We just returned from this very nice resort. I would have rated the overall experience 5 stars if not for a couple of things that I I'll mention. Before I discuss the negatives, I will say that I would recommend this resort to my family and friends. The setting is incredible, the facility very much in keeping with the surroundings,... More

We were originally booked in villa 26, and was very surpised how far away from everything we were, the resort was HUGE. Our room was OK, nothing great, no view... More

The wedding was 100 times worse than we could have ever imagined. Let me tell you the horror story... I mean wedding story: - We arrived late on Sunday (Jan. 7th) and were assigned our room. Other than a simple ocean view there was NO room upgrade. During our check-in we received a letter from the wedding coordinator, Alana MENDEZ... More

We travelled to Mexico for my Nephew's wedding April 15th. The resort had beautiful grounds and at first everything seemed to be perfect. The check in was totally confusing as no one late at nite spoke any english. Our signature rep should have been there but that is another issue. The bus ride we were told was suppose to be... More

Stayed at Bahia Principe Tulum (04/21/07 - 04/28/07) The Good: Resort - Immaculate grounds, very clean and well maintained. Very large resort, but I never had a problem catching a tram or hailing a golf cart and throwing him a $5 to take me anywhere I wanted to go. Other reviews mentioned mosquitos...I never saw one. Rooms - Beds didn't... More

Stayed at The Bahia Tulum from April 4th thru the 11th. Everything was absolutely beautiful!!! The only thing that we missed was waiters on the beach, but we managed, and the exercise was welcomed after all the wonderful food! Traveled with my husband and two children 21 and 16. My daughter loved the scenery of four young men , we... More
