Bahia Principe Luxury 2 Level Penthouse …… with 5 Star Resort Amenities

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time that we have been to Mexico and not staying at an all-inclusive resort. We were not disappointed in our experience. The condo was stunning! The beds were comfortable, and the back wall of windows allowed you to feel you were outside all the time. We never ran our of hot water even with 4 people taking showers within a minute of each other. We used the hot tub every day and to see the stars or look out over the trees while sitting in it was wonderful. Quetzel's pool chairs were the best in the complex and the pool was nice, but they take the cushions off at about 3:30 in the afternoon. We had the best quality pool towels but still got the towel cards so we didn't have to cart sandy towels back to our room. The kitchen was well stocked and the knives were sharp. Our condo has a nice grill which we did not use and there is also a nice grill at the pool. It was comforting to know security was posted outside the complex 24 hours a day. We would definitely stay at this condo again. Andrew was great to work with and he answered all of our questions which were many.

Regarding the Bahia Principe resort, I feel this information would be helpful. We decided not to rent a car so it was a half mile walk, one way to Sian Ka'an to catch any trams to the beach. I enjoyed walking and it afforded me the chance to see parrots and wild turkeys. It was very seldom that a tram came by our condo and they only run from about 7 am to 4 pm. Next visit, we feel comfortable renting a car and going to Akumal each evening to eat. Akumal has some wonderful inexpensive restaurants and three of them are on the beach. The beach for Sian Ka'an was lovely and reserved for that resort only and the Sian Ka'an pools were great but the employees were not very welcoming since we were not part of their resort. The shows were good for being resort shows and we packed our own alcohol most of the time. The beers were cheap at a dollar and we did eat one time at the snack bar and the food was okay.

Beautiful condo felt like a second home

  • 5 of 5

This condo is tastefully furnished, owner has gone out of his way to ensure his guests have all they need. We had friends and family in the same complex and this unit was by far the better unit simply because the owner had left little things like soap, major and minor appliances, air mattress, blow dryers,soap,sponges the list goes on . Recommend this unit highly. Andrew was amazing responded quickly to all my emails and inquiries. Thank you so much Andrew !! It was amazing !!!!

Comfortable and great amenities at Bahia Principe penthouse

  • 5 of 5

Not only did the 2 bedroom penthouse exceed our expectations, the owner cares very much to assure you have a comfortable stay. Andrew was very communicative and I felt we were taken care of even before we arrived. The resort property is nice and not as overwhelming as some of the other resorts. Akumal is a great location and you're very close to Akumal Bay where you can swim with the turtles, Xel-Ha and the Tulum and Coba Mayan ruins. Since we are Seahawks fans, the satellite tv came in really handy! The maintenance person stopped by to make sure all was OK. We preferred going to the Bahia Tulum resort since it suited my sons better who are in their twenties. Loved eating out in Akumal; Turtle Bay Cafe and La Cueva del Pescador (try the mini lobster or stuffed fish). The Akumal Dive Shop has a fantastic and attentive staff. Wish we could have stayed longer. Great place!

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.
