GBP Akumal.....June 2015

Just booked June 2015 to GBP Akumal aware that there will be some changes (hopefully for the better) with the transfer to Don Pablo Luxury Collection. We have visited Mexico before staying in PDC at Riu Yucatan. Anyone who has been to GBP Akumal have any tips? From forum posts we gather villas 65,66 and 67 are the better located for beach etc.

We have been to Xcarat and Xel-ha and intend to visit again and like the idea of Tulum and Akumal beaches for a visit. Tips and insights very welcome. Thanks.

Not sure on your side of the pond but the tour operator in Canada that sells GBP Akumal is now selling those buildings as ocean view and at a bit higher price. If you are able to get into one of those buildings there is a beach bar right in front of them and the 24 hour snackbar is very near
