    Great resort!!

    This is my 3rd time staying at a Bahia resort !! By far my favorite was Sia Kian all adult. Last time I was here I upgraded from Tulsa to Sia Kian. I’m staying at Akumal right now which is nice. The staff treats you like royalty if you have kids this is the better resort to stay in but if you are a adult Sia Kian is much better to stay in. Over all I have not been disappointed in Bahia resorts . Hope to travel to one if there resorts in a different country soon

    Breath-taking resort! Excellent staff!

    My husband I had booked in January for Sian Ka'an Grand Bahia Principe for August 2020. Due to Covid, we were bumped to the Luxuary Akumal, the same resort group. Initially we were concerned that we might not like Akumal as well as Sian Ka'an, and we were wrong! This is a beautiful property and the staff could not have been more welcoming. They work very hard to make your stay the best. And we were not disappointed! Every one of the staff from the front desk, drivers, guest services, concierge, servers, bar tenders, chefs and entertainment went above and beyond to ensure we had a good time and that our every need was met. On our second day (there for 14 days) we went scuba diving and my husband developed heat stroke and became quite ill. The staff assisted us to our room and checked on us frequently over the next 48 hours. They could not do enough to ensure that my husband was recuperating and had a doctor available if we needed. The entertainment is by far the best that we have seen at any resort in the Caribbean. The staff work very hard at ensuring the guests have a top notch show every evening. They are engaging and took time to sit for a few minutes to speak with us. Ivan was our concierge in building 83 and was fantastic. He took the time to place a call to Playa Del Carmen for us in search of a store that sold pewter and ceramics. He always had a smile and welcomed us back to our room. The bar service at the beach was fast and the servers, Maria and Marguarita were fabulous. They were pleasant each and every time they brought a drink to our chair, despite the 45 degree weather. All the staff at Los Corales were fantastic! We felt like we were at home with friends and family. The food was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. We had such a wonderful time at the Luxury Akumal and we can't wait to return!

    Gone to Heaven!

    I read the reviews before the trip and was pleased at how highly regarded this resort was. But, wow, this trip by far exceeded my expectations! Bahia Principe now has life-long members! The service was impeccable, Miguel the server - cannot say enough about him! He made my 15th anniversary special with dinner on the beach and a couple of days later surprised my daughter with a birthday cake during dinner at the buffet. On her actual 6th birthday, the doorbell rang and we were once again surprised with a birthday cake. Kudos from the 6 year old! The kids club reminded me of a legit daycare. I did not have any reservations with dropping my child off in the morning. She was in excellent hands! The food - wow! Not the generic bland food of most all-inclusive resorts. I do not usually leave reviews but I can honestly say this is the first time I was truly able to check out and leave my work, home-school worries and anxieties behind. And Bahia Principe Luxury Akumal made that possible. Now off to plan my next trip for my return!

    Gone to Heaven

    Arriving the grounds are beautifully maintained. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, professional and very helpful. The food was amazingly good. Great selection. We stayed in the adults only section. With a great view. The rooms are very sparse. There is no elevator so walking up and down stairs is great exercise. Plenty of activities and several pools. Will be returning
