Pros: Clean, friendly and responsive staff, didn't try to push the timeshare presentation, very kid friendly, good drinks (double shots without asking), spa treatments good price and relaxing, signed up got My Bahia Principe which got us 10% spa, reinforced mask policies and social distancing, and gloves had to be worn in the buffet areas, they paid for our COVID test to return to the States, shuttles, reasonable price for room upgrades, gym limited the number of people at once and required reservations, and the tickets for their show Origen was very cheap but the show was great. Cons: Pools closed 7 pm, food in buffet was either tasteless or too salty, website and apps didn't work from the moment we booked, schedule lauggae pick up didn't show, and gym needs to be updated.

Family of 4. We were there end of August to September for about 6 days. We had the suite and it was newly renovated with a natural simple decor which we liked. Design of shower and tubs is a major fail as water leaks everywhere.( big liability issue if someone slips due to the poor design) They follow basic covid protocols but not really enforced either. None of the culinary team wears gloves when touching food which can be unslightly to guests especially during pandemic. Buffet at food was better than expected. Reserving a la carte restaurants are annoying and if not done as soon as you arrive a lot of the restaurants are fully booked. You are only allowed a certain number of a la carte restaurants depending on the duration of your stay which does nothing but tarnish the brand name honestly. Entertainment team was awesome and a highlight of the trip. They work hard to make sure the vibe is good and everyone is enjoying their stay. Pools were never crowded and pool bars were efficient and never had a long line. Beach is constantly being cleaned and there was no sargassum while we were there. Kids loved the waterpark. Overall my family had a great time and it was a great value for what we had paid. Covid testing was quick and seamless. Go as soon as it opens so you are done in 30 minutes and have the rest of the day to enjoy. Saul was a great waiter in the buffet. Polite and friendly and great service.

We stayed at the Tulum resort for 7 days. The resort was beautiful but far from the airport (especially when then stops for drop off to other resorts are made), upon arrival I requested a lower level room which was they were very accommodating with but we had to wait 4 hours so the manager could make sure the room was up to standards, they did however direct us to the food truck so we would be able to eat something while we wait, which was nice except we were given a room number that did not work and we needed it to receive our food, thankfully the staff at the food truck was kind enough to help out after we explained our situation. If you're looking for a turn-up vibe this resort is NOT it, however, we did meet amazing people from all over and the turn-up vibes were created on some nights by us lol. This resort does need to work on its music choices, as well as its party scene. The Hindu restaurant was by far our favourite, customer service from them was great too. We did test positive for covid when we took the test back at our country, pretty sure we contracted it in the testing center b/c we were told someone tested positive while we were in the facility... but who knows for sure. This area of the resort does also has a weird smell to it, pretty sure it's the seaweed problem and they also have a huge raccoon problem by the food truck, so we would take our food to-go most times. Customer service at the front desk needs work though, they are so many employees and the lines they have in the front desk area are ridiculous. Overall, it was a beautiful resort, customer service at the buffet and restaurants are all great and we had a great time, and I loved my first Mexico trip!

Customer service 0/5. When I try to call multiple numbers listed on their site I am disconnected. I emailed them on Monday and still have not heard back. Please contact me!! I would like to speak with a human and they don’t make this easy to do. If anyone can get in touch from bahia principe that would be great.

All previous reviews regarding the the front desk staff and their poor customer service are correct. I had the absolute displeasure of having to deal with David at the tour desk, he also checks people into the hotel. I had booked round trip airport transportation when booking our rooms (5 rooms total, 11 people). We were never able to find our driver and we called the hotel 8 separate times. Not one person could give us instructions on where to find our driver. I ended up paying for a taxi with the airport. While checking in to our hotel I made them aware we didn’t use their transportation and I needed to pay for a separate taxi service. They directed me to speak to someone at the tour desk. I spoke to the person, showed them my round trip taxi receipt and explained that we were not able to find our driver and tried calling the hotel repeatedly. I also explained that I would have preferred to use their transportation because I already paid for it. I didn’t fly for 4 hours to land and pay another taxi company $250 round trip when transportation was already set up. The woman at the tour desk said she needed to reach out to their headquarters in Miami and I would get an answer within 48 hours regarding my refund. Upon going to the tour desk today to follow up (we checked in on 8/28/2021 and today is 9/2/2021, more than 48 hours has passed), David told me they are not going to refund my transportation. I asked him to give me the number to their headquarters, he refused to do it. He told me to take a picture of an extension to call back in my room. I told him I didn’t have my phone on me, so I couldn’t take a picture. I asked him again to write it down for me and he said he will not. You work with customers. You need to learn how to please the customers because we will return and tell others to go. That man needs to be straight up fired.
