At face value this place is very nice. But as you peel the layers it's not that great. The little things mean a lot. CHECK IN: Our room wasn't ready (totally fine) but they took our bags when we went to eat and then didn't deliver them for about an hour after we got to our room. That was a...

Amazing resort the visit. Amazing part of Mexico. Close to Playa Del Carmen. Rooms are super clean. Food is amazing. Drinks are amazing. Views are amazing. Room service and employees and nothing short of amazing. Tons of fish and sea life. Downsides: it was a bad year for sea-weed, but was bad across Mexico. They work very hard to control...

This was my fourth time back to Riviera Maya, first time at Grand Bahia Principe Tulum and I thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish! I wish I did this review right away or wrote down names because I forgot the front desk and manager names. But right when we arrived, the front desk managers greeted us and treated us like...

My husband and i have just returned from our 3rd trip. Once again excelente! Everything is so efficiantly run like a well oiled machine. The grounds are spotless as well as the rooms. Some people express the rooms need updating, but for us not an issue as we only use our room to sleep. We very much enjoy the Tequila...

We stayed here in November 2015. Could not fault this hotel we stayed in the hacienda section and it was lovely, you have your own pool, only people staying in that section are allowed to go in it and private breakfast area. It was a dream holiday and would go back in a heart beat. Staff were friendly, food was...

We stayed at Grand Bahia Principe Tulum all inclusive resort. The area we stayed in was very nice and a short walk to the main pool area, beach and restaurants. Had a relaxing stay. Visited Cozumel. Mayan Ruins and Playa Del Carmen. The sort was was very clean and the grounds were manicured. Pools and beach were great!

We returned 1 week ago from our third stay at this resort and honestly it did not disappoint. We are from England and we have already booked to stay here again next year. The grounds are stunning and everyone works so hard to keep the place looking like paradise. The pool areas are great, we loved listening to the music...

We travelled as two couples, we last came over 10 years ago with our daughter and loved it then. We stayed this time in the Akumal, could not complain about the room it was clean, big, and had everything you would need. The mini bar was stocked daily with soft drinks, 3 small bottles of spirits and some beer. The...

We went for the second time on a spur of the moment trip. In 2016 we did an extensive review and only rated four stars. The reason to bump it up to five is: -people genuinely remembered us -they accommodated a change for us to move to an upper floor -this place is as advertised -we made plenty of new...

We stayed for 10 days in April, we loved everything about it, very clean, very professional, Mexican people are beautiful, very friendly, and easy to talk to, loved the hacienda, very close, nice for shopping, and the Mayan show there was one of the best I have ever seen. We stayed at 1511, very close to the snack bar, pool...
