Does anyone have any real Answers on what's going on with bldng 5? Is it under renos or what? Like said earlier, booked for end of October. Was hoping for a great vacay with no surprises, just another great holiday at ABR.

Insight from people there or from people in the know.

Thanks

Last year we had a few nights when it was full because a Brazilian bowling team was there for a tournament. I had visions of feathers and sequins but it turned out to be a lot of average looking middle aged folks in bowling shirts, but they were pretty good dancers.

Just booked for a week starting Nov 30. Haven't been there since 2008 and we were hoping for it to be somewhat quieter at this time of year as we used to go in February. Also Building 5 is our favorite one so really would like to get any info on what's going on, if anything.

Only 5 minutes from ABR / Akumal  - sure - what a pain

Pack up, get a tram to the hwy, wait for a colectivo or taxi /  pay, find a place on the beach

1 HOUR LATER - I get to snorkel



And the worst part is packing up to head back to your mega resort at the end of the day. [:@]
I only made that mistake once! [;)][:D]

Cheers,

One year (son's wedding) we stayed at another resort

Only 5 minutes from ABR / Akumal - sure - what a pain

Pack up, get a tram to the hwy, wait for a colectivo or taxi / pay, find a place on the beach


That was such a fun wedding and we are still grateful for the experience. Probably the only Canada/Poland wedding I'll ever have seen in my life.[:D]

But, wow, visiting that mega resort was rather eye-opening. That place is so huge it probably has its own zip code.[:D]

Free yourself from the bracelet.


What a great way of putting it, Solman. A whole ad campaign popped into my head with that one! As much as I don't want to give up on ABR because it really suits me as a solo traveller, when the resort/condo/whatever opens up next door, things will be a little different. And until then it's construction....

were staying at ABR 11-9 to 11-15, its coming fast! When I called they didn't say anything about building 5 being closed or an over abundance of people being there that week however with more than one building missing I imagine they book up fast. Glad you got the dates rearranged and are able to go back



Any day on the beach is a GREAT day!!!!

Being 'full' when they've shut down buildings 1 though 5 is totally different than when they were full with all buildings occupied, as it was the first t and 2nd time we went. It was still run by Venta back then and it was pretty busy with Europeans. It's all good!
