Nice property

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time here near Akumal. Everyone is very kind and the property is awesome.

A few comments in regards to our condo: showers were not working properly, flow was adjused as we had very little warm water and took cold showers. Drain in shower needs maintenance, lots of deposit under drain.Closets were full of owners things, we had zero room in the second bedroom and very limited space in master. These issues were very inconvenient for sure. We hope with comments things will be resolved for the next people that come in. It would also be helpful to have a binder handy for rules, directions, recommendations, etc. This is a huge property with lots to do.

The condo has a well stocked kitchen and was clean. Beds are comfy although a king in the second bedroom would be nice. Bathrooms are good as well, plenty of storage. Overall, our stay was very nice on this beautiful property.

Great Stay at Tao Gran Bahia

  • 5 of 5

We are two couples in our 60's that stayed at this wonderful condominium. The condo was everything it was described to be. It was very secure and we felt safe at all times. We had a rental car so getting around was easy to do. We visited Tulum Ruins, Chichen Itza, Playa del Carmen and Cozumel. The shuttle system to all the Gran Bahia Hotel Resorts were very easy to use and efficient. The only issue we had was the fact that you could not use cash to purchase food at any of the resort restaurants. We pretty much were on the go going to all the different places and purchasing a all inclusive voucher for an entire day was not practical for us.

The Gran Bahia Resort beaches were wonderful. We had a great time relaxing under the palapas at the beach and participated in the water aerobic class at the Sian Kaan beach which was a welcome exercise. We would recommend this condo to a single couple or two couples as having the ensuite bathrooms provided all with privacy.

This was the perfect getaway for me and my girlfriend. The condo we stayed in was in a community called TAO that was absolutely fantastic. Everyone was very courteous and extremely helpful. There were shuttles available to take us to the beach (which was absolutely gorgeous and the water was extremely blue) which was just minutes away. Also, the shuttles would take us to any of the four surrounding resort hotels for dining and lots of entertainment. The owners of the condo we stayed in were very professional, helpful and informative. All in all it was a great getaway. I recommend it to anyone who loves "fun in the sun"!

I absolutely loved our stay at Tao at Gran Bahia Principe. We have been to Mexico numerous times & stayed at numerous resorts, but I have to say that the condo we stayed in at TAO in Gran Bahia Principe was the best time we have ever had. Being in the resident's side of the resort allowed us to have our quiet, romantic times, while still being close enough to the excitement of the beaches & the pools that we could get there within minutes on the trolley. Having 4 beaches and pools to choose from during our 9 day stay was amazing, as we could check out a new location every day and they were all absolutely gorgeous. My boyfriend took advantage of the wellness center for his daily workout, but I much more enjoyed the yoga & zumba classes on the beach. I was skeptical about not renting a car since we were staying in a condo, as I felt the cab fares would become enormous, but I was so wrong. The trolleys run every few minutes and I never had to wait more than 3 or 4 minutes to catch one. All of the drivers were courteous and frequently took us straight to our destination without having to catch a second trolley. Our day trips into Playa & Tulum were very reasonable cab fares & we made it back in time for one of the nightly shows at the different resorts, all of which were very entertaining. The water sports that were offered like snorkeling, swimming with the dolphins, and scuba were all awesome, but our zip line trip and snorkeling in the cenotes was probably the best day ever & was only a few minutes away. We were very disappointed that we didn't make it to Xel Ha & Xcaret. since they were just minutes away. Luckily we can do it later this year, as we have already booked our return trip here. This time we are bringing the whole family & it can't get here quick enough.

The best and most beautiful trip I have taken.

  • 5 of 5

The experience in TAO was amazing. It had absolutely everything we wanted or needed. The employees there were very courteous and extremely helpful throughout our stay. The condo we stayed in was absolutely perfect because not only is the beach a 2-3 minute trolly ride away but they had the most beautiful pool I have ever seen (The layout of the pool and pool area were perfect). The Wellness center allowed me to get my daily workout in and the grounds around TAO are perfect for running. We did not play golf but the golf course looked immaculate...Very green and manicured. The four surrounding resorts had wonderful food and the nightly shows were very entertaining and SO MUCH FUN! The property owners were very attentive, thorough, and pleasant before and after our stay. They made us feel very welcome!!! Overall, this was the best trip we have ever been on! We would highly recommend this destination to anyone who loves beautiful weather and beautiful views.
