The hotel cancelled our reservation by themselves without any good reason, only diferent names in the credit card holder and booking account (first time in 20 years). They only gave us 24h via mail to change the credit card used. Sometimes when you are travelling you dont have internet all the time. we ask for explanation and they never answer the 2 messages we wrote. very bad customer service with the optional re-reservation by an extra 50% more. very disappointed. i will never now how is the hotel because of that.

My husband and i have stayed at the Akumal 4 times to date and love this place. each time we arrive back it feels like home. Staff are always friendly and helpful and nothing is to much trouble. The hotel is immaculately clean and food is always excellent quality. we've visited most of the a la carte restaurants and love them all but always find we visit the tequila restaurant as much as we can but recommend them all. Rooms - We've stayed in Villa 69 on 3 occasions on request and the adults only block 82 which we loved our butler was fantastic nothing was too much for him. We had requested a room with only 1 king sized bed as lets face it no married couple wants separate beds the two full sized beds are too small for 2 people, sadly upon arrival we were allocated a room with two beds and was told at reception that there where no other rooms available upon speaking with the butler he soon sorted this out and got us a fabulous room. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the resort is so clean and the maid service is fabulous, we always tip the maid and the mini bar guy on a daily basis i think they deserve it as they work extremely hard looking after you and the towel art alone is worth it such a lovely extra. We always visit to spend my birthday here and have had some surprises when we have returned to our room, balloons, banners, a birthday message in rose petals on the bed it's little touches like this that mean so much; and when we've visited the restaurants for my birthday meal they have made it a night to remember. We had been due back this September but due to Covid this has not been possible, we amended to Feb 2021 only for this to be cancelled but unfortunately this is the world we live in at the moment. So we have booked once again for Sept 2021 in the hope we can visit our little corner of paradise again. This time we've decided to try and adults only ocean view room ... here's hoping we get one with a king bed and a big balcony :-) I highly recommend this hotel and could go on forever singing it's praise. Visited 2009,2013,2016,2017. other years spent visiting other countries but staying at Bahia hotels.

We arrived September 30 and left October 9. We were there for both tropical storm gamma, and hurricane Delta. Neither were too bad. We were in villa 66, the ocean view was excellent, the room was so nice. The staff were pleasant as ever, service was excellent we tipped better than we usually do as well since they had to let alot of their staff go due to the other parts of the resort being closed. During covid I feel they took every precaution needed, more so than anywhere else. We have stayed at this resort now 5 times and will be back.

Outstanding. They took every precaution to insure our safety. The food was incredible, and the presentations marvelous. My wife said the spa experience what fantastic. The staff was fabulous, but I have to give extra special thanks to Miguel Miam, who convinced us to buy the Romantic dinner package. He made it a night to remember! The team of Chef Alejandro and Dessert Chef Abimael presented us with an awesome dinner, and Miguel Miam, Ivan, Gustov, Absalon, and Elier were outstanding. Every couple should have this amazing experience. We're seriously considering coming back with the entire family for Christmas if we can work it out!

We flew in at the end of September to the resort and everything was great. The food is really good wherever you go whether it be the buffet or a la cart restaurants. The grounds are immaculate and the atmosphere is nice and relaxing. The entertainment team is superb here. The guys like Alejandro, Valentino and Del Mar plus Maria are a big asset to this facility. They make the vacation fun and get people involved with the activities. They are a 5 out of 5 stars in my book. I like how the Hacienda is right down the road about 5-10 minutes away for shopping. We went during the Covid times and the resort was only about 20-25 percent full but it felt like we had the resort all to ourselves at times. All the workers at the restaurants were very kind and the precautions taken were very good. I always feel good at this resort as my wife and I will be back next year for the 3rd time. Thank you Bahia Principe Akumal....
