Our Opinion

The Grand Bahia Principe Tulum is a nice family-oriented property with a 1km long sandy beach. Popular with couples and families, this resort offers good service and food along with tons of activities. The Bahia Principe complex is home to 3 resorts, the Tulum as well as the Grand Bahia Principe Akumal and Grand Bahia Principe Coba, so guest have access to lots of facilities. The Bahia Principe Resorts are a great choice for singles, couples and families looking for a memorable Riviera Maya vacation.


You'll fall in love with this modern, spacious Mayan Paradise, perched on an all natural snow white bed of soft sand. Beautifully designed by a prestigious Mexican architect with all the warmth of Mexican tradition and built with materials such as stone, talavera pottery, marble, large palapas, and hardwood. Enjoy the Mexican-style commercial and entertainment village of Hacienda Dona Isabel for great shopping and fun filled evenings of entertainment. The Grand Bahia Principe Tulum is a fantastic relaxing getaway for everyone.

Fabulous Resort, Poor Food Safety

This is a fantastic place to visit, for a relaxing get away. Great rooms, lots of activities, daily entertainment and outstanding Buffet restaurant. BUT.............the 24 hour snack bar is a concern. A group of us booked at this hotel for my daughter's wedding. The night before the wedding, my daughter and 4 friends went over to the 24 hour snack bar. They had hamburgers. Unfortunately, 3 of them were vomiting in the middle of the night.........including my daughter (bride)..........and the other 2 didn't feel well for 2 days. Luckily, my daughter felt better by noon, the next day. When I reported this to the front desk to a guy named Victoriano, he simply said "are you sure she wasn't sick because maybe she drank too much?" These people at the front desk don't seem concerned about customer service. Would I go back to this hotel, yes.........but I would warn people to avoid the snack bar and expect average service from the front desk.

Our Dream Vacation!!!

From the day we arrived....till the day we left...we were pampered!!! The grounds are beautifully maintained...the pools and ocean were stunning. From the hotel staff, to the bartenders, wait staff, and couldn't ask for more friendly or welcoming people!! We loved every minute and hated to leave!! Looking forward to our next trip!!!

Excellent resort when reading up on the grand bahia principle you will see two one called tulum the othe cobra it's on the exact same resort but you pay more for stopping in the cobra. But tulum is the best one. You can visit both anytime as the resturants are split between both resorts. Trolly cart takes you around the resort day and night.. Plenty of entertainment day and night. Caters for all ages. Right on the beach which is very nice clean and long. Water sports of all types. Plenty restaurants some need to book in advance. If you want to adventure out lots of trips to go for. All tour operators on site or book with the hotel. Shop around with both as they compete with prices. There is a small hasienda at the Start of the hotel routes and have entertainment on plus market at night. Would highly recommend if you want to stop in this area.. one hour from the airport so we never went into Cancun. Oh dear that means I will have to go back lol enjoy

Would Definitely Go Back!

We stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Tulum resort from October 8-15, 2016. This resort was amazing!! They had very well kept and clean rooms, fridge always stocked and new towels! The food was delicious and we ate way too much!! The entertainment team blew us away there was a new activity every minute of the day it felt like awesome job!! Roberto you rock and thank you for the balloons for my boyfriends birthday, you seriously made our stay so awesome!!! I always felt like we had something to do at this resort. The resort is connected to the Coba as well which is pretty cool gives you more things to do and the trolleys are always coming around never had to wait to get somewhere! We cannot wait to go back to this resort!! I cannot say enough about this place serious it's just amazing!!
