Overall this property is very nice. There are 3 hotels that are part of the same resort and there is great trams to get around. The grounds are beautiful but the food is ok, and the service wasn't the greatest. The beach at the Akumal is not great, but you can go to the Talum side where the beach is... More

We have been to Grand Bahia Principe two times (2006 and 2008) both in Feb/March for two weeks. It was fantastic. Great Food, Great Service, can't say enough about it. We picked Akumal as it is right on the ocean, whereas other resorts in this complex you have to shuttle to the beach. The first time we stayed in complex... More

First of all I have had a horrible experience with Travelocity so if you are thinking about booking with them....Don't. I have always used Cheapcaribbean and should have stayed with the. The ride to the hotel from the airport is long. But it was worth it. And time flew by because we were looking at everything. The Hotel was beautiful!!!... More

We stayed here for our honeymoon and choose the Bahia as we had stayed in one in Tenerife and thought it was excellent. We had a fantastic time, the food was lovely, the hotel was always clean and the private beach was great. The entertainment in the evenings was also excellent. We would recommend this hotel for anyone who wants... More

My husband & I went from Oct.19-26/08. Our purpose was to have a relaxing time and this was the first time travelling without the kids. We have been the the Mayan Riviera about 6 other times and didn't want to sightsee this time; just stay at an upscale resort and 'chill'. WOW! It was awesome and filled our needs perfectly.... More

This is a nice hotel; me and my girlfriend ventured here as we wanted to see the ruins of the Maya Rivera. Facilities of the hotel were great, food was so so typical quality of Mexico (did not get sick but got bored of the bland flavour), beach was different (because the water is rough they have large bean bags...

22 of us left Toronto on October 12th for a week of sun and fun, as well as the wedding of my brother. Some of us had never been to Mexico so didn't quite know what to expect....well, it was fabulous. The drive from the airport (Cancun) can be quite long as we're one of the last resorts (about 90...
