all inclusive deals

Is there somewhere on trip advisor that rates and reviews "all inclusives?'" Anyone have comments about Akumai Resort--advertising $59/night all inclusive? No hurricanes from jan-april are there to worry about? What about the new all inclusive by the "isla mujeres area"--Villa Del palmer from bookit.com? WOuld that have a decent beach? We've been to cancun 10 years ago and loved it. going back with two single adult children. any suggestions where to stay...are there really good deals or too good to be true?

"are there really good deals or too good to be true?"

This really depends on how you book your vacation. If you go with a reputable company like Funjet, Orbitz, Apple, etc. you aren't going to get ripped off. Having said that, you really need to research the resorts carefully because (IMO) this is why people are most disappointed in their choice, ie, expectations didn't match price point.

So first, decide on your budget. Next, enter your travel dates and how many passengers into the search engine of one of the above company sites (it will tell you which ones are AI and which are EP). Jot down what resorts align with your price point. Come back here and read reviews (specifically focusing on whats most important to you, ie, beach, swim up bar, proximity to shopping, etc...) Look at the traveller pics. Post topics here for specific questions you're not finding in reviews.

Regarding Akumal Beach Resort (ABR). The reviews are mixed. They do have a group of dedicated followers. The rest seem to be split. Some say it is just 'ok', others say it is a dump.

Hurrican season is from June 1st thru November 31st, so no worries in April. It is still a good idea to purchase trip insurance though, just in case someone is injured or sick and needs medical treatment.

Can't give advice on the new resort you mentioned or where to go with single adult kids, as mine are still youngins :-)
