Fantastic resort, phenomenal experience. There was never a moment that my wife and I weren't completely more than satisfied with the staff, services, and care we received while staying at bahia principe. Special thanks go out to Samantha and all the privilege club staff members. Not a night went by without the privilege club members checking in with my wife and myself to make sure our stay was anything short but fantastic

This resort is absolutely breathtaking! The staff are all so welcoming, friendly, and fun. They make you feel like a part of the family. (Special thanks to Jonathan. We went on a bike tour with him one day and he never failed to stop by and say hi to us. Even remembered all of our names.) There are so many activities to do such as dancing classes, water sports, yoga, night shows, etc. But if you want to relax, there are plenty of places you can do that as well. I definitely recommend the Bahia Spa for the massages. You feel so relaxed and refreshed. The buffet offers a lot of different types of food that tastes delicious but I also highly recommend making reservations to the restaurants as well. I haven’t tasted food so mouthwatering like that in a while. I’m sure that many people are scared to go on vacation because of Covid, however the staff go above & beyond to make sure that everything is disinfected and they make sure to take every preventable measurements to make sure that we’re all safe. I was pleasantly surprised how on top of things they were. My girls and I have been here for a week and it’s been so much fun & relaxing at the same time. It’s a trip that we definitely needed and everybody at this resort has made our trip even more memorable. I usually don’t like going to the same place more than once but I will definitely be back here again soon. Thank you Bahia Principe for an unforgettable vacation! ❤️

First time at a Bahia Resort. We have traveled to the Riviera Maya prior, several times before. We traveled with a group of six. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our one week stay at the Bahia Akumal Resort. Prior to departing, I think I read every recent review, the good and the bad. The can honestly say I did not experience any of the negative experiences mentioned in the bad reviews. I went down there with an open minded, but still aware of concerns raised by others. We arrived a few hours early, were greeted part the staff immediately upon arrival, our baggage secured and tagged, and direct to the Front Desk. All of us completed the early check-in and were quickly registered with the resort. One room was ready, two were not, but we were a few hours early. The staff suggested we relax in the restaurant and enjoy lunch. We were greeted by the restaurant staff and seated. After a quick bit we went back to check on the rooms and they were ready. We were driven to our rooms, and the luggage brought up to the rooms as we settled in the the coming week. The ocean front room views were stunning. Room was clean, and no odors noted. I had concerns for the mattress from the prior reviews. Mattress was firm and we slept great on it. As a person with back pain, there were no concerns with it. Mini Frig stock with a few bottles of water, sodas, chips and beers. Frig refilled each day of the stay. Room towels clean and replaced daily. Room cleaned daily, and early in our case, which is good as we are early morning people. Minimum sounds from the adjacent rooms and floors were a welcome relief. No thin wall conversations heard here. Peaceful week undisturbed. Beach is rocky and has broken shells so water shoes are a must. Beach is no different than the other Riviera Maya beaches I've visited. Beautiful views and warm water. Resort installed a breakwater wall to shelter the beach. Sea life is plentiful in the water around the beach, with small fish swimming around you. We spent a great deal of time at the Adults Only Infinity Pool. It is quiet in the mornings to early afternoon, when the sound starts to pick up. The two servers at the Infinity Pool, Carmen and Leidy were constantly checking to ensure our beverages didn't run low. Excellent servers. Most of the lunches were eaten at the Acuario Beach Restaurant. The server Jose is professional and very friendly. Great sense of humor. Great service when it is just a snack bar restaurant. You get the full service. Went to four of the Ala Carte Restaurants; Gourmet Arlequin, Dolce Vita (twice), Frutos del Mar Seafood and Tequila Restaurant in Tulum Section. Everyone loved Tequila's, not complaints. Mixture on the others some of the courses, but overall everyone was happy. My first choice is Dolce Vita because of the service. The head waiter Baldemar ran a professional operation there. the highlight of Dolce Vita is not the food, which is great, but the server Alejandro. The guy is great, extremely personable, friendly and warm, on top of being a fabulous server. The Arlequin server brought a cake out for our friends anniversary, a welcomed surprise for all of us. Jonathan, the server at Tequila's a gem. Jorge is Guest Services very helpful in arrangements. Joel at the Front Desk went out of his way to assist us. Malendy (probably spelled wrong) in Tequila/Cigar Shop truly friendly. A great vacation for three couples. If we wanted to, we could find faults and dwell on them, but we didn't. We didn't let minor concerns interfere with the outstanding service we were receiving from the entire staff, especially the trolley drivers. For the dollars spent this was an very outstanding week in Mexico. Remember, while tips maybe included, please don't let that stop you from rewarding good service. Tipping goes a long way, and encourages greater service, The servers quickly realized that our group provided tips, though rather small by America standards, are they tried even harder to please us. My wife and I will be returning here in the future. To the management, Jose and Alejandro are assets to your Resort. Please acknowledge them for this positive review.

We recently returned from Luxury Bahia Akumal (last 2 weeks of September2021) We have been to this resort complex chain well over 20 times, mainly staying at their flag ship hotel Sian Kaan which was closed, We were so happy to return and we have two other trips booked already one for celebrating New Years and then in May 2022 were we hope to meet many repeat guest that were to join us in September but had to cancel due to COVID restriction The hotel was probably only 25% full which resulted in some of the restaurants were closed and it became difficult for some, to experience the various foods and experience, Having said that I would suggest that as restrictions improve for travel the hotel complex will get back to the highest standard offering full service to their guest. We met many of the staff which we got to know well, over the many visits we have made to this complex. All of the staff were so happy to see us again and their service was just as good or even better than pre COVID. They are some changes which repeat guest will most likely like to know 1- the Sian Kaan beach is now for Coba guest. The pier was washed out due a hurricane 2- I was informed the new Sian Kaan beach will be where the Premier beach was and they are removing many of the rocks to make it good for their guest. Not 100% sure if this is true but most likely is the case 3- repairs are in progress and I suspect will be completed by our May 2022 return 4- no longer can you get an alcohol drink at the 24 hour snack bar after 11 pm closing. Was not an issue for us , but I am sure some guest will feel negative to this. 5- the miniature alcohol drinks in the room have been stopped. I found this a down grade especially for the quiet folks like myself who liked to have a drink before going for dinner or on my return to our room after 11 pm. I would hope this is corrected as it really was a nice gesture making the complex a true 5 star resort for adults. 6- I tried to find out if Sian Kaan will have again the special repeat guest party. No one was sure but I do believe it was a bonus especially for those who have been many times to meet up which many of the repeat guest. 7- All of the grounds were as before being kept spotlessly clean 8- the trolley service was as usual running with 100% efficiency. Who ever is the head of this needs to be congratulated for such an excellent service. 9- we saw and excellent show at Tulum resort called Origen. It had acrobatics and yes it cost $5 US per person but what a show and I would strongly suggest anyone visiting if they have the opportunity to see , to do so 10- their was little to no sea weed during our visit and it maybe at the time of our visit but this was good to see. 11-we enjoyed on our last night dinner at the Tequila restaurant in Bahia Tulum. This is a must if you like trying Mexican food. Thanks to the manger Eduardo who took his time to walk us through the restaurant explaining all the various foods 12- the new Indian restaurant should be on your list to try. If you like spicy food then add this to your program. 13- the weather was excellent They are many of the staff that I could point out that made our holiday enjoyable. However, I decided to do this direct to the hotel rather on Trip advisory. For return guest , I believe you will enjoy the hotel complex just as before even though some of the changes maybe temporary. We thank all the staff for their wonderful service and friendliness and we look forward in seeing you very soon again To some of the guest of the hotel. If you want to enjoy your holiday and you get excellent service from the hard working staff, show your appreciation for their service, it will go a long way. You will be awarded in your heart. I am sure you do it in your own country if you got good service. Looking forward to returning and meeting all of the workers / repeat guest again Stephen and Barbara from Canada

We spent NYE in the hotel. It must say, they made a very lovely evening and the message was lovely considering the current worldwide situation. It was very touchy evening. Spa and hairdresser - super service. My sister and I spent most of the day and our hair dresser - Karla - was super cool. Opportunity to go to Tulum hotel - this was really nice to change the environment. Rooms could be improvement. At the last day of our stay we have issued with the air con, as per today some of our stuff have the small of the air con. Staff from December 26 to December 31st - staff was super friendly, always smiling and asking to all parties at the table. On January 1st, it seems there was a change of staff and there were not as friendly as previous one. In a table of 2 men and 3 women, they only addressed to the men...... this was really terrible. Spa and hairdresser - super service. My sister and I spent most of the day and our hair dresser - Karla - was super cool. Food - it was more addressed to Canadian / American style. there is some room for improvement specially in the bread selection. There is more than Pan Bimbo or Wonder ;-)
