Bad smell in the room, I could barely breathe, we had to keep the windows open almost all the time 2. Good room service though, room and toilet very clean 3. Bad customer service at reception desk, nobody would smile,... More

Massive hotel complex with over 3000 rooms across the three hotels, but it never felt busy or in need of more space. The staff show great customer service, always happy and smiling and want to make your experience positive. Buffet and restaurant food really good, sometimes exceptional. Rooms cleaned, linen and towels changed everyday. Small gripes are $5 per day... More

This property was very large but I loved every inch of it! You can easily get a ride on the carts that come by constantly. Everything was clean and well maintained. The food was much better than other resorts we have been to. The staff was so friendly and helpful! There were so many pools that they never seemed crowded.... More

We had never travelled to Mexico before, and this holiday was a special one as we went with our children aged 20 & 17 but also with my wife's parents who are 79 & 82 so a real mix of ages and requirements. The hotel complex is massive and split into 3 areas all of which you are able to... More

Just returned from a 2 week holiday at this amazing all inclusive complex. Not our "usual" type of holiday at all and initially we were slightly daunted by the size of the complex which is actually 3 hotels spread over an enormous site. However, the size of the site means you will be able to find whatever is "your thing"... More

We visited this hotel from 06/07/14 - 20/04/17. On first sight, the complex is well maintained and HUGE! You really need the buggy's to get round the complex as it is that hot and humid it is nearly impossible to walk without all moisture in your body pouring out of you! The rooms and nice and spacious and cleaned every... More

Just returned from 2 weeks at the Coba with my husband, 16 yr old daughter and my parents and all 5 of us had a superb and memorable holiday. Fabulous resort, with guests having the benefit of so much beach and so many pools and restaurants. We stayed in 2 adjacent Junior Club Suites at the Coba and found them... More

Amazing holiday, hotel was great. Mexican staff very nice and helpful always pleasant. Food great especially the main buffet reastaurant, something for every tastebud. Lovely fresh fruit. Some al-a-carte restaurants better that others. Rooms were clean, only downside is that the humidity did make the rooms smell damp, nothing the hotel can do as the air conditioning is needed greatly.... More
