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.

Have a great time Youl l love it I've been Jamaica, Dominican, Cuba .. MEXICO ticks the boxes for me, changed over the years this hotel when I first came you could literally bounce between all three coba tulum and akumal now your kinda restricted but trust me akumal is boring ! Tulum great and cobra good for kids in the day go over there! Also good adult entertainment! Wink If your a teenager! Guys I've been there when I was 17 amazing times so many people you meet on your nights out and in the day! Trust me there are party's all the time! Head to the club and follow the after party! Also here for my 21st I'd grown up a little bit, more mature say ?! Amazing, wow catch my drift. Great skinny dipping in the sea at 3 am ! For 14 nights ! Now I'm older - and settled. House- bills enjoy it!

Great Vacation

Beautiful resort. Employees were very friendly and service was good. As usual at these kinds of places, the buffet food was plentiful but bland, and reservations for the other restaurants were virtually impossible to get. We did get one for 10 pm at a place in Coba but that was too late, both for eating and enjoying. They were cleaning up and closing down as we were eating. Keeping track of the hours of the various bars and restaurants was like a job, but there was always something available somewhere. Our room was on the 3rd floor in building 35. Location was pretty convenient, and we had a view of the water. There were a lot of rocks in the water at the beach, but it got better if you walked down a ways. Never had a problem finding chairs on the beach or by the pool.

Holiday Of A Life Time

the grand Bahia Principe Tulum is an amazing hotel, which offers facilities for all the family. I went with 7 other people and everybody believed that is was an excellent holiday.however the rooms, I believe were very poor and were very old fashioned, nothing like the pictures. we were moved rooms after 2 nights because of a leak through the roof.overall we had an amazing time, although the rooms were not satisfactory.

Good place to visit

Very good place for a family vacation. Huge priperty with lots of condos, restaurants and bars. I have been to around 15 different bars in the resort but i must say the bar next to our room at a diamond bar had the best bartender bamed Eulises. Some of the pools bartenders i wasnt a fan of but Eulises made our stay very enjoyable. I have overlooked minor resort issues because of how he made us feel. Great worker and a great guy,

I have traveled for the pas 26 years, by far this was the worst experience ever. At first we were put in a room on ground level with misquotes and roaches. After numerous complaints two days later we were moved to a newer building, guess what ? NO AC!!! Yes no AC. Called the front desk during the day and night, stopped by the lobby we were told it will be fixed. One day i was told manager will come to see the problem guess what after 2 hrs of waiting no one came!!!!Upon arrival told them its my sons birthday to please decorate our room, was told to remind day before. So i did day before day of, NOTHING HAPPENED!!!!Lobby--- limited sitting area, no bar. So when you need a drink while enjoin the WIFI you need to step outside of that area to get a drink.One bar tender at each bar so imagine the wait for your drink. One day ordered white russian was told no milk, and he is not going to get it!!!!!Beach very narrow, rocky and lots of sea weeds so can't enjoy swimming in the ocean.If not the weather and friend that we came with this would haven not been a great vacation.I WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO ANYONE!!!
