We went to Bahia Principe Coba from August 22nd to August 29th. We went to the buffet (breakfast, lunch and dinner) quite often. It was delicious. My father, my brother and I went jet skiing on the beach for 65 U.S $. We also went kayaking for free. My father and I went on one Jet Ski while my brother... More

Gran Bahia Principe Coba My boyfriend and I booked our trip through selloffvacations to Gran Bahia Bahia Principe Coba – Mayan Riviera on the week of August 23-30. We took a red eye flight to Cancun and landed in Cancun at 8:30 but since there is about an hour and half bus ride to the resort, we did not get... More

THIS is what paradise should look like. Our stay at the wonderful Bahia Principe Coba lasted from August 8th to August 27th. We travelled with an extensive group of family and friends; 3 seniors, 8 adults, 3 teens and one child; and we were all enchanted by our incredibly relaxing and entertaining vacation.

It has been our second trip to the resort. We have been there in February this year for one week and have come back in August again for two weeks. During both stays we had wonderful time. The rooms are very spacious, clean and supplied with everything that you need. The room service was great and the staff was always... More

Wasn't going to post because only spent one of two wks before being cast away due to swine F. But upon reading there have been quite a few negative reviews thought i should chip in. THIS RESORT IS THE BEST ALL INCLUSIVE I HAVE VISITED. Compared to equally rated hotels in Cuba, Jamacia, Bahamas, DR (puerta plata & P. cana)... More

I visited Grab Bahia Principe Coba with 7 other friends during the week of August 17th. The title could be a bit misleading in terms of service and the overall presentation of the resort. Like many of the other resorts in the surrounding area, the staff are extremely friendly and work above and beyond to meet your traveling expectations. But... More

We stayed at this property 4 years ago and decided to return due to the high ratings and attractive price. We were disappointed this time but we didn't let it ruin our trip. We had a number of service issues. Check in took us over an hour as we were dropped off at the wrong property and couldn't get a... More

I cannot believe that so many people believe this hotel justifies a 5 star rating. As an ex hotel inspector i can honestly say it is pushing a 3.5!! Service both in reception and buffet is abysmal unless you tip BIG. If you want genuine peoiple with amazing standards go to Cuba. We had so many bad experiences in Coba... More
