    We’re here now and hoping we can improve this rating! We booked with Tui and requested adjoining rooms. I emailed ahead 2 weeks ago and was told we would have them! We’re in block 75, in one room, my 6 foot son doesn’t fit in the child’s bed and neither of them had pillows last night! I’ve emailed guest services but had no response! It’s the poor lads birthday whilst we’re here he can’t sleep like this for 2 weeks. Any idea who to contact?

    Another holiday in paradise

    We have had a fantastic stay in the Luxury Akumal, we have stayed in this complex before, the point of difference staying in Akumal is that you can use the facility's in the other hotels and we did, every day we traveled whether it was for a drink to watch a show or a reservation Alacarte. We booked 9 Alacarte restaurants they were all really good but I would rate Alux in SIAN KA'AN as the top luxury. Having the coffee shop in Akumal has been superb the girls who work there are so friendly and the coffee and cakes are so nice, I bought a beaker from the shop to carry my coffee back to the room a game changer no more spilt coffee. We booked all the Alacarte restaurants when we arrived with Edmunda he was excellent gave good advice and was very patient with us understood we were tired after travelling. I went for my 6am coffee to Tikalito it was mainly Daniel who served me always smiling and happy to make the coffee to your liking. Paulino our waiter in the Don Pablo was exceptional. I wish I had written down more names but I can honestly say everyone is amazing here whether you are going to the reception desk to check in or getting a trolley bus to take you to another hotel or reservation the service 5* thank you Bahia Principe 😀 We will be back

    Best 11 night stay.

    From the moment we turned up at Bahia Principe Akumal we was welcomed with the friendliness of staff, warm welcoming and smiles off all of the staff there. The room was spotless and was cleaned everday and the mini fridge was stocked up everyday. The whole complex was kept to such an amazing standard whether it being the lobby, restaurants, the pool area, the gardens! The amount of wildlife there as well was just amazing , loved it ! The buffet restaurant had so much to choose from for each meals, room service was great with a good menu. We had the chance of having 11 al a cartes during our stay but we didnt use all of these. The seafood restaurant especially was amazing. We need to give a shout out to Edgar and Jose in the main buffet restaurant. They was there for breakfast and lunch and from the moment they seen us they greeted us with such a friendly smile which made a real difference to us. They both got our drinks whilst we got our food and we didn't need to say what we wanted as they already knew this. Just fab workers. Adelina from the pool bar was just amazing ensuring everyone around the pool had drinks, taking orders and taking these to people. She was always busy and so polite. Uvi from the tequila restaurant in Tulum was amazingly friendly, very informative about the restaurant and what its about. Great experience off him. Id highly recommend Bahia Principe Luxury Akumal and will definitely return

    A great week of vacation!

    Our recent one week stay was amazing as usual. We have been to this group of resorts many times and keep returning for numerous reasons. As Loyalty guests we are graciously allowed to use the facilities of all the resorts and enjoy areas and aspects of each. Our time spent at Akumal was enjoyable as always. We really appreciate the beach and pool beverage service. We tipped alot to these hard working women, as they have to trek around the beach in 35+ degree weather bringing drinks to guests. If you do get drink service, be sure to show them your appreciation! We did find the main pool quite warm by early afternoon due to the intense heat of the day, but we were able to cool off in the beautiful ocean just steps away. This section of beach is free of the Sargassum which is a nice reprieve from the other areas of the beach which are affected. Food at the main buffet is always amazing with a large variety of fresh made items and we always found something amazing to eat. One of the main reasons we keep returning to these resorts is the staff, the workers who welcome us to their home with open arms. From Housekeeping to maintenance, everyone wants you to have an enjoyable stay. We are so fortunate to have made connections with many staff, and would like to highlight a few: YUM Main Buffet Daytime server Eric: A genuine, friendly and professional server who treated us as if we were in his own home. No request was too much, and after our first day with him he knew everything we needed. He is a real asset to Bahia Principe and we look forward to seeing him again! YUM Main Buffet Evening server Patricia: Patricia is amazing with our family and is such a wonderful person. We arrived and she recognized us right away, immediately taking care of us. She is kind, attentive and caring and we cant wait to see her again.
