Pros: Beach was nice - did not have a problem finding chairs/umbrellas and we enjoyed the wave-free ocean (some spots towards Akumal beach were more rocky than Coba beach). Had to...

My family and I spent the Christmas week at the Coba - the reason being that my husband of 52 happy years had passed away just a few months before. Christmas without him would have been too painful. The holiday was a very happy (for me bitter-sweet) experience. What the resort and the excellent staff offered was unbelievable. I even...

My wife and I stayed for 8 days. So much to do in that amount of time. I really enjoyed the Don Pablo Gourmet restaurant. The resort itself is very large, but is easily accessible with the many trolleys that travel the entire property. There was always a food and beverage place nearby no matter where you were on the...

We stayed here in March for 10 nights. What a lovely hotel. 99% of the staff were absolutely excellent, particularly the entertainment staff, who work hard to ensure you are having a good time, but without being pushy. Also the buffet staff were great and went out of their way to find gluten free options for two of our children....
