I won a 4 night stay at the Secrets Akumal property near Tulum, Mexico. The resort will be a year old next week and is very clean and the staff is extremely helpful. I stayed in an Ocean View Suite on the 4th floor. The rooms are large with the stone marble floors and tiles. Over the palm trees, I could see the beautiful ocean and of course there are the beach front rooms. The beach is wonderful, nice and wide with soft white sand. There is wonderful snorkeling in front of the property with lots of fish and turtles. There are 3 lovely pools. The one closest to the main building is the quietest, the middle pool is nice and the one closest to the ocean had a swim up bar and was very busy.
The beautiful grounds have the fire pits, cabanas, hammocks, swings and many areas sectioned of for water with one pond full of fish. They do have a nice spa, and we enjoyed the nightly entertainment with shows and music. We were able to sit on our lanai and listen to the music.
