Beautiful Resort and Wonderful Staff

My husband and stayed here on our first trip to Mexico and are now ruined for any other resort! The facilities are top notch - clean and kept in great condition (we were told the resort was 2 years old but it looked as though it opened the day before) - and the grounds are lush, with beautiful and varied plantings. There are multiple pools with different vibes. One always had upbeat music playing and was located next to the beach and a bar; others were more secluded but still offered poolside service. The beach area is well cared for, again offering chairside service. We saw no shortage of chairs or towels during our visit and the staff was quick to turn over chairs that had been abandoned. The rooms are very nicely appointed, with comfortable beds and Jacuzzi tubs in the bathroom. The finishes are high end and the supplied shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, etc. have a fresh somewhat minty smell and come in full size bottles. The swim out pool (from your room) was very refreshing and kept sparkling clean by daily service. The mini fridge was stocked at least once/day and the nightly turn down service had a different treat each night (slippers, flowers, etc).Each staff member we encountered smiled, made eye contact and happily greeted us. Karen, our concierge, heard me mention that I preferred plain M&Ms to the peanut version we found in our mini bar and personally brought me a package! We splurged on a couples hot stone massage and cannot recommend it enough. While we don't recall the names of the wonderful ladies who took care of us, they were very professional, gracious and did a great job. The hydrotherapy circuit was very relaxing as well!Finally, the snorkeling was top notch and we saw turtles, stingrays and a wide variety of fish...all within a few hundred feet of the beach.

Perfect Honeymoon Getaway

My wife and I spent the week here following many recommendations from others that have been to Secrets Akumal. To help those out I'll break this down into small sections.Service (5 out of 5)From the moment we arrived we were greeted with a cold towel, a glass of champagne, and a host to show us around the grounds. All week we talked about the attention to detail the hosts, bartenders, servers, and staff had. Victor from the pools always made sure to stop by and talk to us, while being quick to make his rounds to others as well. Santiago in the Preferred Club was top notch as well.Entertainment (5 out of 5)The entertainment staff make this place 100% worth staying at, Little Jonas, Hamlet, Felix, Laura, Ana, Karen, Marshmallow, Mexican Chocolate, Horacio, this crew knows how to make everyone relax and have a great time. We biked, kayaked, visited shows, played beach volleyball, and I won a t-shirt for a football toss.Food (5 out of 5)Our food experience may have been different from others here but it was awesome. We ate at El Patio (great tacos), Oceana (cream of clam soup was incredible), Portofino, Market Cafe (breakfast), and Seaside one night as well. The room service pizza, nachos, and cheesecake was clutch. Our favorite was the chicken club sandwhich you could get at lunch by the pool. The preferred club was great for us to grab snacks or a small breakfast before our excursion.Pools and Spa (5/5)Pools were well kept and were a refreshing temperature. Get out early to claim a chair, they go quick!The spa was pleasantly relaxing and is state of the art. Super clean, great service, and a small escape from everything else.Location (5/5)We did a excursion with Adventuras Mayas and were able to go experience that while also being back on site at the resort by 2. Others had a much further trip.Room (5/5)We had a swimout room (recommend) and our room was a great temperature. The king size mattress was comfortable and the shower had great pressure.OverallWe had an incredible experience. Highly recommended and will for sure visit again.

Honeymoon heaven

My husband and I recently visited secrets and were blown away by the beauty of this hotel, it caters for everyone's needs. Starting from arrival to sadly leaving at the end we enjoyed the activities, food, entertainment and the staff were great! Especially Lorezo, Saul and Benjamin! We were upgraded to preferred club and our room was beautiful, the turn down service was a nice touch and the mini bar was greatly appreciated by my husband! Would highly recommend! And not forgetting the best bit! The turtles are incredible and the beach is beautiful! Favourite restaurant is Bordeaux and Himitsu ( our only complaint is the need for air con In this restaurant as it is very hot!) tips for anybody visiting buy OFF the mosquito spray!
