Grounds on this huge resort are extremely well maintained and beautiful. Staff is very very friendly and genuine. Rooms were excellent and clean. Enjoyed the pools and the food was great. First night there they actually served roast duckling at the buffet. We enjoyed the Japanese restaurant and also the Seafood Restaurant. One draw back (as all resorts) was the... More

This was the second year in a row that we stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Coba in Riviera Maya Mexico, Feb 1st thru Feb 11, 2015. Although there had been some changes in the Grand Bahia complex since our last stay, it didn't keep us from having a great time again. The Grand Bahia Akumal resort w/its' beach is... More

Once again, loved this property. Awesome food, beautiful people, and the food was great!!....This was our 4th time at this resort...one of our favourites! Only thing that we did not like was that there were never any chairs around the pools because others placed their towels on them and then did not use them. Bahia Prinicipe is always a great... More

I have stayed here on 3 occassions. It is a very large resort- bring good shoes. The food was good and always fresh. Large selection. Drinks were premium and better than most all inclusives in area Would return.

Second stay in a Grand Bahia Principe (first one was in Jamaica), and it confirms what we were thinking : the standards in the Grand Bahia Resorts are very high!!! All the people were smiling, the food was excellent and tasty, beach, rooms, lobby, restaurant are always clean. It's all we can expect for vacations : sun, smiles, choices, relax... More

We were a group of 12 people staying in the Coba section of the resort for 14 days. We ate in the buffet for all breakfasts and most lunches and sat in the same area every day. Our server's name was Jael and she was amazing, always pleasant, and very friendly. We actually missed her when we left. We enjoyed... More

I have visited a few of the Bahia Principe properties and have never been dissapointed. This property i.e. Grand Bahia Principe was the best so far. We stayed March 2013 - during March break (kids break from school). We stayed in Coba which is the newest of the three resorts within the property. They have 4 resorts 3 within the... More

One of the many things that impressed me about the Grand Bahia Principe Coba was that it met most peoples needs, most of the time, bearing in mind that you can also use the Tulum hotel facilities on the same huge site. We prefer a relatively quiet spot on or near the beach during the day. No problem finding that... More

The staff was friendly, the service was generally very good. However, housekeeping was hit and miss. After a few days of asking for more towels, because one hand towel was not enough for 3, I gave up. On the day we checked in the shower was dirty so I cleaned it up myself because it was getting late. One day... More

To begin I just want to say that we have visited several other resorts in Mexico and have returned to the Grand Bahia for the third time, the first time we stayed at and enjoyed Tulum, but in 2013 we returned with our daughter, son in-law, son and daughter in-law and were so happy with the resort we decided to...
