Our Opinion

A top selling resort that is popular for weddings and honeymoons. Also family oriented with a great kids program. Like most Bahia Principe Resorts, you generally get excellent service. Transat holidays has a representative on site which is convenient. Beach is a bit rocky so make sure you bring your water sandals. Highly recommended. Also check out the sister resorts next door, Grand Bahia Principe Coba and Grand Bahia Principe Tulum.

1st time at GPB Akumal...definitely not our last!!

Don Pablo has raised the bar...with the Bahia Akumal staff exceeding our expectations! No words can describe our amazing vacation. I'm a frequent Caribbean traveler (Bahamas, Costa Rica, Saint Martin, saint Thomas, Cuba, and many more stops along our cruises) however this is my first review because GBP deserves the praise. Staff - take a bow!! There polite, pleasant, personal, helpful, considerate and truly make up for any imperfections ppl may have with the resort. The grounds are immaculate, pools refreshing, rooms beautiful, buffets delicious, Beaches stunning (sand is a little rough...but pls understand the 2nd largest coral reef guards the beech so relax and don't nick pick over uncontrollable issues) The resorts is well rounded with activities, restaurants, specific areas for any and everyone pending what your feeling that day.The a'la carte's are amazing but busy so make your reservations asap. I've got no major issues or complaints except the mini bar wasn't the coldest which didn't stop me lol restocked daily!! Wow what a trip! Great food, amazing food, beautiful views, memories I'll never forget. Ruins in tulum, interactive turtle swimming, swam with nurse sharks, massage under waterfall, amazing entertainment, and golf course which is breathtaking...7 days wasn't long enough, 10 woulda been perfect. Special thanks to my friend, Diego (the butler) hands down the nicest man I've ever met. He went out of his way on numerous occasions making us feel like royalty. Diego has management skills written all over and would make GBP even better than it already is!

  • Emily N :
Beautiful- Great Service

Beautiful, small resort with access to the three other Bahia Principe resorts in close range. Buffet food was excellent. A la carte food was also excellent. Service at this resort is great. All the staff go above and beyond to please you. Beach area is small and there are blocks which do not allow you to go far into the ocean/enjoy the waves.If you are someone who wants lots to do- this may not be the resort for you. We took advantage of some off resort excursions for excitement. But if you are just looking to relax this place this perfect.Night entertainment is really cool here.

best all inclusive we have had

We were bit unsure going all inclusive as we had a bad experience last time. But here the complete opposite, the complex is huge but you never feel crowded. The rooms in 82& 83 are excellent but the other villas are dated and could do with a face lift and new bathroom suite. The food is first rate and the alacart restaurants excellent . service is great majority of staff friendly and helpful. One gripe is the adult only beach is small and man made prefer soft powder sand

  • Sandy V :
Wonderful Vacation

This is a very large property. At first, we weren't sure if we liked the size but came to enjoy the diversity it provided. This is true of the beach areas as well. There are barriers in place to protect the reef as well as to provide calm water to walk, swim and float in. We came to appreciate these more and more each day as the water is so clear that you can see the fish without snorkeling. There are various areas to lounge and take in the various views. There are rocky areas that cannot be walked but there is also a LONG (1.5 miles) stretch to stroll along. We quite enjoyed all of it! The rooms are clean and have very comfortable mattresses...not too soft nor too hard. Best we've had in all our vacations to Mexico. Our view was of gardens with various trees. Our first also without a ocean view, but no complaints at all. Service is wonderful. The staff friendly. The buffet has plenty of options. All delicious. We ate at 3 a la carte restaurants. Japanese at Si'an Kaan. Italian (Dolce Vita) at Akumal as well as Frutos del Mar (seafood). All were wonderful with the Italian our favorite. We would return to this resort!

Love this Hotel Chain.

My wife and I have been using this chain for years now, and they never disappoint. Food is great and staff is terrific. We usually upgrade to the Luxury edition which has good perks. We just stayed there first week of Jan. and the weather was awesome
