Stayed for one week at Coba with my boyfriend. I have stayed at akumel when I was a kid with my family and it was beautiful, that is why I wanted to go back ten plus years later. I was very disappointed. The food was very good the buffets were all amazing and the a la carte restaurants were good,...

We had a wonderful vacation at the Grand Bahia Principe Coba. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We stayed in building 18 which was close to the pool with the swim up bar. Since the ocean is a good walk/shuttle away it was nice to have the pool right by us. Almost every room at Coba is close to...

Excellent resort!! Stayed at GBP Tulum before and Coba is even better as the shuttle drops you at a much better beach. Tulum beach is rocky..you have to walk a bit south to get to the real nice part. The food in this resort is absolutely amazing. My parent's first time outside of Cuba and they litteraly could not eat...

Always a great stay at the Coba Premier and Golden lobbys. The food is wonderful. The service is wonderful. The rooms are great. My only complaint is out of the hotels control and that is guests with children taking their children to the swim up bars. Leaving the children to splash and scream at the bar area when child friendly...

We just got back yesterday from Coba. It was overall a pleasant trip and we enjoyed the beauty of the resort and delicious drinks. We were there for our wedding, along with 18 people in our group.

We visited here as a family of 4 at Christmas. 2 adults, 1 teen, 1 child. Unfortunately the positives of this holiday were outweighed by the negatives. Positives: Great landscapes, gardens, evening entertainment (at Tulum) beautiful pools and beach. Good food. Some staff are reasonably pleasant, but are worked exceptionally hard. Negatives: Watch was stolen from room. This was an...
