Arrived in the dark and the check in went quickly. We boarded a shuttle that took us to the general area of our room and dropped us off with a vague wave towards our rooms. That wasn't good enough as we spent the next 20 minutes searching in vain for our building. Finally got some help from an employee. Rooms...

Please read the Privilege section if nothing else!! We stayed at the Bahia Coba the week of March 14. This is our 8th trip to the Mayan Riviera, we were married at the Barcelo, have stayed there a few times, as well as Grand Palladium, Catalonia etc. We had the "Royal Golden" package, so upon arrival we were transferred to...

Pro: Huge resort, large selection of great buffet food, Mexican and Brazilian restaurant for dinner are recommended, live entertainment at night, friendly staff, frequent tram for transportation between hotel and beach or other location, beach is calm for kids (big rocks at the outer rim to block waves), beach staffs work very hard to clean seaweed to acceptable condition. Con:...

My family and I recently stayed at this resort (Grand Bahia Principle Coba). When we first arrived, all of us were stunned with the entrance. I walked up to the concierge desk to check-in and was immediately offered a drink. Are reservations were messed up (not sure who was at fault) so we messed around for a couple hours trying...

March break 2017. Beautiful properties, very large with three complexes. We stayed at the Coba, which is the only one not on the beach. The food was good at the mainstay Buffett, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We only tried two of the specialty restaurants. The Italian was good, the seafood restaurant was exceptional. A very nice touch was...

The Coba is a perfectly fine resort but depending on your style of vacation may not be what you are looking for, and there are better choices along the Mayan Riviera. First off it is a long haul from Cancun airport, well over an hour. Not a huge deal, but if you've had long flight with kids, get delayed at...
