Brilliant resort, something for everyone 👍

Just back from a wonderful 10 nights in this fabulous resort.. this is a huge and spotless resort, the grounds of the hotel are beautiful and very well taken care of, everywhere is constantly being maintained so is kept to a very high standard. There are wonderful wildlife wondering around the grounds, things we don't see in England so this is a great sight to see. The rooms are immaculate and very well equipt with a huge bed, shower and hydro bath, coffee/tea making facilities, iron and ironing board and a well stocked fridge which is filled everyday with beer, Fanta, sprite and sometimes even crisps and tequila.. there is a safe (extra charge), a sofa, a table and chairs and a balcony.. we were moved from one end of the resort ( near the dolphins to near the tequila restaurant) as there was a problem with the patio door so we experienced both ends of the resort. The tequila end was definitely the most beautiful part of the beach as it was not rocky.. there are numerous pools for all kinds of people, there is an entertainment pool with a wet bar, quieter pools too and all with a bar close by.. the beach is beautiful with plenty of shaded sun beds, paella is cooked on the beach and around the pools so there is no need to get dressed for lunch if you want to stay in one place. Food is wonderful, the breakfast buffets, the lunch/ dinner buffets are full of all kinds of food, not repetitive and there is nothing cheap about it, all top notch food! We booked 4 ala carte restaurants, the Mexican for our wedding anniversary, they decorated the table in love hearts made with red petals and really made a massive effort to go the extra mile.. the Peruvian, the Mediterranean and the Brazilian, this food was amazing! Beautifully cooked and presented. There is a show on a night which is really professional and entertaining and after this live music in the bar area until 11 pm, after that you could go to the nearby hacienda but we chose not to do this. There are shuttle buggies that you can catch in and around the resort which will take you anywhere including the Hotel Coba where their facilities are all inclusive too.. overall a fabulous holiday indeed, would recommend and return 👍

Beach - amazing guys so close to pool if you hate sea water like me so good showers right on beach! Nightlife - you want quiet you get you won't loud you get You want 24hr you get ! Take a trip out to guys ! Tortuous place great trip! And the buggys ! Plenty of leaflets knocking about if you don't want to hear off the rep, who actually goes to see them these days ? Yawn. 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!

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.

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,
