DO NOT BOOK YOUR VACATION WITH THEM!!!!!! They are quick to take your money, even though they are closed until November. When I read the review that they were doing a bait and switch with their reservations when you arrive, I called and canceled my reservation immediately. It has been over a month since I have requested my full refund of my full payment and I have yet to receive my money. They blamed the delay on being short staffed…..

As the previous review stated, this resort will NOT be open until NOV. I too made a rsv directly with BHP the first week of May for SK for this July but paid in full. I only found out by happen chance while searching the resort on FB and the comments on their fan page indicated rsv were being switched if booked with an agency (Canada). Immediately, I sent email after email and only two responses where ever received. One telling me to visit their website to see what hotels are open and another stating the hotel is closed and to email the reservation address directly (I DID!). When trying to call their call center I was miraculously disconnected after they pulled my rsv up. FINALLY, an agent confirmed my rsv was switched over to Akumal and that I would have a like room. This is fine and all but like room is not ADULTS ONLY! Additionally, the rates are higher at SK. After being completely upset over this I was placed on hold for 15 min to be told they have internal notes to place me in the adults only section or possibly a ocean front room. When asked why no one bothered to reach out to me, the rep stated they are just starting to contact reservations made in June/July. This is a drag and foreign to me as I have been a LONG time guest of BHP resorts. I have stayed at Akumal, Tulum and Coba many many times. Sian Ka’an was the only resort we had yet to stay. In fact, my family just returned from Tulum this April. I have never experience such unprofessional service. We’ve been guests at their resorts all over since 08 but after this, we will never book again. Bahia - All you had to do was contact me and tell me this. I am fine with Akumal but all you did was take my money and quietly hope I’d not notice until I got there and you’d think I’d have no other options so I’d just stay. Imagine if this were a first time guest. Thinking they booked one resorts only to be shafted. Terrible. You are taking ppls money interest free and then attempting to offer a lesser product. One someone may not want at all.

I made a reservation on May 12th directly with this resort. I did not want to use a third party company or agent. I have a confirmation number, a reservation booking number and even spoke to a representative about scheduling spa appointments in mid-July. They happily took my deposit then upon trying to make the arrangements for the spa a staff member told me they actually aren't booking anything until November, 2021! They made my reservation. They took my deposit and we now have flights already scheduled. No one has bothered to contact me about this change of events. I made my reservations two weeks ago and today, the website will not take reservations during the summer months. There is also a notation NOW on their website about delaying their opening until November. So...what are planning to do with all the people who already booked for the summer months? I have attempted to use every phone number they have provided for contacting the resort directly and the call center. No one answers. This was our first experience with Bahia Principe. This was also our last.

I made reservations in Sept 2020 for our 20th anniversary Nov 20-27th 2020 directly through the Bahia Principe site. On my reservations it says "no need to confirm". So fast forward to Nov 19th, I call to make special dinner reservations for my 20th anniversary, could not get the hotel to answer. So I call the 800 number only to be told they were closed until April 2021. WHAT??? No phone call, no email nothing to inform me that my reservations were junk. They offered to move me to Akumal or Coba that is unacceptable. I booked ADULTS ONLY and do not want to have children anywhere screaming, running and crying for my anniversary trip. Besides my reservations were for $175 a night and both hotels they offered to switch me to were in the $89 per night range. I was sent scrambling last minute to arrange other accommodations. SHAME ON YOU BAHIA PRINCIPE!!!!!!!!!!!! Your inconsideration caused me $2000 in additional charges.

I stayed at the Luxury Bahia Sian Ka'an for 1 week in December 2019 for our honeymoon, before COVID. They upgraded us to a jaccuzzi suite and we have been very satisfied with the service provided (chocolates, sparkling wine, petals on the bed, special decoration). AIRPORT TRANSFER: far away, about 1h30, so be prepared for a long drive. POOL: the hotel offers very good pools, not big but deep enough to swim and very quiet, in the middle of a very luxuriant vegetation; because pools have a smaller size they remain warm, which is a plus. The pools of the Akumal resort is great too! A lot of places to sit. Swim-up bar available, but I really enjoyed more the Sian Ka'an pools. FOOD: excellent, breakfast was very good, fresh food, cocktails drinks (bloody mary, mimosa...) were offered, the quality has been top, cappuccino (made by the server) and coffee were excellent. For the dinner, we enjoyed the restaurants, particularly the Mexican one and the Alux, we didn't enjoy the Don Pablo, the restaurant located near the beach in the other resort (the cocktails drinks were bad, service was poor, food average...). For the lunch, we were eating at the Akumal, they had a small buffet outdoor with daily specialties and it was good. DRINKS: Great drinks at the Sian Ka'an, very good quality, strong and tasty, but the drinks at the beach bar were so-so though, we preferred going to the pool bar at the Akumal resort than going at the beach bar. BEACH: yes Sian Ka'an is far away from the beach but this (despite my fear) didn't bother us, shuttles are regular, every 20 minutes or so, and coming back to the hotel after a day at the beach was relaxing and great. You can take a walk on the beach, going on the left when facing the ocean. Beach is much less beautiful than the one in Riviera Maya. SEA: The part of the ocean in front of the beach is very very quiet and shallow because of the waves breakers, don't expect to play in the waves, there are none. This has good point and bad point, depending on what you like. I missed the wavy ocean but I could snorkel and see some fishes (nothing fancy but fun and interesting). The sea was the part I enjoy the least but it was beautiful though. I tried to swim a little bit further to the left when it was more wavy but I found the current too strong for me. ANIMATION: I tried some zumba on the beach on the morning, was wonderful, they also invite people for different games but I didn't participate. EMPLOYEES: very good, always there to help and provide an excellent service, patient and smiling (and my husband and I bothered them multiples times!!). SHOW: I went just once, it was good and impressive (acrobatic stunts). CONCLUSION: Despite the fact this hotel is not right on the beach, I'd go back, I liked the environment, the quality of the food and drinks, the beauty of the nature, the gentleness and professionalism of the employees.
