I choose this hotel because of the golf course. I didn't want a beach holiday we wanted to golf. The course is beautiful but very disorganized. During our week we had two tee times canceled because , and I quote" we had a big group that wanted to play" . I got nowhere trying to complain about this treatment. We... More

We had a fantastic holiday at Bahia Principe Coba, however we had a few issues, some of which are echoed in previous posts. Our check in was smooth, and we were allocated a room in villa 29. We pre-paid for an upgrade to a suite but it appears that all rooms in Coba are suites so I don’t really know... More

We stayed at the Gran Bahia Principe Coba October 31st to Nov 7th 2010 and weren't too impressed. The resort was clean well groomed and had a fabulous beach and great pools, that said the food was so non descript we went without many meals rather than having our pallets bored to death, the food didin't make us sick, so...

This resort is definitely a great choice for the area. The stay at one and play at the other 2 was also a welcome treat. Lots of things for everyone to do, though getting the kids off the beach was a challenge. The food was excellent and the rooms were great. We'd definitely go again!

After a month of checking out trip advisor reviews, my wife and I chose Gran Bahia Principe Coba. The reviews were too good and the price a real bargain for the Mayan Riviera. We went through Apple Vacations and were wisked from the airport to the resort in a record time of one hour and fifteen minutes. Wow!! Stayed from... More
