Spent most time at gorgeous pool, trips to beach-great sand, small fish off breakfront-shallow enough to see without snorkel equip. Mango dacquiris and mango margeritas, tasty buffets, good selection of ala carte restaurants.

What can I say, AMAZING! Hotel is brilliant, location is out of this world. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful, excellent choice in food in the buffet halls, plenty of A la carte choices too, my favourite was the Japanese. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

To start off with I have to thank Hector Ubiera for the special evening he provided for myself and 12 friends. It was a wonderful night in a private room with a mariachi band, excellent service and food. A night to remember at the Le Gourmet Restaurant. He also arranged a terrific Birthday Party for one of the members for... More

I stayed at this hotel with my wife, 2 kids (ages 3 and 1) and mother in law the week of Dec 13. We enjoyed our stay overall, but there were a few shortcomings, mainly the maid service. One of the reasons I chose this resort was I spent a week at the Gran Bahia in Punta Cana a few... More

Overall, I do not regret my decision to choose Coba for a 10 day family vacation. The staff here are very hospitable, and the grounds are impressive. But this is TripAdvisor, so readers are expecting some sort of detailed opinion. Here are some points: - Do not come here to sleep. The tiled floors (in and outside the rooms) allow... More

This was our second time here and it was even better than the first. Take the cenote excursion with Daniel and Yolo, it will blow your mind. The beach is beautiful, the Tulum ruins are a short ride away. The staff is very friendly and the hotel itself is gorgeous. One of the best all-inclusives I've ever experienced ...

We stayed at the Grand Bahia Principe Coba the week of December 13 to 20. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Our room was located in 15a, close to the entertainement pool and a short walk to the Buffet/Main Lobby. Our room was really big and extremely clean. Our mini bar was replenished daily and hot water and towels... More

We just got back from our wonderful vacation at the Coba resort on December 15, 2014. It was our first time at the Mayan Riviera and it was a great experience. We had a nice clean room, there was transportation by a cute little train that goes around the resort. However, we figured out that we could walk from our... More
