This huge resort was very overwhelming the day we arrived, we couldn't find the beach for the beach party the first night lol. However we quickly found our way around and found little shortcuts. The resort is amazing and beautiful full of nature and trails to explore, it's grand size became a blessing because you never grew bored and it also gave you the opportunity to walk off some of the fantastic food. The best part of our trip was defiantly the service, the staff went above and beyond on every level and the maid service was impeccable. On the first morning we left a tip on the night stand and midday stopped by to grab something, the maid was in the room across the hall and ran over to make sure that it was meant for her. My 5 yr old bought a wooden alligator from the market and left it in the room and the maid made a huge alligator out of towels and put the wooden one on top, just details like that. We ate at the Brazilain and Japanese, both I highly recommend. We also ate at the steakhouse which was good. I left my son at the kids club and he was fine and had fun( he is shy and I am paranoid) so it was hard but the staff make sure they have your info and give u a rundown of the activities they do. The resort also has mini club activities at 8:30pm each night at the theatre on the stage which my son LOVED, then an icebreaker at 9pm and the big show at 9:30. The performers were fantastic , especially considering that they are same staff that does pool games, kids club, ice breaker and mini club, they are there all day, and always with fun and uplifting attitudes. Shout outs to Supermario, Alfedo, Jamie, Cali at swim up bar #3 and Rudouf and the lady who runs kids club and mini club... It was all of you who made our trip!!!! Please tip... They really deserve it.
Great resort with AMAZING staff!

My wife and I just returned from our 10 night stay at the Grand Sirenis. We had a wonderful time staying at this resort. We purchased an upgraded ocean view room upon arrival which was definitely worth the $433 USD for 10 nights. The rooms are nice and very clean, nothing spectacular or trendy. The mini fridge comes with soda, water, beer, and is replenished daily. The room had a king bed, sofa, and desk area, a few shelves for luggage (no dresser) and the bathroom has a walk in shower, Jacuzzi tub, and vanity with bowl sink. TV has 29 channels with about 3-4 English speaking channels. Wi-fi is available for a fee (several options available) but for just checking email you can get 15 min for about $2. The A/C keeps the room nice and cool and there is a fan as well. The bed is not great (very firm) and the pillows are pretty small. Each building has a concierge and in our building (24 Ikaban), Arlina was fantastic and super helpful in everything we needed. I would recommend booking your a la carte restaurants with your building concierge as soon as you get to your room. There are also a few small shops within the main lobby that carry essential items you may need: snacks, a variety of OTC medicines, sunscreens, swimsuits, clothes, water shoes, alcohol, playing cards, souvenirs, etc.
The resort is very large and spread out so be prepared to do some walking. There are also golf carts that will shuttle you around to the beach, pool, lobby, etc. We didn't mind the walking so much as it keeps you from feeling bloated and nasty from drinking and eating all day. Each "room block" has its own large pool with a swim up bar, cafe restaurant for lunch, a snack bar with burgers and hot dogs, and children's activities. These pools are where most of the daily activities and games happen and are pretty noisy areas. There is a large quiet pool that is in the center of the resort close to the beach which is great and very relaxing. The relaxing pool is about 100 yards from the start of the beach area and also the beach bar, hammocks, and beach grill (lunch food: burgers, hot dogs, fish, sausage, ham). The beach area is fairly large and has plenty of chairs, umbrellas, and views.
The food here is average. Some decent stuff, some not so much. I think we actually lost a few pounds from all the walking and not eating a whole bunch. Please don't avoid the Grand Sirenis because of this because you won't go hungry by any means, but if you like gourmet food or are a gastro you may want to look elsewhere. The largest buffet restaurant is in the lobby and has limited hours. They serve breakfast from around 7-10, and then they open again for dinner at 6 until about 10. They don't serve lunch there, so head to one of the beach snack-bars or side-restaurants near the party pools for the limited lunch spread. The a la carte restaurants are pretty decent but you only get a few of these depending on the length of your stay, and they're only for dinner. We had four a la carte dinners including the romantic dinner on the beach, the Steakhouse, the Japanese Steakhouse and the Brazilian restaurant. We enjoyed the Japanese and Steakhouse the best. Get the filet mignon- it was delicious! If you are lucky enough to get Juan Carlos as your waiter, enjoy him. He was our FAVORITE! The drinks are decent, no top shelf booze but definitely not well liquor drinks. I had mojitos, corona, and frozen drinks that were all great.
The staff at the Grand Sirenis might as well be working at a 5 or 6 star resort. They are all FANTASTIC, super friendly, and incredibly hard workers. The staff here absolutely without a doubt made our trip memorable. They are professional and friendly and truly go out of their way to make you feel welcome and taken care of. We really miss them already : ( (Bonus tip: If you'd like to leave something other than cash for the cleaning staff, bring along some kids toys or new cosmetic items. You must leave a small note with these items for the staff to be able to accept.)
By sitting through the time-share presentation, we scored a free couples 'treatment' at the spa on site at the Sirenis. The certificate entitled us to access their hydrotherapy pools and a 25 minute couples massage. It is a beautiful facility with coffee shop, juicebar, and cafe on site. The treatment we were offered included access to their four hydrotherapy pools, each of which has multiple jet therapy units that focus on different parts of the body. The water is not terribly warm, but overall it was relaxing. We upgraded the massage portion of our certificate for an additional $65 USD to extend the massage from 25 minutes to 50. It was worth every penny. Our masseuses, Gero and Ofelia were awesome. We were also allowed to soak in the different saunas and steam rooms afterward for as long as we liked.
The beach is very rough on your feet with coral, rocks, sea shells, etc so I would absolutely recommend wearing some sort of footwear. If you have kids absolutely get them water shoes if they want to play on the beach and in the water as I can almost guarantee they will cut their feet open without them at some point. (There is a medic that walks the beach that will patch you up for free if you need him.) There is plenty to see if you want to snorkel right off the hotel beach. If the surf picks up, the visibility gets pretty poor, but on calm days you can see turtles and plenty of fish. There are urchins scattered through the entire area so if you or your kids are snorkeling keep from stepping on the rocks or getting too close that the surf can push you into them. There were about 5 days out of the 11 days we were there that the water was calm enough to snorkel at the resort. If you are staying during sea-weed season, the resort does an amazing job of keeping the beaches clean to the best of their ability. They have several men with nets that clear it out as much as possible. These guys work SO HARD, so I'd encourage bringing down a tip for them too.
The dive shop at the resort (on the far side of the beach) Aqua Excursions is great. The guys who run the shop, Mizrahim and Danny, are awesome and very helpful. We took a trip with them to Cozumel for two dives, a snorkel session, hot lunch, and round trip transportation from the hotel for $190 each. The diving in Akumal by the resort is fair at best. Absolutely do yourself a favor and go to Cozumel for the day. The diving in Cozumel is just about the best in the world next to Australia, and is definitely worth the extra money and travel time.
If you want to snorkel with sea turtles, take a cab or the "Collectivo" bus to the town of Akumal Bay. If you take the bus, you'll save a few dollars, but the amount of walking to and from the beach will greatly increase. Once in Akumal, you can rent snorkel equipment at a variety of vendors right by the beach. We brought our own gear, but you are required to wear a life jacket to snorkel past a certain point on the bay. We went to Akumal Dive Center right on the beach and for $10 rented two life jackets which included use of a locker for the day. I highly recommend renting a locker in Akumal if you plan on getting in the water because the beach is very busy and you want to keep your belongings safe. We snorkeled in the bay for about 30 min and saw roughly 20+ sea turtles. They are very comfortable around humans and its quite a fun experience and awesome if you have a GoPro. The swimming area can get really crowded, but I would almost guarantee you will see sea turtles here if you make the trip. Stop and get ice cream at Lucy's for a delicious treat.
In summary, the Grand Sirenis is a great resort for couples and families alike. There are plenty of things to keep you busy and also plenty of room to get some quiet relaxation.

Second time to this resort and it was better than last time, the staff was amazing Diego, Ivanue and Eduardo (bartenders) took care of us at pool #1 the whole two weeks, really cool people and of course the entertainment staff was superb, Super Mario and Super Chema made it extremely enjoyable, tequila volleyball is a must. The food is incredible and the a la carte restaurants are even better, Brazilian is a must but book as soon as you get there. With Dolphins, cenotes and snorkling on site you'll find everything you need right there weather you are relaxing or just having fun, this is my getaway.

Overall beautiful resort with amazing service. We will absolutely be returning. We loved it. Here are my notes;
Concierge: Alan and Aralina were super helpful and nice. Very concerned with our happiness
Vip lounge concierges were helpful as well.
Miguel was awesome at the main buffet in morning/lunch. Others were good but no Miguel.
Spa was incredible. Lots of services and staff. Hydrotherapy circuit very good. Daily access to members. Adriana and Diana were our favorites at the spa. We had 2 days of spa treatments and they were amazing. We had the ultimate package with included: flotarium, chocolate body scrub, hydrotherapy tub, chocolate body wrap, scalp massage and light therapy. Next time we did the hydrotherapy circuit with massages and aloe Vera facials. Locker facilities with showers. Whole series of steam rooms, saunas and showers as part and ft hydrotherapy too.
Buffets really good. Always Mexican choices. Lots of variety. Tasted great.
Ice cream bar awesome
Cajun really really good
Mexican really good
Club: access to shuttles and vip area. 24 hour room service. No limit on a la carte. Members only section nears pools but no shade unless you want a Bali bed. All of the loungers in vip were in direct sunlight. We were told about the members only beach party but then told it was not open to new members. Bracelets were uncomfortable. Should have been nicer for club at least.
Non members beds were lumpy. Rooms were very clean and nice otherwise. Checked out the beds I'm the member rooms. They were much more comfortable.
Lots of animals. It was interesting at 6 pm. There was a Daily 6 pm raid of garbage containers by a pack of at least 20 creatures. It was very entertaining.
Lazy river was fast. It would carry you along even if you were sitting on the bottom of the pool. Inner tubes were not quite big enough and a struggle to get on even for the skinny people.
Beach is beautiful but super rocky in the water. Water shoes are a must.
Pools are big. 3 main pools. 1 relaxing pool which is pretty quiet. One main activity pool on the maya side. We didn't visit the riviera pool. We only figured out where it was on our way out.
Suggestions for improvement:
Activities board on the maya side
