My family of five and another family of 4 stayed at the Bahia Principe Tulum March 9. Everything was excellent except for the dolphins in captivity in a very small pool with only a depth of 10 ft and no shade for the 5 male dolphins. I took my 3 and 5 year old to show them what it looks...

My husband and I had a wonderful 6 night stay at the Grand Bahia Príncipe Tulum. There was always so much to do with all the sport activities, a jam packed agenda, and then the tours that are offered.

One of the three resorts that make up the Grand Bahia resorts in Akumal. Excellent facilities and food throughout the resorts. Staff are courteous and attentive. The rooms are modern and extremely clean. The resort is close to the town of Akumal and not far from Tulum and Playa del Carmen. It is ideally suited in the Mayan Riviera.

We received outstanding dining room service from Gumercindo. He should be commended for his attentive, friendly service. We ate at the Japanese,...
