Amazing!!!

Beautiful resort with so many options!!!! Don't let the size of the resort fool you, there is the easiest little shuttle system that gets you right where you need to be so fast! Loved the option to visit all parts of the resort, eat at the restaurants, etc. we got hit with a tropical storm while here and still had a great time. The staff was phenomenal! Super friendly and helpful always. Food was awesome so many options at restaurants and buffets. Highly, highly recommend this resort! Couldn't have chosen a better place to stay!

Pure Excellence!

The resort at Bahia Principe was a lovely and endearing experience for my family and I. The beaches were always clean and in well kept condition, and the pool was a relaxing environment to be in during the day. Relaxation was easily achieved no matter where we went in the resort. The food was quite delicious and never lacked in variety. Every day provided a different and new taste from the many types of food there was to choose from. The staff were wonderful and very kind. If it weren't for them, the experience at the resort surely wouldn't have been the same! Overall my family and I am pleased to say that going to Bahia Principe was an unforgettable experience and that the time spent there was worth it.

Great resort !

Bahia Principe Akumal was a great resort! We loved almost everything about it! We loved the pools, the beach, the restaurants both ala carte & buffet! They are committed to service and went out of their way to make sure the guests were happy! Our rooms were in a great location close to the infinity pool and beach. It was an easy walk to the lobby & restaurants or you could just hop on the trams to get you wherever you wanted to go! It's very easy to go between all four Bahia resorts! They have also created areas on the beach for snorkeling which was a real pleasure. This resort is a great value and we can't wait to go back! We hope that the air conditioning is improved to be cooler in the rooms before our next visit but the ceiling fans kept it bearable for sleeping and it won't keep us from returning here for another vacation! We definitely felt that we made the right decision when choosing the Luxury Bahia Principe Akumal resort for our vacation!

Sunrise at akumal! A great place to wake up on vacation! View from our room!

Fantastic deal in paradise

Never been to the Mayan Riviera before. But I can't wait to go back. The Bahia at Akumal is more remote and a distance from Cancun. Be prepared for an hour and 45 minute drive from the Cancun airport to the resort but it is worth it. Staff are phenomenal- ask and it Will be yours. Housekeeping, front desk reception, bartenders, tour guide excursions restaurant staff are all pretty great. Be sure to tip when you arrive : favorite bartender once a day, waiter at dinner, bellhop, oom service server. The dollar goes a long way there. I like being at Akumal because there were so many restaurant choices. Be sure when you arrive to make all your reservations for dinner because they book up fast. I like being at Akumal even though I was there for an anniversary celebration with my husband. Akumal is family-friendly but there are plenty of private adult beaches and pools. You won't be disappointed. More options at akumal vs other resorts located in the Don Pablo collection however you can go to the other properties and eat and use their facilities. They're so close it's a tram ride away. Or just a walk up the beach -- a pretty good deal. evening entertainment is pretty good too. Top shelf liquors at the bars. I love this resort. It is so clean and well-maintained. You're always see people sweeping,mopping cleaning making minor repairs landscapers at work. I'm a believer. Go and visit. Tons of Western Europeans at resort site.

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.
