First time in Mexico as a family, first time at this resort. We thought it was pretty good....only a few concerns that we had. First, the good stuff. Lots of space at the hotel, the staff seemed very friendly. Lots of nice breezes coming through as well. The distance to our hotel room wasn't too bad, we walked to and... More

Travelled with my husband and two kids (14&11), flew on the terrific Dreamliner, make sure you come equipped with tonnes of snacks for the journey as they are very expensive on the plane. Booked though Thomson for Coba. Arrived after our long long journey and was kept waiting around for an hour for our room. When we finally reached the... More

Stayed here Apil 8 - 18. First time here and we had the Royal Golden Club package. Don't waste your money on RGC. Buffet was always good with lots of different variety every day. We went to 5 of the specialty restaurants but none were exceptional. The resort is HUGE and you have to take the trolley everywhere you want... More

I just got back from the beautiful Coba resort. I was travelling with my wife and 2 kids(7&18mths) for a wedding. Property- Getting to the property felt like forever especially with the kids. Getting to the airport 3hrs early to check in then a 4 1/2hr flight and another 1 1/2hr shuttle ride. The 1st day was a write off.... More

Coba is the farthest from the ocean. This being said there is little cars that come and pick you up from all over and they are quite frequent. Nothing to it to jump on one and go wherever u want to go on the resort. Keep in mind there is lots of VIP cars and they will not take you... More

Being that it was my second time at this location, I brought a friend to show off the resort to. Now everything was great the first day which was on October 31st, but the following day certain changes made our stay a little annoying. November 1st they changed AKUMAL to a Don Pablo Luxury Resort, so now if you were... More

The staff at Gran(d) Bahia Principe Coba gets my 5 stars. We went there as a "second honeymoon" gift to ourselves 2 years ago. I already had had family that went to this resort a year prior, so I sort of knew the layout and the quality. Let me tell you, this resort went way beyond what I imagined from... More

Visited week of April 6 2015. It was spring break for a few places so the place was packed. A little too busy for me but nothing you can do about that. Overall, nice place with good food both at the buffets and the a lacarte restaurants. Wonderfull people. I wont talk about the beach. It is what it is.... More
