I enjoyed this holiday there were only a few minor hiccups. When we arrived there was no soap reported it at reception and within 15 minutes it was there. Fast response. During the last few days we did not have towels replaced and the mini bar was not restocked. We went around all the hotels and Tulium had the largest... More

Stayed here late March early April for 14 days. Holiday was arranged through Thomson UK and was well priced. Flew out from Gatwick and came back from Cancun on the Dreamliner. A very comfortable plane with a good amount of leg room. Immigration Control in Cancun was chaotic with a number of flights arriving together. Transfer to the hotel was... More

First impressions were amazing: Lobby's for all 3 bahia resorts are impressive. Room's are neat, tidy and spacious, but simple and pretty dated. Facilities and food are superb, I don't think we spent two consecutive days doing the same thing or dining in the same area as we could use all three resorts. Mexican night won't blow you say, but...

Full disclosure, I had a poor experience while on vacation that had NOTHING to do with the resort or the area. So, it may be colouring my review, but I hope not. We stayed as a wedding group at the Akumal. The resort is beautiful. The Akumal seemed smaller than the Tulum and Coba, but I didn't spend much time... More

We had a great time in Grand Bahia Principe. We stayed in Akumal, in a room near Akumal lobby, but enjoyed all the complex: Coba, Tulum and Hacienda Dona Isabel. The staff is really friendly and made us feel really welcome! Loved it!

We had a great time on our first all inclusive holiday experience. Very well run with Enthusiastic friendly staff. Excellent choice of entertainment and restaurants. The resort was enhanced by having 3 centres supplying a variety of experiences. Akumal was close to beach. Coba had kids club and nice vibe for evening entertainment. Tulum had the dolphin experience. If you... More
