Bahia Akamul resort was fantastic

Staff and facilities were excellent! Couldn’t ask for a better resort with attention to detail. Staff went out of there way to make your stay memorable! Food at buffets and restaurants was excellent.

Resort was great, cheap Carib not so much

The resort was nice. Very clean, nice and well maintained. Rooms are a little outdated but in decent shape. We usually don't like resorts that have dinner reservations but Bahia Principe had an easy reservation process, mainly because we reserved for early evening. We reserved an ocean front, so we got a room in an ocean front building. However, the view was blocked by a tree. I talked to the front staff and they offered another room that will open up 3 days later, not really convenient. I spoke to the cheap Caribbean representative on site, she said it's not something she could change. So i explained that I would need a refund for the ocean front upgrade for the the 3 nights which I get to look at a tree, of course she had the quick we don't refund answer. Bottom line, I didn't care much to make that ruin my vacation, but after 6 years this will be the last time I'll use cheap Caribbean. I paid for ocean front and they handed me a tree and a "go pack sand" attitude. Adios cheap Caribbean, see you again next year mexico.

Poor service

We went with our 2 daughters and there families. One daughter had some bugs in there bed I reported to front desk they did not take it seriously after 3 times to desk I ask for a manager while waiting for the manager a supervisor came to speak to us she said they could sleep in the room tonight then get a new room the next day. When the manager came we told him that was not going to work we at this thought it might be bed bugs. After seeing a picture of the bugs he told us it was not bed bugs it was ants ask the the supervisor to meet housekeeping at the room. She told us she would meet them in 20 minutes. There was a language barrier with hose keeping. She never showed up when we found the manager and talking to him about her never showing up she walked in to conversation and said that she handled it when we asks her if she went to the room her answer was she handled and roiled her eyes at us. Our other daughter was leaving seafood restaurant and started to have a asthma attack her husband ask the staff at the premier hut if they would drive them to their room in the golf cart they refused 2 time on the 3rd time after getting angry and loud the did. So this show me that they are willing to put money over another guest health.

Good Resort- Rooms need Attention

Overall property is good, excellent food, friendly staff., great entertainment. The rooms need a lot of attention. It seems they don’t have much time to clean or Maintain the rooms but exterior and grounds are very clean. Many things broken in room and cleaning issues mostly with bedding. Once reported, most issues were resolved. The beds are super hard and appears they need to be replaced. Offered a different room but saw same problems there as well so I choose to stay in original room as I didn’t want to waste any more time. Overall, Good Resort! I would give it 5 stars if the beds were in better condition. Had a fun vacation with family!!

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.
