    Don't buy

    The hotel is great, but don't buy the privilege club. It's cheaper to book on line as the price is better than what "members" are told they get. They change what you receive every year as well as their prices, so what you're told when you buy, changes at their discretion.

    Great Family Vacation

    We stayed in the Jamaica GB last year and we must say our Mexican experience was much better. The staff here was much more attentive than the very relaxed staff in Jamaica. Food was better, kids loved the kids club full of activities. It is a big resort however and you might have to wait for the carts to come by to get to places. We stayed at the Tulum and carted over to Coba for kids water park. Long beach at Tulum which was pretty busy, but the hidden gem is the far end of Tulum, that was the nicest beach, but bigger waves. That side of the resort was shut down except for the beach, so no towel or drink services, pool still available and very quiet. We tried all the buffets at each resort, Akumal and Coba buffets were a little better. Did not realize you can swim with Dolphins on the resort, you will want to look into that if you haven't tried it, decent pricing, however check in staff there wasn't very friendly. The trainers were knowledgeable and super friendly. The grounds were very clean but do not leave food laying around, lots of little animals patrolling the resort. Not even sure what they were, but they were harmless. Evenings are great! Theater puts on great shows, they have live music by the lobby to relax to and then they have shows at the Hacienda as well. So lots of options. Kids club was great as well, very secure and full of activities for the kids, our kids preferred kids club over spending time with us! The rooms are a little small, but we did not spend too much time in there anyway. Beach Restaurant for lunch was our go to!

    What a lovely vacation!

    Me and my group of friends (six in total) stayed here over the course of seven days. This is an excellent base for a Mayan Riviera vacation. The service is top notch, and the staff here are extremely kind, fun, and helpful. I would absolutely love to return here one day. There is another resort conjoined to this one (Grand Bahia Principe Coba) and while staying at the Tulum location you have access to the pool and bar and a la carte restaurants there as well, which was nice. There is also a casino, discotheque, and more at the Hacienda on the same property. There is always something to do here, 24/7. We had a great time here. The pool is HUGE and this property is beach front as well so you can enjoy your time relaxing on a white sandy beach. This resort is also very close to (20 mins from) Tulum town, about a 30 minute drive from Playa Del Carmen, an 1 and a half drive from Chichen-Itza, and an hour drive from Cancun, so you are very central to everything.

    Dad and lad

    Having previously stayed in the grand Bahia runway bay the month earlier I had big expectations if Mexico. The hotel was ok, absolutely huge complex and easy to get lost esp of a night. The transport network was really helpful tho so that’s a plus. The pools were good sizes and relatively clean but the beach was full of weed the whole time we was there, the was constant work to clean it up but fighting a loosing battle for a sea weed clear beach. Pool entertainment was average at best. Bar staff around pools were pleasant and friendly is were served quickly. Food in all restaurants was good, lots of variety and always fresh. Al la cartes were what you would expect from the name. Activities around the complex were good and reasonably priced. Night life was good but the night heat sometimes gets to you. Entertainment for kids wasn’t the best but still my son enjoyed his time. All in all this hotel is ok In my opinion. The rooms were big and cleaned everyday which is a plus and any queries we had were dealt with fast and efficiently. Having stayed in Jamaica and Mexico in the same hotel chain I’d say Mexico could benefit from a few tips from Jamaica in terms of services and esp kids entertainment and activities. My rating out of 10 would be 6. This is due to the fact of a weekend it’s flooded with local Mexicans enjoying a kind of “uk butlins” get away. Which means more waiting time on food, alcohol and activities. The best thing about my experience has to be I met my future wifey for lifey. So for that I will always be grateful to grand Bahia tulum, who knows one day we may marry there. How romantic. :-)...
