Stayed at the GBP Akumal from 16 June - 30 June 2008. My partner and I flew Thomas Cook from Manchester and didn't know which of the hotels we would be staying in until we arrived in Cancun. When we arrived we were told by our transfer rep that we would be staying in the Akumal hotel along with all... More

Overall, this hotel was great. The people were very friendly, the resort was huge (pools seemed endless), we were right on the beach - and most of all - it was clean clean clean! I did not notice one dirty area in the entire resort, and our rooms were always spotless. Back to the pools – they are massive and... More

We stayed in the Gran Bahia Principe Akumal from June 21-June 28 and found it to be an excellent experience. I traveled with my wife (30), both sets of our parents (50s and 60s), and my sister (27) from various points in the USA. I thought that the strengths of the hotel included its food (both buffets and a la... More

Firstly I must start off by saying that if you are planning to go to this complex then don’t be put off by any of the negative reviews that are on this website. It really annoyed me to read that a person said they would rather shut their fingers in a draw than stay here again, all I can say... More

Our family of 5 (kids 13, 15, and 17) stayed for 8 days. We had a blast. Staff were excellent, helpful, and friendly. For variety at meal time, I recommend going to the Kukulcan restaurant at Coba (another hotel in the resort). Overall, the food at Coba was better, we thought. To save yourself some money, take advantage of the... More

I relied heavily on the previous reviews here and was not steered wrong. Great property with great service. My boyfriend and I went for 6 days. We're in our mid-30's. Some points... -I think it's key to note that a 5-star All Inclusive does not equate to a typical 5-star hotel. I think we got an excellent value for the... More

The food was average, the service very poor. Most pool/beach bars closed earlier than scheduled time. Bartenders were unfriendly. One refused water to a guest because he was closing. Resort so huge trams were necessary to get anywhere. Would not recommend hotel, but Akumal is a great location to visit.
