    The Staff are Amazing

    We are here for our third visit and remain beyond impressed. The location is world class. The food is excellent. The resort is kept up very well. All of these are expected and appreciated. The thing that makes the place sparkle is the people. The staff are superb. Special thanks to the following staffers: Florentina is a host in the Premier Lobby. Go there for a pre dinner beverage and say hi. What a great person. Francisca, Maria and Olivia are hosts in the main corner of the Akumal buffet. Spectacular teamwork (Maria and Francisca are sisters). Their section is always can guess the reasons. Jorge works in the 24 hour restaurant in Tulum. Amazingly kind and cool guy. He remembered us from last year as if we never left. Morgan and Adrian are Privilege Club Concierge/Hosts in Tulum. First rate. We are not staying there but popped by and they both instantly remembered us and we got a hug. David is our current Privilege Concierge at Coba...and is also a fine person and helpful soul. Thank you David. You work too hard...but it is appreciated! All of the restaurant staff and cart drivers are amazing. I wish I had time to thank them all...but Pablo at Maiko, Filberto and Adrian at Arlequin... are special folk. Victor at Gran Tortuga was terrific. Finally, we appreciate the Management and Human Resources Department for creating and maintaining this culture. We like it so much we bought into the Privilege Club...and are very happy. Thanks to all of you.

    Wow amazing

    Where to start what an amazing place! It has everything we want and needed for our family holiday 9 days of fun sun food and the occasional bellyflop into the pool. The staff are great polite and helpful and very entertaining around the pool (hector) the food is brilliant so much choice. And the wildlife just wow from the iguanas to the crafty raccoons sneaking around hours of fun to watch as you sit by the pool. Can’t rate this hotel high enough will definitely be returning time and time again

    Very Helpful Employee!!

    We originally were checking into the Coba, but upgraded over to the Akumal. This review is for the extremely helpful and patient Yaneth (Janet). Upon check in we, requested an a different hotel, preferably Akumal. It was difficult to discern what the benefits to the additional money would get us, so my travel partner requested to look at the rooms in Coba and Akumal. After the first few steps in the heat and my travel clothes, I was ready to hand over the money, not my companion. Yaneth was awesome. She said no worries to walking us around, taking us to each area to check out the rooms. Listening to us babble back and forth. We ultimately decided on the Akumal - in a different room then what she showed us. If Yaneth had a hand in the building/room we got, she did well. We were very happy with the location. Coba is lucky they have Yaneth and we were lucky to have met her!
