Just returned from a two week stay with a party of 10. This is my second time of visiting Gran Bahia Akumal. Can I just say everything was just as perfect the second time round, if not better! The grounds themselves are immaculate and I swear you could eat your tea off every surface, even round the pool!!! The rooms... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week for our friends wedding. The resort was less than stellar for the price we paid. The A/C didn't work in the room and neither did our fridge. Nothing was done to fix them. The room smelled moldy. The rooms were far from the resort pool/lobby area. The buffet food wasn't very... More
