Best Akumal Beach Resorts - All Inclusive Luxury and Comfort

Looking for a great Akumal Beach resort?  Nestled along the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea lies a hidden gem, a place where the sand is as soft as silk and the sun shines brighter than diamonds. This is Akumal Beach, a slice of heaven on earth that promises to rejuvenate even the weariest of souls.

We have put together a bliss list of the best resorts in Akumal Beach - including Akumal Beach Resort itself

Akumal was recently named one of the best destination beach vacation spots in the world by TripAdvisor. Turtles cruise the clear waters along with a host of colorful fish species, giving the location the title from the Mayan language.

As I stepped onto the pristine shore, I was greeted by a smiling local who offered me a refreshing coconut drink. Sipping on the sweet nectar, I couldn't help but feel a sense of tranquility wash over me. This is a place where time slows down, where the only thing that matters is the rhythm of the waves and the laughter of the children playing in the sand.

As I strolled down the beach, I came across a group of travelers huddled around a snorkeling guide, eager to explore the underwater world that lay just beyond the shore. They were in for a treat, as Akumal is known for its abundant sea life, including colorful fish, sea turtles, and even the occasional manatee. I joined in on the adventure and was mesmerized by the vibrant coral reefs and playful dolphins that swam alongside us.

Time to review the resorts I thought.

What Reviewers Say: The beach at Akumal Resort is a feature that comes up again and again in the reviews as a notch up. Especially compared with other beaches in the area. Some advise to watch out for the winds in March. The massages for $55 an hour are worth it. A report of small glasses used for drinks. Some more used to more expensive resorts had trouble dealing with the shift to more standard rooms and facilities. On the other hand many more are impressed with the value at the resort.

Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort & Spa - A Haven of Tranquility on Mexico's Caribbean Coast

Discover a world of tropical bliss at the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort & Spa, where sun-kissed days by the pool and tranquil nights in luxurious accommodations await you. Nestled on the waterfront of Akumal, this all-inclusive resort is a mere 10-minute drive from the idyllic Akumal Beach and Hekab Be Biblioteca.

As I walked through the lush, palm-lined paths of the resort, I was struck by the sense of peace that permeated the air. Guests lounged by the pools, sipped cocktails at the beach bar, and indulged in pampering spa treatments, all with a smile on their faces. It was clear that this was a place designed for relaxation and rejuvenation.

Real Guest Review: Grand Sirenis Resort Riviera Maya, Mexico | An In Depth Look Inside

The video provides a tour of the Grand Serenis Riviera Maya, a massive all-inclusive resort that combines two former resorts. The resort features two main lobbies, a large main buffet, six a la carte restaurants, a coffee bar, a relaxation pool, a beach, two main pools, and various recreational activities such as a kids club, a yoga studio, and a spa. The resort also has shuttle stops for transportation and placards for wildlife sightings. The resort has 948 rooms split between two sections, each with a unique design and outdoor space. Upgrading to a club level room or a platinum presidential suite provides additional amenities. The resort is located off highway 307, about an hour south of Cancun airport and 20 minutes north of Tulum.

I settled into my room, a spacious and elegantly appointed space complete with a private balcony, spa tub, and Smart TV. I couldn't help but bask in the luxurious atmosphere as I soaked in the tub and gazed out at the breathtaking views.

The dining options at Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya are equally indulgent, with 10 on-site restaurants serving up a delectable array of international cuisine. Whether you're in the mood for a leisurely breakfast at the complimentary buffet, a quick bite from the coffee shop/cafe, or a romantic dinner at Ikebana, there's something to suit every taste. And of course, there are plenty of bars and lounges to enjoy a refreshing drink at any time of day.

When it was time to venture out, I took a short drive to Akumal Beach and spent the day lounging on the soft, white sand and swimming in the crystal-clear waters. It was the perfect way to immerse myself in the beauty of the Caribbean coast.

But the real highlight of my stay at Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya was the spa. With body treatments and facials on offer, it was the perfect place to unwind and pamper myself. As I relaxed on the massage table, I could feel the stress of everyday life melting away.

In conclusion, if you're looking for a tropical escape that promises a peaceful and indulgent experience, look no further than the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort & Spa. With its luxurious accommodations, on-site dining, and breathtaking surroundings, this resort is the perfect haven for travelers seeking relaxation and rejuvenation.

Tulum All Inclusive Resorts

Discovering the Charm of Tulum: An Alternative to Akumal Beach

Tulum All Inclusive ResortsTulum All Inclusive Resorts

Tulum, located just south of Akumal along the Caribbean coast of Mexico, is quickly becoming a popular destination for travelers in search of a more laid-back, bohemian experience. Instead of the traditional all-inclusive resorts found in other parts of Mexico, Tulum offers a unique blend of eco-friendly accommodations, world-class dining, and cultural attractions.

One of the biggest draws of Tulum is its selection of all-inclusive resorts that cater to a more mindful and sustainable lifestyle. These resorts often feature yoga classes, organic farm-to-table dining options, and eco-friendly amenities such as solar power and biodegradable toiletries. Visitors can enjoy a luxurious and guilt-free getaway, surrounded by the natural beauty of the jungle and the sea.

Another difference between Tulum and Akumal is the type of activities available. While both destinations offer beach and water-based activities, Tulum also has a vibrant cultural scene. Visitors can explore the ruins of the ancient Mayan city of Tulum, visit nearby cenotes (natural sinkholes), and experience traditional Mexican folk dances and live music.

In terms of dining, Tulum boasts a diverse range of restaurants, from upscale seafood joints to casual beachside eateries. The food scene in Tulum is renowned for its farm-to-table philosophy and innovative cuisine, using locally sourced ingredients and seasonal produce.

Overall, Tulum offers a unique and authentic experience for travelers seeking a more natural and culturally rich vacation. While Akumal is a great option for those looking for a traditional beach getaway, Tulum is the perfect destination for those seeking a more immersive and sustainable travel experience.

Later, as I lounged on a beach chair, I struck up a conversation with a couple who had been visiting Akumal for years. "It's the people that keep us coming back," the husband told me. "Everyone here is so friendly and welcoming. It feels like coming home." I couldn't agree more. From the servers at the beachside bars to the vendors selling handmade trinkets, the people of Akumal radiate warmth and hospitality.

As the sun began to set, casting a golden glow over the sea, I made my way back to my room at a nearby resort. The accommodations were comfortable and spacious, with a balcony overlooking the ocean. It was the perfect place to relax and reflect on the day's adventures.

In conclusion, Akumal Beach is a true paradise, a place where one can escape the hustle and bustle of the world and simply bask in the beauty of nature. Whether you're a seasoned traveler or a first-timer, this is a destination that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
