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.

Fab holiday no regrets.

Just recently stayed at tulum resort with my wife for 14 nights. Second time in Mexico and the best resort we've been to infact it was that good that we going to book the akumal side for next year as we get more of a choice of restaurants and facilities. Everyone was so friendly from start to end. The don pablo gourmet is the best place we have ever eaten and like to mention the first class service from Miguel. The whole resort is very clean and always clean and all the staff are very good at their jobs. The waitress girls in bar akumal every night were very friendly and smiley and always made sure you had a drink. The resort in a whole is so nice and good and can't thank you all enough for the best holiday we've had.

so so

watch out for the shuttles, bikes and trucks driving along the walkways they will run you off the walkways into the grass. stay away from time share salesmen in the lobbies they promise short sales pitch and better food all lies. then when you say no they will leave you stranded and you will have to find your own way back to your lobby. this was my sixth resort in 6 years I will not return at all.

Excellent service and experience

An excellent resort, word of some exclusive areas can be off putting, but if you're happy like us to be one of the regular average joe holidaymakers not looking for the embroidered towels and private decked white linen pergola you'll be delighted with this place.The attention to detail here is a credit to all the very hard working staff, from the guys to rake the sand, to the staff that serve the drinks and prepare the food.A shout out to Francisco, and Rosalia in the Tulum buffet always extremely polite and such fun, Gonzalez and Edwin in the Tequila day time who have nailed it and looked after us all day, and our special lady Aurora from the lobby bar who was exceptional.The food was very good, and the choice of a'la carte restaurants helped to break up the monotony of going to the same place every day for dinner.All four of us preferred something different as our favourite meal, so there wasn't one really stand out evening that I could say was absolute best.Rooms lovely and clean, cleaner and mini bar guy were great and replenished everything every day, bed comfort, our thoughts were mixed, as it has a memory foam topper, I did get used to it but the couple we travelled with thought it to be too soft, we all did sleep well though, however it did show my mattress up when I got home, it felt like a rock!This place is massive, some of the touches were borderline obsessive (hotel logo imprint in the sand cig stubbers for instance) I reckon they'll be about 1000 of them to do every day, but those touches will be the thing we will remember the most.Immaculate gardens, with the most amazing plant borders where the mixture of colours was dazzling, a credit to the gardeners.Transport system was good, frequent enough but as expected can get busy so be prepared to wait at peak times.Wifi is ok, gets you through, but lets be honest if you need longer than 15 minutes every day to check email etc when you're somewhere like this you need to get a life, plenty of time to read every post on Facebook when you're sat at home!The thing we will remember the most is the way they embrace the wildlife, an amazing mixed bag of creatures and critters. I've never seen so many iguanas and hermit crabs, the size of my fist, down to bats flying around the lobby, truly amazing, we will be returning some time soon.

Tips you need to know!

The Grand Bahia Principe is a beautiful place. The grounds are gorgeous and well kept. The rooms are cleaned daily (typically later in the day, but they stock the fridge with complimentary Dos Equis, tequila, soda, and water). Use the "please clean room" sign and they are typically quick. In my experience, rooms not on the first floor tend to have less issues with bugs or air conditioning. I was on the second floor of Villa 3 and had no problems whatsoever. TIPS:- WiFi is slow and spotty. To save money, buy Boingo for 9.99 and cancel subscription after. It works all over the hotel, even on the beach. Boingo is a god send!-There is only one outlet in the room and one in the bathroom. Bring a power strip! -Ask for Freddy in the main breakfast restaurant! He is awesome. Great service! -Be sure to book your A La Cartes upon your arrival. The hotel app doesn't work very well, so go to the public relations office.-The pools are nicer than the ocean. There are a lot of rocks, coral, and seaweed in the water. The staff works hard to keep the water clean, but it's difficult to swim. The lounge areas on the beach are very well maintained however and the staff is great! -The Coba gift store is better and less expensive. -Bring cash, but many places in the hotel accept credit card as well.-The in-room safe has a fee of $5 everyday and is very outdated. You have to carry around a large, heavy key. -There isn't a jacuzzi pool in Tulum... Coba has one, however.
