Great choice of food every day and night Great entertainment, we only left to do the parks like xel-ha, senses through the day place comes alive at night especially as you can go down to the hacienda don't issabel on some nights.

My husband and I stayed here with my elderly grandfather and my aunt- and we were all VERY satisfied with the entire experience. We stayed near the lobby bar on the Tulum side and we were only a short walk from the beach and pool. The rooms were awesome- the staff is very helpful and the service is outstanding. We...

While booking this trip we were asked by the agent if we wanted to be off the ground floor and if we wanted a king size bed. The answer to both questions was yes. Upon arrival the place was beautiful but as we quickly found out there were somethings that did not meet our expectations. As we were assigned our...

Just back from a week at the GBH Tulum. It was our second visit and this time we vacationed with 2 other couples. The resort is beautiful and well cared for. Lots of walking, or if you'd rather, there are golf cart style trains running between resorts, the beach, restaurants. Sometimes in the evening they were busy and full ......

Our group of ten stayed at Grand Bahia Principe Tulum from January 27 to Feb 5, 2017. A lovely resort overall and I would go back again. Restorations after the Lobby Bar fire blazed along while we were there and were nearly complete by our departure. Restaurants sampled were Mexican, Brazilian, Italian and Gourmet. All very good but we felt...

Nice rooms, avoid first floors due to moist smelling. Great Food in buffet, great quality. You must visit Buffet and swimming pools in Coba hotel. Avoid italian restaurant Portofino. Shopping is better in Coba Lobby. Beach is beautiful, but not good for swimming, great for kids. You have to pay for safety box !! Don't miss Delphinarium at 11,00 am

We had an enjoyable visit - the beach & pools are lovely and very clean. There are a lot of rocks in the water at the beach, so bring water shoes. Lots of room as the resort is spread out. We did have some problems with our room (odour and uncomfortable bed), but the staff were on it immediately. The...

Just returned from a week long vacation at Bahia Principe Tulum and had a great time. The Bahia Principe complex is HUGE and we found Tulum to be very nice.

This is my third time staying at The Gran Bahia chain and it was by far my most disappointing time. It was honestly a 5 star super recommend type of resort but I was disappointed this time.
