We (7 of us) just got back from 1 week at the Bahia Principe Tulum. It is a beautiful resort but now having been there it is a bit too big for our liking. We had three rooms between the 7 of us and had requested by email that they all be together. It ended up that we were not...

Beautiful Resort! Fantastic beach at Hacienda Club (which was well worth the extra expense). It was great that you could also enjoy amenities at the other 2 Bahia Principe resorts right there! I would highly recommend this resort to anyone. I'm looking forward to returning!

We loved this resort - really you are getting three in one with being able to use the facilities at the Coba and Akumal as well as Tulum. The staff are very friendly and helpful and we really liked the food. Yes, it was not always perfect, but it is almost impossible to do that with the amount of people...

We visited with our 3 preteen/teens. Everyone had a good time and said we would go back. The food in the buffets was mediocre at best. Would have been much better if it wasn't cool or lukewarm. However, the food at the a la carte restaurants was fantastic and hot. Evening entertainment was about a 3 out of 5, which...
