“Mike&Ann St.Albert AB,Fantastic &Thanks to Priviledge Club Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

We have stayed at Bahia Principes in Dominican R. and Mexico on several occasions and this was one of the two best by far.Sian Ka'an is unique in that was carved right out of the jungle , leaving as much of the natural vegetation in tack as possible. We had a "Junior Superior Garden" suite which is on the ground level. It had a beautiful private patio and each has its' own outdoor jacuzzi tub surrounded by small palm trees for privacy. If you can get "Junior Superior Penthouse" suite (third floor) with a rooftop jacuzzi,it would be fantastic as long as you dont mind the two flights of stairs. Middle floor is called a "Junior Superior" , But do not get just a "Junior Suite". They are just too small. Thanks to the Staff at the BP Priviledge Club for helping fix a mixup on our early arrival and for taking fantastic care of us for our entire stay. Thank You, Miluska, Karla, Armando, and the Mgr. Ana. They took care of every thing for us including private transportation from and to the airport.This was much better than riding on a "milk run" bus ride. The Food ; Sian Ka'an is definately the best food we have ever enjoyed at any BP resort. The Buffet is better than most other resort A La Carte restaurants! In fact after two painfully slow service experiences at Akumal & Tulum we cancelled the other resort A La Cartes and ate only at Sian Ka'an A La Cartes (Alux & Maiko) and had great evening diners at the main buffet too.We especially enjoyed a quiet breakfast at Alux most days, It was right beside our building ,and in fact most of the buildings are so much closer to the lobby and main buffet that it feels more comfy. Beautiful modern rooms , wifi, great showers (no tub except jacuzzi) two remotes for A/C and firm king size beds.Both Sian Ka'an and the Priviledge Club has their own private beaches, 5-10 minutes away with good service for drinks and rides right to the beach.. We spent most of or time around the large quieter pools at SK but watched a lot of the fun activities around the "fun pool" Great activities staff. Hotel staff were excellent and always had a smile and an "Ola" for us. We Loved the golf and never saw anyone else on the tricky Executive nine course. A bit expensive. You have to visit the "Tao Centre" and do the Temezcal Ceremony (sweat lodge) . A truly rewarding experience . The Tao centre has a full gym and two outdoor swimming lanes for guest to use. Very quiet over there with full showers , lockers , snack bar and only a five minute ride. We will definately go back to Sian Ka'an.

Room Tip: If you plan on using the jacuzzi a lot, then ask for a more private jacuzzi location . Make sure you...

We stayed at the Sian Kaan from Feb. 26-March 5. While the resort seems geared toward couples, my lady friend and I (both seniors) had a great time! The adults only aspect of the resort is wonderful. On those occasions that we ventured across the street to go to another restaurant (more on that later), I felt as if I were in Manhattan -- very crowded with strollers, people, lots of hub-bub.
But there was no real reason to leave Sian Kaan. The food -- oh, the food -- on the buffet yet! It was delicious! I, for one, loved all the salads in the little cups. Everything was fresh and perfectly seasoned. Ana the greeter always had a smile on her face and Faustino Lorice took very good care of us at breakfast and lunch. On several occasions, we tried other restaurants at the other properties. However, had we gone to Alux on the Sian Kaan property earlier in our stay, I never would have ventured anywhere else, except the buffet, of course. Alux is, by far, one of the finest restaurants I've experienced, and I consider myself a food snob. Outstanding!! Try the pheasant cannollis. And Iran took very good care of us.
We went to the private beach a couple of times during the afternoon, but I enjoyed the pools more because it wasn't so crowded and while the ocean water looked beautiful, I was afraid it would be too cold. The weather during our stay had its ups and downs.
My friend took advantage of swimming with the dolphins which she enjoyed very much. I played golf and while the rental clubs left a great deal to be desired (check before you leave the clubhouse. First they gave me left handed clubs then the grips on the second set apparently had been beset by moths!), I had a great time. When I return, I'll take my own clubs and play more often. Great fun!
Two things for the It-Would-Have-Been Nice department: It would have been nice if the hotel offered an option of two queen sized beds in the junior suite garden upgrade, which is what I thought I paid for. It ended up that my friend and I had to share the king size which turned out all right. Second, it would have been nice to have the room equipped with drawers of some sort. However, Angelina at the front desk was, indeed, a little angel in helping us straighten out our room angst.
We had a great, relaxing time and I would recommend this property wholeheartedly!

Room Tip: If you ask for a room in a quiet section, your request will probably be honored. I'd stay away...

My boyfriend and I just came back from a wonderful week at the Sian Kaan (March 4th - 11th; Travelled via Air Transat, booked on RedTag.ca) We travelled last year with another couple to the Bahia Principe Coba (practically across the street) and was very happy with that trip, however this facility was certainly an upgrade and more luxurious. Thank you to everyone for their reviews, there were so many little tips that I exercised while I was down there (pre-booking dinners, etc). First off, the food is exceptional no matter where you go here, hands down (I ganed weight actually, it was TOO good!) I personally eat gluten free and there were so many options, I didn't even have to worry. Lots of healthy, fresh options (love the smoothies at breakfast!). The Gala night on Saturday had lobster - yum! However you have to get there early, they go through them quickly! We went to Alux twice (Thank you Wilberth and his assistant Iran for your excellent service!). It was decadent, and some of the best beef tenderloin Jeff had ever had. I loved the gourmet touches, like being handed a warm towl to clean your hands before dinner and mints as you left . We also went to Mikado, Japanese food, delish. Recommend both. We went to 1 dinner at Coba (Portofino) however it was a trek to get there and wow, what a difference in food and service. Stick with Sian Kaan is my advice! Don't waste your time over there. Also, the coffee and cappuccino are SO good in Mexico, You must get cappuccino from the lobby bar as a late afternoon pick-me-up! I pre-booked all dinners with Brisa for 8pm via email. She was efficient and friendly. I went to the Spa one afternoon and it was fabulous. They hand you a cool towel to use when you walk in to cool off from the sun. So beautiful, serene and realxing I could've stayed all day. I had the 50 minute Mayan Massage with Daisy and it was one of the best spa experiences I've ever had. I had the entire facility to myself! Such a nice break in between other vacation activities. They have a nice seating area you can lie down in while you wait, I almost fell asleep! One area Jeff and I agreed needs to be tuned up is the golf pricing: Jeff is an avid golfer, and was looking forward to playing the Riviera Maya golf course. It is so beautiful, I decided to ride along in the cart. Well, it cost Jeff $80 (manageable) for green fees and me $50 (what!?) just to ride in the cart!!!! That was frusterating. Nothing about the golf is free. You pay for everything, including $10 if you just want to go hit balls. That's too bad and can really be quite expensive. Jeff said we have come before and may purchase a condo in the facility (only partially true lol), but they wouldn't budge. However, it is beautiful scenery and the drink cart is never too far so we got over it. We stayed in the Garden View Jacuzzi Suite. I had to clean out the jacuzzi (it is outside, of course!) but we did end up using it one day after the pool. Our first room was close to the activity pool and it was SO loud (sounds really carries in this facility!), we asked to move and we were the next day to 40104; which was the perfect location. When you go, you MUST MUST go to Tao Wellness Centre! This is where the gym/classes are. I personally took Hatha Yoga and Tai Chi with Victor (very good!), and Zumba with another fellow who was HILARIOUS and cracked me right up. A great way t start the day. The trolley picks you rightup in front of the lobby and takes you there. There are also 2 lap pools, I only saw 1 person using. It is such a beautiful facility set in a serene jungle setting, you must make time for it. Jeff and I did an excursion to Chichen Itza while we were there. We were annoyed with the pricing, as we paid $109 USD through Air Transat and the people behind us paid $49 USD through someone else!!!! Pricing is all over in Mexico. However it was a "once in a lifetime:" opportunity, and very interesting. With that being said, the Centoe we visited on the way was the highlight for both of us! It was so beautful, we swam in this underground river, its natural, and one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. That alone was woth the price of admission. They also serve you a buffet lunch, and are constantly offering drinks and spanish biscuits on the bus which was nice. It was a long day (9am - 8pm) however it was enjoyable. All in all, I am a huge fan of the Bahia Principe line of resorts. Sian Kaan was peaceful and relaxing. and the adults only was a HUGE plus. It was quieter resort, so if you're looking for more nightlife or action, head to Coba. The staff go out of their way to greet you and serve you, so please tip. Canadians are known for being cheap sometimes, and I saw so many people completely disregard the staff afters dinners/trolley rides etc, whereas we always tipped. It makes a difference to them I'm sure, and they deserved it. I speak very highly of this trip, and would absolutely recommend to any adults looking for a luxurious vacation.

We just returned from a very enjoyable week at BP Sian Ka'an. It is a luxury resort set in a jungle backdrop, with hard working staff and a premium food and drink experience. There are definitely a few things to be aware of before you go depending on the type of traveller that you are, but this resort scores a lot of check marks. It was our 6th time to this area and the first to this resort chain. Before we left, we contacted Claudia at the resort to make a room request and book our a la cartes and she was very helpful and professional (see other posts for her contact information).

High points:
- top-notch a la carte and buffet restaurants (all are much better than those in the BP complex)
- premium liquors, including cognacs and brandies. A few at cost but many very good options included at no cost. Cuervo and Crown Royal in mixed drinks a definite plus.
- impeccably clean rooms, common areas and resort grounds....modern and beautiful

To be aware of:
- Located on the other side of the highway away from the beach, shuttle service to a private beach club (<5 minutes) or to other parts of the complex (5-20 minutes)
- affiliated with adjacent golf course, but 'discounted' green fee + rental quite expensive, definitely bring your own clubs if you want to play
- no towels cards for towel service like the main BP complex (good), but towel service sporadic throughout the resort, could definitely be improved. No towels in locker rooms at golf club.

I would rate the accommodations, service and food/drink as 5 stars, and the resort location and amenities as 4 stars. I felt that the resort was excellent value for what we paid in high season.

Room Tip: Rooms by the sushi bar are very quiet and private, but are further from the lobby. Good for travell...

We were at the Sian Ka'an from Feb. 16th to March 2nd . My wife and I have been to the BP resorts sereral times but this was our first visit to the Sian Ka'an. It was a great trip, exceeded our expectations. The resort was perfect, the food incredible and our room was fantastic. We had a great view of the ocean, a fair distance away, but from our Penthouse suite balcony we could see the sun rise and the sun set. The staff at the Sian Ka'an are what makes the resort what it is, from Vanessa, the guest services manager to the landscape staff, they we all incredible, made you feel special and always polite and happy to see you. I would highly reccomend the resort and we will be returning again soon

We had an excellent experience at Sian Kaan. It was a long trip down (1 hour exactly) from the airport but it was worth it. The food and service were great. This was our 4th trip to Riviera Maya, and other than our honeymoon (which we paid for a better room) this was hands down the best. If you are impatient and do not like to wait for shuttles, this place is not for you. I don't think we ever waited longer than 10 minutes for a golf cart or a shuttle, but you need to go into this thinking that you will need to be shuttled if you wish to go to the other resorts along the coast.

Rooms were great. Beds were firm, but comfortable. Bathrooms were very nice as well. The design and modern feel was extremely nice. We were upgraded for free, which was nice. The only drawback for us was our location. We were located at the building furthest from the lobby and restaurants, etc.

Food was excellent. It was noticeable better at Sian Kaan than the other 3 Bahia Principe resorts across the road. Both Maiko and Alux were elegant atmosphere and awesome food. HIghly recommend the Tequila restaurant as well, our entrees were phenomenal. We enjoyed Pescado, but the service was slow and the waiter didn't stop back too often. We did enjoy the "appetizer buffet" prior to our main dishes at that restaurant.

The pool environment was top notch as well. The water was cooler than we expected, but we heard they had a lot of rain prior to our arrival. I'd rather have cool water and sun than rain, no doubt. I'd guess pool water was 80 degrees. Bars and drinks were all great, nothing to complain about either. The free snorkeling was nice and enjoyed. Ocean floor was rough in places, but just simply avoided those areas. No doubt, the beaches were BUSY. You needed to get there early to get your towel on a chair. We mostly hung out near the pools and could take a dip when we wanted.

All in all, I'd highly recommend it!

Room Tip: Buildings numbered lower (1,2,3, etc.) are closer to the lobby and restaurants.

Not sure if I need to add anything more as our review title states it all...but I will anyway. This was our first trip to Mexico. I searched the internet extensively and I must say the reviews on trip advisor did help. We arrived March 2nd at the hotel just before lunch, and we were treated to a margarita as we were checking in.

ROOM
The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are clean, quiet and very functional. Our room had a king bed, sitting area and beautiful bathroom and a balcony. The A/C system was on a remote control and was quiet and effective

FOOD
The food, well the food was more like a 10 star.

BUFFET
Before I talk about the a la cart restaurants, I must say the main buffet by the lobby is in itself a great place to eat. It had a great variety of food no matter if it was breakfast, lunch or dinner and the food was fantastic. You could just eat at the buffet all week and you would be happy. Want a quieter but still great breakfast, eat at the location by the first pool (it is the Alux al a carte restaurant at night) but provides a great breakfast and is closer to most rooms.

Al LA CARTE RESTAURANTS
The nice thing about staying at the Sian Kaan hotel versus the other three (Coba, Akumal or Tulum) was that with our all inclusive package we got unlimited al a carte restaurant choices. Here were our choices; restaurant name - type of restaurant (Hotel) - comments
1) Alux - International Gourmet (Sian Kaan) - good food, quaint, romantic, good service
2) Dolce Vita - Italian (Coba) - okay food, okay service, noisy
3) La Gran Tortuga - Brazilian (Tulum) - good food, interesting menu, good service
4) Mediterraneo - Mediterranian (Coba) - good food, romantic, good service, right next to beach
5) Arlequin - International Gourmet (Akumal) - excellent food, romantic, great service, 5 star
Of these the Arlequin was by far the best. In fact we went there twice. The "filet mignon" was the best I have ever had. Also try the french white wine from the their list (sorry forgot the name).

SIAN KA'AN SERVICE
The service at this resort was definitely 5 star. All the staff went out of their way to be helpful, nice and all with a sense of humor. Please remember to tip. Yes your package may say it includes gratuities, but you are at a 5 star resort. These tips are a major part of the service staff's income. $20 for dinner, $10 to $20 for other meals and min $5 per delivered drinks to me is minimum.

OVERALL EXPERIENCE
When we go back to Mexico, we will definitely be going back to the Gran Bahia Principe "SIAN KA'AN hotel as it was a fantastic 7 days where we were treated like royalty and like we mattered. And the fact that it is an adult only (18+) was a great bonus. Love kids, have 4 of our own, but when you do not bring the kids, you prefer not to share your time with someone else's either.

Stay here and you will not regret your choice.
