Everything is great. Food is really good. Service is beyond exceptional. The grounds and buildings are very attractive and everything is kept very clean and neat. The "worst" part of the resort is the evening shows but I have found that I don't enjoy shows at any resorts. Overall, I would highly recommend this resort to anybody. We found very... More

Just returned from a week at GBP-Coba and had a great time. Knowing that I read hundreds of Tripadvisor reviews before I booked his hotel, I wanted to add my two cents. First and foremost - realize that this resort is about 2 hours south of Cancun, and consider this additional travel time when booking your vacation. It gets to... More

Rooms were great... but our friends tub didn't hold water and our refridgerator didn't make things cold... we asked for repairs a few times - their tub... More

Travelled to Gran Bahia December 6-13, 2009 through Transat Holidays. We upgraded to Royal Golden, which included some perks such as free internet. The hotel complex has 3 hotels, The Coba, The Akumal and Tulum. You are free to travel to all three Resorts. The Resort is spread out and for those who don't feel like walking, there is transportation... More

I had never done an all inclusive in my life (I have previously travelled all over asia where they are not common) and really didn't know what to expect. I had been told that this part of Mexico was very very touristy and that all inclusives tend to... More
