Tips From a Travel Agent

  • A Secrets Akumal wedding is perfect for active groups as the resort offers a variety of water-based activities such as, scuba diving, snorkeling, and access to the world’s largest underground river nearby.

  • Located in a remote location halfway between Playa del Carmen and Cancun, it’s perfect for wedding groups who want to relax and play on-site.

  • “Akumal” translates to “place of the turtles” and just 50 yards off of the resort’s beach you can swim with the protected species along with other tropical fish and rays.

Resort Insights

“This resort is incredible! It was everything we hoped it would be and more! I read a LOT of reviews before booking our Honeymoon here and they were all on point. This is truly a 5 star resort where you are treated like family. The beaches, pools, and entire resort are pristine and so beautiful. Every staff member we interacted with greeted us with a smile. The entertainment staff makes this resort one of the best – with activities all day long, they keep everyone laughing and having a great time.” – Carena C. 2/20

“This place is absolutely amazing, my girlfriend and I had one of the best stays in our lives so far. Everyone working there is super friendly, everything is super clean, they have different fun activities planned for everyone each day, a great place for both the young and old, you can swim right off your beach and see awesome sea turtles, I would give them more stars if I could.” – Sam S. 2/20

“Paradise. This place is the definition of paradise. My wife and I spent a week here for our honeymoon. We experienced some of the best service, food, and relaxation we have ever experienced. The view at the beach, the delicious drinks, the friendly staff, the elegant nights out at the restaurants… all of it made for the best vacation I have taken.

Initially I wondered if we should have done something a little less expensive, but as soon as I was there, I knew it was worth every penny. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.” – Michael P. 2/19

“Really loved this hotel. Great attention to detail. The staff are obviously well looked after as they all do an exceptional job. Juan kept our drinks topped up round the pool, Ivan kept us smiling at breakfast, Roberto fed us some fantastic Italian food and Saul from the concierge team always made sure we were having the BEST time possible.
All the rooms are suites so incredibly spacious and very tastefully decorated. The different pools make lovely areas to either relax or have a few drinks depending on your mood. The beach is stunning and you have the incredible opportunity to snorkel with turtles by just wading out into the waters. The hotel also makes a great effort with loads of entertainment and different dining options. I had a great time!” – Charlotte B. 12/18

“Had a symbolic wedding ceremony here. I cant even put into words the hospitality we received and how beautiful this place is. Everytime we came back to our room, something was waiting for us. The water was warm. The food was good. I think my only complaint which might be fine for many, there isnt much choices for the night life. Would definitely go back. Reasonable price for an extraordinary vacation!” – Tonya S. 11/18
