Luxury Bahia Principe Akumal by Don Pablo Collection  

Sunbathing, watersports and spa treatments top the agenda at the beachside Grand Bahia Principe Akumal.

This hotel is set in a huge complex along with the Grand Bahia Principe Coba and the Grand Bahia Principe Tulum. Buggies take guests around so they can make use of the high bar and restaurant count.

White sand and snorkel-friendly waters lie just beyond the hotel. One of the pools is beachside, and there’s another pool – a long, winding number dotted with bridges, palm trees and thatched parasols.

Didn't want to come home

I holiday often I would definatley return to this complex !!! We loved it and the fact you could use the facilities of all 3 hotels made it the best holiday. All staff worked so hard we were never without a drink, and we wanted for nothing. The food was varied and plentiful, if you want something to eat at 4am you just go to the snack bar and they cook it fresh. We visited coco bongo....this is a must!!!! A great night for any age. If you have booked this hotel I am extremely envious because you will have a fantastic time. Yes there were some building works but it was done with little or no noise/ mess and we were in the closest building to it all. They did close a swimming pool down but there are only another 6 to choose from!!!! It's really not worth complaining over. They have to do this work at sometime. Hopefully we will be back next year and thank you for an amazing holiday More


Simply faultless

if you have already booked this hotel then you are going to a truly fantastic place where you will be looked after so well from start to finish, if you are just thinking about going, what are you waiting for? We stayed in rooms 1111 right by the 24 hour beach bar with a fantastic sea view and just 2 minuets from the beach, the rooms were very large with a massive comfy bed, spotlessly cleaned every day by the maid, she even came back to turn the bed down at night, this is a huge site and the little buses take you where ever you want just put your hand out.There are many restaurants to book over the three hotels but our favourites where the Harlequin and the Don Pablo just amazing service and food in every restaurant we booked.there was a different show every night and then entertainment in the bar later again the service from all the bar staff and waitresses was excellent and they always had a smile and time for a chat look out for Laura our fave.The entertainment team worked so hard and made every evening special they encouraged every one to join in and where great fun Israel and his team did a great job.this was our third time in Mexico but the best by a mile and we might even break our own golden rule of never returning to the same place.More

This place is fantastic - 9 of us went with Thomson on the new Dreamliner. Std seats were great, travel there 9 hours, and 8.5 back (caught the gulf stream winds) age range of 9 of us from 17 to 75. Hotel, brill, not a bad word to say. food - again brilliant. two overcast days in September 24th - rest was baking. 3 trips out with thomson, Chichen itza is a must, bar crawl good laugh (all of us went 17 to 75 years old !) includes coco bongo - awesome, and dolphins were great very eco friendly. the 2 weeks went by very quick and the alcohol was barcardi and grants whisky no cheap. use rieman spf 20 or you will BURN ! underwater pool on way back from chicken pizza was awesome and I got rid of my fear of swimming to make sure I did this. so cool from the hot sun. Brill. I cannot say enough about how good this trip was. the Hotel had 3 other hotels and the 18 year olds went nightclubbing for free at hacienda, got the little bus's and they got in at 4 ! they said bus drivers were ace on a night and good fun. casino, or quiet days on beach. just perfect something for everyone. watch out for the white and green snake under the golden club hammocks. I have so much to tell I could go on for a month talking bout it ! I think that if you stay at cancun it wouldnt be as good. but I will have to try it to see. ! Enjoy.More



we went there the first year they opened and went back a few years later and found that it had tripled in size and wasn't as good .the place just got to big .the food was nothing like in the beginning and the service was poor the second time because it's just to big for them to handle. the waiters use to be spotless with there clothes and the second time they looked like dish washers. the beach is small and if your looking for a sandy beach its very small with a lot of rocks in it .would not go back after the second time, the pools are very nice I will sayMore

Great place to visit & relax

We had a great holiday here & would recommend this hotel to our family & friends.Even though the resort is large, there are many transport vehicules to bring you where you want to go (inside the resort) It is true that the people are soo friendly. What is so nice is that it is in a ecoparkMore
