I have been to Mexico about 4 times now and the Gran Bahia Principe Coba was by far the best resort I have ever been to. We didnt spend much time in the room (which was huge and very nice), nor did we have the maids clean very often, but when they did, they did a very thorough job! The... More

I went to Bahia Principe earlier this year on my first trip to Mexico and am planning to go back as soon as possible! The hotel was fabulous with a great choice of restaurants and lovely rooms. However, the best thing about the resort has to be the animation team. Working tirelessley, Sergio and his team not only looked after... More

Just got back last night. Had a great time. Have vacationed at 20+ all inclusive "5 star resorts" throughout the Caribbean and thought Coba was one of the best. Don't hesitate to book a trip here. With the numerous reviews offered I don't have much new to add other then to comment on a few issues that I was concerned... More

Nothing exciting on site. No animation. Lazy shows. You have to take a shuttle to the beach wich is limited and near the coral barrier (good if you dive, bad if you only want to swim without loosing a foot...). But at least, good food.

The resort was immaculate from the beautiful suite I enjoyed (30523 Coba) to the excellent food and drink. We had 3 a la carte meals, at Le Gourmet, Don Pablo and the Italian La Dolce Vita, they were all fabulous but enjoyed the Italian on our last night the best. My room had a broken railing on the balcony which... More

I have been to this resort twice and will return again for many reasons but the main one being the Animation Team at the Coba. Sergio, Gabriel (Baby-face), Sofia, Aaron, Gabi, Francisco (Paco) and Ivan are truly brilliant. They work very long hours- they start the day at the pool, setting up and playing games, then move to the terrace... More
