GBP. Akumel v Tulum

Hi what are the differences. I know Akumel is classed as luxury but is it much better, what do you get extra. Does anyone know the cost to upgrade for two weeks have booked Tulum section so would it be worth it or not. Thanks

Akumal section is better as you get access to all 4 resorts and restaurants.

Booze is better and it's better service 👌🏽

Have a read of the Top Questions section on the right hand side ------------->

"GBP Tips, section differences, Buffets and a-la-Cartes, Internet, repeat perks" is the one you will need.

You will need to be using the Desk Top site to see them though.

Akumal you get Premium Top Shelf Drinks, waitered service at the Pools & Beach, Unlimited use of the restaurants, use of all the other Hotel Pools & facilities (Coba, Tulum, Sian Kaan), Butler, Free Safe, Free Wifi to name a few of the benefits.

Our 1st visit to Mexico in 2 weeks & it was the Tulum Hotel that grabbed out attention and was going to book it when found the Akumal was only £200 more for 3 of us so made sense!

Oh My , go to Sian Kaan for 2 weeks and enjoy the BEST of all for less . SK is # 1 , Akumel #2 , Coba #3 , and Tulum not to be compared , under construction / old / poor service . Check Prices !

Well worth the cost to upgrade, many extras, plus it’s beach front, sea breeze, 24 hour room service, free digital safe, butler service, resort wide WiFi ( over all 4 hotels), premium alcohol, beach and pool waiter service, unlimited a la cartes, free mini bar including 3 miniature spirits, beer, assorted sodas, water and chips daily. Tulum is beachfront but that is where comparison ends. Upgrade......you will not regret it.

Hi moll

I'd email ahead to find out prices, and then enquire again on arrival.

Enjoy your holiday ☀
