This was our second time to this resort. We have been there as a couple and now with kids. The property is beautiful, very nice place to stay. The rooms are comfy, the service is awesome. Never had any issues both as a couple and with our kids. Free wifi would be nice but part of me loved that there... More

Went back to GBPT resort because it has a golf course on the property across the street and play was $80.00 after 1300. Applevacations.com has gateway cities with direct flights to Cancun. They have reps. at the airport to direct you to your transportation. The resort is about 75 miles from Cancun and it is a pleasant travel to the... More

Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Grand Bahia Principe Tulum. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The buffet restaurants were very good - lots of variety and good quality. Our kids really enjoyed the beach. There are some more rocky areas but there are some good stretches of clean sand. They have installed some barriers adjacent to Tortuga... More

Missing the Bahia already and we just returned home last night! The staff and service are truly what makes this resort stand out. Melchor Loria of the Diamond Club went above and beyond – from fulfilling our room requests, to ensuring we had our choice dinner reservations, to helping make our friend’s birthday “the best she’d ever had” – he...

We travelled to this resort unaware of the luxury we were to be experiencing. The arrival was breathtaking, I could not believe how beautiful this place was. It felt as though there was a pool around every corner of varying sizes and perferences, the beach is on the doorstep, white sandy beaches and little bats are abundant. The selection of... More
