We returned home on the 12th October after a 2 week holiday. The hotel is lovely with beautiful grounds to wander around. We enjoyed seeing coatis and iguanas on the ground and turkey vultures and Pelicans in the sky. The resort is huge, but easy to get around on the wee trains. Our room was in block 48 with a... More

This was my sixth stay at an all inclusive resort and probably my last. However, it is mostly because I choose not to go on tours and eat at buffets. It may be great for newbie travellers that want to feel safe.This resort is massive and takes about ten minutes to drive in from the highway. Its the largest chain... More

Huge complex of 3 hotels gives plenty of choice of beaches, pools and eating and drinking areas. Rooms very clean and well serviced but air con almost non-existent even after couple of mentions to service desk. Lots of refurbishment going on so should be better for 2015. Extra charge for in room safe seems cheeky at best especially on a... More

Returned yesterday (18th Oct) after previously visiting the same hotel in 2011. Just as remembered and beautifully presented nearest to the beach front with access to other hotels on site, Coba & Tulum. Spent more time travelling around the expanse of the resort this time and seeking out other restaurants. Mexican, Brazillian and Japanese all very nice but difficult to... More

Spent 7 days at the Bahia Principe Akumal resort from October 11-18, 2014. We upgraded to the Golden suites at booking for $80 more through Apple vacations. The advantage of the Golden upgrade is a room close to the beach, separate check-in, free room safe and 24 hour room service. (limited menu) This is really just a typical resort, this... More
