Better options for the money

First and prob last time I will go to Bahia Akumal. First, the new adult pool was great. Our room was right next to the pool so it was nice and convieniant. The AC was almost non exaistant so it was hard to sleep in comfort. I have been to much nicer beaches a water in Cancun so the overall 3 rating. Zero wow factor. The booze and bars were top shelf. No complaints with quality or service. The food was another issue. If you do not belong to the time share program they have and wear a black wristband forget about ever eating at an alacart restaurant. Forget about it it's not going to happen. We were subjected to Buffet every single night which the food never changed and it was the same thing every night I probably will not be back because there are much or just as nice places much closer to the airport and closer to PDC then the Bahia and having stayed at other all-inclusives in the past had no problems with alacart restaurants the biggest negative was the restaurants and food

Overall a very good resort for the money

Rooms, service and food were all very good. There was some confusion about dress codes at certain restaurants but the food itself was very good. I have stayed at other resorts that left me with diarrhea within the first few days but had no issues whatsoever at Bahia Principe. I was disappointed to find that most pools closed at 6pm and there are no pools at all that remain open at night if you wanna go for a dip after dinner. Like most resorts I have stayed at, the beer could be colder but the alcohol selection was quite impressive for an all inclusive. I will definitely return

All about the service!

It's the service that really sets this resort apart. The entire time we were there, every single employee seemed happy and did their job with a smile on their face. We even had to call maintenance about the AC on the day we arrived. I am sure he didn't speak much English, but the smile on his face left a great impression. The resort is large and very well-kept. We were in building 47 and it was a fantastic location, just a few minutes walk to the adults-only infinity pool and the lobby and main pool were right next door. At first I thought I would be disappointed in this block, but ended up being great. The rooms are all good sized with decent layouts. Bathrooms are well equipped with good lighting, decent mirrors and fine water pressure. We had a connecting room, as my sister and her husband joined us, and it was a big French double door that we were able to open/close...nice feature. Buffets were well stocked and had a ton of variety. If you can't find something to eat, then you're just not hungry. Dinner a la cartes we went to were Dolce Vita (Italian) and wonderful, the waiter really made it fun. Frutos Del Mar (seafood) maybe my least favorite, but still very good. Arlequin (gourmet) excellent and Los Corales (Brazilian) also very, very good. Drinks flowed all day, and the 24 hour snack bar was nice. Room service menu is a bit limited, but how many choices do you really need at 1am? LOL Beaches are a bit rocky, but the sand whales they have in place make the water swimmable, otherwise there would be no getting in the ocean. It was kind of cool because you could see fish swimming around in the calm areas. The Hacienda was fun at night, getting a drink and wondering around in the shops. Tried the Casino and quadrupled my money! That never happens. The trams getting you here and there was great, never had to wait over a minute or two. Overall, it's a fantastic resort and I would highly recommend.

Fantastic friendscation

We had the pleasure of staying at the Bahia Principe Akumal. This was based on a little research beforehand. It is part of a collection all on the same property. It was worth every penny. The food was really good at all of the restaurants. There is something for everyone regardless of taste preference. As for the staff, they were superb. Having been to pther all inclusives, the staff here is hard to compare to. Be it the bellhop, customer service, bartenders, or event staff; everyone was a delight to deal with. Our group really enjoyed the activities directors. Everything from pool side zumba to aquarobics and daily competitions. The activities crew grew to know is and made our trip truly special. The pools were well maintained and all the equipment was washed down nightly. The pools and beaches were mainted everyday and well grromed. The grounds were well kept and added to the beauty of the Mexican landscape. Having the tram system to transport people from location to location was a great bonus. La Hacienda was a blast. Between live shows, live music, karaoke, and dancing. It was a place we ended up almost everynight. Following whatever event was planned for the night, the disco opens up for the night. Although it was hot out, this place was a great little club. Modern music, awesome dancing and of course more drinks included.

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive, beachaliscious blast for the whole fam.

The Eco-Bahia foundation - you can join in the release of baby sea turtles after they hatch.

Snorkeling in Akumal - it's the world's second largest (read: ahh-mazing) coral reef.

Unwinding as you get a soul-pleasing massage with hot stones.

 

What We'd Change

The hotel is an hour from the airport, but one glimpse of the beach, and it's worth the trek. You'll love being tucked away between a green mangrove jungle and the turquoise Caribbean.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 60 minutes from the airport. Patience is key. You'll smell the salt of the sea soon.

You have access to both Grand Bahia Principe Coba and Tulum. Lots of bang for your buck.

Your little young 'uns can have fun in the sun all day at the kid's water park.

There are water sports, aerobics and a gym to keep your beach bod in tip-top shape.
