    Highly Recommend

    We had a great time at the Bahia Principe Akumal! Highly recommend the swim up room as it was very hot during our stay and the room was well ACd and the swim up pool made it worth the price. Had an amazing massage with Yacsuri and Kikey, get the deep tissue massage! Great drinks, food, and enviornment.

    Wonderful Memories

    Gabriel at Client Services was awesome. We arrived a bit concerned that we would miss our dinner reservations at Tulum’s Tequila Restaurant as we’d arrived a little late. Gabriel offered to pick us up and personally drove us to the restaurant. As we were a couple of minutes late he even went in with us to ensure that we had no issues with our reservation. Another wonderful staff member was our waitress, Rosario, at the Katuk Restaurant. She was so pleasant and provided excellent service and was always smiling. We ended up going there for lunch almost every day and made sure she was our server.

    Loved it!

    We loved this resort, it was fabulous! The pools were great, as were the staff and entertainment. The beach was lovely of not a little rocky in places but it was fine. The sea is beautiful. You can walk along the beach to BP Tulum, which is a bit nicer. Getting around the resorts on the little trolleys was fun, saved you walking in the baking heat! It was a little chaotic but you're on holiday, so just get there in plenty time and wait. Take a handheld fan as its ROASTING! The air conditioning in the rooms were great, nice and cool. Unfortunately the restaurants were unable to keep the rooms cool, with the type of fans/roofs they had so be prepared to sweat. (I wore my hair up every day, as it was too humid to have it down, so ladies, don't forget to bring a hair clip). Rooms are a little outdated but we didn't spend much time there, so no issues for us. We loved watching the Coatis scamper about from our balcony. Access to all the pools, bars and restaurants across the 4 resorts was the icing on the cake. (Make sure you book in at the times you want using the app in advance, outside you may not get in.) 5* dining every night in different restaurants... amazing!

    You won't regret coming here

    Best hotel and service i have ever stayed at. Would recommend in a hearbeat. Plenty of sunbeds. All inclusive offer is great. Bar staff will make you any drink. Staff are friendly and the a la carte restaurants are amazing. This is one hotel I would come back to.

    Not what I thought...

    I wasn't very impressed with this resort. The look of it when you get there looks amazing, but when we go to our room, the light by the bed was not working, there was a lack of lighting by the couch area, our safe was locked and the phone was not working to call out. We used our cousins phone to ask to repair the light, phone and safe. They said they would send someone. They fixed the light, but when someone came to fix the safe, they said they had to send someone else and no one came. They told us the phone was working, but it was not. We called again and they told us they would send someone and to wait there because we had to be in the room, but after an hour wasted, no one came and we had to go. I appreciate the experience concierge for escorting us to our room and making sure all the things got fixed, but it was already our last day. The food was ok. I am vegan and it was hard to communicate and get the attention of a chef to ask questions. The chef at the Sian Kian buffet was very nice and accommodating ...I give her 5 stars! She made me something special and asked if I needed anything, to bad I didn't meet her until the last day of my stay. The restaurants were hard to book, so you need to book even before you get to the hotel. There was a lack of air conditioning in the resort, especially in the restaurants that required reservations. I was melting, which didn't make my dining experience pleasant at all. The pools were also very hot, that may just be because of the weather but someone said they heated the pools...not sure if that's true. Tip: bring a cooling towel and fan if you get hot easily. They said this month was hotter than usual and more humid, but you walk everywhere and the golf carts helped, but you just go from hot to hot unless you stay in your room.
