Family-friendly Caribbean beach complex combines three resorts into one
The Bahia Principe in Riviera Maya consists of three hotels, a commercial center and an entertainment center. The complex is surrounded by beaches, Mayan ruins and the second largest coral reef in the world. The complex boasts an environmentally conscious mindset, 11 international restaurants, 18 bars, seven pools, including a river-type and lake-type swimming area, Jacuzzis, gyms, kids clubs and spas. The complex is removed enough from the hustle and bustle to feel secluded, yet close enough to partake in all the Yucatan highlights.
Highlights:
  • Environmentally conscious
  • Tons of on-site activities including a kids club
  • Three resorts in one
Rooms:
Expect bright, fun rooms in colors such as teal, yellow, red and royal blue. Each room features two full beds or one king bed, air conditioning, satellite TV and direct-dial telephone. The junior suite superior also includes a living area, sofa bed, balcony, hydromassage tub and three a la carte dinners in the specialty restaurants. The junior suite club golden includes VIP bathroom amenities, 24-hour room service, evening turn-down, private reception, four a la carte dinners and Internet access in the Casa Club.
Features:
Families enjoy traditional sports on site including tennis, aerobics, soccer, basketball, volleyball, bicycling, darts, mini-golf and ping-pong. One hour of non-motorized water activities including snorkeling, kayaking, catamarans, boogie boards and windsurfing classes are also part of the all-inclusive package. For a fee, diving tours, scuba lessons, fishing trips, jet skis and parasailing are available. Guests at the resort also gain access to the Riviera Maya Golf Club, designed by Robert Trent Jones II. The course features 36 holes (18 available) surrounded by jungle landscape and natural lakes. If you're looking for relaxation, book an appointment at the spa (fees apply) and enjoy a hot stone massage, body exfoliation, body wrap or hydrotherapy spa circuit.

Family vacation

The Grand Bahia Principe Tulum was a very nice resort. The rooms were always kept very clean and anything you needed was there . The only thing is that the beach has the wave breakers in the water so when you go in unless you go past them the water is only up to your thighs. Also we went to 2 restaurants while there from the 9th to the 14th of January and the food was ok but not what was expected. The food was ice cold in the Mediterranean restaurant . The flavor was good but better if it was at least warm. The entertainment is not worth watching . The company should invest in putting on a real show at their resorts. If you want to relax , lay on the beach, or by the pool and drink,then this is for you. The buffet restaurants were great. Overall I would go back there.

Beautiful Mexico

Loved everything. The ac didn't work as well as it could but it didn't bother me. Excellent location in the heart of all the excursions and shopping you can do. Several trips to Mexico and this one was the greatest location. Beach pictures a little deceiving bc they leave the seaweed in the beach and the man made breakers are a bit of an eyesore but it didn't take away from our time.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the bus instead of taxis to local excursions like Tulum and Playa DSL Carmen for shopping. $3-4 a person instead of a $25 taxi fare. Safe and friendly!

Extremely average

Nice beach and a few nice pools. Large property so there's lots of places to walk around. Plenty of restaurants and bars and transport around the property. Cons: butlers don't really do anything, restaurants are all full for reservations, beach chairs are always taken on pool and beach, buffet food is mediocre, front desk staff is slow and not able to do much.

Great couple trip

Was a great trip and resort was just perfect. A lot of choices at the buffet with the special for Xmas. Staff was super friendly and always there to help. Pool and beach activities were well organized. Easy commute between the different hotel lobby's with the shuttle. Will definitely plan to return with kids as it looked safe and kids friendly.

Middle of the pack

I'll just give Pros/Cons of this hotel/report: Pros 1. Located in a very warm part of the world so a great place to vacation in the winter months 2. Lots of food choices at the resort's dining facilities 3. Well stocked fridge inside your room that is replenished daily without any additional charges 4. Cute little scavengers running around the resort. They look a bit like raccoons but cuter/friendlier. 5. Great magic show 6. Trolleys are everywhere that take you between the various parts of the resort which is broke up into multiple "cities" Cons 1. Very uncomfortable bed - the mattress was very unforgiving - not soft at all. 2. Noise - not sure if the walls were too thin or what but we were constantly hearing the neighboring rooms or people outside or the constant hum of trolleys going by. 3. Although there was a lot of variety in food choices at the buffet, often I was surprised how lukewarm (or cold) many things were that are traditionally served very warm/hot. You learn quickly to look for trays that'd been brought out recently to give yourself the best chance of having a warm serving. 4. Towels/wash clothes/hand soap/etc - often our towels wouldn't be replaced or we'd be left with a single towel despite us having 2 of us in the room. One of the days we reported this (repeatedly) to the customer relations department but we never received any towels. 5. Tip pressure - it states in the promotional material for this resort that all tips already included in the base cost but there was some pressure to tip, even though they don't come right out and ask for it.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

We went to many of their shows but only found their magic show worth seeing. The others were mediocre at best.

Wonderful Complex and Great Value

My partner and I stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Coba complex for 11 days. This was our first trip to Mexico and we will definitely return - probably to this complex. It has everything we look for in a winter sunshine holiday. We were upgraded to a Junior Suite in the Premier area of the complex and loved the balcony with our view of one of the swimming pools and the gardens and the jacuzzi bath was such a treat. The complex is pristine, with lots of staff constantly cleaning the apartments as well as the public rooms,trimming the lawns and gardens, cleaning the restrooms, swimming pools etc. Staff are very friendly and polite - although not always fluent in English, but love when guests try out their Spanish with them. We really enjoyed our visit to the Gourmet restaurant but perhaps the other specialised restaurants could provide a better experience. Food is available 24/7 - either in the buffet restaurants or the cafeteria. Evening entertainment is varied and fun and it is just magic to sit outside in the evenings wih a Margarita or a Mohito, listening to music or dancing, with Christmas trees all around the complex! Highly recommended!

First Class All The Way

My husband and I stayed at the Bahia Principe Akumal Luxury Beach Resort for Thanksgiving week, we had access to all 4 resorts including all gourmet restaurants, buffets, shows and activities. We have stayed at Riu Palace resorts and many others but this place this one we place in the same category as the Excellence Luxury Resorts. The premium drinks were great! The food at the buffet was a work of art with a great selection to choose from. The specialty restaurants were terrific. All the fish and seafood was so fresh, the seasoning, sauces and presentation, not to mention the taste, was some of the best we have ever had! You do need to make reservations but they do not limit you to how many gourmet restaurants you may book! There are small shuttles that come right by your room and take you to any of the 4 resorts, we loved the staff as well, just so helpful and kind. We are talking with our family about going back with a group next year!

As soon as you check in, book your specialty restaurants, one for each night. You can always cancel one if something comes up but it is difficult to get the times you want if you wait
