    Fun for everyone

    Highly recommend fun for everyone from senior citizen to young adults the Beats were great the staff was excellent I felt like they truly cared about my experience. I would highly recommend to take a couple hours and explore the property and find all that it has to offer before you only go to One location every day

    A honest review :)

    Our second time back as a family of 4. The children were entertained at the many different pools you can use across the three resorts. The beach is beautiful and breezy so means you can sit in the sun mostly. The rooms are very dated but if you care more about the other (more important stuff), then this resort won’t disappoint. We barely spend time in rooms when we go away… - The buffet is good for breakfast and lunch. Plenty of choice though we found 12.30 lunch everything was hotter and it felt like busy. - A la cartes are excellent for the price you pay for AI. We booked all in advance via the App from the UK - ate in Ku-Uk (great), Tequilla twice (delicious), tortuga which is a great experience and delicious cuts of meat. Also Mediterranean (fine), Fruita del mar (great) and dolce vita which was good too. - The cafe is a nice touch with pastries available all day long, alongside nice coffee (inc ice coffee and fraps) - The kids club is hands down *excellent*. The staff immediately recognised my daughter who they’d looked after 2 years ago! They are so caring, energetic and incredibly organised. There is no sitting around watching telly, they’re on the go constantly but with lots of air con and shade. The evening shows they put on with the kids (at 8pm, so advisable to book early a la carte meals if you think your child will want to partake!) are so good. Little talent shows, a mini circus, frozen and Moana etc. On the stage! So lovely. - The golf buggies to go between resorts is a great touch and you soon get used to the routes. As well, there are enough pools and sunbeds for everyone. NEVER were we without and we were a group of 8 with our friends. Always got shade too. - the spa is lovely. My daughter had half a head of braids but I would recommend the massage hut beyond grand Tullum hotel as it’s more reasonable, and great. From the hotel we did two day trips this time (as did the Mayan ruins at Coba before); a cenote park which was epic. 4 cenotes in one area and access to all for around $50 pp. And snorkelling with turtles at AKUMAL which is a must. All in all, a lovely week of perfect weather and plenty to do. Would recommend for a mid range (it’s not luxury luxury) all inclusive with great food, decent and plentiful drinks (house wine is v drinkable).

    Pre arrival nothing works already! the app and the site just loop you!!

    I have a reservation for 5 days and 4 nights. I'm reading how important it is to make reservations in the restaurants that are ala carte. You can early check in and make restaurant reservations 10 days in advance. However, nothing works!! The app doesn't work, it says I'm already registered but I never registered. It won't accept the passport download on google chrome, finally I figure out to use help from the Bahia principe. I splurged and and made a reservation for the highest end of the resorts and the new modern room since we were there for such a short stay. We haven't even arrived and it has been unbearably frustrating!! I'm worried about what is to come. I made a nonrefundable reservation to get the lower price and knowing we were going no matter what. I'm worried this will be disorganized and a sham.

    Amazing time here!

    We've just returned from a family holiday here and I can say is what an amazing time we had! The staff at the hotel are fantastic. Everyone works so hard to give you the best holiday. Special mention to the kids club team who were wonderful with my daughter. The resort is clean, the rooms are comfortable and the aircon worked great. Drinks are fabulous and the food is tasty. Ku'uk was our favourite al a carte. The buffet was good, especially the breakfast! My only slight complaint is that there aren't nearly enough umbrellas at the pool and finding shade after 9am was hard. Overall though we had the best holiday we've had in a long time and we would definitely return to the Bahia Mexico resort. Thank you to all the staff!

    Easter holiday week 2024

    22nd visit to Bahia with family and enjoyed a restful Easter holiday at Akumal. Manager Carolina worked hard all week to check on us and assure we were enjoying ourselves. Dinners went well, always had a pool spot, and rooms were comfortable. Thanks Bahia family!
