Grand Palladium Kantenah Resort & Spa - All Inclusive Very good 8.2 We loved this place and would consider returning to the resort again. The food was always quality with head chefs constantly walking the three buffets to ensure everything meets their standards. Waiters and waitresses ensured everything we needed was at our disposal, we appreciated their efforts so much that every time we sat down to eat we left them a tip. It's not mandatory to do so but learned it was very much appreciated as we got to know our usual waiters thorought the week. Be sure to bring smaller bills and not only large bills before leaving home. The location is convenient to get out and see things like ancient ruins, censored, and Xel Ha which was a great place to go snorkeling for the day. Xel Ha has become a bit too crowded and over used in my opinion since the last time we visited 15 years ago. Every morning we were greeted on the beach or at the huge pool by a group of young promoters to get out and play volleyball or beach aerobics or to come join the music and dance by the pool. These were The People of Palladium (POP) and they also put on really really really great shows at night, if you're still up at that time of night they're definately worth going to see. There are two theaters, one at the Kantenah/Colonial and another at White Sands/Riviera, get a map you'll use it frequently for the first couple of days. What stood out the most was the attitude of the staff and how comfortable they made us feel. Every one of the staff acknowledges guests with a smile whether they're working on the grounds with hand tools or behind the counter. At all hours of the night there are employees walking the grounds escorting people to their rooms, we were lost the first night. The Grand Palladium is a large facility set in the jungle so you must take lit footpaths or the tram to get around which runs from early in the morning to 2am.
Grand Palladium White Sand Resort & Spa - All Inclusive Very good 8.1 The facilities were excellent. Clean and well kept. Staff was helpful and attentive. Buffet's were the best places to eat.
Grand Palladium Riviera Resort & Spa - All Inclusive Good 7.9 Armando the bartender at La Laguna bar. The food in general.
The Royal Suites Yucatan by Palladium - Adults Only Very good 8.4 Loved the variety and expansiveness of 5 resorts in 1!!
Akumal Bay Beach & Wellness Resort Good 7.8 Friendly staff (Emmanuel, Alex et al), impeccable surroundings, delicious food. Exceptional service from everyone, almost like a competition on who could be friendliest/most accommodating! A true heaven on earth for us. Can't wait to go back...
Hotel Club Akumal Caribe Very good 8.2 This was our second stay at the hotel. As before our room was spacious, clean and comfortable.It is great to have free water supplied in the room, and a fridge too. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food served is delicious, as too is the breakfast. They offer an extensive menu. We found it to be excellent value for money. The main draw for us is the location...the beach is beautiful and kept very clean. And the turtles!!! We snorkelled at least twice every day and had the privilege of spotting turtles every time. We would definitely recommend this hotel.
Las Villas Akumal Excellent 8.6 The garden view room was big and super clean, all the kitchen appliances where spotless. Liz was very efficient and helped us as soon as I told her I had a little problem. Big bathroom with a nice powerful shower. WIFI worked perfect. Bed was comfy. Nice resting area very useful for a rainy day. I got a free snorkelling gear for a week. Free kayaks. Plenty of resting chairs. Clean and lovely temperature in the swimming pool. 10 mins walking to the main Akumal beach. I loved it and I'll be back!
Tanik Condos Wonderful 9.2 As somewhere to relax for 4 nights after our 22-day drive (June/July 2014) through Mexico, Belize and Guatemala, this was perfect, and absolute luxury after many nights in "jungle cabanas"! The swimming pool was a little smaller than it looked on the photos (possibly a little inconvenient when the other apartments in the same block have numerous children staying) and the sea is really too rocky to go for a swim there - even with water shoes. Conveniently close to local (tourist) shops for food and all essentials, and a short drive into the local village - making an effort to discover what the shops actually stock when you get inside - has everything at about half the price of the tourist shops. Very few bugs outside compared to other places we had stayed, although we lit a mosquito coil when we sat outside in the evening to keep the little biting flies away. Magnificent views of multiple thunderstorms out at sea. There's interesting wildlife close at hand if you look for it - a large family of coatis just across the road; turtles laying eggs and hatching out on the beach (don't go too close and scare them - see the "turtle lady", a very nice woman from California who guards the turtle nests and is more than happy to educate visitors with everything there is to know about turtles).
Luna Azul Condos Very good 8.1 Loccation to snorkeling- top notch spot! Staff were super friendly and accomadating Very clean facilities Very secure with a guard every night. Area ft very safe.
Hotel Que Onda Very good 8.2 We stayed five nights. We were treated like family. Middle of jungle, quiet except the birds. Wonderful little roads to walk and they have free bicycles. The mini buses stop at the end of their road to take you anywhere from cancun to talum. Easy! The "collectivo"s run every few minutes. Just wave them down like a taxi. This bed and breakfast is a destination mellowing out place. Breakfasts are amazing, homemade Italian dinners available. White table clothes! Very classy.
Villa Turquesa Akumal
Vista del Mar Hotel Very good 8.5 We just got back from a very restful week at Vista Del Mar. Staff was helpful and great location.
Hotel Akumal Pleasant 6.8 Free WiFi and air conditioning. That's about it.
