Wonderful Holiday

Just returned from a 2 week holiday and have had the most amazing time. All staff at the resort make every effort to ensure that your stay is the very best it can be and beaches and grounds are kept spotlessly clean. The choice of food is great and the standard in all the restaurants (a la carte and buffet) was exceptional. We can’t recommend this resort highly enough and hope to come back soon.


Just returned from a two week stay with our 11 and 9 year old sons. We had the most amazing holiday. The hotel is absolutely spotlessly clean, the staff work so hard it is unbelievable. Where ever you look, at all times of day and night, there are staff cleaning inside the hotel and around the grounds. They do this in extreme heat and always with a smile on their face. They are such lovely, kind people and all staff just want you to enjoy your holiday and their country. The amount of activities and entertainment on offer is fantastic, the gym and the variety and number of fitness classes daily (Zumba, Aqua Zumba, yoga, HIIT training, boot camp / circuits by the pool and on the beach) is absolutely brilliant and so well planned. The boys loved the daily activities for them including volleyball (pool and beach), water polo, football on the beach and they found this to be a great way to make friends. The animation team were hilarious and the atmosphere around the main pool was great with music playing and occasional fun games for adults and kids alike. There is also a swim up bar at this pool. One thing to note was although the hotel is busy, it never felt over crowded due to the large amount of space and variety of pools / beach areas / bars . If the lively main pool isn’t for you, there is another huge pool which is much quieter without music, and it is located right next to the 24 hour snack bar. There is also the large adult only infinity pool and another large jacuzzi pool which contains three jacuzzis within it (located at the back back of the complex so this is great for people with rooms a little further away. It also has its own bar and so makes a great place to stop off for a drink on way back to your room. The choice of restaurants (buffet and a’la carte is phenomenal, and the food is out of this world. Booking a few restaurants during your stay is really nice (we booked Japanese, Italian, Mexican and Brazilian) but you will not be disappointed with the buffet, the variety and quality of the food is superb. The complex is so large that they provide a land train / buggy service which is so much fun....especially when the music is playing and everyone on there is in high spirits!!! If you get a chance to book some trips it is well worth it. We did Chichen Itza, which included a visit to a Mayan village and traditional meal and then we did S’ian Khan by speedboat where we saw dolphins jumping, large turtles swimming, crocodiles and the snorkelling in the reef. Both were incredible experiences and highly recommended. I also used the Bahia Spa which was absolutely gorgeous and the Maya massage that was recommended was amazing. Thank you so much to ALL staff for making our stay so special you should be proud.

Luxury Indeed

Just returned from this fantastic hotel which I couldn’t fault. All commentators mention the service of the staff which I would 100% agree with particularly Edgar, Patricia and Neyfi in the buffet. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them. I was continually impressed how they would memorise a large drinks order, never writing it down and returning with the exact correct order.
Food was excellent- we had nightly al la Carte dining with each restaurant excellent- we particularly liked the Mediterranean, Italian in the Coba and the Brazilian.
Beach and the pool have plenty of beds however could probably do with a few more Parasols.
Entertainment in the theatre and outside was good with each act finding a good balance with entertaining all ages.
Room was small but fine. We were hardly in the room so we’re perfectly happy with the accommodation. We had an issue one night where the air conditioning wasn’t working however was fixed within 90 mins which I was happy with followed up
With a courtesy call confirming everything was ok.
We did 3 trips all of which were brilliant. We booked Xavage, Xplor and Underwater World all via Bahia Principe Tours dealing with Luis in the Lobby. All VERY well organised, again I can’t fault.
Overall a fantastic hotel which made for an excellent holiday for my family (2 kids - boy 14 and girl 10)
Highly Recommended.
