I went to GBP in April for 7 nights in April with my mother, husband and 5 year old. We loved it so much that my husband, son, and I returned in July for 12 nights. Both experiences were great. April was a better time to travel because of the humidity in Mexico. It wasn't humid, was sunny, and it... More

We stayed at the Bahia Principe Coba from 8/13/14 to 8/18/14 with our 2 boys, ages 6 & 9. We really don't have a single complaint about the resort. :) Due to plane cancellations we arrived a day late and were able to check right in since our room was already ready. No problems with the desk people or other... More

The Coba is a very large resort which is part of the Bahia Principe complex of the Coba, Akumal, and Tulum and to a bit lesser extent ( only because it is across the road, the Si'an kaan). The Coba is the one which is farthest from the beach and can only really be accessed, without a substantial walk) by... More

Great price, but I guess you get what you pay for. Beautiful place, but service is tough to get. We are not very demanding travelers, but when you ask staff for drinks, towels, and luggage service and never get them, it can be quite frustrating. We also stayed there exactly one year ago and had the best of everything. We... More

Reviewing this for clients/friends that are fellow travelers. We usally travel together but an illness kept me home this time. This was the 4th trip to the Coba for the couples (6th overall with the GB group) Minor bumps with Check In until almost 4P. Right away noted drink service had declined in attentitiveness and speed. Staff seemed more interested... More

It was my first time in Mexico and I was impressed with the friendliness of all the staff on the resort. This resort is big but feels very cozy due to the surrounding vegetation. I got married here and it was exceptional; the wedding coordinator did an excellent job making everything stress free for us and helping make our day... More

Great resort at a great price! Beautiful grounds-very well maintained and good attention to detail. Service was very good, especially Miguel in the Akumal buffet. The food was better than other all inclusive resorts and we enjoyed the tasty drinks at the swim up bars. Only thing that would keep me from returning is the lack or air conditioning in... More

We stayed in the GBP-Coba for a family group vacation. The Resort ground were very well keep. The rooms cleaned daily were nice a cool at night to sleep. The food at the buffets was very good, but the la cart restaurant was nothing special, buffet was better. The cart service from Coba to the beach was a +/- 20-30... More

The GBP Coba is part of a vast complex of hotels, sharing facilities and easily accessed via the numerous golf cart style busses that run regularly between the lobbies, although the winding paths did take a bit of getting used to for travel on foot! The hotel lobbies are individual and beautiful, reflecting the Mayan style. These, together with the... More

It was our first time to Mexico and as a family of four I was a little anxious. I needn't have been. The hotel was amazing. The staff were fantastic and worked so hard. We loved the fact that you could use the facilities at the other hotels. This meant that every day was different. There was always something to... More
