I had a wonderful time in Mexico thanks to the Grand bahia Principe Tulum.The staff is friendly and the resort has something exciting for all ages. I celebrated my friends wedding during the week of Day of the Dead, it was a cultural fiesta. Enjoy your stay, I did.

I have just returned from the Grand Bahia Principe Tulum. This hotel is good value for money compared to many hotels in Mexico. This was my fourth stay at either Tulum or Coba parts of the complex. The all inclusive includes international brands and a great number of cocktails, with strawberry daiquiri and pina colada pretty much on tap what... More

We stayed at this beauty resort for two wonderful weeks - Nov 15 - 29, 2016. The extensive buffet food was always fresh, beautifully presented and tasty! We experienced 6 Carte restaurants, all were excellent but Italian not our favourite. The resort itself is huge and the trollies are sometimes busy but a fun way to travel. Every single glorious...

Just had a week here with grown up family. Loved it and felt very spoiled! Accommodation was very comfortable and very clean. It's a BIG resort (golf cart 'trains' operate to get you about) but never a problem finding sun beds, space in the bars, or restaurant tables. Service is friendly and very efficient. Plenty of staff in all the... More

Honestly it was our first all inclusive resort and I wasn't really impressed. The rooms smelled like soil, the floors were always dirty. The food wasn't that good, and its slim pickings if you're on any sort of diet restrictions. The beach was alright, TONS of sand flees. The pools were nice though just overly packed. I wouldn't suggest it.... More

We travelled as a group of 10 people, everyone was equally impressed with the grandeur of the property, its absolutely HUGE!. The property is very well maintained, the food and drinks were fantastic and staff frequently went above and beyond. The a la carte restaurants give you the opportunity to see the entire resort as you visit the different areas.... More

My brother and I decided to book a last minute vacation to this resort as we tend to enjoy the Grand Bahia Principe's. It was just as expected.

We stayed at the GBP Tulum as a group of 7. My husband and I had a quick 5 night trip arriving on November 11/16.
