If you are looking for 5 star accommodation as advertised then you will be sorely disappointed. This hotel must have won its 5 star rating in a lucky bag. Upon arrival we were allocated our room in the hacienda section a short trolley drive from the lobby. Upon entering the room it appeared that the honeymoon couple already occupying the room had no intention of leaving anytime soon!! Eventually issued with another room, as far removed from the hacienda area as possible and still we are still waiting on the hacienda benefits such as bathrobes and slippers. 2 small beds shoved together to accommodate 2 adults and 2 children... In fairness when I addressed the inadequate sleeping arrangements the sofa bed was made up and a further single bed was squeezed into the room. We were lucky, our air con worked although it was extremely noisy. The water pouring through our ceiling light was addressed quickly.. Pools lovely and warm and depth wise great for our 5 and 6 year old, just a shame you had to get up at 6am to reserve a couple of sunbeds... Food plentiful but quality is mostly poor in the lobby buffet. The snack bar area is open to the elements and the flies seemed to be particularly attracted to the sandwiches which were left uncovered. A la carte restraunts better quality if you can bear to 'negotiate' a seating with the particularly unhelpful customer relation girls. My partner was ill for 2 weeks and couldn't keep any food down for long. Both the children and I were fine but we did meet a few others complaining of upset stomachs. Please also note that if you leave any personal belongings of any value then they will be stolen. The hotel reception desk is aware that the cleaning staff will thieve from guests. My six year left his Nintendo on the sofa bed where he slept. We had checked out by the time I realised he had left it in the room and the man on reception reactivated my card and told me to hurry because if the cleaner was already in the room it would be gone. True to his word , the cleaners were already in the room and my sons Nintendo had miraculously disappeared into thin air. More>

Tulum is one hotel in a complex that includes a total of 4 hotels - Tulum is a great family complex where you will see lots of kids of all ages as well as a good spectrum of ages amongst adults - Buffet dining for all meals is pretty good - the beaches are family friendly - cantinas provide snacks all day long - We always find the staff and service wonderful at Tulum - and the resort pretty much shuts down by 11:00pm - This is not a party complex - Also - Air conditioning and electricity must have been recently updated because our room maintains and even 67 degrees 24/7 and it was lovely.

My wife and I had a late "honeymoon" and I was impressed with the resort when I first stayed there 15 years ago. We booked in again and are we ever glad we did! From our arrival to our departure everything went perfectly. The room was spacious and well kept with no signs of wear. We made a point of tipping the minibar and housekeeping staff daily and they blew us away with the daily contents of the bar and the creative bed arrangements. We were there for a week so we booked in our a la cartes at the Japanese, Brazilian and Mexican restaurants. We opted not to go to the show in the Japanese, but the menu and staff left us wanting for nothing. I can't say enough about the Brazilian grill. The food was UNREAL and as a big guy, I had to tap out before I tried all the skewers. This experience was made even better by Miguel with his flaming coffee and the manager Adrian who was also wine service. Well done gentlemen! The Mexican restaurant had an amazing view of the beach and ocean and the food was not "Mexican food". I highly suggest the chicken roll. All the staff were always smiling and ready with a cheerful Hola! We wanted to give a special shout out to Hugo who was one of our room staff. He left a note on the last day as he had not seen us for the entire week, and wanted to thank us for taking care of his family with tips in the fridge. He went WAY above and beyond and bought US a bottle of nice tequila to bring home. I spoke with him at length and hope his twins are happy and healthy. The personal touches like this made our honeymoon exception. Yes. We are THOSE people that everything goes perfectly for. But not without effort by the resort... More>

The Grand Bahia Principe, is without doubt the best all inclusive hotel I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. The rooms are spacious and clean and they get a good clean every day. The food in the main buffet restaurant is fabulous with plenty of choice to suit all tastes. We also tried the Japenese, Brazillian and Mexican a'la carte restaurants also. These were absolutely fabulous. The entertainment was first class and the hotel staff could not do enough for you. Nothing was too much trouble. Special mention to Alfredo in the buffet restaurant who always made sure my wife and I were looked after at meal times. The golf course was absolutely first class ( I managed 2 rounds). I travelled with Thomas Cook and found the whole holiday from start to finish absolutely brilliant. The all inclusive drinks (spirits) were all of a named brand, not the usual cheap stuff you may associate with other all inclusive hotels. All in all, a truly fantastic holiday. My wife and I will definately be returning. More>

from the moment we got there till we left everything was great, we got a room overlooking the Dolphinarium which was amazing, the only thing wrong with the room was the sliding glass door did not lock, so i had an extra bed that i shoved up against the door and that worked..... the room was very nice, everything worked fine. it was a bit of a walk to the big pool, which i would get up and get our lounge chairs by the pool, The food was good, we only went to the buffet, their steak on the buffet was very good but it didnt last long. the breakfasts were great just about everything imaginable...the resort itself is large, we only took a trolly a short ways to the casino and all the little shops....the entertainment crew were great! we enjoyed the shows and they actually sang instead of lip sinc'd! the weather was great it only rained once but not for long but it did come down! the pool is great, with the swim up bar only one bartender and he was going in all different directions! we booked a catamaran ride which was fun, but very choppy. check in and check out were no problem at all, they were more than happy to help with anything.....we didnt go to the beach hardly at all , we just hung out at the pool. i highly reccomend this resort, as we may be going back next year.
