The staff are fantastic, all very friendly and helpful. Did not see one sour... More

I had a great time. I had more than excellent, attentive service. I was there for 8 days. It was 8 days of happiness. I would go back tomorrow. I didn't know how stressed things are here until you go away. The hotel staff is great as well as other guests. Go you won't be dissapointed.

For the past 4 years, I have been going to Coba. I go twice a year (December & March). However, when I went this year, I tried Tulum because i was told by Travel Agency that Coba was full. Tulum is ok.The people are great... but I still spent all me time at Coba. Over the years, I have gotten... More

My friend and I came here for a week from 7-14 December and flew with First Choice on a Thomson flight from Birmingham which had a stopover in Manchester on the way out. This wasn't great as it added about 3 hours to our outbound flight and I think next time we might just fly from Manchester to start with... More

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
