“Excellence is here!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Just back from this excellent hotel. Had a great time. From checking in which was easy with a welcome chilled drink, we where taken to our room by golf buggy. Room was spacious with a huge bed much bigger than a king size. Seating area, double wardrobe with robes and slippers. Fridge which is stocked daily with spirits, pop lager, crisps and water. Iron and board. Bathroom basic but very clean. We stayed by the pool all day long. There's 3 pools one is the very quiet pool near the al a carte restaurant. Middle pool was where we liked to be (beside bar) animation team are only there on afternoons not the best team I've seen pool volley ball and water polo played on alternative days in alternative pools. Then a crazy game so you can win tequila. If you don't want to be involved they don't hassle you. Bars are clean with plenty to chose from. The beauty of this place is you can use the other hotels on site but they can't use sian Kaan. 14 al a carte restaurants between the 4 hotels. Some better than others but some has air con and the ones that don't get really hot and sweaty. My fav was miako at sian Kaan. Did two in there. Coba Has a casino which is good had a full night in there. There's buses to take you from hotel to hotel. Food in main buffet restaurant really impressed me. So clean no flies and presented really well. Would I stay again. Yes I would. One of the best hotels I've stayed in Mexico. And I've been four times. Stayed at the akumal hotel last time and defo sian Kaan is 100 per cent better.

If you're looking for an excelent quality hotel in paradise;this is it!
A quiet, beautiful all inclusive hotel with all you could wish for a pleasant stay. I've never been before to a hotel that for a very reasonable price, gives you the best of the best in food, snacks, drinks and live music. I'm planning to go back at least once a year with my family.
You can find all kinds of activities in the area, or just relax in paradise.

This was our 3rd time to stay at this resort. We love the adults only, serene environment. The nightly entertainment is great after a nice dinner. The food is some of the best I've ever tasted. All of the service was great, but we particularly enjoyed our favorite waiter, Adrian Mos Chan. He always had a smile on his face and always remembered what we like to drink at dinner.

The hotel is perfect for honeymoons. Without children, a great overall service and environment.
The hotel staff is very nice and helpfull.
Don't forget to find the bartender Alexander. He makes the best mojitos in all Bahia Principe.

Stayed at the resort for two weeks in July and had a fabulous holiday. There are of course a few gripes but this is true of all locations and if you are going to go looking for flaws then you are going to find them.
The hotel is set on a huge complex and shares some ground with some other non adult only hotels. However no children were at the hotel itself.There are regular buses that run between the resorts, beach and shopping area. These are quick and effective and I never had to wait too long. To be honest in the evening they were a God-send as they allowed you a little breeze which was respite from the humidity. The hotel is set further back so it is hotter than the other locations but the bedroom was always cool and the air con was effective and quiet.
The check in process was very swift and the people on the desk were always extremely polite and helpful. The room itself was ample in size and very clean. It was on the 3rd floor (42323) and we never had any problems with bugs in the room. They were on the door but never came in. There are mozzies etc in the area but what do you expect; you are in the jungle. Take some spray. The bathroom was fine. There is enough storage space although my girlfriend would have liked a few more hangers. The mini bar had enough drinks and you can ask for more. It was filled everyday. It was nice to have a cold beer in-between the end of the day and night time activities.
There are lots of restaurants to chose from across the whole complex; you simply book at the concierge. Tried Alux and the Japanese on site and both were very nice. We also went to a couple at the other hotels. They were ok but nothing special. Couldn't get into the Brazilian but heard good things. The main buffet was super and the choice was always varied and freshly cooked. The lady doing the omelettes was a star! I wish I had her here at home. She had some time off and it was noticeable how every thing slowed down at the counter. I never felt stuck for choice in the two weeks. They did some great prawns or shrimps depending on what you call them.
Drinks were all branded and plentiful. The measures were big; a little too big on occasion :) Must mention Angela in the main bar-absolutely brilliant and so happy and cheerful I wish some of the bar staff were like that in the UK. Also Josue in the main restaurant. Always happy, chatty and efficient. These type of staff make or break a holiday. I never met one rude member of staff the whole time which is credit to the company and the Mexican work ethos.
The entertainment was a little weak and repetitive. You can visit the other hotels and see shows and would recommend that if that is your thing. They had some acrobats and they were great. However my ears could only cope with so much karaoke and club singers.
Did a small eco tour on site which was interesting enough and learnt a few bits. Didn't see much wildlife but that's life.
This hotel has a large number of different nationalities. The Spanish and Italians seemed in the majority but they are harmless although queuing is a mystery to them. There were Americans, Canadians and a few Brits.
Did some trips through Thomson and they were really great. Will never forget the whale sharks.
There is a collectiveo stop at the end of the road and would suggest using this to go and see the turtles at Akumel. Amazing and cheap
The Hacienda is a collection of shops and they sell the standard garbage and are expensive. But as they say make hay while the sun shines and if people are willing to buy silly hats etc then so be it.
The hotel may be a bit quiet if you are looking for a party time but you can always use the other hotels clubs and bars. I do think the Sian Kaan should open its bar until 11.30 as 11.00 is early to close.
Pool was fine and the bar service was good as they brought drinks to you. The snack bar by pool was at best average.

Thanks to all the staff at the hotel

I have never been to Mexico so i was a little worried about all the hype about the violence but it went well! The transfer was smooth and dropped us off. I Stayed at the Sian Kaan and Oh My!! What a wonderful experience! Check in was quick, and we were taken to our Penthouse Suite with Jacuzzi. The Room was excellent, clean and perfect. The food was great including the buffet and a la carte's. There were 2 pools that were clean and refreshing. The Golf course was on-site and well kept. A couple cons were that the beach was a little far but there was a little trolly that took you there every 5 to 10 minutes. I don't think you would be able to walk it. I also had gotten a insect bite on my foot that swelled until I couldn't walk. I went to a shop near our hotel and got some cream to put on it and worked like a charm. The AC was not working when we got into our room but called the front desk and was fixed immediately. Unfortunately we got roped in to a time-share speech that lasted about an hour but didm;t mind too too much.
All in all, the Sian Kaan is such a wonderful place to stay and would recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a penthouse suite. Worth the money. Get a room at the back of the hotel if you want more...
