Positives: A la Cartes were good, especially Japanese one; grounds and pools were nice; Air Canada excursion which included Tulum ruins, caves, sea turtle snorkeling was excellent (Thanks Mario!); service was friendly. We had perfect weather all week. Negatives: Rooms were musty smelling and all clothes took on that odour. The beach was way too far, was rocky, and was... More

I will start by stating what we enjoyed about this resort. Firstly, the food was oh so plentiful at the buffets and the selection huge. The pools were well maintained and close to our room for easy enjoyment. The grounds were very well manicured and picture perfect. The staff were always friendly, even when some could not speak much English.... More

We stayed at the GBP Coba in May 2014 for our Honeymoon. We loved the place so much that we've booked again for our 1st Anniversary. The whole resort is absolutely stunning and you constantly see the maintenance teams taking so much care and attention to keep it that way. It took us a couple of days to get our... More

This really was a lovely hotel but there were ups and downs... The Good: The food is absolutely excellent. We previously stayed in a 5* resort in Mexico and we found the Bahia principe food to be of a much higher quality. You can not fault the choice and the buffet is replenished so often, it was really impressive to... More

This resort was great! Yes, my room could have used a paint job, but that is totally cosmetic. Everything worked great and I was comfortable. The room was clean, enough towels and the mini bar was stocked daily. The pool area was fabulous! While chairs could be hard to find empty, we would just get in the pool. Something always... More

I would like to start by recommending this hotel to people who wish to read my review. Let's start from:- Arrival- our luggage was taken care of from immediately leaving the coach. We were shown to the arrival desks where a gentleman gave us a refreshing margarita while checking in. He was quick to check us in and was very... More

The grounds are beautiful. Rooms needed a bit of updating. Beach was kinda of rocky and if you arrive late it was hard to find a chair. The restaurants were average and buffet was very crowded and the food was nothing exciting. I you are looking for a peaceful hotel to relax in then this isn't a good hotel to... More

We visited Coba from March 19th to 26th. Air Transat Option Plus from Montreal, again a great experience except an hour late on the return trip. Cancun airport very well organized as usual except we got a red light at customs but the search went quickly without hassles with professional and courteous staff. Arrival at the resort to the Golden... More

We booked through Westjet Vacations and got the family junior suite. The family suites in building 21A are located close to the main lobby, theater, pool, and buffet. I'd give the food in the buffet a 8 out of 10. Being vegetarians we had plenty of choice, but we gravitated towards the Mexican bar. The dinner restaurants were fantastic...especially the... More
