Best vacation ever!!!

My husband and I just celebrated our 20th anniversary here and we are sold for good! Everything from the food, the rooms, the pools, the drinks, the staff more than met all of our expectations! In fact, neither one of us was ready to leave after the 5 days were over! A big shout out to Neyfi, Maria, Victor and Roberto for making this the absolute best vacation ever! We will definitely be returning as soon as possible!

Great vacation!

The hotel was absolutely beautiful. All the staff was so friendly. Any staff walking by, working outdoors, or driving the shuttles past us all would smile or say hola. It was very welcoming. The bartenders were wonderful, the drinks were just right and definitely flowing. Not watered down and not too strong. I felt that the staff at the night time entertainment, the a la carte restaurants, the snack bar and around the pool frequently checked on us and other guests to make sure we were ok on drinks! The pool and the beach were never crowded. I felt that regardless of the time of day, there were many open seats left. Yes, many people would come down and reserve their spots with their beach towels or belongings, but that made no difference at all. The beach was also extremely clean. There was some seaweed, especially in the mornings, but the staff was also working hard to clean it all up. We were hoping to have some waves to body surf in the water, but I guess due to the resort’s location in Mexico, barrels and rope had to be put up to block them from coming in. The buffet was good, nothing spectacular, a lot of selections to choose from. Breakfast buffet I enjoyed much better than the dinner buffet. Room service was also okay. There wasn't many options of food to choose from, but it was still good to eat. They would say the food would be ready in 45 minutes or less, but not even 10 minutes after hanging up, there’d be a knock on your door. We did have reservations at one of their a la carte restaurants. The food was excellent and I feel they really hit the nail on the head with the Italian cuisine! We were able to make our reservations and were the only ones in the restaurant for about 20 minutes or so. We went to the Hacienda twice during our stay, once to play at the casino and once to explore and go shopping. The casino wasn’t as busy as we had expected it to be. It was a little quieter than what we are used to, but we still had a great time. The only thing we wish was there is a craps table. I felt the items in the shops in the Hacienda were decently priced. The vendors were friendly enough to bargain with but not too pushy if you said no and walked away. This was my first time at Bahia Pincipe, but second all inclusive stay in Mexico. This resort was a beautiful, relaxing time, and catered to people of all ages. Would definitely recommend to others!

Felt like I was back in College

I have been to a few different all inclusive resorts and this by far was the worst. I know you are not supposed to compare or should not, but this place brought me back to college. In order to go from lobby to lobby you needed to hop on a trolly to get there. Staying at Akumal lobby which happened to be right on the ocean front, made it the farthest from everything. The food was mediocre, not too much I can say when you are cooking for thousands of people everyday. The drinks.. it really depended.. some bartenders were great, others were awful. I made have also had the worst tasting margarita in my life while there. It wasn't completely terrible, they did have a bunch of restaurant options, however some that we wanted were already booked until after we had to leave, which made it impossible to try. They also accommodated 20 people max to the restaurants, which really is nothing! One of the restaurants was a 20 minute trolly from our lobby. (thats how big this place is, while going 20 mph). The staffed genuinely were friendly, the Hacienda seems like the go to spot, not much entertainment throughout. I enjoy the shows/musicals, but I guess I can't compare to the other bahia principe's. I most likely wouldn't come back, just because this wasn't the right fit for me or my family, but I would definitely come back to Mexico!

Disappointed

I used to manage hotels for a living with Marriott Int and I have to say that while I felt the staff was very friendly, they did not have the power to take a service request into their own hands. I felt that they were not empowered to fix guest issues and that detracted from the overall experience. If issues were fixed on first contact or at all, I would have rated my overall stay much higher. The rooms themselves were tired and starting to show significant wear and tear and when the rooms were serviced daily, the service was not consistent and things were constantly missing.

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.
