Brilliant, visited last April and we were very impressed with The Hotel and all of the A-La-Carte restaurants that we could visit in the complex. All of the staff were very very helpful, the pool area lovely and clean and the sea was perfect and clear. Rooms were lovely and kept to a high standard, hope to return soon.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were there for a family wedding, which was beautiful. The staff was very kind and helpful. When... More

Third time to Grand Bahia Akumal (Don Pablo). Excellent resort, peaceful beach on the Akumal side of the resort. Great service. Will likely go again in the future. Don't miss the private bay and beach (off the resort) to the south of the resort, great place for snorkel.

Those executing morning yoga, aqua gym, pool side Zumba & evening dancing were fantastic!! They work such long days but continue to be personable, energetic and encouraging even if you are un-coordinated. I felt like we had all been friends for a long time even though my time was short. Well deserving of every tip you can give! Extra appreciation... More

I stayed at this resort to attend a family wedding and didn't know what to expect since I'd never been to an all inclusive resort or even to Mexico before. I must say, except for a few minor glitches, the stay was great. First I'll mention the problems and get them over with. We arrived at 10:30 am and the... More

This is late in being reviewed Nov 2013 is when we actually went and would gladly go back that's how nice it was, we didn't have any problems getting a bed on the beach as it is a very long beach because it incorporates the coba and Tulum hotels too. We had a look around all three of the resorts... More

My partner stayed here from the 11th to the 15th of December. We found the service to be particularly excellent, we were assigned a butler whose name was Andrés and who was super helpful.

Thank you so much for this amazing getaway. The staff were very professional and accommodating. The Al a carte restaurants were like we were in a fantasy world. Thank you to William Lopez our butler who showed genuineness when greeting us. This may very well become a yearly vacation in the warm sun. Loved it!!
