Stayed here for 8 days end of October. We were happy with the resort. Our room was fairly simple but clean, air conditioning worked great, bed was super comfy, bathroom had tub and shower. Balcony was nice with partial view of ocean, (villa 69). Everything in the resort was walking distance from our villa, ie: restaurants, pool, beach, lobby. Buffet breakfast in main lobby offered the most options, there’s another smaller breakfast buffet for adults only however we found the service slower and not as many options. Never had a problem finding a chair by the pool or beach. All the restaurants were really amazing, we’ve been to two other resorts in Mexico over the past few years and found the restaurants here were the best! The BEST thing about Akumal is that you can visit the three other resorts on this property, Coba, Tulum and Sian Khan. A shuttle in the main lobby will take you where you want to go. We visited each resort and found that Coba was a nice quiet option for us, we just like to sit by the pool and read our books in the morning. Tulum had more of a party atmosphere. Sian Khan is adults only. Akumal and Tulum have direct access to the beach whereas Coba and Sian Khan need a shuttle to get to the beach. This resort is an hour and a half from the resort, but our driver got us there in a little over an hour.

Fantastic hotel, friendly staff, great service, great food in both buffet and a la Carte restaurants, really clean throughout the complex, pool area/beach amazing. Entertainment throughout the day at the poolside and also during the evening. The entertainment team in particular were brilliant throughout each day/night; Christian, Uriel, Jesus, Jonathan, Maria etc. Only slight downside - rooms could do with some renovation as they are dated however we only used the room to sleep and get ready so weren’t too bothered by it. Would definitely recommend.

We have visited this hotel many times as members of the privilege club. Unfortunately, this time the club's service brought only grief and we turned to the front desk of the hotel where we received the necessary assistance. We give special thanks to Andres from Guest Services. He is always so helpful. I really appreciate his help.

We were there for 7 nights and was a very good experience, the best of this resort is it is a massive place with 5 other hotels inside the resort and 9 restaurants, which are very nice. I recommend this place, we have assisted a lot of wadings there and I personally can consider as a dream holiday place.

We stayed here for two weeks in November as a family of four ,as part a wedding party of 27. We had a wonderful time nothing was too much trouble for anyone. Yes the rooms are dated we were in block 53 but they were clean and very spacious. I wanted a sea view but glad I settled with this room near the trees and the animals also close to reception and the sports bar. You are in the jungle so be ready to see snakes lizards and animals none will bother with you. The food is fab yes the buffet repeats itself, I ate something different every visit have a wander and try new foods. The restaurants yeah on the app it's hard to get in but go to reception they can get you a reservation ( we managed for 21 of us) I recommend the Brazilian, teppanyaki , we ate at the Italian and Indian they were nice but nothing amazing. My glass was never empty whether at the pool, restaurants or a bar . Go through the cocktail list try them all and definitely try an ice beer and scooby doo. Many thanks to our cleaner Barbara, Sandy and Paola in the sports bar and Erik the entertainment guy you were all amazing. Also a massive thanks to Johanna on reception who excelled herself with our reservations for the restaurants and Tips Take de humidifier bags Water shoes Lots of sun cream (reef safe) Metal straws Thermol cups Book excursions outside the hotel there much cheaper Use the collecto (bus) there really easy and cheap Wake up early and watch the sun rise on the beach Tulum town is better than playa del carman not as commercialised

Review that none of you asked for and only half of you will read … 1. we stayed at Akumal and had an AMAZING time. Absolutely 10/10, will return, will recommend, LOVED it. 2. We (my husband and I) arrived in the middle of the night (1am) and were exuberantly greeted with champaign and smiles and kindness. 3. We stayed in the adults only room block (83) as we left our children and dogs at home (with grandparents 😉) 4. Our room was spacious, updated, and extremely clean. The AC worked so well we were freezing most evenings. We kindly asked for a room change to a king bed versus two doubles and they so generously and graciously made that change. 5. We used our “please clean room” sign as soon as we left for breakfast and they were thankful and quick! 6. We had breakfast at the main buffet, Los Corales buffet, and SK buffet. Main buffet, great selection - extremely fresh if you go around 7/7:30-8/8:30. Gets colder and less appealing from 8:30-10:30. Los Corales has a very limited and busy breakfast service and frankly, wouldn’t choose it again. The SK breakfast was recommended to us by the front desk upon check in. We went one morning and it was okay-ish. Very low key. We went another morning as we had an early golf tee time and it was again, “fine”. 7. Golfing at SK was GORGEOUS but early tee times are a MUST!! We had an 8am tee time and mid-course it was extremely warm. They do give you water and ice in a cooler. The rental clubs are superb. Balls are VERY expensive - 3 for $10USD so bring some extra with you - I lost two in the water and one to a precocious iguana. 8. We went to lunch at Tulum twice and though it was a smaller buffet the quality and service was incredible! I also loved their villa and sign updates! 9. Al a cartes: Dolce Vita, Los Corales, Mikado, Tequila - ALL amazing. My husband loved Tequila, I loved Dolce Vita (though our server was short with us and not as warm/friendly). Mikado was extremely warm/hot so be prepared. I also don’t recommend the 9:30 reservation at Tequila (it was the only one we could get and food availability was low). 10. We booked an excursion through the hotel (Mayan ruins, cenote, snorkeling with turtles - lunch included) all serviced by Ruta Maya.. excellent excellent excellent ($108USD per person) 11. USE. YOUR. OWN. REUSABLE/INSULATED. CUP. in the pool. ($14USD on Amazon - we loved the Sunwell cups in bright colors) 12. We used the sports bar either before or after dinner (or both) every single day. FYI- if you order Buffalo wings, it’s only 3 wings per order. Great service. Great Karaoke. The chicken sandwich is SO good (also great from room service!) 13. The trolly system, at times, can be confusing and frustrating - but it always works out 14. Water shoes ($15USD on Amazon) are perfect for the beach here and it is BEAUTIFUL! The fish and the water are amazing. 15. We never had a single problem getting a pool chair/lounger but we often used only one for the both of us as it was usually a holding place for our stuff. Infinity pool is miserable as chairs/loungers were taken by 7am. 16. The Fiesta (on Fridays) at La Hacienda ($20USD/per person) is well worth it - includes food and drinks +entertainment . Book at the hotel! 17. We felt valued and welcomed by everyone, every single day - the entire time, no exceptions. 18. If you’re still reading this and worried about how you look in your swimsuit - PACK THE DAMN SWIMSUIT! Be you, not a single person is judging. 19. We cannot wait to be back, and we’ve already recommended it to everyone we know. 20. It was an absolute pleasure to meet many of you and I hope you have a beautiful holiday/vacation! Travel safe 21. Tip. Be generous if you are able. Please tip your servers, bartenders, house keepers - everyone deserves it x10000! **one last thing - the entertainment team is just the BEST at Akumal - they bring the energy and fun EVERY SINGLE DAY - the entertainment teams at other resorts just can’t match up. We LOVED the energy and atmosphere they created.

Summary: Good value for money, and a great family resort. Huge grounds with lots to do, but also a bit too spread out. Food quite good considering price. Most Ala cartes impressed. Solid beach, although rocky at parts. Rooms could use update. Staff very good, but at times, not enough of them to deliver top notch service. For right price I would definitely return! Pros: Ala cartes were all decent. Lobster included at a few, which was a nice treat. Favourites: Dolce Vita, Mikado, Frutos del mar. We tried luxury restaurants and they were not a level above. Lobster at Arlequin good though! Nice to be able to visit all 4 Bahía resorts (Akumal, Tulum, Si an Ka’an and Coba). Note that only guests at Akumal and Si an Kaan can do this. We could drop kids at club, and then have adults only lunch at Si an Kaan. Trolley service was quite efficient. Beach was nice. Best spot we found was southern part of Tulum resort. Rocky at parts, bring water shoes. Tennis courts in great shape and was easy to find tourists to play with. Was full several times around 8-9. Kids water park/pool in Tulum - incredible for our kids age 6,4. Choose this over Coba! Kids club top notch. Best we have seen in Mexico. Supervisors really high energy. Thank you Augustina, Anna and team. Buffet - only ok overall. more Guacamole please… felt like they were rationing, very annoying! Limited options for kids cereal (only 2). Meat and fish selection was limited at times but what they had was good. Service was good, but depended on how busy it was. Jose was excellent and we tended to try and find him! AC - was fine mostly. Some ala cartes were hot. Wifi - best of the 5 we’ve been to in Riviera Maya. Literally can get it everywhere! Alcohol - JW black included which was a big plus for us. You can see the full list on their website App - would use it. Not perfect but very helpful overall during stay Could be improved: Ala Carte - hard to book for bigger groups (10). We had to eat at 5:30 or 9 most nights and could not get into all the restaurants we wanted to. This was a disappointment. Japanese at Si an Kaan … not good service Service after 10pm dropped off considerably. No food and weak service in Akumal lobby, the best place to hang out. Sports bar gets packed! This was quite a disappointing part of experience. Resort layout - it is far from some rooms to the main lobby (10 min walk). Trolley coming every 15 min makes it tough justify waiting. Coffee bar - nothing special. Decent espresso and cappuccino, but same as everywhere. Real gelato would be nice (vs just ice cream). Gym - could be bigger. Also no real exercise program (spin class, cross fit etc would be good). Tulum gym was best Rooms - showing age, but comfortable. Beds a bit on firm side. Pillows were bad, but we were provided much better ones simply by requesting through app. Grounds are beautiful. Other tips for guests: Snorkel - lots of fish off beach. No corral. If you walk to just before Sunscape (15 min north from hotel Tulum on beach) there is quite a bit of coral. You could walk to Akumal Beach (50 min) for top notch coral plus potential to see turtles. Easier to see turtles with guide though. Aktun Chen - amazing cenote / nature park that is literally across street. Only about $55 usd for an awesome tour. Can take trolley to Si an Kaan and ask them to let you off right before bridge. Save $ vs booking through resort. Hacienda - make sure you barter! Notes for staff & hotel: - Waiting 15 minutes for Guacamole at buffet, not something I would expect at this level of resort. And an easy fix. Many other guests shared same frustration with me. Big miss here! - Alejandro at Dolce Vita = AWESOME - Andres at service desk very helpful - Small plates in sports bar for sharing chicken wings are needed - No coffee before 7am in lobby is a huge miss for 5 star resort. Put in same machine they had a Tulum and Sinan Kaan! - more shade, umbrellas at Zama kids area. Shade over part of pool would be nice also - Don Julio blanco was not available at any of bars we asked at. It should not be advertised as included on website. - map in Hotel app explaining shuttles would be helpful. I ended up using google maps a lot to figure out where things were across the 4 resorts - Consider keeping the theatre bar open until 12pm. - basic snack options at sports bar 10-12pm would help a lot. Even just fries and chips. It’s a far walk to snack bar and not a nice place to hang out!! - we stayed in 5111 Nov 11-18

Loved every minute of my time at Bahia Principe Akumal. The staff was stellar, the room was huge, the pools were plentiful, and the dinners were one better than the next! Celebrated my birthday with friends and we all loved the experience so much that we're hoping to make it an annual tradition. Can't wait for the excuse to come back!
