Akumal or Coba?

I have read about the 3 resorts for Grand Bahia Principe. I love being close to the ocean - so would Akumal be the best? Is it worth it to pay extra for the golden club? Thank you!

Akumal is on the beach, I have stayed in akumal three times as I preferre the atmosphere there. Coba has water park section for young kids and was very packed when I was there last two weeks. For me Akumal has it all, beaches, pools etc, but to be honest wherever you chose you can use the facilities of the three resorts, Akumal, coba and tulu. Also you have the haciander for the shops, market and open air entertainment and night club. Wish I was still there xxx

We thought Club Golden was worth it the two times we stayed in Coba. Good room locations, private check in and out, private lobby. We'd book it again. We would also like to try the Akumal and Tulum sections, though had no problem getting to those sections from Coba.
