The Gran Bahia Principe Tulum

Gran Bahia Principe Tulum is a vast and beautiful all inclusive resort. We have stayed here many times and there are impressive amenities for all to enjoy.

From the moment you check-in, after being welcomed with a refreshing
drink of your choice, you immediately realise that you set for a fantastic vacation. The service from the staff in the hotel is excellent and they are always only too happy to help.

Remember to book up your a la carte restaurant reservations straight away. Depending upon your package you are usually entitled to three or four reservations per week of your stay.

The buffet restaurants at the Gran Bahia Principe Tulum are open at
set times between breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are also a variety
of snack bars located throughout the resort.

Gran Bahia Principe Resort Ground

Coba, Akumal or Tulum?

If you stay at the resort you can also take advantage of all the facilities at
the Gran Bahia Akumal and Coba resorts which form part of the same overall complex. There are regular trams for you to hop on and off, which act as an enjoyable transportation link between the three resorts.

The resorts are arguably equal, however they all have specific amenities and share advanatages and disadvantages throughout.

For example you may prefer the entertainment theatre in Coba, the buffet restaurant in Tulum or the swimming pool in Akumal.

If you stay in Coba you are furthest from the beach, but it can still be easily reached by the trams.

There is also an entertainment and shopping complex on site which is called The Hacienda Dona Isabel. There are nightly shows and music here and the opportunity to try out your latin dance moves.

This centre features a couple of bars, as well as a late night disco and is part
of the all inclusive package. During the day you can explore the shops and market if you wish, you will also find the pharmacy located here. The Hacienda is a short walk away from the main lobby at Tulum or can be reached by tram from the Gran Bahia Akumal or Coba.

Resort Facilities and Amenities

There are a selection of swimming pools to explore and enjoy in all of the resorts at the complex. There is at least one quiet pool in each hotel, where you can relax and sunbathe. There is also at least one activity pool where you will encounter a selection of pool games and music throughout the day.

The entertainment team is very good and in an average day they will arrange anything from beach volleyball, to water polo, Latin dancing or gladiator style duels. There are swim up bars in some of the pools, and there are generally a wide variety of bars and snack bars located throughout the complex.

There are spa facilities and beauty treatments which you can book, however these treatments are not included in the inclusive package. There is also a gym and bikes to hire so you explore the complex at your own pace.

If you are planning to travel to Riviera Maya on holiday then the Gran Bahia Principe Tulum is definitely worth considering.
