Okay, I lie. I visited in March of 2013. But this past March I went with friends to another property in Riviera Maya and WISHED we had gone back to Grand Bahia Principe Coba. It was the best week of our lives. Amazing hotel staff. Great accommodations. Perfect walking / running trails between the properties. I miss this place and... More

Never written a review for any hotel that I have visited before, however this was by far the best hotel I have ever visited and could not recommend it more! Me and my boyfriend visited this hotel from the 7th of June to the 17th of June and I am still trying to get over the holiday blues now! Smooth... More

Weather was amazing lovely and very hot, a lot of Mosquitos but that couldn't be helped as there was a storm before we... More

I do not complaint and try to see goods and positives in every place I go. I just came back from Grand Bahia Principe Coba where we stayed for a one week vacation. I had already stayed at Gran Bahia Tulum 2 times before and was very impressed by all the amenities. This time we have paid extra money for... More

We have been there twice over the last 6 years and loved it. We love the resort and staff. Lots of outside activity to do (Chichen Itza, Tulum, Playa Del Carmen). Pros: Facilities, service, Food Cons: Good beach for Riviera maya but NOT the best in the world. Tour operator transit takes for ever because resort is a bit far... More

My husband, in-laws and 1 year old stayed at Coba from June 10-17th. My husband and I had previously gone to Coba three years ago for our wedding reception which is why we decided to return with our 1 year old this year. I had read the reviews and was worried about our stay, but overall we did not have... More

Lovely hotel with very friendly staff. No matter how picky you are, you can't complaint about customer service. Rooms are spacious and clean. There is an amazing buffet with a great choice of food and few restaurants as well. I would highly recommend this resort

The resort is really great and all the staff are great. The resort is big but its really easy to to go from one place to another. We really had a great time there. Only downside is the Matis factory that they recommend to go. The jewels are not good quality and they have very very poor , if not... More

I returned from Coba on June 26th, full of colorful mosquitoes' bites all over my face and body. Even more, with burns from mosquitoes repellent, which we had to use non stop. Resort Management did nothing to prevent this disastrous situation, only solution they offered was spray for $19 in their shops. Looking at people wandering around, badly bitten, scratching... More
