WOW ! From the first second to the last ! Everything was amazing ! We went as a family, with my husband, my 10 month old and my 5 years old. My husband enjoyed tennis lessons, sports bar and the pools. I enjoyed the pilates, yoga, volley-ball ... We always felt treated like VIP. Sebastian at the buffet was more than friendly, making efforts to speak french. The chef at the buffet (or in the restaurants a la carte) always made a special puree for our baby, fast and delicious ... What can I say about the kids club ? They are amazing !!! Carlos, Leo and Julietta took great care of our 5 years old ! He never wanted to stay with us, even if he was the only french speaker kid. Their program is amazing they make shows at night, the snorkel, the go to the pool, they take them to the buffet ... They absolutly take care of them. Special kudoos to Carlos who is always so nice and caring and energetic ! Also, the cleaning room lady Sylvia was a gem ! So nice and funny ! The food is great everywhere, the cocktails are delicious. Everything is spotless ! The beach is rocky but with shoes the water is super clear and warm. We were on the building 47, the ocean view was breathtaking ! It was the best 5 stars I've ever been ! Thank you everyone for everything ! Marine, Flo, Joey and Felix

This was our 6th stay at this resort and what an amazing 14 days. Weather was much better than the Tropical Storm and Hurricane that greeted us during our 7 day stay in October 2020. We had a great ocean front room in Villa 47 which provided us with amazing views of the sunrise. Rooms are a little dated but who stays in their room long enough for this to really matter? We aren't buffet people, or early birds for that matter but we did have breakfast delivered to the room every day and enjoyed the beautiful ocean view to start each morning. The resort felt nearly empty due to COVID restrictions and restaurants were limited but we expected this and planned accordingly. Pre-booking for our reservations worked excellent and we arrived fully booked for each night of our stay. We did juggle our reservations after arrival and only had one night we needed assistance as all restaurants were full. The privilege club concierge's at Akumal and Tulum (David and Jose) were able to work their magic and hook us up. Special thanks to our privilege club concierge David who took care of all our needs during our stay. Also want to give a shout out to Archangel and Diar at the Akumal privilege beach and Alejandro from the Tulum privlege beach. Archangel and Diar made my Wife's Birthday very special with Champagne chilled when we got to the beach and special cocktails throughout the day. Alejandro filled in at Akumal a couple days during our stay and also took care of us when we would stop in for drinks at Tulum. Archangel and Diar always took the time to make conversation and help us learn a little Spanish which was very nice. Also want to thank Jaime at the Akumal privilege club lounge for great conversation and always greeting us with a smile. COVID has definitely been tough on this resort but the staff has adapted well and took all the precautions possible to make us feel safe during our stay. Looking forward to our next stay and the amazing service we have become accustomed too.

We just returned from our girl's 50th birthday trip at Riviera Maya, what a wonderful time we had at the Bahia Principe Luxury Akmul! The hotel rooms are nothing to write home about but they are clean and sufficient. If something was needed the staff was quick to bring it. Although the air conditioning and mini fridge could have been a bit cooler, I didn't go there to spend time inside my room. The hotel grounds were well cared for and the restaurants and restrooms were spotless! The food at all of the restaurants was delicious and fresh, including the buffets, which at some resorts cannot be said. They had a nice selection of food and an attentive wait staff. They were all very polite and professional at all times! Jose at the beach snack bar was fun and efficient. And I wish I could remember more of the names of our servers at the main buffet, they were wonderful as well! Let me talk about the staff! The staff is this resort's best asset. The people at the Frutos Del Mar made us feel so special, giving us a special appetizer plate on the second day we ate there! The shuttle driver Cesar stands out but all of the shuttle guys were awesome! Victor at the front desk was a pleasure and helped us get our return papers in order.(covid forms that needed printed) He was so sweet to all of us. I have to give Angel his own paragraph because he was more than amazing. Almost magical! Whenever something needed fixed or done, he would just appear! Lol! When all of the ala carte restaurants were full, he got us reservations, got us beach towels the first day when we asked where to go for them, he responded to some small issues in our room, helped with some technical difficulty with those darn covid papers and gave me a ride over to the hacienda to exchange a shirt I had bought and offered to wait for me! He was attentive and had the position to get things done! A giant shout out to Angel! I don't really have any complaints about this place, other than the beach was rocky and you really need water shoes to get in most places. The rooms could use an update it's true but other than that, it was a great place to stay! I hope to go back soon with my husband!

Been to a lot of different resorts, but this is our new favorite. The staff works tirelessly to ensure the resort is perfect. The butler and concierge services make sure that you have everything you need from room service, aromatherapy in your room, or even a different type of pillow.

Although the quality and standards have suffered some. It is understandable due to pandemic. The resort its beautiful and the beaches are outstanding. The staff is outstanding. first of all, I want to give a shout out to several people that made are stay memorable. Francisco at the front desk found us the right room for are stay. Maria Casanova at the adults buffet was lovely and attentive. Her attention was superb with her team Teomiro and Paulino. The entertainment team was amusing and entertaining. Especially Silvino, Jaqueline, Del mar and Alejandro. Antonio at the adults pool bar was great and also the lifeguard Carlos Manuel El Chino. At the restaurant Frutos Del Mar several staff members made the evening memorable and the food was excellent. Gladys Fildino and Leonel. We also had and enjoyable evening at the Italian restaurant Dolce Vita. Overall, I would say the after more than a year of confinement. This was a much needed vacation and the Resort provide all that we needed and more. Thanks everyone at the Resort for making it happen!!
