My Husband and I just got back from Bahia Principe Tulum in the Mayan Rivier. We had a great trip and this resort was defiantly up there with other 5 stars we stayed at before in Mexico.

we just arrived there, the hotel is great, the service is good and the people is very polite, nevertheless the beach is terrible, but the worst is that they invited you to a "special breakfast" to show you the services offered by the hotel and finally you fall in a great arnaque, because they almost force you to buy a...

Loved our stay the first time we came with our teenage boys and enjoyed it just as much as a couple! Loved the availability of drinking water. Make sure you visit Akumal beach and swim with the turtles. Just walk out to the main road and jump on the Collectivo (their busses which are 15 seat vans). Felt very safe...

So we got married at the GBP Tulum in February 2014 and the experience was great. The wedding planner was responsive and accomodating and the photo company that is exclusive to the resort was super friendly and professional. Our photographer was great! We also had a room with an amazing view (426) of the ocean. Some of the more disappointing...

First off, I want to say that I have been to many all inclusive resorts and this is the first time I have been really disappointed.

Having never stayed at a Grand Bahia resort before, we did not know what to expect and after spending the first week of our vacation at the Royal Suites Yucatan, well, we had about average expectations for this resort.
