WE had the time of our lives. We were at the Bahia April 20th to May 3rd, 2008. We went to get married. We had 70 people in our group and not one person complained. Of course there were some minor glitches - checking in late - but you're on vacation - WHO CARES! HAve one more drink, relax and... More

I traveled down to Cancun via Air Transat, won't be going with them again if i can help it. Got into Gran Bahia Principe Akumal (GBPA) hotel about 1 AM on a Sat. morning. This review is reflective entirely on the bed unfortunately. Until this hotel changes the type and feel of the bed, I would never recommend this place... More

It was our first time visiting an all-inclusive resort, loved it. Beautiful hotel and large resort with all three hotels on the same site I felt like we were the only people there, not busy when we went. Found a beach/pool chair everyday. Food at Coba was the best. The beds are very hard and uncomfortable. Be careful of the... More

We had booked a week in the Riviera with a local travel agent and stayed at the Gran Bahia Principe Akumal from May 16-23 2008. Flying out of Calgary, Alberta I am 6'1", 230 lbs so we did reserve a emergency exit seat, both ways. If it wasn’t for paying an additional $120, I would’ve been very uncomfortable. Air Transat...

Lots of fun. Very big resort with a number of pools, a variety of a la cartes restaurants, incredible staff and a pretty beach. I will be going back!

What can I say...this was our 4th stay at an 'All Inclusive' resort and it was the best by far. My husband and I stayed at Gran Bahia Principe Akumal May 10-16. I was overjoyed when we arrived and our room request was honored...Villa 66 third floor golden club section!! We had the most beautiful view of the ocean and... More

This was our 2nd trip to the Riveria Maya in the last 6 months and although the first was a little more enjoyable, this was still a very good choice. After reading all the reviews which are so similar, the only thing I can mention is that we booked Cancun transfers to and from the airport. They were great. They... More

It was a great experience, staying at the GBP resort. I think it must be about 3 square km., almost a little village. Certainly worth its 5*. What’s there more to say. Everything was great… The food was excellent (buffet and a la carte). I preferred the buffet at the Tulum side, but I suggest to do them ALL, just... More
