Susy those were my thoughts too when I saw that shiny tile. I have seen how wet the tile walkways get when it pours.

We had a penthouse on Isla  at PA. - same thing - no hand rails
 
But an easy to add safety feature along with a door sill for the top

"I defer comment ... however, so much stone makes for boxed-in space; where's the view? "
 
Kind of a give and take with that.  We had a penthouse at Bahia Siaan Ka'an which had an open concept and since it is in the middle of the jungle we had a excellent view of the trees and all the other penthouses around us.  They tried to mitigate the lack of privacy by hanging towels between the rooms but it was marginally successful at best.  Still loved the room though.  These ABR penthouses would be awesome if you could get drink service during the day.  No towel games!

Yes, both
 
If you check the video, you will see 2 chairs and a table on the balcony

Meh - not loving the rooftop.  Reminds me of the penthouse we had at Ixchel on Isla Mujeres - sterile and boring.  Thought it would be awesome but hardly used it.

Maybe a couple of potted plants to break it up.

Has anyone seen this. They are messing with the turtles. This a link to a petition that is going around to protect them.
https://secure.avaaz.org/en/petition/Akumal_Beach_Resort_aka_Akumal_Bay_Resort_Spa_in_Akumal_Mexico_Remove_the_palapas_that_were_recently_built_on_turtle_nes/?dcomXib&pv=3
 
What is everyone's opinion?

I think the petition was started out of love and concern for the turtles, but CEA released a statement that essentially said, thank you for your concern, but the palapas are temporary structures, and will be removed during turtle nesting season.  
Here is the FB link to the statement  https://www.facebook.com/notes/centro-ecologico-akumal-cea/in-response-to-inquiries-regarding-a-semarnat-document/794198503950627?fref=nf 
 
People might still think they are ugly, though.  Personally, I just hope to get some shade.

Hi, we are back from your holidays at ABR.
 
We love the hotel and the peoples there. Very good service. BUT..... the construction noises  - so loud - nothing to relax.
 
We stayed at Building 3 and in the morning at 7.20 it starts with very loud hammering and construction noises.
I can not unterstand, that they give you a room directly under rooms with so loud noises. If you could stay at the beach - it is o.k. but if the weather is not so fine - you have no chance to stay in the room. NO CHANCE! 
 
I think they need about  8 weeks to end the work there. The hotel and the beach is great. 
I can not understand, that they play with our holidays... they know it is very loud - but they give you the loud room.
If you want to chance the room - you have to wait until the next day... 
 
Without construction noises - I can recomment the ABR from the deep of my heard.

This arrived outside of building 3, a couple of days ago. Also, they are opening up the elevator shaft.

Does anyone know which buildings have the least amount of construction noise going on around them?

Bodenseefisch,
 
That is too bad.  They should have done something to make it up to you.

crunch,
 
thanks:-) We got a massage for free - that was fine, but the construction noises were really bad.
I think building 4 is at  first ready - the buildings 1 are closed to the new secret hotel and you have there construction noises from ABR and the secret hotel - that's not fine. 
 
I hope they are soon ready with the construction - the hotel end the peoples there are very friendly and the service was fine.
 
The beach there is so beautiful. :-)

I was hoping someone else would ask.....because I don't want to sound stupid.
 
What is that?
