Our Opinion

The Grand Sirenis is one of our more popular 5 star resorts for travelers who are looking for a modern and contemporary setting. Perched on its own secluded crystal clear cove, the Grand Sirenis Mayan Beach is great for snorkelers and ocean lovers. The rooms are modern, the service is excellent, especially the poolside service. Definitely recommended for couples looking to relax on the white sand beaches of the Riviera Maya.


This elegant and contemporary yet minimalist-style resort is home to beautiful cenotes and a secluded cove, a true snorkeler's paradise. The Grand Sirenis features fabulous dining, superb accommodations, lush tropical surroundings and a luxurious 26,910 square-foot full-service spa make it the perfect vacation spot for anyone looking to achieve relaxation and escape the ordinary.

Location: In Akumal, 90 minutes from the airport, 120 minutes from downtown Cancun, in the heart of the Mayan Riviera. The popular shopping town of Playa del Carmen is 40 minutes away.

  • Unspoiled beach and turquoise water in a tranquil cove
  • Expansive Mayan-inspired spa providing unique wellness rituals
  • Sprawling lazy river and steps from a Dolphin Park
  • Free Wi-Fi in room

Jan 2018 Mexican Vacation

A girlfriend and I traveled to this resort January 7- 14, 2018. Everything was great. We each got our own rooms.The resort is large so they provide a shuttle if you need it or desire it but it is walkable. They have maintained a great deal of the natural foliage and they are trying to be eco. There are dolphins on site so you can visit them for free, or do a swim for a charge. The resort has 3 pools, one party one, one private for members and a quiet one near the beach. There is a lazy river which kids would enjoy and it is very gentle so all but the most young members of the clan can do it. It is in the shade so it is most pleasurable when it is the heat of the day.The beach is a bit rocky, but does have a cove so you can swim even when the red flag is out. Lots of people seemed to enjoy snorkelling at this beach. The hotel seems to be on a section of beach that is secluded so you cannot walk along the beach and see other resorts like you might at other hotels.We booked our rooms through Westjet Vacation and seemed to have been placed in the " nicer" section of the resort. Supposedly our rooms allowed us 3 a la carte dinners vs 2, free safes, and free wifi. The wifi is not really a bonus because it did not work very well . I know you are on vacation so wifi should not be a big deal but when you want to check your flight arrangements or arrange pickups at home it would be nice. Our rooms were large comfortable and clean. The hotel has many 3 story buildings that have an indoor outdoor vibe, Many of the buildings have the concierge in the lobby. The buildings do carry sound up so you can hear conversations in the lobby upstairs but not adversely so. All the staff was great, except as usual the front desk, but since this seems to be common to all the resorts in Mexico it was not a big surprise. If you are travelling for the first time to Mexico be aware that when you check out they hand you a piece of paper. If you are taking the resort transportation back to the airport you need this to get on the bus. The resort does not say anything and if you do not know you may not keep track of it and may not get on the bus. I did this once at a different resort as no one told me it was significant I lost the paper and I just about did not get a ride to the airport.

great huge resort with plenty of natural areas on site to get away from the crowd (with a drink in your hand)

This is the largest Riviera resort we have stayed in. Also, all the rooms are suites which include an open double jacuzzi bath and a shower. I loved this resort mainly because of the staff (including a concierge that really cared and helped with your stay) the bartenders and waitstaff and even the groundskeeper that cut open a coconut for me to drink) the beautiful resort property (including the natural areas for hiking undeveloped beach and jungle,cenote, 5 trails,the lazy river with free tubes that take you for a great tour of the tropical gardens and the beach area with great snorkeling),and the very good specialty restaurants. I would return here and recommend this to anyone. Specifics: I booked with Apple Vacations for a very reasonable rate and the resort treated us like VIPs...I did not upgrade and loved my room including the balcony and the closeness to the beach...You will see coatis and birds and sereques roaming the resort...there is a very nice spa on site that overlooks the dolphin pool....if you want a special drink the bartenders will make it for you...also they have name brand alcohol if you ask...Bring water shoes/keens the beach is rocky but that means great snorkeling...If you don't like it here you are probably not my type of traveler

Misleading Star Rating

My friend and I are well travelled and enjoy luxury. It’s difficult to articulate the disappointment we endured at the disgraceful Grand Sirenis, suffice to say after a few hours there we told our rep we were happy to pay half our holiday price again, each, to vacate. It genuinely was that bad. It is everything you do not expect with 5* accommodation. At best it is 3* with 1 to 2* cleanliness and service. * No welcome drinks upon arrival* Reception had used tissues and dust all over the desk* Reception Staff so overworked they multi-task and forget all about customer care* All Staff seem over worked and I assume underpaid due to their lack of care and attention (one waitress covering hundreds of beds around the pool, no assistance in moving sunbeds to a shaded area and generally miserable - never saw anybody touch their heart as a sign of respect/greeting - all heads down ignoring guests)* Buffet restaurants like school canteens* No waiters have a dedicated section so they’re all rushing around like headless chickens* Al la Carte restaurants much the in the Buffet better quality but then you have children dipping their fingers in food and coughing and sneezing over it* We saw the same dirty fingerprints on the windows 4 days running* Mouldy, smelly rooms unless you pay to upgrade (we were told by TUI rep they are slowly making their way through refurbishing)* Lift to rooms akin to a grotty tower block somewhere undesirable (rattling noise, dirty)* Broken tiles everywhere - floors, in pools and lazy river* Huge queues for rubber rings for the lazy river so it was full of children walking, splashing and screaming their way around on foot* No quiet areas and no adults only area* Distinct smell of sewers on the small shingle, rocky beach. So bad I can’t believe people sat amongst it and ate the food cooked at the BBQ* Dirty nappies, tissues, plasters (saw a few children bleeding from cutting themselves on broken tiles) and food wrappers around pool from the day before (clearly not cleaned)* Sunbeds black with grime and oil* Poor quality drinks and easier to get alcohol than water or coffee* 5 litre water bottle in room so no idea how an older person or weak person would get on with lifting it. Had to chase up replenishments daily. * Entertainment clearly aimed at children despite starting at 9.30pm* Depending where you are you can hear the nightclub music and noise until 2am gone* Toilet cubicles so tiny you could hardly prepare yourself to use the loo!Do not go here if you want to relax or are expecting 5*, it really is not worthy of its rating!
