We stayed at the GBP Coba for two weeks from 15/9/14. The hotel is fantastic and the service is excellent. The food in the restaurants was 1st class and the entertainment was good aswell. We were upgraded to the Golden Club and the room was massive with a jacuzzi bath and complimentary bathrobes and slippers. There was always a towel... More

We spent two weeks soaking up the sun on the beach drinking cocktails from the beach bars. The hotel was amazing so beautiful as soon as you pull into the complex everyone was saying wow!! The staff were so friendly and couldn't be more helpful with anything, you never felt pushed into doing anything. We had photos on the beach... More

We visited September 19-26 through Air Transat with access to the Royal Golden Club. This was our second visit. The first time was in the first year it had opened without kids and we had a great time. The hotel seems to have become more family friendly so we decided to come here again with our kids (5 & 1)...

Absolutely fantastic. The setting is a tropical paradise with immaculately kept gardens. Stunning lobby and grounds. This is a resort which is compromised of of 4 hotels. Providing that you are a guest at one of them you have unrestricted access to all of them and their facilities. Multiple pools dotted around the complex some for families, others with Jacuzzis...

Just returned from a 2 week vacation at Grand Bahia Coba resort......where do I start, such an amazing beautiful complex. We had sun, sun, sun for 2 weeks, only a couple of short 5 minute rain showers over the 2 weeks which we tended to lie in to cool off. We had been upgraded to gold premier club as we... More

I booked a package for this hotel expecting a relaxing vacation. First our room was ready until 3pm so we had to wait in the lobby for 2 hours. Then we were told there's no beach in the hotel, but there is in another hotel in the same premises, to which you have to take a train-like bus to. Which... More

Having travelled to many hotels around the world I have to admit this is one of the best I have stayed in. The food at the Coba buffet was fantastic and had such great choice, I've never seen such a large all inclusive buffet before. We only ate at the Coba buffet so can't comment on the others. When we... More

Recently we just got back from Grand Bahia Principe Coba. We found that if you don't show them your tip, you don't receive great service. They will ignore you and sometimes even serve you terribly made drinks. The kids loved the pools, our 6 &3 year olds loved the kids pool, but our older two boys 8 & 10 loved... More
