Stay in the Golden upgraded section. It has it's own private pool and breakfast/lunch buffet. Love the trolley system and the cleaning of the resort. Great value. LOTS of food choices and snacks until midnight. Akumal is the best of the 3 in my opinion.

Beautiful resort, great water park for kids, good food we enjoy our vacation. We definitely back to the resort. Just one thing was to many people the time that we stay so every time we ask for towels for the pool they don't have. But we had a great time. The beach is beautiful and my kids enjoyed a lot.
