Staff trusted us with the equipment and provided us with clean life jackets that fit properly. Our main complaint was mold in the room. When we approached staff about the issue they couldn't understand, and we... More

My wife and I chose this resort for our first visit to Mexico. It was a good choice. The Grand Bahia Principe complex is very large, easy on the eyes, professionally run and relaxing in the extreme. We enjoyed it immensely.

Fun - tons of fun to be had at this resort, between the activity pool where the crazy, upbeat, positive entertainment team keep those who want to get involved, busy with crazy activities; and then there's the beach if you just want to chill, chit chat with friends, or play in the water; night fun was well planned like a...
