This is a gem for divers.
Carretera Cancun-Tulum Km 104, Akumal, QROO, México
NileGuide Expert tip:
For couples, ask for upper-floor, corner units closest to beach.
This hotel is one of three full-service hotels in Akumal. It has moderate (and low-cost options) pricing for the area, an on-site dive center, a kids game room, a small spa, two restaurants, a taco stand, a bar, and a cafe. Atmosphere is very casual, but service is first class. This is probably the number one reason that families and couples return each year. Internet and American breakfast is included in its rates.
The hotel has a beach palapa and bar (with televisions for watching sports or events), a pizzeria that offers takeout, a taqueria that has traditional Mexican tacos, and a restaurant for fine dining. Among other events, such as weddings and parties, beach-side romantic dinners can also be arranged. Restaurants have an extensive bar and wine list (the Mexican wines from Monte Xanic are pleasantly surprising) and Wednesdays and Thursdays include live music and/or dance.
