Bahia Principe Luxury Penthouse …… with 5 Star Resort Amenities
average rating of 4.5 based on 4 reviews

Everything as advertised

  • 4 of 5

First off, we've been dealing with owners on VRBO for several years, and never had a better experience than with Andrew. He was excellent to deal with.

Upon arrival we were a bit worried about the softness of the beds, but they proved to be most excellent. The kitchen was on the small side, the master bedroom was up 18 steps and both the shower heads were not to our liking but we are reaching for reasons to not give this place five glowing stars.

The place was immaculate! The patio was really nice, the TVs had the channels as advertised and everything worked really well. The grounds were perfect and most days we had the fair-sized pool all to ourselves! The owners private beach was not yet available (under construction) but that didn't matter much. The beaches at Sian-Khan and Tulum were fine.

Its in a great location halfway between Tulum and Akumal for dining and bars, and although we didn't play golf (because of the $90 US they charged for 2 non-players to ride along) it looked like a really nice course.

All in all, it was a nice stay for us. I would recommend staying here, at Andrew's place!

Exceptional vacation retreat with all the amenities of an amazing beach club. Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, the vacation retreat was better than expected. Incredibly clean, well maintained and spacious enough for 4, we were incredibly happy with Andrew's condo. All the usual amenities were provided along with access to the Bahia Principe beach club, pools and restaurants. Located 15 minutes from Tulum and less than 5 minutes from Akumal, the location was perfect for our various adventures. Additionally, Andrew was incredibly responsive via email and checked on us to ensure our stay was going well.

We highly recommend this property to provide you with whatever kind of vacation you want... remain in the resort and relax or use as a base to explore the Mayan riviera.

Love Love this condo...amazing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this condo. If you are looking for a mind, body and beach getaway this is it.

The condo is like new. Beautifully decorated in a modern zen style. You can't see from the pictures, but it's two stories with a humongous master bedroom and en-suite bathroom on the top floor and the second bedroom, living and kitchen on the ground floor. The beds were super comfy with high thread count sheets. The bathrooms are very modern with walk-in showers and lots of granite and glass and plenty of hot water.

I love my I was beside myself with the 200 English channels that were available. We've vacationed in Mexico before and not understanding Spanish made TV/Movie watching not a lot of fun.

There's no shortage of things to do. It's on a huge Bahia Principe resort, so you have access to the beach, pools, restaurants, nightclubs and other 'resorty' things. This condo is on hole 2 of the gorgeous golf course, so played golf a few times. Then we learnt Yoga at the Tao centre and enjoyed a few of the spa service. The golf and Tao was extra, but well worth it. We saw plenty of people jogging, but that was a bit much for us.

We found we didn't really need to rent a car. We took the "Best Day" service from the Cancun Airport. Then we drove our golf cart up to Sian Kan hotel (4 mins away) and got a Taxi from there. The Taxi took us to get groceries, Tulum, Playa del Carman or wherever we needed to go.

The owner was awesome to deal with. The cleaning staff was amazing. I would highly recommend this place. You can never get bored here. You have the beach, the jungle, the Mayan ruins, it's really the best of both worlds.
