I am not going to write in detail every perfect thing about this resort. It was perfect. I'll touch on a few tiny disappointments. Two roaches in bathroom in 7 days. No biggie. Water leak in our closet. Maintenance was on the roof instantly in the middle of the night, during the rain and dark. Dangerous, but service at its... More

I've been to this resort several times and this last time was by far the worst experience I've had there. I'd like to keep this short so I'll Just fly through it: The Food was awful it appeared the chefs had rushed through the meals (especially breakfast) Day after day I tatsed undercooked bacon and flavorless Pasta. The service at... More

We stayed for 9 nights, beautifule grounds, service is good, beach is great, but nowhere to swim. Food is mostly good, but it's all the same everyday, specialty restaurants are great. The pilows are not the best, and tv's are outdated. Would recommend this resort for family with kids.

As part of our 21 day visit to the Gran Riviera, we stayed at this hotel for 11 days. We have stayed at many hotels in mexico over the past 5 years and without exception this hotel which is part of two other adjoining hotels is truly a 5 star rate. From the time we entered the lobby to our... More

We planned to go back again this year but due to expecting a baby we are keeping it local........we have however just booked to go to the Bahia in tenerife in March as a 'last holiday without child'!!

Beautiful grounds but really spread out and rather confusing with many winding paths. Excellent pool options. Good bar options but substandard service. All evening bar options are very serene on this resort. Disco at the Hacienda and maybe an upbeat "party" bar at one of the sister resorts on location. Buffet food is boring and never changes and the buffet... More

My husband and I just returned from Coba. We had a good trip overall. First I want to emphasize the positive points. The resort is beautiful, the grounds impeccable, and the service first-rate. I must mention our 2 favorite bartenders, Rene & Oscar, and Olga, Director of Guest Relations. These three individuals really know hospitality and our trip was better... More

A lot of what I read in other reviews I found to be true. Therefore, I expected the “bad things,” and wasn’t too disappointed with anything. The hotel is a tad far from the Cancun airport (1 hour 10 minute shuttle ride). It may be a better choice when / if the new Tulum airport goes in. CHECK-IN Arrived late... More

My husband and I went to Coba for our honeymoon. Knowing we were going around Christmas (December 18th-25th) we expected it to be quite busy, but we were quite surprised to find it not crowded and not overly busy. We arrived around 10pm on the 18th and were instantly checked in and taken to our room with our luggage. This... More

My significant and I stayed at the Coba from Sunday February 13 to Sunday February 20. We arrived in Cancun and were shuttled from the airport there to shuttle bus service (provided by Sunquest) outside. Beware of the porters that offer to carry your bags or arrange for "discount" trips/taxi service to the resort. These people often have no affiliation... More
