Airtours (My Travel) trip to Bahia Principe Resort from UK

Hello,

I think this is allocation on arrival at any of the 3 hotels - can anyone clarify this please?

Also, wondered if anyone can advise which one of the 3 is the best (couple in early 30's with no children).

Thankyou

It is my understanding that those of you from the UK through Airtours are allocated at any of the three - in other words, you do not get to choose.

I was hoping that someone with definite info would chime in???...

Yes - that's correct.

Travellers from the UK do not find out which of the 3 Bahia's they are staying in until check-in.

Never ind, thanks anyway!!!

okay - now it makes sense (sorry, it's hayfever season).... any chance you can email the resort for a clue as to where you'll be?

Hi,

We are off to Gran Bahia Principe on the 18th of June through First Choice. They are the same as Airtours in that you only know when you arrive what section you are in, HOWEVER, I emailed the resort direct two weeks ago and requested Coba section and they replied saying that this would be accomodated, so if you decide which section you would prefer I would suggest you drop them an email and they may well be able to accomodate your request. At least I now know which section will will be in.

From what I can make out Tulum section is more expensive for pople booking from Canada and the US but this may not have any bearing on the UK?

Also freom what I can make out cobra only has family suites?

So if you get in this hotel and only paid for a standard room you are saving around £500. I didn't book a suite as I thought it ws to much money for the little time you spend in it!!! But would be glad of the extra space if it is free. So I'm going to request the cobra too!

Hi, we are travelling to the GBP in August have booked a junior suite through My Travel (Airtours).

In the airtours brochure it says that the Akumal has the junior suites, so we are presuming that we will be staying there - or, do the other hotels have junior suites as well?

While I'm here can someone give me the e-mail address for 'Ivan' at the Akumal, thanks very much.

I have enjoyed all the comments and advice given over the last few weeks and look forward to reading each new review as it comes in.

You Canadians seem very easily pleased - or are we British more fussy??!!

Akumal has suite's + normal room's Cobra is just suite's.

So I think you might get either of these but most people traveling with My travel are getting the Cobra no matter what they have booked!
