Does the Bahia Principe Akumal have oceanfront or oceanview rooms? And is there snorkeling at the hotel beach?

Hello.

We stayed here and loved this hotel! The food is great, and I've never seen such superb service!

The Akumal side has "Ocean-views", but they are "Club Golden" rooms. Most people go through a tour operator, like Air Transat, and they can book a Club Golden room for the price of a regular. If you can't get a Club Golden room, as for building 73-it has a great view of a courtyard.

Snorkeling is avail. at the Bahia Principe Akumal...However, I suggest you go to "Xel-Ha"...The extra money will get you a far way. I do not suggest the "Lazy river" they offer as it is hard grasping the concept of floating down-hill, the wind pushes you uphill, causing a less than enjoyable experience.

You'll love this hotel if you stay there!

Yes there are oceanview rooms. Even if you are not part of the club golden. Look at a map of the hotel and see which rooms are best for you, but get a room on the top or third floor. Try villa 56 stayed in it last feb and am going to agin this feb. because it was so nice. it's also very close to the activity pool. there is snorkeling and there is also scooba diving but you have to pay for the scuba. if you want to scuba you take a quick try at it in the pool and see if it's for you but you need to sign up for both of them. just ask ppl at the towel stands where to go and they'll help. good luck! Merry Christmas.

In Villa 47 at the BPA, the ocean is out your back door. We stayed on the main floor in 47 (closest to the pool and the beach), and we had a complete picturesque oceanview. Highly recommended. You'll love this hotel, the staff are the best.
