Sorry families, the Beloved Playa Mujeres is scheduled to become an adults-only resort come Sept. 1, 2016. The resort is planning on adding more features and amenities geared towards an adults-only group of vacationers, but this info. is yet to come.
Vacationers thinking of visiting Akumal, either to swim with the turtles for the day or those staying in villas or condos in this vicinity, may want to delay or cancel their trips until the situation settles down. Last night on the 29th what started out as a peaceful gathering turned violent as molotov cocktails, rocks, and God knows what else were hurled at police, protesters, and bystanders with several burned vehicles and a burned police station. There are reports of missing protesters, but so far those are rumors and have not been officially verified. These kinds of situations should not affect the AI resorts of Secrets or its neighbor, ABBWR, but guests staying here should not venture to the north of their resorts at this time. Check out this video–such a sad situation.
While half of this video is computer generated, it gives a good impression of what some of the public spaces are like. The actual room footage I love, the shower situation reminds me of Secrets the Vine without the frosted glass. Definitely a resort for couples. Take a look!
For those of you planning on visiting Akumal Bay on Sunday, May 29, 2016, there is supposed to be a protest from 5-9 p.m. entailing marching through the arch and dismantling the security fence. This may not remain a peaceful protest, so it’s best to visit this area another day.
If you’re looking for information regarding Oasis Tulum and can’t find it so easily anymore, don’t think you are losing your mind or that you’ve just imagined there was an Oasis Tulum–the parent company has decided to merge the Oasis Tulum and the Grand Oasis Tulum into one resort for a more effortless resort experience. The entire property is now called Grand Oasis Tulum (instead of it just being an upgraded section within Oasis Tulum). The new upgraded section within the resort is called Sian Ka’an and offers several perks, while the Casa Club still remains halfway between the main road and the lobby turnoffs.
