expected much more than we got; the grounds may be nicely maintained, the rooms were fine, but nothing was a 5 star. buffet food was mediocre at best; ala carte hard to get reservations; it rained one evening and they closed the 24 hr bar/snack spots at 7:30pm (our last night there); a maid ate the complimentary potato chips left...

We stayed at Coba April 7-14th and it's rated as one of our top vacations. The resort and the rooms were kept immaculate. The staff was overwhelmingly friendly and easy going. We loved the Coba lounge in particular and our favorite waitstaff was Mariela and Martha. Food: Our favorite was the buffet at Coba. There was a large selection of... More

We returned from our vacation just two days ago and wish we had never left! We absolutely loved Coba and only have the best of things to say about the staff, the grounds, the pool, the entertainment and the food. Following the advice I read on these reviews, we booked private transportation from the hotel. That was definitely worth the... More

We went to the Bahi Principe Coba for March Break this year. It was a beautiful resort with many amenities. The rooms were attractive and spacious, and the food was great. The service was very good also. However, the resort is enormous and it takes a while to wait for trolleys to take you around to the other hotels and... More

Well, I will make this short-don’t WASTE your money and time, go ELSEWHERE. Gran Bahia Principe Coba is advertised as a 5 stars resort but after our experience, we would not give it 2 stars. It is a joke advertising this resort as a 5 stars. The resort rooms and buffets were just ok but when it comes to service... More

Well we we're there for two weeks (march 23 to april6) and for the most part of the vacation was amazing. We really loved the GBP, the grounds were beautiful and the food was really good which we were suprised by.

We just returned from spending a week at the Bahia Principe Coba (April 7-14, 2008). Our group of 5 consisted of my husband and myself and my brother (mid 40's) and our 2 daughters, 9 and 16.
