About 10-min. walk from our Villa 1A to the beach thru the GBP Akumal resort. Lots of shuttle buses to move people around so don't worry about getting around to...

This was our first time staying at an all-inclusive resort. Gran Bahia Principe has beautiful grounds, which are impeccably maintained. The service was wonderful, and the staff is very friendly; they are all fluent in English but tolerant of our attempts at broken Spanish. The pools and beaches are gorgeous. They literally have people whose job it is to rake...
