If you want a relaxing week to read a book, don’t go to a resort called “FUN” It had to be the best priced resort of the year. Well under 1000.00 only because it is not right on the beach. We loved that the resort was a little out of the way; we felt we had some space/privacy which also allowed us to relax. There were some people complaining around us, but we couldn’t imagine what for- some people are never satisfied. The Bahia Principe Resort is formed by three 5 stars hotels (Tulum, Akumal and Coba) with a total of 1295 rooms, the commercial and entertainment center “Hacienda Dona Isabel” and the best variety of services in the Caribbean. A great all inclusive variety with 5 restaurants and 6 bars, sporting activities, dive, spa, horse back riding, sailing, mini-golf, professional shows, entertainment, drinks in the bars and in the disco combined with the warmth of Mexican people and an excelent personalized service.
When contacted afterwards, the Bahia chain of resorts would take no responsibilty for poisoning my fiance. I would not recommend this resort to anyone, unless you would enjoy spending your vacation in a hospital of a developing country. This is not a 4 star resort it is a 3. The rooms are looking run down and the large pool needs the bottom repainted. Oh – the Sunwing rep had never visited the resort so could not verffy our story!! Lesson to learn from me: document your concerns, shout and scream unti, someone listens and signs your paper.
After arrival, the bus ride to the resort was around an hour long. It passed very quickly, though! Since they started in 1995, Outback Jeep Safari has set about showing the Dom Rep visitor the fabulous nature park that surrounds the majority of the beach resorts and towns of the Dominican Republic. The business has now expanded, but the quality and customer orientated attention to detail are as evident to day as they were when it all started. Who runs a resort with not enough keys for the safes?
As is common in Latin American countries, maintenance has not been the resort’s forte. The rooms are suffering from ten years of neglect. The majority of visitors head to Bahia Maimon for an all inclusive family holiday at one of the deluxe resort hotels, or for a romantic honeymoon or couple?s getaway, spent in splendid isolation. On holiday in Bahia Maimon you will be staying on the Dominican Republic?s north coast, which is tailored to the needs of holiday visitors, yet retains a traditional, laid back atmosphere, typical of this Hispanic Caribbean region. Ocean lovers can engage the waves with resort sports such as kayaking, snorkeling, windsurfing and more. Land activities such as tennis, basketball and volleyball are also just some of the adventures that are often offered on a complimentary basis.
The two-story resort’s 532 air-conditioned guestrooms and 12 suites feature Rattan furniture, minibars, balconies, cable television, direct-dial phones, safes and liquor dispensers. For wonderful Caribbean memories, the Riu Merengue offers moderately priced packages that will surely make ideal vacations for romantic couples and other travelers. This was a must because of a lot of young adults fighting and young women screaming for help just outside our location in the resort. There seemed to be very little security guards in the area dealing with the situation. This truly Mexican resort is clustered amidst 280 acres of coconut palm trees set against a backdrop of tropical jungle, absolutely secluded on a one mile stretch of beautiful Caribbean beach front. Beckons you to spend a few worry-free days at a very special place in the Mexican Caribbean.
