Awesome resort

The resort is huge, but felt very at home, staff is super friendly even though there were some communication issues due to their lack of English. I loved taking the trolley, room was gorgeous, food was great, only issues is wifi, and the beach was not the best, but still had a great time overall. More>

Great hotel and facilities - would return again

Stayed with 11 year old son and had a great time. Well worth the upgrade to a hacienda room. The benefits are that you can use the tequila and gran tortuga restaurants for breakfast and lunch. Both are on the beach with spectacular views and very quiet. We used the tequila pool (hacienda) pool all week which was quiet and we always managed to get loungers etc by the pool. There was an entertainment programme each day at the pool From 10am to 1pm and then 3pm to 5pm. It was just enough and my son enjoyed it especially the water volleyball and I enjoyed the aqua gym class. I think that the main pool had more activities but was a lot busier. You could exchange towels whenever you wanted at the poolside. Shared transfer - I booked the hotel on line and took advantage of the free shared transfer from cancun airport. The service was excellent and we were in the hotel within an hour of leaving the airport this was well over 1.30 hour before the tour operators. Restaurants - we went to 5 of the alacarte restaurants. Tequila, gran tortuga, oasis, Japanese, don Pablo. The only restaurant that had a dress code was don Pablo which was fine dining. I enjoyed all restaurants slightly disappointed on the service in the Japanese. If you are going to a restaurant in cobra always leave 30 mins to get there with the buggies. Night entertainment - enjoyed the lion king show, Michael Jackson and the rock live show but also just enjoyed sitting outside the lobby bar enjoying the music and breeze. Went to look around coba 1 day but it was so busy compared to tulum and glad we stayed in the tulum a lot quieter. The water park at the coba was quite small and only really for children up to about 8. Food and drink - all the food was excellent and a good variety each day. Most brands do drink available from 10am each day Trips - don't book trips through Bahia tours in the lobby go downstairs to the hospitality desk where the same tour is considerably cheaper. With regard to other comments on here about money going missing - we left money out for housekeeping twice and it was still there when we returned so had to go and find the housekeeper to give money too so had no problems. A great holiday and definitely would return More>

Have just arrived back after two weeks with family and we had a wonderful time. I cannot quite believe some of the negative reviews written on here as I feel some of these people must have been staying at a completely different resort to us. Service outstanding, food amazing, room and grounds perfect, entertainment great, quality of drinks brilliant. We stayed in the Hacienda section and whilst staying we witnessed a couple of people actually getting turned away from the bar and pool for not having the correct wrist band on so I don't quite understand were the comments below state that no one checks the colour of the bands as we certainly noticed people being turned away as they were not part of the upgrade. Rooms, cleaning staff and mini bar top up was fantastic too. So clean and beds changed every day. Whilst we were staying last week we had four birthday's my three sons and my mums and the staff made such each and everyone of them had a birthday surprise, cakes, balloons, flowers, champagne. The waiters made sure my three boys all had a cake and sweets to make them feel special. Samantha in public relations really went out of her way to make their birthdays abroad memorable. So much food and so much choice even my very picky 12 year old found something to eat every day. Al A Carte especially Don Pablo was outstanding. So thank you Grand Bahia Tulum for making our holiday so very special and I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to stay here. Good up the great work. More>

Stunning Hotel Will Be Returning

Two lovely weeks here and would have stayed longer if we could. Had a couple of days of some pretty rough storms but made no difference to us, they arrived fast and left just as fast and it was so warm still we just carried on. The hotel is stunning, the pools are just perfect to swim in, one pool has a swim bar, completely seperate childs pool away from the main pools, great idea. Staff were wonderfully friendly and always there for you. Staff clean continually even in the pool while you are in it! Spa was 'nice' but over priced. Lots to do and see. Hard work being a vegetarian but that still applies everywhere abroad but they did try their best. Definitely returning to this lovely place. Adjoining hotel 'Coba' just as stunning. More>
