We got this hotel at what we thought was an incredible discount but little did we know that we would get there and not have air conditioning for the whole week. We called the desk every day and they told us it would be fixed. On the 5th day they said "the air in this room just doesn't work" On... More

Definitely 5stars. Fantastic holiday had by our family, 15 &12. Great choice of food at all buffet style restaurants and excellent choice of a la carte restaurants. Would especially recommend the French one. Amazing service from all staff. Clean and beautifully maintained grounds. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a luxury Mexican break away from built up Cancun.

Our second stay here and we thoroughly enjoyed it again. We were upgraded to the Hacienda section, but had no seaview; we were moved to a seaview on the third night. The room was older than the first room (A/C not as strong, older furniture), but we had requested the change so did not complain but instead, we enjoyed the... More

Stayed for 10 nights. It really was a lovely hotel so well kept with a great choice and food and drink with plenty of extras each day to keep things different like a BBQ at snack bar etc the four restaurants that we booked were all good too but by far the Japanese and Brazilian were the best. The room... More

We stayed at the Grand Principe Tulum for 5 days as part of a group of 15 (4 families). We had a great time. The food is amazing with a variety of choices - though a little bland for an Indian palate, habanero sauce was readily available. The accommodation and all the amenities are excellent. Alcohol flows freely :-), The... More
