This was our second vacation to the GBP Coba .We had been in 2011 and had absolutely loved it so we decided to return. Once again we had a wonderful vacation but there were some issues that I would like to mention. We were two families with 2 adults and 2 children each ( children's ages ranging between 3 and...

We have just arrived back after two weeks at Coba. It is an amazing resort with incredibly hard working staff, who could never do enough to help. The location and setting was wonderful, we saw so many different animals moving freely on the grounds, adults and children would get very excited every time a group of coatis appeared. The food...

The hotel was amazing, all the staff were fantastic especially Jonathan the entertainer and staff at the flamboyan bar. The buffet restaurant staff and choice of food were fabulous as were le gourmet, the Brazilian and mikado which were our favourites. The pool staff and ground maintenance were constantly cleaning/tidying up. The day time activities at pool and beach certainly... More

I went there with our family for a wedding. We were there for a week in total. The check in process was very poor since there was only 1 person doing the check-ins and we had over 70 in our wedding group. The person doing the check-in wasn't in any rush and didn't smile or seem interested. Some of the... More

This was our first visit to Mexico and the staff here made us want to come back, everyone was friendly and helpful. The facilities for a family are great; a small water park for young children, different clubs and activities for children of different ages. The different ala carte restaurants were good, my favourite was the Brazilian. Although we visited... More

The hotel sells wireless internet and it's pretty pricey and only allowed on a single device. Get yourself a Boingo Account for around $10 and you can log into their Wifi with as many devices as you want. This will save you big money and allow your whole family to have access to internet. When you get home cancel your... More

Excellent experience, hope to go back next year. Very good atmosphere, excellent food, very good customer service, beautiful beach, spacious room, excellent night shows. Loved the children's pool. Lots to do. However I did not like the disco, neither A/C nor the DJ. Overall very good experience.

We stayed seven nights in August and had a great time. Here are the pros and cons: The PROs: •FOOD: The main buffet at Kukulcan was excellent with varied offerings of meats, poultry, fish, salads, and fruits. Mexican was the only weak spot. Mixing it up with a la carte restaurants also made it less monotonous; Mikado was the best... More
