This place is amazing. Starting from the food, restaurants, accommodations, but most importantly the service. We had an amazing time. There were 9 in our group and not one single complaint from anyone. Loved it!!! Will certainly be back.

We got married at the GBP on the beach on August 6th and we stayed at Coba this time. We normally stay at the GBP Akumal or the San Kian and we have been here many times. We stayed at the Coba as the cost overall for everyone coming to the wedding was less. I always knew that I wanted... More

Beautiful place with its own like little town with stores, bar and club, beaches, etc. I would give it a higher rating because it truly was a beautiful place. However service has everything to do with a good experience. My biggest issue was after all day of traveling and being exhausted... More

We spent the first week of August 2014 at the Grand Bahia Principe and would rate our experience very good overall. We booked the Coba resort and found out on arrival that we had been moved to Premier. We did book 2 rooms (hint: this was cheaper than 1 room) and requested them together which they did accommodate. Appears that... More

We were invited to a wedding held at the GBP Coba and spent four nights there. After reading all the reviews, I was not sure what to expect, but for the money we paid, this place far exceeded our expectations! Upon our arrival in Cancun, we breezed through customs and baggage claim, got the green light, and followed the directions... More

We are a young family of 3 and after lots of research chose the Coba for our two week annual August holiday! Having previously stayed at Bahia Principe in Tenerife, we had an idea of what to expect! First opinions: When we arrived at the Coba mid afternoon, we shuttled to the premiere lobby to check in as we had... More

The staff is very professional and friendly. I would strongly recommend Grand Bahia Principe Coba. For the experience I had there, in any country I visit if there's a Grand Bahia, that will be the place I'd like to go

Amazing. Can't wait to return. We went with our kids and took a few of their friends (10 in all) our group ranged in age from 48-14 and there was lots for each person to do. Nobody was ever bored. We got amazing assistance from Fabio at guest relations! He truly made our visit what it was because of his... More

We visited the resort on August 15-22, 2014. The outside of the resort was very impressive. The room was clean and welcoming. The outside pools and beach were wonderful and refreshing. The service at the hotel especially in the buffet was courteous and quick.
