This resort was a great choice for my first time in Mexico. I have been to a Grand Bahia before in Jamaica earlier this year and had a very pleasant experience so wanted to stay at another. Great online price and great reviews led me to choose this one. Checking in was quick and fast, our room was still being... More

This was our third trip to Coba. Reasons were the same - beautiful and very well kept grounds, very good service, good and safe food, great beach (we are not pool people). Despite some little drawbacks we we'll keep going back over and over. Personnel is polite, hard working and professional ( regardless they are tipped or not, at least... More

Could not fault a thing other then premier club staff trying day after day to get us to spend 2 hours with them. We also thought that the use of the safe should've been included in the holiday cost or added to, as trying to keep cash aside was difficult as there's so much to do! Hotel is beautiful and... More

Every year me and my husband celebrate our wedding anniversary at the Coba resort. This was our 9th time here. As always it was a great experience. The Gran Bahia Principe resort has incredibly helpful and friendly staff, immaculately maintained grounds, exceptionally clean rooms and delicious food at the buffets and specialty restaurants! The people from the front end are... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this resort from December 7 - December 14. We had an incredible time and I would absolutely return ! Firstly, the resort is relatively far from the airport. The bus made a couple stops before Coba so it took about 1.5hrs. This is definitely a turn-off for some people so just be prepared for... More

I will start off with all my great experiences. 1. Hotel / Resort - clean and never find garbage on the ground. Well maintained and very well kept. 2. Food - cannot complain, always fresh and consistant (very important). A La Cartes was not as good as the buffets except for the Japanese restaurant. That was our best meal during... More

I Checked in last night to the Coba after standing in line for an HOUR, no drinks were severed to us, no one came by to tell us about the hotel while we waited. After an hour wait, I find out that they are over booked and moving me for one night to the "luxury resort" across the road. Normally... More

Spent most time at gorgeous pool, trips to beach-great sand, small fish off breakfront-shallow enough to see without snorkel equip. Mango dacquiris and mango margeritas, tasty buffets, good selection of ala carte restaurants.

What can I say, AMAZING! Hotel is brilliant, location is out of this world. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful, excellent choice in food in the buffet halls, plenty of A la carte choices too, my favourite was the Japanese. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
