Grand Bahia Principe has all the features that is expected from an all inclusive in Mexico: pools, swim up bars, buffets, a la carte restaurants, beach, scuba, kids club and entertainment. The problem is GBP doesn't execute these features as well as other 4 star resorts. The pools are clean and large but are very shallow and can be used...

Let me start by saying that I would have considered myself a loyal visitor to the Bahia Principe hotels (check out my previous review for Bahia's Ambar in Punta Cana), but this vacation was beyond disappointing. I would absolutely NOT return, or recommend the Coba, Tulum or Akumal resorts to anyone in the future. In fact, I'm wondering how on...
