Absolutely love this place!

This is a beautiful resort! The staff are wonderful! The beach and pools are gorgeous! The shuttle ride from the Cancun airport takes a little while, but it's well worth it! We love this place so much that we stayed 2 years in a row. With so many other options, this is a huge testament to how perfect this is!

Absolutely love this place!

Never had such great food at an all-inclusive!

We've stayed many times at all-inclusive Resorts. This is by-far the best food we've had. I loved the app in the phone so that I didn't have to wakeup early in the morning to make reservations at the Al La carte restaurants. This also helped us to many other things agenda for the day, MAPS, and room service. The service was great everywhere! Lobby bar, cabanas, pool bar, and especially the restaurants!! My husband LOVED the Casino! (which is never mentioned on the website, but should) We booked a Oceanfront Jr Suite. The location was amazing! 15 steps from the lobby. I can't wait to book this resort again for next year!

We were charged a charge to our room that we should have not been. Then at check out they held us hostage and we missed our ride to the airport. In the meantime I had to pay the charge so I wouldn't lose my flight back home and rent a vehicle. It cost me overall way to much money afte that issue and the resort did not care

What's to Love

The beach at Luxury Bahia Principe Akumal is wide and long, and the beach bar and swim-up bar are perfect for grabbing a refreshing drink.

 

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

Thanks to the perks of an all inclusive resort, there's plenty of things to keep you busy. For those who just want to relax, there's a fabulous beach!

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.
