Restaurant openings vary daily. Check your IPad for daily advisements. The Mexican ( El Patio) is our least favorite which is sad because we love Mexican food. The food items are poorly done and it takes forever to finish a meal. We will be returning in May. We love any fresh seafood . Be sure to let us know what you think. We always reserve for the Hibachi table as soon as we arrive as they book up quickly.

If you love fresh seafood, definitely eat at Cueva del Pescador in Akumal, in May mahi mahi (dorado) should be in season along with grouper and others. The mini lobster they have is also good (kind of a langostino).

I believe Lobster season runs from July 1st to the last day of February.-

so lobster served until June is illegal.

We wondered how Secrets Akumal compared to Secrets Capri if anyone has stayed at both? Capri closed of course, and that was our favorite AO in the area - Great cuisine (easy to order off-menu too), drinks, and service. Can anyone share comparative experiences? For example, Secrets Huatulco is a nice property with a great staff, but we were very underwhelmed with the quality of the cuisine, and the lack of decent evening entertainment with the resort being so far from town..l

We stayed at secrets Maroma a few years ago and Secrets Akumal in February. We thought the food at Secrets Akumal was better than Maroma, but not as good as eating at a local restaurant. Lunch at Akumal was hit or miss depending on what special options they had each day ( like one day was all sorts of BBQ meats and next day was a carniceria taco bar). Dinner was overall, very good with the exception of the Italian.

We paid such a low rate on our last stay, that we at in Akumal 3 times.
