My husband and I had an excellent stay at Sian Kaan and can't wait to go back in the future. We don't have children yet...so were looking for an adults-only resort. Sian Kaan was the best of both worlds. We were around adults when we wanted to be...and during the day we could visit any other Principe resort and see families enjoying vacation.
Customer service was professional and they were very quick to meet our needs. We asked for more towels..and they were at our door within minutes. We asked the cleaning lady for more sodas...she stocked our fridge the next day.
The private beach with waitress service was my favorite part of choosing Sian Kaan over the other hotels. You really can't beat the beach location or the service.
The buffet was delicious and varied daily. I was eager to try the sit-down restaurants but really wasn't blown away by any of them. I will say, however, that we live in a major city and would consider ourselves "foodies." The Japanese restaurant, Maiko, was our favorite of the 5 sit-downs we went to.
The shuttle comes around often and we actually enjoyed our ride to the beach or other Bahia Principe resorts. We checked out 2 shows at night at other hotels..and thought they were cheesy. But, Sian Kaan had music (and dancing) at night---which was more enjoyable for us.
There were many daily actives to choose from. While on the beach you could get involved in games or choose to pass. We played a few and had a good time. Met people from all over the world while doing so! I liked having that option. One day it rained non-stop. The staff at Sian Kaan kept everyone very busy in the lobby. We played Spanish bingo and trivia. They also kept the drinks coming...certainly made the afternoon more enjoyable :)
Overall I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone. Akumal was beautiful and the hotel provided everything we were looking for in a beach vacation.
