"The Akumal" was by far the best situated hotel out of the 3 on the complex, set right on the beach which is lovely , the sea is crystal clear with lots of colorful fish. Snorkelling is brilliant but the fish can be seen from the sea edge and from the jetty. ( Dont forget your underwater camera!). Our room... More

We stayed at the Bahia Principe Coba and Akumal in two separate stays either side of a Thomas Cook Yucatan tour in June 2010. Overall the hotel offers good value and we would echo the thoughts of most other reviewers, the hotel is certainly immaculately presented and the service and staff are generally excellent. The hotel is huge, but certainly... More

Stayed 1st 2 weeks in June and had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday. As previously stated the resort is massive, made up of 3 hotels. We stayed at Akumal and thought this was the the best place to stay. Tulum, being the oldest, is looking a little tired and in need of a touch up here and there. Coba, the newest... More

Before i talk about this amazing hotel, i just want to prepare you travelers for the airport when you arrive!! Its a nightmare! Be prepared for a lot of queuing, and after a 10 hour flight its not what you want. They use this red / green light signal thing, where you have to que up with your suitcase and... More

I got a chance to visit the Gran Bahia Principe Akumal from June 20-June 27 and had a wonderful time there. The resort was beautifully kept, and the staff were extremely friendly. I stayed in the Golden Royal area and a week before my visit I requested Villa 66-second floor as that was recommended on this site. Also, we requested... More

Just back from a fantastic fortnight at this beautiful hotel - cannot fault anything apart from a hurricane called Alex but only for a couple of days and didn't spoil our fun. The people were so lovely - everyone from gardeners, bellboys, cleaners to entertainment team - made our holiday - all of them. The complex is very big but... More

We had a great tie at Bahia Principe. The room was really spacious and clean. The hotel is situated on an endless area along the beach, the hotel's beach is 1-1,5 k or so- it was clearly one of the largest hotels we ever stayed. The good thing is that you live in individual villas (each had 10-15 apartments or... More

I have recently returned from Gran Bahia Principe Coba. This was my second visit to the resort although last time we stayed at the Akumal site last year. We really enjoyed our time here and would definitely come back. The resort is quite a trek from the airport, but if you book a private transfer you will arrive within 45-60... More

We just returned from our 8 day trip to the Bahia Principe Akumal. We traveled with 10 people (2 families). As I had suspected based on other reviews the resort was "huge". Too big if you ask me. After reading the previous reviews I knew there were going to be trams that took you around the resort I just had... More
