second trip....which resort?

Staring to think about our next trip to Mexico this fall and it has to be the Akumal area. We love the beach in Akumal and seeing the Turtles there.

Stayed at the Sirenis last trip and we loved it. Enjoyed all the resort had to offer, it was clean and well staffed. We loved the big rooms and I really loved the huge tub! The beds were comfortable and with some back issues this is important to us.

We enjoy the beach, just swimming, reading and snorkeling most of the time.

Hopefully this gives enough info for those of you who have been to a few resorts in this area...we really appreciate what you think of the places you have stayed and why you like them. It will help me narrow the search as we try to pick our next getaway.

Oh...important also...price, not planning to spend a fortune.

Looking forward to your insights.

Thanks!

Grand Palladium is four resorts in one. We have been there twice and love it.

Bahia Principe is made up of 3 resorts, This will be our first trip there next week

Both are in easy collectivo range to get to Akumal and do a day thing there

Last October I stayed at the GBP. Excellent, I recommend the Tulum section. Great beach good snorkel and close to Akumel. I will be back there this October and can't wait. Rent a car and see the area, Tulum, Muyil, Coba, and of course the tutles in Akumel bay. The car will be about the same as your tansfer would cost.

Think about CRT (Catalonia Royal Tulum) resort - great beach / adults only / small

Or a condo on Akumal / Half Moon Bay

CRT has a better beach and snorkeling than Bahai

Sorry, Akumal Beach is the best
