Here's What we Liked: A bowl of fruit in your room greets you on arrival. The room is supplied with two 1.5 L bottled water which is replenished daily. Mini bar in room has soft drinks, a couple cans of beer and some nips of liquor, replenished daily. Room service is also included. Restaurant choices are endless. Download the app... More

We stayed here for 1 week, arriving on the 29th December 2014 and departing 4th January 2015 after completing 1 week of the yucatan explorer tour provided by Thomson. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly reception staff with a welcome drink. The resort itself is lovely, bars, restaurants and pool area very clean and plenty. Did not feel crowded... More

We are going to be staying may 11 to 18th. We are in the Jr suite. What rooms would u suggest. We wanna be as close to beach ad possible and semi close to amenities. We are a young couple so don't mind a walk. But I'm somewhat a light sleeper.

Stayed at the GBP Akumal from 8 - 18th Feb. The weather was sometimes a little cloudy and breezy but we were lucky and it didn't rain at all with temperatures around 26 degrees. It did get a little cool some evenings but I was fine in short sleeves the whole time. Our emailed request for a certain floor and... More

My fiancé and I were here in October of 2013 and had the most amazing trip ever! Our room was on the ground floor facing the ocean with our small private beach and bar. I could jump over the railing on to the beach hassle free! The food, people and overall friendliness of everyone made our stay memorable! We're looking... More

We spent a week in January at the newly branded Luxury Bahia Principe Akumal. It was a fantastic trip. The food was great as was the service. Maybe not quite as upscale and attentive as the Sian Kaan section but good nonetheless. Lots of chairs at the pool and beach as well as many shade umbrellas and structures. Not my... More

Stayed here back in 2014. Paid the extra to have the upgraded rooms. So glad we chose to stay at the Akumal section instead of the other connected resorts. In my opinion it was closest to the beach. Our room was close to the beach, buffet and 2 pools. Very convenient. Food is good everywhere, buffets have some variety and... More

Fantastic resort, amazing food, this is the first place we have ever been to where you can get a sun bed no matter what time of day you get to the pool. The staff were so happy and friendly, especially at the activity pool. Loved the iguanas and other animals that roam freely. The ONLY negative is that Dolphins should... More

This resort has it all:beaches, golf, great staff. The only thing which could be improved is the food at the buffet. It is well presented and there is a large selection but it is not really very tasty.Smoked salmon is so salty that it is uneatable,the only desert worth eating are the fresh fruits. The restaurants on site are much... More

The staff was very helpfull and very serviceminded. All the way from our welcome in the reception to our goodbye to the bellboys was perfect. BUT the beach was NOT the best We have seen. Too low water, too little areas cleaned up for seaweed. The pools were also overall very lowwatered.(1,35 meter).
