I had to pay 700 Pesos for a safe key which was showed an element of stinginess. I was aware that this hotel was on... More

We visited the Grand Bahia Principe Akumal from 30th August to 13th September. There aren't enough superlatives to describe this wonderful place. We had the best holiday ever! My husband and I were there to celebrate our 25th anniversary and my sister and brother in law were there to celebrate their 30th anniversary and we did so in style. They... More

Just home after 2 weeks at Golden Akumal, we are well travelled but have never experienced such friendly, happy staff as we did at Gran Bahia. Don't have any negatives, food was good especially at Arlequin, buffets were good but it was nice to visit the restaurants for a change, they were also cooler! The only downside of the trip... More

I always research hotels on here before booking and have never found the need to comment as most reviews are pretty accurate and I also accept that some things do not please everyone. This time however, I felt the need to comment. I began by thinking that I was expecting too much from the hotel but whilst we were out... More

We had such a great time, beach was wonderful. It was great being able to use the facilities of the 3 hotels and getting to them was so easy due to the little trains that run back and forth continuously. The staff on site are so friendly and cannot do enough to help. Easy to travel into Playa del Carmen... More

Returned from GBP Akumal on Sept 3rd after two weeks with 2 adults and 2 girls aged 12 and 10. The reviews on TA are in the main really accurate and you can pretty well book your next holiday on the strength of them. We thought we'd put our thoughts in on some of the things others havent previously commented... More
