This resort is okay. The food was good, the buffet was good as well as convenient so we only went to one al la carte which was okay as well. The snorkelling was handy right infront of the resort. We had to go three kilometres north to Akumal bay to see the turtles though. About half a klick south there are some sand bag barriers in the ocean, the kids had a blast trying to stay on them when waves hit. The rooms were average as far as cleanliness and a few mornings we had only luke warm water to shower in. Drinks are the okay but you wont find any rye there. You can find it in the liquor shops in Tulum or Playa de Carmen. And as many of the reviews state, use the collectivos, they are much more economical than a taxi. Many Europeans stay at this resort and some may be a little more aggressive in the line ups to what North Americans are acustom also quite a few of the gals let their girls out for a little sun which is something else you may not be acustom too. One beef we had was with the tour desk at the resort. We were warned by others but did not heed the warning. The tours we booked at the resort were more expensive and poorer quality. Our guide Abraham P. rushed us though our tour and was not very informative at all. We learned more from eavesdropping on other guides. To sum up, if the price was right we would go back to this resort.

My husband and I discovered Akumal Beach Resort a year ago when we were staying at the Grand Sirenis (10 min drive north of Akumal on the Mayan Rivera). We did not enjoy the impersonal service and expansiveness of the larger resort and preferrred the more personal, Mexican owned and operated appeal of the Akumal Beach Resort which sits on a magnificent expanse of beach and coral reef. We have just returned from our second stay and will return again next year. The snorkelling off the beach is the best. We have seen giant parrot fish, grouper, sea urchins, lobster, manta ray and a myriad of fish. It is like swimming in a giant aquarium. The accomodation at the resort is basic but clean . There is an excellent selection of food at the buffet and the resort has three bars, a huge swimming pool and a recreation staff. We prefer to stay in the 500 or 600 series rooms which are oceanview and oceanfront respectively. The former overlooks the pool and recreation area so if you want quiet you may prefer the other. This resort is not for people who like alot of activity and restaurant variety. It is more laid back . We enjoy walking the beach, relaxing with a good book under the palms and meeting other like minded folk. It is a large enough resort to have privacy but small enough for a more personal stay. The quaint village of Akumal is just a short stroll down the beach where you will find a few shops and quaint seafood restaurants. We have found our 'little Maui'.

We had a wonderful experience at this resort! The room was clean and although it was at the far end of our resort, we had full access to the other two resorts so everything ended up being conveniently located. Transportation carts run throughout the three resorts and will be at your closet stop every 5-10 minutes, so its never a problem getting to were you need to go. The staff is very nice, however, it did take a while to get drink orders inside of the restaurants. The buffet food is pretty mediocre; the a la carte is slightly better (we got 3 a la carte dinner reservations for a 7 night stay). The bars have good drinks and tenders. We also liked how there was a Hacienda which had additional shopping, bars, and the night club. The nightly entertainment at our resort was suprisingly good. The pools at all the resorts were beautiful, and although some of the beach was rocky, it was easy enough to find a good access spot. We also saw some pretty cool fish in the designated snorkeling area. Overall, you can't really go wrong choosing one of the three Bahia Principe resorts.

Absolutely beautiful all inclusive resort on golf course, across the highway from beach, with full access to all amenities and facilities of other 3 sections of Gran Bahia Principe resort (Tulum, Akumal, Coba). The only drawback is the in-house transportation system to the beach area. Transportation needs to start earlier in the morning than 7:00 am for those early morning sunrise seekers.
