We stayed for 11 nights and loved every minute of it! The staff are all so nice and friendly and will bend over backwards for you. The food and drink was always really good with lots of choice, including the a la carte restaurants. The rooms are huge and cleaned on a daily basis, the mini fridge in the room... More

This was my first ever holiday so it is hard for me to compare it to other places. Overall our trip was very very good , the food is amazing and the buffet offers something different every day. good nightlife for the teenagers at the disco and a casino for the adults. Good location for being close to the Mayan... More

My family and I had a fun time. But I cannot return or recommend it because this is a below average beach for Mexico and the Carribean. 3/4 of the beach is covered in seaweed and there are not enough people cleaning it up to make much difference. The northernmost 2/3 of the beach is very rough and they have... More

Just got back from Coba where our family had booked 3 rooms. Overall we had a nice vacation, however we had some concerns that impacted on our satisfaction with this resort. Positive: Staff were friendly and mostly helpful. Food Service staff were very hard working and accommodating. I noticed lots of people did not tip at meals or for drinks.... More

I have traveled all over the world but it has been a long time since I was on such a lovely property/all inclusive. The resort, staff, workers, spa treatments and food were amazing! I will definitely go again and most likely a bit off season for best prices.

We just returned from our pre-Christmas trip to the Coba. This is our 5th or 6th visit to this property and we were not disappointed. Yes, there have been a couple of changes, like you cannot go to the restaurants at the Akumal property and they want you to go to the beach at the Tulum, but, the Coba beach... More

Over all, I would say our vacation was a pleasant one at the Coba. However, with that said there are a lot of little things that need tweaking that would have made our stay better. I don't like to be one of those picky reviewers, but my husband and I have both traveled frequently and stayed at many all inclusive... More

This resort was a great choice for my first time in Mexico. I have been to a Grand Bahia before in Jamaica earlier this year and had a very pleasant experience so wanted to stay at another.
