Wonderfull Birthday Vactaion

We have just returned from two weeks at the Bahia Principe Tulum . This was our 2nd vist , and we took 10 new people with us to celebrate my 50th Birthday. What can I say apart from Excellent.....firstly I contacted Alfredo Mass, customer service Manager , and made requests for rooms and informed him of all the Birthday Celebrations whilst we were there (5 to be exact!!) , he was amazing , arranged everything for us, I cant thank him enough for making my Birthday very special. Our rooms had stunning views straight over the pool to the sea, in the area we wanted. The rooms very very clean and spacious . All the staff were amazing , and went above and beyond to make evryones stay enjoyable and stress free. We had most breakfasts and lunches in the Tequila restaurant, wow , what a stunning setting , right on the beach, and again the staff were amazing, especially the 3 Amigos , Edwin, Gonzalo and Luis, they made our stay very special , and I class them as friends , they are a credit to the Bahia principe, I hope they are there next time we go .Food was exeptional everywhere we went and so much choice, especially the Gran Tortuga , Brazillian , where we Celebrated my 50th, and the Mikado show table, staff again were brilliant.A fantastic place to stay , very relaxing break, excellent service , we will definately be back againThank you Bahia .

Still a good Choice

This was our second trip to the resort and although the experience was not a good as our initial visit it was still very good. In 2015 we stayed at the Hacienda and experienced an outstanding level of service. In 2017 the service was still very good but a notch below what we experienced two years ago. The food as always was very good at the buffet and the restaurants we visited. Entertainment was also good. We were disappointed that the Lobby Bar was closed for most of the week due to a major fire. This was a favorite hangout for us a couple of years ago. The beach and pool were excellent with plenty of shady areas if desired. The bottom line is that we all had a great time and would definitely return to this resort again.

Best holiday yet

Me and my boyfriend have just returned from a week all inclusive in this resort. Wow where do I even start... most importantly I would like to sing the sports & entertainment teams praises, without them our holiday wouldn't have been as fun and interesting as it was! They were all so friendly but the people who stood out the most for us was Jonath, Inver, Ivan & Roberto. They were truly helpful, fun, entertaining, lovely and they were so passionate about their job. They put events on each day at the main pool in the tulum part of the resort which included: waterpolo, crazy games, Zumba, water aerobics, dunking games, bingo and much more. If you go to this report you must try the Japanese restaurant on the coba resort, this was so fantastic and good was incredible. The buffets were also really tasty, and had something for everything. You must go to the Mexican fiesta evening on the Thursday if you get a chance & also the play del carmen free trip the hotel runs as this shows you a little more of the rural side of Mexico. The resort appeals to all sorts of people, I would say the tulum one was the younger resort, coba was the family one and akumal (luxury one) was the one for a more butler service relaxed stay. I would defiantly recommend this place to anyone who is thinking about staying in he riviera maya and Thomas cook was a brilliant tour operator to go with as you felt very safe and organised with them and they always had a rep in the hotel each day if you had any queries etc.

Wonderful Vacation

My husband and I had a wonderful 6 night stay at the Grand Bahia Príncipe Tulum. There was always so much to do with all the sport activities, a jam packed agenda, and then the tours that are offered. The food was pretty good for a buffet but I especially loved the Mikado restaurant and our waiter Ceasr was excellent. The Mediterranean restraunt was pretty good too, loved their crab bisque and our waiter Pedro was very kind and helpful, explaining everything very well. Every night we would go to the lobby bar, have a few drinks with our favourite waitress and then go to on of the great shows in the theatre and then back to the bar for the live music! The staff there were great and would be out their dancing their buts off as the life of the party helping all us awkward tourist loosen up a bit. There was such a wide variety at this hotels. There were enough pools that the party on crowd could do their thing while the families could enjoy their times and the couples who just wanted some peace and quiet could also relax by the water. The beach was BEAUTIFUL and our room was only 50 mins from it, so we spent a lot of time there. The bartenders were hit and miss- the best Caesars were made at the lobby bar for sure but the best mojitos were at the par by the small pool. The rooms were well kept and comfortable. My only complaint would be that one of the bartenders at the swim up bar was never there and my has and had to keep going up to get him so that all the people waiting below could be served. That put a bit of a damper on that afternoon but overall- would love to come again :) maybe next time even make it a family trip.
