My wife and I stayed at Gran Bahia Principe Sian ka’an for a week at the end of January through Air Transat. This was our second stay at this resort. We were met by Brisa with a smile when
we checked in and she confirmed our dinning reservations that we had requested by email.
We booked a ground floor Jacuzzi room and it was fantastic. The room was huge with a nice king size bed with a seating and dining area. The bar fridge was filled with pop, water, beer and mini bottles of alcohol which was restocked daily. The bathroom was roomy with a large shower. We used the Jacuzzi about four times during our stay and found it very private since it is surrounded by vegetation.
The food at the resort is excellent. You have access to the two al a carte restaurants at Sian Ka’an as well as all the other al a carte restaurants at Tulum, Akumal and Coba. Our favourites are Alux, Miako, Le Gourmet, Arlequin and Don Pablo. Make sure you check out the buffet on Saturday night as it is the Gala seafood night.
The tram rides to the other lobbies and the beach come every 5 to 15 minutes, although depending on the time of day you can wait longer. The trip to the beach was under ten minutes. The beach area is ok and they spend a lot of effort keeping it clean.
The shows at night were entertaining as were the live band playing at the Hacienda. Also don’t forget to check out all the shops at the Hacienda during the day. The prices are comparable to the shops in Playa Del Carmen. Never tried the spa, but I talked with a couple who did and they really enjoyed it.
Special thanks to Mauricio and May May for keeping the room immaculate. My wife also really appreciated the fun towel art designs every day. All the staff worked hard and were always extremely friendly. Oscar and his two amigos from the entertainment crew, Alejandro and Eduardo, were very good at keeping everyone who wanted to join in entertained. In the day they had beach or pool games and at night they played games like blackjack or poker. Also I can’t forget Jesus at the pool bar or Leidy and Mary at the beach bar.
Overall we had an excellent vacation and will probably go back again.
