But the main issue is communication and the misconception that this is luxury.
