We arrived and thanks to tripadviser booked the 3 a la carte restaurants. Some fully booked but managed to get all three, others not so lucky. The room had old fashioned furniture but was large, well cleaned and spacious with great air con. The main problem was the buffet. The tables were rarely clean and we had to wait for...

I want to preclude this review with a few things: 1. I felt as though I did a lot of research on this resort. 2. Air Canada Vacations rep highly recommended this spot. 3. The reviews on TA and other websites were very good, especially on the food. 4. I've spent my career (25+ years) in hospitality. 5. We purchased...

We had never been to this resort before, but on the recommendation of several decided to give it a try. It was our 8th visit to the Mayan Riviera so we have stayed at other properties and would now say although not our favourite a definite second. Property is huge but their transport system is vibrant so if you don't...

We have been to the Mayan riviera alot. This was our first time at Grand Bahia Tulum. Had a great 10 days there. It has been one of our top vacation resorts. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The food was better than most all inclusive resorts. A la carte restuarants were easy to book and there were no...

This was our second visit to this resort, the first was 10 years ago. As the title says, they seem to be basking in past glory, while the resort is still not too shabby, it no longer reaches the standard it did a decade ago. I blame this on penny pinching by management. For example the first time we stayed,...

Just back from my first visit to Mexico. I certainly wasn't dissappointed. Mexico was all I was hoping for but our stay at the Grand Bahia principe Tulum made our holiday the best. From checking in to checking out we received excellent professional service. All the staff we met were always helpful friendly and a pleasure to meet. All are...

I was shocked with my experience at the Grand Bahia Tulum! I LOVE Mexico and have always gone... I had never been to that side before, and have heard amazing things about Tulum! This resort was highly recommended, so we thought, let's give it a try. Don't get me wrong, we had a great week! Beautiful weather, and the food...

We were 2 couples with kids 17 and 14. This resort was very large but very well maintained and coordinated. There were many shuttles available to drive you to where you wanted to go. There was a shuttle stop right outside our room in building 18 so very convenient. The room was spacious and very clean. Beds were comfortable as...
