Myself and my girlfriend visited GBP Tulum last year, we had the option between Tulum and Coba and we are so glad we pick Tulum. Cobs is where all the families seem to be situated and it does not have a beach so everyone from Coba had to come to Tulum anyway. We found the service to be exceptional and...

Ok so my hubby and I along with our 11 year old daughter stayed here from May 15-22 and we had a great vacation.BUT there were some things that bring the ratings down to the point that I wouldn't return. I'll start with the good Beach: yes there's seaweed but it's not the resorts fault. The staff bust their butts...

This is a massive hotel complex but each section looks much the same.food is good. Staff excellent. Room was clean and comfortable. I would have preferred something a little more intimate but for those who want a large hotel this is perfect. There were electric buses to take you around the resort if you didn't want to walk. It's right...

We really enjoy our vacation there, the staff is very kind and always trying to give you the best possible service. I strongly recommend this resort. The location is not great as is about 1.5 hours from Cancun but it is totally worth it. Great food and amenities.

This is our second time at the Tulum. We learned that the Akumal is no longer a part of the Coba Tulum resort. It is exclusive. You can upgrade for 30 USD per night per person or pay 15 USD per person for the day. I spoke to one guest who said it was cheaper to book the Akumal online...

Just got back from a two week stay at the tullum. Had a fantastic time read a few reviews before we went about people criticising the buffet restaurant there's plenty of choices and the food is great, these people must have a wide choice of meals at home for dinner. Thought the bars could have stayed open till 12 o'clock...
