Hotel Akumal Caribe and Akumal Beach Resort

Hello all - What are the major differences between Hotel Akumal Caribe and Akumal Beach resort? For those who are familiar with or who have stay at both resorts - Which do you prefer and why?

Are both resorts in the same bay and somewhat near each other?

Thank you.

While I have never stayed at HAC, many of my friends do

Both are on the main Akumal Beach

HAC has hotel rooms (3 floor unit) with pool but right beside the Secrets resort construction

HAC has casitas behind Lol-Ha that are more quiet and larger

HAC rooms also has a small fridge and in the corner units a small kitchenette (additional $)

HAC offers a bfast at Lol-Ha

ABR is a full All inclusive resort (coffee pots/fridges are extra $)

ABR's beaches are less crowded as the public stays in front of Lol-Ha and HAC

Let me know what else you need to know as I am here in Akumal for another week

Thank you so much VSD. Is the ABR affected by the construction as well? Is Yal ku within walking distance from ABR?

Hope you are having a nice time in that beautiful location.

see my other thread on the construction

Yal-Ku is about 3 km from ABR

2 km from Akumal arches

Have you read about my famous golf cart tour?

We're considering HAC in February. Any word on how far along the construction on Secrets will be?

Thanks, VSD

I understand that ABR is also doing renovations and some of its buildings were torn down for the new Secrets.

If we book with them, do you possibly know which of its buildings would be renovated by February and also away from the construction.

I notice their 2015 rates are not listed yet.

Thanks again.

For ABR's renovations, there is a much longer thread a page down or top questions

They have just torn down 2 old bldgs. (3& 4) where a new ABR building is being built

Bldg 7 is being renoted now (bldg. 6 renos start in Sept so both should be ready in Feb

Apple and Sunwing have prices (look for the Wellness resort)
