Never a disappointment when we stay at the Bahia Akumal. We’re on our 3rd day now and our 5th visit and we’re having an amazing time. Our room is awesome,beautiful ocean view and a short walk to the infinity pool. Room 83-220 has a wonderful view of the jungle and ocean definitely the best of both worlds. The entire staff is so awesome I can’t say enough how great they treat everyone. Heading to dinner and I’ll finish my review once we get home. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.

Stayed here over the Christmas and New Year and it was brilliant.Rooms spacious and clean and the beds are so comfortable.Buffet restaurant one of the best I’ve been to okay food not always hot but with the amount of choices it can’t be just cooked to order.Specialist restaurants were all very good ,we did try nearly all of them which were easy to book through the onsit ap.Entertainment was quite good a lot of good dancers.Drinks were all proper brands except maybe at the beach.Lots of cocktails to try.We did visit the other hotels that you could use and they looked to be good too

We were more than happy with the location of our large oceanfront room (block 66). The view over the beach and sea every morning was spectacular. The room was kept clean and there were always plenty of toiletries and towels left by the maid. The mini bar was refilled every day. The resort/hotel is huge but this isn't a problem as the shuttle service to transport you around the 4 hotels is excellent if you don't want to walk too far. We ate in the buffet restaurants every lunch time and 3 evenings. The other evenings we booked tables at some of the a la carte restaurants. These are great if you fancy a change from the buffet and it is lovely to be served at the table. At most of them the food and service was excellent and we had no problems at all booking them. When it was my birthday we were made to feel very special. Chocolates and a bottle of bubbly in the room. In the evening there was more bubbly waiting for us in the Arlequin Restaurant (our favourite) and a cake. The majority of the staff are very welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them. Our only gripe would be that all the bars close at 11pm, so if you want a drink after that time you have to go to the 24 hour bar and drink out of a plastic glass. Don't think it would hurt if they were open till midnight as they are not noisy.

Amazing

How *do* they think of everything? This was our third trip back to the Bahia Principe Akumal in the past two years. I have made at least ten other trips to all-inclusive resorts in Mexico, and I continue to be amazed at how this resort can think of everything! We could easily not leave the resort. They have everything. Food, drinks, beach, adequate snorkeling off the beaches, fine swim pools, etc. (See our photos from the snokeling!) My date and I are not casino people, but we enjoyed the polite shopping in that entertainment area. Was happy to find an out-of-the-way corner bar near the casino which had TV's able to show ESPN (even though the so-called sports bar did not have ESPN!) and we were able to watch the Iowa Hawkeyes win the Pinstripe Bowl. My smallest of observations might be that in the room our daily stocked bar refrigerator included vodka, rum, and whiskey-- no tequila. Otherwise, the chips, soda, and beer in this fridge were often so appreciated after long, hot days on the beach. Another small, personal complaint happens all the time in Mexico. For the life of me, I never see good coming from a swim pool area with an employee barking out 'let's party.' I know-- you all do it at every resort. But "Oooo oooo!!!!!!" over loudspeakers is never good. Please shut up. Of the buffets, we liked the Sian Kahl best. We enjoyed the a la carte restaurants and I think both the seafood spot and the Brazilian are superior. The Maiko sushi place near Sian Kahn is okay but after my third time there I still would like my food and drink delivered more promptly. Our personal preference suggestions: The 'free' shuttle trip to Playa del Carmen is completely worthless; this trip gave us hard-selling at a silver and jewelry store then overpriced tequila from unknowledgeable (our guide did not know that 'reposado' tequila translates to 'rested'), then the amount of time allowed in Playa del Carmen was very limited. Next, the trip to the Akumal beach we felt was riddled with hidden traps such as the guided circle path just off the beach which is guarded by guys in kayaks who claim you're not allowed to snorkel yourself due to 'environmental' protection-- I suggest if you're there, take a cheap taxi down the road to the Yal Ku Lagoon. But still-- another GREAT vacation! Thank you to all at Bahia Principe Akumal who made our vacation excellent!
