Comments The small hotels are by far better than the larger mega Las Vegas style hotels. The service the food and the over all experience is better at the the smaller hotels.We were going to stay at the Grand Sirenis but the staff was so rude and tried to Jack up there rates taking advantage of our being tourist. We were not going to be riped off and took our business to the Akumal Caribe. The staff was the best,the food,the service,top rated. They saved our trip and I would never go anywere else.The dive shop is on the resort and the dive masters are tops.I would go back to Akumal and the Akumal Caribe.There is a lot to do on the Riviera Maya.
