Hotel Description

Luxury Bahia Principe Akumal Resort: Experience All-Inclusive Options

When you choose Luxury Bahia Principe Akumal, you'll get three resorts for the price of one! This all inclusive resort, located along a .93 mi stretch of Caribbean beach in the Mayan Riviera, is part of a three-hotel complex, so you enjoy more pools, bars and restaurants, as well as a commercial center and Hacienda Dona Isabel entertainment center.

Surrounded by trees, natural vegetation and iguanas, the pool area offers secluded sunbathing and plenty of lounge chairs, or you can relax on the hammocks beneath thatch-roofed palapas and let the ocean waves lull. Don't miss swimming with dolphins at the Dolphinarium, a great spot to snap memorable vacation photos. Or drop the kids at the Mini Club, while you relax with a hot-stone massage in the beachside Bahia Spa.

If you crave more action, try windsurfing lessons, take a jet ski ride or snorkel in the world's second-largest coral reef. Golfers love the state-of-the-art course designed by Robert Trent Jones, II, available to all guests of the Luxury Bahia Principe Akumal Resort. Catch a show at the Hollywood Theatre, or brush up on your merengue and salsa moves before you shake your tail feathers at Rancherita Disco.

After working up an appetite, head to Dolce Vita Restaurant, one of the resort's four restaurants, for sumptuous steak alla gorgonzola. Prefer to keep it casual? Stick to Riviera Buffet for a wealth of options at the themed dinners. The six bars offer everything from mimosas at the swim-up bar to martinis at the piano bar. Need a late-night snack? Aquarium Snack Bar is open 24 hours, with plenty of fast-food options.

At the end of your action-packed day, retreat to your room or suite and enjoy a nightcap on a private balcony or terrace. The guest rooms are located inside three-story villas, featuring Caribbean decor, and include a mini bar replenished daily with soft drinks, water and beer.
