This was our first visit to Mexico and we had a great holiday, but we felt it could have been even better. First the good points about the hotel - The staff are wonderful, the grounds are immaculate and the restaurant and bar staff were always pleasant and helpful. Although the hotel is huge, we never had any problems in... More

The service is great,grounds well manicured,food is very good especially... More

First of all, let me start off saying: I am a city break girl. Give me Cape Town, New York or Amsterdam any day. I have never been to a resort because I, like many others have been brought up with the idea that these were not a genuine way to travel and embrace culture. I booked a package deal... More

This was not our first time travelling to the Mayan Riviera, but our first time at this resort. Value wise, the all-inclusive package we purchased was great value. The resort is very large and well maintained. And it was nice having the option to travel to the two other resort hotels and being able to access their facilities as well.... More

I stayed here a while back in Oct 2013 so, I will try to make it short... The resort landscape was very nice, service OK, food good (except for the snack shack... raw burgers 3X), rooms standard, entertainment was ok, extremely large resort (too big for us and you have to catch a kart or walk very very far), dolphin...

Overall this resort was very nice! The selection of food was really great, although it would have been nice for there to have been air conditioning in more restaurants. The view on the beach was incredible and they had many different options for entertainment. There was a kid and teen club available and a place to swim with the dolphins.... More

My family of 6 (kids ages 7-18) stayed at the the Gran Bahia Principe Coba in June. The resort was BEAUTIFUL. Very clean and well kept. The buffets had a nice selection and the a la carte dinners were a nice treat - we especially liked Oasis. The Entertainment Staff made our trip that much better. They were energetic and... More

Short and sweet: This was our 9th time at the Bahia Principe Complex, we have stayed at the Tulum, Akumal, Sian Kaan, and the Coba. This past trip of 10 days was at the Coba which is our favourite as well as Sian Kaan but can't go wrong with any of them, it's just a personal choice. The food, staff,... More
